Weekend Review

This weekend was full of Holiday celebrations!!
I was off work on Friday and did some much needed cleaning at the house in the morning. We have been so busy with Christmas shopping, decorating and attending events we kinda let the house get messy. We couldn't take it any longer so I got to work and it looks a lot better. Friday afternoon, my friend and I met my sister in San Francisco and did some shopping. After a little shopping and a quick stop by my sister's apartment we were off to meet some more friends and attend The Nutcracker put on by the SF Ballet. This has become a yearly tradition amongst our girl friends and is always so much fun. After the performance, we head across the street to a swanky little restaurant/bar and get a few drinks. Such a great way to spend a Friday night during the holiday season!!

Most of the girls after The Nutcracker
Saturday morning I ran some errands and then came home to take a nap. Once I woke up I got ready to go to Sacramento for the night to have another girls night/ornament exchange/birthday celebration. It was so great to catch up with a bunch of the gals (all sorority sisters from college). We planned on going bowling but ended up staying in because we were all so chatty!!

We spoiled the Birthday Girl with 3 different cakes
Sunday I slept in until 10:45!!! I must have been really sleepy. I assisted my sister with a photo shoot for one of my friend's and her family in Sacramento and then we went to my favorite sushi restaurant in Sacramento. Once I got home, I wrapped all the presents, decorated our Christmas tree (finally!!) and got ready for the upcoming week!! (Sunday night I realized on Saturday night I accidentally took a pill my doctor gave me to help get rid of migraines and knocks you out instead of the pill I needed to take...that explains why I slept so late!!)
