Newlywed Christmas

Patrick and I had our first Christmas as a married couple. We decided to spend this Christmas just the two of us and the dogs. It would have been nice to spend Christmas surrounded by family but a low key holiday was a good thing this year.
Once we woke up we went straight to the tree:

And I was in charge of divvying up the gifts! I’ve had this “job” ever since I was little and love it! This year we decided to be earth friendly and instead of wrapping gifts in the traditional wrapping paper, we reused some of the shopping bags laying around the house 🙂
We let the dogs open their gifts first:
and of course they had to sample some of the goodies Santa left in their stockings:

After the dogs were done it was our turn. I tore into my stocking to see what “Santa” left me. I must say my stocking is awesome!

“Santa” left me all kinds of goodies. Here are a look at a few of them.
Some little umbrellas to put in my cocktails. My husband and I have a trip to St. Maarten planned so these will come in handy as we prepare for the trip!

Everyone knows I’m a big sauce girl so I was psyched to see these babies in my stocking. I got some Trappist Pomegranate Jelly (so excited to try this), Sweet Baby Rays Honey Chipotle BBQ sauce, and A1 Supreme Garlic Sauce!

Presents were opened, stockings emptied and the dogs playing with their toys; the humans needed some coffee. I had a cup of java, with a squirt of vanilla flavoring and frothed milk. It was the first time I used my new frother and it was GREAT!
I had my coffee in a Christmas mug:
We didn’t eat breakfast so by the time lunch rolled around we were hungry. I really wanted to have leftovers from our Christmas eve meal and that is exactly what we did:
Next it was movie time! We settled on, Four Christmases which we both thought was good. How can you go wrong with Vince Vaughn!
Our Christmas bottle of Champagne was opened to enjoy during the movie. Once of my fav’s Veuve Clicquot.
So good, I love the bubbly!
Presents were opened, coffee drank, lunch digested, movie watched, champagne drank and happy dogs. Only one thing left:
A Santa and dog nap:
Hope everyone had a great holiday! I know I did and I’m looking forward for more to come with my husband. He truly is my best friend and I am so lucky to have found him!

    So cute : ) It was our first Christmas together too, it was great. I think it'd be sweet to spend it at home together. Glad your holiday was wonderful!
