This was our first Christmas together. We got a tree and decorations from Canadian Tire (the most Canadian store ever besides The Real Canadian Superstore hahaha which is where we get our groceries from #CanadianAF) and then my mom bought me a few beautiful flowers for it as well and brought up a few decorations that she had set aside for me. We got our stockings from Walmart #onabudget and then we were all set!

A close up of our tree! We went with a more rustic/gold theme but I know with more years to come, my tree will look more like my moms…just a whole bunch of ornaments that have memoriesΒ  behind them πŸ™‚ Honestly, I cannot wait for those days even though I know my OCD will not like it!

This morning I made homemade cinnamon buns! My first time ever and they were delicious! (you can even ask my boyfriend…he ate 2!)

Fresh out of the oven, I lathered on homemade cream cheese frosting. Best Decision Ever!

And breakfast was served! Not nutritious what so ever, but its Christmas! If you aren’t stuffed full of sugary sweets by 10 am you did something wrong!

Once we were done breakfast and presents I went and got ready. It was our first Christmas without our parents (going home to see them on Christmas break from school) so my boss asked us if we wanted to come over form Christmas dinner. We said yes, of course! She has a lovely family and who could say no to great company on Christmas! This was also my first Christmas where I ate dinner in real clothes! Normally I am in my pj’s all day!

Dinner was at 1 pm and we stayed until 4:30 pm or so. Now we have just been hanging out in our pj’s all night and having some wine (well wine for me … beer for the boy) and watching The Office. One of the greatest shows of all time, so you should definitely check it out, its on Netflix! I eventually went and took a relaxing bath and then Jacob got to play his video game like a little child πŸ™‚

Now I am writing this to you my friends because I wanted to share my Christmas with you and wish you a blessed one as well. I hope you have enjoyed time with loved ones and your tummies are full of good food! Let me know how your day went if you want in the comments below, I would love to hear about what you got up too!

Merry Christmas! You will hear from me again before the new year don’t you worry!

P.S I love you mom and dad, see you soon ❀

Until next time,

xoxo

Snow covered trees | Banff

Hello friends,

Ever since I can remember I have always had an obsession with snow covered trees. It wasn’t until I moved away from my hometown that I realized the snow doesn’t stay on trees everywhere and that I was actually quite lucky to be able to grow up with snow covered forests in the winter.

Here are a few pictures of snowy trees in the high mountains of Banff Canada.
