Christmas Stolen Moments…


HI EVERYBODY!! I’m back to Blogger. I really honestly missed blogging. It has become such a part of me & my everyday routine that I was feeling the loss. It has been an absolute crazy few days and a blizzard even made a guest appearance. Yup a full 2 feet of snow blizzard in lower New York. It was up to my knees when I was trudging through the snow to my parent’s house to get the snow shovel for CJ.  It was soo unbelievably cold!! Hopefully it’ll start melting & finally the plow can really do some cleaning.

But Christmas was just wonderful. It was a lot of running around because this is really the first year I’ve had a boyfriend for the holidays. I didn’t realize how many stops needed to be made or how many presents needed to be given & whew…it was a SUPER long day. I hope I’m not getting sick but I’ve been nauseous as hell for the past few days. Hopefully as things calm down before the New Year my tummy will ease.

I did rack up a few special Christmas Moments that I would love to share with all of you too! Here it goes:

~Somehow my Mom hinted to CJ that I wanted a key necklace for Christmas. Well…he actually got me a key locket necklace that I have barely taken off in the past 3 days. It’s was so unexpected & so beautiful I cried. I felt just like Peggy Sue in “Peggy Sue got married” with the locket. It’s soo pretty!! I love how he got our picture engraved in it. <3 ~

~Hearing people in a bar on Christmas Eve scream “MERRY CHRISTMAS” to the tune of the entire song, “Smells like Teen Spirit” by Nirvana. It was a unique experience. ~

~Seeing my parents’ eyes light up when they opened the presents I got them. I got my Mom her favorite movie, “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” & my dad’s favorite movie, “Aeonflux”!~

~This was CJ’s morning commute today. Apparently NY plow people were on strike?? This was soo bad but he’s all safe & sound now.

~I jumped for joy when I got a Wii for Christmas. I might be the last person to get one but I’ve always wanted one. It’s red too. My favorite color!! =) Thanks MOM!!~

~I slept my first night in my new place!! I’ve never had a Queen’s sized bed before so it was glorious to have all the room!!!! No more Twin for me. ~

~My uncle staying longer so I’d get to see him before he left to go back to NYC. I didn’t get to see him on Thanksgiving. ~
 ~ Having CJ with me all the steps of the way. He had a rose in his car for me too on Christmas Eve. It was so sweet.~

I have to say that it’s nice to get back to normal these days. I’m going to hit up some sales tomorrow for the condo & get ready for New Years!! I don’t have the internet in my new place yet so I’m at my parents right now. I’ll be trudging through the snow soon! GOODNIGHT! It’s good to be back! =)

What were your Christmas Stolen Moments?

my boyfriend and I listened to "holidays on ice" by david sedaris (the audiobook) for our commute between families, and it was a nice relaxing listen!

Glad to hear you had a wonderful Christmas.

I loved seeing Zoe (my 2 yo daughter) open up all of her presents - definitely my favourite part of the day.

my boyfriend lives in Staten Island - NOT 1 side street is plowed - he can't leave his house - well he has to walk to bus stop to get to work - even in jersey they usually are SO good with the plow, NOT this time - INSANE

i'm SO happy Christmas went so well! *hugs*

Awww...Melanie it sounds like you had the most magical Christmas EVER!

I think that my Christmas Stolen Moment would have to be when my two-year-old nephew dragged the toy kitchen I bought him for Christmas into the kitchen where I was making breakfast so he could cook with me. LOVE! :)

My own personal stolen moment was probably getting to spend a big chunk of yesterday (and a bit of today) with the guy I've been crushing on for a few months now. That was nice.

Sounds like you had an awesome Christmas - I'm glad. You deserve it. :)
