Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. Went to Orange County to celebrate  with my dad's side of the family. It's crazy to think that I used to be the oldest of 6 cousins 20 years ago and now I'm the oldest of 15 cousins. But it was great seeing relatives that I don't get to see all the time. Plus we had some special guests in the house. My sister's boyfriend went with us and one of my cousins boyfriends also made an appearance. The more the merrier I say.
 Besides food coma inducing amounts of food and presents, there were some family games. Including an intense game of Name That Tune. I think I might have scarred my sister a little bit with my "I know what song that is!" freak outs. I am to Name that Tune to what Will & Grace are to charades. At one point, we were even Rick Rolled. Well, more like my aunt picked Rick Astley's"Never Gonna Give You Up" as one of the songs.
I will proudly say that my team won and I was MVP. Oh, yeah.
 Who knows their top 40 hits? I do! I do!

Also my Christmas outfit was grandma approved. Yay!
I was actually inspired by this Kate Spade ad from last year:

The cool thing is that I already had the dress hanging in my closet and the jacket (to cover the arms) is from 5 years ago. I was so glad that the jacket fits, since the last time I wore it was three years ago. The only things I bought for the outfit were the bright red tights, which I might be rocking more frequently and the flower puff pin. Originally I wasn't going to add the pin, but I'm glad I did. A nice alternative to a necklace. I'm definitely going to have to find another place to rock out this outfit again. 

I will leave you with some of the glorious food (aka: food porn) that was eaten yesterday.
I will say I had a kick-ass lunch today. Thanks Christmas dinner leftovers!
