Our Christmas Weekend

This past weekend, for Christmas, my amazing husband took me out for a swanky weekend in L.A. as a Christmas present. We stayed in a fancy hotel, the most glorious and comfortable bed, we ordered room service, drank fine wine, and spent Christmas Eve by the beach at Santa Monica Pier. It was perfection! What can I say, he knows me well ;) I wanted to share a few pictures of our little outing with you guys.

Lucas ordered lamb during our room service, and I had a wonderful filet.

I absolutely swoon when my husband does romantic things like this- so cute!

There was also a cold bottle of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries waiting for us upon our arrival. So yummy! The nut covered ones were filled with cheesecake, as well. Indulgence!

In the morning, we went to Santa Monica. It was so warm and sunny out! On Christmas Eve! I'm used to spending Christmas in Colorado, so 75 degrees on Christmas is pretty much a tropical vacation.

We thought this dinosaur statue on the Promenade was quite funny. He drank *way* too much last night.

Obligatory sunset beach couple picture.

We went to Bubba Gumps for dinner and had the most AMAZING cocktails. So delicious, and you get to keep the glasses for souveniers! Score.

My husband is so cute. :3

There is a big arcade on the pier, so we got a few handfuls of quarters and played some games. We KILLED House of the Dead.

Lucas terminatin'.

When we got back to the hotel, we relaxed with some wine and Cartoon Network.

Yeah, he's goofy like that :P

But I am too :P

I think we had a little too much fun playing with the rose petals.

On Christmas morning, we enjoyed some delicious waffles in the hotel restaurant.

Nom Nom Nom.

And then it was time to go home.... after an amazing weekend!

I hope you all had an amazing holiday as well, whatever you celebrate. I know we did! My parents are now here in California for a visit and I'm having a blast. It's always so great to see them, and I know we'll have lots of fun adventures too!



  1. Okay seriously, you just reek of fabulousness

  2. You look soo beautiful! What a awesome holiday post - it looks amazing.

  3. Not your typical Christmas, but certainly a romantic one. I for one would want to go to a snowy place for Christmas. I had way to much California air to last me a lifetime. I want Christmas to be like the movies,a White winter land. Tell your hubby good job! And I hope you guys have a nice New years eve as well!
