auld lang syne

hi, sweet readers! i hope y'all had truly wonderful christmases, wherever you are.  i spent christmas holed up in a cabin in the mountains outside of asheville, north caroline with my parents and my younger sister.  such a wonderful time, and especially nice since it is our last christmas just the four of us {next christmas, i'll be a mrs.!} we took a candlit tour of the biltmore estate {awe-inspiring, jaw-dropping decadent goodness}, went wine tasting, ate delicious food and drank homemade hot cocoa, watched about a million christmas movies, killed time browsing in darling little shops, and did lots and lots of wedding planning.

santa spoiled the beau and me rotten.  i got new orange torys {abbeys, not revas} and lots of fun kitchen gadgetry, including a gorgeous caribbean blue dutch oven. i've been wanting one for ages. the beau's parents got us a new blu-ray dvd player and between them and my sister, we've already amassed quite the little blu-ray movie and tv show collection. our families were way too generous, per usual.

we are off to sunny south beach for a few days of fun and warm weather to ring in 2011.  when i'm back, i'll be revealing a few changes to the ole blogeroo.  nothing too drastic, just trying to keep y'all on your toes! i hope you all have a wonderful new year's, whether your tickling champy at a black-tie bash or gorging on chinese food in your pj's {both sound pretty fun to me!}. see you in 2011!
