This year was my very first Christmas away from home. We went to Mount Pleasant, TX to spend the holiday with Daniel's family. The whole crew showed for our Cates Christmas. Jacob, Daniel's older brother came in from Austin. We visited with both sides of the family and really just relaxed and enjoyed the time off with each other. Texas definitely experienced the craziest weather in a while - tornadoes and all. We were very grateful to be in East Texas during the storms. Daniel got a much needed Star Wars shirt (we will see if he wears it) & I got the most comfortable pair of Nike (free fly knits). I can't forget the best part: Daniel's mom surprised us all with Nerf Guns and ammo for a hilarious weekend filled with shooting each other and dodging foam bullets. When we got home the Monday after Christmas, we exchanged our gifts to each other. He went ALL out at one of my favorite stores (Alex & Afton Vintedge) and gave me an ivory, fluffy cocoon jacket, the most gorgeous red Kaftan and another turban (this one was baby blue). He was so surprised when he opened his Sean Brock cookbook and super warm coat for the winter months.
For NYE, my sweet hubby trekked down to Conroe with me (Sean tagged along) and spent one night with my family for our little holiday celebration. Allison and Adam (my older sister & brother-in-law) gave him his VERY desired Palladium boots and me (a total surprise) Verismo! We were so fortunate for a gifted Christmas but more importantly, the time we got to spend relaxing with our loved ones. I have thoroughly enjoyed this 2015 holiday and can't wait to see what 2016 has in store for us. Flea Style will be in Dallas & Houston and I am counting down the minutes until I can throw on my work boots and get cracking at Fair Park on March 12!
See you soon!
I'm Alyssa, thanks for stopping by! A few things: I enjoy laughing, making youtube videos and thrift shopping. Currently listening to "Everything Now" by Arcade Fire. I like my coffee black and my preferred method of maxin' & relaxin' is with my husband and pup.
