I love the holidays because it means I get to go home and spend the most joyous time of the year with my loved ones. I especially love the annual Xmas get together the girls and I have every year. We’ve all been friends since middle school (some of us even elementary!) and we’ve seen each other grow. I don’t wanna get all cheesy cause that’s not what this post is about, lol, but our friendship is pretty special and I am grateful to have them in my life!
Every year we usually do a white elephant for our annual Christmas get together, although fun, this year we decided to get a little more personal and did a Secret Santa. We did it through Elfster.com (who ever invented that website is a genius!) and we all did our own wishlist.
Curious as to what I added to mine? lol
The Spy by Paulo Coelho, his newest book that hit stores late November
Candles! I love Candles!! Especially the soft scents
Name Necklace (which I got thank you to Jennifer!)
Frida Kahlo tapestry (which I got thank you to my Secret Santa!!!)
Make up brushes (which I got thank you to my Secret Santa!!!)
Laura Mercier translucent powder
I have hosted the Xmas get together at my home for the past 3 years, so we decided to do it at my house again. It’s always a potluck and we all bring tons of delicious food, yes, we can eat. A lot. Last year we ordered Stone Fire, however, this year I wanted to have Pozole and offered to cook a huge pot for us and have that be the main dish. The rest of the girls were in charge of deserts and cocktails! Yum! Shout out to my mom for making the pozole while I was locked in my room trying to finish an exam I had to complete online!
Anyway, here is a video of the annual get together and gift exchange! Enjoy!
And here are some photos of the night!
