Pictures of our Holiday will be posted following this one.

Christmas in the south was:

an assortment of the best foods I've ever eaten (pistachio cake, um yum. key lime pie, barbecue...which in the south means pulled pork (right?). So I am a HUGE fan of barbecue, which should not be mistaken for a cook out.. which means grilling hot dogs and hamburgers...yuck). Oh and I can't forget about the rice and hash. And my new favorite, collared greens.

I made sure to eat lots of collared greens, as they are a representation of $$$$ bills.

And we could use all the money we could get.

Now back to the description of Christmas:

So, Loud.
Fireworks and Roman Candle fights. (well I just watched).
Football, football, and more football. I've had a lot of people ask me whether or not I like football (maybe because Devin likes it so much?) here's my answer. It depends on the day and who's playing/team rank. So, if Morgan State was playing Duke on a Saturday night, chances are I won't be interested.

Dancing- Devin and I went to this New Years Eve dance at the Stake Center. And we were probably two of like twenty in attendance. It was sorta lame, but the music was good and I got to slow dance with Devin which always makes me SMILE :)

And lastly, our Holiday was pretty loud.

But I loved almost every minute of my time spent down South.
(P.S. I told Devin last night that I miss his house and having so many people around at once). It's true.

Now it's back to the slow and painful adjustment to reality.

At least I have the day off tomorrow- and still getting paid for it. score!

Oh yea, and Devin and I spent one day in Charleston. Fun fact (As Ted Mosby would say) Did you know Charleston is nick-named the Holy City. Why? Well because there are about 100 churches in the peninsula alone.

Pretty cool.

Hillary out.

  1. I can totally understand the loud thing. When you are part of a family as big as ours (and the Christmas Eve Party was nothing! compared to what it usually is) then things do tend to get very loud. But the wonderful thing is that you get to be with so much family and friends and OF COURSE good food.

    I got Jake to admit that the South has the best food he's ever eaten!! Score! But I wanted to comment because it was SOOOO good seeing you at the party. I was so happy to be home and see the family since we live so far away and don't come home that much.

    I hope everything is going great for you guys and i'm so glad I got to see you! Hopefully it won't be so long before it happens again :)
