happy holidays!


so this weekend was actually pretty entertaining... in both a good and bad way.
it included about 3 trips to costco- and if you've ever seen costco around the holidays, you'd know that right there is enough "entertainment" for a weekend
getting photos for christmas cards- don't even ask...
3-4 grocery store trips- yes, on TOP of the costco runs
lots of prepping for sunday dinner- our first time having the whole fam over and hosting at our new place!
and an ugly sweater party that you'd be seriously sad you weren't invited to. because it was that awesome.
so with all that being said... 
the party was definitely the highlight. and i may or may have not won the ugly sweater contest. 
(alright, i won't be so humble, i definitely did!) 
all the costco runs ended up being worth it.
sunday dinner was a success
and our christmas cards turned out pretty good, all things considering.

here are a few photos from the ugly sweater party.
i decided an ugly sweater wasn't enough and may have gone a little overboard.
and below is hubs' killer white elephant gift that he ended up with. it was kind of a hot item.

happy holidays from the stewarts!
