Happy Holidays!

So it’s the holiday season! Again. I went out to Arizona for a much needed vacay with mi padre. It was nice to be in AZ and have a change in scenery. I simply hate staying in one place too long! Those of you who know me know how very true this is! It is FINALLY snowing in Utah! We got our first bit of good snow a few weeks ago and it was splendid. I am definitely enjoying the cool weather; it’s really not that cold out so I don’t mind at allllll.

Gosh, it’s been a minute since I have posted. yikes.

I have been busy with work and also babysitting and also Netflix. Lot’s of Netflix.

I moved out of my old apartment and into my own little place! I love it so. Still figuring out what to do with the decor; trying out the whole "minimalist style" right now i.e. I don't have any real decor. Hah! Working on it slowly; I'm one of those people who LOVES to mix and match patters.                                            
In the past years I have celebrated Hanukkah; I didn't even get a chance to REALLY do that either, besides singing some songs and following a ton of trendy Jewish mommy blogs on Instagram. Mainly because there is a SUPREME lack of Jewish roots here (whereas in MN we have quite a community and it is easier to find Hanukkah stuffs). I did promise my boss Hanukkah cookies though haha (he is Jewish!). 

-I spent time this year contemplating the year, the Savior, and all he has done for me. 
-I wished all of my friends a Merry Christmas so I wouldn't be deemed a "Scrooge" since I didn't really celebrate Christmas that much.
-I went and saw the Temple lights (both in SLC and in Mesa)

Mesa Temple Navity.

I had the BEST Chinese food out west at Lin's Buffet in Phoenix on Christmas Day. It was SO GOOD (you should try it folks. Chinese on Christmas isn't just for Jews! It's amaaaazing and actually super fun!); The place was huge but packed and lines were out the door.


I have a 2 small plate MAX;
 him not so much.


I had a wonderful time.
Maybe next year, CRUISE on Christmas!!!


Until next time,

Natalie 
Happy Holidays ya filthy animals!
