Christmas is the time of year my brother and I really get together. We talk and talk and talk. This year he spent nearly three days with me. We ambushed my dad's family, enjoyed a very laid back but emotional dinner with them, then headed back to meet an old friend of the DH and I for present swapping. We all four ended up with me behind the wheel of my bro's car and I drove us to Waffle House, because hashbrowns and empty streets. I then drove us around until about 3 am while we listened to music. Driving experience!

The next night we saw Les Miserables with my dad and his girlfriend. Which was absolutely excellent. I have never seen the play/musical or read the book, so the story was new to me. I cried anyway.

My brother and I wound up back at my place and we watched tv and shared youtube videos and music and stories.

Intending to go back to his mom's house, he woke up at 8, had a cup of tea, and laid back down. We all woke up at 2:30 this afternoon and decided instead to go watch the Hobbit. Which was AMAZING and perfect. The only downside - the reminder that I won't get to see more Star Trek Into Darkness until MAY.

My big brother! Seriously he's so tall!
Now the DH and I plan to spend the rest of winter break watching Game of the Year videos on Giant Bomb (game review site), playing Lego Harry Potter (years 5-7) and deciding what to do for my birthday. I'm thinking go out and visit my brother in his town and meet with his tattoo artist! But I haven't decided yet.

Hopefully I'll be back to regular posting and commenting by tomorrow. I just needed to drop everything for a couple of days and enjoy the holidays.

  9. Wow, what a great holiday! You are indeed a star : > and your big brother is tall and handsome too. Such a gorgeous necklace from your Mom. xoxoxoxo

  10. Great holiday, charming report. Is your brother 7 feet tall? Or are you a hobbit?

  11. Sounds like you had a wonderful Christmas Megan!!! LOVE you in your star sweater!!

  12. I've been sort of doing the same, enjoying my break and staying away from the computer a bit. Catching up a bit right now but planning to walk away soon.

    Your brother is really tall! I am so glad you had some nice time together! And I am hopefully seeing Les Mis this weekend. I've seen the stage version so I can't wait!

  13. Ah Megan, good for you for being having a lovely holiday. You know how much I love stars, so your outfit is much loved by me. And what a wonderful gift from your Mother. That is something you will treasure forever.

  14. Ooooh, I'm intrigued. What are you considering for your tattoo? One of your own designs?

  15. I love your outfit and that Tiffany necklace is so fantastic, lucky girl!

  16. Happy Holidays Meagan! Happy to hear that you had a lovely time and your 'star outfit' is glorious.

  17. Oh I love your sweater. Want. What a gorgeous necklace too, I like thicker chains - I'd always picked more delicate ones out (thinking, little person, little chain) but chunky ones look better on me. Your holiday plans (o 'un'plans) sound fun, and a good way to unwind...

  18. I may have told you this before but that sweater is my favourite piece in your wardrobe. Never get rid of it!

    So good that you've reconnected with the other half of your family. I'm sure they were overjoyed at your visit.

    How tall are you? I think of you as above average height so you're brother looks giant to me! =)

  19. It sounds like you had a Family Christmas this year. =) Great.

    I love this outfit between your boots, your sweater & your hat!!


Thanks for reading. Got something to say? I'd love to hear it!
