Christmas Cupcakes, Magic, and Sand Dunes

How was everyone's Christmas?
Mine was simply magical, I had an amazing
time with BK and his family, 
began an addiction to cupcakes,
and ate my heart out.
I'm pretty sure (actually I know) that I gained
five pounds from all of the fabulous food I ate. Oops.
To celebrate the food fest and love, I'm going
to bombard you with pictures...
You'll be noticing a lot of Photoshop techniques,
I had a little bit of fun yesterday on Christmas while
BK and I relaxed. Above are two amazing cupcakes
that we ate - cheesecake and strawberry with vanilla.
Aaaaammmmaaaazzzziiiinnnggg! 
This is my first official cupcake that I ate
from an actual cupcake shop. It was super good
but BK had to finish it off because I didn't know
the yummy frosting had cream cheese in it -
oops, I'm a lactard (aka allergic to dairy).
Isn't the tree decoration pretty?!
On Christmas Eve BK and I went and got each other
last minute gifts, this is a photo I snapped at
the shopping mall that we were at. 

Now for some pictures of 
presents and Christmas decor...
My mom got BK and I fun gift cards and she got
me a Juicy Couture stocking, score!
 My favorite gift from BK?
These fun and fuzzy polka dot pajamas.
They feel like a super soft bathrobe, love it!
Last year I got him pj bottoms too, so naturally
I made him take a picture of the pj pants together. ;)
He also got me some flip flops and more chocolate. Yum.
I only had room in my suitcase for a tiny tree 
that I bought, hence the small Christmas tree.
My real tree is in storage 
but I forgot my storage key - oops!  
This was our Christmas set up.
Christmas Eve church service outfits...

Christmas day I begged BK to take me to the ocean.
He did, and I got out of the car and ran to some
far away sand dunes where I had my moments
of bliss looking at the ocean and climbing the dunes.
Looooved my ocean dreaming.
 Behold two pics combined, on top
is a picture of me on the actual sand dune,
on bottom is a picture of the sand dune.
So. Much. Fun.
And now for our Christmas dinner...
where we braved the rain in Beverly Hills...
Italian food at E baldi was SO good.
Now I am officially hungry. Again.

My best memories of Christmas?
*Reconnecting with BK's family again. I enjoy spending time with them so much. They are easy to talk to, warm, friendly, and so joyful. 
*My quick stop at the beach. I didn't expect a sand dune and it was so much fun climbing it and gazing at the ocean. 
*Celebrating my Lord's birth. I went through a lot this year and He has been so faithful, enduring, loving, and will never abandon me. I'm forever thankful. 
*Spending time with BK. I love snuggling with him, having great convos, watching movies, driving in the car, having fantastic meals, and the list goes on and on...
*Eating, eating, and well, eating...My appetite is going strong these days. I better stay far far away from cupcakes or I am going to be in BIG trouble.

What are some of your  
memories of Christmas this year?
Please share, I would love to hear!

I'm glad you had such a good christmas, you seem to have a huge weight lifted off your shoulders and it seems amazing that you get to enjoy california on vacation (given your break) instead of being there and being in a rough spot! :)
