Last Week

Christmas happened! To be honest, I was rather looking forward to it! Could you tell? I think I only wrote Christmas related posts this month. Not sorry though. It’s only one week until 2016, so I’ll probably go into wrap-ups and new-year’s resolution mode. But until then, let’s take a peek at the last three weeks.

Last week we put up our first Christmas tree ever!

This year we had our first Christmas tree! I absolutely love it! The lights, the baubles, the smell, it’s all awesome. I had a lot of fun shopping for and making our Christmas decorations. It was also officially the first of our 12 Dates in December.

Last week the cats started chilling on the central heaters as if it's freezing outside Last week the cats started chilling on the central heaters as if it's freezing outside

Somehow our cats just realised they can chill on the radiators. We’ve lived here for the past five years and they only found out this year. Loki and Schrödinger are acting like it’s freezing outside. Which it isn’t, it feels more like spring.

Last week I started wrapping my Chrismtas and New-Year's presentsLast week I started wrapping my Chrismtas and New-Year's presents

I made some extra effort wrapping our Christmas presents. You’d think putting some greenery on them is a good idea, but I’ve already noticed putting it on there three weeks before giving them isn’t. Needles everywhere + I’ll be needing new twigs.

On of the other Dates in December we did was Christmas shopping in Cologne! We woke up early, visited a lot of Christmas markets, did some shopping (at Muji!), found the perfect tree-topper and topped of the day with frietkot fries. In short: a perfect day.

Last week I made some copper geometric photo holders Last week we made an awesome breakfast witch eggs, bacon, French toast, American pancakes and fresh orange juice

As I said, I was on a Christmas inspired roll this month. I also put up a DIY for copper geometric photo holders. I still love them a lot! We did another one of our 12 Dates in December: an abundant breakfast! We made American pancakes, pressed fresh orange juice, baked bacon and egg and made some French toast. It was way too much, but it was also completely awesome! We ate the leftover the next couple of days, which, imo, made this even a better idea.

What have you been up to the past couple of weeks? Did you get any presents for Christmas? (I am very curious! We don’t give gifts until New Years Day, so I want to know what everybody else got)

    Zo’n mooie pakjes! Bij ons zijn het pakjes op kerstavond en er waren heel leuke dingen bij: ik kreeg kruiden en thee van Pit&Pit en leuke ovenwanten met poezen op. Mijn man kreeg een grote zak bloem om brood te bakken. Klinkt misschien grappig, maar wij houden van praktische cadeaus 🙂
