christmas in phone photos

I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas (if you celebrate the holiday :) filled with fun times with loved ones, lots of food, & of course gifts!  I was spoiled once again, got way more than i deserve - but i appreciate it all.  I was considering doing a 'Christmas haul'/'what i got for Christmas', but it would take a lot of time trying to photograph what i got & i don't want it to seem like i'm coming off as bragging.  Let me know if that's something you'd like to see.

Christmas Eve was just a relaxed day with the immediate family, including church, opening presents, and watching National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (it's a classic in our house!).  Christmas Day, we had part of my mom's side of the family over for a late lunch and conversation (and more presents).

One of my gifts from my parents was a lovely new phone.  I was between the Blackberry Bold & the HTC EVO, but ended up getting the EVO - i'm kind of glad i did!  I took some pictures on it since i got it last Wednesday, so i thought i'd share them with you all :).  I'm actually surprised by the quality of these photos!  There's two cameras on this phone, one on the back & one of the front, kind of like the iPhone 4 i suppose.  Hope you enjoy :)

 Rings i got while shopping for gifts / list of posts & videos for me to do

Presents ready to go under the tree! / gifts for two of my friends all wrapped & pretty

 Grenade by Bruno Mars <3 / oh hey Gaga! - this sticker came with the Viva Glam Gaga lipstick my sister got me :)

Pleathura of yoga DVDs my sister got me, as well as Vampire Diaries season one, & a Marie Claire subscription / trying to pick an outfit for church

 More indecision!  Ended up going with the outfit on the right, but with flats instead of the boots.

Christmas tree :) / Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex - yes, i actually asked for this game (from 2001, i might add) for Christmas!  Brings back memories haha.

 Morning bike ride / mom & dad preparing dinner for Christmas Day with the fam!

The lovely arrangement of cookies i did :D so proud haha

Finally got a Scrabble ring :) / Frank Sinatra quotation

Dairy Queen ice cream cake :)  I actually didn't eat of it (surprisingly!)

Reading for church!  Wearing Viva Glam Gaga :) / My sister & i - aren't we attractive!?

 New books!  Classy by Derek Blasberg - currently reading, so good! and How to Be An Explorer of the World by Keri Smith - totally going to take this to London & Paris with me ♥

My sister ruining my self-portrait with a plastic fork lol / Wakey, wakey!  All cosy in bed with a new pink fleece & no makeup, eep.


Quite sad Christmas is over!  Well, kinda - i still have to exchange gifts with my friends & i have another Christmas party to go to on New Year's Day.  Can't believe 2011 is SO close D:  Still have to figure out my plans, yikes.  All i know is that i want to wear some flashy makeup & party party party!

See you all soon, xoxo
