I know I'm super duper late, but merry Christmas, everyone! I hope you all had a lovely holiday with family and friends. I know I did! How did you spend the twenty-fifth?
I really can't believe that I was in Charleston, SC just two weeks ago. Time is flying!
Before we left Charleston, my parents and I visited Patriot's Point, where we toured the USS Yorktown battleship and the USS Clamagore, a retired naval submarine. It was really cool to walk around and see what a battle ship looks like from the inside!
After Patriot's Point, we hit the road again: this time for home (New Jersey). A few days after we got home my dad and I took a trip to a local farm to cut down a Christmas tree. We always get a blue spruce, because my mom thinks they smell the best! We picked out the perfect tree and cut it down ourselves, which was super fun.
On the twenty-first I celebrated my friend Marie's twenty-first birthday with a few other friends. We went to City Tap House in Philadelphia to celebrate, which was a total blast!
Over the past few weeks, my mom and I have done a ton of baking! There are way too many cookies in our house right now. I also made gum drops (pictured below) to give my dad for Christmas. I used this Bakerella recipe, and they turned out wonderfully!
I've been non-stop packing these past few days! I can't believe I'll be in London is less than a week; eeek!! Speaking of which, any packing suggestions? Hopefully I'll be able to sneak in another post about my Christmas adventures before I leave!
