Surprise! We’re in North Carolina : )
Kanz and I came home for the night to celebrate a belated Christmas with my family. We’re staying at Larbs and Matt’s urban loft in Durham, but we stopped through my parents’ house to say hi to Lillis Billis and use the facilities. We also had a snack of cheese and crackers!
At the loft we got started on more apps and a few drinks – including Matt’s latest homebrew transported in a growler. [Also got to pay a visit to Sarah!!]
Larbs and Dad worked on a great dinner
My dad’s famous London Broil
Grilled Great Harvest bread
And delicious whipped sweet potatoes!
Plus a spicy syrah
After dinner we exchanged gifts. Mom got me a Davidson plate!
I gave her a Buzz necklace (her nickname)
We got dad a beer tumbler of his favorite flavor (which he says he can no longer get). Thankfully he also appreciates fine craft beers!
Matt trying on Matt’s bowtie!
Love this bottle of wine we got too!
Matt’s birthday is next week, so Larbs surprised him with a cake!
29 years young!
It was an awesome carrot cake from Whole Foods
Plus we had some leftover Christmas goodies
Dad also insisted we finish the Christmas eggnog – it’s now gone!
Full of sugar, gifts and family time, I’m ready for bed!
