It´s here. Finally. My favorite week of the year. Can´t even breath because I´m so excited.
Mariah Carey has become my steady companion lately and in my head a group of elves is dancing around a christmas tree. Crazy maybe?
BUT I was waiting so long for christmas to come (365 days, that is!) and now it´s finally here. Not only do I love being around my family and getting lots of presents (hrhrhr, sooo curious about my babe´s gift!) but also giving presents to others and seeing the joy on their faces. I have to admit that I overshoot the mark with my presents sometimes (sometimes meaning always), especially when it comes to my boyfriend – but I just want him to get the best gift on earth (although it gets harder and harder to find the best gift on earth 2 times a year with every birthday and christmas that comes around).
The holidays are a celebration itself in my family and we have various dinners and parties from 24th til 30th of December, and on the 31st of December a New Year´s Eve party of course!
I´m going home to Salzburg today and here is a glimpse of what I have planned for the next two weeks:
Lots, and lots, and lots of food, cookies, desserts, wine, hot wine, champagne, more wine.
We are a huge family and have a dinner on 24th, 25th, 26th, 27th of December and a really big family event on the 30th and inbetween some casual lunches to catch up with friends or other family members.
Well, hello there gym, my friend – see you in January!
(Vicky told me yesterday that one glass of Punsch or hot wine is the same as eating a roast pork calory wise – just saying.)
An amaaaazing NYE party, at a special location with very special people. I don´t want to give away too much yet, but we will update you about that very soon! Some of you may have a guess who I´m celebrating with, but let´s just say, I want to start the new year with the people that became most important to me in my new life in Vienna.
And the rest of the time? Not much leisure time left, but my whole family and my babe are passionate about all winter sports activities (imagine: lots of Lindsay Vonn´s and Marcel Hirscher´s gliding down the piste, that´s what we look like. No joke.), so we want to go skiing (me, snowboarding) a LOT, maybe go for some winter walks with our baby doggy and I really want to see the new movie “Life of Pi” that starts on 26th of December and looks amazing from what the trailer looks like! Can´t wait!
Tell me, what are your plans for the holidays?
