I hope everyone had a Christmas weekend as amazing as the one I had (lol, kidding)
but really, I'm usually such a Scrooge when it comes to Christmas - what, with all the planning, prepping, shopping, stressing, etc. etc. I've never thoroughly enjoyed my Christmases in the past couple years, to be quite honest. thankfully, the 2010 (which is possibly one of the worst years I've ever lived!) Christmas celebration at home with my family was one of the best yet.
loved what Santa was able to pull off this year. from these Missoni rainboots to Beverly Hills, 90210 season 3 aka the best season on DVD, I really can't complain.
|my first pair of rainboots. aren't I lucky :p|
|this is me attempting to pack for Austin, TX...in mah rainboots y'all!|
|my dear cousin got me this amazing wallet which I will probably use until the rest of my life.|
my mom and I saw San Francisco Ballet's "The Nutcracker." it's U.S. premiere was done by SFB in 1944 so it's been such a tradition I'm glad I was able to finally see it.
couldn't take pics inside but the War Memorial theatre is gorgeous, as are all venues in SF. Nutcracker is so familiar to me, I've watched way too many productions of it in my life and SFB's was nothing spectacular, though the soloists were really good. I was also really impressed by the student dancers, being that they're probably all under 12 yrs old and can dance in sync. love seeing young talent. however, the entire time I kept thinking to myself...I wonder how many of these dancers struggle to achieve perfection like in Black Swan...haha
I'm leaving for Austin in the morning so until I return to foggy San Fran....later days!
