Holiday Happenings

I have yet to mention the holidays here. It's not that I am not a fan or don't celebrate... I actually really like this time of year but have been busy catching up on everything to mention it here.


I decorated "The Ukrainian"'s place with what I will call HOLIDAY decorations. While I celebrate commerialized Christmas, he is more of a Hanukkah guy. ;)

Above: See? HOLIDAY wreath. :)

Above: Yes, I know I didn't do so great with the mantle. Need to buy more decorations when they go on sale after the holiday!

Above: Also, when it comes to holiday happenings, we went to LA Live because I had tickets to a game at the Staples Center (see background behind me).

Above: We had dinner at Wolfgang Puck. One of our first dinners together was at a Wolfgang Puck, although this one had better food... See "The Ukrainian"'s meatloaf with onions above.

Above: And my veggie pizza with fresh basil and Parmesan cheese. Top left corner -- my dairy pills. This was one of the few pizzas from which I did not savor the crust. Overall, the crust was thin and the toppings sparse. Oh well.

Above: We were in a suite. SWEET (get it?)! My company gave out free tickets, and me being a good girlfriend, endured the night knowing that her boyfriend likes hockey or just any sports opportunity.

My friend from high school came along with her guy... I had not seen her in 7 years! "The Ukrainian" enjoyed this, and I enjoyed rooting for our home team. Go Los Angeles Kings! Yes, I actually had a GREAT time! Also, yay for dessert carts and carrot cakes (it wasn't the greatest cake, though)!

Finally, over these holidays, my dad brought in this little addition. Yes, we already have a cat, and I also already have two canine nephews... I'm sure the animals will outnumber the humans soon enough!


  1. Awww, what a cute puppy!

    Looks like everything is very festive in your holiday sphere!

  2. Ugh....that puppy is melting my heart!!!!!!

    I love this time of year!!!
