So we are officially home from visiting our families. We had a wonderful time with our family, but glad to be home.

We first visited Shaug, Amy and baby Grey, who's not so much a baby anymore as he is growing super fast. I got to try my hand at all the baking I learned over these past few weeks. Over the 6 day break I made a Buche de Noel, Challah bread, Sourdough Bread, Chocolate Cream Pie and churros. It was great to share my new passion of baking with my family.

After visiting Amy and Shaug for a couple of days, we made our way down to Fresno to see my family. We met my sister's new fiance and spent some time all together for the first time in almost a year. Korina was able to go with my sisters to find a wedding dress for my sister. After a nice long visit, it was nice to head on home to re-establish our lives here.

Korina and I had a nice long talk last night about what exactly I want to do after class. I graduate in May and I get the million dollar question practically everyday because I work in the campus store. "What do you want to do when you graduate?" It rings in my ears for hours after I hear it escape the mouth of a curious customer. The toughest part of it all is that I have no idea what I want to do. I know that I do not want to stay in the back of the kitchen, but I am not sure where to head right after school in May. What most likely will happen is that I will work back of house in a kitchen to establish my resume. We are looking for an area where I can not only make more of a name for myself, but also be able to pay off some school loans and save up some money for relocation. If this works here in the Napa Valley, then we will definitely stay here, but if it is somewhere else, then that is where we are going. This should make for a good story...we shall see! ;)

Sorry there aren't any photos, I will add some once we get some!

The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly

This is the sight I pulled up to after work yesterday
My husband rules, but we all know that.


 And check out the totally boss treasures we found thrifting this weekend

Brace yourself.....for awesomeness!


And Justin won this prize and a Gott's gift card for his absolutely awful ugly sweater at his class Ugly Sweater Christmas Party

Here they are in all their glory...

Magical huh? Yeah my vest had bells attached to it. Justin won them over by waiting to light his up until the judging!

So yeah, things have been fun here in the Team B house.

All Kinds of Cozy

Yesterday was a dream

We headed up to cut down our own tree at Pochini Family Farm with Jenna and Adam

We got bundled up and cozy and watched our guys chop down Ferdie and Fergie (it's a long story)

They were pretty tough lookin'

Until Justin decided he wanted to do "Christmas tree yoga" (standing tree morning glory)

Later we went to dinner at Market in downtown St. Helena
It was heaven
Then Justin and I headed home for some devine chocolate cream pie he made entirely from scratch earlier that day

We cozied up and decorated our all too adorable tree and living room until I nearly passed out from excitement

Our little Moho had it's halls decked 

I wish yesterday was everyday....
