Roommate Christmas

We celebrate an extra holiday at our adorable little house.

It is Roommate Christmas.

It's rough celebrating two Christmases in less than four days, but we are willing to make the sacrifice. :)

This year we opted to change things up a bit. We decided to head to the big city and stay overnight as part of our celebration.

It took a little bit extra work, like relocating Christmas to another town ... in a laundry basket.

But we thought it looked perfect when all was said and done.

We also loved our view out our hotel window.

After setting up Christmas in the hotel room, we headed to the lights at Temple Square.

We followed Temple Square up with dinner at The Garden, which overlooked the temple. We filled our bellies with two orders of fried pickles. :)

We then walked back to our home for the night, and got a sneak peak of our little tree on our eighth floor room.

Yup. That is our tree!

Once inside we hot-tubbed it up for a bit. Returned to our room, made hot chocolate ... and then it was gift time!

And staying true to last year's tradition, we had to wear every article of clothing we opened. :)

Pretend these aren't blurry. Thanks.

And, did I mention? Our matching "Ho, ho, ho!" pajamas?

We then turned on some "The Santa Clause" and went to bed. 

The following day we headed to City Creak and The Cheesecake Factory.

Throw in some serious shopping. Second lunch at In-N-Out.

And an Aggie basketball game upon returning to Logan.

Oh, Roommate Christmas! You are too good to us!

P.S. At the basketball game tonight we were playing the Southern Illinois Salukis. I personally had no idea what a saluki was, so I looked it up. It's a weird looking dog with wispy hair.

 I was intrigued to see how Southern Illinois represented this with their mascot.

Sooo, I looked it up.

And laughed. 

Until I cried.

This guy is supposed to hug kids? I am an adult and want to run away from him crying.

That's all. :)

Happy weekend people!
