Christmas in the UP

Despite the lack of blogging I have in fact been home for the last several weeks. Whoops! So let’s start with a vacation recap. Matt and I drove the 9 hours to my uncles house. Did you all know that 9 hours in the car with your man is WORK. Shoot. But we didn’t kill each other so that began a fun and adventure filled vacation. We celebrated our 3 year anniversary when we arrived with some drinks and national TV specials. Nothing exciting but being together was what was most important.

The next day my Dad skied around my uncles house, yes.. skied. We ran a few errands and went to my Grandma’s apartment. We feasted on duck (1st time!), and brussel sprouts (another 1st!), and a bunch of other treats.. and while I wasn’t a fan of the duck I loved the brussel sprouts. I even made some for dinner tonight. The hollandaise sauce did make the spouts a little more delicious, but they were still good.








I wish my food photos were a little better but being a dim lit room I was inexperienced. I will certainly be back with more stories of our time up North!
