As the Christmas season winds down, I have a few random festive photos left to share. Since almost none of them have anything in common other than Christmas, I decided to compile them here.
The National Christmas Tree
For the past two years, my friend Andrew (Teen Take) and I have made it a tradition to go to the White House Christmas Tree and freeze our butts off. This year’s freezing got taken to a whole new level. Because I was putting off moving and it was my last night in DC, I practically forced Teen Take to go with me without even checking the weather. It was brutal. Between the freezing temperatures and the harsh winds, we were both miserable before we had made it off campus. It was so miserable that we were the only ones at the tree, which is usually quite crowded! We managed to take a selfie, but it turned out too rough to post on the internet. Needless to say, we both ended up looking up like Rudolph thanks to our windburn!
December at Georgetown Cupcake
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: November and December are the best months for seasonal flavors at Georgetown cupcake. The highlights include Sticky Toffee Pudding (not pictured but quite possibly the best cupcake ever), Mrs. Claus Cocoa, Chocolate Peppermint and Reindeer Munch Crunch. I felt so festive eating them off my cute christmas plates!
My room looked super festive through finals, up until I had to move to a different room at the end of the semester. Taking my snowflakes down and cramming my Christmas tree into a box and shoving them both into a closet was the most grinch-esque thing I think I’ve ever done! Talk about depressing…
Christmas in Kogan
There was a Christmas tree on campus that Zac and I got some photos with, which meant we had to pick each other up.
Dominick The Donkey
While doing a photoshoot for my friend, I decided to get a picture with the absolute rudest donkey while wearing matching santa hats. While my friend got kicked by the donkey just as he made a successful break for it, I managed to catch up to him and get a cute picture. Thank God he didn’t buck out at me!
My dog is a total diva and I’ll do anything to get a cute, festive photo of her. She was such a saint standing in the snow wearing a wreath, wrapped in Christmas lights and posing on a toboggan without trying to run back inside!
Charlie Brown Christmas
I decorated a sad looking pine tree in the snow on one of my first days home out of sheer boredom. It ended up looking more sad than cute but was still a great way to entertain myself!
Snowy Deer and Turkeys
The deer in my yard, aka my pets, have finally grown out their think, winter coats and looked adorable in the snow the other day.
Last Minute Christmas Shopping
Despite the freezing rain, my Mom and I ran out two days before Christmas to do some last minute errands. The decorated gazebo at Garden City was so cute!
After exploring the exterior of some of the decorated mansions and ‘rockin’ around the tree’ on second beach with the dog, my Dad and I drove around Newport (on our way out) and checked out some of the house’s Christmas decorations! I thought this one was especially cute.
