What a weekend.
Thursday night was the office Holiday party at Panache in the Golden Triangle. The company rented out the whole restaurant and we had apps and cocktails. It was a lot of fun to be able to mingle and meet everyone's significant others.
Friday night we went to Shiro, a Japanese habichi steakhouse, with Tal and Geoff. The place had amazing fried rice. I went with Chicken Teriyaki and Ben had Filet Mignon - both were excellent choices. Afterwards Tal and Geoff came back to our place to hang for a bit.
Since we are spending Christmas with our respective families, Saturday night we made a special steak "Christmas dinner." Then this morning we woke up early and opened the presents under the Christmas tree. Both of our parents were nice enough to mail us some presents to have under our Christmas tree. Mrs. B got us a pasta maker and a bunch of Le Creuset cast iron cookware. My mom got us some fancy tea cups, lots of tea and an indoor golf putting range that spits the ball back out at you.
I'm working on my computer, which is holding on by a thread and not letting me upload pictures to the blog (its barely registering all the letters that I type....). Hopefully pictures can be put up later.
