Happy 2015!

As my coworker calls it, for New Years I had a Scho-down! My sister flew out to see me and Schollian is our maiden name :). She was here from Dec 31 – Jan 6, and we had lots of fun together and also hung out with lots of Schollian relatives in MD.

After work on New Years Eve (got off a bit early :-D!) I got Chelsey at the DC airport. We took the metro home, stopped at the grocery store, and made lots of delicious breakfast food – pancakes & buttermilk syrup, German pancakes & whipped cream, fruit, bacon, and quiche! And we spent the night eating and playing games :). Besides us there was Ben & his older brother, Jason; our friends Barbara&Gary Lougee; Gary’s sister, and Candice&Dave Ward – and of course their adorable toddler, Peter! Peter helped us baby proof our house 😉 but after a couple hours of exhausting all interesting things for toddlers, Ben found the magical babysitter – Curious George :D! Some of the games were very intense 😉 but lots of fun!

Thursday and Friday, Chelsey and I went out to eat (went to Rasika – an amazing Indian restaurant, and Farmers Fishers Bakers – both in DC), had fun dressing up (and Chelsey teaching me make-up), and shopped a little.

From Friday, Jan 2 – Tuesday, Jan 6 Ben went to Boston for his interviews, and Chelsey & I went up to see our Schollian grandparents & family. We had lots of fun with them (and once again ate way too much :-/)!

Chelsey and I left my Grandparents Tuesday about 5 am and headed to the airport…Unfortunately it had started to snow about 4 am and the roads and my inexperienced snow driving scared us both. Chelsey made it to the airport and I made it home but Chelsey’s flight was delayed about 5 hours :-/ and shockingly I didn’t get a snow day at work :(. Lame day for the first snow of the year.GumwoodSnow


But I took the day off anyways and took a nap before I went and got Ben at the airport at about 9 pm. And we were all safe and I was glad to see Ben again so I couldn’t complain too much :-).


Now Ben and I are trying to get back into the groove of things and I guess its time to stop eating chocolate and make some goals for the new year lol. Happy New Year everyone!

    That food looks soooo good. And, now I want to go to your grandparents again. So beautiful! You should post some pictures of their property with snow when you visit again.

    Ya lol, at the Schollian party, I thought my lasagna and Grandmom’s cabbage rolls for main dish wouldn’t be enough so I got Chelsey to make pasta, and then my aunt brought crab meatballs and rice w shrimp…plus garlic bread, salad, squash, and 3 desserts 😀 … so we ended up with enough for 3 meals 🙂 lol. Ya, hopefully we can make it up again this winter. The snow is pretty even if it isn’t fun to drive in when its fresh!
