i almost missed my flight because i wanted to eat breakfast at my fav spot and there was a wait. thank goodness i didnt.plane.jpg planeagain.jpgi met the funniest guy on the plane. he works for the weinstein  brothers. he sat down, looked at me and said “i have turrets. so im not responsible for flying food or anything i say for the duration of the fight.” i soon realized that he was clearly joking. hes one of the most hilarious people ive ever met. brilliant too. plane2.jpg heres the front of our house. we’ve had these lights up since before i was born. its a total staple on our street, people leave us notes about how much they enjoy it. i love coming home to this.fronttree.jpg i always write silly things on the chalk board in our kitchen. no one ever notices until a few days later. then i get in trouble.gofuckyourself.jpg i woke up the next morning and made persimmon/blackberry muffins with my momma.muffins.jpgthey were incredible. i think cuz the fruit was from our garden.muffin.jpgi sat on the couch with my momma while she knit.margcap.jpg i feel asleep for a little bit and when i woke up this cap as on my lap. momcap.jpg i went to cynthia and sarahs grandparents house in the afternoon to show their fam our pictures from paris and to catch up a bit. we drank champaign and made sugar cookies. sarahpouring.jpg it took us a while to find a good frosting technique cynfrosting.jpg yummycookies.jpg this is cyn and sarahs grandfather, my boyfriend popi. i would marry him in a second if i could. hes so handsome. ive known him forever. he takes us out to dinner at ciprianis whenever hes in new york. which is such a nice treat. popi1.jpg christmas eve came and we headed to grandmas house.  the sunset on the drive was beautiful. carview.jpg my dad was antsy before dinner. he kinda gets annoyed when all his grand kids are around. too much noise. chuckchair.jpg i have 6 nieces and nephews. heres 4 of them watching the grinch who stole christmas while dinner was being prepared. kids.jpg most of them have blonde hair and blue eyes. this is sienna. she likes taking silly pictures and then looking at them on the camera. i never get to see them so i love when i do.mesienna.jpg this is max. hes a total handful.memax.jpg check out those eye balls.  max.jpg on christmas eve we do the typical italian deal. we eat cipino which is

eat a lot. chuckeating.jpg shells.jpg i gave my nephew alex a bath before we had dessert and opened presents. my grandmothers bathroom is insane.alexbath.jpg i dont know how my grandfather did it. the cologne he wore before he died is still in the same place. i always go in there to smell it, and then proceed to cry like a baby cuz i miss him. he was a wonderful human.gmabroom.jpg the pictures stopped here cuz i got wasted. i woke up early christmas morning to my parents searching for presents under the tree.xmasmorn.jpg every year my dad gets all of us a book with a nice letter inside. he did a good job this my mom gave my dad lots of pajama pants. he looked at her and said “i guess u dont want me sleeping naked anymore.” my mom and i laughed, he didnt.chuckpants.jpgthen we hoped into the car and went down the street to my sisters house for breakfast. we picked oranges to squeeze for juice.oranges.jpg my dad is a chain smoker. the only dentist i know who smokes.chuckhood.jpg she decorated her statue. she tells me this is what my body looks like.statue.jpg max was all excited he got a guitar. hes actually pretty good. i have to say i was impressed. maxguitar.jpg this is the
