A Weekend of Christmas

One of the things I love the most about Christmas is getting to spend time with lots of friends, all in a festive mood.  This past weekend was full of Christmas-y celebrations!  This meant cookies, more cookies, wine, and the HOLIDAZZLE!

Typically, the weather here is unbelievably cold.  This year, however, the last day of the Holidazzle had us in the high 30s that night.  To non-Minnesotans, this might seem cold, but it felt downright balmy here!  And so, the Holidazzle was packed.  We got there maybe 10 minutes early and there was not a single good spot to be had.  So, you'll have to pardon my pictures- I was behind the crowds.

And we finished off the night with some holiday cheer at Solera, a really yummy Spanish restaurant on Hennepin
