After a very exhausting semester, which I call Semester 1.0. I flew out Dec. 21st to Las Vegas where the median temperature has been 50+ degrees! Goodbye winter coat, hello hoodies! I immediately had to prepare for family flying in from Mexico, adjusting to a new puppy, Barnaby, at home and finishing some last minute rewrites for my History of American Higher Education course. While everyone did last minute shopping and the radio played count downs of the top 2013 songs….I forced my to work on finishing the semester so I could enjoy Christmas! Pandora kept the Christmas spirit alive and well for me.
My motto was: Ready. Set. GOOO!!!
By tradition, Mexican families celebrate Christmas Eve dinner with family and friends. There after we attend midnight mass. This year all the yummy food had most of us passed out on the couch while we pretended to watch midnight mass broadcasted from the Vatican in Rome. Here are a few pictures of the many food selections we had:
Happy New Years from Las Vegas!!
