mr p and i stayed in jersey city this christmas. after several FaceTime sessions with each of our families yesterday, we certainly felt like we missed out on family christmas cheer. but it's not too often that we truly get a day to ourselves to do nothing and relax, so we did just that. we never got out of our pj's, ate delicious food, watched some christmas classics, and enjoyed our time with each other.
(why yes, that IS a fireplace on our television…)
we also decided to do our december date night at newport skates and orale mexican kitchen on christmas eve. it was certainly chilly, but it was fun to walk around our neighborhood on the rather quiet night, seeing all the christmas decorations… so we made a little video to remember our first (and maybe last…) christmas spent in jersey city…
