It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! 🎄 I have never been to a holiday party before until tonight. I was recently invited on yelp to attend an ugly sweater party and decided to take my super fun mom as my +1 to this @yelpseattle Elite event tonight. Boy oh, boy did we have a blast! The party was held at @xtadium in Seattle and this place was lit 🔥 with lots of Christmas decorations, holiday cocktails (free😍), a photo booth, and a DIY crafts table.
The appetizer food at Xtadium was so so good! It was so good that mom and I wanted our own plate of the popcorn shrimp. We were also even more excited that one of our favorite chefs was the one making this delicious food 😍
To make this Holiday party even more fun and exciting, there was also an ugly sweater competition and my mom was so close to winning, although the lady with the ugly elf sweater +ears got more cheers 🤷🏽♀️ #soclose
I decided to post some of the cocktails both me and my mom tried 😉 My personal favorite was the spiked frozen hot chocolate ☕️🥃 If you want to see our photo booth photo go check it out on my personal account @ciaracwilliams 📸
1. Espresso Cocktail 🍸
2. Frozen Hot Chocolate 🍫 topped with whipped cream, a gingerbread man, chocolate chip cookie, and a chocolate marshmallow
3. The Grinch (sweat & sour) topped with a peppermint marshmallow 🍸🍏

Yelp Event, Part 2: ICE CREAM!! Now that we worked up a sweat and burned a few calories, it is time to consume them back (and then some) with some fantastic ice cream! Cute little Mom and Pop soda shop ice cream parlor with delicious ice cream, homemade waffle bowls, and a freshly toasted marshmallow on top. And they were so kind to send us all home with goodie bags! We recived a coupon to come back for a free scoop, a homemade rum cake and a homemade macaron. Yum! #IceCream#SodaShop#SugarOverLoad#yelp#YelpOrlando#YelpElite lite #ItsNeatToBeElite#YelpLife#SupportLocal @west_orange_creamery @yelporlando @yelp @andiperezorl
Worried the kids will go wild over winter break?! LET THEM!! Spend a day or night at Bearizona and let them go wild in an amazing drive through wildlife park. They've got plenty of things to do and see. This time of year is extra special as you can explore their winter wonderland too. Just a short drive from Flagstaff, Bearizona is a favorite stop for locals and tourists alike.
