Hello and… nope. I think in the new year I am going to come up with new ways to start my greeting because “hello and happy whatever” is getting boring.
I think Christmas has catapulted itself into first place for my favorite holiday. I had a wonderful few days, and I already can’t wait until this season rolls around next year – and I still have a whole week of celebrations ahead! For now, let’s look at my past few days.
Dad made dinner!
Homemade gnocchi, stuffed shells, and chicken parm hit the spot since I love Italian!
These two are the reason I believe in true love.
Mom! Somehow I missed a pic with dad.
Adam got chocolate chunk pancakes for breakfast.
I was definitely spoiled this year. I got an awesome Ninja blender (I’m about to blend all the things so be forewarned.) and funds for my yoga obsession among other great gifts. Santa is too good to me. I also got Pro Compression socks from Adam!
Italian Cappelletti soup made by my Aunt Terry was our appetizer. Her mother (who was like my third grandmother) came here from Italy, so I can say I am pseudo-Italian, right? Either way, these little dumplings are savory and out of this world.
My mom and I made these fruit kabobs. Pap loved them, so it was worth it. We sprinkled sugar-free jello powder on the pineapple.
On Saturday, we are celebrating with my mom’s best friend and her family (her daughter and son happen to be my and Adam’s ages… yes they planned that). I always love spending time with them, so I am looking forward to that. Then on Sunday, we are going to another friend of my mom’s for dinner!
I hope you have a great weekend! I’ll be back here on Sunday for some spilling.
Question of the Day:
What was the best thing you ate over the past few days? The stuffed shells are up there for me, but the cookies win out.
