None of Us Get Out of it Alive…

The title of my post this morning, is from P.S. I Love You. I thought it was so true, and so inspiring. We all get to live this life with the ups and downs, and in the end none of us get out of it alive.

Yesterday ended up quite well. Not anymore productive, but nice. I made myself a nice plate of leftovers, which is one of the best things about cooking Christmas dinner.

Hubby and I then went over to the Heppinstall’s for a fun game night, which included pizza and brownies. I had two slices of pizza but no brownies. We played this present game that I have never heard of before. You basically pick a number on the dice and then pass the dice from person to person. Each person rolls and tries to get the number that was picked, for instance the number that someone picked was 1 so we were all trying to roll a 1. If you roll 1 you have to put on oven mitts and try and open this large gift, everyone else keeps rolling and when someone else rolls a 1 then they get to try and open the gift, and so on and so on. The box had boxes in it that were wrapped so just when you thought you were about to win, there would be another box to open. Finally someone got to the last box and they won $10. I think I want to start making this a family tradition. I wish I would have taken pictures, but I forgot my camera.


I woke up late this morning, 8am. I took some medicine last night because I had a runny nose all day yesterday and I think it knocked me out. I felt all groggy when I woke up which SUCKS! I went straight for the coffee and then made a Sunday morning treat for one. Hubby is still asleep. I wanted something new, and I am out of oatmeal so I made,

Whole Wheat PumpkinCran French Toast:

I mixed 1 egg and 1 egg white with a little skim milk, pumpkin spice, and 2 tablespoons of canned pumpkin. Then I dipped two pieces of whole wheat bread in to the mixture and cooked for about 3 minutes on each side. Topped with warm cranberry sauce, powdered sugar and a drizzle of Agave Nectar.

Yay! I'm glad you liked my game! You seemed like such a pro unwrapping the presents with those oven mitts on! We did all the work so that the person who unwrapped the least won the prize. But it was really fun. It was absolutely GREAT seeing you and your hubby. Good job on not eating the brownies by the way. We can't stop They will probably ALL be gone by the end of the day. Yeah, we are SO bad.

And that French Toast looks SO good. You're so creative with your food.

Hi Bobbi,

I found you through Lance's Jungle of Life. Wow, I'm impressed by your blog (and felt hungry just looking at your food pics in this post!)

Great work with your running. My goal this year is to run a half marathon, but I can't start training till my left knee heals from an old injury aggravated by too much running the last few months.

Thanks for the inspiration to work on my running!
