This Little Elf is READY!
Ok so twas the night before the night before Christmas and this little elf is ready for the big day!!!
Today was so much fun, busy, but fun. I headed in to town around 10am and didn’t get home until 4pm!!! I met up with my teacher friend Melissa for lunch and had a Fajita Bowl, basically a burrito without the tortilla. Then we hit up a couple stores to look for a Christmas outfit, I decided to just play around with the clothes I already have, I DONT NEED ANYMORE!!!! I also stopped by Barnes and Noble and got a new novel, Odd Mom Out, with my gift card a student gave me, and even read a little bit of it I LOVE JANE PORTER!! I know I am not a Mom, but I love her writing style, funny and witty! On the way home I stopped by the video store, and STOLE ALL THE BEST HOLIDAY MOVIES!!! Christmas Vacation, Elf, Love Actually, Fred Clause, and of course White Christmas.
When I got home I unloaded the groceries with the help of hubby, I think with all the walking around I should be able to get some points for the HBBC!!! lol… Speaking of the HBBC my total points as of today is, 89.25! After the unloading, I got right to the baking, I made more chocolate covered peanut butter filled Ritz crackers, and some Hello Dolly Bars. I wrapped them all up for the “families” tomorrow night( while watching Christmas Vacation). That's right we do two families on Christmas Eve and two on Christmas Day! We will visit my Dads family for dinner at 6pm, and then Moms family at 8pm. I will not be worrying about food so much it will just be too hard!!!!, But I will limit the alcohol. What are your Holiday Traditions, are you going to limit yourself?
I made a quick and easy dinner- not the healthiest choice but most economical. LEFTOVERS, 1 piece of bbq chicken pizza and leftover sweet potatoes fries. I also snacked a bit while baking;)
I saved the best FOR LAST!!! Check out this amazing find I found in TJ’S TODAY!!!! Can you say breakfast!
I plan on running at least 6 miles tomorrow, and do a little weights too before all the festivities begin!!!! I am currently watching Love Actually for the first time while I blog, loving it!!! II am going to be relaxing tonight, and setting some GOALS FOR RACES in 2009.Are you setting goals yet?
I have one last question does anyone else out there besides Californians eat tamales for Christmas, and if not what do you eat???? Us Californians LOVE OUR TAMALES! I will not be blogging again until Friday, When I come back I will have all the goodies ready to send off to the POTM winners, sorry it’s taken so long, a review, and CONTEST!!! Everyone have a SAFE and HAPPY HOLIDAY, MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!
