N Her Shoes 2008 Recap

Today I have been cleaning and enjoying my last Saturday of vacation. We went to bed at almost 2am last night , we watched Saving Private Ryan and put away Christmas:( I woke up late and decided to take a day off of the gym, we are going to a dog park later where I am sure I will get plenty of exercise. I decided to make some whole wheat pumpkin and cranberry French toast.

The Combo:

  • 2 pieces of whole wheat bread
  • 1 egg and 1 egg white
  • 2 tablespoons pumpkin puree
  • a little pumpkin spice
  • and a half a handful of dried cranberries
  • topped with cranberry apple butter, agave nectar, and powdered sugar

After breakfast I got right to cleaning, bathroom, kitchen, living room, and dining room while watching Spanglish. I then decided to make a soup and salad type of lunch. I bought this soup at TJ’s Yesterday, Sweet Potato Bisque. Not as good as I was anticipated but with pita chips it did ok.

I am now watching Elizabeth Town, Funny and Cute movie! The clouds are making it feel so gloomy, but I am hoping they will blow over for our doggy birthday party. We plan on going out to dinner with some friends tonight, I miss making dinner at home. We will get back to eating more home cooked meals starting next week. I did make quite a healthful and cheap meal last night.

Great 2008 recap! Looks like you had a great year - and so many fun trips! Hears to 2009!

Christina said...

Love the photo retrospective. I majorly fell of the photo-taking wagon last year and only have pictures of a few things from all of '08! That can be another goal for me this new year, to take my camera with me everywhere and actually remember to use it! I love peeking at your memories.

And, yes, we should totally have a Wii tournament in April - if you can squeeze it in between seeing Boston and, you know, RUNNING A MARATHON!

i love your recap - amazing year!

I love the photo recap. That's a great idea. Kind of makes me want to do it but I don't have nearly as much stuff to recap as you do. Maybe this coming year! But it looks like you had a great year!

Great French toast and an even more amazing recap of your past year! You've definitely had a good one, and I'm sure there is nothing but excitement in store for you this year as well :o)

Denise said...
