It's Been Forever!




Hi everyone. I'd like to say this post is about something specific...but it's really not! I have been away from blogging for a few weeks. Things are crazy. The auction went well...earned 1000.00 plus for CVSA. Hooray...and thanks to any of you who bid. I've been trying to get the house in order, Christmas shopping done, pull out my holiday recipes, etc...I have taken tomorrow off from work so that I can try to get my act together.

So I've got some random topics to talk about:

What do your kids want for Christmas?


My daughter: Everything Pottery Barn Teen with Peace Signs(she's 6), American Girl everything....

My son: Wii games, Nerf stuff, (more) sneakers (he's 11)

What do you want for Christmas?


I'd love a desk for my bedroom, a day with just my husband...or even a WHOLE weekend, a manicure and pedicure, anything my husband picks...he's a good picker (picked me after all!)

Fav holiday recipes?

I make chocolate dipped pretzels by the boatload. Eight cookie sheets at a time. Super easy, gorgeous, everyone loves them!

i also make:

nonpareils
Baker's Death by Chocolate cookies
Peanut Blossoms
Granola(excellent gift)
White fruit cake
cheesecake

apps:

bacon puffs
barbecued cocktail meatballs
sausage biscuit balls
taco salad
favas (Portuguese style)
Hot cheese puffs

want to make: Panforte

Christmas dinner will be: prime rib and baked stuffed shrimp (yum)

It is making my mouth water just talking about all of this! But I am 14 pounds down, and I will try to be cautious this holiday season...but sample everything. My husband and I are still loyally doing Walk Away the Pounds, 4 miles, every night!

  2. Are there certain Walk Away the Pounds DVDs that you would recommend? I read through some of the reviews on Amazon after your other post where you mentioned Leslie Sansone. She has so many DVDs; it is a tad overwhelming!

  5. I don't have any children, but I want clothes for Christmas, and a surprise party for my birthday (which, unfourtunetly falls five days after Christmas). I'm learning to live with it, though! All my friends know how fierce I get when they even mention combining the two. I'm not any good at sharing!
