Back at our house… and Future Hus and his friends are frantically packing their suitcases for their Bachelor Party Extravaganza in Key West! I hope they have fun, but I’m realllllly going to miss Future Husband (he comes back on Tuesday).
So, Christmas 2008 was very fun! Even on my proclaimed "no splurge day"… I still managed to eat like four cookies and some dessert, but I did keep the booze to a minimum. It’s really difficult for me not to snack on sweets when it’s right in my face, which is why I never have candy in the house!!
For special occasions like a holiday, it’s fine to relax on healthy eating and just ENJOY myself. I simply try to never splurge to the point of guilt.
But overall — I had a wonderful holiday and loved spending time with our families. 🙂
Future Hus and I with the dogs…
Our Christmas dinner (post-oven disaster)…
Stuffing, mashed potatoes, turkey, green bean casserole, broc and cheese, roasted potatoes… I ate about 2/3.
British people have a traditional of opening little gift boxes called "Crackers," which contained cute little toys (like a Cracker Jack toy) and paper hats.
It’s funny to look around and watch every eat with paper hats on their heads!
Some dessert… including English Christmas pudding and some apple pie. I tried the English Christmas pudding and didn’t like it, and just picked at the pie.
A black coffee and an After Eight mint.
Since I was in charge of washing the dishes, I let James lick the dirty dishes (cue the "eww" from the dog-haters!).
Good night, sleep tight!
