The night before I left my parent’s house, I FINALLY tried a slice of the Chocolate Cinnamon cake I made for Thanksgiving.

It was pretty tasty! I’ll have to make it again so I can get a better photo of it and share the recipe!

Wednesday morning’s breakfast was a fried egg & cheddar cheese sandwich on a bagel thin.

I drove back to San Diego and stopped at Jersey Mike’s for lunch. I had a mini Italian sub with salt & vinegar chips.

I kept thinking the rest of the day what a perfect lunch that was.

I ran some errands, picked the kids up at a play date and then came home. My husband was kind enough to pick up Los Primos for dinner. I shared the carne asada mini tacos with him.

I had my favorite Greek salad with a chicken kabob.

Last night my husband and I went to a new member event at our new club. I enjoyed some champagne and delicious appetizers.

Since I was meeting all new people, I really didn’t want to whip out the camera and take pictures of the food and then have to explain my blog. Sometimes that’s awkward. :)

This morning I prepped for my Stella & Dot jewelry party before taking the kids to school. When I got back, I finished preparing the food right before everyone arrived.

I think everyone got a good bit of their holiday shopping done today!

After I cleaned up, I ran to Target and then came home to get the laundry started and make a quick turkey sandwich before picking up the kids at school.

I just finished making a couple of dishes for a dinner party at a friend’s house tonight. Have a great evening!
