135.4…Holiday Parties. Check.

Time seems to be flying. Days are passing in a blink of an eye. The holidays are approaching faster than a freight train. Fortunately, I think I’m now ready for them!

Tuesday night’s dinner was an easy family favorite. Pizza and salad.

Pillsbury pizza dough, Trader Joe’s sauce, some veggies and voila. Pizza done.

Wednesday’s breakfast was Cascadian Farms granola and Trader Joe’s vanilla Greek yogurt. I was out of fruit. Oh well.

I took the kids to school and came back home to meet a repairman. Since I was stuck at home, I made a quick lunch of a turkey sandwich, tortilla chips and the rest of the Bruschetta Dip with Avocado. That stuff rocks.

That evening, a bunch of my friends met at Fashion Valley mall for dinner and a benefit at the C Wonder store. We met at California Pizza Kitchen for dinner.

We had a great time shopping for a great cause!

Thursday morning’s breakfast was an egg beater sandwich on a toasted English muffin with Swiss cheese.

I got my nails done and met the girls for lunch at Wahoo’s.

Same place, same tacos.

Recently a friend won a private shopping event for a few friends at TRE Boutique and she invited me. We enjoyed some wine, cheese and a whole lot of shopping. We worked up an appetite so we walked over to The Counter for dinner. I had never been and was excited to try it. It’s a burger place where you build your own burger by checking off items that you want from the menu.

I started with onion strings…..

And moved onto a delicious burger with horseradish cheddar cheese, tomatoes, red onion, lettuce and Russian dressing.

It was good but not as good as our club’s burger night. :)

After last night’s event ended so did all my holiday parties for the month. As much as I enjoy all the festivities, I ready to relax and enjoy the rest of the holiday season with my family. We are going to spend Christmas with my parents and then take a family cruise to the Caribbean. I cannot wait to put my feet up and do nothing!

I was uninspired for breakfast this morning.

December 2012 279

English muffin with butter and honey. Oh well. It tasted good, at least.

I took the kids to school and came home to get some packing and laundry done. Guess what I had for lunch today?

Big surprise, huh?

What are your plans for the holidays?


  1. I know I've probably told you this before, but in my next life, I'd like to have yours, okay?!

    Have fun at your parents, hope your Dad is feeling better.

    I am going to my Mom's today to celebrate Christmas with my side of the family - she's going to my brothers house in Texas this year. Then my husbands family is coming over on Christmas day.

  2. I'm officially starving after seeing all of this yumminess. Happy Holidays.
