That basically says it. I’m behind. The holidays are fast approaching and have taken over my life. Gift buying, gift wrapping, holiday functions, school functions have all taken over over. I haven’t blogged in forever! Enough whining, let’s get caught up!
Sunday night was our club’s Holiday Party. My husband was out of town so I went solo. No worries though, I had plenty of good friends to hang with.
I always enjoy the buffet dinner at this event.
Prime rib, veggies, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy.
Don’t forget dessert! I didn’t!
A bit of everything: German chocolate cake, pumpkin pie, bread pudding, apple pie and pecan pie (the best one!).
Monday morning’s breakfast was Trader Joe’s Greek vanilla yogurt, Coconut-Sour Cherry Granola, strawberries and blackberries.
I took the kids to school and drove to Los Angeles to visit with my dad. My mom and I ran some errands at Nordstrom and picked up lunch to bring home. I had the tuna and avocado sandwich with a side salad.
My brother and his wife came over for dinner and they picked up El Pollo Loco.
My standard fare: 2 piece chicken, cole slaw and tortillas.
My brother and I really like sauces and condiments. A lot.
I think there were only 2 or 3 containers not consumed. Yeah, we have issues.
Tuesday morning’s breakfast was toast with butter and pineapple.
I drove back to San Diego, got my hair done and met Lisa for lunch at Wahoo’s.
Two fabulous fish tacos.
For dinner, I made pizza and salad. A family favorite.
Wednesday’s breakfast was a piece of Pumpkin Bread. I didn’t want to eat a ton because I had a tea to attend later in the morning.
Lisa and I attended The Country Friend’s Holiday Tea. Country Friends is a charity group that we belong too. They choose a different charity each year and we attend the holiday tea. It is always for a great cause and I enjoy the little tea sandwiches too. :)
Yes I went back for seconds. Duh.
After the tea, we did some massive errand running. I came home to unload my car and then picked up the kids from school. We had an event there for my daughter in about an hour so we went to an early dinner at Souplantation.
Thursday’s breakfast was Trader Joe’s Greek vanilla yogurt, the last of the Coconut-Sour Cherry Granola and mixed berries. I need to make more granola! If only I had the time!
I went to a doctor appointment, then Rubio’s for lunch. I had a lobster burrito.
It was just ok. I like Wahoo’s so much better.
After lunch, it was more errand running and then picked up the kids from school, changed quickly and went to our club’s Ladies Night. The theme was flower arrangement.
At first, I was like “Huh?” I really don’t care to ever arrange flowers. I’m not creative at all. I really just came for the wine and food. Let’s be real.
But…I actually enjoyed myself and had a great time completing my arrangement!
Not too shabby, eh?
Friday morning’s breakfast was an egg beater sandwich on an English muffin with Swiss cheese.
I took the kids to school and then Lisa took me to my doctor appointment for my foot. Guess what!?!
I’m 85% healed and don’t need to wear the boot anymore! Hurray for matching shoes!!
Lisa and I went to celebrate at Wahoo’s for lunch.
It happened to be the manager’s birthday and everyone sang to him. Since we are regulars (aka Wahoo’s celebrities), they were nice enough to give us some cake!
Birthday cake! mmmm!
After lunch, I wrapped gifts and picked up the kids from school.
Last night was my husband’s company’s holiday party. I will share pictures from that soon. Right now I’m at the airport getting ready for our flight to Las Vegas! It’s fight night tonight…..Pacquiao vs Marquez. We are going with Alicia and Joe…..I can’t wait!
Are you feeling behind this holiday season?
