138.2…Packing On The Holiday LBs!

I was wondering when all these fabulous holiday eats would catch up with the scale. Ah ha! Here the are!

Christmas Eve dinner at my parent’s house rocked. My sister in law made dinner and it was amazing.

Salad….I ate two full bowls.

My favorite sauce ever. Ever.

After dinner, I went out to BJ’s with my brother and sister in law to grab a drink with some of their friends.

We started Christmas morning in the most excellent way.

Prime rib and baked potatoes! 

Then it was time to pack up and head back to San Diego. I can’t believe how fast the holiday went!

Yesterday morning’s breakfast was an egg beater sandwich on a toasted English muffin with cheese and avocado. I’m loving the addition of avocado to this sandwich!

I took the kids to get hair cuts and then met my husband at Olive Garden for lunch. I ordered the soup and salad combo.

The soup’s just ok. I really order it just for the salad.

I had a free meal for my birthday at Benihana so that’s where we went for dinner. I hadn’t be in SO long!

I ordered the Hibachi Steak and Shrimp with fried rice.

I forgot how much I loved Benihana! And a free meal doesn’t hurt either! I wasn’t all bad…I skipped the free ice cream. :)

This morning I got to try out a funny little pan I got for Christmas.

It makes the perfect size egg for my egg sandwiches!

What was the best gift you received for Christmas? 


  1. Love the egg pan! I got a bike, first one I've had in many man years. can't wait until the snow melts and I can use it.

  2. I have a pan that is similar (minus the egg handle)...it is perfect for eggs. I got a Kindle Fire that I've been wanting for over a year...so very happy!

  3. I have that same pan!!! One more thing we both have, huh?! And those Pillsbury cinnamon rolls are the bomb.com! Loved them since I was a kid! My kids love them, too, now! Glad you had a nice time with your family!
