Happy December! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend. Mine was full of all things lovely. Here’s what I’ve been up to the past few days…
Last Wednesday night I soaked cranberries in maple syrup overnight…
I also made a layered salad to take to the Thanksgiving feast.
Romaine, arugula, red onions, tomatoes, peas, red pepper, homemade dressing, cheddar cheese, bacon and chives. Here’s a link to the original recipe.
Before hitting the road on Turkey Day, I had a wake-up call at 4:20am to complete this at-home workout.
And these are why I soaked the cranberries in maple syrup overnight. On Thursday morning, I drained the cranberries while I was working out and then rolled them in sugar.
Early Saturday morning, I hit the road to go see my parents at Ocean Isle Beach. I was able to go to the parade with Haines where she was in love with the dum-dums and not a fan of the clowns. And I spy Dadom…
Two parades in one day? This was the flotilla that we watched from the end of my Pawpaw’s pier on the waterway. So cold. But so beautiful.
An impulse buy at Target. But totally worth the money. I love Christmas music!
Big Guy brought home our Christmas tree on Sunday night. Isn’t she a beaut? Clearly Christmas trees are a big deal to us – we rearranged and removed furniture.
And I’m officially in the holiday spirit. I can’t believe Christmas is only 3 weeks away (meaning only 14 work days stand between me and a two week holiday)!!!!
