Did you have a great holiday?

What did you get? I always love hearing people’s favorite gift :)I got the sparkly pink Kitchen Aid that I have been dreaming about.

It was a good day.

And I’ve eaten pretty much nonstop for 4 days of whatever and however much I wanted.  That means Red Velvet Cheesecake cake for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with a little protein thrown in to balance the sugar headaches. That was my Christmas gift to myself…4 days of eating with no abandon.  It was a success.

I got my husband an iPhone 4S for Christmas and he is currently in a battle against Siri. He spent half an hour asking Siri for directions to the supermarket that is 10 minutes from our house (that he’s been to no less that 4 million times). Old broad wouldn’t budge. She wasn’t gonna lead him there, no matter what.

I think she knew that he was just testing her, so she balked.  Makes sense if you ask me.

And my kids got…well, pretty much everything. So yeah, we’ve had a nice holiday.

Now, moving forward, as we have to do, we have New Years Eve to think about.

Sounds good, huh?

I found this cool stuff at the supermarket (that I eventually found without Siri’s help).

It’s Cream of Coconut in a super easy squeeze bottle.

  1. I made these and my Husband absoutley LOVED them, I loved the simplicity! I would recommend them to EVERYONE!

  2. I got the matte black (licorice) KitchenAid Pro!
    I’ll admit I already knew what it was (since I went along to pick it out and then refused to wrap it myself) I still was SUPER excited to open it. And took it out of the box in the middle of the living room amid a mountain of wrapping paper so that I could show off the awesomeness.

    And then I made Peppermint patties and gave them to my friends for Christmas – which we celebrated on New Year’s.

    And I think I might make a cake when I get home from work tonight. Because I can. Angelfood. Because it’s good for you. 🙂
