Holiday Happenings

Happy Hump Day everyone! Halfway through the week, and it’s almost Christmas! Now if that doesn’t get you excited, I don’t know what does ūüėČ

Lots of things have been going on around here lately, especially lots of Christmas-related things….

Which you KNOW includes baking ūüôā

Some goodies all packaged up!


I also made pizzelles¬†with my mom’s friend, Carm.¬† We have been making them together for the past couple years, and although I haven’t completely mastered the pizzelle iron,¬†I swear I’m¬†getting better! Maybe next year will be my year ūüėČ


Think I like the color red? I absolutely LOVE my red Kitchen Aid that I got for my birthday last year. And how cute is this Christmas spatula? Thanks Aunt Judi!


I found these hilarious throwback Christmas pictures of my sister and me¬†one day last week and could not stop laughing. I put the first one next to our Christmas card from this year, and holy¬†moley¬†it’s scary how similar they are! Same house, same tree, same color clothes! Too funny!


And I’m not sure about you, but nothing says¬†“Happy Holidays” to me like corduroy overalls and leopard print turtlenecks. Thanks, Mom. 20121219-114547.jpgSaturday was my dad’s side of the family’s Christmas party! Guess who supplied the cookies?


Me and my sister with Grandma! (I guess me and Linds¬†were both feelin’ the stripes Saturday night?)


I finally got all of my grades back for the semester.¬† Not too shabby! Was hoping for a 4.0, but hey, I’ll take an A-¬†in biochem.

20121219-115000.jpg¬†Some recent workouts…

I started my Saturday morning off with a sweat sesh on the bike!20121219-114743.jpg

Monday I did a killer shoulder workout with 30 kettlebell swings in between each set. Trying to grow these babies! 20121219-115007.jpg

On another note, my nut butter addiction is definitely not normal.

This stuff is literally crack in a jar. I may or may not have ordered 3 jars of it online¬†last week…


Normal people keep almond butter in their cup holders, right? No?20121219-114732.jpg

Of course, froyo happened this weekend. Every time I go into the shop, I pretend like I have no clue what flavor I want, just so I can sample them all, yet EVERY time I pick vanilla. Does anyone else pull this trick? Haha.


Now onto some REALLY exciting news! Last night I received this in the mail: 20121219-115031.jpg

Remember when I asked you guys to vote for my Pumpkin Spice Donut Holes in the Silk Holiday Recipe contest on Facebook? Well, I won the dessert category! I could NOT believe it! There were so many great recipes. I am so honored! The grand prize was a Kitchen Aid mixer (which they sent the giftcard for) and a year supply of Silk! Literally still in shock! Thanks to any of you that voted!

And these both describe me pretty accurately…



Haha! Have a great night everyone!
