Holiday Celebrations Begin
I hope you’ve been having a great week so far :D. I am finally done with all of my Christmas shopping, today I just need to finish wrapping everything. I thought I would just update you on what I’ve been doing this week.
Monday night my mom made us a fantastic dinner of chicken parmesan, and instead of having it with marinara sauce and pasta, it was served with arugula and a lemon dressing (made with just fresh squeezed lemon juice, olive oil, and some pepper). It was delicious!!
And then we made some chocolate chip cookies courtesy of the Nestle Toll House recipe :D. I probably could have eaten my body weight in the cookie dough haha…man that stuff is tasty.
Last night my brother, Chris and I celebrated Christmas with my dad, his wife, and my nana…..yay for starting holiday celebrations :D.
Um, can we talk about how pale I look?? Seriously, it’s kind of sad. I so wish that I didn’t care about my skin so I could go to a tanning bed haha.
I didn’t take any pics of the food, but it was delicious! We had a mix of flanked steak, tuna, and salmon with sides of salad and baked potatoes. So tasty :). And of course I had some wine…which I may have missed my mouth while trying to drink it at one point and spilled it on my jeans and Chris’s jeans haha…oops. And my favorite picture of the night was when Chris picked up my brother hehe-
Oh and I’m so excited because I bought my gym pass the other day and the student price was only $16 for a month! A month!! A day guest pass at this gym is $10 so I’m pretty pumped that my month-long one was so cheap.
Today I’m going to head to the gym and get in a nice sweat sesh…which is much needed. I’ve been eating way too much junk food. It’s delicious and I’m not too worried about eating all of it but I am feeling a little gross so a nice, hard workout will be great!
I also need to finish wrapping presents and continue reading Violets of March. Seriously guys, you need to read this book! It has sucked me in and it is so good. Plus, then you can participate in Julie’s book club!
Anyway, sorry for the complete randomness of this post! I hope you all have a great day :D.
Have you had any Christmas celebrations yet?
Do you get incredibly pale like I do in the winter? How do you deal with it?
