#1. Christmas is in FIVE, yes, five days. I’m sure you’re well aware, but I felt the need to announce it.
#2. I’m NOT a fan of this crackle nail polish…
I tried it out, in hopes of a festive, Christmasy manicure, but unfortunately, the result was more of a graveyard-esque feel. I bought the Sally Hansen antique gold…not recommended.
#3. If I had to choose one vegetable to eat everyday for the rest of my life, it’d be a toss up between roasted butternut squash & parsnip fries… only if they were acommpanied by a side of Light Ragu, though.
The cooked squash & zucchini that I ate with them were delicious drizzled in Light Gazebo Room dressing, I might add.
#4. Props to the boyfriend for matching my Christmas dress without even having to coordinate. He’s even colorblind! Impressive, no?
We enjoyed the kids’ Christmas play at my parent’s home church this weekend. I had several cousins in the production and I’m so glad we didn’t miss it!
#5. While at church, this old woman beside us was relentless on trying to get us engaged. I swear, she was on us like white on rice.
#6. I don’t want to sound like the grinch, but this week is the FIRST I’ve listened to Christmas music and not felt the need to change the station as soon as it came on. One week of Christmas music per year is plenty for me.
#7. Since #2 was a fail, I’ve been dying to get ahold of some of the Sally Hansen Salon Effects Holiday Collection!
I especially like the candy cane striped version!
#8. I am getting SO excited to give Jarid his gifts. I would totally spill what I got him on the blog, but sometimes he reads it…and I don’t want to ruin any surprises!
#9. I just realized I did a whole bunch of veggie roasts this weekend, as per the photographic evidence.
This salad beast was delicious, thinking back. Roasted beets, roasted broccoli, roasted brussels, roasted shroomies, and roasted squash atop a bed of baby spinach and drizzled with the last of my Annie’s Lite Honey Mustard dressing.
* Note to self: order more Annie’s from iHerb.com.
#10. Banana Chocolate Chip Vitatops.
They are YUMMMMMMYYYY.
Vitalicious sent me a generous sampling package of these and the Pumpkin Spice variety since I hadn’t had the chance to try them! Typically, I buy the Deep Chocolate and Golden Corn, which are two of my favorites, but these just may take the cake – pun intended. 🙂
I ate mine slightly thawed but still kinda frozen. It’s totally dessert worthy. Try them out of the toaster, too, or microwave them in the plastic for about 45 seconds (which locks in the moisture, so they don’t taste dry).
Tomorrow is hump day! For once, I’m not ready for the week to be over. There’s far too much to do and too little time to do it!
What’s one thing you’re diggin’ about this Christmas season? Anything in particular on your wish list?
