Merry Christmas Eve! May your holiday be filled with cheer, enjoying company with your loved ones near and far, and blessed with happiness! Home is not always a physical location but with someone you love and I’m always happy to spend holidays with Mike. It’s even better when spent with more family but if not, that’s when other times spent together are even more special. :)
I love decorating our place right after Thanksgiving and the lights from the Christmas tree always put a smile on my face. (Notice two (but not all) of our Steelers ornaments.)
We had so much snow last weekend and it was awesome! I love watching the snow fall especially when I wake up from a nap to snow! After the snow there were wind chill temperatures in the negative, then we had some snow freeze, icicles form, melting snow, and then a bit more snow last night. One of the Pilates studios where I teach has crazy big icicles, look out below!
I participated in a Secret Santa exchange at Colectivo and I made homemade bath salts using the Young Living essential oils I recently purchased. The bath salts couldn’t be easier to make- 1 cup of Epsom salts and 10 drops of Lavender oil. My Secret Santa loved the gift! I love seeing people get excited about the gifts they receive, it makes me so happy.
Mike and I will be having fun making delicious food while home together, making this year’s ornaments, and watching some movies. Yesterday Mike smoked a brisket and we had creamed spinach and roasted sweet potatoes for dinner with the brisket! I made coconut macaroons drizzled with chocolate and for Christmas Eve we’re having French toast casserole for breakfast and then king crab legs and lobster tail, smashed potatoes, and carrots. :) Yesterday’s movie was White Christmas and today’s is Star Wars as a follow up to the new movie, Rogue One.
Have a wonderful weekend!
