Happy Monday! I know that a lot of lucky people are off this week for vacation, and I am just trying to make it through a 3 day work week. I am so excited that it is Christmas week, although I always hate it because I know that on the 26th people will lose all of the Christmas spirit and cheer and return to normal. I wish the holidays lasted longer than 1 month, it just isn't enough time!
Adam and I celebrated Christmas over the weekend, and it was such a fun time! We kicked 'Christmas Eve' off with a surf and turf dinner (I am so upset I didnt photo the grilled lobster that he made because it was truly divine) and Home Alone. You just can't beat that movie! We also decided to open stockings so that we had candy to munch on, and I won $40 in scratch off tickets!
On Saturday morning we woke up, brewed some coffee and put together a breakfast casserole, then got right to the presents that were eagerly awaiting us under the tree. I wish I had some pictures of Adam and his gifts; he got a lot! Since I didn't have a big item idea, I ended up getting him a lot of smaller things. Among them were a food processor, sports t's, scrabble and a new game called 'Battle Drinks' which we proceeded to play that night. I loved everything I got, which included a package of meat and cheese (which I think is so funny because I really do love those things but don't think I ever mentioned it??), a bracelet that I had asked for and that Coach clutch that I was raving about before! I was really very surprised that I got that, and it goes to show that Adam really does pay attention and knows me well. It is something that I would never buy for myself at this point but that I absolutely love. I now find myself even more upset that we have no New Years parties to attend, because this really is a bag to be reserved for such events.
tell by touching and moving them that they are.
Since Adam's Limoncello is all ready and bottled up, he decided to infuse something else in his jar. We looked through the recipe book and I picked out the Sunny Tomato option. When we were in NC, we went to a restaurant called Bogart's American Grill that has a whole Martini Bar, and Adam got a Tomato infused drink which turned out to be really good, so I am hoping that this will channel the same result.
