It’s December peeps! As if you didn’t already know that. I’m still in disbelief at how quickly this year flew on by. It doesn’t feel like we should be preparing for another Christmas or to ring in the new year just yet. Alas, it is upon us!
Are you feeling the stress of the impending holidays?
This upcoming weekend, we have the first two of our many Christmas celebrations. My husband’s work Christmas party is on Friday night. I’m pretty stoked. Grandma is coming to sleep over with the munchkins. The hubs has booked us a room for the night. The last time I went to a company Christmas party was when I was newly pregnant with my first. Needless to say, morning sickness boycotted the party. I didn’t get to enjoy myself to the extent that I would have liked to. This year will be different. I can’t wait for some adult company!
Sunday, we’ll be hosting my husband’s Father and brother for Christmas dinner. I’m still not sure what I’m going to make. Whether it be a traditional turkey dinner, roast beef or something simple. One thing I know for sure is what I’m planning to make for dessert – a decadent White Chocolate Candy Cane Cheesecake. Yum!
Over the weekend I some how managed to sprain my knee. After days of urgent care appointments, an emergency echocardiogram and leg sonogram later, I’ve now been diagnosed. The doctor has insisted that I try to stay off my feet as much as possible in order to rest my leg. Clearly he doesn’t realize I’m a stay-at-home Mom to two little ones. Given the situation, my husband has offered to take over preparing dinners this week. He’s not really a cook, so I have been trying to plan out simple meals for him to make.
Over the next few days, we’ll be eating: butter chicken lasagna, pizza and Skillet Turkey, Vegetables and Stuffing.
I suck at taking it easy and staying out of the kitchen. The next few days should be interesting!
