Happy Christmas Eve!!

*insert festive music here*

Well, since my family celebrates Christmas on Christmas Eve I thought I should get this one last post in so I’m all caught up and can relax.  Tonight we’ll partake in snacks, gifts, chatter, laughter and probably a few loud family arguments.  :)  I’m in charge of prepping all of the snacks so for the rest of the day I’ll be up to my elbows in onion dip, slicing cheese, and chopping veggies.

My cold is getting better.  I’ve been doubling up on the Tylenol Cold & Flu pills and they are working.  At least I won’t be blowing my nose all over the family tonight.  (I know, lovely image right?)

The last couple of days have been “OK” foodwise, but like I said yesterday I don’t like to compromise at Christmas so the lack of exercise is being accepted and instead I’ll just be OK with a small gain when I get home.  Hopefully I’ll be able to get at least a couple of walks in over the coming days…we shall see.

If you are going to have a fast food burger…a Mama burger with cheese never disappoints. haha.


We found these super cute mini pineapples at the supermarket.  $6 each though so we didn’t buy one.

Last night I met my Nanaimo girlfriends Melinda and Christy for dinner at Gina’s Mexican Cafe.  I’ve been going there for years, but just last year I discovered their fish tacos.  Holy yum!!!  I ate the two halibut tacos with guacamole but left pretty much all of the beans/rice/corn.  Mel and I sat there with our water for like an hour after dinner just catching up and chatting.  Thanks to Gina’s for not kicking us out for hogging up a table!

Melinda brought me a treat from her favorite chocolate store too!


Got all of my wrapping done last night so today’s all about the food prep.  Can’t wait to sit down and see the family tonight.  Tomorrow Mom and I just chill out and watch movies, and our turkey dinner will be on Boxing Day.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you all!!!
