This might be a long one!!

Oh so much to say!

Yesterday was a busy day!! 
I'm excited to say we got the Christmas tree up yesterday, we bought a new one and it's beautiful. 

We don't have all the decorations on yet, but here are a few of my all time favorites!! 
This one is new this year...

his one was always up on my grandma's christmas tree..  it is one of my favorites and is from Austria.  It is made with cloves, I know it's over 30 years old, yet it still smells amazing. 

And here is the clove ornament I bought in Austria when I went there after high school!!  It smells too!

Last ornament picture of the night is my Angel. 
I bought her and the money went to a daycare program in Africa.
I'm a total sucker for anything to do with kids!

I also wrapped all the presents for Dave's family, as we had to send them off to Newfoundland tomorrow.

I had a decaf peppermint soy latte to make the wrapping easier

I was also told to buy myself a gift for Christmas! 
(yes I'm spoiled -only child!!)
I got the choice between money or a gift .. 
I usually just take the money and I would have been responsible and spent the money on bills (BORING
This may or may not be what I got...

Don't worry, I don't get it until Christmas!!  hehe

I also finally did it... I took a picture in a restaurant.. haha..  We went to Taco Del Mar.. which was rated one of the top 10 healthiest "fast food" restaurants in North America.   I had a small chicken burrito on whole wheat, with black beans, a wee bit of rice, lettuce, cabbage and salsa... 

It was delicious!   Dave and I also shared (but didn't eat much) a side of chips with guacomole and salsa!!  Yum!! 

This morning I woke up with a HUGE craving for ants on a log... 
So I had it, with a super green monster (to the rescue!)

For lunch I made this YUMMY curried turkey salad.
Of course I didn't follow the directions, but it was really good. 
Even Mom approved (right ma?)

I added some of this to it just for fun too.  Totally added to the flavor

I ate it with nacho chips - because I didn't have anything else crunchy, they were a fun addition!

Then for dinner we went to Mom and Dad's for turkey...  YUM!!  It was good!!

Look at all the pretty colors.  Turkey, stuffing, peas, mashed yams, potatoes, cranberry sauce.
Here is the crew waiting for me (cuz I was taking pictures for all you folks)

Look at the nummy veggie plate in the middle, it hardly got touched (except I ate some cumbers and broccoli stems (my fav) 

Well if that post wasn't long winded enough, I don't know what was!!

Game plan for tomorrow =
Some kind of workout - I'm thinking long walk and some abs.
Lesson plan for this weeks classes
Return something
Teach my class
Yoga/Climbing (last one boo)

Hope you all had a great weekend! 

What was your 2 stars for this weekend ?(2 good things that happened)


  1. Your tree is gorgeous and I love all of the decorations you shared :)
    Taco Del Mar sounds yummy!
    Also... I love your choice of christmas gift!! You will have a BLAST with that!

  2. I had to work all weekend (lame), but I have tomorrow off so I'm hoping to have at least 3 gold stars after that!

  3. Your tree is gorgeous! We're waiting 'til next weekend to put ours up, so in the meantime I'll just enjoy yours from afar. :) We had a lovely 4 day weekend with American Thanksgiving and all, so I think I may have had a 4 star weekend, catching up with family and friends and all. Hope you have a great week!

  4. What a lovely tree ... and your favourite ornament is beautiful too!

    My two stars were:
    1) I went to my first Christmas party of the season
    2) I sent the draft of my thesis to my supervisor, and get a bit of a break while he takes some time to read through it and give me comments before I do my last draft.


Thank you so much for your support! I love comments!

Another option is to leave a comment here!

Have a great day!
