I ate a lot of food and cooked even more.
Christmas Eve was the main event hosted by my sister and I at my dad’s place. We made sushi, spring rolls, pulled pork sliders, mini grilled cheese sandwiches with shooters of tomato soup, baked brie, and a bunch of other tantalizing appetizers.
Turns out, these Pear, Blue Cheese, and Toasted Walnut Salad Spears? Seriously good.
Lots of Hot Yoga and Weightlifting
I started up my new 5/3/1 weightlifting routine of presses, squats, and deadlifts. It has been keeping me in the gym slightly longer than usual with all the reps on the accessory exercises.
My friend Jasmine got a pass for the hot yoga studio while she’s in town for Christmas so we went together a couple of times and I went without her too. Ahhh… I’m loving yoga.
. . . a tea infusing travel mug from Matt.
It has a lid I can use to rest the mesh insert when my tea is done steeping and better yet, this one is a thermos to keep my hot stuff hot.
I also scored some gift cards to SportChek (I see hiking boots in my future!) and a nice cash-infusion.
I Experienced the Awesomeness of Fondue, again.
My girlfriends and I got together for a FUN-due evening while everyone was home for the holidays. We hit up The Melting Pot for the cheesy, meaty, and chocolatey goodness of fondue.
I love going here for dinner. It’s makes for a nice, long night out where you can chat while your skewers of meat simmer away in the pot.
I saw my cousin get hitched
I went to the bachelorette party last weekend hosted by my cousin’s seriously fun friends and then came the rehearsal on Thursday where I met more of her seriously fun friends, and finally this weekend was the wedding. . . which did not disappoint.
And I’m so happy for my amazing cousin and her new husband, whom I very much adore.
I filled up on cake and a lot of cookies so I couldn’t even try the late night poutine bar (umm. . . how cool is that?!) and then I literally danced for hours.
. . . And it’s not even New Year’s yet!
Oy. What a jam packed holiday.
