Other than spending time with my family, the only good thing that happened during Thanksgiving is I got to eat a TON of crap. Specifically Russian Pound cake. Not sure why it’s Russian…. It’s my grandmothers recipe and it is my favorite favorite dessert. I only make it on Thanksgiving and Christmas though, so I make sure to really take advantage.
I have been dealing with a bunch of family stuff. Not the fun kind of stuff. The kind of stuff I don’t want to talk about. So instead I will tell you about how I am basically one of Santa’s elves and I have been getting in Christmas mood.
Copious amount of hot chocolate…
in my favorite winter mug…extra marshmallows please
I should preface this by saying I am all for cutting down my own tree.
every single year
but this year was different and I wanted to surprise J
sooooooo, this happened
I will now add “Lumberjack” to my resume because I had to not only trim the tree but also cut a piece off to save for an ornament
I am a Lumberjack, Tree stand expert
You call it crooked, I call it character
Then came the balls
and more lights
Add a Spice candle…. You have yourself a nice little evening if you ask me
Don’t worry. I have WODs
and that fun stuff to share
just not yet……
