Is this pink snakeskin puppy carrier for my MALE dog any less horrible since it was a Christmas gift and not a self-purchase?
Because I’m hoping that’s the case
In all reality, it’s been a little over a month since I was regularly posting here on Itty Bits, and to be honest my little hiatus couldn’t have been more perfectly timed (which I’ll get into more deeply in another post.) My Christmas break was spectacular, and not only did I get to enjoy a full week off of work, but I also was able to soak in more family time than I have since my move down to Miami. With less scheduled blog time/ more free time, I was even able to help out some family with wrapping and running errands a lot more than I typically am able to, which was definitely great news.
Other notable mentions? The bacon-wrapped almond-stuffed dates that I made for a party (which were devoured in 5 minutes flat)
And were SUPER easy to make! I stuffed the dates with almonds, sliced the bacon slices in half and wrapped each half around a date, stuck a toothpick through the whole thing, then baked them on 350 degrees for 20 minutes. I also flipped the dates half-way through the cook time, just to be thorough.
Worshipping in the church Christmas choir (can you spot me?)
Kicking off the New Year at my first official Bunco party,
and getting caught red-handed during a midnight kiss.
Finding any excuse to whip up a latte with my new Aerolatte,
(I think I’m up to 3 per day now, coffee & chai tea lattes combined.)
Apples To Apples galore,
Priceless photo opportunities of Sleeping Beauties,
Christmas reindeer (or Mickey?) cookie making,
and spending lots of time thinking up creative & quality Christmas gifts for my loved ones. Rest assured that my brother was THRILLED about sporting this one
A fabulous start to 2013 indeed! Let’s hope that the rest of the year is just as good
A bit to think about: Any highlights from your winter celebrations?
