Long time no see! I am trying my best to truly enjoy myself and my time off during my Christmas vacation. As a result, you have not seen much of me out in the blogosphere. I had a few posts pre-written before vacation and a couple more for the coming week, but other than that, you will not be hearing a whole lot from me. I am enjoying being with my family, boyfriend, puppy dogs, and friends. For the most part, my time with them is far more enjoyable when I am disconnected from technology.
I am six days into my Christmas vacation (and so no wanting it to end), and it has been great so far! I have a little picture re-cap post for you today highlighting some of my favorite parts. I hope your holiday experiences have been great thus far, too!
One of the things I made was my favorite EVER vegan chocolate pie. It has become an annual Christmas tradition.
Christmas Eve night was spent with Jeremy’s family. After a late night out, it was an early morning opening Christmas presents. I received tons of blogging essentials- a new camera lense, a tripod, a camera bag, a slow cooker, and new dishes. And I was more than pleased with my new Ray Bans, earrings, and clothing. My loved ones spoiled me!
Jeremy and I took a Christmas day selfie. This was the “nice” one, and you may or may not have seen the “snotty” (according to my mom) one on Instagram.
The day after Christmas was spent sleeping in, eating leftover cookies (I ate a kale salad, too!), relaxing, and watching TV. Jeremy and I also cooked dinner together. We made my Cauliflower and Corn Tacos. I think he agreed that cauliflower is quite delicious in tacos. Who knew?We finished out our night by watching “If I Stay” <– really good! and eating pie! Jeremy had lemon and I ate another slice of the best chocolate pie ever.
Saturday was full of relaxing and family time. Jeremy and I also hit up our favorite local Mexican restaurant for dinner with our friends, Stacy and Chris. I went with my go-to cheese enchiladas. The service left a bit to be desired, but it sure was a tasty treat!
Sunday was a day full of relaxing, enjoying my puppy dogs and family, blogging, cooking, and eating. My mom had a box of apples that looked a little past their time, so I made her some homemade slow cooker applesauce. It was delish!
I hope your Christmas weekend was wonderful, too! And if you are like me and still have several days off of work, let’s live it up while we have the chance!
