Have you heard of the Christmas Pickle?

Why not mix in a little fruit?

TJ came home around 2pm on Christmas Eve Day after being on a 6 day roadtrip, and that kicked off our "last Christmas before we're married" celebration. We feasted like a King and Queen on Christmas Eve over a game of Monopoly, then we enjoyed a wonderful Christmas Day brunch coupled with Elf, Home Alone, phone calls, and Skyping back home to our families.

The last few days have been a wonderful overindulgence of food and wine (calories don't count from December 23rd to December 28th in my book) but I am definitely happy this time only comes once a year and I can't wait for my food baby to go away!!

How was your holiday? 


  1. You just made me so so so hungry! Happy almost New Year!

  2. my mouth is watering... all that looks soooo delicious!

  3. all of that food looks so delicious and I just got extremely hungry thanks to you. But, that's OK. I would have to say that the homemade cinnabons and deviled eggs look uh-mazing!

    a lot of people don't appreciate a good deviled egg but I sure do. I love Thanksgiving and Christmas because I know I'm guaranteed one or two or six?
