Today is Christmas Eve! I hope everyone has all their Christmas shopping done and presents wrapped. I’m still behind on my gift wrapping. My last few presents came via delivery yesterday so I’ll be wrapping today —yay!
The temperature lately has been extremely chilly! Chris and I are constantly wearing our sweaters and jackets inside the house with the heater on. Yep, it’s that cold! Some nights, the temperature even dropped below freezing. We lost a few of our hibiscus plants because of it (I think! We don’t exactly have green thumbs). I’m hoping our citrus trees will survive through the winter.
My mother-in-law’s visit was super brief! I thought we were going to spend the entire day together. It turned out, we only spent lunch and dinner together eating out. During the in-between time, she jetted off to sightsee with her fiancé. On the way to the city, they saw traffic on the Bay Bridge. The traffic in the city was so bad that they couldn’t make it to the Golden Gate Bridge so they turned back around. Bummer!
After a long weekend of eating out, I was relieved to be back in my kitchen cooking my own meals. I don’t know what it is but it’s really hard for me to constantly be eating out. I love the idea, but the food just tasted utterly heavy and it weighed me down. Not to mention how overly and heavily seasoned some of the meals are, I felt disgusted after eating!
It’s Friday! E and M will be visiting us this weekend. Kimi has already planned the weekend out so it’ll be lots of family time. I can’t wait to see my nieces! 🙂 We are celebrating K’s 2nd birthday so it should be lots of fun!
