Things are still sort of quiet around here but I’m sure that won’t last for very long…Ryan is stopping by at 3:00 and then we have about 14 people coming over at 5:00. My family actually celebrates Christmas on Christmas Eve (present-wise…I know we are weird) so we are having our family Christmas after everyone leaves tonight. Unfortunately there’s no church service that we can make today since they all are at 5 or 6 this evening. Its the first Christmas Eve we haven’t gone to church and I’m sort of bummed about it. It helps keep everything in perspective, you know?
This morning I had to go to publix to get more flour and since it was so pretty I decided to walk. I’m glad I did because there were NO parking spots and it was insane. Before I left I snacked on two clementines
And when I got back I heated up this:
Paired with strawberries and olive bread, it became this 🙂
I also baked some cranberry walnut orange bread (I used Adam’s recipe from the club that I’ve made so often over the past months) to have for our Christmas breakfast tomorrow. It just came out of the oven now and smells heavenly.
Last night, my parents gave me an early Christmas present…………….a blackberry! I’ve always had such an old school beat up cellphone and now I feel like such an adult. I’ve already synced it to the blog. 🙂 Usually I don’t like to get new technology (laptops, cellphones….) because once I get comfortable using something I like to keep at it because, as we all know, technology is not jenna’s friend. However, this little hot pink blackberry seems very user friendly and I can’t stop playing with it! yay!
I’m off to shower, re-do my nails (I completely ruined my manicure by mixing dough by hand earlier…grrrrr) and get ready. Have a lovely afternoon with those you love and remember to keep it all in perspective!
