True Life: I'm A Wino

Ok first off, lets just talk about how when I came across this picture, I thought the side table was a Wine chiller...#winoproblems
Anyways...Happy Monday All! Today, like every monday, I am linking up with Bella from Bella And The City for Weekend Recap and Meg from Life of Meg for Mingle Monday! 

Friday I spent my time before John got home with DIY projects! I finished our garland, made a new Christmas wreath, and planted a succulent garden-I get that some of you are getting snow which is not ideal for cacti but, down here it is 78-80 degrees still haha. 

I also continued perfecting my grilling skills and made shish kabobs! 

Saturday I woke up early to run a few errands and meet my dad for a quick breakfast. The rest of the day was party day! One of my favorite little girls turned one on Thursday and we celebrated her big day today with friends and family. Their family holds a special place in my heart so I alway make it to any event I am invited to! 

Later that night, we also went to John's work party. They rented out a local restaurant for the staff members and their significant others. It was an open bar (score!) and a pretty fun time with good food, conversation, and raffles. 
Sunday J had to work for the majority of the day. I did a little cleaning, went to breakfast with my faja, the pups went to the groomers and I also managed to get some present wrapping in! I have to say, I am impressing myself with how ahead of the game I am this year. I also started addressing our Christmas cards and getting things ready to send out. When J got home, we watched one of our shows together then got ready for the Pats at 830! I made Hawaiian Sliders and Sweet and Tangy Korean Wings! We settled down with our full plates, a beer, the pups and our jerseys to watch the pats take on the Chargers!

Mingle Monday:
What is your favorite holiday tradition?
I'd have to say the night we decorate the tree! Last year and this year we would put on our (matching) pjs, make yummy Nutella hot chocolate with huge homemade marshmallows, put on a Christmas movie and get to decorating together. It is just a fun little time with just the two of us.

Don't forget to link up with the fabulous girls above! Happy Monday, y'all.
