What a long but wonderful day! I’m ready for a nice rest in my cozy bed. There will be no sugarplums in my dreams – I’ve had enough sweets already!
For cocktail hour my mom put out her famous sherry cheese, Karen’s Krab dip (from Fresh Market) and some crunch –
We played the game Outburst while we munched – what a fabulous game for a crowd!
And I had part of a Squirr-ale. They are 8.5% alcohol, so half was good for me
Our dinner was wonderful. Pineapple ham, cranberry sauce, oyster pie, rolls, sweet potato pineapple casserole + maple brussels sprouts.
With dinner I had a glass of Mark West Pinot – one of my favorites!
Seconds on my favorites!
For dessert we had a selection of cheesecake slices from a local store. I had a tiny sliver of each (on a dessert plate!): Chocolate, Strawberry + Caramel Apple
We schmoozed afterward with Larbs’ friends, who stopped by, and I enjoyed a bourbon ball + toffee. I’ve been ready all week to have one of these toffee chocolates!
And lastly, a Reeses cup from the husband’s stocking!
Tonight’s recap: Feeling OK. Sober. Sugar overload is questionable.
I’m ready to go to bed a little early tonight. We’re trying to hit the gym before we leave for the beach early tomorrow morning. And I need to catch up on sleep!
