Too bad we don’t have a Christmas tree this year 🙁 I’m slightly regretting the decision. Perhaps I should just find a wreath somewhere!?
I spent the afternoon making some videos with Jonathan, a videographer sent by Open Sky to get some professional product videos into my store. I’m sorry I didn’t take any photos! It was fun!! I probably said a few too many "ums" but the shoot went well. I’m excited to see them edited together in the coming weeks!
I was quite ready for a snack when we wrapped up around 4:30. I knew exactly what I wanted too:
Unfortunately not 20 minutes later Matt came down from a nap and proclaimed he was ready for dinner! I wish I hadn’t eaten the snack or we could have just had an early dinner. We ended up doing an "eat what you want" night.
He made a giant sandwich. Obviously.
I put together a plate of deliciousness –
Acorn squash slices ready for baking…
A POM + club soda cocktail ready for drinking
As dinner cooked, I sipped my drink and put Love Actually into the DVD player.
A huge exciting thank you to Heather for sending it to me!! She had two copies and heard me say on Twitter that I love the movie!!! I actually – heh heh – didn’t like the movie and was pretty disappointed in it when I first saw it, but this was my 3-4th time and it’s definitely one of my very favorite Christmas movies now!! I think it’s just hard to keep track of the characters at first, but now I love the themes and connections.
Thanks so much Heather!!
She even included some Operation Beautiful notes!
I cozied up in my Davidson LAX sweatpants #26!!! (I didn’t play lacrosse but just got these because my friend Whizzle did and I requested #26. They are the best sweatpants ever! And BTW, this is a self-photographed upsidedown photo that I rotated 180*!)
While I watched, dinner baked.
Mama Pea‘s Pumpkin Spiced Chickpeas!!
Squash ready for eating (~40 minutes at 400* after being tossed in maple, canola and salt and pepper)
Plus some steamed green beans + butter
I mixed about 1/2 a cup (plus pan nibbles!) of garbanzos with some wheatberries I cooked earlier today
Love acorn squash! I still haven’t had kabocha yet though…
I eat the skins of squash now. The taste is neutral and it’s fun to eat, but it does worry me a bit with all the fiber in my GI tract….
Simple beans for greens
Had a small bite of chocolate for dessert.
Going up to find a new book to read!
