Merry Christmas Eve!


I am Elvis Sparkley Toes!

Sunday: Another family Christmas 🙂


Yesterday I had my lately usual bacon and egg sandwich on a toasted sandwich thin . This time I used cheddar cheese.  I had some unsweetened almond milk to drink.  I don’t like coffee and I was’t in the mood for tea :/

I did a little shopping at Kohl’s  followed by grabbing a few last minute items from Kroger.  While shopping I grabbed a skinny cinnamon dolce latte from Starbucks since I was now in the mood for something warm to drink!  This is one of the only drinks that I could find that has minimal carbs and sugar, besides normal coffee.  I am not a huge coffee fan so it has to taste good!  It was yummy and had 14 grams of carbs and 12 grams of sugar.

I did a nice leg circuit at the gym after shopping.  I’m working on my jump rope “double unders” and I’m catching on pretty quick!

After the gym I came home and got ready for the rest of the evening.

We spent the evening at my Aunt’s house.  When we got there she had a nice selection of beer, wine, appetizers and treats!  Everyone was so happy to see each other… and all the drinks 🙂

My favorite was the cheese with blueberry sauce.  I went back for seconds of that!

For dinner we had tenderloin, honey baked ham (only the best!) corn casserole, green beans, salad, and bread.

Dessert came out after which was homemade cookies and tons of other deliciousness!  I  ate 2 buckeyes and I think I ate about 18 caramel cashew clusters.  Who doesn’t like chocolate, caramel, and salty all together in one bundle of joy!?!

We also played “secret santa” and my dad went for the big box.  He opened it and I knew pretty much instantly that I wanted to steal it 🙂
