They Know Me So Well…

Hey loves!!!! I hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday =) Mine was pretty nice; I spent a lot of time with my family which is always something to look forward to.

On Christmas eve we headed to my aunt’s house for a family party and I decided to make some cookies that Nicole posted the other day, I made some tweaks to the recipe (omitted the peanuts and used milk chocolate chips instead) but they turned out amazing!!!

Milk Chocolate Oatmeal Pretzel Cookies…


I am so happy to say that they were GONE by the end of the night. I asked my 4 year old niece if she liked them and she nodded yes and said she ate 3 already! woohooo

Christmas day was pretty laid back…we spent it at my mom’s house and just enjoyed spending time with each other.

My sister gave my mom the Zumba game for the Wii and my niece got Just Dance 3 so I spent a lot of time dancing!


And also opening presents…

Compression Sock from my niece…I used these yesterday for my 3 mile run and I loved them!


New Columbia Jacket from my mom


And a Panini Maker/ Grill from my sister!



My family knows exactly what I love!


I decided to use my Panini maker today for din din…

First I grilled some veggies…


While they were cooking, I cut up my Ciabatta bread…


And also made a Mayo Pesto Sauce…


I popped the sammie in the Panini maker with a slice of reduced fat Swiss cheese


And after about 5 minutes…din din was served!


It turned out great but I need to figure out how to season the veggies a little better, any suggestions????

Oh I forgot the best part about Christmas…Zen opening his gift!


Which he loved!!
