So This Christmas we spent in New Jersey. My parents live in Atlanta and most Christmases we spend there but this year I decided to host Christmas. We spend every Thanksgiving at the farm in Kentucky and to help cut costs we had it here. I was sooo excited to have my parents and brother here. Unfortunately the day they were to arrive, I woke up with the stomach virus Nico had had two days before. I proceeded to have a very intimate relationship with the toilet bowl. Luckily for me, my parents were super delayed getting here and by the time they had arrived around 5:30, I was over the horrific part and was just weak from dehydration and fever. The next day proved MUCH better and I was able to eat and go to church and a Christmas Eve party. I was left with a bad head cold but THAT didn't stop Christmas! Christmas day I made Osso Buco and Butternut Squash Risotto for my family and my neighbors, Lesley and Ken and their two boys. It was YUMMY. I cooked all day but it was worth it. My mom made cornish game hens with her home made stuffing for my brother who won't eat anything. It was a great Christmas and we had a fabulous time. We even got to take a trip into the city to see the tree. I sincerely hope that all my friends and family had a blessed Christmas and that 2009 is healthy and happy for everyone.
Enjoy the pictures

I know I haven't posted in a while - and I have a ton to post about Thanksgiving and pictures and such but this video caught my attention. It's interesting and some might say - Oh here the media goes again making a moutain out of a molehill. I work in coorporate America and it has been very good to me....but I'd be lying if I said it wasn't male dominated and IN that can lean a certain way. It's certianly milder than it used to be I'm sure - but it still exists. It's comments like the govenor's that perpetuate stereotypes and I applaud Campbell Brown for saying so.
