I hope everyone, if you celebrate of course, enjoyed their Christmas. I woke up bright and early Christmas morning to get in some yoga just in case things got to hectic later in the day, which they did of course. Mr. Hercules decided he’d rather sleep in a tiny bit more then yoga with me.
After my mini workout, I had a protein pancake by the Christmas tree with some cinnamon toasted almonds and coconut. Perfect way to begin the day.
Our Christmas Tree ❤
I got a ton of awesome presents from my family. Here are some of my favorites! I got so many socks that I think I’m pretty set for the winter. I love fuzzy socks… do you?
I also got my favorite dark chocolate of the year, Ghirardelli!
My brother got me these awesome ski earmuffs. I don’t ski but I know they are going to be keeping me mighty warm.
He also got me the fourth book from the Cirque Du Freak series. I know it’s more for teens, but hey… I love the story line.
I thought this chocolate calculator was too funny.
My mom got me this mother-daughter necklace. It’s beautiful, isn’t it?
After the unwrapping and cleaning the mess from the presents, I baked some sugar cookies for the family. Too bad I can’t have them, they smelled delicious.
For lunch I made myself a “healthy pepperoni pizza hot pocket.”
I took a brown rice wrap and put spinach, mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, basil and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese. Just cook it like a quesadilla and voilà!
For a “snack”, I had some of the dark chocolate squares and homemade hot chocolate with Allan. He came over to spend the afternoon portion of Christmas with us. Of course, we hung out with the little brat.
I made some yummy cupcakes before dinner to have them ready for dessert for the family. They are always a hit!
The traditional Christmas dinner in my house is spanish pork aka “pernil, ” yellow rice with Pidgeon peas and whatever else is cooked up. I had some tostones and romaine to go along with this fabulous dish! Kudos to my mom ❤
Dessert was the peppermint bark parfait I showed you earlier. Allan and I split one and we just relaxed for the rest of the evening. Christmas was wonderful this year and I hope the new year ahead brings tons of amazing new adventures!
Question: How, if celebrated, did you spend your Christmas?
