Happy December, everyone!
This is the best time of the year, and I’m back to doing Vlogmas, so don’t forget to check out my daily videos on my Youtube channel. They will be a day in the life style vlogs with a few festive things here and there. I dropped the intro yesterday and the first vlog of vlogmas this morning! 😊
I hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving, no matter how you celebrated it this year. Even though it’s December, we are still eating the leftovers! We had the best time with my mom and dad and kyle’s mom. We hadn’t seen Kyle’s mom in a year, and it was so nice to see her again. This was such a fun and PACKED week.
On Wednesday, I got my nails done since Thanksgiving was coming up, and I needed some festive Christmas nails. After my nail appointment, I headed to Starbucks for a tall almond milk cappuccino with one pump of peppermint!
We also had our new Peloton arrive! Kyle is obsessed with it. I road it for the first time today, but I need to get some shoes for it before taking any classes.
That night, we headed next door to say happy birthday and have some cake with the neighbors! On Thursday night, we picked up Kyle’s mom from the airport. We sat around the kitchen eating coconut shrimp and I started making the pumpkin pies, cranberry sauce, and a few other Thanksgiving recipes! It’s better to do everything you can the night before to make everything run smoothly on Thanksgiving Day. My very first turkey turned out amazing! I can’t wait to make it again next year. I’ll update my blog recipe soon, so it’s available for next year! I don’t know why I was so intimidated to make a turkey. It’s so easy! We had enough food to live off of for a month! We are still eating leftovers. My neighbor made us a batch of her homemade rolls and mac and cheese to go with our meal. I sent her a pumpkin pie in return. 😊We had stuffing, gluten-free stuffing, mac & cheese, homemade rolls, shrimp salad, roasted potatoes, green beans, turkey, cranberry sauce, cookies, pumpkin pie, pumpkin pie crumble bars, dark chocolates, and more! We spent the evening playing fibbage and laughing off our food comas. On Friday after Thanksgiving, I headed out to take some Christmas photos for a family in the neighborhood. They turned out so cute!!!On Saturday, Kyle, me, and his mom headed to our mall to look at a few sales.
We stopped at our favorite restaurant, Reids Fine Foods, for a quick bite to eat first. I had the arugula salad with salmon. The food is ALWAYS good! Later in the evening, we headed to Napa at Kingsley for dinner. I ordered their special, the Swordfish, over arugula, green beans, shrimp, and risotto. We spent ALL of Sunday morning/early afternoon filming the Vlogmas intro! My mom came over to help film, and Kyle’s mom had so much fun helping us too! This was a memory we’ll never forget! I’m thinking about posting some behind the scenes with the Santa scenes. It was SO SO SO SO funny!!!!
We headed to our favorite local Tavern, Killington’s, for an early dinner after filming! I ordered a turkey and avocado pita wrap and split some wings with Kyle!
I hope you all had a great week, and now I’m off to film a few things for tomorrow’s vlogmas video!
