Happy happy Monday!! I don’t think there is a happier Monday for me of the year than the one that is the last working one of the year! It is now 5 working days to go (including today) and 9 days till Christmas!
Since I had such a marvelous weekend, I thought I would do a Marvelous in My Monday’s post.
Thanks to Katie for hosting:
#2 Marvelous is finding the perfect Kris Kringle present. Every year at my mum’s house at Christmas we do Kris Kringle but we play a game called Evil Santa. For those not familiar with the game, everyone brings a present and puts it in a pile, you put numbers in a hat and everyone draws one out. The person that gets number 1 goes first and can pick any present from the pile, however anyone that goes after you picks a present from the pile if they don’t like what they got they can swap their present with anyone else’s gift from before. It is lots of fun but it also makes buying a present tricky as it has to be both gender neutral and age neutral and no more than $30!
I was happy to get this:
It is a serving tray with multiple bowls with tiny spoons, it could be used for serving dips or you could fill it with salt, pepper and sugar. It is probably more for a female but I know if one of the males got it their wife/girlfriend would enjoy it anyway! Now I just need to find a second gift for Nick to bring!
#3 Marvelous is going out for brunch with my best friend for one of our last catch ups before she goes. We went to a great brunch place local to her and I had my standard picks:
Poached eggs, avocado, smoked salmon and feta, yum!
#4 Marvelous is getting to spend some much needed time with Nick. He has been working late all week and probably will be all week this week in the lead up to get everything done before the break. We went out for brunch Saturday and spent Saturday night together having dinner and catching up on some Family Guy, American Dad and How I Met Your Mother, it was bliss!
#5 Marvelous is a great week of recipes to share with you from other blogs:
That’s a wrap!
How was your weekend?
Do you have to do Kris Kringle at work or with your family?
