New Year's Day

So yesterday after I posted in the morning, New Year's Eve hit me kinda hard and I felt like crap until about 3 PM. I literally laid on the couch all morning and had ginger ale to drink and a piece of toast.

By 3 I was feeling better and did some yoga to stretch out my legs, then got ready for dinner at the parents house. Mom always makes pork roast on New Year's Day. I am not sure why, she says it is good luck or something like that.

So we got there to find crackers, cheese and veggies out per usual with my mom. I had about 5 crackers and some veggies as I was kinda hungry from not really eating all day. We then took the puppy for a 45 minute walk before relaxing with some football and dinner.

Here is the table all set. We had the already mentioned pork, roasted potatoes and carrots, baked beans, applesauce, salad, and some bread. I was good and had one small plate and 2 little pieces of bread.

Later we had some sweets. I tried one piece of this candy that a friend on mom's made.

Then it was Pumpkin Cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory and some coffee with egg nog.

It was a yummy night and now I am off to make the pancakes I wanted yesterday morning. I already did a 20 minute workout, still not feeling 100%. Today will be filled with some shopping with mom and my little cousins (maybe the hubby too). Lunch out and then hopefully some clean up of decorations around the house.
Enjoy your weekend!


  1. Everything look sooo good! Was that peppermint bark?

  2. Thanks, my mom will be happy to see that. It is not peppermint bark, it is some toffee candy thing, but really good.
