Are You Dreamin' of a White Trash Christmas?

I hope everyone is having a happy holiday season, I can't believe we are less than a week away from Christmas--6 days to be exact. Now that finals are over, I finally had a chance to do some serious Christmas shopping. I must be a wuss because after the second bookstore, I was pooped and ready to go home! I didn't realize shopping was such hard work. How can those shopaholic find that fun. They must be a glutton for punishment...I think that's what it is.

Speaking of hard work, I went to my mother-in-law-to-be's house to bake Christmas cookies yesterday. We baked and baked and baked our hearts out. Fudge, English Toffee, sugar cookies, cupcakes..they were hopefuls to a department party but alas--I was half-baked (forgive the pun) from being in the kitchen for an extended period of time I couldn't make it to the toasting of our first cohorts of Ph.D. grads! Baking was SO MUCH fun but at the same time, so much work. I will have to post pics soon.

Afterwards, we had a yummy dinner of herb rubbed chicken, corn casserole, and fresh salad drizzled with rice vinegar and olive oil dressing. Maggie is such a good cook--I've never had a meal that was good because it was always absolutely delicious!!

Anyway, I'm looking forward to seeing my family over the winter break and some R&R. My honeybun will finally get to meet my parents and brother and his wife I'm really going to take my sweet time and enjoy the break while it lasts...

You can enjoy the holiday too and watch this animated cartoon fromToonedin.com on a White Trash Christmas!
