December + Leftovers

I can’t believe it’s December!!! This year has flown by…I just do not believe that Christmas is in less than a month!

I love the holidays – mostly because I always get to see family – and I can’t wait until the next one. Thanksgiving was so much fun, and I know Christmas will be just as nice.


Lunch today included more Chicken Tortilla Soup from the other night, with a little guacamole + red onion on top.


Plus a clementine!


I needed a little crunch with my soup, so I ended up buying these from the vending machine.


Meh – they were okay. I was hoping the machine had some pretzels, but I struck out on that one.
