Sugar Date

I don’t know about you, but my “holiday weekend” started at 5 pm today!!! Woohoo!!!

Today was my last day of work this week, and I couldn’t be more excited.

AND I’m just excited to be doing all kinds of holiday stuff tonight and tomorrow  :)

I was pretty busy working this afternoon and somehow got through the afternoon without a snack – I’m not sure how that happened, but that leaves more room for dessert tonight.

Dinner was quick + easy since we still have so much to do tonight.


We heated up the last of the picadillo from the other night and I steamed some broccoli for a quick meal.


Plus, eating this tonight meant we wouldn’t waste these leftovers.


We also had some of this brew with dinner – it’s good and from North Carolina!


And now, the rest of my night includes a lot of this –


and this –


plus wrapping presents and a few of these little treats from one of my coworkers.



Better get started – I’ve got a lot to finish by tomorrow.


What’s your favorite Christmas / holiday treat?
