Monday Monday

Wow! This is my last week of work for the 2007 year. I'm very excited!! :) I'm so fortunate to have time off next week and the following. I hope to use it to rest up before Nathan arrives. Of course, he could have other plans.

I hope everyone had a nice weekend. I did and, of course, it was way too short. Friday night, we ordered Outback takeaway and hung out with mom. Saturday was, for the most part, errand day. Mom was nice enough to tag along while we picked up items for a few friends and holiday dinners. We did managed to squeeze in a pedicure and lunch. Oh and finally my car is clean!! I hate dirt and little rock bits in the floor of my car. Sydney also likes to decorate the backseat with shreds of paper, stickers and who knows what else. :)

On Saturday night, Marc and I attended my company holiday party. It was great and the food was awesome. I only wish I had the room to eat more!!! Check out our menu:

Apps

Lemon Thai Tuna Tartlets (THE BOMB!)

Sushi Tuna Cups with Wasabi Cream (I heard they were good. Boo hoo!)

Seared Tuna Skewers with sauce (Again, I heard they were good. Bummer!)

Sliders (These are the BEST!!! We had them last year and they brought them back because they were so good.)

Crab Cakes

Baby Lamb Chops

Sweet Potato Tempura

Dinner

Spinach Salad with Apples, Walnuts and Bleu Cheese

Scalloped Potato Casserole

Lobster in a Citrus Marinade

New York Beef served with Fried Onions and a Creamy Horseradish Sauce

Dessert

Fresh Berries (Toppings: Carmel, Chocolate and Creme Fraiche)

Chocolate Bread Pudding and Carmel Ice Cream

YUM! YUM! YUM! You know how much I love food!

Sunday, my dad made a surprise visit! :) It was very exciting and I was, thankfully, prepared. We had ribs, green beans and mashed potatoes for lunch. It was so great to spend some time with him. Although, I was very tired from having stayed out too late the night before.

In other great news, the Skins kicked butt yesterday and we have a small chance at a wild card spot!!! Come on, boys! You can do it! Since we won yesterday, we had celebratory doughnuts in the office this morning. I also made it to Starbucks!! The week is off to a great start.

Have a great day!

Yum! That is quite the menu for the office Christmas party. And I'm so jealous that you're off of work for the whole rest of the year. I only get one day off :( boo hoo.

I think I gained 10 pounds just reading all your food! You better not have that baby while I am out of town. Although I will be checking everyday to see if you do :)
