Good evening peeps! Today is GREY CUP day in Canada - which is like the Super Bowl for Canadians!!! My provinces team is playing in the Grey cup, and we are currently winning! This is a really big deal! GO RIDERS!!!!!!!!

Last night the hubby and I went to his work Christmas party. He snapped a pic of me on the way out the door:



We started the night at a Japanese restaurant, where they cook the food at your table and do tricks with the knives. I had a Caesar, and a couple glasses of red wine throughout the night:



The hubby and I shared this mini dynamite roll:



And an order of gyoza:



The waiter then started cooking the main courses at the table:



He even made little volcanoes out of a stack of onion slices:



We got egg soup and rice:





I had the seafood special with lobster, shrimp and scallops:


The lobster was not in this pic, but you can see it in the one of the chef cooking.

After dinner we went to hubby's bosses house and I had a few chips dipped in taco dip (sorry no pics), and a couple drinks throughout the night. We had a good time!

This morning we were up early to do some stuff around the house. Breakfast was egg in a hole, and OJ:





Lunch was mac and cheese :-)



After lunch the hubby and I went shopping for house stuff and spent an obscene amount of money. We have been going CRAZY with the spending lately - ooops! Oh well, we can always make more money - that is my theory.

We went to hubby's parents house for dinner and had beef stew:


(I had to snap a pick of the leftovers they sent home with us because I forgot my camera).

I also had a glass of crystal light and a small bun.
Dessert was one oatmeal, raisin cookie.

I would like to thank Taylor from JoyOfFood for passing this award on to me:



Now I need to tell you 7 things about myself, and pass the award onto 7 other bloggers.
I could pass this award on to all of you, but since I can only pick 7, I would like to pass the award on to:

7 Things About Myself:

1) I love Hello kitty, and collect Hello Kitty things (I had dishes, and have been wanting to use them, but somehow they have gone missing during the renovations) :-(

2) I always check my cutlery before I use it (at home, restaurants, wherever) to make sure they are clean, and the dishwasher didn't leave any surprises behind. If they are not clean, I switch them with the hubby's cutlery :-) He is aware of this.

3) I think it is disgusting if people use hot water to brush their teeth.

4) I love stickers, and have a very large collection. I rarely use them as a teacher though.

5) Home Alone is my absolute favourite Christmas movie, and I watch it at least once every year around Christmas.

6) I love leg warmers, and leggings, and I don't care if other people like them or not - I wear them.

7) I get bored very easily, even though I always have a million things I can or should be doing.

~Tell me something interesting about you!~

i always always have to put in my right contact first and then left. but when i take them out, the left comes out before the right. OCD, i am.

One Healthy Apple said...

I love your dress and also that the party was at a Japanese restaurant- my favorite!

My random fact is that I have to cut my apple into 8 pieces- 4 slices. I suppose it's a little OCD!

I've never "won" anything before! Thank you!! I'm crying like Halle Berry at the Oscars when she won! BTW 1) cute dress and cute figure! HOLLA! 2) I have been spending like crazy too. As long as everything you buy will be used, I DON'T feel guilty.

We have a lot in common, I have loads of Hello Kitty things too and I used to collect stickers (although I don't have the collection anymore)and I love the first 2 Home Alone films.
