What's cooking this week?

It's going to be a quick list for this week since we are heading down to "So-Flo" for the holidays....
Sunday: Grilled Honey Orange Chicken Salad
Thursday: Loaded Veggie Pizza (no cheese on my side)
Friday: Shrimp Tostadas

Tomorrow night we're leaving to go to my Aunt & Uncle's house. We now call them "Grant & Gruncle" since they have reached "Great" status! It wasn't easy to make the decision not to go to New York for Christmas (but I have no doubt we will still have a wonderful time). There were various reasons but one was that Hubs was in the process of interviewing for a promotion. We just didn't feel the timing was right for him to be taking off. Guess what!?! He got the job!!!!!! He has gone from a Student Advisor at the college he works for - to the Manager of Student Records! I'm so ridiculously proud of him! Tomorrow is his first day too. He is such a hard worker and I know he will be amazing in his new role! Ella and I are lucky ladies for sure!

Today is going to be a cozy stay at home kind of day (it is 82 degrees out, but will pretend it is cold). My goal is to get organized and spruce up around here. There is stuff EVERYWHERE! It amazes me how quickly our home goes from being clean, to totally cluttered! We do live in an used to be spacious, but now with all of Ella's "gym equipment" (ha) it is starting to feel a little smaller. I probably feel that way more now because of all the Christmas presents. This is the first time we have ever had presents under our tree! Normally we ship everything to New York and wrap it all when we get there. Between all of the goodies that were sent to us, plus all of the presents we bought...there is a lot happening.

I'm going to get started with the cleaning before our little beauty wakes up from her long morning nap. On a more fun note...I'm also planning on a Christmas movie marathon, cookie baking, present wrapping kind of day. Maybe I'll even crank up the AC and sip on some hot cocoa!

Happy last Sunday before Christmas!!!
Ella is excited for Santa!!! She LOVES toys...if only she had more....
(*Chelsea and I are putting Kitchenspiration on hold at least through the holidays and hope to start it up again soon!)
