TWTW - Last one before Santa busts in

HO HO HO MOFOS. Friday night was my work Christmas party. It was fun, festive, and full of beer. 
Saturday was much hausfrauing and making brownie batter dip and mini cheesecakes. 
The Mellor Christmas dinner at Dad & Carol's was an Italian feast with apps from the Italian Market, sausage, lobster ravioli in vodka sauce, and Carol made lasagna with fresh pasta and ricotta. Amazing! I was full all night. I only like fresh ricotta. I don't care for the ones you can buy in the dairy case. 
We had our nephews and Lori overnight on Saturday, and Lori and I hit DD, Target and PetSmart early. Then we went to Red Robin for lunch with my Mom, brothers, Aubrey and Nicole and it was glorious.
Guess what I found out? All seasons of Felicity are On Demand. So I did that and wrapped all the gifts. 

All of those things

  1. yay for holidays from work!! i'm supposed to be at work right now but T.O. has been hit with an ice storm so i'm using that as my excuse to stay off the roads. besides, people don't know how to treat an intersection when the traffic lights go out and i'm not about putting my safety last. work can suck it for today.

    Vodka and Soda

  2. Ho ho ho, MoFo! Enjoy your time off!

  3. Yeah for all the family time! My favorite part of the holidays! BTW - I didn't try it, but I did buy some Ugly Pug beer as a gift...the pug on the label was cute though! Made me think of King Geege. Maybe he brews while you're at work?

    Merry Christmas, my dear! Enjoy your time off!!

  14. I love that first shot of the beer and Christmas tree! Where was that taken? I thought of you last night, we had Friendsgiving Take Two, and my friend Bridgette is very much into cooking as you are. She made lasagna with homemade noodles and homemade ricotta.. reminding me of something you would do! Carol's looks delicious!

  19. I love WB era dramas so I can't believe I haven't watched Felicity. But have you watched Everwood? I love it so much! Hmmm, don't know that I have had fresh ricotta but it sounds delightful. I wish I were Italian or at least had someone who wanted to give me an Italian Christmas feast!
