I just wanted a hot dog.......

Last night I was craving some good ole cookout food. A hot dog and fries were calling my name. Buttttt I then remembered that tiny little wedding dress I had to fit into. I got to thinking how I could still have a hot dog and fries but without all the fat. So this is what I came up with.
A turkey hot dog with grilled onions and red peppers wrapped in a lettuce wrap and topped with skim mozz cheese and a tiny bit of ketchup. Then I baked some sweet potato fries.

Since the sweet potato fries take a while to cook I snacked on some red peppers and french onion yogurt dip. This dip is my new addiction. It's only 25 calories for 2 tbsps. Amazing!

Once everything was cooked, I sat back and enjoyed my healthy cookout food!

Hope everyone has a safe and fabulous New Year Eve!!

Christmas 2013

I will go ahead and warn you this is going to be pretty lengthy.
I will start with Christmas Eve Eve. After work I headed to the mountains for the annual Ford Christmas party. They have been having this party for years and let me tell you, you will never go hungry. It is so much fun to just catch up with everyone that you don't get to see often. But this year there was a new little guy at the party.....
This time last year this bundle of joy was still in his mommies belly. Now seriously isn't he adorable!

I see a future model :)

But now that he is walking he is a quick little one. This is the best way to keep up with him ha.

After the party all the ladies went to our normal spot to really catch up, like always.

Days like this, reminds me how fabulous my bias are.

The next day, Christmas Eve, mom and I went shopping for our own family tradition. Every Christmas Eve we all split into teams and have a pizza making contest.

This year I introduced the cauliflower pizza crust. Let's just say the only people that liked it were the healthy eaters.

Team 1

Team 2

Team 3 (my sister is normally with me but she wasn't coming in until Christmas day)

Team 3 is just plan awesome!

The pizzas turned out yummy, I have to say it was the best cauliflower crust I had ever made.

That night we got in our comfy pj's and watched, It's a Wonderful Life. I still can't believe I had never watched it. I loved it, obviously. Then we all went to bed so that Santa could come.

The next morning it was odd because I was the only kid home. Everyone else was coming after lunch so I got the parentals all to myself for a little while.

But thennnnn my favorite little man got to town.

I have to watch or his grandparents will steal him and not give him back.

But since I had to leave early to go spend the rest of Christmas with the fiances family I got to hold him for a while.

After everyone got home, it was my favorite time. PRESENT TIME!!!

Carter got to go first. Well because he is most important.
The fiancee picked out this shirt, of course it's Ralph Lauren.

He loved all his toys but most of all I think he loved the paper the presents came in. I think next year I will just get him a box of wrapping paper.

But all this present opening wore this little man out. So I gave him some kisses and he went off to nap.

We then finished up with all of our presents.

After we finished I hugged everyone and thanked them for my fabulous presents and headed off to spend the rest of Christmas with the fiance's family.
Isaiah 9:6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Never forget the reason for the season!!

Sweet Sofia's turning ONE!

I can't believe it!! One of my best friend's daughter is turning one. Last weekend I woke up bright and early and headed to Charlotte for her birthday. When I got there I walked into Winter Wonderland.

The decorations were absolutely beautiful!!

Every inch of the room was decorated.

This would have been my ideal birthday party when I was a little girl. Candy EVERYWHERE!

I caught the birthday girl getting ready for her big day.

Mommy & daughter.

Auntie Wifey and birthday girl!

Daddy and birthday girl.
She loved these things. It was hilarious watching her eat them.

The food was so yummy. Chili is perfect for a winter wonderland theme.

More photos with the birthday girl!

What a wonderful little family!

There comes a point in your life when you realize who really matters, who never did, and who always will.- Unknown

Some things never change.

After stuffing our bellies with chili and snacks, it was birthday cake time!

Her family is Brazilian so they first sang happy birthday in Portuguese and then in English.
Half the time I never even understand what everyone is talking about when I am with them. But it is entertaining to say the least.

She was a big fan of the cake!

 The night ended too soon but it was wonderful being able to experience her first birthday. Can't wait for many more.
