Christmas in January

Though it took me a good two weeks, our Christmas decorations were taken down before Florida weather started to creep back up into the ’70s.

However, even without a tree and twinkling lights, I just cannot seem to escape the Christmas spirit. Look what arrived in the mail today:

Christmas Stockings!

I orderd these embroidered stockings from Pottery Barn for me and Ryan after Christmas when they went on sale.

Our 2010 Stockings

Since Christmas 2010 will be our first official Christmas as a married couple, I figured we needed matching stockings, right? Oh Lord, I’m gonna be that kind of wife, aren’t I? 😉

After putting away the stockings, Ryan and I took Sadie on a walk around the lake. It was a little cloudy outside, but the temperature was great! I love being able to wear a t-shirt and comfy pants and not feel cold or hot. Us Floridians have to take advantage of weather like this, because it’ll be hotter than the sun in no time.

Once we got home, Ryan left for a soccer game (I hope they win!), and Sadie and I got to work making dinner. As always, when I’m on my own I crave breakfast for dinner, so that’s exactly what I had.

As part of Foodbuzz’s Tastemaker program I received a coupon for a free carton of Eggland’s Best eggs, so I had a full carton of eggs callin’ my name in the fridge.


Apparently these eggs have a lot more vitamins than other eggs. I couldn’t taste all those extra vitamins (which is probably a good thing), but I could taste deliciousness. I love dippy eggs!

Breakfast Fo' Dinn-ah

In addition to my two dippy eggs, I filled my plate with a slice of Canadian bacon, veggies and a toasted whole wheat Arnold sandwich thin.

Red Onion, Mushrooms, Squash

I used 3/4 of the sandwich thin to soak up the egg yolks and saved the left over quarter to make a mini-dessert.

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Dessert

I topped the remaining 1/4 thin with chocolate PB2 and chocolate chips. (Another handful or two of chocolate chips may or may not have made it into my mouth as well. 😉 )

I bet I could eat breakfast for dinner five days out of the week and love it! Maybe that’ll be a fun little foodie experiment for the future…

Hooray for Friday tomorrow!

  8. You were smart to order the stockings when the went on sale! I should have thought about that before we got married…instead for our first married Christmas I had to try to explain the cost of everything from Pottery Barn.

  9. Ha! I turned into that wife too. LOL! Our first Christmas was when I really got into Christmas as a family (Pre-marriage, I was already knows as Little Miss Christmas). But that was the year I ordered matching embroidered stockings just like you. :o) It’ll be fun to start new family christmas traditions once you are married. 😉
