The gift of eternal peace [Dec. 26th, 2010|11:52 pm]
[mood |sleepysleepy]
[music |Fan]

Hoping you all had a wonderful Christmas, Hannukah - Holiday spending time with loved ones, and eating lots of food time. :) Mine was fabulous, and little random is in love with his Nintendo DS so that's the favorite gift I've given this year and I was blessed with a ton of awesome goodies, but I'm really excited about the camera my fiance got me. :)

What's your favorite gift you gave?

Favorite gift you opened? :)

Favorite thing you ate? - My Dad's taco dip. It's my Mom's recipe but he totally did it justice. :)

Oh, and I'm guessing a lot of you have seen this because it was all over my facebook but just in case, and because it's essential information...


A Very Zombie Holiday Instructional Vehicle

Glad to hear you had an awesome holiday! =D

I gave my mom a pair of grey fingerless gloves I knitted -- embroidered with sakura branches. =) She LOVES them and I couldn't be happier!

She got me a guitar, which also makes me very happy.

Favorite thing I ate was definitely my grandmother's apple stuffing. It's my favorite holiday food!

Aww, that's so cool!!!!! What an awesome gift, on both counts! And oooh, apple stuffing? That sounds good. Is it vegetarian? If so I may need to find a recipe. lol. Sounds intriguing, too!

Fiance? OOOOH what have I MISSED!
My son LOVES NES the best! I found him one on Ebay last year.
Taco dip is yummy!
The bf is getting us a Wii for Xmas. Not bought yet because he's considering a Kinect. Actually he prefers getting that but it's new so I am leery. Plus we have friends with Wii who maybe can help if we have questions about it?

I'm very much in love!! Life is just wonderful. We've been friends for years, and so we have that foundation, and we make each other laugh and laugh, and I'm very blessed. My kid's so great too. I'm a really, really lucky girl. My health's starting to get back on track too. Now just have to find a good job and find a larger place for us to move into and it'll be wonderful. Our current place is itty bitty, so we're going to have to do something. I'm in the process of completely purging my house, hence why I haven't been around. Just going through everything. I have EIGHT bags of clothes to give away. I can't believe what a pack rat I am. I have clothes from Middle School that I was hanging on to. It's time to get rid of stuff. lol. You also wouldn't believe the amount of books I have. It's unhealthy. lol

-- Yay!!! Which did he decide on? Are you loving it? My fiancee got a Xbox 360 for Christmas, and I've played on it a few times and it is fuuuun.

So happy you had a fabulous Christmas!!

Zack was so hoping for an Xbox 360 but since this is the year he stopped believing in Santa, he decided on his own that we couldn't afford it. So imagine his surprise when he unwrapped his Xbox! The look on his face was completely worth it.

My favorite gifts were my sock monkey slippers and an iTunes card. I plan on spending my very lazy today scoping out some new music.

I was nauseous for the entire holiday so my favorite food was any food I could actually eat...turned out to be half of a sweet potato and gallons of peppermint tea.

Sounds like overall you had a wonderful Christmas too, save the being sick part! :( Hate that!!!! But peppermint tea is pretty awesome. You feeling tons better now? Cause if not, you should see a Doctor.. I took awhile to reply. lol. Sorry about that, been busy wedding planning and took another internet break to try and declutterfy my house. Little by little it's working. :) Have you tried Castle Crashers yet? It is soooo much fun. lol

We gave LEGO Battle (DS game) to the grandson - the happiness then intense playing made it the best gift we gave.
The best gift I got was the 2011 Zombie Papercraft caledar.
Best food? Toss-up between spiced apple cheesecake, meatballs, and kolachky.

Hope the Randoms have a very happy New Year!

That's awesome! Little Random really wants that one, too. I'm thinking maybe for his Birthday. Ooooh, zombie calendar for the win! =) What's Kolachy?

And thank, you babe! So far so good! Even quit smoking. Except for the occasional cigar. lol. I'm weird. How's your New Year going?

Kolachky are (if you come from a Polish family) little tasty cookies, squares of cream-cheese based dough wrapped over fruit or nut fillings. They look like this:

Unless you're descended from some other Eastern European people. Then you think kolachky is a kuchen (raised sweet bread).

Good on you for quitting smoking! I'll be doing that once I can get outside and walk again (I HATE Cleveland winters.) And there's nothing wrong with a fine cigar. Ooh, that sounds dirty.

WOOHOO! DOLLHOUSE! You rock! I always wanted one of those, and if I've ever blessed with a Little Randomette I'm totally getting her one. They are sooo cool!

And woohoo adorable clothes! That's awesome!
How are you doing?

Yams are delightful. Now I'm hungry. I blame you. ;)

I always wanted one too. my parents got me one when I was around 8-- but it didn't come with any dolls and I didn't have any small enough to fit in the rooms. kind of tragic. so, I would decorate the house and that would be all I could do with it.

I am exhausted. definitely ready to be done.

Favorite gift I gave -- a set of corningware to my brother, who just moved out of my parents' house and is trying to figure out how to live on his own.

Favorite gift I opened -- a beautiful shawl.

Favorite thing I ate -- oh, that's a tie between the pear betty my mom made and the sweet potato casserole my fiance's mother made.

I hope your New Year is fabulous!
