A disjointed post about all the happenings

I want to wish all my faithful readers (mom and Keely) a very Merry Christmas (just kidding, I really do mean all 10 of you and you know who you are)! Company will begin arriving sometime this afternoon and I can hardly wait to see everyone.

I've got a lot done around here the last couple of days - just when I thought I was drowning in my to do list there it is, the light at the end of the tunnel! (Greatest site ever by the way - thank you to the blogger who showed me it, exactly which blog is escaping me, but please know you have made life easier for me and I thank you xo)

So here are some things I've crossed off the list:

I finished this book

I loved it! It's not exactly an easy read, you need concentration but I found it well worth it and would like to give a shout out to the librarian who took pity on me and allowed to renew for a 3rd time (you're only allowed 2 renewals). I love memoirs and this is a good one!

I cooked up all my shrimp for shrimp cocktail and have it chillin in the fridge. This is the best cocktail sauce ever by the way... available seasonally (as in now) at my home away from home, Costco!

I've made this, these and even this! Not too shabby, right?!

I wanna wish you a Merry Christmas, from the bottom of my heart... so I'll leave you with this holiday favorite. I'm sorry, it's just not Christmas without New Kids on the Block :)

Who do you feel more embarrassed for in this video? Jordan when he tears off his leather jacket or Joey Joe when he does that booty dance? Discuss amongst yourselves :) xo, Brie

I liked when Jordan pulled his jacket off. I'd definitely do him!


Merry Christmas from Central Jersey to North Jersey!

A.) I have tried and tried to read that book and just couldn't get into it. I'm going to dig it back out and give it another try. I really want to enjoy it. Maybe this will be the magical time.

B.) Man do I love me some NKOTB at Christmas time. Nothing says Happy Holidays like Jordan's bare chest. But, where was Jon? It's just not the same if there is a defector.

I hope you and your family had a very Merry Christmas!

toi - my sister said the same thing about the book, just couldn't get into it. It really could be a perfect time to read - I hope you like it the second time round
