I’m a little excited about this recipe because it’s probably the most low maintenance meal I’ve ever prepared. So I know it’ll be easy for you all to prepare. #NoExcuses
Its been a while since I posted a recipe. I’ve been so busy with events, I haven’t really been able to create and post recipes the way I’ve been wanting to. However, I’ll be posting more often from now on, I have specifically set aside days just to focus on blogging and getting to know you all better. It feels so good to be able to say when you will and won’t work, and even better to actually have a break for the holidays.
I hope all of you were able to get away from work for the holidays as well. I also hope you all enjoyed your holidays and that Christmas was all that you imagined it would be. I know I did…somewhat..
I prayed for a cold Christmas here in Houston, because its typically a little warm around this time. I got it – but I also got the cold that comes with the cold. ugh So Yes! I was sick on Christmas. But at least my family was together – which was another thing I prayed for.
I didn’t want to spend another Christmas divided between our families, it was amazing to have my family and Bears’ family together for the sake of our son and for the sake of our relationship. There’s always some type of tension during the holidays because both of our families always have something separately going on. My parents typically have family over their home and his parents the same. Naturally I would want to be with my family and Bear with his. So I was so happy that his family spent Christmas Eve with my family at my parents home, and my family spent Christmas Day at his parents home with his family. I was the happiest I’ve been in a while, it just felt so good. I don’t think Bear knows how happy this Christmas actually made me, sickness and all. (I’ll definitely express that to him tonight.)
I can’t wait until we have our own home and can host the holidays for both of our families every holiday. Hopefully, it’ll be by the time the holidays roll back around. *Continuously sending prayers up* In the meantime, I’ll continue to make sure Bear and I are working and doing all the things we need to do to ensure our preparedness for our dream home.
