Around Here (End of November Edition)

December 5, 2013


Last week was spent doing some December planning and enjoying the Thanksgiving holiday. Before heading to New Mexico to see some family, I made a little vegan meal for myself and my love. Nothing too fancy, but it was yummy. I flew down to New Mexico and stayed at my dad’s new house. We had a HUGE Thanksgiving day lunch with a lot of family, green chile and delicious food. I ate far too much pie. 🙂 Thankfully, I was able to borrow my dad’s shoes (because I’m terrible and packed last minute) so that I could hit the gym with him and my step mom.

I played with the dog, met their new horse and finally got to meet my nephew! He’s adorable and I had a lot of fun ticking his belly and listening to his chatty coos. It was nice to be back in my home state, and I even grabbed some of the best burritos ever to bring back to my love since he couldn’t come!

This past Monday I celebrated one year with my awesome man. Time has flown and I’m so grateful that I met him before leaving Hawaii. Excited to see what this next year brings for us both individually and as a couple. Other than that I’m (kinda) enjoying this winter weather! We got a decent amount of snow, but freezing cold temperatures here in Denver. The roads are slick and it’s so unbelievable cold, but it’s surprisingly fun to be back in a state with snow.
