I am at the point in life where I am really, really, REALLY bad at narrowing down gift items. I can pick gifts for others…but myself? No way. In an effort to be helpful…hehehehe…… I have come up with the below list of stuff I would probably never get for myself. In order to come up with this list, I picked the first 6 things that came to my mind. Never-mind price or practicality (hello, Puppy?)…Nobody but mister is going to get me a $400 mixer. 🙂
Are you terrible at proposing gift ideas for yourself??
In other news…..I really enjoy the holiday season…especially with young kids….more on that in the next post.
Holiday traditions….ever sat down and really thought about the ones you grew up with and how they influence you now? Quite frankly I never gave it much thought, until the girls. Mister and I were pretty all over the board with what we did activity wise for Thanksgiving and Christmas….but for a few exceptions we always go to my SIL’s house in North Dakota for Thanksgiving and she comes to our place for Christmas. Mister and I decided that some Thanksgiving (activity) traditions need to be started for the girls…..something that will remind them of the yearly, wintery trek to NoDak. My mom gave me a Rosette iron annnndddddd SIL (sister in law) and mister have one that comes from their grandma. Me thinks this could be it!
SIL pulled out the trusty family recipe and went to work. (if you want to adjust for vegan…use soymilk and Ener-G)
SIL and mister were in charge of the batter and the irons….
Captain Destructo had the sugar station.
Little Bit and I were the official taste testers. I love my job.
This is Year 1 of 1….wish us luck in getting 2 of 2.
