Good morning y’all! I had every intention of posting last night, but at the end of the day it just didn’t happen. Ryan made a crackling fire, we watched a few episodes of Friday Night Lights [we’re addicted], and I made sure that none of our remaining Thanksgiving leftovers went to waste 😉
I hope everyone had a fun Friday and has a wonderful weekend! It’s supposed to be bea-uuu-tiful weather in the DC area… This morning Ryan and I are taking our cars to get oil changes and I’m not sure what the afternoon has in store for us. Maybe some Christmas decorating?
P.S. Yesterday was the last day of November aka the day to share this month’s Foodie Penpal goodies… This month I received a box full of Thanksgiving inspired fixings and a recipe for Cranberry Relish, yum!
For the month of December, Foodie Penpals will be participating in a charity to raise money for Hurricane Sandy victims- click here to read more and join.

Yesterday… #elf4Health 11/30 Day 5: How many colors can you eat today? Challenge yourself! Just as I thought, I had no problem eating many rainbow throughout the day- I wasn’t keeping track but my best guess is that I ate approximately 4-5 rainbows?!
This weekend… #elf4Health 12/1-2 Day 6 and 7: Clean out your closet! Fill a bag with clothes to donate to Goodwill or send some belongings to Sandy victims. Get the whole family involved! If you have kids, let them pick out a few things they want to give away. Ask your spouse or significant other if they’re will to donate as well! Ryan and I recently cleaned out our closets to donate to the Lupus Foundation, but I’m sure our other closets could use some gleaning…
Question: Have you decorated for Christmas? It’s high on my to-do list! I need to find a big, burly, truck driving man to help transport our Christmas tree…
Question: Would y’all like to see more recipes? I’m not very good at remembering to post recipes but I’d be happy to share more if y’all are interested!
