Happy Holidays!

Okay, this post was originally set for Christmas, but I got lazy and forgot to post it. Merry belated Christmas and Happy Early New Year!

We hope your holidays have been spectacular!
We went to a few holiday dinners this week, but forgot to bring our camera to the events.
So we'll leave you with some of our Christmas "feast." One of our friends took us to Sam's Club and we went a bit crazy shopping.
Mike drinks sparkling cider like its water. So that's why we bought 2 4-packs of Martinelli's cider. At the moment, we're down to 3 bottles. Oh he also drinks beer like its water too, so that whole case is his. I don't drink beer.
*Random Note*If you ever are at a loss of what to buy Mike for a gift, you can never go wrong with sparkling cider (any kind, apple, grape, mixed berry, etc) or lobsters. Every time I ask him what he wants, he replies with "a hundred billion lobsters." I roll my eyes at him and then he says, "A hundred billion dollars." So trust me, sparkling cider works well for him.
Mmmmm.....crab cakes, my seafood weakness. These were actually pretty good. Better than crab cakes sold in restaurants in Champaign (since most of them make crab cakes from canned crab meat).
Mike's lobster tails. He's lucky I'm not a fan of lobsters. Yeah, my mom said my sister and I are cheap dates since we're not big fans of lobster, shrimp, and crab. We'll eat those crustaceans, but we're not big fans of them.
Fresh mozzarella and goat cheese.

We will post pictures of our dinner later on. But here's a funny story to tide you over...today we decided to go into my lab to get some work done and then end the day with working out at the gym. Mike forgets his running shoes at home, so he goes home in the afternoon to get his shoes. He spends a couple of hours at home, then walks to the gym. I receive a phone call from him saying that he walked to the gym and then realized that he forgot his running shoes again. I guess he's getting his workout in by walking up back and forth from the slippery icy sidewalks.

I resisted and did not go "after-Christmas" shopping. I was like a "real person" who actually went into work instead of had the day off.

I was able to resist after Christmas shopping too, unless you count the supermarket. :)

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you too!
Lori-I do not feel too bad missing after Christmas shopping this year (although I might go to the mall today). my sister called me and said that the sales at Ala Moana were not that great.

Yay Sam's! I always get the mozzarella and goat cheese when I go there. Happy New Year!
