Turkey at Muir Woods

Bye November & Thanksgiving Photo Diary

Hello everyone! This is going to be a very short update because somehow, someway in between all my studying and Thanksgiving prepping I found the time to contract the flu. Yes so until I’m well enough to do anything other than lay in bed and surf the internet please enjoy some pictures from my Thanksgiving week!


Reveling in the glorious results of my Thanksgiving cook-a-thon

I hope everyone is having a happy and healthy start to the holiday season!


Happy Holidays

Well now, it has been some time since I’ve been on here hasn’t it!? To be honest, I’ve felt as if I haven’t had time for anything since starting my new job. I’m not sure what it is about entering new work places, but I always feel as if I’m stretched so emotionally thin at the beginning. Seriously, for the past two months I’ve been coming home wiped out and wanting to do nothing, but relax with a bath. Does this happen to anyone else? Anyway, I’ve (finally) begun emerging from my new work funk and have started to act more like myself. Which basically means I’ve been getting back to the gym, cooking, reading, and blogging. Hell I even did a quick sketch the other day because I felt the urge to bust into my art supplies! So huzzah to not being bummed out anymore! \(^u^)/

To celebrate I have a few Thanksgiving and Christmas pictures for you. So get excited to see the first turkey I’ve ever attempted to make! Not going to lie I gave myself many pats on the back for not failing entirely. The browning came out a bit odd, but I’m blaming that on the fact that it was a turkey breast as opposed to a whole bird (I feel like that might have been part of the reason for the weird shrinking going on in the skin department). Our spread consisted of turkey, potato casserole, roasted vegetables, roasted sweet potatoes, dirty rice, corn bread, apple pie, and blueberry muffins. For three people. Luckily our friend Jeremy came from Ohio the day after Thanksgiving so we had no problems getting through the mass amount of leftovers! The apartment has minimal Christmas decorations because we’ll be spending the holiday in Ohio. Also, Eric would probably have had an aneurysm if I’d over stuffed the place with Christmas cheer (Scrooge).
