Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

It's 1:43am and I'm still wide awake. I shouldn't have taken that nap..

Christmas was good. Santa Eric got me a sewing machine. Yes, that's what I really wanted and no I don't know how to use it. I'm going to sign up sewing 101 soon. I got Eric a Redskin jersey. He was extremely thrilled about it but too bad their season is over today.

So 2009, what are your New Year's Resolutions? Mine are simple, just taking better care of my health in general. Exercise more often and eat healthier. haha sound pretty cliché huh?

Merry (belated) Christmas & Happy New Year!!!

Already December!

Thanksgiving was nice. I made my first turkey. It was cooked! I stuffed it with sticky rice (w/ Chinese Sausage, Mushrooms, Dried Scallops, Dried Shrimps and Roasted Chestnuts) and baked it in a bag. I also baked two pumpkin pies - first time also. My in-laws made the rest of the side dishes. This year I didn't get up for Black Friday shopping at all - shock shock!!! I slept until 9am and it was nice!

I've spent most of the day Saturday decorating the Christmas tree. Yep it's artificial tree but smelling good, thanks to YANKEE plug-in :) Just a few more people to shop for then I am DONE! Yes, most presents are wrapped under the tree as well.
