It's the day after Christmas and a New Year is almost here!

Is it just me or does it already feel like 2008? Maybe it's because I've been writing that date a lot since I'm getting married in April 2008 or maybe it's because we've been having plenty of team meetings lately discussing where our company is heading in 2008...whatever it is I'm sure I won't have a lot of problems making the leap from '07 to ''s always a pain the first few weeks remembering to write the correct year on checks, etc!

I had a great Christmas. Did all the things one does on Christmas, spent A LOT of time with the fam, listened to Christmas carols, watched Christmas movies, baked breads, ate cookies, delivered gifts to family friends, etc. Alex got me FOUR Le Crueset pots that I have been obsessing over for the past few months. I'm proud of him also for not visiting Sur La Table (which is SOOO overpriced) but bargain shopping and finding them a lot cheaper and in the same condition at Marshalls:-)

I decided to work from home today and was really proud of myself with how productive and organized with the work flow...seriously! I don't do it often so why not every once in awhile! P.S. I'm a list maker and it's what helped get me through the day!

Alex and I saw Juno at the theatre two days before Christmas. I was really looking forward to seeing this movie and I am happy to say that I wasn't let down. It was really funny, sweet, and very touching. Since it doesn't take hardly anything at all to make me cry....cry I did. Alex noted that it was the most he's seen me cry in a movie. But no worries, they were happy tears....very happy!

I have a few New Years Resolutions that I'm excited to lay down for myself come the New Year but I'll dedicate a post to them as the 1st draws nearer!

Lastly, I can tell I made a lot of breads (my new thing) this past holiday as I just made my last loaf of banana walnut chocolate chip bread and didn't even have to glance at the recipe.....not even for measurements! yikes!

I'm glad to hear good things about Juno from you. I was tempted to see it, but wasn't sure if it was going to be too snarky and sarcastic. But now, I think I'll make the trek to zee theatre with the Eryn stamp o'approval!

I love banana chocolate chip bread! I love making BCCB bread! I would therefore, love to make BCCB con tu. Let's make it happen. Where the hell is that teleporter?
