Santa’s New Digs

by Meghann on December 10, 2011

Whoa! Santa’s Village got fancy!


This winter Santa is staying at his Ice Palace with his dear friend the Ice Princess. They were very busy today with tons of little boys and girls to see.


This was just a tiny part of the line that stretched clear across the mall to see Santa. A guard actually informed me it would be a TWO HOUR wait to see the man in red. WHAT?!?! TWO HOURS?!? There were dozens of families in the line holding children that ranged from tiny infants to wandering 10 year olds. Not one child was screaming or crying and everyone looked very patient and relaxed. Kudos to all of them. Serious kudos.

Me? I’m not that patient. Derek and I went to the mall hoping for a little inspiration for the last remaining family members on our christmas lists, but we got nada.


There was a lead or two in the parents’ department, but no purchases were made. Oh, well.

After a disappointing trip to the mall, we broke for lunch at Whole Foods and each had a slice of the Big Greek special of the week.


This pizza was insane. It was basically a greek salad on a pizza complete with dressing, olives, and creamy feta cheese. Even the crust was dusted with a greek infused seasoning and was so doughy and hot straight from the oven (we grabbed the first fresh slices from the pie.).


We eventually made it home where I had more luck online shopping than I did mall shopping. I’m really into personalized gifts this year and have had way too much fun on Etsy, Zazzle, and iPhoto. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Dinner was a big pot of split pea soup with sweet potato, ham, and walnuts.


Not sure why, but it was extra green tonight. Derek and I dined while watching cheesy christmas musics and finally getting around to wrapping some x-mas presents that Mr. UPS had dropped off this week.

For dessert I had a Chocolate VitaTop with pumpkin ice cream.


We may not have had much luck today, but our tree is still starting to fill out with presents.


Only 15 more days until Christmas!!


How is your holiday shopping going? Any luck?

Party with the Fishies

December 10, 2011

Last night Derek and I attended his company’s christmas party at The Florida Aquarium. It was a beautiful venue with lots of cool sights to see, good drinks to drinks, good food to eat, and a great band to dance the night away with. We had a blast! ๐Ÿ™‚ We were out late and crashed more ยป
