Monopoly

23 Dec

Yesterday was a CRAZY day!  I woke up, had a great strength workout, went into work for a bit, came home and scrubbed down the house (it took hours), then put my brave face on and went to Costco, the organic grocery store and Safeway (for vino).  When I got home, I noticed our New Year’s cards had come in the mail so while the Husband played PS3, I labeled, addressed and sealed our holiday cards.  BTW- I can’t wait to post what they look like on here next week.  They are the coolest holiday cards ever! 

We found this fun deal at Costco.  I love Baileys and Hot Coco or Coffee on Christmas morning.  It came with two cute mugs as well!

I had to cover them up with the envelopes

Next up was Monopoly.  I hadn’t played this game in years.  In fact I didn’t even know we owned it.  We played one game (I lost) and I had so much fun.  I can’t wait to play again today!

We forgot how to play and actually had to read the directions.  I also enjoyed a glass of red wine with the game!

Notice how broke I was?  I owed the H 700+ and only had about 22 bucks left so I had to go bankrupt.

After the game, we enjoyed cheese and crackers for dinner to complement our wine.  We barely put a dent in all the cheese.  We thought it was an okay dinner, we wished we would have bought a few other things to go with the meal.  You only can eat a certain number of cheese and crackers before you are craving something else.

The baked Brie was our favorite

We liked the wheat crackers the best!

Needless to say, we have a lot of leftover cheese to somehow use up.

Question:  What is your favorite type of cheese?

Question:  What is your favorite Holiday decoration to have out?

I love Christmas lights inside the house. It doesn’t matter what they are one, I just love how warm and cozy they make the house feel!
