This Christmas

Christmas has finally come and gone. I say this every year and I'll say it again.. I love love love Christmas.. but I never seem to get to enjoy it. Its always such a stressful time for me at work ; I always find myself scrambling to get presents bought and wrapped, Desserts made, and stressing over having an outfit to wear to church. So this Christmas I went home on Christmas Eve to go to mass with the family. We then feasted on the usual Amanda favorites , hoagies and hotwings. YUM!! Followed by Its A Wonderful Life.

Christmas morning we all woke up to open presents.. I got a LOT of lovely gifts, shoes, a beautiful mirror, clothes, new DVD player, movies, jewelery and PENS TICKETS:) We ate a lovely meal and watched Beckham play with all his toys. Its was a nice holiday.

And now its back to work.. only 342 days until next Christmas.. maybe I should start my shopping now so I'm more prepared.

where i've been

Today is the first day I have had off work since my last post. Work is insane and the 70+ hour work weeks are taking their toll on me. So here is what has been going on with me at work.. Cookies, Brownies, Bread Puddings, Petit fours, ice creams, banana's foster, Chocolate Mousse Cakes, Pumpkin Pie, Apple Frangipan Tarts, Creme Brulee.. the list goes on. I have not had any time to enjoy my favorite season yet. All I want to do is curl up on my couch, stare at my lovely Christmas tree while It's A Wonderful Life plays on the tv in the background. But alas I have one more stressful week of work left, and this year I am actually getting Christmas Eve off. Hooray! So I have 10 days left to get my presents bought and wrapped, I wish I had more time. Tis the season:)

I love Christmas music... pa rump a pum pum!!

Its the first of December and I am already feeling the Christmas work load. Today I started production of Yule Logs, Christmas Cookies and Peppermint Mousse Cakes. We have at least 4 holiday parties a day and it's going to be a busy month. I am pretty sure that the two days of Christmas music I had on the radio at work was enough for most of the people I work with, but I loved it and I wanted more. Unfortunately I have been limited to only one hour of Holiday tunes a day (it was put to a vote in the kitchen, petitions were made..yadda yadda yadda). So what are some of your favorite holiday tunes? Here is a fun light hearted xmas song to start of the month with... Dominick the Italian Donkey.
