There’s no place like home for the holidays…

That’s right, folks! I’ve made it home for winter break! What a great day.

Started off my morning SUPER early at 6:15 because I couldn’t sleep. I guess I was really excited about going home! I took a shower and took some of my stuff out to my car before breakfast.

It was good. At 8 a.m. I had to report downstairs to do some last-minute Res Life things, and then I was off! My drive took about an hour and 40 minutes with only one mild trafficky spot because of an accident. And then I was HOME!

I did a whole lot of nothing today. I made lunch in a kitchen for the first time since Thanksgiving and it was awesome.

spinachThen sautéed some baby spinach with garlic.

I added the cherry tomatos and cooked them down a bit.

I then put the spinach, tomatos and bacon into a ramekin and cracked two eggs into it. Poked both of the yolks and topped it with some parmesen cheese before putting it into a 450 degree oven for 10 minutes.

After lunch, I spent most of the afternoon watching my dad and brother fight with the Christmas trees. The lights weren’t working, of course, so it was an ordeal. Finally we got all of the inside decorations up!

Dinner was going to be some tomato soup, but I discovered we didn’t have an onion so that plan was quickly scratched in favor of Crazy Bowls and Wraps! I love this place. It’s healthy fast food and doesn’t get much better.

Tonight I am going to do nothing but soak in the Christmas decorations and be thankful I am home with my family safe and sound. Maybe I’ll get some dessert too. Here are some of my favorite Christmas decorations at our house:
