Holiday Fun

Yes, I am aware that it is January, and the holidays are close to being long gone, but being that I work at a nice restaurant, December was our BUSY (to say the least) month where a lot of people have their holiday parties and get togethers.  So Pornkin (what we call our holiday party- its a combination of Pumpkin and corn…didja get that??? Ingenious if you ask me…) fell by the way side, and we thought January 28 sounded MUCH better.  It basically consists of everyone brining a different dish, and we eat and get prizes and go home full. 

I brought my award winning* Chess Cake:


1 stick butter, melted

1 egg

1 box yellow cake mix

Mix these three ingredients togther with an electric mixer, until combined, and spread in the bottom of a 9×13 pan.


3 eggs

1 bag (8 oz) confectioners sugar

8 oz cream cheese, softened (leave out for 1-2 hours room temp)

Blend these three items together until smooth, and pour over the crust. 

Bake at a lovely 350 degrees for about 40 minutes, or until sides are just beginning to turn brown and pull away from the edge. 

And enjoy a slice of heaven in your mouth!!  I have yet to meet anyone that eats this and does not like it.

Anyway, in the spirit of Thanksgiving and Christmas, I wore fall colors- burnt orange and yellow:


The necklace is courtesy of Goodwill, $2.99.

My coworker and friend, the lovely Danielle. 

This is the only pic I snapped.  But it is appropriate becuase people mix us up all the time.  We’re both blonde and have awesome personalities, so I get it:)  Even the guy I’m dating, who also works with us (I guess I never got the memo to not mix business with pleasure) mixes us up sometimes, and will start conversations with her before realizing its not me…

Well this girl needs to sleep, I ran 5.2 miles today and 3.7 yesterday, and I’d like to rest.  I’m still talking myself into the full marathon instead of the half in April.

“Halves are for lamos!!!!”

Nope…I’ll have to try harder than that.

Maybe the endorphins will talk me into it, they are quite friendly you know:)


Did you have any cool Christmas work parties?  Did you wear any Goodwill items to any important events?

What is your favorite dessert to make?
