Real vs Fake

November 26, 2013

This post is prob not about what you were thinking... Real vs. Fake. Hehe. I'm talking Christmas trees, get your mind out of the gutter!

So I've had a fake tree for most of my life due to the fact that my family would head to the Bay Area shortly after Christmas and my parents were worried about all of the normal "tree" concerns, fires, etc. So I was so used to having a fake tree that I just carried this tradition on in my adult life. I mean it's really nice to not have to vacuum up pine needles, water the thing, and to have a tree already lit and just in the garage. 

Now that Tbone is part of our family and we are spending out first Christmas together... He thinks I am a horrible mother we should have a real tree (He is appalled that I have raised my children with a fake tree). 

A real tree always sounds so nice but then when you think about it... You have to find just the right tree, fight a billion people for said tree, keep it alive, string your own lights, blah blah blah. Maybe I'm just a brat stubborn and set in my ways, but a fake tree sounds so much more appealing. I mean, they are perfect! But Tbone does have a point. He wants to start a tradition by taking the kids to pick out a tree, and all that stuff. Ughhhhhh! 

What do you guys think? Real? Fake? What is your reasoning? 

Who do you think will win our little tree battle? Stay tuned to see. 

Pretty sure I will own this one day!!!!

Pinterest Recipes

November 25, 2013

So the past week and a half, I've been trying out new recipes from Pinterest. The weather has been chilly and I was looking for some nice warm cozy comfort food that would be easy since we have soccer 2-3 times a week (during dinner time).

Here are the recipes that I tried...

Healthy "Fried" Brussels Sprouts

These turned out pretty good. Not really crunchy but pretty good. 

Now this was a huuuuge hit with everyone!!!! Kids even wanted seconds!!!! Def check this one out! 

This was another hit!!!! Kids loved it, and it really good as a leftover!!!! 

The last that I tried from Pinterest was this yummy Chicken Tortilla Stack

This was ah-mazing!!!! I wish I had used larger tortillas but other than that.... Perfect!!!! And again, a huge hit!

I am so pleased that everything we tried, everyone liked!!! How often does that happen? Thank you Pinterest, you wonderful invention you!
