christmas in july



I have wanted to host a Christmas in July dinner for months now.  Something about the cold weather just reminds me of home and since I am officially obsessed with Christmas, it was just another excuse to eat stuffing and listen to Christmas carols. Suddenly it dawned on me that today was the last day of July so I was determined to put together some sort of family dinner in order to celebrate. Luckily, I was feeling better after sleeping for a ridiculous amount of time last night and pretty much back to my old self. Mid morning, I met up with my lovely friend Alexia, whose adorable baby bump is now on full display, for a walk and bit of sunshine before picking up some groceries. I didn't have the energy to do a proper Christmas feast, so I focused my energy on the best parts - the side dishes.  I love the side dishes. Anyways the rest of the afternoon was spent packing for my trip and resting up for the week ahead.  Dinner was delicious, complete carb overload topped off with a lemon tart.  Now I'm going to finish watching The Devil Wears Prada (don't judge me, I love this movie) and catch up on some more sleep...
