Weekly Recap In Photos

Hope everyone had a good first week of the new year!  We were busy getting back to the swing of things as my son had to go back to school.  I also finished my last week at my current job!

1.  Tuesday, January 3 - This is bad what I'm about to tell you...  A couple of years ago my mom gave me a Kitchen Aid stand mixer for my birthday.  I just got it out of the box this past Tuesday!  I know, I know...  The problem is, though I love to cook, I'm not much of a baker, so I rarely have a reason to use such an awesome kitchen appliance!  2.  Tuesday, January 3 - I finally broke out the stand mixer because it was my son's half birthday this week.  They let the kids with summer birthday's celebrate their half birthday so they can have a little party at school.  I made homemade chocolate chip cookies and they were so good.  I probably ate about 6 cookies worth of dough...  Oops!  3.  Wednesday, January 4 - Since the cookies turned out so well,  I got the mixer out again the next night!  4.  Wednesday, January 4 - I made Weight Watcher's Blueberry Streusel Muffins.  Man were they tasty, and at 6 points each, they were totally worth it.  Everyone in my family liked them. 

5.  Thursday, January 5 - I've been on a mostly healthy kick lately, (emphasis on the mostly of course).  On Thursday I made another Weight Watcher's recipe, artichoke quiche.  I really enjoyed this one, but then, I really like quiche and I love artichokes!  I didn't do a post for either recipe, but if anyone is interested, let me know in the comments and I can get you the recipe!  6.  Friday, January 6 - Friday was my last day at work.  I have been a Safety Director for over six years now.  A co-worker brought me these beautiful flowers!  I just loved the yellow, green, and orange colors, and they still look beautiful in my dining room today!  7.  Friday, January 6 - I waited till my last day to clean out my office.  That's six-plus years of stuff right there.  I actually thought it was going to be more!  Honestly, it's mostly nursing school stuff.  8.  Saturday, January 7 - With all the holiday hustle and bustle being on the weekends, we waited till this past weekend to have our get-together for Christmas with our friends.  This year we did a sleep over theme where we all wore our pajama's.  But in this picture, I am also wearing what I got for our Dirty Santa exchange - a tacky Christmas vest.  I told everyone we have to have a Christmas sweater party next year now - I'm all set!
