In case you are wondering, no I am not in Brooklyn New York (ha), wouldn’t that be lovely? My title is from the movie Brooklyn which I saw a few weeks back with some wonderful company. Ian was dragged along of course, and he rolled his eyes every time we mentioned the movie, because it is a love/romance story that he thought was too girly for him, but later agreed it worth the time. I cried nearly the whole movie, so you know its an amazing love story haha. So I highly recommend it if you haven’t seen it, maybe a good movie to see with family or friends over the holidays.
Ok, in this post I will be mentioning a couple of my favorite things this season that I recommend you try if looking for things to do with others/for others.
- See a play; a charlie brown christmas play(good for kids too)// what a beautiful life// The nutcracker (I love the nutcracker!!)
- Make a meal for everyone; Cranberry and pomegranate bruschetta (I felt tears in my eyes after biting into this..you have to try this)// cranberry margaritas – you can make it non-alcoholic if you like// bacon wrapped brussels sprouts – perfect appetizer, literally took me 10 mins to prep and 30 mins in the oven..love it// potatoes – this are very good, everyone will like them// Eggnog French toast – even if you don’t like eggnog, this you will like.
- Go outdoors and do an activity – there are so many outdoor activities around the holidays, from shopping, snow sports (skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, or just walking) to just taking a stroll outside with after a big meal.
I hope you are all having a wonderful christmas eve, enjoy time off of work if you have it, and as always thanks for stopping by, I appreciate it.
