Find the JOY in all things this year!

Happy New Year everyone 🙂 Trust you all have a wonderful day with your family and friends. We had a nice quiet evening together as a family. Up until the fireworks started going off which sent our dogs into a tizzy!

Yep, we even have to mute that commercial from CSX for the same reasons 🙂 Thankfully around 10:30pm Dad cranked up some Pandora radio tunes to drown it out! But I’ll back it up to how we started our day…can’t start the eve of a new year without some grub, right?!

December 31st–Breakfast–

Ham and Egg Breakfast Burritos

2 low carb high fiber tortillas

2 eggs, scrambled

leftover holiday ham, chopped

shredded cheddar cheese

favorite salsa

Chop up some leftover ham, enough for a handful. Cook in a skillet, no oil or extra fat needed. Cook till warmed through, set aside in a bowl. Next, whisk two eggs together and scramble in a buttered skillet until it’s reached a desired doneness.

Sprinkle cheese on two tortillas, divide scrambled eggs, top with ham and salsa. Fold and enjoy!

A yummy and very filling way to start any morning, but especially great when you’re sharing it with your loved ones! You can use any breakfast meat and tortillas.

With a pleasantly full tummy, I decided to try out one of my Christmas gifts: a knifty knitter loom. I’m a huge fan of finger knitting and I’ve had the knifty knitter on my Amazon wishlist for quite some time now and it was a huge surprise Christmas morning, totally unexpected (guess my Mom had a little fun going through my wish listsssss…ok she didn’t have THAT much fun because I broke everything down into 25 lists. Alright she was overwhelmed lol…moving on). I won’t lie, I was a bit nervous to start it out but I took the bull by the horns, er rather the round loom by the pegs, and made my first hat!!

Granted the finished product would probably fit an infant, but I was beyond giddy that I actually did it! I made a hat! It was easy, went quickly, and I’m at it again only I intend for this next one to fit me 🙂

Yarn that I’m currently using is a super bulky(6) and is uber soft! Meant to be used for baby blankets but I’m a glutton for soft things. This is where I left off for tonight, I’m psyched about the finished product 🙂

Thus far the new year has been productive, fun, and a great start. Looking forward to what lies ahead!
