Merry Christmas Eve, blog friends! 😀 I’m so excited that Christmas is just about here! What are your plans for Christmas Eve?

So, I have to start off this morning’s post with a little apology. I’ve been slacking on my blogger responsibilities for some time now, specifically skipping meals (well, eating them, but not posting about them) and I want to change that.

Last night, I had a talk with Kath via gchat, who basically gave me a blogging pep talk. Sometimes you need a friend to give it to you straight and it’s exactly what I needed. Our chat definitely gave me some new-found blogging enthusiasm, so, from now on, my dear readers, you will see a lot more from Carrots ‘N’ Cake! 😉

Christmas at the In-Laws

When Mal and I visit our hometown, we always stay with his parents. They live in a 4-bedroom house on a huge plot of land with lots of trees, horses, and a barn with a hay loft. There’s even a tractor parked next to it. 😉

We affectionally call my in-law’s home “Funny Farm.” It’s the place where all of our friends hang out when they are home for the holidays, and growing up, Mal and his sister always had something fun happening here. Mal says it was a great place to grown up.

Murphy likes Funny Farm, too. There’s a lot of space to run around and, oh, so many new smells!

Mal’s step-mom goes all out with the holiday decorating. I love it! I want my home to look as festive as this some day!

Breakfast

After sleeping in a little, Mal, Murphy, and I took a ride in the new car to Starbucks.

Murph was psyched to ride in Dad’s new car for the very first time.

Good thing the interior is “fawn” colored. Murph’s fur blends right in! (Pugs shed a lot!!!)

We we returned home, Mal cooked us breakfast while I got a head start on this post.

He made us the most delicious sweet-savory egg sandwiches.

On a toasted cinnamon raisin English muffin, Mal added Chipotle Cheddar Cheese and a fried egg.

Omg. It was out of this world! :mrgreen:

I’m spending the next hour or so making some overdue improvements to my blog and perhaps doing some book writing. (I already added a Wedding page to CNC.)

I’ll also be sipping my grande soy misto. I <3 Starbucks. 😀
