Weekend Wrap-up - toeless pantyhose do exist!

Posted by Ethne~

Hey everyone!  Last two days of the year, I can hardly believe it!  

I'm working on a couple foodie posts for you, but the family are testing them out first, to see if they're good enough to post about.  Teaser: homemade almond milk (and possibilities from the almond pulp) and creme brûlée (with my new torch I got for Christmas).  I'll also give you an update about our gluten-free adventure once we get into the new year - we're still sticking with it.  [They have siphoned off several recipes I could've posted about as not good enough - and this is the recipe's fault, not mine.]

I met up with bff's Steph and Grizz this weekend.  It was so great to see them.  I'm fairly certain I took no pictures, seeing as my yap was too busy flappin'.  Darn.  But we had a good time, ate some really good food (Ciao Bella in Edina, MN) and decidedly did not solve any great problems.  But, we did evaluate whether I could find toeless pantyhose (which I know exist) to wear to Shaun's brother's wedding next weekend (I'm wearing peeptoe shoes in January, I know, I'm silly - Shaun belabored this point until I suggested that I could alternately just go out and buy another pair of shoes, just for the wedding).  My Dad said, "no luck", but we felt I had a shot at Macy's or Nordstrom's.  I was nearest to Macy's so I went there first and, wouldn't you know, but they had some: Hanes [also found online apparently].

I talked to Lori and Steve.  They're back from their cruise and a great time was reportedly had by all.  I am still unconvinced to come on a cruising vacay with them anytime soon (ocean deep water + Ethne = NO) and, quite frankly, very relieved to have my beloved Lori back on dry land.  She'll tell us all some tales with pics this week, she said.

I'm debating what to do for New Year's dinner (along with the creme brûlées).  The girls think that any of these meals are "feasts" now, so I don't want to let them down - but I'm really hankering for tamales - and I know several friends who have tamales at New Year's.  I even have a from-scratch recipe (thanks D&F).  So that's what I'm leaning towards, even if it doesn't exactly jive with my dessert choice.  Heh, it's me, I make up my own rules.  Shaun doesn't even question this.  Why am I?

We take the girls to the dentist tomorrow and Easy Mac has her first loose tooth hanging by a thread.  I'd be surprised if it lasts till the appointment tomorrow, but honestly, I kinda love the timing.  It does mean I have to sew the head back onto her tooth fairy STAT though.

And we are anxiously awaiting the family wedding on Saturday.  I just have to get tights for the girls and pantyhose for myself for the groom's dinner and we are SET.  I'm pretty excited.  I've been to far more summer weddings (mine included), but I have to say that the January weddings I've been to have been awesome.  It really is a great time of year to get married.  Shaun's brother and his fiancee are very stylish, so I'm sure there will be lots for me to report back about.  I'm bringing the good camera, dudes.

Have a great Monday!
