Time Between Christmas and New Year's Day

 Hello Friends,

I hope you are doing well. Today is two days after Christmas Day. It was such a nice holiday these past few days and I really enjoyed having today off work for Christmas Day Observed to do a few things around the house. Mostly to relax, look at my gifts, and to start thinking a bit about New Year goals. It is Monday and doesn't feel at all like a Monday and now we are in the time between Christmas and New Year's Day when I have no idea what day it is and what to do with myself. Like the meme below states so well.

I never shared the French toast casserole from All Recipes and how it looks and turned out. I had a piece yesterday morning and it was so good the next day as well. I had it with some fruit and it was so delicious. We enjoyed it on Christmas day for brunch when my mother-in-law came over.

I was catching up on some vlogmas vlogs on YouTube this morning while I ate and Millie was also keeping me company. I watched a video from Milk and Honey life today. Charlotte has such nice vlogs and I love watching her vlogmas this year and her vlogs all year round are so good. She always goes the extra mile to make Christmas special for  her husband, dogs, and also her viewers. It is always a treat to watch her videos especially at Christmas.

I got some wonderful gifts for Christmas. I got the book I asked for called Malibu Rising, a Happy Planner for 2022 and planner stickers, cookie mix and accessories, cookies, chocolate and jam, I got an ornament for Millie's first Christmas from my dad. I got some lovely sweaters from my mom. I wore one yesterday as it was perfect green for the holidays. 

I got this black sweater from Joe Fresh with pearl type buttons and another green sweater from GAP from my mom. I got the Roots sweatpants below from Liam and AirPods from Liam. I can't wait to wear these clothes and try out the Airpods while out for walks or exercising. 

My sister got me this necklace from GIGIMEY on Etsy. I love their necklaces. She asked for the infinity on the front and our wedding date on the back, I can't wait to wear it!

My sister dried some of my wedding flowers for me as a gift. It is so nice of her and really nice to have them now as décor for our home. She also gifted me the beautiful round vase in the second photo.

My mom gave me the Happy Planner for 2022 and I am so excited to get started writing in it starting this week. I plan out the week leading up to New Year in my new planners each year. I will be sharing my spread on Wednesday. 

I got a puzzle that I started today from my sister, she got it from Indigo. It was a bit tough to do the puzzle at times with Millie trying to eat the pieces. I was also gifted a puzzle roll up mat from my sister, so I rolled my puzzle progress up when I was done for today so Millie can't eat the pieces while I am away. 

I had a nice view to still admire my Christmas tree that we still have up and didn't rush to take down yet! Millie hasn't been bothering with it since Christmas I guess she knows its over haha

Yesterday we went to my mother-in-law's condo for Christmas lunch. It was nice to see Liam's family and exchange gifts and have lunch together. I was gifted a Michael's gift card from my mother-in-law, I am sure I will find lots there! I also got the slippers below that are so comfortable from La Vie en Rose. 

It was such a lovely day today to sleep in and feel so rested all day. I enjoyed staying in and watching the snow fall outside the window. I had turkey and side leftovers from Christmas dinner for lunch, I did some work on my budget for end of the year. I wrote this blog post, and reflected on the holidays. Tomorrow I will be back at work for boxing day. I am feeling more refreshed now. It will be good getting back into my work routine rested and feeling happy from the holidays. I hope that you also enjoyed the holidays and time away from work or your obligations for a bit. This week I will be preparing for the New Year and will share some posts leading up to 2022!

Have a great day!
