Mom wanted us to decorate a gingerbread house together this year. I think it turned out pretty cute!
Do you see that box in the top right corner?
Those are Mary’s Gone Crackers. I can’t remember if I’ve written about them on the blog before or not. I got a few coupons for free boxes, and tried the Herb flavor first. To be honest, I’m not a fan of the flavor, but they are perfect for dipping into some Sabra hummus. I do love the texture and how crunchy they are, and am looking forward to trying the original flavor to see if I like them more.
They fueled us through the difficult task of decorating
Did you all snag a free product when Kath posted about her OpenSky deal a couple weeks ago? I was lucky enough to be able to order what I thought was just one jar of NuttZo butter, but I somehow ended up getting 4 shipped to me?! (Em, you’ll be getting one of these )
It is very crunchy, nutty (imagine that!), and has sort of a rustic flavor. It’s not something I’d say I love right away, but I do like it.
Saving the best for last, I really want to share this story with you. I’ve written about Stephanie Nielson on here before when she was on the Oprah Winfrey Show. A tear-jerking article was released this past Sunday about her story, and it is really so inspiring.
A little background on Stephanie—before her accident, she was a vegetarian (pretty sure she still is), yoga instructor (and she still practices), and just really focused on keeping her body healthy. I feel like the fact that she took such good care of her body is one reason she was able to survive a plane crash and having burns on over 80% of her body. She is such a testament to the old saying “take care of your body, and it will take care of you.”
The article is a little long, but it’s definitely worth the time it takes to read it. She’s such an inspiration to me that I couldn’t not share her story with others.
Time to get ready for a Christmas party with Morgan’s church. It’s being catered by one of my favorite Italian restaurants. Yum!
