A little vacation recap

We had a busy time of it, rushing here and there to dine with friends and family, shopping for the feast of three kings gifts and sleeping in separate beds - a treat we both enjoy. We slept as stones. The hotel was a Wyndham and upon arriving to our room, I discovered a terrible, terrible error on the room service breakfast door flyer.

I circled it, wrote "yum" and then left it face up on the bedside table each day. Each day the housekeeper returned it face down on my pillow. I imagine the next guests in that room will have a good laugh.

The lunches out were fun, celebrating mom's 60th and dining in downtown LA with Donna. Dinners out were also fun. We ate way too much mexican food (my innards are no longer accustomed I'm afraid) with dad and grandma and had a lovely Italian dinner with the boys.

Friday we attended the annual decoration of gingerbread men party which is kind of like an art party where you can eat the art.

Saturday was the three kings celebration and we had a lovely, champagne inspired evening where we netted a bundle of cash (thanks again!), a Cuisinart ice cream maker and $50 itunes gift card.

Finally, a little video of Bob's dog, Nicki. She kept rubbing herself on the grass in a suggestive, well, just watch.



Apparently, I'm still on West coast time hence the tardy wake up time. I'll update you on the homefront tomorrow.

I can see you both had a good time. Nicki had a real good time. Bob and Serge should have imitated Nicki.
The pictures are great. Good Food, good friends, good times.

Sometimes, if I have been at the gym too long, I produce my own sweat cream.

Glad you had a good time.

Those gingerbread men look yummy! No such thing as too pretty to eat. ;)

GayProf, you have me really wishing we worked out at the same gym.

Sweet cream? Sounds delicious. I love anything sweet: BBQ sauce, pizza sauce, salsa, Chinese food, alcoholic beverages. Sweet-ass sweet.

Who doesn't like a little Sweat Cream every so often? Of course, not on my waffles ...
