Today I spent the afternoon hanging out with my cousin Lauren, her hubby Matt and her little man Sean and helped her to prepare for tonight's New Years Eve celebration. I have been celebrating New Years with Lauren for as long as I can remember! We've had some wild times, but as we get older, the parties get tamer and tamer. Most everyone is married now and starting families. How did we get here??
As usual, I've prepared a couple of things to bring to the party that I will be able to enjoy. There is at least one other gluten & dairy free person coming so it's nice to know I won't be the only one! I already stocked Lauren's fridge with my Redbridge. I've made a gluten and dairy free taco dip and King Arthur brownies. I'll be sure to post about those sometime next week. I'll be curious to see what everyone thinks about the dip, it was an experiment for me and I'm not sure what I think of it myself.
I'm also packing on the pounds this weekend before we start our Biggest Loser challenge at work on Monday! I'm really not doing myself any favors, just making myself feel like crap with all the sugar. I never buy Kinnikinnick donuts or Udi's muffins but I just felt compelled to do so this weekend since the challenge is starting.
Tonight will be a fun night and tomorrow starts a new year, a new decade and for me, it's kind of the start of a new chapter in my life. I'm really excited for it!!
Have a save, happy and gluten free New Year my friends!!!!
