It was so good to spend time with my sis and her husband this past week, they are the kind of couple who is always up for anything!! We spent christmas eve morning at Watercourse, a vegan place in uptown Denver. Decorated with one of a kind art pieces it quickly became one of my favorite places. I had the blackened tofu, and my sis had the breakfast sandwich, the bread was amazing. Overall I spent three days in the city and four days in the mountains. Pretty sweet vacation.

This month's flying by and I'm getting more into the Christmas spirit everyday. Eager to begin decorating, I got up early this morning and made a trip to Home Depot, to pick up three variations of succulents: Propagate, Flowering, and Aloe. I bought the wreath and floral wiring at Michael's and used wire cutters from my dad's toolbox. It took me about 15 minutes to remove the succulents from their containers, and another 15-30 minutes to completely arrange and fascine the plants. This project went better than expected and the arrangment lasted clear to New Years.

I mixed cake batter with vanilla frosting to make cake balls :) After I let them cool I dipped them in red chocolate and added white polka dots with candy frosting for bandanas. Quick Tip: Melt the chocolate at 50% strength in the microwave and add vegetable oil for a better consistency.

I have wanted to blog for awhile so I'm actually blogging a couple of things from summer. This past August I went to the six-man tournament with some friends in LA. Although I've lived in Southern California most of my life this was my first time experiencing the Six Man.The costumes were thoughtful and creative, it was fun to see everyone dressed up having a good time. There was plently of partying and beer to keep our group entertained throughout the weekend. While I was there I learned that the tournament is in jeopardy of being shut down completely, hopefully this doesn't happen, it's definitely a fun time. Looking forward to going again next year.
