Christmas Dinner

27 Dec

This morning, I woke up at 6, glazed the ham, even touched the pineapples (ick!)  to put on the top, and then stuck it in the roaster pan. It was way less difficult than I thought it was going to be.  Then I went back to bed for 2 more hours. When I woke up again at 9, I got right to work on the green bean casserole. Now, this is not just any nasty mushroom soup casserole, cause those things are gross. This one is like sour cream and cheesy goodness. I also made cornbread muffins, and they stuck at the bottom of the tin and I almost had a meltdown, but I managed not to haha. I also managed to burn myself non the boiling water when I boiled the potatoes, which was. . . Nice. Then the ham was ready. My mom carved up the ham and it was delish! I feel super dooper accomplished.


10+ Things you Might not Know About Me

2 Dec
  1. My favorite musical of all time is Rent. A distant second is Wicked, but Rent wins by a long shot. I actually don’t like to watch the movie with my friends because it’s extremely stressful for me since I’m afraid they won’t like it.
  2. I can’t stand it when people say “anyways.” OMG it’s NOT A WORD! it should be “anyway.” It just drives me crazy!
  3. I don’t really like wearing pants. I would rather be wearing a dress anytime. Like I don’t care if it’s 26 degrees out, I’ll probably be wearing a dress. Don’t ask why I don’t like pants, I just don’t.
  4. My very best friend in the whole wide world and I have been friends for almost 10 years. It started in 1st grade when we had matching shoes. We still do, actually.
  5. Even though I am probably one of the loudest people you’ll ever meet, I honestly don’t like being in super loud situations. They make me feel uncomfortable.
  6. I am one of the most competitive people you will ever meet. I really can’t stand losing. At all. Like if you’ve done it twice, I’ve done it three times. Or I’ve done something better than that twice. You know?
  7. I would someday like to play Mimi in a Broadway production of RENT. She is my favorite character in the show.
  8. I once performed on the stage at the 5th Avenue theater, one of the professional theaters in Seattle, in a number from a musical I was in, The Wiz.  It was one of the most amazing moments of my life.
  9. The book “The Reader” totally changed the way I look at my life. It is in my top 3 favorite books of all time.  I used to see things in a completely black/white, right/wrong, kind of way. Now I realize that there are a lot of grey areas in life that you can’t really categorize.
  10. I am always freezing. Always. It can be 80 degrees out and I will be wearing a jacket, so I really hate how cold it gets in Seattle in the wintertime, so I can’t imagine moving anywhere colder!
