Holiday recap: Food and holiday fur nephew

Hello everyone, I hope you had a great holiday weekend!

While thinking about this post, I swore that I would not make it all about my fur nephew, who I got to spend 4.25 glorious days with at my bro and SIL’s house, but seriously, I cannot promise that because he is the cutest-thing-in-the-entire-world-and-oh-my-gosh-I-love-him-so-much-more-now.

I may or may not have teared up when I got his Christmas card (written in his voice through my SIL.) Yes, a card from a dog made me tear up because it was so cute. Here’s what it said,

“Aunt Jess, I’m so happy to have you staying with me for these days. I have love checks for cashing and cuddling and making out to do. Love, your fur nephew, Steve.” (apparently he’s a reader of this blog!)

And now it’s time for some holiday fur love!

I promise to stop talking about him after this but the CUTEST thing he did this weekend (which is tough to narrow down), was Saturday night before bed, when I happened to open the door and see him standing outside of it. Once it was open enough, he walked in, sat down and licked my face when I leaned in to give him a few scratches. After the kisses, he walked out and went back in to my bro’s room. He just came over to give me kisses. OMG I COULD NOT HANDLE THE CUTENESS.

I may have also teared up when I got home to my own puppy-less apartment because I missed him (and my bro and SIL). Ugh, my heart strings are being pulled!

While I was not gushing on my fur nephew, I was also stuffing my face with delicious holiday treats. Yes, I just blogged about losing 12 pounds and then stuffed my face. But I had good reason, one being that my SIL made cake balls (similar to Bakerella’s infamous cake pops).

We had a mix of chocolate and funfetti with melted dark/white chocolate. Seriously, they made for an amazing breakfast, lunch and dinner. And then an unamazing tummy ache. Back to the gym I go!

How was your holiday weekend?

Movie review: I have one more to post this week! 127 Hours with hottie James Franco.

    I want a dachshund so bad, but we already have two huskies and it just isn’t workable right now. So I am saving my money and waiting until the day when I can have one.

  2. Steph says:

    Just saw your post. Cake Pops pretty much made my entire NYE (and following few days)!

    No one understands love for animals like pet owners (or pet aunts). I have a little bunny who I love so much that I think my life may depend on hers. Your fur nephew is adorable.

    It took me a bit to figure out what SIL meant, but then I re-read the post and got it. I feel smart! Glad you had a good holiday time!

  5. Allison says:

    it’s all about the cake balls. I’m seeing them everywhere

    I think Steve and Mia should go on a doggy date….they’d make a cute couple! :)

  7. Stephany says:

    Dachshunds are the best with giving kisses! I get a make-out session every time I come home from my dog. ;) Steve is adorable!

  8. Amber says:

    I love fur babies… i talk about mine all the time, so I don’t mind hearing about your super cute fur nephew!

  9. adorable! the pet card is the cutest thing ever! and those cake balls in funfetti. omg i need to make some of those! sounds like a great christmas :)

  10. Ok, how have I never had cake on a stick before?

    Pet Christmas cards are such a good idea. I might need to do that, except that I don’t even send cards from myself. BUT STILL!

    Sounds like a wonderful holiday! Steve is such a cute little guy! I’ve never had cake pops but I keep hearing about their goodness. I may have to try them one of these days.
