twenty eleven.

I didn't actually make it to the end of 2010... nor did I yell, "Happy New Year!" as the clock struck midnight.  Nope.  Lee and I were tucked into bed by 11:10 p.m. and were fast asleep as 2011 began.  Oh well.  There's always next year.  Or the year after that. 

Lee made an awesome dinner last night.  Like 5-star restaurant dinner.  No joke.  The stout sauce was out-of-this-world... I could have eaten it by the spoonful (and I just may have).  So good.  Kudos to the chef!

We've been holding on to this special bottle of wine for over 2 years now.  It is a 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon from Alpha Omega and it is signed by the wine maker.  We served this wine at our wedding.  And we're part of their wine club.  We're geeks like that.  Just like the stout sauce, the wine was out-of-this-world, too.  We drank every last drop.  It was the perfect wine to celebrate the last day of 2010.

For breakfast, Lee spoiled me again and made eggs benedict... that hollandaise sauce was the bomb. But it's no surprise that it tasted like heaven as it's made out of egg yolk, butter (a lot of it), and lemon juice.  Scrum-diddly-umptious.

To make a dent in the calories we consumed, Lee and I did a run in a van down by the river.  It was GORGEOUS today... like 50-degrees-so-I'm-running-in-a-t-shirt weather.  It's a cruel, cruel joke that Mother Nature is playing on me as I'm sure it'll be back to sub-freezing temps in no time.  Who else is ready for Spring?

Garmin stats: 7 miles/57 minutes. Wet & sloppy from the snow melt but WARM so I'll take it!


  1. So glad you are okay with me reading your blog. Love it. :) Funny that you thought I was your sister. Your steak looks yummy and I'm not even a big steak eater. :) Glad you had a good run...I remember the Van down by the river...were you referring to the Saturday Night Live Skit? If not, then I just made myself sound old and nevermind. :) Happy New Year Briana!

  2. Yep! You got the reference! Whenever I say I'm going for a run down by the Charles river here in Boston, I think of Chris Farley and the SNL skit. And you're not old. :-)
