From Italy and Beyond!

Sunrise on my way to work

I may have taken a short little hiatus from blogging, but rest assured, I am back now! Nothing too exciting has happened since I returned from Italy. Jeff and I had our first Thanksgiving together that we cooked and it was so much fun. We cooked a delicious 11 pound turkey (we named him Norbert), and realized that cooking a turkey really isn't that difficult (despite what everyone else said). We ate with some wonderful friends that we have in the city and had a great time. And then it is onto Christmas! The house is already all decorated and has been for a few weeks already (another post to follow with all the decorations I have up) so that's been fun getting into the holiday spirit. Now I'm in Salt Lake spending time with my parents and then it's off to Vegas for Jeff's birthday weekend! All in all, a pretty great November (another year already gone), and looking forward to an even more exciting December!

C'e' il caso che ho fatto un po' di pausa dal blog. Pero', adesso ci sono! Niente di bello e' successo da quando sono tornata dal'italia. Io e Jeff abbiamo celebrato il nostro primo Thanksgiving da soli e abbiamo fatto un tacchino enorme che e' venuto buonissimo! Abbiamo fatto una cena con dei amici e ci siamo divertiti tantissimo! Adesso e' ora di preparare per Natale! Ho le canzoni di Natale sia in inglese che in italiano e sono gia' un paio di settimane che le ascolto! La casa e' gia' (quasi) tutta decorata per Natale e dopo faro un'altro post con le foto della casa! Adesso sono a Salt Lake con i miei e poi vado a Las Vegas per il compleanno di Jeff! E' stato un novembre molto bello e adesso a dicembre!

Out for a stroll
Thanksgiving 2010..........................................

Homemade pumpkin pie

Amazing Williams-Sonoma Apple Cider


Proud to say I cleaned the turkey all by myself

Ready to tan!

Jeff did a pretty amazing job cooking Norbert

Our feast!

All gone! But made some amazing turkey noodle soup with the leftovers

No trip to Salt Lake would be complete without some family pictures!

And the stockings were hung by the chimney with care...
