I CANNOT believe Christmas is over and tomorrow is already the last day of 2015. I know I’ve said this before, but this year has flown by! For me, it’s been a year of surprises many of which I will gladly leave behind. Speaking of surprises, Mom surprised us flying in Christmas night. She changed her plans so many times I didn’t think she would ever come. We ended up celebrating Christmas a little late, but were happy to see her and she made it just in time for the Packer-Cardinal game on Sunday.
I bought my Dad tickets for Christmas thinking it would be a fun family event. Boy was I wrong. Three men sitting behind us who were highly intoxicated tormented us the entire time. From the moment they arrived, they shook our seats, threw food/drinks on our seats when we were standing, screamed in our ears “LEAVE PACKERS.” Over and over again. Ugh…the screaming was the worst. Yes the Packers played horribly, but there was no excuse for how they treated us. By the third quarter, we had enough and left. They kept yelling at us even as we walked out. There are so many jerks in this world. What kind of people do that? I felt bad for my parents. They didn’t deserve that.
After that happened, it got me wondering something after reading the picture perfect holiday posts from other bloggers this week. I could have written this post proclaiming we had an amazing time at the game and subtly left out the fact that we were abused by Cardinal fans. So in a my Meganesk Carrie Bradshaw way I ask this. Are bloggers living the perfect lives they display or are bloggers faking it for the internet? Some food for thought….

Speaking of food, it’s Wednesday which means it’s all about the food. Today I’m sharing Christmas day eeeeeats. I made large meals over Christmas week which we’re still working our way through this week. Time off from the kitchen has been much appreciated! If you’re new to Skinny Fitalicious, What I Ate Wednesday is a post I do every week showcasing my meals from one day. It’s fun to see what other people eat in a day and also great motivation for me to eat balanced and create more delicious recipes for you!
Breakfast. Skinny gingerbread pancakes with blackberries and egg whites.
Lunch. No lunch. We ate an early dinner so I snacked my way through on creamy garlic hummus with veggies and crackers that I’ve been perfecting for you.
Dinner. Wild rice casserole, roasted garlic cauliflower mash, smoked turkey, brussels sprouts gratin, coconut biscuit (not pictured) and a butternut squash bake that was a spin on my low sugar sweet potato bake. Instead of sweet potatoes, I substituted a large butternut squash and swirled in one sweet potato. Pretty and delicious!
What was the best thing you ate on Christmas? Do you believe what you see on the internet is too perfect?
