Last year I decided to make the New Years Resolution to read 30 books in 2010. Well... I almost made it. 20 books were read by me this year and I am actually pretty proud of it. Technically this figure makes last year's figure a lot less impressive considering how crazy this year was compared to last year. Do you want to know what else is not impressive? The fact that Harry Potter both started and ended my year. Sometimes I am such a loser.
My brothers finally coerced me into going to a Raider Game the Sunday after Thanksgiving. I think you need to understand football to truly have a good time at one of these events. However - the leftover turkey sandwiches and zebra popcorn did wonders in boosting my morale.
It's important to look cute.... I don't think Anthony or my dad got the memo. Ok I take it back - dad's hat was cute :)
Me and the Edster
Moral of this story: Always bring food to a game, look cute, and try to learn the rules before purchasing a ticket to said game.
This year I had to use my new oven that cooks things a bit differently than a "completely functioning oven" so I didn't cook them long enough. Turns out that pies that aren't cooked long enough tend to be a bit dry but no one complained so I'm still happy. There's something very satisfying about making your own pie - from the crust all the way through to the peeling and cutting of the apples. I love it!
We flipped a coin this year and decided to eat dinner with The Camellos and dessert with The Weems. We finally got a good photo of all of us. Renee would disagree but I don't care. Joe's photo taking privileges have been reinstated due to this photo.
My dad pimped it out with all the girl cousins
The next day Anthony and I went to the Niles Christmas Parade as we do every year with the Camello clan. Turns out that it was Aunt Sissy's birthday too so we went into The Florence for a celebratory shot. Can you guess who's idea it was? Wrong! It was Renee!
We sat a messy table with a bunch of empty beers so she could look badass in the biker bar
