Yeah, I know, it has been a while. Trust me, there is a reason why I have been MIA for a while. If you follow me on Facebook than you know that the Mr. and I hitched a ride on a few planes from CA-NY to see family and friends for New Years. Have you ever tried to see everyone and do everything within 5 days when you have been gone for nearly 2 years? It isn't easy. When we were home we finally got a chance to go to a SU basketball game. For those who follow college basketball, you might know that we are currently #1 in the Big East. We have been following our hometown team and watching the games on TV but we hit the days just right to where we were able to go to one of the games. So we were both pretty excited to finally be in the Carrier Dome watching a game.

We also got a chance to see another local team, the Syracuse Crunch play as well. My mom was able to get us awesome seats and I was up close and personal to watch a bunch of grown men slam each other around and get physical on the ice.

We also got to do something we weren't able to attend last year... First Night. We have something called Lights on the Lake where during the holidays you drive through all of these light displays while listening to the programed music channel but on New Years Eve, they shut it down to cars and allow the public to walk through all the light displays instead... the whole 5 miles worth.

When we finally made it back home, I realized... I have no more stored up recipes! I thought I had more saved on our old computer but when I yanked the hard drive and had a looksy, I realized I needed to get my butt in the kitchen and start cracking. So I have been making up new dishes so that I can share them with you guys.

However, I was welcomed home by a box from Boundless Nutrition containing some of their wellness bars and protein cookies to review. They also offered to give one of my lucky readers a chance to try their products as well. So as soon as I can eat my way through their treats, I will post my review. Believe it or not, these little guys are quite filling and even with the Mr. and I splitting them in half, we can pretty much only make it through one a day.

I hope that everyone is having a wonderful new year so far.

I went home for the holidays and agree with you. It is so hard to fit everything in when you have limited time. Looks like you had lots of fun though. I love those lights!
