Baking and Holiday Excitement

by Nicci on 11/15/2009

”Baking Challenged” over here…until now. I actually baked a yummy dessert today for a guest post.

Sneak Peak….

Can you guess what I baked? I was working on a Guest post for Mary at Fit this Girl.  I’m envious of the vacation she is taking next week to Germany. Please take me with you Mary! (I’ll be sure to link to this post next week)

I spent my Sunday lounging around the apartment baking and reading a book.  Sunday is my day of rest for exercise, my upper body is sore from yesterdays workout.

I couldn’t resist Christmas items when I stopped at my favorite dollar store yesterday.

I thought wanted to share my Christmas List with you guys as well.  Yes, I know we haven’t made it to Thanksgiving yet, but I couldn’t resist.

Nicci’s Christmas List

  1. GARMIN forerunner 305
  2. Food processor
  3. Cookbooks
  4. Cannon Rebel
  5. GLEE soundtrack, (GLEE on dvd comes out after Christmas)
  6. Wicked tickets for Summer Musical 2010 in Dallas. (I say Wicked 2 yrs. ago and plan to watch it two times this time around)

Wow, all fitness and blogger related items so far!

I know Thanksgiving hasn’t even come, but what’s on are your  Christmas list?

To answer some readers comments:

I’m currently running outside instead of the treadmill; preparing for a 5k. I learned the 5k I planned to run, is the same day as a wedding I’m attending. I’m trying to decide on a 5k for later this month or next month…decisions.

Wasa crackers are good and crunchy. Check out their website for yummy recipes.

The reviews are mainly in favor of Cuisinart as a top food processor. I am looking for one currently. Do tell which one you end up going with.

I’m torn. I wanna Ipod Touch or the Ipod with a pedometer. I already have a Sansa situation though. Should I get an Ipod or should I not? That is the question.

Are we the same person cause I want that camera AND that watch like you do!!! i guess we both have the same goals. ;)

Thanks for sharing your Christmas decorations! I’m ready for Christmas… well actually I’m ready to be off! I just realize that I never have a Christmas list of things I want? I guess as long as I can get my son some things that he want, that makes me happy. I’ve never tried Wasa crackers, I’ll have to check them out. Thanks!

What is Glee? I’ve seen it mentioned in other blogs and everyone seems to know what it is.

Heather November 16, 2009 at 5:03 am

so much to say to you this morning:

a) dont tell me im a bad blogger friend, but today is the first time i’ve ever actually visited niccisniftyeats! i am always viewing your posts via my google reader! and can i just say – your blog header is the CUTEST THING EVER!

ok. moving on.

b) i saw Wicked on Broadway in July and I will be seeing it next month as it starts its tour in Schenectady NY- i totally understand your need to seeing it twice more :)

c) that snow man is super cute.

d) if there HAPPENS to be a 5K in the greater Denton area (rather than the greater dallas area, yeah- i know where it’s at!) sometime dec 24-27- id be down for running it if youd be down for running it ;) [bloggie meet up AND a race- yes please!]

Oh I’d LOVE a digital SLR. I really don’t know what I want for Christmas!

Melinda November 16, 2009 at 2:56 am

I loved Wicked, but then again it is one of my fave books. I celebrate Hanukah and the holiday is a tad (I think like almost 2 weeks this year) earlier than Christmas so I really need to start thinking. In fact I must be slacking since my mom is already sending my presents this week and I am only mentioned a few basics like itunes gift cards.

I want new running shoes for Christmas…I am in need of new shoes so badly!

fittingbackin November 15, 2009 at 9:00 pm

Love the Christmas feel! I’m so ready for the holidays!!

My sister is a snowman gal! I try to find penguin stuff!!! Great xmas list!

Jolene ( November 15, 2009 at 8:25 pm

I love that you are in the Christmas spirit already too!! I cannot wait to be able to start shopping and decorating … just as soon as school winds down a bit!

Lee November 15, 2009 at 7:36 pm

I would like a SLR camera too. Aside from that, I saw this cooking with Trader Joe’s cookbook that I really want. And maybe a massage.

Katie November 15, 2009 at 7:34 pm

I love your decorations! I can’t believe it’s already the holiday season.

#1 and #4 are on my wish list as well…

Trinity November 15, 2009 at 7:17 pm

did you make oatmeal cookies?

Lesley Living Life November 15, 2009 at 6:45 pm

I’m feeling the Christmas spirit lately myself!! Ha, when I was little I never knew what I wanted for Christmas but anymore, my lists just keep growing and growing!! lol.

Emily November 15, 2009 at 6:16 pm

Our Christmas lists sound really similar! I really want a Garmin, too. I have no idea what pace I’m running, and it would be nice to know that and the distance. I also need a new camera really badly!

Erica November 15, 2009 at 6:09 pm

That little snow man is so cute! You list looks good to me! I’d love a garmin and a new camera. But not really wanting wanting anything!

Allie (Live Laugh Eat) November 15, 2009 at 5:50 pm

Wicked is coming to Durham too!! I saw it last year in London and it took every muscle in my body not to jump up and start belting out ‘TELL THEM HOW I AM DEFYING GRAAAVITY!!!’ I have listened to the album at least 100 times in the last 3 years haha. Okay I got a little excited about that wish list item…just a little bit.

Baking success!? HOORAY!

Lauren @ Eater Not a Runner November 15, 2009 at 5:09 pm

Yes I agree, the Garmin is on my list as well!

Love the snowman :-D

Mari November 15, 2009 at 5:08 pm

lol I always ask for fitness related gifts too =)

cute snowman =)

Nicci November 15, 2009 at 5:06 pm

They really would! Maybe they will change the date of the release.

Kat November 15, 2009 at 4:50 pm

That’s pretty ridonkulous that the Glee DVD comes out AFTER Christmas. Don’t they realize they’d make bank if they released it BEFORE?!?

And I want a dSLR sooooo bad!!!!

Peanut Butter Bliss November 15, 2009 at 4:28 pm
