NYE Menu and other ramblings

It's taken me long enough to get around to posting our NYE menu, hasn't it?

Here it is, simple as can be.

Crab Rangoons
Florentine Quiche
Vegetable tray (carrots, celery, bell pepper) with feta dip
Pasta salad with tri colored rotini
Caprese Bruschetta
Oven Roasted sweet potato fries
Cold spinach dip in bread bowl (served with sweet bread and wheat crackers)
Tortilla chips with salsa verde, hot salsa and medium salsa (something for everyone!)
Black and white cookies
Mint chocolate cupcakes
Raspberry vanilla cupcakes
Oreo truffles
Gourmet Chocolates
Chocolate covered peanut butter crackers

White Russian shot served in chocolate cups
Champagne (including a non alcoholic cranberry-blood orange)
Bottles of Beer
Mint and Mocha Cinnamon hot chocolate

That was it! And it was all very, very delicious!

*So I had to make a trip to the doctor today. I've been having this on going foot pain (in my left foot) for a few months now. And when I saw a few months, I mean 8.

Anyway, it's gotten progressively worse the last month or so. Sunday we went out to Southlake Town Square and after being on it for no more than 5 minutes, I was already in excruciating pain. It was brought to my attention later that evening that with our upcoming snowboarding trip, I should probably get it checked out.

So I made an appointment and went in this afternoon. My doctor took a look at my foot and pushed on the area that was tender and kind of gave me a look of shock. She ordered x-rays immediately. Good thing I had the portable dvd player with me, that thing came in handy today. Anyway, x-rays were taken and she came back in to talk to me. She told me that I have something called Plantar fasciitis. I'm not really sure what all of that means but basically I can never wear flip flops or go bare foot again. Or for the very least, until I am healed. I was instructed to get a pair of Crocs, some heel cups, arch supports, a referral to a podiatrist, a prescription for a steroid, some exercises to do -- and honestly, she wanted to tell me not to go snowboarding. She said several times that she was really nervous about me going - but she made me promise to be very diligent about keeping off my feet for the next two weeks, do the exercises, and not go barefoot. I also had to promise that if I start to hurt at all in any way while I am up there, to stop. She also mentioned me possibly having to do some physical therapy once I get back.

It's all a little too much for a foot pain that I thought would go away.

Hopefully I will be able to work it out on my own, without further treatment!

In other news, I truly, truly have learned the kindness of others this week. I really don't have the words to express what I want to say regarding it, but it's insanely amazing.

Also, Rylee has an imaginary friend named Alex. I think she's based this friend off the character Alex the Lion from the movieMadagascar. Barely two for two months and already has an imaginary friend. Sheesh

I hear radio commercials every morning on the way to work about plantar fasciitis.
