It's that time of year again:  my family's annual progressive dinner!  I can't tell you how much I look forward to this event.  It's so fun to "hop" as we call it from one house to the next.  The first house has appetizers, the second is dinner, and the third is dessert.  It's a fun way to see everyone's Christmas decorations.  In past years when my immediate family has hosted one of the "stops" we put Christmas lights all the way down our driveway which is a mile long.  I just love the holidays so everything about it makes me really happy.  What's even more special this year is that my 14 month old son will now be part of the tradition and hopefully love it as much as I did/do.  I always looked forward to playing with my cousins and eating lots of good, homecooked food.  Speaking of food, yep, this event really doesn't cater towards my maintenance plan.  It's honestly worse than Thanksgiving because there is SO MUCH food for each house.  I'm not kidding when I say the dessert is a mile long - and I'm not talking about some Kroger/store bought desserts.  They are all homemade and look absolutely divine.  I've already planned out how I'm going to survive, enjoy myself, and hopefully not see a weight gain.  As a family we are going to hike tomorrow morning and then all my meals before dinner are going to have the least amount of calories, fat, starch, and meat as possible.  I'm saving it all for the big meal.  I'm sure I'll have a few fatty starches at dinner but there will be shrimp and salad so I'm going to eat the most of that.  Then, I'm going to let myself enjoy it a little bit and at least try a bite of all the desserts I think look good.  We'll see how well my plan looks the following day.  Hope you all have a great weekend!
