Christmas Tree (kinda sorta), Potstickers and Vegis

I can't believe it is Sunday already! Do we really have to go to work tomorrow???? Today was somewhat uneventful! I did a bundle of ironing and then headed out to do a couple errands. I got shoes to go with my dress for our company Christmas parties this weekend. I also stopped by Lowe's and picked up our "Christmas trees." Since we're staying in this very tiny apartment, we knew we didn't really have room for a big tree. We also don't have any of our decorations (they're all in storage). Instead, I got two little trees. First, a rosemary tree:

...and a mini palm (which will eventually go into Josh's office):

After my errands and such, I went to the gym. I ran two miles and then did an hour of weights. I totally didn't want to go today but knew I wouldn't be able to go tomorrow (dr's apt!), so I forced myself!! For dinner, I made these yummy potstickers (I boiled them):

Served with steamed veggies and a little stir fry sauce:



They were very good! Did you have a nice Sunday?

Your kitchen in the background looks just like mine. It has about 12 inches of counter space, haha. I wonder if we have the same model in different locations?

My Sunday was nice. I stayed up way too late last night, so I've spent the majority of the day curled up on the couch. :)

Those pot stickers look fantastic!

I don't know where the weekends go - but they seem to FLY by especially during the holiday!

I love gyoza, glad you found some good ones! :)

I love the rosemary tree! We haven't put up a tree in years and I miss it...but now its just bengal bait and would be knocked over in a nanosecond.

My downstairs neighbor has a palm tree on her porch decorated with christmas lights. It's a Florida christmas tree :)

I love your "tree"! I think I need something like that although I have seen a ton of people in my building dragging in huge trees. So sad the weekend is almost over! Boo hoo

I love your rosemary tree! Those always smell so good. Definitely a good option for this year.

I tried to get in an extra good workout today too. I have to travel some tomorrow to a dr. apt and will have to miss my date with the gym.

What store did you buy those potstickers from? They look awesome!

What cute trees! They will last a lot longer than the traditional kind. Glad you got some great shoes. I just bought my holiday party dress today (shoes are next).. I got a great deal (I think)! :)

What a great idea for your trees! They are very pretty. :-)

Yesterday was perfect....went to the Colts game where they crushed the Bengals! I will be so sad when football season is over!

Cute trees!! Can you use the rosemary off the rosemary tree?? I got some TJ's potstickers this weekend too! Your bread from the last post looks delicious :)

Aggie said...

I love your rosemary tree! I've been wanting to pick one up! And of course...I love the palm!!

Those potstickers look good...I haven't tried those.

It was a good Sunday for me...very productive in cleaning up the house, then some shopping for an upcoming party next weekend.

Have a great Monday!

lauren said...

I need to stock up on those potstickers - they are completely delicious. I like how you mixed them with veggies and sauce - good idea!

Those potstickers look good - where did you find them?

It sounds like you had a great time! I made dinner rolls for a friend who's moving into her new hours, cinnamon rolls for dinner(from scratch) and worked on my book that's coming out this week (panicked scream here).

Catherine said...

Loove the rosemary tree! It's like a kitchen-friendly xmas tree! :)

I had a great Sunday... nice long walk with the bf in the sub-zero weather, some football watching and a relaxing evening with a good book. Hope you're having a fabulous Monday!!
