Just dropping in today to wish everyone a wonderful, happy, healthy 2019! 2018 was quite the year for me. It was marked by severe loss and profound joy. In the span of a year, I got engaged to my best friend, closed on the most spectacular home in our dream neighborhood and had amazing adventures with family and friends. In that same time, I lost my uncle Curtis who will forever have a place in my heart, and made an incredible imprint on my life. As this year drew to a close, spending time with family and friends was at the top of my list. We made some amazing memories, and spent time with the ones who mean the most to us. As NYE drew closer, the age old question of what to do was on our minds, and we thought a night in with friends was the perfect solution. I cannot recommend this more! We had such a lovely night in, eating good food, watching shows and wearing our coziest pajamas.
I headed over to Trader Joe's that morning for a bunch of fun snacks - chocolate covered raisins, popcorn, assorted crackers, and some fun dips. I decided to grab the spicy hummus dip which is one of our favorites, and grabbed two new dips to try - the jalapeno lime almond dip (SO good) and the organic cashew fiesta dip which is a non-dairy cheese dip, which was also fantastic! We opened a few good bottles of red wine and we were set for the night.
For our dinner, we called our favorite local pizza place in Burbank, Reno's! They are just a few minutes from our house and make pickup or delivery super easy in a pinch. We got our favorite, the Reno's Supreme (salami, pepperoni, sausage, mushroom, black olive, bell pepper, onion, need I say more?) a Hawaiian, Cheese and a gluten free pepperoni pizza. My friend has issues with gluten and she said this is the best gluten free pizza she has ever had! Highly recommend Reno's if you're in the Burbank/Toluca Lake neighborhood - you can check them out here.
