Last night I rushed home from work because I had BIG plans.

My frat bros and I were going to watch National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation at 7pm.  Always all about that Christmas spirit.  First, I wanted to make sure I squeezed in a quick workout, so I hopped on YouTube and completed the Tone It Up Kettletoning workout that I talked about a few weeks ago.

{Yep, there’s a little sneak peek of my headboard!  I’m obsessed with it, but to be honest I want to wait until I have better pillows so the pictures turn out all pretty…gotta wait until it’s in the budget}.

Then it was time for dinner.  I was initially inspired by a post from the Women’s Health Insta account earlier {blogger, Keri Glassman, took over for the day}.  Knowing I wanted a warm but hearty meal, I decided to heat up some organic creamy tomato soup from Trader Joe’s, but with a twist.

Flax seed and nuts for added nutrition!  Right now I only have these cashew pieces, so I added a handful {1/4 cup-ish} of cashews and a tablespoon of flax seeds to the soup while it was warming.

I also sauteed the rest of my brussels sprouts with a little garlic, S&P, and raw honey.  It was deeelish!

Top the soup off with some fresh parsley and you’re good to go.  This was the first time I’ve ever added anything like this to soup, but I was incredibly please/shocked/full with the new addition.  It will definitely be something that I will continually add to my soup in the future.

As I’ve said before…I have no pretty bowls, but I have tons of pretty mugs.  So we’re gonna mug the soup today {for the pictures sake}.

And that about sums up my night…cashew infused soup, honey brussels sprouts, water, wine, Christmas Vacation, and a pine scented candle.  Pretty much everything I wanted last night in one picture.

What did you guys have for dinner last night?  What are some of your favorite Christmas movies?
