Maybe we all do.

It’s the time of year when you can no longer lazily scroll Instagram, randomly liking holiday food and cocktail posts while visions of prime rib and eggnog dance in your head.

No, we’re way past that. You’ve eaten the prime rib and gone back for seconds. You’ve refilled your eggnog cup three-too-many times and topped it off with wine (both red and white, let’s be honest). You’ve eaten your weight in cookies, rolls with butter, and, let’s not forget pie. Oh, sweet, sweet pie.
