I've been a little sick over the holidays and I'm guessing that the fact that I have not formally exercised AND have not been eating an ideal diet lately (oh my Mother's Christmas treats are so good...) are probably not helping.
Wait. I KNOW they are not helping. And my right nostril has not been fully functional for days which is just down right annoying! Too bad I got rid of that "neti pot" thingy they gave away at Blogher this year, right Jen? ha ha!
Anyway, it doesn't matter how I feel physically because my heart is so full.
We had a wonderful time celebrating Christmas with the family in Austin (never mind Christmas mass, I won't even go there, but let's just say mass after your 3 young children JUST opened their Christmas presents? NOTAGOODIDEA!!).
And when we returned home Monday night I ate some soup, got a few things squared away and then made myself one with my bed. And my wonderful husband made dinner, bathed the kids, went to the grocery store AND did laundry. All while I rested and slept. Yeah, he pretty much rocks.
I am blessed. But we all knew that already.
I am looking forward to the new year... resolving to eat better again and of course getting my bootie back on the treadmill.
I have a couple of challenges for 2012 that I am considering... I'll fill you in later.
For now, pics from our holiday.
I hope you all enjoyed yours as much as I did...
We celebrated with everyone on Christmas Eve...
I quite love this one... and these precious kids of mine... :)
