Believe it or not, I have not fallen into quicksand or vanished in the Bermuda Triangle. Just been a bit sidetracked. Quick recap -
Christmas was great, hope yours was too! We got lots of fun stuff, but my favorite is this:
I've been wanting one for years. I'm sure I can attribute this to dozens of cookies I'll be making and therefore the extra ten pounds I'll probably put on this year.
Craig got Cougar gear, even some for AJ!
Christmas night, we went to dinner at Denny's, for the ultimate white trash Christmas experience. I love it!
We had a little New Year's party. AJ had a blast. She kept randomly running up to people in her giant party hat and blowing her noisemaker, shouting "THIS PARTY IS SO FUN!" Please also note the purple make-up all over their faces is not my doing.
I made this scrapbook page:
I made this frame to hang in my scrapbook room:
I decided that each month I am going to rotate a new page into it:
I made another wedding autograph book for one of Candace's photography clients:
Planned a year's worth of activities for my Activity Day Girls (church calling):
Read "Enna Burning":
(It was good, but not as good as "The Goose Girl", a must read if you haven't already.)
Watched Masterpiece Theatre's Jane Eyre:
Ah, I love you Edward!
Finished, "Eclipse", the last book in the "Twilight" series:
Ah, I love you Edward!
Watched "The Painted Veil":
Ah, I love you Edward! Hm, I can't put my finger on it, but I feel like there's some kind of pattern developing...
Finally got my buns back to the gym:
(This is not what I look like.) In fact...
This is what I look like after I've worked out. I don't know what the deal is, but when I even start to break a sweat, my face gets so red it looks like I'm ready to explode. And I feel fine, really good actually, but I think the people around me look at me like "Wow, we've been going for five minutes and she's having a heart attack. That's sad. I'm going to keep working out so I'm not ever as out-of-shape as her." At least I'm motivating others, I guess.
I sold the "Pride and Prejudice" push pins from my Etsy store (yay!) and made two new sets to list:
and Somewhere In Time
Does anyone else remember this movie - one of my favorites! So romantic!!!
So that's a taste of what I've been up to. And in true "back to blogging" fashion, since it's Tuesday, here's my Tunesday Playlist.
