Catching Up

Hey everyone!  Merry Christmas Eve-Eve.  I'm sure you are busy getting your last minute preparations for the holidays in order or hopefully just relaxing and spending time with your family.  We are doing a little of both.  In the Christmas craziness, I don't have much of a post today, just a list of different things going on to catch you up!

Cookie Exchange

I set out to make a cute cookie this year at our annual cookie exchange with my girlfriends from the Junior League.  Every year I bring something tasty, but not so impressive looking.  This year I wanted the prize for "best dressed" and I won!

I stole the recipe from fellow Pi Phi Vanessa after she posted that these cookies were a hit at her cookie exchange.  Why reinvent the wheel?  Thanks Vanessa!  You can get the recipe here. 


HuffPost Live

You can watch the segment I was a guest on below talking about Holidays in Splitsville.  I speak around minutes 5:30 and 15:30 if you don't want to watch the entire thing...and yes, the audio is not synced.  I think I need a new computer :)  Regardless, it was a fun experience. 

Tacky Sweater Enchilada Night

We had our third annual Tacky Sweater Enchilada Night at my Dad's on Saturday.  The matching sweaters I ordered for me and Jason fell through so we were duds.  He wore last year's and I wore my I'm Tired Sweatshirt since it described exactly how I felt that day. 

My boys however, looked amazing!

Awkward holds and all!


I'm asking for lots of Lululemon this year from Santa in hopes that it will jump start my workouts after Christmas.  I know, so year, new you.  I can't quite use the excuse of "I just had a baby" anymore.  Luckily for me (not my wallet) a Lululemon is opening minutes from my house!!!  Boy am I in trouble. 

In order to get my butt out of bed at 5:30 a.m. to workout, I require a cute outfit.

Last time I was in really good shape a few years ago Lulu was my reward for pounds lost (and also minutes from where I lived then).  5 dropped pounds = a new pair of Wunder Unders.  Workout 4 times this week = headband.  Hey, whatever works people!  Luckily I have lots of pounds to drop for my little reward system. 

Until then, this is my motto:

And finally...

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!  I will be taking the rest of the year off from the blog, except for my annual year in review.  I hope you have a wonderful holiday with your friends and family.   I am so incredibly thankful to everyone who reads this little blog.  I love all of the virtual friendships I've made and look forward to getting to know you more!  See you 2014! 

{I'll be all over Instagram during my blogging break so follow me there}

Lots of love!


  1. It was a lulu Christmas at my house! I love your motivators. The nice folks at my local Lululemon know me now because I'm in and out of there so much. (Sad, but true.)

    Have a happy new year!

    1. So happy you had a lulu Christmas! Tell me all you got! It will be very bad when the lulu opens near me. I got a new bang buster, wunder unders, crb and a base runner 1/2 zip...basically a cute little outfit. Off to bed for a 5:30 am pb class tomorrow. Happy New Year!
