The days are just flying by...

Where has the time gone?  I meant to post yesterday, but ended up having a bad day and forgetting and now it is almost the end of the day.  Nuts!

Friday was a fun-filled day!  Our company holiday party was so fun.  We had a GREAT lunch and I ate up a storm.  I wasn't even ashamed of it.  We were at a fancy joint and I was going to enjoy it!  Our gift exchange was fun too.  I ended up with a bottle of Bailey's.  YUM.

That night, we went our Jazzercise friends party.  We had a DELICIOUS dinner and I brought some chocolate pie for dessert from the local bakery.  We did a Christmas ornament exchange and had a great time doing it.  I ended up with a margarita glass and shaker ornaments.  Plus, our sweet hostess got us all ornaments engraved with "Diva".  That's what we call our group...the Jazzercise Divas.  We are a very diverse group of ladies and it is fun that we get together and can have such a good time.
Saturday was mostly lazy.  I did do a lot of laundry and got my eyebrows threaded.  How's that for the exciting life?  BFF & I went to see My Week With Marilyn.  I really liked it and thought Michelle Williams did a fantastic job playing Marilyn.

Sunday, I had my big photo shoot.  I think everything went really well.  I get nervous when I think about it because all I can think about is that I will see them and think I am fat.  Sigh.  I hope that isn't the case, but what can I do?  The photographer is a friend of Debi's and he seemed to be a perfectionist.  I know that they will turn out as well as they possibly can.  I just have to decide that I like how I look and there is nothing a photographer can do about that!!  :) 

Yesterday, we had our Interesting Dinner Christmas get-together.  These are the beautiful ladies I have dinner with every month.  It is so nice to find time for special friends.  BFF drew my name in the gift exchange and she gave me piano music books which I can't wait to try out.  I drew Cowgirl and got her Christmas towels with cowboy boots on them.  Perfect, right??



It cracks me up that I look so tall.  I have my Oxford Platforms on and those always make me feel like a giantess.  :) 

I made it up for CrossFit yesterday and today, so that's awesome!  I'm very sore.  :)  Tomorrow I have the day off (I'm getting a fill!) and I'm trying to get myself to get up and go to CF.  I would be so glad I did!  But I probably won't.  Ha!  If I don't, I will go to Jazzercise though.  Gotta stay on track!

One last thing.  I'm planning a Minute to Win It style game for my family to play this Christmas.  We did it last year and it was so much fun.  Have you done that?  If so, what are your favorite games?

Hugs!

That sweater you're wearing in the last photo looks just like one I just got!!! Love it on you!!! And I don't know why, but I really like the way you styled your hair in that photo too!

I can't wait to see the photos!! I'm a perfectionist too when it comes to peoples photos, but when I GET my photo taken, I feel the same way as you....I look bad or my face looks like someone farted near me or my thunder thighs are out in full force. But they always end up looking good. No worries!!

Looking good!

I see alcohol plays a big part in your gifts :p never played the minute to win it games, but it does sound like a great family fun game. Enjoy :o)

Good luck with your fill. I am scared to take professional pics for the same reason but I should. You always have so much fun lil lady!

I love that red sweater!

You have your eyebrows threaded?! I had that done once, and NEVER again! It felt like getting a paper cut from an manilla folder, over, and over, and over again...

You are the busiest person I know. You just keep going and going and going like the energeizer bunny.

Sounds like you have had a ton of fun.

What is Minute to Win it? It's a family tradition of ours to play board/games each Christmas eve and this week I've been trying to think of what to buy for this year and haven't found anything good yet!

Love your outfit in the pic! I guarantee if I was in the pic with you I would make you look short and your friends look like midgets! LOL
