Gooood morning everyone! Sorry for the delay in posting this month. It has been a whirlwind with all of the events and things going on. I am sure yours were/are the same! I decided to post a life update for those of you who are curious with what our household has been up to!
In the beginning of December, me and a couple of girlfriends hung out for the night. We watched some Gilmore Girls and ventured out for some dinner at the local bar. We ended up taking a bajillion pictures so these are couple of the good ones! I have had these glow-in-the-dark dinosaur pajamas for years now but this night was the last of them. I got them from Target from the little boy section (fyi). The zipper ended coming undone and ended up being secured by safety pins (although you cant really see them from these pictures).
I have also had some crazy work weeks at work this month due to having some use-or-lose vacation time. This allowed me to experience the new Cub right by our house. It opened on a Thursday (which I happened to have off) so I went there to check out the deals. One thing I have never seen before, purple and white asparagus! Have your ever seen it? They were pretty expensive so I didn’t try them, but it was definitely surprising!
In the middle of the month, we had a work holiday party type of thing. I say that because it was after an all staff meeting where we had a potluck and some people participated in a gift exchange. I received this mug with a container of Starbucks Hot Chocolate. I haven’t used the Hot Chocolate yet but I have definitely used the mug!
Other than that, our life has been pretty busy with weekend events. Here are some exhausted puppy photos.
We celebrated Christmas with Bill’s family the weekend before Christmas as they went to Vietnam for the 3 weeks. How awesome is that!? I can’t wait to hear all about it! Then this last weekend we were planning on having my family come down from Fargo and have Bill’s parents over for a little get together. Unfortunately we weren’t able to make it happen as there was some nasty weather making its way through ND/MN and my parents didn’t want to get caught in it. Bill’s parents were still able to come over and we enjoyed some french dip sandwiches with homemade mac and cheese, salad and some homemade desserts. I will honestly say that I don’t feel too bad after this weekend of eating. Probably has to do with going to the gym every day 🙂 I am working on #deshedding for Mexico. We are heading out in almost exactly a month! If you don’t remember, this is the place that we are going:
There are 4 of us going and I think we are all ready for a little R & R. I plan on doing some progress updates on Wednesdays so make sure to check in to see how its going! I have a goal that I want to get to but don’t really want to share specifically what it is yet (guess you’ll have to check in tomorrow!). For New Years Eve, we are having a little shin dig at our house. We have some friends in from FL so we will all be getting together. It should be a fun evening of food, drinks and catching up!
Anyways, that is our lives. I hope that the end of your 2016 is going as smoothly as possible and if I don’t see you tomorrow, I might not see you until next year!
