New Years 2018

Gosh did 2017 fly by or what!!?!? I know we say it every year but I just felt like this year was especially fast.

Our New Year’s Eve night was a fun low key event and I was very happy with that!

My day started out with a crossfit workout it was tough! A 20 minutes AMRAP (as many rounds as possible) followed by 5minutes rest and an 18 AMRAP.

Next up was a little food prep, ornament decorating with Andrew and his cousins for my mom that we do every year, and then a nap.

Then we headed to Steve’s parents were we ate, drank, and played lots of apples to apples it was a blast!!!!

I’m so excited to see what 2018 brings! Next post I will have goals for 2018 and if I can’t find my goals for 2017, we can see how I did 😁

Question for you : < strong>What did you do for new years eve?

Christmas part 2

Our second Christmas was actually the day after with Steve’s parents. We are so lucky to have both families here in St. Louis and so we can celebrate any day of the week that Steve is off work, and works with my family’s Christmas.

My morning started by baking two pies. First was key lime pie, requested by Andrew. (I did not make the topping listed on the site. I made whipped cream with heavy cream and sugar) And then I made caramel apple pie cookie bars from Juli’s website at I didn’t have a quiche pan so I just used a pie pan and made coconut whipped cream for those

I then ran to crossfit to do this workout with my beastie Jess.

Also i am working on on double unders. I know have three in row!!!

Then it was time to clean up and head to Steve’s parents! We started with gifts where I was given nail polish, a red bird for my dish, and a happy lamp for my desk at work. Alllll things I was very happy to receive! I work in the basement with no windows so a happy lamp was top on the list. I believe in seasonal depression disorder and want to stop it before it starts!

After gifts, it was time for food! Pork, kloesse, green beans, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes (for Andrew), and of course dessert 🥧

After we also play games which include sequence, qwirkle,and a huge favorite the Saran Wrap ball game.

We have so much fun and always leave with stuffed bellies and a full heart.

< strong>Question for you:< strong>Do you play games on Christmas or other holidays your family celebrates ?
