Yesterday, I had a pretty awesome time with my niece and nephew. I also made it to the gym which was even better.After a four day hiatus, it was needed. I went with 30 min of elliptical and this workout.

Christmas Cards

Each year, my family sends out a Christmas Card to family and friends. It first started when I was around 5 years old, with just me and my brothers. Each year it just seems to grow!

This was the picture that Andrew and I sent out two years ago

We always have a good time (although my brothers dislike it quite  a bit, and my mom constantly says “Just one more” haha)

Christmas family pictures

The whole family got together for Christmas pictures a few weeks ago. We have been taking pictures since I was about 6 years old

All in all, I think it took about an hour. Which is great timing for all the individual pictures and group pictures we took together.

Do you send out a card or Christmas picture to family and friends?

Getting ready for christmas

Today was extremely productive. I followed some awesome advice from these comments, and made some priorites. First up, THE GYM! (yep I made this my #1 goal today)

I then got a little pretty (sorry bad picture, i looked better than this picture shows I promise haha)

I then ran my booty all around St Louis. Target. Then to send out my christmas cards!

Arent the stamps cute!

Then I had to mix up some cookies for my mom. chocolate chip!

After licking the spoon clean, I headed to sports authority and to get something for my dad. It was a crazy busy day and this was all before noon!!!! So I was starving!

Lunch was finished in about 90 seconds and then I wrapped presents while watching The Santa Clause III….until I ran out of tape……darn it!

One of the last things on my list was setting the table for christmas. I will have to wash everything, but I just wanted to see how it looked put together

Not too shabby, but I have a few things in mind when xmas is over and they are cheaper! 🙂

Food Update: I did eat some sweets today, maybe Ill do a food blog tomorrow. But I ate alot better than I have been, so Im making progress. And I did 35 min on the treadmill (got up to a 9.5 speed!) and then did weights for 30 min. I actually had to tell myself to leave to get other stuff done haha.

Question for you:

What is your favorite Christmas movie?
