Question for you:

What is your fitness goal this week?

Christmas Spirit

After decorating the house yesterday, my mom, Andrew and I headed out for dinner and to see lights around town.

This house MAYYYY go to a little extreme…


OHH nevermind, this one wins


(fast foward to today)

 Justin the Elf showed up this morning! Andrew was thrilled!


It was also time to pick out the tree!


Now it’s pj time, while watching Four Christmases.

Question for you:

Do you have a favorite christmas movie?

-mine is It’s a Wonderful Life


busy bee

sorry the past week has been crazy. but not only that, my mom, who is letting me use her camera (since I lost mine), she has been using it (BOOO) (I had to steal it back haha)

(and Im hoping Santa brings me a camera, or I can get a good deal on one after christmas)


A lot has happened!

The family got together for Christmas card pictures

Andrew and I will be sending our VERY FIRST christmas card just the two of us. The family photo will be sent out by my parents.

(if you want a card, send me your address. seriously. Just email me


Justin the elf has been moving around the house!

My house started falling apart! the sink started leaking all over, the cabinet had to come out…….:-( And one of the electric outlets upstairs started smoking!

Andrew and I went to breakfast w/ Santa at my old gradeschool

We went to a Billikens basketball game

I started a new project

I also went on another date w/ Cody.  On Sunday night we went to get dinner. Thai food to be exact. I have never had Thai before. We got crab rangoon and then I got sweet and sour chicken. It was ok.

We then grabbed some starbucks. (yup. He loves starbucks and loved the pumpkin spice latte this fall. He might be a keeper! haha)








With our coffee ready, we headed to Our Lady of the Snows. This is located in Illinois and is one of my favorite places. There are over 1 MILLION lights and they start putting them up in October !!!!

(sorry not the best picture)

The place is absolutely gorgeous and my family has been visiting for years on Christmas Eve. So it was nice to share this with Cody who has never been, but says there is a similar place in Kentucky, where he is from.

So far, he is an extremely nice guy and defiantly has the southern charm that has been lacking in my previous relationships. BUT its only been a few dates haha. Ill keep you guys updated!

Question for you:

What Thai food do you usually order?
