1. Happy Anniversary, to me, to me (I’m hearing that to the tune of happy unbirthday)
On Tuesday, Ivan and I had our first anniversary. We’ve officially been together for a year. It seems like much longer. In a good way of course. Tuesday was his long day with classes, so we just had dinner together. We went back to the restaurant where we had our first date and then came back to my place and crashed while watching episodes of No Reservations. It was a good time.
2. Holiday Cards up the Wazoo
I received my box of holiday cards that I won from the ps print design contest. When I saw the box on the porch I thought it was the dutch oven that’s in the mail. I’ve never seen so many cards in one place. People will be receiving these cards for years. I hope everyone likes giraffes.
3. Christmas Gifts Galore
So I’ve been stepping up my christmas shopping game. I’ll be spending this Christmas in Arizona with Ivan’s family for the first time and I really wanted to come up with some great gifts. I purchased this customized, engraved rolling pin for his mom. Isn’t it fantastic? I think I have officially figured out everyone’s christmas gift. Because I won’t be here for christmas, my family is celebrating the weekend of Thanksgiving, so I had to get a jumpstart of gifts. It’s such a weird feeling to be done and not scrambling around.
4. Family Dinner
My brother-in-law works on Mackinac Island for half the year and he was finally able to come home this week. We had a big family dinner and it was just so wonderful to have everyone together.
5. Back to the Gym
This week I had to go to the doctors. Which means… I had to get weighed. The number was higher than I would have liked (I was wearing heavy boots, but still…). So I’ve made it my mission to get back on track. I’ve been in the gym the last 3 days and have been trying to watch my portions. I’ve been steadily eating more and more and that just needs to stop. I want to get hold of this before it gets out of control. Also, I’ve been thinking about getting a fitbit or a jawbone. Does anyone have one? What do you think of it?
