thoughts so random it hurts

All the presents are wrapped and under the tree.  I have even cleaned up my gift staging area and gone through the Christmas bins to Goodwill the things I know I won't use next year.

I do however have 5 baskets of clean clothes in my bedroom that have been waiting all week to be put away.

Today I vowed to stop eating chips.

I haven't made it to the gym three days a week since July{hence the chip vow}.

Next week I vow to make it to the gym three days a week for the next 8 months.

In eight months Todd and I have our 20th High School reunion{I possibly need to stop eating more than chips}

Speaking of Toddy, today is our 11th Wedding Anniversary.

This is the text he sent me this morning. *Happy Anniversary. I love you, it has been bliss, and even when it wasn't I still loved you madly* Don't be mistaken people, this is romance at it's finest!

 {I love gingerbread houses.  This is Asher's creation}

I am possibly looking forward to taking down the Christmas decorations.

I want to repaint the entry way hallway so bad it's making me itch.

I'm thinking I should have bought myself a Panini press for Christmas.  I'm not sure why I think this.  I warned you these were random.  {yes, for the record, I did all the Christmas shopping for myself.  I'm as excited as the kids to rip open my gifts and I already know what they are!}

 {Starbucks ain't got nothing on me}

This morning on the way out of the gym{for the 2nd and last time this week} Sloan and I opened the door for the very interesting "woman" walking through, After the door shut Sloan said "That's not a mommy, that's a boy!". 

This is the boys new favorite Christmas song. It's not new at all, just to us.

 {this picture is making another Christmas song come to mind}

I'm making this cocktail on Christmas eve{I wish I was drinking one right now.  It's 3:00pm}

I'm also making this appetizer

I would like to wear dresses with boots for the rest of my life.

{ I think this cute dress is making the fact that my forehead is huge less noticeable. well, on second thought maybe not}

I'll be 38 next month.

Have I ever told you I hate my birthday.

I'm thinking I will not do another "What I Wore" entry until I get a mirror some place other than in my bedroom.

 {this guy makes me feel young}

 {that guy looks like he's struggling to have fun}

I'm thinking about going to a Zumba class

I'm really hoping that December 26th doesn't find me upset that I'm not in Des Moines

I have to find a rug for my kitchen

When Sloan wakes up at night{which he does often}, he yells that there's a big bad monster in his room.  How could I not go in there just to check and then sneak him into our bed.

{Santa's death grip on the back of Holden's neck is cracking me up}

I'm thinking about not going to Target for 30 days to see how much money I save, but I'm scared.

I love Target.

I need to finish baking Christmas cookies. 

the elf on the shelf blog entry from last week is still making me laugh.

I hope that you are all finding some comfort and joy during this busy holiday season.  I'm off to dip some peanut butter balls in chocolate.

I forgot that your anniversary is the same day as mine! Happy anniversary! 15 years for us. Some days it feels like forever and other days I can't believe how fast time has gone.

Just wondering if you made the peppermint and choc could have added some sprinkles:-) Miss you! Hope you are enjoying your "break" with the kiddos!
