I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! I had such a great time visiting all of my and my husband’s family. It was so nice having so many young nephews, neices and cousins at all of the get-togethers this year, and it made for a really fun and special Christmas. If you know anything about my husband, you know that he has A LOT of family. Growing up I’ve always had 2 places to go. 1. My mom’s parents’ house. 2. My dad’s parents’ house. Throw my husband Shane’s family into the mix, and now we’ve got 8 places to go for Christmas. It’s tough sometimes trying to balance visiting with everyone and also having time to yourself to relax and enjoy the holidays, but it’s so worth it. We ended up making it to 6 places this year over the course of 4 days. Now it’s time to hit the gym tonight. That scale was not a pretty site this morning. There will be a lot of running in my future.
I’m back at work today, but it’s really throwing me off having to work the day after Christmas. How am I supposed to do after Christmas shopping when I’m at work?? That’s what lunch breaks are for I guess.
If you’re from Memphis, you know we don’t get snow here very often, and when we do it isn’t much, but we got some snow today! It’s probably only an inch and will be gone by lunchtime, but I’ll take it! Also, I will warn you that I love to take pictures as evidenced below. Happy Hump Day!
