A Sweet Christmas

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.  I had a very relaxing, fun 3-1/2 day weekend with my family.  I did a lot of baking, which is pretty much the only thing I took pictures of this weekend.

My Dad's favorite, Pecan Balls.

Chocolate Mint Dreams and Sugar Cookies.


Also, a word of advice: if you are going to the movie theather soon, do yourself a favor and watch Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol.  I think it's one of the best movies made this year.

I'm writing this post in bed, at 12:34am.  I just got out of the shower after being on the treadmill for one hour.  No, I didn't run for an hour (wish I could say I did), but I was pretty sweaty afterwards, and that always feels good.  Sorry if that was a bit too much for any of you :)

So these past few months literally flew by.  I tried to keep doing full-time online school while working full-time and got completely overwhelmed.  So this coming semester I will be doing school part-time.  I will also not be studying accounting anymore, for which I am very grateful.  Hey, at least I know what I don't want to do.

I'm absolutely loving break and this no school/homework thing.  I kinda forgot what it was like to come home from work and just be able to relax without having homework in the back of my mind.  I really think I could get used to this.  Another good thing about break is that I've been getting back into exercising.  The eating less will come, it's so hard around the holidays!

And I'll leave you with a recent photo of me.  I was trying to take an outfit photo in the mirror, but it really didn't turn out the way I wanted it to.  How do you guys take photos of outfits during the wintertime when it's dark at night when you get home from work?
