Quick Catch-Up (Christmas to Present)


First, let me begin by apologizing for the lack of posts throughout the past two weeks.  

I have spent lots of time with family and friends just drinking in memories and their presence and do not have many pics to show for it but I am going to catch you up by using the few pics I have posted to Facebook....and I mean few!!!

Here goes my catch up post!

I went to Mom and Dads with the rest of my siblings and their families.  I have no children so I especially enjoy the two or three days that I get to direct the elf...here is the first night...crazzzzzzy elf!!!! Swinging from candy canes!


And here is the night before Christmas morning when he was to leave.  He decided to host his own tea party as his final goodbye...what fun!!!

This is the lake Christmas morning...not much snow but at least a little!!! Soooo pretty!!!!
 

 This is the whole family together (minus one brother-in-law Steve) LOVE THIS!!!!


This is the day I got home from Mom and Dads.  A few days after Christmas.  I had to take the tree down. I get a real one and I usually put it up before Thanksgiving so it is really DEAD by the end of Christmas! HA HA 

I got this awesome toy from my sister for Christmas!!! LOVE IT!!! I have been eating a smootie everyday for breakfast!!! YUMMY stuff like Kale, Chia, Hemp, Flax, Spinach, Frozen Pineapple, Frozen berries, frozen mango and/or Frozen Pomegranate - YUMMY!!!!! This is pre-grind!

-

And this is post grind! Promise...it tastes wayyyy better than it looks!!! Note: I HAVE LEARNED THAT YOU SHOULD ADD FROZEN OR FRESH PINEAPPLE TO EVERY SHAKE IF YOU LIKE THE TASTE OF IT.  FOR SOME REASON PINEAPPLE KILLS THE TASTE AND BITTERNESS OF ANYTHING ELSE YOU ADD LIKE KALE, ETC. try it^!


 This is a new pizza place that opened near me.  It has been a legend a few towns away and they just expanded and opened one by me! AMAZING!!! Thank goodness for those shakes!


I was at the Post Office two days ago and was FLOORED by this.....really?!?!?!...already?!?!?!?  Thanks for the reminder that I need to find one!


And, just to end on a high note, this is what we woke up to in Pittsburgh today!!! Of what fun! A few inches of snow and 8 degrees (and that is without the wind). I AM READY FOR A BEACH VACATION! HA!! Oh how I wish I were rich sometimes!!!!!!


Oh and PS - I do not drink and was not feeling social this year so I did nothing for New Years except hang out with myself and watch the ball drop on Dick Clark's Rocking New Year Eve party! HA HA

 I hope you all have an amazing weekend!!! 

Definitely cannot complain about this two day work week!!! HA HA!~

Happy weekend yinz!!!
