Hello! Long time no blog right? Well, I was taking a little holiday break. I ate and drank and was merry and I hope you all were too. I did manage to get in some great workouts and was quite happy when I actually got my butt up yesterday to hit the Body Pump class at the Y. It was a virtual ghost town and I scored some serious rock star parking. Gotta love beating the “resolution” crowd. They’ll be back in the gym from about January 2 to about late February. Fortunately, none of us are “those” people. *Insert workout snobbery here.*

At my current job we have a “soft close” until after the new year, which basically means we can check emails and work as we see fit. It has been amazing. I’ve been able to workout numerous times a day (I’m so sore!) and I finally brought Lloyd into work with me. He was totally sleeping on the job yesterday.

Yeah, I’m gonna need you to come in on Saturday…

As for  my holiday, it was awesome. I spent some time volunteering at Metropolitan Ministries again. I invited Jess and Stephanie to go with me and I think they both enjoyed it as much as I do.

I also got to have lots and lots of time with my nephew/Godson during his first Christmas. He’s seriously the BEST thing. There’s just something so magical about having a baby around during the holidays. I can’t wait to see him really get into the Santa stuff as he gets older. He’s been the very best gift our family has ever received. Good job Big Sis and BIL!

Cuteness runs in the family.

I am quite truly thankful for so much right now. I’m healthy and so are my friends and family. I’m happy and I can’t really think of a thing I need. I am looking forward to an awesome new year. I hope you and yours have a very Happy New Year. I’ll catch you all in 2013.

What are you thankful for?
