Look at me blogging “more frequently over break” – like I said I would.  I guess I forgot how busy the holidays are!  A good “busy” of course! 

When I sat down to blog, I was very overwhelmed by all the pictures I had taken & all the posts I had yet not written ~ so I decided to create three separate collages full of pictures.  Enjoy them!

Perhaps I should just call every single post I write “Catching Up”  ???!  

Christmas Collage:

Christmas 2010 027

^ Check out that gift!  Ben picked it out all on his own!  It measures body fat, muscle percentage, water percentage, etc.  I’m so pumped to try it out and improve my stats.  I think it will be a great motivator for me.

What was your fav Christmas gift this year?

I was spoiled ~ by Ben and my family and even his family.  I can’t even answer the above question right now!  But the older I get, the more true it becomes for me –>  It is better to give than to receive.  I love giving Christmas gifts!  I wish I could give Ben & my fam every single thing they want!!

Lilly’s Christmas Collage:

Can I just say how much Lilly is loving these two weeks of my Christmas Break.  We have spent so much time together.  I keep calling her my new Bestie.  She is becoming so spoiled!  I love her so much!! 


And finally…

New Year’s Eve Collage:

This is the 2nd year in a row that Ben & I have hosted the New Year’s party.  It’s a lot of work, preparing all the food and drinks, but I love being a hostess!!  I wish I would have taken more photos of food & decorations.

^ Check out that center photo!  2 things:

1) Cassie:

My BFF came to visit from Evansville!  This is becoming a New Year tradition & I absolutely love it!  What better way to ring in the New Year!??  I love seeing her and can’t wait for the day when she lives in Indy!! 

2) Money?

Yes, Eddie bet Cassie $5 that I would not make it up until midnight.  I showed him!  Let me tell you, I partied like I was in college again!  We didn’t hit the bed until 4AM.  Take that Eddie!!

Cassie and I made sure to drink water from our Nathans between drinks.  I really didn’t feel bad at all the next day.  I love water.

This has been such a wonderful break.  I don’t go back to school until Thursday, which means I have three more days off.  I am currently at home in Southern Indiana, enjoying time with my fam.  Yesterday, we went to church, went to lunch, went to the movies, visited both sets of my grandparents, had dinner together, then played Apples to Apples.  Talk about major fam time!  It was great!! 

Today KT and I have a lot on our to-do list.  Ready to be productive.  At 3:30, I have a dentist appointment ~ we are planning to walk there and back together for some cardio.  More walking for me, even though I would lovvve to run it.

I am also crossing off some major wedding tasks over break.  More on that later!
