Well hello people! How was your Christmas? Did Santa bring you everything you wanted?
Seems like forever since I posted but it was only 4 days. Had a nice time at our Christmas luncheon on Wednesday. I ate more then usual but everything was sooo good. Attended the graduation for Dave and that went nicely. I was a little emotional (per usual) and was laughing and crying throughout the ceremony. He asked me to "pin" him which meant I had to go up in front of a 100+ people and place a pin on his tie. My hands were shaking but I did okay. He said a lovely speech and started to choke up when talking about how much my support has meant to him. I was practically sobbing! We went to get a bite to eat with his BF Ed and then went to my place.
On Christmas eve, my mom and I went to see oVo in San Francisco. We have seen quite a few of the different Cirque Du Soleil shows in SF and Las Vegas. It has become a new tradition for us. They are pretty expensive but I think they are worth it. My only complaint for this particular performance was that there was a pole in our line of sight for one of the acts but other then that it was wonderful! We spent the night at the Marriott at Fisherman's Wharf and got up on Friday and drove home. I left my mom's house about 2:00 p.m. and came home and hung out with Dave for the rest of the day. We watched movies and relaxed which was much needed.
Saturday we got together with my extended family and Dave came along! I have been with Dave for 4 years and this was the first time he and my mother have met AND he met my Aunt and cousins too. There was 12 of us all together. Everyone seemed to like him and my mom kept saying how nice it was to finally meet him.
Yesterday I was in motivation mode for some odd reason. I cleaned out my trunk, went through my closet and color coordinated all my clothes. Went through my jewelery box and ditched some of it and I also cleaned up some silver jewelery and pendants that came out wonderful. It's like having brand new stuff! Also watched a few movies including Up, Julie & Julia, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince and Hangover.
I got on the scale and it said I was 258 which means I am only up 1 lb. for the holidays. We will see if it sticks for Wednesday but that was pretty encouraging. I tried to be mindful of what I was putting in my mouth but I did indulge more then I have been.
It is really quiet at work today. I am working all this week but I think they will let us go home early on Thursday but I won't bank on it. I don't really have plans for New Year's Eve. I imagine I will go to the Can't Say for at least a little while. It is Dave and my anniversary so we will see. I think that is about it for now. I don't have my bodybugg on today but I am back on plan. Until next time...
