I got my box of 12 gifts from my new friend and swap buddy over at The Fat Mom blog. (BTW, I think it should be "The Beautiful Mom" blog or "The Marvelous Mom" blog because those are more fitting word, imho). I was so excited to take them all out of the box and here they are:
So I had to sing the 12 days of Christmas and open the first gift today and here it is - this cool recipe book:
And I have some more fabulous news... The hubs got next week off and we are going to Utah for Christmas!! I am so thrilled. For those of you who follow my blog, you may recall that we were going to Utah a few months ago for a reunion but BOTH our vehicles died and forced us to cancel our trip. I really miss my sister and brother that live there and we are way excited to go. I've got so much to do until we leave but it's all happy, fun stuff. And now, I need to put a plan in motion to stay ON PLAN for this trip and be prepared. I think I'll be making a ton of my knox blox to get me through the tempting sweets... that's been working really good for me.
I would also like to express my gratitude for those who read and have commented on our blog. I am always touched by the kind words of encouragement and how you so often share my joy as well. I have not always felt open to give hugs because I felt that no one would want to hug a heavy person... but I love to hug and would give you each a big hug if I could. Stay Strong! Stay focussed. Be Prepared! (gotta stick that Boy Scout motto in). Life is Good! XOXO ~Margene
