A boxed wine dispenser. It was probably one of the best and worst things I could have had in my house. So winter started, Christmas came and New Years arrived right on time.
We had a few more snow storms. I stopped taking pictures after the third one. Well, I would take pics, send to my BFF and include the revolver emoji. We had a polar vortex where the highs temps would be in the single digits. I once went to the gym in the morning and it was 3 degrees. Our birthdays rolled around (the hubs and I are a day apart, plus some years). My parents kept H for the weekend. We spent a night in the city and I spent the rest of the weekend in the city with my sister and one of her friends.
AdvoCare 24-Day Challenge starting on Presidents' weekend. I made it seven days without wine, but got back on track. I was thrilled with my results. I became an avid gym goer (yea, even when it was 7 degrees and lower) and cleaned up my diet. I lost seven lbs and wanted to lose 20 overnight. More on the challenge later ... separate post.
And then we went to Las Vegas. I lived there for almost 11 years before moving back to PA. There is a reason wine is the first pic.
Harlow got to see her first boyfriend again. The last time she saw him, she was the age he is in the photo.
We hired one of Harlow's old babysitters and went on a date. As we were sitting outside, we saw the sitter walking the property with Harlow and we got up, ducked and ran into the hotel creating quite the stir among those outside. Whoops. But if H saw us, it wouldn't have been good.
This kid just cracks me up sometimes.
And then we threw my mother-in-law an 80th birthday party. And this little one had fun.
And the few lbs that I lost on the 24-Day Challenge were put back on by now. But I am currently doing another round and am having great results. More to come on that.
I spent the next two weekends in New Jersey visiting a long-time friend and we drank three bottles of wine and played dress up.
And that is where I've been. Springtime in the northeast makes the crazy, insane winter almost worth it. Almost, but not quite. It is absolutely beautiful in PA right now and I am soaking up every second before the hazy, hot and humid days of summer take over.
I will be blogging more often since it doesn't take much time and my memory needs it! Blogs are a great way to journal your life and something I've always enjoyed. So, welcome back if you are still here.
