Whoops.. apparently it has been like a month. Nice to see you again ;)
Quick Recap in pictures:
It snowed on Christmas Eve!
Lucy got a giant Kong!
We had naptime.. quite similar to Christmas two years ago when we had just gotten Lucy. It did not LOOK the same though. 2010 on the left and 2012 on the right. Yeah..
Addition plans are moving along! John and his dad finished surveying the yard so that we can figure out the foundation/retaining walls and locate the driveway! Most weekends are now spent in front of the computer finalizing window locations, dimensions, etc.
We have been doing a LOT of this while we can.
We had our 4th anniversary on January 10th. I had an awesome morning run, redeemed my birthday massage Groupon, napped, made enchiladas and then we went to see Jim Gaffigan! I have always wanted to see him but could never get tickets!
For our anniversary John got me a the new ipod (since you know, with the tight budget there is really no way in heck we are getting a data plan/smart phones now)! The new ipod has a camera and I am able to get new apps! Yeah.. the excitement in my life. I signed up for instagram finally with it.... let me know who you are so I can see your pictures!
We ended the night at Sweet Frog's for some delicious yogurt. I had birthday cake yogurt with peanut butter, hot fudge, cookie dough, marshmallow and reese's cups!
I've found I really like getting up early. I feel so much more refreshed throughout the day and less tired. So even though it is probably not necessary to have that half hour- 45 minute bike in the morning, I do it anyway to push myself to get up. The weight loss aspect isn't terrible either. :)
And speaking of running... it has been SO COLD here the last week. Last Wednesday's track speed training had us running 4 miles in LESS THAN 10 DEGREES! BUT... I ran my fastest 4 miles yet (races included!) and knocked at least 3 minutes off of my 4 mile time. Crazy.
LESS THAN A MONTH TO GO!!! Plus I get to go see my favorite cousin after ;)
