i'm still here

Yes, I am still here! Even though I have been very absent on the blogosphere for quite some time!  Nothing could have prepared me for how much of a fiasco moving into a new home could be and throw in Thanksgiving and Christmas, and I was a million different directions! Needless to say, I couldn't have made it through without red wine...L.O.T.S. of red wine.

I thought I would give you guys a run-down of what I have been up to since I last blogged!

We moved into our new house! Yay! We got the certificate of occupancy on November 15th and it was full steam ahead to get moved in before Thanksgiving.  A brand new house doesn't mean it doesn't come with it's little quirks and problems and I think it's safe to say after almost 6 weeks of people coming in and out to fix minor things, the house is perfect!

And to make things crazier, I flew up to Memphis to run in the St. Jude Half Marathon the first weekend of December.  That has to go down as one of the best races I have ever run! Such a great cause and because my team and I raised money for the hospital, we got to tour the facility the day before the race. What an amazing place!! I could seriously go on forever about this place! A very worthy cause and I urge everyone to donate whenever they can!!!



December has been a complete blur!  My daughter was out of school for two weeks so I didn't get much accomplished on the work front but I thoroughly enjoyed being home with her.  Christmas came and Santa brought her a beautiful new swingset!  Santa had a very special elf that helped him a.k.a. Daddy and I am pretty sure we are never ordering a swingset for any present ever again! Took him a week of putting it together after work and he is definitely my hero for doing so!





I joined the club and got an iPhone for Christmas and I am in love with it! I also ponied up and bought a "fancy" camera so I can take better pictures for my blog. Which means I better get back to blogging!!

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and I look forward to being back better than ever in 2012!!

Hi Jade! You have been missed. Aren't you glad that whole building/moving thing is behind you? Now comes the fun part - decorating! I'd love to know what camera you went with - I need an upgrade!

Hi Lady! Glad to hear you are doing well. I have been extremely busy myself. I started filming my show back in December and I've pretty much been nonexistent in the blog world since it started. It takes so much of my time but is so worth it. Glad you had a wonderful holiday season too. I can't wait to see pictures of your home. I know you have to be loving it. Talk to you soon. xoxo, Cristi
