A little too much Verve Clicquot, Jack, Cuervo and Fig Vodka, which if you haven't tried, caution: it is dangerously good! I'm not one for cakes or sweets. Although I do love my sissy-in-law's struffoli:
|Yes, this plate was piled high to the top 1 day ago!|
I had help: Mini-man is my partner in crime!
And my family's La Cucidati
|Can't eat too many of these & then think you can|
run without paying some price: They are full of figs & raisins!
BUT (no pun here) ....where I can really get myself into trouble is
in the beverage department.
This year, I was pretty good - well sorta. I indulged, but kept telling myself,
"Remember, you have to run 10 miles tomorrow."
"Switch to water! DON"T let yourself down -
you need to pound out seven miles tomorrow."
I held true to myself and my goals,
which is not easy to do around the holidays.
I have another secret motivator: my stomach. I hate being doubled over in pain - although, I know some of you have been witness to this the last few days, through
The Gingerbread House Decorating Party:
|My 7-year-old nephew: Presents on the roof!|
|My 5-year-old nephew: Love that chimney!|
|Girlfriend, I love your picket fence!|
|My Niece is 22! She still enjoys making a house!|
|This one wins best outdoor patio!|
|Love the deck! Go mini-man!|
|Girlfriend loves Free People!|
Ouch, so $$$$!
|I know, it's a sad tree. |
This is what you get when you go two days before Christmas in NJ!
|Aww! They got each other presents ...on their own!|
|Mimosa's Christmas Morning|
|In the hot tub with Girlfriend!|
And through enjoying NYC: Hustle & bustle & such ...
|Sissy & her hubby!|
|Wow! Mini-man & Girlfriend are getting so mature!|
|Side-kick & Me!|
