I am so excited that Christmas is now behind me, while I had a lot of fun this year getting gifts and celebrating Christmas with the kids, I have been in desperate need of glasses to help me at my new job. Working at the call centre has been a great experience for me but looking at a computer screen for hours a day can sure be hard on my eyes. I have broken down and begun looking for frames that I would like, seeing as I have never work glasses before it was hard for me to make this decision but after looking at the great assortment of Holiday frames available at ZenniOptical it has become a lot easier. I think I have decided on this pair of glasses which are great as they are available in my favorite color"pink" and are made from bendable titanium to ad security to me as with a busy lifestyle like mine with work and the kids I can see my glasses getting a lot of abuse and they need to be able to stand up to it all. I never thought shopping for eyeglasses would be so easy but with the great assortment and even more important great prices that are available it was a breeze for me to select a great pair for myself.

When Breigh went out to do her morning business she wasn't too sure of the snow, it took some time before she would go off the driveway onto the lawn but once she braved the cold white snow I couldn't get her to come back in the house LOL Maybe she will go out and have fun with the kids later this afternoon. :0)
I spent the morning getting some cleaning done and will try to get some rest with Blake before going to work at 3pm things are getting busy and I have been picking up quite a few extra hours which will make for a nice last pay check before Christmas!
HAVE A GREAT MONDAY!

This week is flying by.... I have been working longer shifts since Sunday which hasn't allowed much time to get things done around here. Hubby was off on Tuesday so we spent the morning Christmas shopping (picking up layaways), had lunch than came home and got a lot of Christmas wrapping done! :0) Yesterday I was off so we got our monthly grocery order done early before hubby went to work, after that I have no idea where the time went. I got Trinity off to her Dance Power class then home to get the kids in bed. The first time I got to sit back and relax all day was at 10:00pm when me and hubby curled up on the couch and watched Trinity's new DVD...."Radio City Christmas Spectacular, starring the Rockettes!" What a show!!!!!! anyway Today I have tons of things to get done, My parents and sister are coming tonight and won't be here until midnight but that is no big deal because I work tonight from 8-12 so I should be getting home the same time they arrive. I think my sister and her boyfriend and kids are coming also to visit with his parents that live near us so I'm sure that at some point this weekend it's going to get crazy! Ok I guess I should go for now I have lots of bedding to get washed and a messy house to clean.

I have been working all year on getting back to my pre kid body, it has been a challange and I must say I have a weakness for take out but I am getting pretty close to my goals looking for another 5-10 pounds but I am hitting a slow down period that is making it harder to lose weight and my biggest enemy is around my belly. I began to search for information on how I can better target my problem area and came accross information on the Flat Belly Diet. This program is designed to teach you the right foods loaded with disease fighting "good fats" to accellerate your fat burning metabolism. It's important to find the right balance of these fats with every meal to get your maximum burn.

If your interested in the program and are willing to blog about your progress with others you can be eligable for the free book. If you successfully complete the program you will be eligable for a 1 year membership to the flat belly website and could also become eligable for the "success story" club.

Here it is! I finally took a picture of our tree! We went with the blue and silver again this year because of all the extra dance costs this year I couldn't really afford to buy all new ornaments. Maybe next year we will change the colors to Burgundy and Gold????
We just got in from watching the Santa Claus Parade. It was short but that was a good thing because it was sooooo cold outside. No rain or snow but just cold. This year there was three times the cartoon characters that we had last year which was pretty exciting for the kids! I just heard from Jay a few minutes ago...they got their butts whipped again today at their basketball tournament but with any luck they will do better tomorrow!
Well that is it for now I have lots of cleaning to do and then get myself ready for hubby work Christmas party! Hope you all are having a great weekend!

I am so proud of Trinity! She has been working hard fundraising for her trip to New York next summer and Saturday she sold 4 cases of bars at hubby's work and has been collecting pop bottles for recycling. My work has been great with giving me the bottles to bring home to her and she spends her time counting and sorting the bottles to take in to the recycling depot. So far she has collected over $100 in bottles in the last month. Every little bit helps! She has fund raised over $700 for her trip since October. She's off to a great start!
