BEST OF 2011!!

I admit it’s been a while…a very. long. while since I last posted and if you really want to know why…well, I’ve been lazy. I know, I know…poor excuse. But, it’s the truth. I guess you can say it’s laziness coupled with complete and utter exhaustion after a long days work coupled with this chick in my belly zapping every ounce of energy from my body coupled with…laziness. Oh, and the fact that I haven’t been feeling very blogworthy lately.

Enough about me, I have to thank you sweet girls for all of your emails and Christmas cards. It’s such a warm feeling knowing that I have such a great support group, is it okay if I call you that? I should also tell you that the baby is fine and I’ve been feeling much much better. That first tri was a mess, but I made it through and I feel a bizillion times better.

So, here we are, New Year’s Eve. While I don’t have extravaganthugefun, any plans I do plan to be with my little family and maybe pop some bottles of Martinelli’s. I love apple cider. Honestly, I haven’t even thought about new year’s resolutions. I think I shared this with you about this time last year that I don’t typically make resolutions to ring in the new year, instead I make resolutions when I’m ringing in MY new year, my birthday. So, we’ll cross that bridge when we get there. Instead of a list of New Year’s resolutions, I thought I’d do a special New Year’s Shoutout to my girls. Find your initials and read my little note to you!
