And along came 2012….

Wowie!  Did 2012 ever arrive at lightening speed.  I am going to provide you with some ramblings from December since I have been an absolutely, positively, atrocious blogger!  Thank god my readers are all friends and family. 🙂  After a whirl of Christmas parties and celebrations R and I had an amazing Christmas with our family.  And I don’t know how I do it year after year, but Santa always has me right at the top of his ‘nice’ list.  Here is hoping that 2012 brings us as much love and happiness as 2011 did.

Here are my random thoughts for today.

1)   I don’t believe in expectant mommy or new mommy parking.  In my opinion if you are healthy enough to have children, then you are healthy enough to walk to the door.  I have absolutely no problem parking there either, it’s not as if anyone is going to question you on it. 

2)  Chocolate croissants are like small piece of heaven that have thunked down to earth in a buttery, chocolately, icing sugary torpedo.  Straight from my lips to my hips and I don’t care.

3)  Good friends (and T just learned this lesson) always tell you if you have something in  your teeth, hanging out your nose, if you’re flying low and if you have RED WINE MOUTH.  I like to be a good friend, so check your fly and run your tongue over your teeth right now to make sure you are in the clear.  Check out this guy – Red Wine Lips! Piers Morgan With red wine staining his lips and teeth, England cricketer Freddie Flintoff leaves the Morgan Awards, held at the five star Mandarin Oriental hotel in London's swanky Knightsbridge. Flintoff attended the event with his wife, Rachel.

4)  Ollie loves the couch.  This Christmas Ollie had a bath and all his bedding was washed and he smelled really good, so we let him on the bed and the couch as a treat.  He is bliss. 

5)  Holidays mean you can eat whatever you want as long as you are ok with torturing yourself after the holidays to lose the damn weight you gained.

6)  If you cut a bunch of branches off the bottom of your Christmas tree you can fit a lot more presents under there.  It might look funny at first, but trust me, once you load the gifts under it it’s perfect.

7)  I heart Butter London Nail Polish, try it, you will too.

8)  Champagne and Orange Juice should be made the national drink for Breakfast everywhere.

9)  Fuzzy socks are the best.

10)  Boxing Day shopping should happen all year.  And if you don’t already Google promo codes for online shopping, do it.  80% of the time I find a promo code in a google search for the store I am online shopping from.

11)  FACT – I am taller than my mom.

12)  In case there are still some of you out there who do not know this, I HATE mushrooms.  I also do not enjoy, cooked carrots, baked apples, coconut, walnuts, pecans, dates, raw tomatoes, most fish and seafood (with the exception of Crab) and please don’t offer me anything with Blue Cheese.

Happy New Year All!
