And the worst part was...

...it only lasted 24 hours!

I hope eveyone had a very merry Christmas...I did :) I have to openly admit that I was a bit spoiled, which I am not going to complain for ONE second about...


I got the KitchenAid Waffle Baker I wanted - and we made them for dinner last night and it is SOOO wicked cool. It was nice to make 2 at once...so when Nathan and I eat them, they are both still hot. I need to try a different recipie though - the one I used was ok, but not as good as a Belgian Waffle could be. Mom & Dad also gave me a beautiful iron cookbook stand and a 'Cooking for 2' cookbook. Thanks guys!




Nathan got me the Nike +.... which is the cool little sensor that snaps in the sole of your shoe and then communicated with your nano to track how long and how fast you've run, as well as calories burned, etc. I didn't expect it at all but I am so excited to use it! I needed to get new running shoes that were compatible with the Nike + iPod stuff, which was ok because it was about time for new running shoes anyway. I decided that I am going to try and run a marathon in May...not sure if I'll be all the way up to 26 miles...but I want to set the goal and if I can only do a 5K I'll still be happy. I used to run A LOT in Jr High and High School - I need to get back into the habit...it will help me lose some weight and relieve some stress too :)




Nathan's brother and his wife and kids gave me a book that seems to sum up my life as of late:



What do ya think?? I haven't started it, but when I do (hopefully tonight) I'll let you know.

I also got spoiled for my B'Day. Nathan got me a TOM BRADY JERSEY!!! Which is super exciting...now I can support my team in BODY and SPIRIT. I also got some $$ which I used to get my new Nike running shoes and a nice running jacket. When we went down to Nathan's brother's house for Christmas dinner they also made a big deal out of my B'Day which made me feel so good :) They gave me a pretty heart bolero necklace, sang Happy Birthday and Gina made an incredible German Chocolate Cake (which lacked some walnuts in the frosting thanks to Timothy...hehe). I also got a dark chocolate layer cake at my parent's place Christmas night for the Big Day.

And Nathan was not left wanting either...he got a new mic for his sound stuff, some awesome vintage shirts, a svelte Frank Sintra-esk hat, new batteries for his pocket watches, funky Jazz slippers and a fun game.

Hey there were close to 4 whole walnuts and one whole pecan (I added that w/o Gina looking) in the frosting. :) We are glad that you guys had a good time on the 25th.
