Good morning all! So sorry I have been MIA. Things are still crazy at work and home for me. Had a great Thanksgiving. WE had a fabulous time in CO! The cabin we rented was amazing. Truly on the edge of the mountain. Best view ever. We could see Keystone ski trails, lake Dillon and all of Silverthorne! LOVED IT! I ate all week. No down day at all since Sunday the 24th! OH MY! Today is a Down Day for me! I haven't weighed yet. Truly afraid to. OH WELL! We ate, We drank, we had a great time!

The girls all loved Black Friday shopping. We had a 8 year old, 10 year old, 12 year old, 17 year old and 3 OLD LADIES ! Those crazy girls had us out there form 8:00 a.m. till 5:00 p.m. MAN was I tired! LOL

Hope you all are doing well. I have missed you.
Thanks for all the wonder Thanksgiving wishes!!!!!! Take care all!

It sounds idyllic, and your FB pics were so beautiful! What a lovely place to spend the holiday. And I'll bet that shopping day with the girls was a blast!

THanks to all!

Well I weighed in. 168.6 I have had tummy issues since the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. I do believe those issues helped me! With my Celiac, I am used to issue. I will give it another week or so and see if it stops. If not, I may see the DR. I don't feel bad, just bathroom issue. When I need to go, I have to be where I can! TMI, I know! SORRY!

Nice weigh-in! Not-so-nice tummy issues! I hope it clears itself up by itself.

Hi Monica!

How are those tummy issues? Did they clear up?

I passed on Black Friday shopping, but it sounds like you had a great time. Shopping for 9 hours would have done me in...I am not a shopper!

You know, I don't mind shopping, but this was a bit much! I do believe, if you combine all the time, I was in CLAIRE'S FOR 2 1/2 hours total! One of the little girls decided to get her ears pierced. That seemed to take forever. It was all good. The girls had a BLAST! That is what matters.

Back in the grind of things! Doing my set rotations. MWF Up days, TTH down days, then pick either Sa/Su for a DD. THis week, it will be Saturday! Celebrating Christmas with my DH's family on Sunday. Food/Wine/Presents. What's not to love? We are doing a soup and snacks thing. LOVE THAT too!

I love your rotations! I did MWF DD's for awhile but I found myself loathing Mondays and then having two weekend up days...was a complete stall. I like that you can adjust your weekend DD to fit around whatever activities are going on...I may just have to try that myself!

Hope you're feeling lots better!

No weather issues here. Just cold! We didnt' get sleet or snow. This morning it was 13* and with the wind chill, probably 0*

Blonde, you have to figure out what works best for you. I have been doing JUDDD for 1 1/2 years, so I switched it up to see what would happen. If I want these last 10 or so pounds gone though, I think I will have to stick to strict rotations EOD. I don't want them gone that bad.

Busy weekend for us. CHaperoning a middle school dance, Debate Judges for the High School, finishing up the few things I still need for gifts, then I plan to wrap. Sunday we are doing Christmas with my DH's family as I mentioned. Calling for 1-3 inches of snow Saturday night. I LOVE SNOW!

I'm still waiting to see another picture of you sitting and freezing your buns off in a house made of snow like last year. Brrrrrr! I'm missing it this time of year.

We don't have enough snow for that Carol! We honestly have NO snow for DD12 to make a fort! While we were in CO, there wasn't that much snow either. Maybe 6 inches!

Meg - great seeing you girl!

Had a great weekend. Shopping is all done. Wrapping is mostly done. Now to finish it up. DS14 Birthday is Saturday. We will celebrate Friday night as he has debate all day long on Saturday. Such is. Planning for DD's on T/Th/Su this week. Nephew graduates from College on Saturday, so we have his party to attend!

OH Carol, I plan to do some baking this week. DD12's Stuco is hosting a Cookie sale, so we have to make 4 dozen cookies for that. Then Sunday, we are having a cookie reception at church. I need to do up a batch for that too! I will see if DD12 will help me!

Starting to prep for our Cruise. I have all shopping done and wrapping is complete. I still need to do the baking! Cookies as mentioned above. I probably won't make any for our holiday celebrations. My Mom is typically really good about having a GF option. We are hosting a holiday ceramics party / birhtday party on 12/20! Might need to bake something for that.

12/24 we will be at my Mom's. We are doing appetizers for that night. I think we are making Shrimp Fried Rice and cheese ball. Christmas day Mom is leaning toward Steaks. WE all leave for our cruise 2 days after christmas, no need for TONS of leftovers!

I do need to think of options for our party!

The cruise sounds like so much fun! I hope your tummy issues resolve long before then so you can really enjoy yourself. How do you think you got glutenned? Does an tiny amount set you off? Feel better sweet friend!

Sorry you are having tummy issues! No fun there!

I had to scroll up and saw where I had missed the cruise info too! Where are you going? I've always wanted to go on a cruise. I know you will have fun!

What kind of cookies did you make? I love holiday cookies. Seems like everyone brings out the neatest varieties. One of my favorites is the S'Mores cookie. Two chocolate chip cookies made with graham crumbs, sandwiched around a marshmallow.

We are making the cookies tonight. I call them Ritz PB cookies. 2 Ritz crackers with PB in the middle, dipped in chocolate bark. Dried and perfect! Making 6 dozen of them tonight!!!!!!!

We are going on a New Year's cruise (last year we did a Christmas one). My parents and my sister are all coming with us. We port out of San Juan on 12/29 and we are stopping at:

Barbados
St Lucia
St Maarten
St Johns/Antigua
St Croix

We can't wait! After this I think we will be done with cruises for a while. We have literally taken all the 7 day US cruises to warm areas without starting to go to places again. I think next trip will be something new/different. We fly out on 12/28 at 6:10 a.m. We will spend the night in San Juan and then we get back to San Juan on 01/05. We will spend the night that night in San Juan and then fly out Monday morning. By waiting till Monday to fly out....we savesd almost $300 EACH PLANE ticket! No brainer there!!!!!!!!!!
