OK, so I don't have any pictures to share on this post so I'll make it a short one. I know how boring it is to read a post with no pictures!
Wednesday morning we loaded the car up, picked up my parents, and headed south to Huntsville, Alabama to my grandma's house. We had a great Thanksgiving with tons of aunts, uncles, and cousins that I only get to see about every other year, and TOO much food! I think I ate more calories in those 3 days than I usually eat in a month. I gained the weight to prove it! We also got to make a trip to Birmingham to see my mom's side of the family that I haven't seen in about 3 years (since my wedding!). I even did a little Black Friday shopping, online! Amazon is the best invention ever! I got exactly what I wanted for the best price and free 3 day shipping. I bought a new camera (just a point and shoot) and some new luggage.
It was great to see everyone, but it sure did wear me out. It was about a 10 hour trip one way! And David did ALL the driving!
Even though it was really great to see everyone, I was still not in a very good mood. I was supposed to go on that trip with a baby belly and I was supposed to be sharing my excitement with my extended family for the first time. I'm not going to go on and on about depressing moments, but all I can say is that hopefully next year I will be Thankful for something. It just didn't happen this year.
So, moving on to the next...David and I are going on a cruise in 2 weeks! And the diet is on! I know I'm waiting til the last minute and Thanksgiving didn't help the situation! But I'm staying strong these next 2 weeks and I'm determined! I'm going to the gym EVERY day dang it! And I already have my meals planned out. It's crunch time! I've never had to be in a swimsuit in December before!!! Eek!
