Happy 2015 everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year’s! I had the best couple of weeks with my family, I am so happy. It was a great way to say good bye to and ring in 2015!

A little recap; Christmas was so wonderful! Dinner with our family turned out delicious, my hot chocolate meringue cake was a huge hit! We scarfed the entire cake down for desert. Bobby was scooping it was cutout sugar cookies…can you say sugar overload! My in-laws were really happy to see Bobby and Clara too. We had a great dinner, exchanged a few gifts, and laughed all night.

Bobby and Clara left on the 31st to go celebrate New Year’s Eve with their friends. It was sad saying good bye but I know they will be home again soon. The hubby and I stayed in on New Year’s Eve drank a little champagne and watched the ball drop on TV…if I wasn’t excited for our trip before, I am so so so excited after seeing Times Square on TV. It was the perfect New Years, simple and romantic.
I have been cleaning up the house since Bobby and Clara left. It is ridiculous how much of a mess my kids can make in such a short period of time. 🙂 On a positive note, I have gotten back into my routine, walking, biking, and watching what I am eating. I am proud of myself, I actually stuck to my goals I set before the holidays. I was able to exercise three times a week and eat fairly healthy. I think my biggest accomplishment was learning when I am satisfied after eating, instead of eating to the point of discomfort…go me! 🙂

I feel like the past couple months have flown by, we leave for New York City in TWO DAYS!! Words do not begin to describe my excitement. I started packing for myself a few days ago…and packing for my husband too; if I didn’t help him pack, he would just bring one change of clothes…men, I tell you! 🙂 I am excited to wear my new clothes I got special for the trip. I have been shopping periodically, finding good deals on “chic” NYC clothes. I figure, if I dress like I belong in New York, maybe I will just end up staying…:P Just kidding.

I know I keep saying it but these past couple months have been nothing less than extraordinary. I am so thankful for everything I have accomplished, everything my family and friends accomplished, for everyone’s positivity around me, and I am happy I’m blogging! I will miss reading some blogs that I’m following when I’m at NYC, so you shouldn’t miss them:


I know this is the time when I should share my New Year’s resolution, but my resolution is not to have a resolution. I want to keep doing what I am doing and not change anything. I am so happy with everything in my life right now, I couldn’t wish for anything more!

Happy New Year, it is going to be a good one!

Until next time,




  1. Love your new year’s attitude! Have a wonderful trip! I would most like to go to NYC to visit ‘Alice’s Tea Cup’… A bakery and they have wonderful recipes too!
    I am kicking off the new year with a visit to have my varicose veins looked at. I need to get this rolling before summer so I can be as active as I want to be!
