Happy Holidays everyone! I know it’s not officially Christmas or anything yet but I’ve been getting in the festive mood! The tree has been up for a couple of weeks and lights are out in front of the house. Haven’t done all of my shopping yet but I’m working on that..I typically do it pretty last minute LOL! But the last week I’ve been a cookie baking machine! It took me awhile to get motivated to do it this year but once I get going, it’s hard to stop me! So far I’ve made lemon thumbprints, pecan balls, candy cane cookies, sugar cookies and gingerbread boys. I might make some other kinds too. I still have more sugar cookies to make and decorate and have to decorate all of the gingerbread boys. It’s a lot of work! But I actually enjoy it, it’s the only time of year that I bake like this. I give cookies away as gifts to friends and family and everyone always loves them : ) I won’t lie, I eat some of them too but this year I am not letting it get out of control! Gingerbread cookies are my favorite and I make low fat ones so they aren’t too terrible but I could easily put down several in one sitting. Hahaha I could probably eat the entire batch!
Right now I have a bra and panty set up for auction to benefit my fund for homeless animals! I hope it sells for lots of money! Take a look please! To learn more about my fund, please read my previous blog post! http://www.abibids.com/index.php/page,AuctionDetails/pid,38014
Other than cookie baking, I’ve been hitting the gym hard…haha the two seem very ironic together don’t they? I’ve been working with a personal trainer and also doing all of the classes that I normally do. I’ve had to cut back on Zumba b/c of the high impact and my knees but should be back into full gear soon. One of my goals for 2012 is to be in the best shape of my life, let’s see if I can do it!
Have a great week and don’t stress too much about the holidays! XOXO
