Home For the Holidays

Well the holidays are over. I hope you guys had a great holiday season. I spent my Christmas and New Years in Indiana. Yep cold ass, snow covered Indiana. It had been a few years since we had been home for Christmas so we decided to go. We arrived Christmas eve and left New Year's day. It didn't snow until the day after Christmas but after that I don't think it ever stopped. Talk about luck. 

Day 3 of my vacation

Aside from the snow we actually enjoyed ourselves. We got to see all of our family and spend time with them. I got to see my little sister who I missed like crazy. If I could I would kidnap her and have her live with me, but she still needs to finish high school. We house hopped from one side of the town to the other.  I ate lots of good food. For you fellow Fort Wayners I ate ice cream at Atz for the first time. It only took almost 27 years. While we were in town my husband and I celebrated our second wedding anniversary.  We had fancy drinks and a delicious dinner.  If you haven't eaten at Club Soda you should. It's delicious! We had duck confit, my favorite, along with some yummy cocktails. 

As much as I love my family I just can't stay in Fort Wayne for too long. If you have been to Indiana in the winter you know there is nothing to do.  After nine days of family and friends it was time to go back to Texas and see my dogs (they were on an extended sleep over at a friends house). We got back to our house to discover that my husband had turned off the heat instead of just turning it down. Well it's been cold here in Texas and inside our house was about 55 degrees. We turned the heat up but it's still cold. Damn these tile floors!! At this moment I am sitting in front of a space heater in sweats with gloves on (I did have a hat on but took it off). Rob says it's not that cold but I'm freezing.

As much as I miss my family I am happy to be home. Now I have to get back into to work mode. Tomorrow I go back to working on people's teeth. Yay! Also back to the gym to drop the pounds I gained.  Double yay..


  1. Glad you had a good holiday. You are spoiled by the California weather I think. That last pic is too cute :)

    1. I know! I can't handle the cold anymore. Thanks! Rob thought it was hilarious.
