The holiday season is in full swing and I’m trying to navigate it all. I don’t have a traditional Sensational Sunday post but I thought I’d share a few photos from the weekend.
It all started Friday when my in-laws came to babysit so we could attend The Husband’s annual Holiday Party.
I look forward to this event every year. We dress up, dance, and because we stay overnight in New Jersey, have no kids to wake up with the next day!
This year I found an awesome dress at a local department store for 19.99. I fell in love with its color and neckline.
We really had an amazing time and I was so proud of The Husband (well, really both of us) for dancing the night away.
Although I thought the blip on my Fitbit would have been a bit more impressive.
We drove home Saturday afternoon and hung out with the family. It was nice. I ended up making a big dinner for everyone and since my in-laws were still in town, The Husband and I got a little Christmas shopping in kid-less. It was nice.
This morning I snuck to the gym to practice some lifts (less than four weeks until my second CrossFit competition) and then rushed the kids to my friend’s Breakfast with Santa Party.
We had a blast.
I tried to take a selfie with the 2-year-old but made the mistake of saying, “look up!”
Which then corrected to, “No, I mean look at the camera.”
lol He cracks me up!
He was a little timid around Santa but did great overall.
I’m not a real Santa fan or pusher. The Husband calls me a scrooge but I just don’t get into all the fuss. I don’t do the mall Santa thing, I don’t hide elves, and if it was up to me, the whole gift giving thing would be much more modest.
For me the holiday is all about spending time with family. Don’t get me wrong, we have our traditions, but they are pretty low key.
Anyway, after the party we ate lunch and then honestly, I took a nap. I was EXHAUSTED!
When I woke up we set up the camera and took a few photos for the Christmas cards this year.
Someone ALWAYS needs to be reminded to smile normally.
Our family shot came out great.
Everyone was looking!
I love watching my family change over the years.

Blows my mind how time is flying.
After the family photo shoot I pulled together some leftovers for dinner and we settled in to watch the Survivor finale.
That was it. Overall, the weekend felt pretty low key. I’ve been scrambling to get Christmas cards and photo books done for presents and I finally got ahead of it.
My food journal has been a bit of a disaster since Friday but I’m committing to it tomorrow.
OK, must go. I’m up too late yet again. This sleep thing always bites me in the butt.
