My parents came to visit. The holiday season came and went like a flash as it always, bringing families together with joy filled hearts and laughter fill homes. This year was no different, my parents came to visit for 10 amazing days, days of spoiling for my boys of course. When Grandma and Papa are around Aaron and I don't exist to them but that's kinda how it should be when grandparents visit.

Sunday just seems like the right day to clean one's home. Possible because it's the day where you have a lot of down time but whatever the reason this is the day I choose. I turn the television shows off and put on the sounds of nature while I get to work. I can clean the house front top to bottom, then I will turn my head for two seconds and the boys will have ran through it like a hurricane!

The Holidays are over but the tree is still up. It will remain that way until the new year dawns on us which seems most appropriate for taking down the tree. A new year a new beginning. There is so much I want to do in 2013 as I feel it will be the best year yet but I will save that for another post. Right now I will soak in ever single minute left over from the holidays. 

Weight loss. As January 1st soon arrives I have given some though into my New Years Resolution. I am sure "Losing Weight" is the single more popular resolution for people all over. I am no different, I really want to lose about 20lb and I want to do it all before April so that I can step into summer with the body that I want. Today I start my journey. I have been taking little steps over the last week or so and I have managed to lose 2 pounds just my eating healthier. Now I want to implement a workout routine to get in shape.

We got the boys a Crayola Crayon Maker as part of their shared Christmas gift so since we had so much free time today I decided to bust it out of it's box and let them at it. Joshua chose Red and Purple, Lucas really wasn't up for making a decision other than Blue so I added yellow. I think they turned out really nice and the boys had fun using their multicolored crayons afterwards.

Since my mom was here last night Aaron and I decided to go on a movie date and saw "This is 40." It was scary to see how much we had in common with the characters even those we are only 27/28, sure we've been together for 7 years and married for 5 and we have packed a lot in those 5 years but I never thought we would be like that already. Part of me thinks its endearing while the other side of me thinks it's time to get our act together and start acting like a young couple again.

I am more than excited for our companies upcoming Holiday Party. It's not everyday that I get to slip into a fancy dress, do my hair and put on some makeup for an adult only night out where I get to drink wine while socializing with awesome people. I have two style idea's in mind but I have quite decided and probably wont until I go shopping. First, since the event will be held an old restored theatre now turned hall, I figure I would go classic and get a black laced dress. Then I though I could be a bit more edgie and wear a pair of skinny pants (not like the leggins in the picture, actual pants), a blingy top with a blazer and really play up the accessories. My favourite part will be the shopping of course!
