Happy New Year!

I hope you had a very happy New Year!  After a nice long break, I'm happy to be back blogging.  Since I've been gone, I...

... Spent NYE at a party with a bunch of our friends, but sadly then spent over an hour trying to get home via public transit.
... Checked out a blow dry bar for the first time - thought they did a really good job, but I seem to get more staying power when I curl my hair myself.
... Ate my weight in cookies and candy, and then skipped a couple of gym appointments, whoopsies!
... Spent a ton of time with both my and Jeff's families, including dual Christmas morning present openings.
... Took care of my parent's dog for a couple of days, she wasn't doing so good (couldn't get up on her own!) but now is on some meds that dramatically improved her health.
... Went shopping several times but only managed to buy a six dollar tee, despite all of the Christmas cash burning a hole in my pocket.
... Sang "twin bed" on repeat at a super classy family dinner.
... Watched the Illini play in Chicago and made it on TV a couple of times.
... Went to see American Hustle and The Hobbit, and learned that you shouldn't put metal in the science oven.
... Spent a whole lot of time relaxing in my pj's, the way a successful Christmas break should be spent.

I hope you had a good one!
