I'm back!

but only for a few days..... what with going to Cancun for the next week and all.
I am completely unable to focus and I started packing like... last week.  Granted everything is basically unpacked because I had to use most of what was in there for this week.  It is what is.
Taking a break was much needed!  I had lots of other things that took my time away but I'm excited to start writing again!  

I have now lost 29lbs!  I know it's ridiculous.  It feels amazing and I am so happy!  Especially when I got size 12 pants for my birthday in June and yesterday I went to the mall and tried on a size 6 pair of jeans and they fit perfectly! Ah.........
Someone cut off his luscious locks!  Can't say that I mind.... :)  He looks so handsome!  Thanks Justin... I love you!
 He wanted to try out a mullet first.... hahahaha oh my goodness we were all dying!
 Before and After!  He misses his long hair already.  But he did it for me and I am truly grateful.

Early last week I was debating on whether or not I should put up Christmas since we were going to be gone for almost half the month anyway.  Then Justin said how nice it would be to come home with everything all festive and decorated..... that definitely made me decide to do it!  I'm so glad I did!  I love Christmas!  Even though we were a little late putting it up, I still think we have had plenty of time to enjoy it.
  Looking at Netflix I found a "movie" called Fireplace in your home.  Turns out... it's just a recording of a fireplace with all the crackles and noises it makes!  We pretend it brings in warmth and get all comfy-cozy!
I can't believe we leave on vacation in two days!  One big thing I'm missing is Ariel's and Kalinja's Nutcracker performance.  We have gone every year.... All of us girls have all been in it but Ariel and Kalinja have stuck with it all this time and they are both so fabulous!  I regret that I am going to miss it.... they are going to be so amazing!  If you live in Utah and want to see Utah Regional Ballet's rendition of the Nutcracker please go!  You will be glad you did!  It's at the new Covey Center for the Arts down in Provo.  It's quite the amazing Christmas tradition for sure.

Happy Holidays everyone!

I cannot even get over this post. First of all, you are amazing. I am so proud of you for sticking to your goal. I bet the Cancun trip will be the best reward for all your weight loss. You are going to look hot on the beach. I can't wait to see all your pictures of the beach. Also, tell Justin he looks amazing with short hair!!!
