It’s been a crazy-crazy weekend here! We were finally able to celebrate Christmas with our families-- we both worked on Christmas and Christmas Eve.
On Friday we celebrated our Christmas Eve and I spent the entire day cleaning and cooking and celebrating that our families would be in the next day. Some friends and family stopped in on Christmas Eve and celebrated with us.

|Stromboli- which was by far the easiest thing I made and tasted wonderful|
Saturday was our Christmas day and we have all of our family with us except my little brother who had to work. It was beautiful to have everyone together—but it was also exhausting. I’m glad everything went well, but I do wish a magic cleaning fairy would show up and clean and de-decorate my home (and then redecorate it for Valentines Day.)
Swishy was spoiled rotten and got a new ham bone that he has been carrying around like it’s his baby since Saturday. Rob and I keep joking that he’s trying to kill us with the ham bone by leaving it on the steps and under our feet at all times.

Saturday night we went out to the casino to celebrate Rob’s best friends 40th Birthday. He had flown in from Florida so we made a point so go see him and celebrate with him even though after hosting Christmas I was much more into lying on the couch.
Being at the casino made me realize how much I have mentally aged. Not that I don’t enjoy a nice night out, but I much prefer being home. After we got home I felt like I had to shower because they are allowed to smoke in the casino and I hate smelling like cigarette smoke. I also hate spending $9 for a glass of wine… I digress we went and celebrated with his buddy and rang in his 40’s.
Sunday we went to Rob’s moms 70th birthday. She had a luncheon with all of the family and her friends. It was nice to be there with everyone and to see Rob’s mom happy. I have a bunch of pictures, but I am not going to post them until I make her album.
It was a hectic weekend to say the least. I start back to work again today and its as though I am covered with a blanket of exhaustion. I could really use a day to relax from my 3 days off. Lol.

On Friday I had the honor to guest post over at Charity’s Blog- My Guest Post- A Story of Change if you get a moment head on over to check out my dear friend Charity’s blog and read and learn a little more about me.
Tomorrow I meet with my IVF APN and go over our IVF medications and schedule. I’m getting very excited as we move forward. I’m feeling very positive and filled with hope. 2014 is going to be a beautiful year for us—I have to believe it!
