Hope you all had a Merry Christmas!  Ours was a lot of fun :)  Our nieces and nephew presented us with personalized Michigan aprons since my hubby does an amazing bbq and I supply everyone's favorite desserts throughout the year.
"Uncle Pat" and "Aunt Rosie" - Great gifts!!

Christmas Eve was spent at my sister's for Murphy Family Christmas - just my immediate family.  It was a lot of fun and hilarious as we tried to take a family picture in front of the tree - but ended up completely blocking it out :) you can kind of see the top of her tree coming out of my head...
Christmas Day was a fun time with family and today, my husband and I slept in past noon!  That's almost 12 hours of sleep :)  No better way to start off two weeks of vacation!

It was a very lazy day until my husband had to go to work and I took our boys out for a quick couple of miles.  They're lazy dogs, but can handle 2-3 miles at a time.  We're having a mild winter so far in Michigan, and Jake, Dex and I enjoyed our 40-degree run mid-afternoon.  Plus, I got the chance to try out the I-Fitness belt I won from Jeff at Detroit Runner and I love it so far.
I took my license, credit card, cell phone and house key and had plenty of space to spare.  It didn't move or bounce and actually kept the contents dry inside.  I can't wait to try it on a longer run soon. 

When we got home, I purchased some Smart Wool running socks online with a gift card and can't wait for them to get here to try them out!

Now all I have to do is find something to fill my time in the next two weeks before I go back to work on January 9th....  Good problem to have :)   Any suggestions?


  1. iFitness belt! how awesome!!

    i've beem thinking of making the jump to one of those for a while especially since they have a handy dandy slot for gu's. cant wait to hear how much you like it!

  2. Yeah, it does look like a nice belt. I wish I has all that time off - I'm jealous! Enjoy!

  3. Two weeks before you go back to work??? I'm so jealous...I got one day off for the holiday :(

    Sounds like a great Christmas!
