Merry Christmas everyone! I did my Fesitvus celebrations on the 23rd, as I’m sure we all did, with airing of grievances and feats of strength. I did get to the gym for leg day (narrow smith squats, kick backs, leg press, calf raises and some abs followed by 15 min on the elliptical. So that alone was my feat of strength!)
I work Christmas Eve night but I am lucky enough this year to have Christmas day off. I’ll go to church in the AM and then over to my parents’ house and have dinner with them and my brother, sister-in-law and their 4 kids! They’re the freaking cutest, especially in their Christmas jammies so I’m excited to see them and ask them what Santa brought! (Four kids 5 years old and younger. I haven’t a clue how they do it but they’re fun ages for holidays!)
I even got to swing into work late so I had a very lazy morning. I had every intention of going for a run but it was pouring all day so that got postponed. Instead I ate a yummy xmas breakfast. Gluten free waffles topped with strawberries, honey and whipped cream and hot chocolate with marshmallows. Counting calories is against the law on Christmas (eve).
Copper got to open his present first. I think he liked it! Look at that blur of a tail!
I watched How the Grinch Stole Christmas
Homegirl knows me too well! Here’s the bag it came in. 🙂
Shark earrings and a shark ornament! I swear that thing went STRAIGHT onto the tree after this picture. My not so secret santa is a dear friend and I was actually pretty excited to find out she’s the one who drew my name but to say she nailed it this year is an understatement! I’m pretty stoked.
Then it was time for carols- of course I mean the best Christmas song! Christmas Wrapping. Bah Humbug, no that’s too strong cause this is my favorite holiday…
I read Copper the Bible story. Look at his sweet face. He was truly interested.
and the only kiss under the mistletoe I’ll get this year but it’s from a boy who loves me unconditionally!! My sweet sweet dog!
Merry Christmas from Copper Mercury and me!! I hope you all have a wonderful and safe Christmas!
I’m off to work to pig out on allllll the treats I’m sure dispatch will have waiting for me.
