Hi friends. Yes I exist. I can’t tell you how many times I told myself I needed to write a post and go figure I found others things to do instead. But with it being Christmas in (oh my gosh) 3 days, I think it’s safe to say we have all been a little busy.

So I thought to catch you up on what’s been going on, I would do a photo dump of a post. It’s more fun to look at pictures rather than listen to me talk, or read for that matter.

So let’s go back.

I made a very heartfelt post on Instagram the other day after I had posted this picture of a sushi dinner out with Matt.

Yes I know it is a lot of food. And yes, we did eat it all. I got a lot of comments of “oh my gosh how can you eat so much and stay skinny?” A few thoughts ran through my mind when these comments were made. One was “am I eating too much?” And then I really thought about it. I eat to enjoy food and to enjoy the moments. And I also work hard to be able to eat these meals on occasion. (and in reality, this isn’t that much food, Matt and I split this and let’s be real, I’ve eaten more) I am a firm believe in a healthy balanced lifestyle and sometimes that means one more glass of wine than I should probably have, but it also means staying on track with my fitness. So in response I made this post.

I do work hard so I can play hard.  My post basically said this was me the day after my big meal out and this is why I feel no guilt or even think twice about having a big meal. I can’t say I believe in the 80/20 rule, I just believe in living life and being healthy. And for me that’s eating clean and being active. And if I have a dinner out, I don’t even give it a second thought. It’s all about the moment, and this sushi dinner and a date with my husband. That’s what it was about. I could basically ramble forever, but basically my point is, think about your comments  before you say them. I know the comments were not made to be hurtful, but you never know how someone may interpret them.

On to more fun things.

Like puppies in boxes. Work has been a little crazy lately, but I swear puppies make everything better.

Other things that make everything better?
All the chocolate.

Yes, I wish the weather was more Christmas spirit like, but when it’s nice enough for me to walk everywhere on my day off…

Something else that makes me a happy girl?

My mornings with my husband.

So to my fellow wives and girlfriends, I know we always love our significant others, but do you ever go through times when you really love them? Does that make sense? I always love Matt, but I go through these times where I am just so deeply in love with him. And I love it. Too much love? Never.

(side note about this picture. this may be why i love this man so much. i had to rush out because matt had to get to work but we wanted to get coffee and breakfast, so i had no make up on, and one of the first things out of his mouth was “you are so beautiful” and i know he meant it.)

Maybe it’s because he takes awkward kissy selfies with me with public.

And he buys me wine.
