On to New Years.....

Sorry I’ve been MIA from the blog dolls. I was stricken by deathly sickness on Christmas (and by that I mean I got a cold). I was feeling a little coughy on Friday and no sooner had I opened my mouth to say that my superior immune system had kicked this cold’s booty did I go downhill – FAST! Anyway, I’m currently back to work – chugging down the Dayquil and warning everyone who gets 10 feet from my office that if they value breathing through their nose at all, they might not want to come in.

Christmas at our house was fabulous. From the Christmas Eve party at my parents to Christmas day spent watching movies and eating way too much chocolate to our annual full day of post-Christmas shopping in Charleston yesterday, it was perfect. I’ve been catching up on blogs all weekend and reading all the awesome gifts exchanged and activities everyone’s been up to. I’m so glad not everyone was a blog slacker like me – it’s kept me very entertained! I love reading about other people’s holiday traditions. Below are some pics from my holiday.

Christmas Eve

Christmas Morning
Shrimp for the Lowcountry Boil

Oreo Truffles that Shannon made - A recipe we totally stole from Molly's Blog. Yum!

Can you say, date with the gym later?!

Me & my mom on Christmas

Shannon, Dad & Me

Goofing off at Grandmas

Sorry…There were no pictures taken from the Charleston trip because, I basically looked like death and no one wants to see that. Tell me about your Christmas! What’s everyone doing for New Years Eve?!

Oreo truffles are "amazeballs"!! So glad you guys gave them a try - hope they didn't disappoint!! You and your sissy are seriously like supermodels, please tell me you regularly do commercials for Revlon or something, because you should. Glad to see you had a great Xmas (despite being sick).

My sister made oreo truffles as well and I just couldn't stop eating them. I told myself the faster they were the gone, the sooner I would stop.
