Christmas Catch-Up

Ok, full disclosure - this post is just going to be a bunch of pictures of my Monkey, and a couple more pictures just for fun.

Me and Niece #1
Me and Niece #2
This is how Monkey arrived at Grandma and Grandpa's house.  How freakin' cute is that coat?!
Monkey in her pretty Christmas dress.
My sweet brother bought this for me for Christmas.  
Naturally, I filled it with his favorite dessert, Taffy Apple Salad.
Me and my Monkey!!
She was looking at her daddy, and posing for a picture.  I just think the look on her face is priceless!
Well, that's it for now.  I'll spare you the 354 other pictures I took that night, and the hours of video.  You're welcome.

Little side note - naturally, the first places I always lose weight are my face and breasts.  The face thing I like, since people then think I've lost more than I have.  The boob thing, not so much.  They were already saggin' to my knees (sorry, boys!) and now they're really bad.  Although, I am VERY happy that I can get back into some of my favorite Victoria's Secret bras that haven't fit me in years.  Yay!  I've been saying I was going to get a breast lift for at least 15 years now.  Sadly, until I get a job, that's just going to be a far-off dream.  In the meantime, I'll just let Victoria hold them in place.

Anyway, where I was really going with this is that now my chin is back to being what we refer to in our family as the "chin of sin."  We all have the same pointy chin, which I noticed when I was looking at the pictures of myself with my three beautiful nieces.  Monkey's doesn't really show yet, but it's only a matter of time. =)

Well, I think you're beautiful, pointy chin and all. If there hadn't been two pictures with one person in both, I wouldn't have been able to tell who was the niece and who was the aunt!

I love your face and that chin of sin.
So, what does your chin do that is so bad anyway???? :)
You look awesome as well as your gorgeous nieces.
That monkey? I can almost see her in "Toddlers in Tiaras" one day. Tell your brother to start saving his money for the wardrobe! :)

DysFUNctional Mom said...

Taffy apple salad recipe needed immediately! I have the same boob problem...maybe we could get a 4 for 2 special lift together! Ha! :) YOu look great. Keep up the good fight! And the Christmas dress? Forget it! LOve me some tulle!

Maria said...

In our family, it is referred to as "that lastname witch chin." ALL of my sisters have it too. Yours is far less pointy than mine....

I was just going to say that I can see you've lost weight! Well done - I'll look at your new blog next - but just remember that it's the holiday season, so if you're still losing during this time of year, you are bound to keep it up and succeed with your overall goal. You can do it - and congratulations on making the commitment and joining the gym! Happy New Year to you, Magnum and Stud!

Do you know, I didn't notice the "chinny" resemblance until you pointed it out? :-)Congrats on the weight loss, though!

You look freakin' awesome and I can't believe all the weight you've lost!!! And that dress on Monkey? The Best EVER. So cute!
