The Weekend~

This weekend went by in a blur. Working overtime doesn't seem too bad while I'm doing it but it sure doesn't leave for much downtime or rest.

While I was at work on Friday night Cole got a lot of our housework done and decided to try his hand at baking and choose to do Ginger Molasses Cookies. They are really good.

I had plans with my friend Kim for breakfast and a little shopping so I decided to forgo my usual nap after work.

We got a few things done and with my online shopping I think I way ahead of the game. I did some Christmas baking myself since we are having Adam's party next weekend. Still have more to do but here's what I made so far.

Thumbprints, Peanut Butter & Jar Crumble Cookies, and Chocolate Chip Cookies. I'm proud to say that the baked Chocolate Chip Cookies went into the freezer so fast I didn't even get a pic-they are a weakness-not to say I didn't try a couple-lol~
That night Cole and I got an appetizer tray from M&M Meats and enjoyed some Christmas movies with our munchies and had on all the Christmas Decorations. I wish I could do this every single weekend-its the best.

On Sunday morning we headed out for our walk and man it was freezing-lots of snow had fallen during the night.
Here I am in three layers of clothing and my snow trackers on~

This was at 5:30 in the morning and people usually drive by us like were nuts.

Judging from this pic we probably are-this is the point where I'm thinking why did we bring the camera? So cold.
Had to move around to get warm~

Cole managed to warm my heart by making me a heart in the snow :)

During the walk I got so hungry and thirsty.

Cole did too~
This is right before we went to get coffee-so hot-so nice.


  1. Awe! I love your pictures. Way to go on your walk. Keep up the great progress!

  2. Hi C., It's nice to see you had a good weekend. Hummm, those cookies look great! I had my share of cookies this weekend too, at my godson's birthday party. I consciously decided not to track calories this weekend, but that was not an excuse to make poor choices. I'm proud I didn't overeat ...
    GREAT JOB on your weight loss. You go girl!
    Let's keep on moving ... Take care, Tathi

  3. Cookies look delish--- I can almost smell them through my moniter! LOL

  4. Feels good to be festive doesn't it?

    Living in Cali, I have no concept of super cold weather.

    Love the pics, very cute :-)

  5. Sounds like you had a good weekend, and a productive one too! I'm so behind....Mmmm..your baking is making me drool...can I have one?! ;p

  6. I'd love to share with you all, anytime :)

  7. Wow, baking all those cookies and having them so close by has got to be tough! I love your snow pictures. You two are so cute!!

  8. Thanks CinciMom-I put the cookies in the freezer and only take out some for Cole's lunch, too tempting-haha.
