Merry Christmas, Baby

Besides my computer blowing up, everything is quite well.  I had a ton of pictures to post and a lot of stories to tell, but my computer blew up.  Really.  Our computer is currently being fixed by our computer wizard friend and I hope it returns soon.  I suck at blogging via iPhone or iPad. I've  been posting over at Facebook, but for those of you not on Facebook I'll post a brief outline.


We flew up north to Monterey to celebrate my niece's wedding.

Besides attending the wedding, we spent a lot of time at the beach, which was just a short walk away.
Spending time with my favorite 9 year old!

Soon after the wedding, hubs and I celebrated an anniversary.  When we first thought of this particular anniversary, Hawaii seemed like a good place to celebrate.  The bulk of the expense that would have gone toward a Hawaiian vacation went toward getting my family (all 5 of us) to and from the wedding up north, plus hotel rooms.  Instead, we took the day off from work and  spent our wedding anniversary in our own hometown, and enjoyed perfect weather without going too far.

I'm sort of running, but very inconsistently.  I have been able to spend more time running with the track club, but I'm slacking on putting in the miles on my own. I have a half marathon in early March, so I'll get myself in gear soon and put in more weekly miles. 

I'm about to have neck issues from being on the make-shift computer area that Hubs assembled.  The monitor on a TV wall mount, and I have to look up to see what I'm entering.  I will close for now and I hope to get in one more post before the end of the year.

Happy holidays, friends!  Wishing you peace and love for the holidays and always.

Hi sweet girl...
So good to hear from you; you were on my mind and I had meant to send a card this holiday, but alas I didn't. Sorry. Definitely one of my highlights of the year was running with you in SD :).

Your niece is absolutely adorable and I love her dress. Wishing her much happiness!!

And of course I love seeing pics of you and the man :)! Happy belated anniversary to you guys. I don't blame you for spending the special day in SD; it's not a whole lot different than Hawaii really (except in June, when I visit, and it's freaking freezing!).

Merry Christmas, my friend!

Merry Christmas and happy new year to you and family.

I didn't realize you and Michael had a big anniversary. Belated best wishes. You two do not LOOK like a couple that could have been married that long. Stay young.
