I head off to Minnesota shortly and fingers crossed a blizzard doesn’t greet me. It’s been really mild back home until now, because, of course, the snow and cold want to make an appearance 😀 It seems like every year I worry about whether or not the weather will cooperate with me and I always make it home. I trust that tradition will hold.
Right? Seriously, 2016 was tough. 2017 was harder. Here’s hoping that 2018 gets better. I do firmly believe that as exhausted, frustrated and angry as many of us are, we remain deeply motivated and committed. What the opposition has yet to fully realize is the inherent danger of taking on women. Often underestimated and considered weak, we are so much stronger and resilient than given credit for because we had to be that way in order to survive. Get Ready — Cuz, Here We Come is my 2018 motto. Okay, this was supposed to be super cheery, fun post, not a lecture, so I’m getting off my high horse … for now.
Oh, the weather outside is frightful. Okay, not really. It’s almost 80 degrees in LA. But Christmas is definitely right around the corner. And you know what that means — CHRISTMAS TREATS! Listen, I’ve had very little sugar these past few months, which has been fabulous for my waistline, but I’m getting a little bug-eyed. My wimpy sweet tooth is ready to dive into the nearest cookie platter, whether or not it’s meant for me.
Baby, I’m back! That’s right. Tanya read last month. Yes, she did. I mean, I didn’t go cray, cray and read a 100 books or anything. But unlike last month, I didn’t whine and pout and wait until the eve before my favorite link-up to finally crack open a new-to-me book. Nope. I waited until the week or two before … errr … just kidding … sort of.
I had such a difficult time this year picking my holiday treat. My get healthy journey is going good so I didn’t want to do anything that might derail my efforts. Or willpower. My willpower can be iffy or moody or finicky. At the same time, it didn’t feel right to not share a holiday treat either. After much consideration (seriously, I spent hours on Pinterest) I ultimately craved a cookie. And not an ordinary, boring cookie but the perfect ying yang cookie.
It seemed like an appropriate time for me to do another Three Things post since my last one was a year ago. Plus, I also had nothing else planned for today and I was in the mood for something light and sentimental. Funny how things work that way, right? Anyway, without further ado, three more things about me with a holiday flair.
