Just the 3 of us!

Hey friends! I am finally back...back to blogging (YAY) back to work (BOOO) and back to reality in general. I spent part of the morning already catching up on your lives...glad to see you all had a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year!

Having the past 11 days off with Sean and Remi was such a blessing!! I am so SO incredibly thankful for that time we had together! Our busy schedules just don't allow for us to have this together time as much as I would like, so I definitely soaked up every second of it up!!

Remi was loving having her mom and dad home and not being kenneled! She got lots of walks which also gave Sean and I quiet time together....SO in LOVE!

She got to go on a lot of car rides, which she gets so excited about! And she got Lots and LOTS of love and cuddles!

New Years was also great...Sean wasn't feeling the best so we decided to stay home and have a low key night together. We tried out a new stuffed mushroom recipe which turned out delicious, grilled some steaks, and cuddled in together to ring in the New Year...I wouldn't have had it any other way!

This past week has really opened my eyes to how blessed I am and to how special time is. You will never have enough money no matter how much you work...time with my family is the most important thing. Time to relax, cuddle, talk, fall asleep on the couch while watching TV, cook, go on walks, time to just BE together. Sean and Remi are my everything and I can't thank God enough for blessing us with this past week, I will forever be grateful for these memories!

Now that I have read about all your New Year's resolutions, I decided to share a few of mine! Let's see how far they go :)

-Eat healthier, and exercise more

-Pay off our credit card debt

-Work on not getting upset over small things. After a long day at work I sometimes let something so small as some dirty dishes get to me....I know it's not worth it, so I am going to try hard to improve this!

- Continue to grow in my Faith

- Meet some more blogging friends!

I hope you all have a wonderful day, I am off to continue catching up with you all :)

Asha said...

What a sweet and relaxing way to spend vacation! I'm totally with you on trying not to let the little things get to me. I get really drained from work too that by the time I get home I take it out on the first person I see, which is my poor hubby Daniel, haha! I'm sure he would be happy if I kept this resolution :) Good luck on your goals!
