Friend Makin' Mondays

Friend Makin’ Mondays: 2011 Holiday Experience

It’s the Monday after Christmas, and I don’t have much to say because I’m under the weather.  I spent Christmas Day in my pajamas and took a four hour nap in the afternoon that could have been longer.   I also took a little time to paint my nails. I can’t complain about the day, but I’m certainly looking forward getting well.

Started the day wearing this color...

Ended the day wearing this color...

This week’s topic will be short because I’m not feeling well and because I’m guessing that most of you are still traveling. But if you’re able to take part then I hope you’ll take a few minutes to tell us a little about your holiday.

If you’ve taken part in FMM then you know the rules. If you’re new, please take a moment to answer this week’s question on your own blog then add your link in the comments section here at: www.alltheweigh.com so we can all see your FMM questions and answers. Please invite your blog readers to add their links here too so everyone has to opportunity to be seen. The idea is to connect with other awesome bloggers so take a moment to post your own FMM post and comment on a couple of other posts. Now it’s time for this week’s topic!

FMM: Do you celebrate Christmas and/or Hanukkah? If so, tell us about your Holidays 2011 experience…Did you enjoy it?  Do you wish it had been different? 

Since we had the most low-key Christmas ever,  I don’t have pictures of myself to share (believe me, you wouldn’t want to see me today) I’ll share some pics of the sweets I made.  I’m proud to say that I enjoyed making them more than eating them.

Over the holiday weekend, I ate a couple of cookies and half of a slice of NY cheesecake that I made from scratch (recipe courtesy of Kelly) which seems reasonable to me.  I suppose that not being able to taste food helped curb the temptations to eat it. I did eat more while I was out of town so I plan to get back to normal today…I need to get back to the gym daily too.  Anyway, here are a few pictures of my creations.  I realize that I need to cool it with Instagram. Ha..

Sparkly tree...

Second year in a row...

Christmas Day Fun

I decorate cookies with Cal's mom in Texas last week too.

Don’t forget to come back and link up in the comments! Happy holidays and happy Monday!

    I wrote this blog piece before you had the FMM posted, so it doesn’t have that info in it.

      It’s never good to be sick, but it sucks a little more on the holidays. =)

        Thank you so much! I’ll be looking for it this week! =D And I am glad to see you are on the mend – being sick for Christmas is (& I speak from experience) a lousy way to spend the day.

          It’s a color that I got on clearance for 3 bucks last week..not sure if that means it’s discontinued or not? I hope you find it..If not, my new color by Essie is really, really similar…It’s called Bobbing for Baubles, and I LOVE it too!

            Thank you for letting me know that you got it on clearance, Kenlie (OPI for $3? what a deal!). And thank you even more for giving me a back-up color if I can’t find the OPI!!

    I’m sorry to hear you’re not feeling well; hopefully it will pass through quickly. Those cookies in your photos are so cute – almost too cute to eat!

    I wrote this post the other day, but it fits, so I hope you enjoy: http://bellaonthebeach.wordpress.com/2011/12/24/its-almost-time/

    I have never participated in Friend Makin’ Monday before, and I know it’s not Monday (I’m a few days behind!), but I thought I would contribute. I would love to make this a thing on Mondays on my blog!! Great idea!! 🙂
