Oh Christmas Tree,

Oh Christmas Tree!

It’s officially up! This picture is pre-ornamentation 😉 I am wearing my favorite North Face fleece and Christmas sweats that require my pulling them up constantly. But when it comes to sweatpants, the bigger the better, right?

Yesterday, the fam-damily and I ventured out to find a pair of shoes for Winter Formal next Saturday, ate a quick lunch at Whole Foods :), saw The Blind Side (highly recommended), purchased groceries, and our Xmas Tree!

twas colorful and delicious.This morning’s breakfast:

Pumpkin Cream of Wheat, seasoned with cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and stevia, topped with a chopped Fuji and an Adam’s PB spoon.

DAYUM! This bowl had volume. It took me 30 minutes to finish. Regardless, I enjoyed every bite.


Do your pictures ever lose quality once you post your post? When I upload my pictures while creating a post, they look good… then I post them, and it’s almost as if they’ve gone blurry. Any tips/suggestions?

    beautiful tree, beautiful girl! we are putting our tree up tonight, i cant wait. lol sweat pants are always baggy so i opt for leggings!

    quality of photos: blogspot or wordpress have a limit of pixels per post so the image quality decreases very easily. instead, try uploading your pictures first with a flikr account 😉 then save and upload to your post.
