Happy Days :)

I went down to NYC to stay with my mom for a few days on Thursday. I packed minimally because I knew Angus would be driving down with the rest of my crap, which means I was without my computer (GASP!) for two days. I know. I don’t know how I survived with just my iPad and smart phone and my mom’s computer. It’s like it was the stone ages.

mom time, nails, and kitty cuddles.

I had a lot of fun with my mom. We went Christmas shopping and got our nails done and giggled a whole lot. I also got to babysit this little bug yesterday morning:

My niece, Eliza. She wouldn't pose for a photo but INSISTED on seeing the photo afterward.

She chooses her own outfits, can you tell? I think she’ll be a fashion icon when she’s older.

I’m now in NJ at Angus’s parents’ house. They have a farm here, so we always get to have farm fresh eggs when we visit. I guess the little chickies are just starting to lay their first ever eggs, so they’re super small with an unusually rich yolk; it was such a treat. We fried them with some very crispy and salty hashbrown cubes.

I mean…at least I’m eating whole foods right? Right???

Anyway, I just wanted to take a moment and wish everyone a happy non-end of the world and very happy holidays. My mom and I had a discussion over saying happy holidays vs. merry christmas. I was very firmly in the happy holidays camp, mostly because I feel like this is a holiday season more than just a particular day of celebration, regardless of one’s religious affiliation.

I wish I were one of those people who could give “tips” on how to keep living healthily during the month of December, but I’m not, mostly because I fail to follow them. I’m just enjoying myself and trying to be restful. I hope you all are taking care of yourselves, too.

    I would say, Yummy Holidays to you. For many reasons, 2012 has been a topsy-turvy year but I am exceediingly thankful for one special thing…..that you began your whimsical, wonderful, smart blog, regardless of how many times it comes to us. Can’t wait to see you on the 6th where there will be a lot of treats so start exercising. xxxooo (What super photos…love the red.)

  5. Enjoy the time with your family :)
    Wow Angus’ parents have a farm! That’s so cool. I wonder if free range chicken eggs taste any different from the conventional ones?

  6. I’m so glad to hear you’re having a happy holiday! And yeah, I’ve given up on being healthy this month. But, at the risk of being cliche, January I’m getting back on track!

    Oh gosh I am the same way during the holidays – I am much much more relaxed in terms of running and eating habbits, but it only comes around once a year ;)

    I’m also very much in the “Happy Holidays” camp – you don’t know who celebrates Christmas and who celebrates something else!
