Random Wednesday + GIVEAWAY

Wednesday, December 19, 2012

Happy Wednesday everyone!
I am so happy to have participated in the blogger day of silence for Sandy Hook. My thoughts and prayers continue for everyone involved.
Now onto some randos.
Rando #1
This is my first Christmas as a married woman. That means this is my first Christmas not being with my family on Christmas day. My family in generous enough to make the trek to Dallas and spend this  weekend with Chris and I.. I will be reunited with them on the 27th as I am flying to Colorado to ski with them. I lu-hhuvvv skiing and thanks to my wonderful hubby, he is letting me go bust my booty dominate on the slopes while he has to stay back and work. He sure is a keeper!
Rando #2
Why was it 75 today and we are a week away from Christmas. Seriously Texas? Whyyyy?
Rando #3
I have a HUGE announcement as to what my new year's resolution is. Like it is almost life changing huge! I will be revealing it Monday...the last day of 2012. Where has the year gone?!
Rando #4
My neck hurts more than anything else on my body because of the Jog'r Egg Nog'r. Some people I work with told me it was because of the impact of running and keeping my head up. Ow-to-the-freaking-chhhh! I have been sleeping an a heating pad for three days now and I still can't turn left or right. No bueno. I know I shouldn't complain, but it is for-rizzle hurting!
Rando #5
I am cherishing these passed couple days of waking up with Chris still in bed. He has M-W off this week. Normally I wake up - ehhh barley open one eye and somehow sound the words "I love you. Have a great day. Don't forget your lunch!" - so waking up with him in the mornings and being able to have him here while I get ready for work is something I reallyyyy like. Morning times with your love are the sweetest. I love peeking in the bed and seeing him gape-mouthed without a care in the world. Ohhh, sweet sleeping husband.
Rando #6
Chris and I celebrated our 6 month wedding anniversary on Sunday at the Melting Pot. What, you don't celebrate your half-year anniversary?! Come'n people! Any excuse to go out for a nice dinner is fine in my book! If you follow me in Instagram {@sarahtuckerup} you got to witness the deliciousness as it was happening. Why is fondue so tasty?! I got to wear my new necklace that I got for under $10 from shoplately.com!
