This month kicked my butt emotionally, physically, mentally.
I am soooo happy it's almost over!
I did get some snuggle time in with Bella this month.
I can see a big difference in her.
She's not as mean...and she's been using the litter box.
I'm sure she misses Mom as much as we all do!
I found this Essie polish. I hate paying full price for polishes since I still receive EXCELLENT discounts from the wholesaler Mom used to purchase from!
The girls and I went for evening walks when the weather permitted it.
I won't walk in rainy or too cold weather.
We used to bundle up and enjoy walking in the cold, however, with my neck/shoulder situation that is no longer a possibility.
My Influenster Jolly VoxBox came.
There were some pretty neat items in it.
We have had some really cold, cold weather. One morning my front left door was even frozen shut.
I finally used my Birchbox points and purchased our favorite hot tea from Mighty Leaf... Chamomile Citrus.
If you haven't signed up for Birchbox, you can do it here.
I look forward to my Birchbox each month. Lately they have been so good and there's almost always one product that I favorite! I even subscribed Emil the Man's Birchbox. He loves it!
It's hard to believe my baby will no longer be a baby. In 13 days she will be 13.
I can't handle it. I need time to stop....now.
Then just a few weeks later my CC will be 18. Time really does fly.
I was looking through old pics and found this of me and my sweet friend Ebony.
She moved to NY to be with family. I miss her and our conversations so much. She's one person I can truly tell everything to and not have to worry about being judged.
She listens. And she loves. She's the best friend anyone could ask for.
While cleaning I found a box of Mom's earrings that I forgot I had.
It's always nice to find little surprises like that.
Ha...I just noticed my feet in this pic...
my feet in the last pair of shoes Mom gave me.
And of course I enjoy wearing her earrings. We certainly did have the same taste in earrings.
The girls and I have also enjoyed taking silly photos.
I really need them to stop growing up so fast.
I love that they still love to be with me and want to be with me.
I treasure every minute together with them.
My Aggies are playing the Chick-Fil-A Bowl on New Years Eve.
I'm pretty sure this is Johnny Manziel's last college game.
So my CC bought me a A&M cap to get game ready!
Abdelkrim is here visiting us. It's our annual December tradition.
And what is a visit from Ab with out playing a little Monopoly.
He assured me that he would win this time.
I certainly enjoyed beating him. He wasn't a fan of losing though.
He's a world renowned scientist.
He's made amazing achievements in cancer research.
And he can't beat me at Monopoly.
In 28 years, he's only beaten me once...last year.
