We took the Hum out of Bug

For Christmas this year for the first time in over 11 years it has just been Shawn and I . No kids, no family, nobody but the two of us. Trust me we aren't sad and suffering, we are enjoying every last minute of it. This means, no shopping, little cooking on my part, no traveling, no cleaning, no stress, no mess. Yeah sounds God awful doesn't it? HARDLY!
So I saw this Cafe on Another Bloggers Blog. I have been dying to try it since I go there in Wasilla.
It's called Metro Cafe, inside was empty but the LINE for the drive up was 8 cars back. We had the fireplace and leather couches all to our selves. What a treat that was.

Then as any white trash wanna be Paparazzi would do , we drove up to the Palins for a little Lookie -see. Shawn is a tad obsessed with the local celeb.
You see that fence? That is the one they had to build because of the freaky nosy neighbor. How rude to just pull up into someones...errrr uh huh.. Moving on

Ahhh the Christmas Prime Rib. My Mom and I see differently on how to cook the slab , but they both are delicious. I stab the holes and put in the garlic and sage into the holes. looks cute and oh so yummy.

So what does a girl do when she has pigged out enough for 10 pregnant women? Run and Run some more. This was the sunset over the lake I live on.
I ran a 5k early this month and will be doing one a month until August when I actually do a half marathon ! I am just that crazy ...

We went to a friends house, ate some more, sat in the hot tub and came home. Very exciting, but for us it was a much needed break of all of the stress of the move. I missed everyone, but not the drama of it all.
Happy Holidays Everyone!

I was going to call you yesterday but our day got discomboobalated. We ended up at the Community Christmas dinner at the Sports Complex. We saw several people we knew and enjoyed a nice meal.

I got a really nice set of snowshoes for Christmas and plan on using them. I have an extra pair if you want to come walk in the woods with me some time.
