Special Delivery

by Meghann on December 11, 2009

I got my first christmas card in the mail today.



Love – Kelly, Anthony, & Oliver

When did my sister become such a grown up with her own family? I feel so behind!

Kelly had me take the family photo while everyone was together over Thanksgiving.


Cute, right?

Funny Story…. when Kelly had the photos printed at Wal-Mart they made her sign a release form. Apparently the photos ‘looked professional’ and they didn’t want to get sued. πŸ™‚

What can I say? I’m just that good!

Do you send holiday cards out? I thought about it, but have never actually executed it. Maybe next year? πŸ˜‰

Once I finally was granted access back into my work e-mail (IT had to reset my password) working from home was a breeze. I took care of a lot of things that needed to be taken care of with out ever having to leave my couch.

The best part about working from home? The casual wardrobe.


I have been rocking the mis-matched sweats and crazy hair all day. πŸ™‚

Another awesome part? The close proximately to my kitchen for snacks and lunch. πŸ™‚

Mid-morning snack: mixed nuts and cherries




Grilled cheese with snap peas, tomato, mushrooms, swiss cheese, and buffalo sauce.



Leftover rutabaga and ketchup.



Don’t wait up tonight! Derek and I are heading out to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party for a little holiday celebration. This is one of my my christmas presents and I can’t wait!

Have a great Friday everyone!

I guess you are just a beast with the camera πŸ™‚

We usually send out a Christmas card but my mom does the whole thing. I show up for the picture and that is about it.

Do you eat more than you blog about? You look really skinny!! Do you eat enough to make up for all the running you do?

18 kandkfood December 11, 2009 at 4:31 pm

I sent Christmas cards last year and it gets expensive with the stamps and cards and everything (I have a really humongous family though). I got a good response from everything but it wasn’t in the cards this year (ha!). Have fun at Disney!!

19 Anne Marie@ New Weigh of Life December 11, 2009 at 4:45 pm

Have a good time at the party! I don’t send out Christmas cards because it gets to be so expensive!

20 Casey Leigh December 11, 2009 at 5:09 pm

Love your self portrait photo. Very cute.

Your sisters holiday picture does look pretty professional.

I did send out cards for the past few years, but haven’t gotten around to it yet this year. Usually when I do send them I make sure they say “Merry Christmas AND Happy New Year!”

Have a great weekend!

21 Brittney December 11, 2009 at 5:19 pm

Have fun tonight!! πŸ™‚

22 Kelly from Bridges and Bites December 11, 2009 at 5:58 pm

My parents always sent out Christmas cards while I was growing up. I remember her addressing all those envelopes. I would love to send out cards this year, but I’m not sure if we’re going to end up doing so or not!

23 Lauren December 11, 2009 at 6:28 pm
