A fun game to play!

 So, my dear friend Pomai brought a fun and easy little game to play on Christmas with her to my house. It was a blast! It's a great ice breaker game to get everyone mingling and out of their comfort zones.  

Here is how it's played: the host gets name tags (one per person) and writes a famous person's name on it. Then, everyone at the party gets one of those name tags stuck to the BACK of their shirt. You can not ask who the person is, but you can try and guess by asking only yes or no questions. Everyone can see your name tag but cannot give you hints. 

So... we played this the other weekend and Jordan's name tag was my mom's name! Everyone else had people like Coco Channel, Ghandi, Bill Clinton and he got Lorie O'Connor! We were all dying! 
The picture below is the face Jordan made when he guessed it correct! We all had a blast! Thanks to Pomai!

I'm at the gym...

So.... since I have been on break, I have had some daily routines. Such as... sleeping in until 9:30 (or later), lunch dates with the hubs or friends, shopping until I drop, or going to the gym. The holidays are a time where I tend to put on weight. Let's face it, it's not hard to do with all the holiday drinking, eating, and wanting something sweet after a meal which becomes a hard habit to break after the holidays end. So, I really needed to get back the feel of needing a workout to be in my daily schedule. So, I did a 10 day challenge with my dear friend Baylee. We made a promise to each other to workout together for 10 days straight. No drinking and watching what we eat. 10 days later...WE DID IT! We were total gym rats. We started every workout with a warm-up on a cardio machine for about 35 mins and then doing some free weights and plyos! I didn't really see a drop in the numbers on the scale (about 3-4 lbs) but I felt it in my clothes. I could see a change in the shape of my arms and legs and yes the belly! I want to keep this up once school starts again. I will keep you posted on how that works out.  Until next time....

Resting on my break...

I have been getting lots of shut eye on my winter break so far. So much that Jordan snapped a picture of me with MY phone. Notice my mouth is open- I look like I am knocked out and dreaming happy dreams! I love having time off to catch up and relax!
