Fried chicken – I can’t fry food worth anything currently…We made this, it was great!  And we ate almost all of it in one sitting-oops!

Santa Cake

Couch to 5K completion http://www.coolrunning.com/engine/2/2_3/181.shtmlStarted and then we went to the East Coast on vacation and walked so much we chose not to run each day.  Then we returned….PREGNANT.  Needless to say, my health and exercise plans have changed a ton!  Remember how last year one of my life goals was to not have any crushes starting Jan 1st and then I ended the year married to the best man in the world?  This is a similar situation!
