Aloha Flashback Friendship Uncorked Friday

Anyway back to biz!  The other day Glitterbabe & I had our annual holiday brunch together, but she mentioned that I had lost weight since she seen me last & I didn't realize how noticeable it is, but actually I'm going to let you make the decision.Photobucket

So what do you think?  WOO HOO!!!!  By the way I lost 46 lbs. so far since last year and still workin' at it.  So did my buddy Steph too by the way.  She's such a sweetie, and check out her glasses she glitterfied them all by herself!  Aren't they the best???  I love them.  DO MINE GLITTERGIRL!!!

Question Of The Week: 
What are your favorite holiday traditions?  Well, I guess mine is that I Christmas clean then Spring Clean then my infamous decorating because I really take a lot of pride in it.  Although not as much has gone up in the last couple years.  Since I was diagnosed with Spinal Stenosis I just don't get around like I use too, but the kids & hubby tries to help, but when I'm all alone down it comes & then mama puts it back up her way! shhhhh  Then of course there's this thing my daughter and I have with the gift situation.  My Mom use to cry over every gift --oooooo I love this boo hoo boo hoo & we all laughed "THERE SHE GOES AGAIN". LOL So, now it's between me & the four kids.  Once in a while one of does and we're all laughing again, and of course I make the stuffing because my daughter loves it so much.  I think this year my son & I will be going to midnight mass again because he has moved back to the neighborhood & we can go together like we use too.  That will really make me happy.

Question this week:   Are you a peaker?  Come on you know what I mean?

Okay, I must confess when I was a kid I use to try and peek every chance I could, but mom & dad always put out most of the presents after Santa came, but if I found a few I'd try unless it started to rip then I put it down and covered it up with everything I could.  ~snicker~  Now?  Nope!  Mainly because Dave doesn't wrap nothing up until Christmas Eve or morning for pity sakes.  I'd tell him let's get up it's Christmas -- open presents.  Ohhhhhhhhhh crap he'd say... okay make me some coffee I'll be right back & 45 minutes to an hour later and after... "Marie, where's the paper?  Marie, where's the tape?... Oh, and Marie, where's the scissors?  and my favorite Marie, where's the mop?  I just dropped your present!!!  HAHAHA  He's such a goober!!!

I love your blog...so Christmasy!One of my favorite traditions is taking my kids out to shop for one another & my husband. It is the one time of year that they are really considerate and kind to their siblings. All arguing stops. :) And of course creeping items into the stockings & pretending I didn't have a clue what was in there. :)

I have to admit...I AM a peaker. I just can't help it! :) I also open all of the kids in class Christmas presents to me way before Christmas.

I've been like this since I was a kid. LOL

Warning...long comment lol

OMG!! You definitely did lose a lot of weight and it shows!! WTG!! Can def. see it. So PROUD of you. I am on Nutrisystem, and this time it is taking forever to take the weight off because of inability of activity due to my back.

Had to laugh at "peeking". I have to tell you this story. My oldest son, while I was busy preparing Christmas Eve Vigilia, would take his gifts in the bathroom, open them very carefully and then rewrap. I never knew until my youngest son slipped. So the next year, I wrapped about 6 gifts containing women's clothing, with his name on the tag. I hid his real presents. The shock was too much for him. So while I was in the kitchen doing last minute preparations, he approached me and asked if I had made a mistake with his gifts. Trying to keep a straight face, said NO, like I didn't know what he had been up to. So thinking those wre his real gifts, he fessed up and during dinner, I could tell that he really thought that was what I had given him. Pay back on our children is so much fun!! lol

Oh dearest Dolly, your weight loss is DEFINITELY noticeable when you compare both of those pictures! You should be so proud of your progress :)

I know I am!

My sister and I were never peekers; even after the bomb was dropped that Santa wasn't real (which I still have a hard time grasping if we're being completely honest), we'd love going to sleep with no presents under the tree and waking up with it being filled ^.^

Of course we'd wake up EARLY and 'explore' the packages under the tree to see if we could figure out what they were. LOL
