I hope everyone had a great Christmas (or whatever you celebrate) and New Years! I just got back from what Jill calls my “trek across the US”. I spent four days visiting my family and friends in Missouri and then four days with my husband’s family in Dallas. I know you are jealous, I mean, who wouldn’t be.
I made a few goals for myself to follow on my trip:
1.) No blogging or reading blogs, so that I could give my full focus to my family.
2.) Drink and be merry, but NO HANGOVERS.
3.) Eat myself into no less then two food comas.
Score on all three. Here are a few photos from our trip:
Me with my brother and sister. My sister surprised me with her red/brown hair. She's normally a blonde like me!
My daughter and me hugging my in-laws two Great Pyrenees dogs. They are beautiful!
My husband and me
My daughter wanted to hold one of my in-laws baby goats. You can tell she's a city slicker.
When I got home, my Christmas gift from Jill's Holiday Gift Exchange was waiting for me!!! Quinton or "Q" as we know him, sent me two Vanilla Gingerbread GU's (to eat by the fireplace), an official Anus Cup to sip my favorite beverage from (wine from an anus mug), and not one, but TWO Christmas Thermajocks (is that REALLY what these are? I think he may be trying to make me look like an idiot, which wouldn't be hard too do).
I was a little baffled at first by the Thermajocks, I had no idea what they were.
Thumb less mittens??
Then I read his card and realized that they were the infamous thermajocks. For those who don't know, The Thermajock is used to protect the penis from cold and chafing during cold weather activities. You all didn't realize that I had one of those did you. For your convenience, I linked the website, so you can go read the testimonials from the men who have used them. You can also find them on facebook should you be so inclined.
I was also extremely pleased that he sent me an anus cup. In my previous post, I blogged about how I had found an anus plate on the web (I know!) and that I was going to send one to my blog exchange person. Amanda wanted to know if I actually sent the plate, so I wanted to let her know that no, I didn't end up buying and mailing the plate, it was too expensive and I'm way too cheap and redneckish to spend my money on fancy anus art. I sent Molly, a ponytail headband from TrailHeads instead. Boring....I know.
Anyway, thank you Q for my Christmas gifts!!! I especially loved seeing the fat ass, pleasantly plump snow man again (as well as my own fat ass!). I should have taken a picture of the card, it was so creative.
This post is getting ridiculously long, so I'll go now. Next post, I'll talk about my running (yup, starting this week!) and 2011 goals. For now, Happy New Year!
