Jammies and Christmas Cards and the Pool, maybe

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  I've been a little quiet on the blog this week because I've been feeling a little down, and just didn't have much to say.  You guys know what I'm talking about!!

The good news is, I stuffed myself silly yesterday, and wrote in big letters on top of my journal, "Today is a New Day."  I just love that feeling of starting fresh each day.  It makes the day have so much potential.

As far as my day goes, I have very little on tap.  It's almost 11 a.m., and I'm still in my jammies, sipping coffee and relaxing with the boys.  I'm thinking about making some of this. I even have all the ingredients ready. At some point I will probably mosey over to the pool to get my workout in (I'm in a pretty hefty swim block that started this week and am feeling great!)  I'm seriously considering stopping at Target (my favorite money-sucker) on the way home from the gym to pick up a couple of things for Christmas for the boys.  I have a hard time saying no to a good sale, even if it means braving lines.  I'm hoping that if I go in the afternoon it won't be quite so crazy.  Obviously, none of this will happen if I just stay here in my jammies.  I'm still undecided! ;)

One thing I'm definitely getting done today is the making of the Christmas cards.  Every year I make a photo card.  This is last year's:

In the past, I have used Snapfish, but Shutterfly has a blogger special going on right now, so I went to their website to check out what they have.  I fell in love with their Christmas card styles.  They have so many to choose from.  I especially like the foldable ones, but I won't tell you which one because I don't want to spoil it for the people who will receive one!!

Of course, picking out the card is the easy part.  Now I have to choose the pictures!!  Maybe I need some more coffee!!
