Working on my Christmas Tan

I seriously have not been to the pool since we moved into the new apartment. I can now say that yesterday, on December 22nd...I had an incredibly relaxing day by the pool in 80 degree weather. It really hasn't been that warm here in a while. I decided to take full advantage! It was defitely strange listening to Christmas Pandora stations, and hearing "Let it Snow", and "Winter Wonderland"!
It is supposed to be nice out today, but I need to finish my Christmas shopping....I may try to wrap it up quickly! So...for all of you who get gift cards, now you know why! (Kidding)

Festive in the NEW Apartment!

A few weeks ago we moved...not too far, just about 15 minutes away. Now Stephen and I are both closer to our jobs, which is GREAT! The new apartment, is VERY similar to our last one....with a few minor upgrades. Immediately after we were almost done unpacking, we put out some of the Christmas stuff. I didn't want to go too overboard since we still aren't 100% unpacked but I figured I would share a few of the hundreds of pics I have taken with my phone!
Oh Christmas Tree...



When I texted this to my mom, she called me a "wise guy"! :P

So festive!

Chewy Chocolate Cookies...SO good! HERE is the recipe...I used wheat flour instead off all purpose!

Santa Wine Pants...

Speaking of wine - I have yet to find a more awesome place to hang our stockings!

The countdown is on!

Keeping up with traditions...

It is tradition for Jen and I to dance when we get together! Now this of course isn't our usual choreographed awesomeness, but it still counts!!!

Rockstar Workout

As you can see from the previous post, we went down to South Florida to celebrate Thanksgiving with the family. It was so nice to get away for a few days and take a break from all the unpacking that has been going on over here. We had a great time, as usual....everything was wonderful...great food, great people...how could you go wrong?!?! We even managed to fit in a few skype chats with our family in NY, that is always fun! In the morning, I went to the park with Aunt Laura and Uncle John to attempt to un-do some of the damage!

Very "Halloweeny"

Last weekend we went on a mission to find a pumpkin. We didn't feel like taking a ride to one of the "pumpkin patches", so we set out on a journey to find one in town....we were successful at Lowes!

We carved it last Wednesday...


Meet...our pumpkin Jack! I sketched him, and Stephen carved him....it was a team effort!

Of course our Halloween decorations would not be complete without artwork from Jake!

I even roasted up some pumpkin spice - pumpkin seeds....Yummy!!!

AND I made pumpkin bread...

Click HERE for the recipe!
(I made it without the pepitas)

Cowabunga!

I promised a lot of pictures, and I sure did deliver!!! Last night was the long awaited Haunted Hills 5K! It was rough, lot's of hills, and in case anyone was wondering...it's not easy running in a tutu!!! We had a blast, and all ran together (except for the last tenth of a mile). We even won the contest for best group costumes! Woohooooo! Heroes in a half shell - turtle power!!!
We all painted little ninja turtles on our nails....isn't it adorable?!?!














A Visit From The Parentals!

Because I like for there to be some kind of order on here...I am first going to post the pics from when my parents visited before getting to the race photos! It's my fault because I have been lazy with keeping up with both the blog AND facebook! So here are some of my favorites. We had a GREAT time while Mom and Dad Sco were down here! The weather was perfect, we went to Downtown Mount Dora, and Epcot, and ate like kings pretty much every night!
