Cinderella Dressed in Yella

Ok so today after church I worked my little toosh off! I CLEANED LIKE A MAD WOMEN!!!! First I made some home-made tomoto soup, in a sourdough bowls for hubby and I The perfect cold afternoon lunch.

I then threw on my grubby cloths and started in the kitchen!!!! According to Fitday.com I burned like 144 extra calories! I cleaned, dusted,swept, and mopped: the kitchen, dining room,bedroom, guest room, and office. MAN I AM TIRED!!!! When I got to the guest room I almost had a MAJOR MELT DOWN!!!! I couldn't find a bag that had half of the presents that I bought on my last shopping trip. I searched for almost 45 minutes, and the hubby saved the day and asked if they were under the tree already wrapped, O MY GOSH!!! I can’t bleive that I already wrapped them, lol…wow

I had this banana bread LARABAR for a snack , mmmm…man is there a flavor I don’t like?

As I was cleaning I found a few things I forgot to share with you all. A wonderful gift of relaxation from my co-worker Nicole. THIS WAS THE BEST GIFT, she’s a very thoughtful friend!

She got my some soft jammi pants, soft socks, a yummy relaxing candle and some chocolate.

This chocolate has lavender in it, and this candle smells amazing! I am so taking a bath this week, and eating this chocolate while I am in it!

I laughed out loud when I read the title of this post - I used to love singing that song while jumping rope! You're bringin' me back ;o)

I'm glad the hub saved you from a major meltdown! I've had a few of my own this year - mainly because I keep wrapping presents and then realizing I had something ELSE I needed to put into the box...so then I just have to wrap yet another present! Haha!

I hope you have a wonderful week - enjoy every minute of your day off!
