First off I have to mention my most favorite Christmas present that was a little late, so it didn't make it into the previous post. Mike gave me a portable ice maker! It is probably the greatest thing since I absolutely cannot drink anything without ice in the glass. And ever since our little peanut made it's appearance, I have wanted nothing more than to chew and suck on ice. We set it up last Saturday and it has gotten quite a bit of use since then. Unfortunately it is bigger than we thought, and it takes up some of my much needed counter space, but I think I can sacrifice a little counter space.
Moving on. On New Year's Day, Mike was dying to go to the beach. So we jumped in the car and headed out. We didn't have a specific destination in mind, we just started driving and ended up at Half Moon Bay (I think). It was really fun (besides the car sickness-something that reared it's ugly head only since I got pregnant. I never got sick in the car, but lately it has been really bad.) Anyway, we stopped in a little town to grab a sandwich and we headed to the nearest beach. It was a beautiful day when we left and while we were driving. By the time we actually got out of the car, the sun was starting to go down, but it was still nice to hang out for a minute. And extra nice to be at the beach on New Years Day.
Happy New Year to you all! I hope this year brings you many great things! Welcome 2010 (a little late, I know.)
