Christmas Blubber

Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat....

Oh wait, that's just me!! I've already gained 4 lbs. since the beginning of December. Not such a great thing when you find out that you're pregnant and wont be able to diet it all off as soon as Auld Lang Syne is done playing on Jan. 1st!

Every year I think I'm doing so good. Only having a cookie here or a piece of pie there. What is it about Christmas that we feel the need to bake every cookie we've ever aquired a recipe for and on top of that buy out half of the candy section of our local grocery store!?

At our house, we have everything from peppermint nougats to candy canes, 3 kinds at that! To bread pudding to cut out reindeer! I should seriously consider putting a sign out in my front yard advertising my own goodie shop.

Since I'll be unable to lose any of the pounds that are so generously piling up on my ass, at least maybe I could make back a few of the hundreds of bucks we've shelled out on gifts!

Now wouldn't THAT be a Merry Christmas!?

Merry Christmas Jen! You're pregnant? Wow! Congratulations! I'm with you on the need to sample every Christmas goody that makes its way into the house. Ugh, I ate a whole box of Almond Roca while wrapping presents yesterday.
BTW, I tagged you for a super easy meme over at my place.
