Kimba's 6th Annual Christmas Card Swap

It's that time of year again!!!

It has always been fun to receive Holiday cards from my bloggers throughout the year! Fun to see how the littles ones have grown or how there is now a boyfriend/husband or furbaby attached to the card!

I will again be adding my fave bloggers to my Christmas Card list! If you would like to swap please send me an email (kimbakimba at with your full name and address, also please include your "blog name"! (Even if we've swamped in the past I would appreciate if you would send me your address, I for some reason can't find my file from the years past.)

Can't wait to swap with my new and old blogging buddies!

Happy Holidays!!!!!!

Here I am

Well hello there! Hope you all had a very Happy Thanksgiving! Ours was wonderful, we went to the Cape. Leaving Wed at 1:30pm was the best idea as we hit minimal traffic!

What's being going on here? Not too much, the boat is put away, and i'm back on the restricted diet (no - eggs, wheat, soy, milk, all nuts, fish, beef, and corn). It hasn't been as bad as I thought, but I would KILL for a piece of cheese.

Basically i'm eating, fruit, veggies (no corn), and a lot of rice products. Take this morning for example, I had organic rice puffs with rice milk. Add a few berries and there you have breakfast. It's a pain but I only have 4 more weeks (8 total) so i'm half way done. Well kind of. After I have my biopsy they will determine if eliminating these foods reduced the allergen levels in my body. And two by two they'll add the above food back in and do a biopsy every two weeks, if my levels go up they'll know which food is causing it. So I have a lot more fun to look forward to.

Well I didn't plan to have this post be about the diet, but Christmas!!!

I'm getting ready to decorate this weekend, I can't wait! Also I've been creating my Christmas list and hoping I find the perfect gifts! Though if asked what I want, the only thing I can think of is a steamer to reduce my dry cleaning bills. So a steamer it is, how boring is that?! I just got the new iPhone 4 so that you can cross off my list.

What else? I've been running a ton and it feels great, i'm not keeping track of my miles or time, I just know I'm getting stronger and am able to keep a pretty decent pace throughout the run.

I think come the first of the year I'll keep track of the year, but I don't want too much pressure until I've got my speed up.

My traveling has picked up, I was able to meet the ever so adorable @CapeGirlInDC, we had a great dinner and shared some great blogging/twitter laughs! I am a good traveler, I don't love being away from home but I do enjoy seeing different parts of the country and meeting some great blogging friends along the way! I'll keep you posted if I come to a city near you soon!

One quark I learned about myself:
I get super stressed out while on the rental car bus because I use National and you can go right to the lot and pick out the cars they have for executive level customers, so I eye up my competition and try to be the first one out of the bus and to the lot. And each and every time I end up with a perfectly suitable car and my last trip to Baltimore I even got a Jeep!

Believe me I understand it's nothing to get stressed out about and I have many other things much bigger to worry about. But hey it's the little things sometime that make us us.

Also, my 10 year high school class reunion is tonight, I decided not to go back to Wisconsin to attend, mainly because I didn't want to get stuck at the airport in some random Mid-West snow storm. You always see people sleeping in airports around the holidays. But now that the day has come i'm bummed out. But being home is pretty peaceful for this crazy life of running around all the time. But I sure hope we get some good pics posted on facebook! And I have some girls that can give me the scoop!

It feels good to be back to blogging, I better keep it up!!!
