Back to December (Pinterest Style}

December is almost here. Can you  believe it? Another year is about to be crossed off the calendar. I feel like my mind has been all over the place this week. This Pinterest post will give you some indication of the ramblings in my mind.

As we head into the last month of the year, I've got hot chocolate on the mind. Chocolate tends to consume my thoughts majority of the time. Last night I gave into my temptation and made this recipe. It's simple and so yummy. So much for the first day of my "healthier lifestyle". It was only one cup.

Speaking of healthier lifestyles, I am pinning lots of workouts lately. Easy stuff I can do at home. I have three kids, remember? My plans of going to the gym can quickly be derailed. I'm trying to set myself up for success. Here is the workout I have on my fridge right now. When I'm in the kitchen I will pick one or two things off the list to do. An hour later, I choose a couple more.

Why the change in mindset all the sudden? Do I like to set myself up for failure? With the holidays lurking, I am sure there are a few challenges coming my way. But mostly, I've been thinking about deployment homecoming. It's a really long time from now. However, starting to plan gives me something to look forward to. This homecoming will be different from the others. Of course, I can't share the details because of OPSEC. Acronyms ruin everything! Just kidding. Ok, so not kidding!

Keep watching the 'Homecoming' board on Pinterest. Right now I'm thinking homecoming dresses. Wrong season to be looking for outfits but a dress is a dress in my opinion. Here are some of my most recent finds.

If I go with the black dress, then it's getting hemmed. Just putting that out there! But chances are I will change my mind a hundred times before he returns. I think it's part of the fun.
