  • Even though I kept up with my usual workouts through the holiday season, I gained a few pounds. Oh well! It’s winter warmth, haha.


Totally unrelated question – have you seen Die Hard? I have never seen it, and my husband seems to think it’s weird that I haven’t. He keeps bringing it up, and borrowed a copy of it from his sis/bro-in-law with plans to force me to watch it. It’s not that I hate action movies, I just prefer them to have humor or a decent plot. I gather Die Hard is to men what cheesy romantic comedies are to women. Brain candy. That I would never force my husband to watch.

  1. Nice repeats!

    I have only seen the latest Die Hard (and saw a preview for the newest one yesterday) and thought it was fun and humorous. But I really like action flicks 😉

  2. Seen it, but I don’t remember loving it. It was a really long time ago so I could be missing something.

    Plus, I have those same lightning bolt socks. I feel cooler knowing that I have the same socks as you. 🙂

  3. OMG, my fiance made me watch “die hard 2” on Christmas. He says, “It’s a Christmas movie.” Um, no. Just because it takes place around Christmas doesn’t mean it’s a Christmas movie!

  4. Okay, I feel a little better because I gained weight this week too! I love eating and drinking way too much at the holidays 🙂 I’ve never seen Die Hard either, there’s nothing weird about that.

  5. I’ve never seen Die Hard. I’m not into action movies at all. But I agree with the parallel on action movies to men as romantic comedies to women.

    Love those turquoise running shoes!!! I have a slight obsession with any non-white running shoes these days. Are those Brooks?
