Eating as Hard as We Can

My wonderful father-in-law has a saying that always makes me smile. With his melodic southern drawl, he'll tell me, "Well, Emma... I'm eatin' as hard as I can."

To which I always reply, "Well, don't let me down, now!"

... And that pretty much sums up what we've been doing these last few days after the presents were opened. Sure there's been a movie, a trip to the mall to make our exchanges, some spirited card games, conversations filled with laughter, and even a visit from the Beau Hunk and the Eagle Scout...

But mostly...

We've been eating as hard as we can. 

Have you been eating as hard as you can?


  1. Will there be more Beau Hunk and Eagle Scout stories?

    Happy Holidays!

    1. Of course! These stories are always worthy of a post all their own! :0)
      I'll be working on them as soon as I get back from our vacation!
      Happy Holiday's to you too, Dolce!

    2. I second more stories, especially on Eagle Scout- I only remember him appearing once before.

  2. No, I am not. But I know what you mean. I guess it's a good thing we don't have visitors for the holidays or I would be. I did indulge in a few sweets, but nothing like I would have had there been family here:-)

  3. Yes, stop me, please! It's rediculous. Now I'm wearing yoga pants everyday.

  4. In fact I have not been. I've been known to let whole days go by with nothing but cupcakes and coffee to mark the passage of time. One of my new year's resolutions is to make it a point to eat breakfast lunch and dinner every day... and no, leftover cheesecake from the holiday party does not count as breakfast, and no, a bag of doritos is not dinner. ::sigh::
