Love Your Body: The Christmas Edition

One Prime Rib dinner for six from Whole Foods: $200
One day trip for two to the Magic Kingdom: $132
Gifts for BFF, Mom, and Dad: $150
Picture of my husband wearing the cashmere hat and scarf that were his Christmas gift from me: Priceless

Thank you so much to everyone that took the time to send TCB cards or letters - he is so touched by your kindness. I had to explain to him that your cards weren't a "gift" from me but rather a way to show him that the sacrifices he's making are appreciated. (Of course, he doesn't think of his job as a sacrifice, but we won't have that discussion today.)

And me?...what did I want for Christmas?

I don’t want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
I don’t care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true, oh baby all I want for Christmas is you

I don’t want a lot for Christmas there is just one thing I need
And I don’t care about the presents underneath the Christmas tree
I don’t need to hang my stocking, way above the fireplace
Santa Claus won't make me happy with a toy on Christmas Day
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
Baby all I want for Christmas is you, babe baby.

I won't ask for much this Christmas
I won't even wish for snow
I’m just gonna keep on waiting underneath the mistletoe
I won't make a list and send it, to the North Pole for St Nick
Won't even stay awake to hear the magic reindeer play
Cause I just want you here tonight
Holdin' on to me so tight
What more can I do?
oh baby all I want for Christmas is you, oh baby

Oh how the lights are shining surrounding everywhere
Where the sounds of children’s laughter fills the air
And everyone is singin'
Oh I hear those sleigh bells ringin'
Santa won't you bring me the one I really need
Won't you bring back my baby to me?

I don’t want a lot for Christmas
This is all I’m askin for
I just want to see my baby
Standing right outside my door
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is you

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!

What a great post. I only know what it means to be apart from your loved one for a few days - I can only imagine what you are going through. Here's to family - and love.

I love Love Your Body! And I love you! I'm so sorry to hear about your Grandpa, and that it is so hard with you beloved being away. I know it must be awful. You're in my thoughts and prayers dear. I admire and love that you can still be so positive. You ARE an inspiration! Mwah!
