I’m Like Santa Claus…

I’m like Santa Claus because I’d take cookies from strangers.

I’m like Santa’s reindeer because I want to fly run around the world.

I’m like Rudolph because I have a red nose head.

I’m like the Three Wise Men because I’m always late.

I’m like the Grinch because my heart is 2 sizes too small for my body.

But, I’m the opposite of Frosty the Snow Man because I would die in the snow.

Thankfully, Ben is from Florida so I get to be a snow chilly weather bird for Christmas! I’m super thankful he’s not from somewhere cold. IMG 3861 800x600 thumb I’m Like Santa Claus…

His fam is from a small-ish town 80 miles south of Tampa. No stores are open – not even Dunkin Donuts. So, my run this morning was quiet and peaceful. image thumb22 I’m Like Santa Claus…

But, now I keep saying “It’s Jesus’ birthday!!!” a la Melissa from Real Housewives of New Jersey. I first said it to make fun, and now I can’t get it out of my head. That’s what I get.

I called my mom to check in wit my family’s Christmas, but everyone else was still asleep. Guess I’ll have to try in a bit…

    Yeah my bf is from Sarasota and says it closes down any chance it gets. Says everything closes at 10pm like every night. Not surprised it’s super quiet on xmas!

    We saw some Starbucks open, but alas I wasn’t driving, otherwise we so would have hit the drive thru. I hope you got everything you want for Christmas! Yay for a supportive MIL!

    Hi Monica! I just found your blog and I am really looking forward to reading it. My mom, aunt & uncle live in Englewood and I have spent many a Christmas down there. :)
