I am fairly certain that we will both turn into pigs by the time the New Year comes around. Yikes. What a sight that would be!
Fortunately, we have so many leftovers from Christmas dinner that I haven't had to cook dinner since Christmas, and won't have to cook dinner until Easter (Alright, so that was a tad of an exaggeration).
OINK!! Does my skin look a little rosy colored to you? I know, I know.. my cheeks are always this rosy.
I know that they must say "you are what you eat" for a reason.. I'm just now becoming concerned that I may be turning into.. an... OINK!
