I took small portions of my favorite things: ham, cheesy potatoes and scalped corn (I am talking SMALL portions) - and I realized I don't need a heaping plate of the fatty things! My uncle Steve smoked chicken - it was delicious - seriously. I ate a LOT of that, some veggies, and huge/delicious strawberries. I took my time, and tried to avoid the dessert table. My aunt Linda makes the most amazing pies - French Silk and Banana Creme are personal faves. That tactic seemed to work. By the time I was thinking I would just go grab one bite - they were gone. Shout out to my family for eating them before I could get to them! I have found that is you head outside as soon as you are done - you have a lower tendency to nibble. Evacuating is the key to holiday success!

All-in-all it was a great weekend! It was so nice to catch up with everyone, and get some new career leads. Do you have a new career suggestion for me? I'd love to hear them!
