    @The Hizzy – how was Hawaii (other than you got engaged!)? I think we are going to the same places as you went so I wanted to ask if you had any specific recommendations? It will be my husband, me and our 18 yo who will have just graduated HS! This is a combo graduation gift for her and anniversary trip for us (weird I know but we can’t afford two big trips). I already have a lot of things on our list of must-dos, plus just some relaxing on the beach.

    I liked that article @MissDre. So true!

    Just finished catching up since i was out of town last week visiting family for Thanksgiving. Wow, so much news! Congrats to thehizzy and missdre! Hope you have a good time on your first last date of 2017 copa! And congrats to the ladyE on your upcoming show!

    My oldest (22) daughter and her boyfriend decided they want to live together (they’ve been dating 6 months). She lives with us and we told her she has to stay on top of her own bills for 6 months before she can do that. She’s just now getting back on her feet and we’ve been paying her car payment and insurance. Plus, he still lives at home and they plan to live there for a year before moving out on their own. I think that’s kind of a dumb idea. I think they should save now and plan to move in a year into their own place. No need to be in a hurry….except I’m kinda ready for her to move out. But then I don’t want her to make yet another mistake and have to move back in again. Technically she is an adult so we don’t have much say, except we have been supporting her (financially) which is why we put the 6 mo stipulation.

    @Copa – I think, unfortunately, a lot of women date men with blinders on. The great thing about it is then you know better and what to look for (I hope for the majority anyway) for future dates.

    I dated a total scumbag when I was 17-20ish. Unfortunately, I had a kid before I woke up and smelled the roses, so to speak. I did manage to move on and find a great guy (he adopted my daughter when she was 3!). No one (after many discussions with many different people) could show me or tell me all the red flags they were seeing. Ya know, I knew I could fix all the things. I had to finally wake up and see it for myself. Took me way to long!

    @copa, I’m with Ktfran…don’t settle! I don’t have any examples though. Being from the south, most of the people I know were married young (and not always to the right people…but ya know, that’s what you do in the south, marry young). Except for my best friend. I think she did settle. I like her husband and he’s a good guy, but I don’t think they are a match. I’d never tell her that in a million years (though she said something similar to me once) She didn’t even want kids so timing wasn’t a factor. She just didn’t want to be alone. They are still together (8 or so years now) so I’m hoping those feelings she had are gone and they are happy.

    Ok-maybe that’s not a great example either cause it worked for her. Maybe go kick more butt at Orange Theory as that sounds awesome! I might have to look into that 🙂

    What is Orange Theory? There is one here, near my house actually. I thought it was just a regular gym. I guess not?

    The weather is all over the place. Snow one day, 70 the next. It’s so crazy! Fall is also my favorite season. Thankfully we have had some fall like days.

    – We will also be in Hilo for the most part of our vacation and on Kilo for just a couple of days. You’ll have to chime in when you return and tell me (all of us in the forums that is) all the things you enjoyed doing. I’ve already got a list of things we def want to see/do.

    Not much going on this weekend for us but I’m looking forward to seeing my family over Thanksgiving (but not looking forward to the 12 hr drive).

    @TheHizzy – where in Hawaii are you going? We are going to the big island in May and can’t wait to go. Have a awesome trip!

    @theHizzy – sorry you had to have back surgery – sounds awful! I wish you a speed(ier) recovery! My MIL had back surgery a few years ago – the one where they fuse the lower part of your spine together. She still has a hard time getting around.

    @Copa – thanks for the update! Glad things are going well. 🙂

    I’m trying the Whole30 diet. Started yesterday. I have Crohn’s and I really hope this helps. i’ve been having a lot of flare-ups and I really don’t want to increase my meds without exhausting all other options. Plus – it will be good to break my sugar addiction (hopefully). I really love bread but I can give it up for 30 days to see if my symptoms improve. I don’t think I’ll sustain that exact lifestyle for all eternity (hello cheese!) but I don’t want to be sugar dependent so…here goes!

    @MissDre – I’m so glad this is working out for you! I don’t comment on this thread much since I’m married but I had to just say I’m happy for you. And it is the little things that count. When is he visiting here?

    @Copa – you have to tell us how your date went!

    And happy Friday the 13th to everyone 🙂

    Sounds like most of you unwrapped Santa gifts. Maybe I’m the odd ball out then 🙂

    @K – Now that my girls are older and we no longer live close to family (12 hrs away) Xmas isn’t as fun for me either. But even before we moved I started having grinch like feelings on Xmas. I think it was the expectations and overall commercial feel of it. Now it is a lot more low key with just the four of us I’m coming to appreciate and like it again.

    @Northern Star…you opened presents from Santa? My husbands mom always wrapped Santa gifts to. Santa at my house always left the gifts overnight, unwrapped under the tree. I’d never heard of Santa gifts being wrapped until I met my husband. I thought he was the only one!

    And someone mentioned earlier that their husband felt lied to about finding out Santa wasn’t real. I’ve heard of that but don’t understand it. I remember feeling maybe sad he wasn’t real but not hurt or lied to. Maybe it’s in the way the news was presented? IDK. I thought the easter bunny was real and even the tooth fairy too. It brings back happy innocent care-free memories thinking back to believing in the magical beings. Of course, i used to think leprechauns were real to. And that there were little people in your stomach who boxed up all the food you ate on a conveyer belt to send through your system. I suppose I had an active imagination 🙂
