Holiday Happenings

Happy Friday! I’m glad to see that we’re all around still. I must admit, I was a little nervous about the end of the Mayan calendar for a while there. But it seems like planet Earth will continue on, and we should make the best of each day while we can.


Yesterday afternoon, my niece had a doctor appointment, and it turned out that the doctor’s office was literally right behind Whole Foods. What a perfect excuse to stop in for lunch! I haven’t been to Whole Foods in a long time and lunch was delicious.

I had a salad, some fruit, and some noodles. And we shared a piece of pizza.

Luckily, the winter storm didn’t turn out to be as bad as I expected last night. My sister-in-law came and picked up my niece and made it home safely. Danny rented us It’s A Wonderful Life to watch, except that I didn’t realize it’s over two hours long. It has been a stressful past few days, and I was really tired, so we only watched half of it and plan on finishing it tonight.


Today’s Workout

  • 1.1 mile treadmill
  • BodyPump – 60 minutes

My workout was the same this morning. I walked on the treadmill for about a mile and then went to BodyPump. After the gym, I had a few errands to run, and then I had Jaden’s holiday party and sing-a-long at his school.

I love being able to the classroom parties at his school. He loves having his mommy there, and I love helping out. The kids loved the reindeer water bottles, and we made candy cane reindeer.

This weekend, we’re pretty much just finishing up all the last-minute holiday stuff. I have to get some groceries for Christmas breakfast. I think I am going to make this cinnamon french toast that I found via Pinterest via this blog.


The kids love the McDonald’s cinnamon melts, so I figured they’d love this french toast too. Sunday, I’m baking some cooking for Christmas Eve.

Have a great weekend!

Questions of the day:

  • Favorite place to eat for lunch?
  • Favorite Christmas movie?
  • Any plans for today? This weekend?

    My fav place for lunch would have to be Chipolte or Portillos. Yummy! And ELF is my fav Christmas movie!!! Baking some holiday orders tomorrow and Sunday. Yay! $$$! Have a great weekend heather!

  2. The Whole Foods salad bar is by far my favorite splurge for a lunch! You’d think I was a kid in a candy store–I have a ball. Otherwise, I’m a fan of hitting up Chipotle if I happen to be out for lunch.

  3. I’m pretty sure your kids will love the cinnamon french toast bake =) Happy Holidays <3
