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:
