Hey All! I hope you had a long Thanksgiving weekend! I am recapping Friday-Monday here on my blog. Check out what we were up to!
I slept in and spent the late morning catching up on Survivor with one of my favorite baby boys!
Then I went for a 6 miler which felt really good.
A had an appointment with my podiatrist later on. Don't worry, my feet are fine! I just felt a weird pain in my big toes when I would curl them. It didn't hurt running or walking. Turns out, it was flexor hallicus longus pain, which will probably just go away on it's own. The podiatrist didn't recommend and treatment, just to be careful what shoes I wear day to day. I'll take it!
That evening, we were supposed to go to Paul's 15 year high school, but he decided he didn't want to go. Instead, we went to Moo Duck Brewery in Elizabethtown with Bob and Rachel.
It was a cozy place. There were no children, which was important to me. One thing I don't like about breweries is that there are often tons of kids there. They also had Nissley wine, which is important to me because I don't like beer!
Something sort of scary/exciting happened on our way to the brewery... I'll tell you about it in a couple days!
I was up so late because I just couldn't sleep. I feel asleep sometime after 3am!
My morning was spent blogging. I really needed to spend some time catching up on posts!
Then I dusted the house. Before I went for my run, I told Paul, "I envision you vacuuming while I am gone." He said, "Well you don't need to envision it, because that is what I will be doing." WHAT A GUY!
The reason we cleaned was so I could decorate for Christmas! I got a lot done. I didn't get everything out but I did about 80% of it! I'm going to vlog about it soon.
I went to bed pretty early due to only getting six hours of sleep the night before.
My morning was soooooo lazy. I lounged around forever and did some minor household stuff.
Here is my baby! Doesn't he look like a little lion?
That afternoon I did a 9 miler around Pinchot Lake with Ana @ Mother, Hike, Run, Repeat. It was so good to be out on the trail. The weather was perfect. Ana and I had great conversation and I always learn a lot from her when we chat or when I read her blog. Which you should do, because she writes hilarious race recaps!
Funny story... we were about halfway around the lake when we saw my in-laws on a hike! They said they heard my voice before they saw me. That makes sense! I do have a voice that pierces through trees...
After I dropped Ana off, I could not resist popping into a weird little store called Tuesday Morning. I got Christmas tea towels (sort of needed them) and Christmas fuzzy socks (needed them in the only way one needs Christmas fuzzy socks).
I was soooooo hungry so when I stopped at Karns for milk and bananas, I also got a turkey & cheese sandwich on a PRETZEL ROLL. It was so freaking good!
I also got some sour patch kid candy canes to try out. I'm not a fan of candy canes but I do like sour patch kids.
And I got TWO boxes of Little Debby Christmas trees. I never get Little Debbys! This is proof that you should not go grocery shopping when you are RUNGRY!!!
The rest of the day was spent relaxing and doing puzzles!
Ummmmm.... no wonder I am craving sweets!?
My puzzle buddy!
After laying in bed and reading GOMI for about 2.5 hours, I just had to get up and eat a Little Debby Christmas tree... so that's what I did. Then I went right back to bed.
I have problems.
My last day of break. Boohoo. I caught up on blogs in the morning and then I went for a 6 miler. My run felt great. I wanted to keep going but I already ran a lot of miles over the weekend so I opted to stop.
Then I dropped Paul off at the gym. While he was there, I went to TJ Maxx to putz. I got my niece a Christmas present so it wasn't a complete waste of time.
I also got this Yankee Candle. It smells divine. Yankee Candles are imperative when you have a cat who pees in random corners. You know, to show us who is boss.
When I got home, I did a lot of blogging (it is so time consuming to post every day!), wrapped Christmas presents, and watched CNN. I am back to watching CNN now. My heart is able to take it.
For dinner I had a turkey sandwich with Auntie Eileen's homemade cranberry sauce. It is THE BEST!
Now some pics of my kitties...
Let's play a game called Where Is Jelly's Head???
OMG I LOVE HIM!!!!
Do you ever get out of bed to eat something?
What's the craziest thing you bought when you were RUNGRY?
What is your favorite candle?
