Can you believe we’re already in December? Thanksgiving came and went last week and we’re finally getting into the holiday season. That means it’s been nonstop Christmas music playing here!
Here’s a look at what our long weekend entailed:
Wednesday, work let out around 3 p.m. so I picked up LM early and we headed to the library to run around for a bit. She has some molars coming in, so we didn’t get in much playing.
FW was in for a treat – he got picked up early by B’s brother, who was taking him to the movies. FW got to see Frozen 2 with his cousins, aunt and uncle. It was his first movie theater experience, and I think he loved it.
We had a busy but fun weekend in town. I’m not ready for it to be MONDAY, but I’m glad it’s a short week!
Our weekend included some early Thanksgiving celebrations, a friend in town, a girls’ night, a toddler birthday party and of course some running. Here’s how it panned out.
The weekend included some festivities, running, relaxing AND baking. In fact, I baked twice in one day, which was a regular occurrence before I had kids.
Here’s some of the fun.
Saturday started with a baby shower for my sister-in-law! My mother-in-law baked the cutest cookies as usual.
“What are you guys doing this weekend?” My mom asked me on one of our daily calls (yes, we talk pretty much daily) this week.
“I don’t think we have anything planned,” I replied. And then I checked our calendar. Sure enough, this is the last weekend before the holidays with absolutely nothing on our calendar! So, I was looking forward to having nothing planned and doing whatever we wanted. Which turned into a date night, several trips to the museum, a visit to the library, a playground stop and more.
Here’s what the weekend entailed:
I have a decent amount of vacation time left this year, so I decided to take a few hours off Friday and hang out with FW. This meant we had some fun one-on-one time, which included going to the “pancake store” for lemon ricotta pancakes.
Wow – can you believe it is already November? Here’s a look at what our weekend entailed:
Friday night sushi. Because I haven’t had some in a while and it hit the spot!
October may be my favorite running month. Especially this year. We had a pretty mild month with no early snowfall and not too much rain that it interfered with my runs. And despite only getting in one race, it seemed like near perfect racing conditions each weekend. That’s why I’m proud of my total mileage for the month! Continue reading
Whew! I am still recovering from this past weekend’s festivities. It was a four-day extravaganza filled with lots of family events. It was B’s brother’s wedding on Friday so the weekend started with a rehearsal and dinner on Thursday, wedding on Friday and a brunch on Sunday. So yeah, I’m pooped but it was all in good fun!
