Fingers crossed that I’m going to have a smoother day getting back to Omaha than I did getting out here to Portland on Wednesday! On the plus side, I got to start my day today with breakfast with the lovely Mary of RunstoGetWaisted (and a fabulous breakfast!).
Some other things I enjoyed this week:
- I love Patty’s playlist for getting through December without losing your activity mojo. I’m going to have to download those. I love the idea of running through the Christmas lights with a holiday soundtrack. 🙂
- Laura’s advice is always great and in her holiday tips, I particularly appreciate the point about using all of your senses. Food is always so much more satisfying if it’s on a plate and looks pretty and if we take the time to notice it as we taste it, smell it and see it.
- If you’re looking for support and motivation to finish the year, check out this post and group with Mariana for her #UnfluffYourStuff Project. I like that she’s focusing on doing something every day – doesn’t have to be fitness, doesn’t have to be huge, just do SOMETHING. Very doable 🙂
This weekend, we’re planning on doing a Christmas light scavenger hunt (like this one or this one) and trying out Santa with Oliver again. Fingers crossed as we haven’t had much Santa luck in the past couple of years! We’re also going to decorate our house and Christmas tree for the holidays. Oliver was very excited to be tasked with getting all of the decorations out and ready for when I get home. 🙂
I’m also in the mood to cook, which my husband will be thrilled to hear, so hopefully I’ll get some quality kitchen time in too. I always feel more inclined to hang out in the kitchen when it is cold outside. I’ll be sure to let you guys know if I try any recipes that are particularly great!
Have you ever met an online friend in real life? I confess that as an uber-introvert I was a little nervous about meeting someone “new” but it turns out that online friendships really can translate to the real world and it felt like I was chatting with a friend I’d known forever (because I was!).
