Christmas Decorating, Part II

Happy Monday morning! I’m perkier than normal this morning. I think it’s all the coffee I’ve had + the good workout I had at the gym.


Monday mornings are when I teach at 5:40 am, but today I switched with the 6:45 pm teacher because of another event she needed to attend this evening. A normal person would’ve taken this opportunity to sleep in, but my body likes routine.  I was up at 5 am like normal, and I headed off to the gym (running outside did not sound like fun to me at all!).

I ran 3.1 on the treadmill – gotta get ready for the Turkey Trot! On that note, can you believe Thanksgiving is next week already?! Holy cow. I just doesn’t seem possible. But I digress. After my run, I was sweatin’ like a fool, so I did some upper torso strength training focusing on my triceps. Seated dips are my favorite right now! I finished with about 5 minutes on the Elliptical to help me cool down before I headed home to get ready for work!

Christmas Decorating, Part II

Yesterday, I finished up my decorating after Nick got home from deer hunting. He got home sooner than I was anticipating! He didn’t get a deer, but one of his buddies got his first buck! That seemed to make the weekend trip worthwhile. 🙂

I got our fancy wreath put up on the front door (compliments of Nick’s wonderful mother).

I also put some snowmen and reindeer above the fireplace, but since I don’t have a stocking for Mac or Nick yet, I didn’t want to show our fireplace with only one lonely stocking! Just a few more finishing touches, and the house should be ready to go for the holidays.

Mac’s New Clothes

My mom bought Mac a couple new outfits while we were shopping on Saturday. I finally got Mac to settle down enough for a couple photos yesterday!

First off is the blue sweater with matching scarf.

photo(137)Yes, he’s standing in the window. He was obsessed with all the leaves blowing around in the crazy wind this weekend.

photo(136)Who knew that doggies could look so good in scarves, too?!

His second outfit was some new PJs!

image(13)I party with Santa! haha The booty flap is my favorite part. He was pretty thrilled with them.

photo(132)Awkward face while he’s chewing on a dentabone…or maybe he’s just grinning. Either way,  Mac loves Christmas. 🙂

image(8)Well anyways, happy early holidays! I hope you have a great week. It’s our last full week before Thanksgiving gives us a few days off. Woohoo!

See you all later!
