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.
His second outfit was some new PJs!
See you all later!
