Catching up on Christmas

Happy Saturday everyone! I hope your weekend has been great so far. Mine has been pretty quiet and productive, and I love it!

I was busy at work yesterday and busy last night with Jazzercise and wrapping gifts, so I kinda put off posting for the evening. But I swear I got a large chunk of my gifts wrapped and even started on making out my Christmas cards! After teaching Jazzercise right after work, I spent the rest of the evening ‘catching up on Christmas’ since I’ve been pretty lazy with everything so far. And now that my tree is looking a little more full with gifts underneath, my stress level has gone way down. Win!

Our photo Christmas cards arrived in the mail already (super fast!), and I love how they turned out. I’m in the process of making out the envelopes to my family members and should hopefully get them in the mail by Monday morning!

Aside from gift wrapping and card writing, I managed to do my long run this morning!

image12 miles. Woot!! I woke up bright and early to check out the weather. We had a couple of inches of snow fall overnight, and I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to get out for my run this morning. The roads looked pretty covered when I peaked out my window, but I was determined to get my run in.

I set off from my driveway and couldn’t even run out of my subdivision because the snow was so deep and wet. I walked/jogged my way to the main road and set off at an extra slow and careful pace. If I wanted to complete 12 miles in 3 inches of slippery snow, I was going to have to be extra cautious!

I was slipping and sliding all over the road, but I didn’t ever completely lose my footing – thank goodness! I did come back to my house for a change of socks at mile 7. I stepped in a super deep water/snow pile on accident and was in desperate need for some warm socks! Other than that, I took a couple of my Jelly Belly Sports beans along the way to keep me energized and kept on a truckin’ through the slush!

Ugly Sweater Party

Tonight is my friend Carley‘s Annual Ugly Christmas Sweater party! I’m so excited! I made some goodies to take along this afternoon, and Nick and I shall be heading out shortly. I love dressing up in my mom’s old Christmas sweaters and drinking egg nog with my old friends. I’ll be sure we take lots of lovely Christmas photos!

Have a cozy evening, and I’ll see you all tomorrow!
