Happy Monday to ya! So the big question of the day today: Who’s ready for Christmas??!! Ummm, MEE! I’ve been asked about half a dozen times this same questions around my office today, and it keeps making me smile.
So this weekend, I worked out a lot (I taught 4 Jazzercise classes between Friday when I left work and this morning when I came back), so I felt extra inclined to indulge in some cookie baking.
Christmas cookies are the best! I made 7 dozen cookies, half chocolate chip, half oatmeal raisin. I’m trying to get rid of as many of them as possible at work today. And I’ll take the extras along with us to my parents house tomorrow morning.
Baking cookies and goodies is one of my favorite parts of the holiday season. I eat a ton of raw dough before I eat a freshly baked cookie, and then everyone else gets to enjoy them too once I’m on sugar overload. So it’s a win-win!
I’m looking forward to baking and cooking with my mom tomorrow once we get to Hartville. We are going to make her famous fudge recipe and homemade Chex mix – both staples at my family’s gathering every Christmas! It’s going to be a fat kids dream, and I’m going to love every minute of it without guilt. I ran 13 miles yesterday, so I deserve some cookies and fudge this week. 🙂
Tonight will consist of my 2nd Jazzercise class of the day, followed by lots of frantic packing so we can leave bright and early tomorrow. And when I say bright and early, I mean between 8 and 10 am because Nick is not a morning person, and it’s always a toss up as to how our morning will go. 🙂 But because of my late sleeper, I will get in a nice run before we hit the road. I’m not sure when my next run will be, so I can hopefully make it a good one.
Have a great Monday!
