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).

image(14)Yay! The table is so festive – love it!

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!


Doggie Halloween Pajamas

What happens when mommy spends too much time in Target on a Sunday afternoon? She comes home with Halloween PJs!

photo(61)Doesn’t Mac look precious?? Well we think so at least. 🙂 I bought these glow-in-the-dark pajamas as a fun alternative to the typical doggie Halloween costume at Target this past Sunday.

photo(62)Until tonight, it’s been way too hot for me to even have Mac try on his new outfit. But this afternoon came with a nice rain shower that brought our temps down a little. Plus, my night off of teaching Jazzercise gave me extra time to play dress up and hold a photo shoot.

photo(59)I love his little face! Plus, I swear Mac could sense how excited I was about his new outfit, and he cooperated with all my silly posing demands! For about 10 minutes anyways..then he retreated to his comfy bed.

photo(60)Which is where he is still resting right now. Still in the PJs. I’m lucky my little guy actually enjoys wearing clothes for the most part!


Lunch was easy today! Yes, lunches around here are usually easy, but today’s came together in about 45 seconds flat. I started with my typical green salad, topped with mushrooms, snap peas, and carrots.

photo(59)I’m lovin’ Catalina dressing lately! Little sweet, little tangy. All Yum.

While I was finishing up my salad, I heated up a bowl of leftover turkey chili from the weekend. It ended up being even better the 2nd time around!

photo(58)This was eaten with a million crackers because this girl loves her carbs.


Dinner oddly looked like lunch because I was too lazy to cook! So I warmed up the other bowl of leftover chili. Chili round 2! Once again delicious. I had a fresh peach on the side while reading the grocery ads that came in today’s paper.

photo(58)Now Nick and I are relaxing on the couch and waiting for the newest Duck Dynasty episode to come on. I hope your Hump Day has been great!
