Happy December 1st!! I have lots to talk about today. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving Break. It was busy leading up to the big day but then we took off to St. George to relax and take a break from reality for a bit. I was able to host the big feast this year! Everything turned out perfectly. We had 55 people that includes our usual family bunch of aunts, uncles, cousins, brothers, and sisters etc…I love this time of year when we have several family get togethers. It was different being in charge. I stayed on watch of the food more and didn’t really “enjoy” the conversations as much, but I loved it! I love having my home full of family, friends, and food.
I mentioned I was in need of a few decorating items! Knowing I was hosting Thanksgiving I popped online and ordered a few things. Everything worked perfectly. Here is my collage of home decor! Whoops! I just noticed I messed up the writing a bit. Oh well! You can’t see my little silver penguin too well but he’s a cutie!
Next!! I have a birthday along with Christmas like I do every year of my life (: I love it and make a bigger deal about my birthday than I should! I thought of a few great gift ideas for the holiday season. From top to botttom: Red penguin jammies from Victoria Secret, the sweetest NIke running outfit ever (Nike Pro hyperwarm embossed pant and NIke Pro hyperwarm engineered hoodie), any pair of TOMS, Pandora bracelet (I love the idea of getting a personalized charm. You could get a new one every year!) So there you go!
Lastly, I updated the pic. from Thanksgiving. The yellow sweater was this year and the green was last year. I had to have my daughter in the pic. again too. This might be a silly picture tradition I’ll keep carrying on!!
Well! I gotta jet to a workout class. Sorry I didn’t say much about lean December!! I’ll have to come back in a couple days and discuss that!! I have great workouts to share, eating tips, and I read an article about the biggest fitness trend for 2015 I want to talk about! Have a beautiful day!! Time to get Christmas UP!!!
