My Favorite Purchase


Good morning!


Yesterday’s workout:

A few lunges in Toys R Us and at Costco while pushing the cart around and dodging other last minute shoppers.

A quick 6 mile chilly evening run.

I tried to take a picture of my outfit, but it didn’t work out too well.

My after picture didn’t turn out too well either, but hey, you get both.

Ha ha.


Yesterday was shopping mayhem. Before the madness started though I had the best morning with my main men.

I also had one heck of a delicious egg white veggie omelet and potatoes with a little crushed red pepper.

So I started my shopping at 8 pm Thursday night and as of right now I only have one more gift to buy.

I can’t talk about the wrapping though. That hasn’t even been started. I hope I have enough paper. Ha.

Favorite purchase of the day yesterday was this.

He sings Jingle Bells and dances. He’s even hanging out with me this morning along with my sugar free dark chocolate peppermint mocha.

We had a little family dinner last night. I didn’t want to show up empty handed as usual and I’d already given away all the homemade cookies from my marathon baking night so I brought some organic, gluten free goodies we got from Ginny Bakes the other day.


We got into the chocolate chip cookies.


They were pretty good. Not too sweet, crunchy, chocolate chip cookies. We didn’t get into the chocolate chip oatmeal ones, but don’t they sound delicious?


Hmm…… maybe we’ll kiss up to Santa with those ones.



The highlight of last night’s dinner party?

After dinner horsey rides with Papap.


Ha ha. I hope he can walk this morning.


Okay, I’ve gotta run. I’m off to teach boot camp and I guess better start some gift wrapping. He he.


I totally have something else to giveaway, but I don’t have time now to post it. Stay tuned though for just one more holiday giveaway. Woo hoo!

    gift wrapping is always the longest part I think! Since we are traveling back to our families in TN, I can’t wrap until we get there!! Eeeek!!
