I forgot to announce the winners of a couple giveaways from the week, so here it goes.
Chosen by random.org:
The winner of the Cooking Up a Business Giveaway is #82 Jordan D.
Yay! Email me your mailing information and I’ll forward it along! Congrats!
I didn’t really chat about my long run yesterday morning. It was definitely one of those that was mentally tough.
I had to keep reminding myself how lucky I am to be able to run and run kid free for hours in a beautiful place.
Seriously. How can I not enjoy that, right? And I got to sport my new Wave Inspire 10 shoes.
I also listened to Kelly Clarkson’s new Christmas album. I liked it.
On the home front yesterday afternoon something HUGE happened.
Oh heck yes.
Definitely more details will be coming and our addition to the family hasn’t fully been put together just yet, but we had quite the celebration last night after finally getting it in the house (it was a big job).
I couldn’t stop smiling and I may have shed a few tears of joy.
Some of us were more excited than others.
Yeah, Kitty cared more about the warm fire. What a weirdo.
In addition to celebrating with the cheap wine from Costco, which was pretty darn good by the way,
Andrew uncovered the BBQ and grilled for us.
Dinner was fabulous.
We have a lot of leftover salad from the one I took for Thanksgiving, so I threw that together really quick.
It went well with tri tip, chicken, roasted mushrooms with truffle salt and roasted asparagus.
It was the perfect date night.
Obviously Modern Family was involved.
And since we were talking candles the other day, this Yankee Candle is the bomb.
And random, but thought I’d share that although I’m all about singing decorations, if you don’t have one in your house, you might consider yourself lucky. After listening to the song multiple times a day from 5:30 am to 9:00 pm, it’s not as cute.
This morning I taught boot camp.
Came back and did just a couple stability ball tucks since I feel like I haven’t been doing enough core stability work lately.
Definitely not easy to take a selfie in that position, but it was a good extra challenge.
While I did a little core stability, the boys tried their own form of a stability workout.
Ha ha. Don’t worry, STUFT Daddy was there holding on to the tree. We’re just making room for our new addition to the family by getting rid of a few things. Do not try this at home.
And, I’m sad to say that our local market is out of purple sweet potatoes and they told me that they’re not sure when they’ll have them again.
I will stop asking them and stop posting pictures on here, but I have to leave you with how to make the perfect one.
First clean it and poke a few holes with a knife.
Microwave it for 3 minutes or so.
Then bake it at 425 (I use convection) on parchment paper for about 30-40 minutes.
The skin gets all crispy and the inside is soft and sweet and ready to mix up with coconut butter, nut butter, cinnamon or whatever you want.
Beavis. I miss my purple friends already.
I’ve got some cleaning to do, we’re celebrating Papap’s birthday tonight and it’s about time I ordered some Christmas cards.
Have a good one!
I’m running the Del Mar Athleta Iron Girl 10K tomorrow just for fun with a friend. We’re all about dressing up and decorating cookies at the end. Yay!
You can still register here or register at the event tomorrow morning. “STUFTMAMA” gets you 10% off any of the races.
More holiday giveaways coming up. Just not today.
Anyone racing a holiday event this weekend?
