Extending the Holiday Festivities

Extending the Holiday Festivities


Well hello.

Long time, no blog.


Just doing a lot of spending time with family, eating and catching up on some much needed sleep. There have been a couple workouts thrown in there in the mix, but not the quality ones I should be doing. Oh well, it’s the holidays and we’ll be all about business starting Monday. Yep, the 29th. That’s going to be my official start of the new year. Ha.


I skipped my run on Christmas, struggled through a long AT run yesterday and then went on a slow trail run by myself today after boot camp.

Highlight workout sets of boot camp today were these two mixed in with a bunch of other things.

Here are the old videos.

We did this one twice.

Just four moves!


This one is pretty much a go to every week either at the beginning or the end of class.

Class favorite!


After class I hit up the trails while I was out. Randomly I made a wrong turn when I was running today and it actually ended up being brilliant. I’ll just show you.

I saw two small deer towards the end of my run and tried to get a picture.

Can you spot one in the center right there? Then I decided I shouldn’t stick around because there was probably a mama somewhere close by and I’ve had enough close calls with animals lately.

I realized today that I am a much better longer, slower runner. My body likes that more. I’m curious to see if it changes with this new training.



We’ve all been busy playing with our new Christmas toys.

Heck yes Santa pulled through with not one, but two Bat Bots. Rumor has it he paid twice the price on Amazon because they were sold out everywhere. What a sucker that guy is.

We’ve tested towing a bazillion things with the Max Tow Truck. It didn’t pull me on a chair (Andrew told me there was a 200 pound limit- thank you?), but it did pull Joaquin on a bike and quite a few other things.

I was busy yesterday setting up Mommy and Daddy’s new toys. One of them being a new modem so I got to spend way too long getting that all set up and being on the phone with our cable company setting up our internet “serivce”.

Hmm…… and I thought I was bad at not proof reading. At least I just have a couple people reading here and they mainly come for the pictures anyway. Ha.


We’ve had Starbucks a couple times over the past few days too. We’re blaming the holidays and when the red cups go away, so will our family coffee stops.

And once the boys’ birthday is over and the sock monkey wine cover is put away, our nightly wine drinking will stop also.

2014-12-26 19.53.58-1

Their birthday is tomorrow, so I guess that’s coming to an end in less than 24 hours. Ha.

The birds have now been moved to a big bird cage and get a few hours of warm sunshine a day in addition to their five or so feedings. Someone really likes to keep a good eye on them.

I discovered this new beet hummus from Trader Joe’s that is great with carrots and just about anything actually.

2014-12-26 15.17.09

I didn’t know if it would be good or not, but I really like it.

You know what else I really like? This Hot Licks store.

2014-12-27 13.09.35

He he. We had a wonderful family adventure today downtown and I went into this store to make a small purchase to get our parking validated. My small purchase got a little out of hand, but I did resist buying these.

2014-12-27 13.17.15

Someday I’ll have to try them.

I managed to get quite the hot sauce variety though. We’re all set for awhile.

The rest of the day was just awesome. Family time is THE BEST!

2014-12-27 13.42.512014-12-27 13.47.352014-12-27 13.48.512014-12-27 13.52.072014-12-27 13.52.37 HDR

I am convinced we will never have a normal family picture again though.

2014-12-27 13.55.13

Hope you’re still enjoying the holidays and extra family time!

We have more celebrating to do tomorrow with the boys’ birthday and all. I’m pretty sure I’m going to be done after that and throw in the towel for New Year’s festivities.



Have a great rest of your weekend!



Are you a better longer,slower runner or do you like shorter faster runs?

Has anyone else had a hard time sticking to workouts this week?

What’s your favorite hot sauce ever? (Just because I’m curious.)

    Yes, I would love to see a video of you eating the HOTTEST candy ever!! ha! I mean you are the only one (lady) I know that eats soooo many hot sauces and peppers etc…

    Normal family pictures are overrated….said the lady who hasn’t snapped a “normal” one in years….even our “professional” church directory picture took many retakes and still I wasn’t completely satisfied but we ended up with a Good Enough one.

    I am definitely a longer, slower runner. I don’t like feeling like I’m going to die, and that’s what I get with short, fast runs.

    My hot sauce preferences rotate. I am currently loving Arizona Gunslinger Red Jalapeno Pepper sauce – really good flavor!

    Jealous of the sun….i am in Ohio..I swear it has been gray for a week straight! Enjoy the boys birthday!

  7. 7

    Now that I’m older I’m definitely a longer, slower runner. When I was your age though my “slower” was a lot faster :-).

  8. 8

    I had a terrible time getting in my workouts this week. Actually, I just didn’t get them in at all. I worked out twice this week which is down from my usual 5-6 days a week. I’m ready to get back to it tomorrow!

    Merry Christmas to y’all! I took a couple extra days off the workouts but less because of Christmas and more because of my leg.

    That candy seems right up your alley! If I run, it’s slower! Slow and steady wins the race haha
