Hey all! Long time no speak 😦 But I’m home and school starts tomorrow. I guess it’s back to the grind tomorrow. But only 15 more school-days and then I’m off for 2 weeks. Hallelujah!
I don’t want to go back to school, but it’s just one of those things where all you can really say is “That’s Life.” And get on with it! 🙂
My Thanksgiving was lovely, truly lovely! I enjoyed lots of yummy dishes. On the menu was: (the bolded words are the foods I had some of!)
- mashed potatoes
- sweet potato casserole ~ made by yours truly from Eating Well! It was amazing!
- green bean casserole
- raspberry jello ring
- raspberry preserves
- pineapple casserole
- pumpkin pie
- apple pie
- apple crumb pie
Twas a delicious meal, for sure. Enjoyed with friends and family alike 🙂 I had leftovers that night and managed to snap some photos! Our little trip was just a one day trip, which I really liked. I am not disclosing (right word??) where we went for privacy reasons, but I had a good time. I will show you this picture though. The horse was HUGEEE!
Friday morning I woke up to get a workout in, knowing that I would not have the opportunity to do anything later. So I did Yoga Fitness Plus and Incredible Abs, both from exercisetv.tv! (GREAT site!) Lovely way to start my day!
When I arrived home, I took a long walk with my dog and thouroughly enjoyed it 🙂 A snack was definitely in order! This mornings breakfast was FABULLOOUUUSS! White chocolate raspberry organic yogurt (stonyfield), organic cinnamon raisin granola, special k dark chocolate cereal, total blueberry pomegranate cereal, coconut, blueberries, and dark chocolate covered cranberries.
Now that’s a mouthful. Literally!!
Today’s gym workout was 60 minutes on the stationary bike (over 15 miles) because I just felt like sweating! I followed it up with some simple plank work. Lots of stretching, foam rolling, and the like. It felt really good!
I am so excited to decorate for Christmas on Saturday! We usually decorate the day after Thanksgiving, but since we were not here, we decided this upcoming Saturday is best. We also decided this because we will be leaving our decorations up longer this year! There is a reason, it’s just a surprise 😉
Verse of the Day: I’m going to switch it up and share some happiness quotes!!
Happiness is not having what you want. It is wanting what you have. (Anon)
Happiness is a choice that requires effort at times. (Anon)
How great are those?? The first really makes you think 🙂
Have a great Monday everyone!!
