I’m still here. I had a super fun/busy weekend and didn’t much feel like blogging – I spent lots of time with the family instead.
Here’s a rundown of the weekend.
Friday: Got up early, relaxed and perused the sales, went shopping with my mom and got some great deals. She bought me a big part of my gift that I am so so excited about (and I’ll be sharing with you all after Christmas).
Saturday: Got up and had a fantastic bowl of oats. Contemplated going for a run, but it was cold. So I went to the mall instead and got a bit more shopping done. NY&Co was having a fabulous sale, so I treated myself to a few new things as well.
Sunday: Drove home. Driving 5 hours by yourself is no fun, let me tell you. Thankfully traffic was not nearly as bad as I thought it would be. I came home to a semi-clean apartment and a man ironing! I couldn’t believe it.
We took a trip to Wal-Mart because there were no groceries in the fridge (seriously) and ended up getting some things to decorate our little Christmas tree
They have just about everything you need for a mini tree – topper, ornaments, garland, even little tree skirts! I think it’s perfect. I have an extra strand of lights that I’ll probably put around the living room window or something. But the tree is enough to make it feel like Christmas.
I did also get some stockings to decorate. I really hope to knit some for next year (per Matt’s request) but for 2010 it’s gonna be $1 stockings filled with treats. But I did get some glitter paint!
Why are there three? Sterling gets a stocking, of course! (not like he knows the difference)
Monday was pretty boring. I worked, had a short workout (which I was not in the mood for), and came home to catch up on last weeks Biggest Loser.
I also signed up for my next race, but you’ll have to wait to hear about it – I’m so excited for it!
Well, I need to outfit myself in spandex and lace up my running shoes – have a great Tuesday!
