The weekend went by pretty fast being that I had to work from 8 am to 3 pm on Saturday at an event. But like most weekends, there was still a flurry of exercise, activity, good food and some relaxation. Oh and the Ducks beat UCLA on Friday - we're off to the Rose Bowl!
Morning runs both Saturday and Sunday - the manfriend and I ran 9 miles (including some hilly trail) on Sunday!
We bought and put up our fake Charlie Brown size tree!
I'm kind of surprised we got a fake tree, but it will be nice to have for future years. I absolutely love the smell of real pine needles and having a real tree in the house, but this year I wanted something smaller so this one works. And I think it turned out pretty well despite being plastic and all. ;)
My mom used to read The Polar Express to us every Christmas. It holds this magical place in my heart and I finally bought a copy for myself.
In true holiday spirit, I even busted out my old boom box to listen to my Amy Grant Christmas tape --> nerd alert! Then I moved on to Bing Crosby and Mariah Carey on CDs.
What is your favorite thing, food, activity that you can't live without during the holidays?
