Happy (almost) weekend!

The last weekend before Christmas is here! Are you ready? We are very close, just waiting for two more packages. I did a lot of wrapping this week, so almost done with that too. I love wrapping, and enjoy taking my time to meticulously wrap and add some bows/ribbon to each gift. This weekend isn’t too crazy busy…Friday is lazy movie/pizza night, Saturday is errands & best friend’s holiday party, then Sunday is babysitting one niece and nephew.

Wedding Day Kiss | Tidbits for Today

We also got our wedding video back this week… waterworks! It really was the best day ever & marrying the best guy ever doesn’t hurt! So thankful we got the video, because I’ve watched it at least 5 times in the past 4 days, and just love seeing our special day!

Onto the recap of this week in eats, workouts and links across the web.

Recent Eats:

Breakfast & Dinner | Tidbits for Today

1. Scrambled eggs with mushrooms, peppers, & goat cheese + bacon! 2. Grilled cheese & tomato soup = easy dinner when the hubby isn’t home! <– I did eat more than two meals, just living life so didn’t take any other pics ;) 

Workouts:

Saturday: nothing – Sunday: nothing – Monday: elliptical for 35 mins – Tuesday: strength training – Wednesday: nothing – *Thursday: Strength training in the AM & yoga in the PM – Friday: Elliptical for 30 minutes

*I don’t normally do two workouts, but I’ve been trying to get in yoga twice a week, and I really wanted a flow class. Turns out the hubby had a late work event, the gym had flow yoga, and I wanted to relax/decompress from the day.. so I went. It was a great class and not overall really difficult, perfect ending to the day!

This is the perfect appetizer for Christmas Eve or Christmas day! My aunt used to make something similar and I’m thinking of going for it this year.

Have a great weekend!
