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.
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.
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 ;)
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!
