Hello! Monday Funday. Yesterday was Sunday. My sister was in town which meant it was a sad Monday because she went home yesterday. Boo. But, we had a swell time hanging out with our puppies and parents over the past couple days. My mom needed to make some crafts for a work meeting so we did some craft shopping then got down to business crafting these adorable holiday gnomes.
I’d highly suggest getting together with some of your gal pals and having a craft/baking day soon. You all know how fast the holiday season flies by. Next on my weekend holiday bucket list…cookies!
Now one update since last post…push-ups. I’ve been doing 3 sets of 10 push ups every day since last Tuesday and you know what? They still suck…but I do feel like I’m getting better at them…My first couple days I was doing 5 from my toes and 5 from my knees…the past couple days I’ve hit 7 from my toes and 3 from my knees. Cool. If you aren’t good at something, my advice is to make a plan, and stick with it. Small steps will help you stay on track. For me, these push ups literally take 5 minutes out of my day and make me feel like I’m accomplishing something…even if it’s something small. Practice makes you better. Do something to get you closer to your goals.
So, I just feel like sharing some fun things I’ve come across lately.
First, these donuts. My mom, sister, and I popped into Sur La Table Saturday afternoon and found some fun things…these donuts were on sale and a super fun treat. I whipped them up yesterday afternoon and might have already consumed 4 or 5 of them…oopsie. But it’s hibernation season so who really cares if I snack on a few extra donuts.
Next…red boots (and fun socks). I almost felt like Rudolph in these…except not because he had a red nose, not boots. But you get it. And, I got them on clarence so extra funsies.
Thirdly (is that even a word?)…sports Epsom salts. YEAH BABY. I’ve been working on my squat form along with the push-ups, running and rowing and have been SORE. I found these as an add on Amazon and had to get them. They smell amazing and make me feel really good and happy.
Nextly, holiday anything but mostly, these candles. THEY SMELL SO GOOD I COULD EAT THEM. But that would be dumb and then I’d probably end up spending the holidays in the hospital so I will try not to. There’s an Egg Nog, Evergreen (Christmas Tree), and Holiday Kitchen scent and I love them all. I also got these on Amazon and highly recommend purchasing ASAP.
Abercrombie and Fitch. Haven’t even looked at their website since probably 2010 but I’m obsessed. They have the best looking sweaters, vests, jeans…everything. And almost everything is on sale. Take a peek and treat yourself?
Lastly, this dress from Target. I love Christmas. This dress is Christmas. Holler.
Now it’s almost my bedtime (yes I’m 28 and go to bed by 9PM), so TTYL!
