… I’ve been enjoying life in the beautiful Almaden Valley.
… I’ve been back in the kitchen helping Lauren make cupcakes.
… I’ve been hanging with my two best friends, Jessi and Cassie.
… I’ve been dressing up for holiday parties, and of course throwing up the DG pose when given the chance.
… I’ve been poppin’ champagne to celebrate reunions with high school friends.
… I’ve been cooking some wonderful food! I can’t wait to share details about our delicious Christmas Eve and Christmas Day eats.
… I’ve been shopping in the city and trying to keep warm (I miss the LA sunshine!)
… I’ve been taking pictures with my beautiful new Canon Rebel T3i! Best Christmas surprise ever!
… I’ve been loving all of the family time!
… I’ve been putting my mind in the gutter while playing Cards Against Humanity. This “adult Apples to Apples game” is the best. Plus, all of the laughing burns calories from dinner, second dinner, dessert, second dessert, third dessert, etc…..
Some things that I haven’t been doing: studying, going to class, doing to dance practices, and working out in general. Since the 3 mile run on the 21st, I haven’t even thought about exercise until today. The fitness break was nice, but I kind of feel like I lost all of the muscle in my body! It’s weird how a few days off will have you feeling like that.
Today I finally got a workout in: 4 mile run, 25 mins on the bike, and some random strength exercises. I was relieved that I didn’t lose “all of the muscle in my body.”
It’s not all back to normal clean eating and working out though. I’m not freaking out about going back to my mostly clean diet. I’m currently snacking on rice krispie treats and waiting for my friends to come over. That’s the way the holiday break should be!
Winter break is so wonderful so far — full details about Christmas Eve and Christmas Day coming soon!
Question: What was your favorite Christmas present this year?
Question: How big of a priority do YOU think blogging is during break?
