We’ve been keeping things pretty mellow around here. Sam and I were sick with a cold last week and mine continued through the weekend. Finally feeling better and I can breath!
It’s been COLD. Like, single digits cold and snowing on and off.
“Mom, if we make gingerbread guys, our colds will feel better!” I don’t bake often with him and this was so, so fun. The house was all warm and cozy, christmas music on and he was so into cutting the cookies out and sprinkling them. We delivered some to his favorite neighbor friends Behr and Parks.
Took a trip to one of our favorite tree lots. This was right before the freezing cold and snow came. He went right to Santas lap…twice! He wasn’t nervous or scared at all. Probably because Santa gave him a small candy cane both times 🙂
Sam asked multiple times each day last week when we could get our tree. Friday night was the night and he was so excited!
Saturday I tried to rest as much as I could while they played outside for a while.Our friends host a super fun kid’s party every December. These three boys had THE best time together. All of them ride bikes, ski and have super athletic and outdoorsy parents. It’s nice to have lots in common. We need to play with you guys more often!
And since I haven’t talked about food much lately, I thought I’d share a super yummy crispy “cookie” Dan made last week. Recipe is found HERE. These were so easy and seriously good. Even Sam loved all the almonds! Gluten free and minimal ingredients. And a small update in the weight maintenance dept…Last week I was up about four pounds since doing the Whole30. I’m totally fine with it because I feel really good. My clothes fit and I’m figuring out on a daily basis how to maintain this lifestyle, while not getting back into bad patterns. This month is especially hard with all of the parties and events going on surrounding the holidays, that’s just real life. I’ll weigh myself in again maybe next week or the week after. It’s a great way to stay in check every couple weeks to a month. My workouts have been great and starting the first Monday in January, I’ll be teaching my very own spin class Monday nights at 6:30pm! Come sweat up a storm with me 🙂
Have a great week!
