I am very thankful for this past week off because I got to spend some quality time nursing my Cullen back to health! He was very clingy after his traumatic urinary tract blockage so I'm glad I was able to love on him as much as he wanted. He is feeling so much better. He is back to his regular spunky self! He is eating the prescription food so well! And his bathroom habits are getting back to normal! Praises!!!
On Monday of last week the boys and I met Jenny and her kids at Starbucks and then we went to Target. Fun times! Jenny and I even found more matching shirts that we couldn't live without lol!
We always do a puzzle during our holiday breaks. We found this Disney one from Target and completed it yesterday! It's so pretty! And I really want to frame it but I'm not sure how you do that with puzzles. I know there's a way...anyone know how?
On Wednesday Andy only worked half a day. We went to lunch, Starbucks, and did a little shopping.
Then we headed to my sister in law's house for Thanksgiving. I got to hang out with my cute little nephew Ronan! And I helped (more like observed) my sister in law Katie with the turkey.
Thanksgiving morning I headed out for a 3 mile run to help burn off some calories I knew I would be eating later. My 3 mile run turned into a 4 mile run and then into a 5.25 mile run! It was awesome!!!
Then it was Thanksgiving time! It was tradition for Andy to carve the turkey! And look at all the yummy food!
Later that afternoon Andy and I left the boys with Katie and we headed out for some Black Friday (on Thanksgiving) shopping (our annual tradition)! First up was Target....and yes I made Andy stand in that line lol! He wasn't thrilled but he was a good sport about it! Especially when he saw how much money we saved!!!
Then we headed to Best Buy! We bought something..but we both had a little buyer's remorse afterwards so we aren't sure if we are keeping what we bought. We will see. If we keep it...I'll let you know what it is lol!
We headed home after that with plans to get up for more shopping the next morning. Unfortunately Katie got sick during the night and we had to go get the boys early that morning. So...the boys got to experience their first Black Friday shopping trip!
On Saturday I ran a 10K from home. I'll tell you more about my run on Wednesday. The rest of the day was spent watching the Iron Bowl! This is THE biggest game ever here in Alabama (Auburn vs. Alabama). We had plans to go to Jenny's house for the game. And our friend Leigh from Birmingham was in town and coming too! But first...we made a trip to Starbucks with Leigh! Of course since we are all princesses running the Disney Princess race we had to wear our princess visors with all our Auburn gear! And my favorite barista made a "cold surprise" for Leigh's son Austin...and he made samples of it for all of us!!! I just LOVE my Starbucks store!!!
Unfortunately, Auburn lost the game (we expected it but we had hope they would pull out a win). But we still had a blast! Losing is so much more fun with friends!!!
Sunday was a day to relax and get ready for the work week.
Such an amazing Thanksgiving week! I'm so thankful to have a job where I have time off with my kids!!!
Now it's time for the Weekly Chase! It's a new week and I have new goals to achieve! I hope you will link up your own goals with me too! And feel free to use the badge below in your post too! You can grab the badge HERE! :-)
Here are my goals from last week!
- Goal #1: Run every day! Yes! I did a LOT of running over my break!
- Goal #2: Roll, stretch, and ice daily. Yes!
- Goal #3: Maintain my weight by logging my calories. 95%. It was hard to log my food on Thanksgiving Day. But I was very aware and still splurged but kept it reasonable. No weight was gained!!!
- Goal #4: Move 11,000 steps or more each day this week. Yes!
- Goal #5: Run at least 1 run under 2 miles. No. I did a LOT of running this week. And I didn't do my rest days like I should have.
- Goal #6: Map out our shopping plan for Black Friday!!! Yes. But our plan didn't go as planned since we had to go get the boys early.
- Goal #7: Buy ingredients for the dishes I will be bringing for our Thanksgiving meal! Yes! And my dishes turned out so yummy!
Here are the goals I'm chasing this week!
Every week goals:
Goal #1: Run every day!
Goal #2: Roll, stretch, and ice daily.
Goal #3: Maintain my weight by logging my calories.
Goal #4: Move 11,000 steps or more each day this week.
Goal #5: Run at least 1 run under 2 miles.
Goal #6: Complete my December school calendar for parents. I can't believe it's already December! We only have 3 weeks of school left but we are going to be busy!
Goal #7: Plan a Christmas gift from my class to their parents. Unfortunately I can't remember what gift I did last year so I've got to come up with a new one and get started on it!
So that's the plan for this week! I hope you have a great week accomplishing your goals!!!
QOTD: What goals are you chasing this week?
