Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Did you enjoy some holiday cheer? We sure did with three more days of 24 Days of Togetherness, a holiday party, and Sunday brunch with friends. Ooooh, how I love this time of year! That said, here’s a recap of our weekend!
Friday, Day 4 of 24 Days of Togetherness, was “buy each other $5 gifts.” Quinn and I ran some errands in the afternoon, so I bought him a jingle bell that he instantly fell in love with while we shopped at Michaels.
For Mal, I bought his favorite flavors of Quest Bars. Mal ended up having a really busy day, so he wasn’t able to buy me anything, but he offered me a 10-minute massage instead, which was just as good (maybe better?) than a $5 gift!
On Saturday morning, I headed to KFIT for a partner workout, which was an awesome combo of cardio and strength. I was definitely feeling it by the end!
Day 5 of 24 Days of Togetherness was “make a Christmas drawing,” which is always a fun activity for us. Mal and I play a game where one of us draws a crazy shape and the other person makes it into something festive with their drawing skills. We decided to make a combined drawing so Quinn could be involved this year.
That night, we went to a friends’ holiday party. It was a blast, and I drank way too much wine. ‘Tis the season?
Thankfully, Quinn slept until 7:15 AM (!!!) on Sunday morning, so I didn’t feel all that bad when I woke up.
Later that morning, I ran 8 miles with Marisa and then enjoyed a wonderful brunch back at her apartment. Running + brunch with friends = the best.
Day 6 was “drink hot chocolate,” so we broke out some Starbucks Salted Caramel Hot Cocoa. Dark hot chocolate with rich, salted caramel? Helllllo!
I made mine using soy milk and, holy cow, it was incredible. You guys need to try this hot chocolate. It will not disappoint!
Would you rather time!
