Good morning and happy Monday, friends!
Can you believe Christmas is THIS week!?! Holy cow. Where did December go?! It totally flew, right? But, of course, I’m looking forward to spending the day with family and watching Quinn open his presents. Yayyyyyy! We only bought him a few things, but I know he will lovvvveee all of them!
So we had a nice weekend over here– nothing too exciting to report, but we did a number of fun festive holiday activities (via 24 Days of Togetherness) and very much enjoyed our time together. That said, here are some favorites from the weekend!
Baking holiday cookies! We used prepackaged refrigerated vanilla sugar cookie dough from Immaculate, and it was epic. It’s made with wholesome, non-GMO ingredients and tastes sooooo good! Our cookies turned out so soft and chewy!
Checking out Nate Berkus’s holiday collection at Target. I ended up buying this for our house and seriously considered buying a set of these. I know Quinn would have loved them! Maybe I should go back? You can never have enough holiday decorations, right?
Making Christmas pancakes with my boys! We had so much fun!
Stumbling upon this video for a Cinnamon Roll French Toast Bake. I plan to make it for Christmas morning with my family! Ommmggggggg! It’s going to be so delicious!
Visiting Bass Pro Shop with Quinn! There was so much to see! He absolutely loved it!
Being silly at dinner. We went out to dinner after visiting Bass Pro Shop and we had such a fun time together, playing games and laughing a lot!
Father-son selfies. I left my phone for 5 minutes during dinner! And there’s actually about a dozen variations of the photo below on my iPhone. Haha!
Salmon. I go through phases with salmon. Sometimes I love it; sometimes it’s too fishy for me. Right now, I’m in a salmon-loving phase!
Speaking of winter coats… I wore mine for the first time this season. It finally feels like winter here! (Man, I hope I’m ready. I’m still scarred after last year.)
This 45-minute treadmill workout. It’s been my favorite for years, and I still love doing it. (I actually shared it on CNC just 2 weeks after starting the blog!) I did this workout at the gym yesterday and then ran another 3 miles for a total of 8! Boom.
This sloth tea infuser. Yep, that’s right. Sloth. There’s just something insanely adorable about them, right?
Quinn’s laugh. We laughed a whole lot this weekend. Hearing my little monkey crack up makes my heart so happy!
