HOW is it December 18th already? I feel like it was just Thanksgiving, and I couldn’t wait to get going all things Christmas and now it’s just a week away. Holy cow. I mean, remember when you were a kid and Christmas took FOREVER to get here? Now, it just flies by too fast. Anyway, we enjoyed quite the holiday-filled weekend. Here’s a little recap!


On Friday night, Mal and I had the pleasure of attending Quinn’s school’s rendition of the “Night Before Christmas.” He had such a blast signing and dancing with the other kids on stage.

He was a reindeer and the cutest one ever.

Post-pageant, I enjoyed quite the tasty Caulipower Margarita Pizza. Really, this is the best cauliflower pizza crust I’ve ever tried. Ok, well, their Three Cheese is the best flavor I’ve tried, but all of them are really good! Even Mal and Quinn will eat them!


Mal had “Saturday School” on Saturday morning, so it was just Quinn and me flying solo, but I lovvvvvee our “Quinn and Mumma” days so much. We started with CrossFit. I did a really tough partner workout while he played with friends.

Then, we took a quick stop at Coffee Shack for an iced coffee and a donut.

Then, we made another stop at Trader Joe’s because we had nooooo food at home.

Finally, we went to soccer practice!

Later that night, Mal and I met up with a bunch of friends for dinner and drinks at Scarlet Oak Tavern – one of my favorite restaurants! 🙂

After dinner, we met up with the CrossFit crew at The Range (another favorite) for the Salt Shack holiday party. Good times!


Sunday morning kicked off with pancakes made by “Catboy.”

The rest of the day involved errands, meal prep, and playing around the house.

It was quite the nice weekend!

Questions of the Day

How was your weekend?

Are you ready for Christmas or is it coming too soon? 

Do you like cauliflower pizza crust? 



  1. Yay on the blog being up again! We missed ya! My daughter loves PJ Masks and Catboy, too 😀 I’m on week 2 of a DTFN plan and meal prep was also in full force on Sunday. I’m burying my head in the sand about it being Christmas already! I always get a touch of the blues in January after so much great activity and family time on Nov/Dec.

      1. I’m really liking it, and so is my husband who has to go along with it because I’m the only one that cooks My favorite recipe so far has been the peanut butter cup overnight oats. It legit tastes like a bowl of Reese’s!

  2. What a fun weekend! Holiday parties are always a great addition to holiday weekends. We had one, too! And I definitely think December is flying by way too quickly. It definitely moved at a snail’s pace when I was a kid. And I’ve yet to find a cauliflower crust I enjoy. I had one from TJ’s, but it cooked unevenly and I was left with, well, a gooey crust. No Bueno. Maybe this one is different!
