I honestly can’t believe December is here. Where did 2013 go?! The good thing about December is that everything becomes Christmas! I had a great long weekend and am definitely not ready to go back to school. Only 3 weeks, then it’s Christmas break!
Some marvelous happenings from the weekend:
On Friday Mom and I (and my dad and step-mom) went out to dinner with one of my mom’s good friends! She is a vegan so it was neat to talk with her about food! In the past I would’ve not gone because I would be scared I wouldn’t like anything on the menu. Most of it was fish, but I found something that sounded amazing – Bruschetta Pasta!
Why haven’t I thought of that before?! It was so delicious. Look at all the butter…
It was good fuel for my 10 mile run!
I didn’t eat breakfast before so I was anxious to see how it went. I really didn’t even feel hungry during the run!
Refueling the right way.
I got a haircut! It was much needed. Just a trim!
The Christmas tree went up! Along with all the other decorations. Please excuse my terrible iPhone pics.
I would start expecting a lot of cat/tree pictures coming in the future.. 😉
We didn’t make any dessert because she had leftover Thanksgiving dessert – AKA these mystery bars that were better than pumpkin pie. Pumpkin on bottom, cake(?) in the middle, and nuts on top.
We watched a few movies and were off to bed!
We had some toast in the morning. I have converted another to the most perfect combination ever created by man.
Then I went for a run with Laura (~6.5 miles), went to open gym, then to my team dinner!
This is the first sloppy joe I’ve had since I was probably 4. And you know what?! I enjoyed it! There was also cheesy potatoes which I’m not a big fan of, but I ate them anyway. Also taco dip, veggies, and fruit! So rather than not eating anything, I ate what was there and it wasn’t even bad!
Obviously I had no problem with the dessert table – pumpkin bars and brownies, count me in!
In other news, my first game is on Tuesday! I have no idea how it came so quick. I’m so excited! Bring on basketball season 😀
Rest in Peace, Paul Walker. This weekend we lost a great actor and truly amazing person. You will be missed!
Have a good Monday!
