I received a lovely Christmas card today from our friends Jill and Mike with the cutest idea inside:
She placed a little note in the card with a ribbon about cutting the front o fthe card up to make Xmas labels. Awesome. I LOVE this! I never heard of it, nor thought of it before! I usually make labels out of wrapping paper if I run out of the sticky snowman labels—but these are even prettier and more clever. I know what I will be doing from here on out!
I just had to share!
What are your favorite DIY holiday ideas?
Michael, Ella and I did some damage tonight at the KOP mall. Christmas shopping is almost done! I can’t wait to start wrapping! I also can not wait to start baking. I am thinking of doing some of my doughs ahead of time. What have you successfully made ahead and kept in the fridge…I don’t really want to freeze anything. I have made cookie dough about a week ahead in the past. I can’t wait to use my new secret ingredient this year in my vanilla bean cookies. Ella has already learned to want to get at the paddle attachment from some of the things I bake for her. Smart girl.
My workout today was this one. Then I ran one mile of HIIT intervals and did 1 mile of HIIT on the cross-trainer.
This is my new favorite “I hate to run” treadmill workout:
It kills me but I was particularly not feeling it all out today. My knees have been fabulous since I have really upped my yoga practice—but this week I started feeling some junk in my MCL. Usually it’s my IT band that bothers me, but that’s been just fine! Foam rolling was in order. Well, I foam roll every day regardless but I paid extra attention to my legs this week.
We have Mike’s work Christmas party tomorrow night at a place that looks absolutely gorgeous. I still have nothing to wear. My recycle previous Holiday dresses and wear either of these:
The first is SO old and I do not look like I did in it 3 years ago so we’ll see about that. However, I do have more boobage to fill out the top (that always fell down from my lack thereof) The other is from last year so I feel kind of lame but it’s a classic.I have another option from my brother’s fiancé that I’m picking up tomorrow to try. If you didn’t figure it out already, I am really not the fashionista I look to be. Ha!
Anyways, Hope all is well. Chat later.
Bursting your bubble:
Friends that use Xylitol for sugar-free baking this season may want to check out this post. Glad I never picked any up. Yikes.I never knew any of this!
