A lot to be thankful for

Did any one else’s long weekend absolutely fly by? Can we get a do over up in here?!

Thanksgiving Thursday was amazing. At kind of the last minute, hubs and I had to cancel our plans to go out of town, so it was just us two. Hubs ended up having to work all weekend. Poor thing. Such a hardworking man. Luckily, he was able to break away for a bit to have a nice breakfast and dinner.

When we woke up, I made the most freaking delicious (not to toot my own horn or anything but toooooot) French toast casserole.

Uhm, yes… Amazeballs. It was so filling that we just skipped lunch and went straight for dinner next. I went to Pier 1 and got some things to make our table look so romanticle.

On the menu was stuffing, salad, green bean casserole, rolls, and STEAK.

Yeah, we decided to ditch the idea of cooking a turkey. They kinda terrify me. Steak on the other hand, sign me up! It was a wonderful meal. We need to eat at our table more often. We spent the whole time chatting about anything and everything. I seriously love this man.

Ok, I’m done being a sap.

Friday, I went Black Friday shopping… FROM MY COUCH. Stores are giving the same deals online that they give in the store, so why the heck not?!

American Eagle had 40% off of EVERYTHING!

Christmas outfit COMPLETE!

I also seriously scored at personalizationmall.com. They had 30% off the whole store, plus I had a google offer that gave me $40 worth of stuff for $20, plus I had a 10% coupon code, PLUS ebates had 15% cash back! Yeah… I scored.

I also had one of the best runs in a longggg time. I did 3 miles in 31:28 and loved every second of it. Major runners high.

Saturday, I decided to brave the insanity that was downtown Seattle to do some shopping! It also meant I could go to the Seattle Marathon expo! At the expo, I got to see my long lost Ragnar teammate Kim!!

I adore this lady! She is so fab that decorated her race bib just for me!

Yeah, she is rad.

The rest of the weekend was spent cleaning, watching movies, and being über lazy. It. Was. Glorious. I also was able to get another kick ass run in on Sunday. 3.2 miles in 33:51. I did some killer intervals but my legs loved going fast. They didn’t want to stop! Gotta love that!

Hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving weekend!

  1. Oh that sounds like the perfect weekend! Congrats on the awesome runs too!!

  2. I don’t know how I missed this post the other day. Sorry that you had to cancel your plans to go out of town. Last year we had to stay in Spokane for Thanksgiving so I know how you feel. It looks like you made the best of it though. My husband’s favorite breakfast thing to eat is french toast so you might need to share your recipe.

    I didn’t do black Friday shopping, but took part in some cyber Monday shopping. Got my husband 3 gifts and my mom one gift. Also got my niece 2 gifts so I have made a small dent in the gift arena. Love your Christmas outfit.The pants are cute, but I am not sure I could pull them off.
