They just belong together.

December 6, 2013

Day #5 of our 25 Days of Christmas Traditions was a fun one.  We went down to Harmons (my favorite grocery store in the world besides Trader Joe’s) and picked up food to donate to the local food bank.  Brooke was just happy about the whole deal because she got a sticker.  For free.

Paige has been out of town for a little while (she is not allowed to leave again) and she brought back the best Joe-Joe’s for us.  Peppermint and chocolate belong together.  

PS I want her dog so bad.  

IMG 5001

We got home and we were ready for dinner.  We snacked on snap peas while getting dinner ready.  Brooke likes to measure her veggies to make sure she gets her 5 A Day.  

The other day I tried snap peas dipped in guacamole and it was delicious, my mom thought I was crazy.

We don’t mess around when it comes to waffle irons.  

IMG 4997

Once Brooke went down to bed I hit up the movie theater with Candice (we met through the internet 3 years ago… we are cool like that).

Gravity.  Go see it.   I was stressed out the entire movie but I kind of like that for some weird reason?  Sandra Bullock was amazing as usual.  

Kettle corn is always a must when we are together.

I have seen more movies in a theater in the last month than the last 5 years combined.  

We made a pretty good dent on our kettle corn.

Best license plate ever.

Just a little slippery out.

Another treadmill run for me this morning.  I wonder if I will ever run again outside in the year 2013.  Probably not.  

HAPPY FRIDAY!!!! What are your weekend plans?!?!

Megan December 6, 2013 at 5:02 am

Eek that weather!!! I am spending a few weeks in upstate NY with my parents this year and the weather is in the teens and just like that. They don’t have a treadmill though and I am forced outside.. BRRRRRR. DC is the best for a nice non snowy / icy winter!

Great activity for day 5! I’m jealous your movie theater has kettle corn! Ours only has the butter flavor. This weekend we are driving to the hill country for a family getaway. I can’t wait :)

That parking lot is quite the ice rink!!! I for some reason thought Gravity was done in the theatres, so that’s good to know b/c I want to see it!
This is the only weekend in 5 weeks where I don’t have major plans, so I will be catching up on things such as housework, Christmas shopping, and the ever-important task of watching Netflix!

Yikes, that parking lot is what Memphis might look like this weekend! Hope y’all are bein’ safe out there.

Supposed to be runnin’ St. Jude Memphis Marathon tomorrow, but everybody is freaking out about possible ice. St. Jude officials say they’re gonna make a call 5 AM on race day. Crossing fingers everything’s a go. This is supposed to be my Big goal race.

I haven’t ran outside for 2 weeks! I miss it.. the treadmill just isn’t the same. But it is way to dang cold.. ps why does happy valley have to be an hour away from me? Id hang out with you every night.

Oh my goodness! That parking lot scares me!!! Be careful. Brooke is so cute. These Christmas traditions are so awesome. She’s going to look back one day and love these traditions. They will make Christmas special.
You better stay on that treadmill if that’s what it looks like outside. Not worth risking an injury.
I’m going to make a gingerbread house with my daughter and host a bridal shower for my cousin. Somewhere in there I need to squeeze in 15 miles ;)

Those peppermint Joe-Joe’s barely last a day in my house! I know they will be going in my cart tomorrow, along with some other season favorites at TJ’s.

That parking lot looks ridicoulous to manuver. So much ice!

Thsi weekend, I am working tomorrow morning. Then my youngest has her first basketball game of the season. Hoping she doesn’t get hit in the head and bust open her stitches! Then I have to take other daughter to a football party and then to a formal 16th birthday party at the country club. Hoping to run at the gym sometime in there!

Sunday is church, Christmas shopping and another indoor run.

I can’t go see Gravity because my husband informed me one of his greatest fears is being lost in space and just seeing the previews stress him out. Didn’t even know that until now!! My weekend plans are going to involve a lot of hanging around the house. We’ve gotten a big snow storm, and everything in my part of the world shuts down when that happens!!

My husband got me a treadmill for Christmas, and since he couldn’t hide it, I got it already. I seriously run on it every minute that I’m not doing something else. I love it sooooo much! I instantly thought of you when I got it. It’s not as fancy as yours, but it does the trick. I just run and run and run while watching Netflix and I’m like, “This is like my hero Janae!” — although I’m running A LOT slower than you.

I agree on Gravity! It was very stressful but Sandra B. did a great job. I thought the movie was good but then I thought about how she basically carried the entire thing herself and realized it wasn’t just good but great!

I thought Gravity was really intense and I thought the movie was great. It has given me a little fear of ever being out in space, but thankfully going out into space will never be something I will have to do.

I have a very busy weekend. I am picking my husband up from the airport on Saturday as he was been away for two weeks with work (I did visit him for a week though). Then we have to come home and get changed to go to a friends fancy dress birthday party! I cannot wait as I am going as a Glee Cheerio and he is going as the Cookie Monster!

Then on Sunday I have a half marathon!!! I am excited and nervous as it is my second half marathon I have ever run (the first was back in 2010).

I’m planning a long run on Sunday which will most likely be on the treadmill due to the super cold temperatures that just rolled in and possible snow. I mentally have such a tough time on the treadmill taking a quick walk break each mile or by doing 1/2 mile intervals with some weights in between to break it up. I’m getting better though! I would like to go see a movie this weekend, any excuse to eat a tub of movie theatre movie I love!

I do not like popcorn but I like kettle corn…I think because it’s sweeter?

People who have seen Gravity have told me not to see it because I get migraines and they think the space will give me a migraine. I want to see it SO BAD.

I’m kind of kicking myself for not going to see Gravity while the boy was in town. We were going to see it, but ended up going to Catching Fire and Frozen instead. Looks like a girl’s night at the movies is in order. Maybe this weekend since it’s pretty much going to be impossible to do anything outside. So.darn.cold.

You need a dog!!! What a great tradition. I am visiting my grandma in Rhode Island this weekend.
Does having to run on the treadmill frustrate you at all?

Lots of ice! Drive safe…LOVE that license plate.
My weekend plans is a long run with my running club. And our neighborhood Christmas Parade is tonight! And of course our weekly pizza and movie night : )

Wow, that looks more like a skating rink than a parking lot! My weekend will be a nice long run (though like you it’ll be another treadmill one), curling up with a new book, dinner with my family and I’m hoping to go see Catching Fire as well. I’m soo excited about that!

we had a 5k this morning and it was 9 and the windchill was -4. Not horrible, but for my 6 yr old, he did great.
