Home for the Holidays
Ho ho home. Yes, I am home for the holidays and boy, does it feel great! This morning I woke up early to go on a run with the ladies as I had promised yesterday. I was a bit scared that I would hold the group back since my running has been minimal between Thanksgiving and now, but somehow my body was able to run a solid 90 minutes – yahoo! I’m not gonna lie, my legs are stiff as a board.
Post-run breakfast was a big bowl of blueberry oats. There is something about oats at home (I think it’s our stove). Nothing compares…
- 1 cup water
- 2/3 cup rolled oats
- big blueberries
- nutty granola
- orange blossom honey
- splash of skim milk
+ fresh o.j.
Let us rewind to yesterday…
I got home around 3:00 in the afternoon after a slow 4-hour drive over the mountains. I lucked out with the weather, and didn’t encounter any scary ice or snow. My brother flew in yesterday too, so the nest is now full again : )
My dad had dough rising near the warm wood stove to make us all homemade pizza for dinner. It was topped with all sorts of goodness:
- Grilled Chicken
- Caramelized Onion
- Fresh Mozzarella
After dinner, the Christmas tunes were on turned and we got to town decorating our tree. I know the big day is less than a week away, but my parents know better to not decorate the tree without me ; )
A couple of my favorite ornaments:
I guarantee there will many more pictures of the tree and holiday decor, but the noon whistle just rang and I want to get through my agenda for the day…
- Unpack my life
- Finish decorating the tree
- ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas Ballet @ 6:00pm
