French Friday

I made it to FRIDAY, wasn’t sure this day would ever come! I can’t believe the crazy week I have had, and it’s not completely over.

  • Monday-AD Meeting for Fall Sports Awards
  • Tuesday-Winter Sports Meeting+ Truth Project 
  • Wednesday Teach Kickboxing+ Have Coffee with a friend
  • Thursday- Thursday Night Group (spontaneous date) 
  • Friday-Decorate for Christmas
  • Saturday- 13 mile run + Wedding!
  • Sunday- 10k race+ Leave for Work Retreat in Santa Barbara

When the alarm went off this morning I made a quick decision to stay in bed. I had a little sore throat, which for me is always a sign that I need rest! I have a 13 mile run tomorrow as well as a 10k on Sunday, I can not get sick.

For breakfast I went through the fridge and got creative. I took two Arnold thins and made Apple Cran French Toast!

So simple. I just dipped the thins in one egg + one egg white+ a little soy. Cooked them on the stove and then topped them with Pumpkin Butter+Nuke Cinnamon Apples+Fresh Cranberry Sauce.

I also had some Emergen-C!

    Tonight I am super excited because Hubby and I are decorating for Christmas. Why so early? Well, because we are going to be out of town until December 2nd and when we get home I wanted everything to be out and ready. When we decorate, Hubby and I play Christmas music drink hot coco and just take in all the JOY and Spirit of the Holiday!

    Question: When do you start decorating for Christmas???

    My thoughts and prayers are with your aunt and family! (((huggs!)))
    We don't usually decorate until the first weekend in Dec, but this year the hubbs and I are doing the weekend after Thanksgiving. We are going to Tahoe for Christmas and want to enjoy it at home for as long as we can!
    Have a great Friday! ;)

    every once in a while i will leave our 'artificial' tree up all year long and decorate it for each month. jan-new years, feb-valentines, march-st. patty. etc. then the years i don't want to do it we have a real tree. this really confuses the cats

    I have a strict policy of no Christmas decorations until after Thanksgiving. This usually means getting a tree the day after :-) I LOVE Christmas!

    Are you taking Bosco with you on your trip (or on long trips away from home)?

    I like to start decorating the day after Thanksgiving. Don't feel I should start working on Christmas until after Thanksgiving has passed. This year we will even let Tyler help. And we'll probably have some hot cocoa and Christmas music, too! Makes it so much more fun.And we may even do some Christmas type crafts this year, too.

    I hope you are feeling better!

    I really don't care for the holidays, so I don't decorate at all.
