On Friday we finally got the tree decorated and pressies wrapped. It’s feeling like Christmas in the house!
Saturday morning I hit the streets early for a run before Bootcamp. I decided to carry the camera to snap some pics of one of my favourite winter wonderland running routes. The trails look quite a bit different than they did in October.
I had parked my car at the gym, so I grabbed my bag after the run and headed inside for a quick wardrobe change for Bootcamp. Bathroom stall self-portrait!! (you know you’re a
freak blogger when….)
After a good body-busting sweat-fest, I hustled home to get ready for a fun photoshoot with my siblings for Mom’s Christmas gift. We laughed our butts off traipsing through the snow, trying to figure out how to work the tripod and self-timer. Here’s one of the out-takes:
L-R: sister A, me, Hubs, brother J, sister E’s BF, sister E
+ Penny the family dog!
Saturday afternoon/evening it was off to the father-in-law’s for Christmas dinner. We exchanged pressies, had a great meal and got to hang with our cutie nieces.
Sunday morning was our second annual Santa bRUNch with the running posse. We all get dressed up, go for a long(ish) run, eat food, drink spiked coffee and be merry!
I’m waiting on the group shot (there were about 30 of us!) but here are a few that I took. We got plenty of honks, waves and big smiles from drivers (a pleasant change from when they try to run us off the road). How could you NOT smile at this bunch?
Secret Santa Stash:
I had one more festive party to get to, and boogied straight from the brunch to my friend L’s downtown. We had a great afternoon with all the girls
eating candy decorating gingerbread houses, playing Taboo and catching up on gossip. We recently stumbled upon this pic at the same get-together in 2008 with my plate of cookies and decided to do a re-take.
How was your weekend? 5 sleeps til Christmas!
