Christmas is over. (sigh)
I have mixed feelings about this.
In a way, this Christmas season was stressful.¬†Thanksgiving was so late. Christmas came so fast. I was super busy at work. I felt like there was no time to shop, plan, cook, chop down a tree, send out cards etc… The on going Christmas music started to annoy me.
But in¬†another light, I am sad to see it go.
I love shopping at the Christmas market in DC. And seeing a random person dressed up as Santa really puts you in the Christmas spirit.
Also during Christmas time. My house looks amazing with classy Christmas decorations. I loved all of the Christmas cards I received. They are my favorite!
My dogs love Christmas more than anyone I know.
Especially my maltese.
We ate my homemade¬†lasagna – the sauce was my nana’s recipe.
On Christmas day, we woke up early, and went to my mom’s to open presents. We all gave and received some great gifts.
Later we ate lobsters for Christmas dinner.
I baked Christmas cookies.
Then for dessert we ate my homemade Mexican Hot Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Buttermilk Frosting. The cake is gluten free.
Everything was delicious.
The day after Christmas, my sister and I did a little shopping. I definitely have a new outfit to wear every day of this week. She got some great stuff too. I know this isn’t a fashion blog, but I’ll post my outfits on instagram just in case you are interested in what I wear when I am not in workout clothes. ¬†Oh p.s. Did you know free people now has workout clothes? They are pretty stylish.
On Saturday, we did Christmas with my husbands parents. It was fun to open more presents, and hear all about their lovely time spent in Idaho. Lucky for them, they had a White Christmas.
At the end, of it all, my favorite part about the holiday is eating good food, drinking good drinks, and hanging out with loved ones. Oh and watching some great Christmas movie.
I hope everyone had a lovely holiday!¬†
What’s your favorite thing about the holidays? Did you receive any awesome fitness related presents?
