Hello!! It’s always so hard to come back to work after an extended weekend. I was off work for 5 glorious days, and I’m feeling it this morning!
How was everyone’s Thanksgiving?? Ours was absolutely lovely, and filled with family, food and fun! Thursday we were able to spend time with both of our families and filled our bellies a little too much. It was worth it!!
Friday my mom and my bestie and I headed out to the mall by 4am. This year was a little different though, as the kids were all awake and came with us!! Josh, Ava and my cousin Breanna joined us and split off as soon as we arrived. We gave them some cash and said, “Pick out a few things for Christmas!” We had breakfast around 9am and then headed home…to NAP! It was so much fun! Josh grabbed some Beatles socks, a record or two and a few other items he was hoping for. I just can’t remember what they are…I’ll be surprised when I go to wrap. 🙂 Besides a few gift cards, we are DONE our shopping! Woohoo!!!
Saturday I had my first craft show of the season. It benefited a local church preschool program and there were so many amazing vendors there!! I set up my jewelry and some of my wood signs and pictures. I was pretty pleased with my sales, but I spent most of it on goods for myself. LOL! Lularoe, Posh, handmade banners, etc. We have another craft market this Sunday and next at the Natural Foods store and then a big one on 12/15 at a local high school. That one benefits a marching band, so you know I’m on that!! I’ll always be a marching band mama! I have a lot to work on this week to be ready for the shows!! Here are a couple pictures from Saturday:
It was so nice to relax yesterday until it was time to take Josh back to school. The house will be quiet (and clean!) again for the next 3 weeks until Winter break begins, but I will miss my boy so much!!! We will see him on Saturday for his winter concert, though.
I’m starting another Arbonne 30 day cleanse from now until Christmas Eve today. I did a lot of meal prep when I returned home from taking Josh. Muffins, Turkey and vegetable soup, salad. I feel so much better when I’m eating properly. I have no regrets of the past weekend though. I was still mindful of everything I ate. Did I have a slice of pie? yep, but just one. Did I have a few sugar free Starbucks Latte’s? Oh, yes I did and I enjoyed every sip…until the acid gave me an upset stomach.
Busy week ahead! What’s on YOUR agenda??
