The week leading up to Christmas is always a little crazy. Lots of activities and last minute prep work. This week was no exception. But before I jump into the craziness – I wanted to share a few pictures of Christmas in our new house!
Monday after work, my mom and I were going to go to my old high school’s choir concert. I love their Christmas concert every year. I had a pretty active day, so I didn’t grab a workout before the concert.
Tuesday night was a potluck dinner at work. Since I got home early enough, I made sure to get in 2 miles on the treadmill.
I didn’t have a lot of time after work for a workout, AND I didn’t have time to shower. So I just walked 1.5 miles on the treadmill, washed up, and headed to my mom’s house for her annual Dirty Santa ornament exchange. I ended up leaving with the same ornament I brought because I love it so much!
On Thursday, I took a half day off of work. I had a lot of last minute errands to run before our Christmas celebrations. We drove around to find some pretty lights and found this cool house nearby:
I got in 2.5 miles before all the chaos started on Friday. I took the day off to prepare for our big family dinner (my stepdad’s family). We had 21 people over our house for dinner.
Sorry about the sideways picture – I can’t get it to turn correctly!
On Saturday, I convinced my husband to walk 2.5 miles with me around the neighborhood. We had an otherwise relaxing day before dinner & Christmas celebration with my dad and stepmom.
Sunday was Christmas Eve. I decided to take it easy. Since jumping back into working out, I’ve been extremely active and on my feet a lot. My lack of yoga and strength training has been affecting me and I can tell I’m super tight and my supporting muscles and ligaments were getting a little mad at me. We watched Christmas movies all day until it was time for Christmas Eve service with my mom and stepdad. Afterward, we opened presents with them.
Bonus Day: Monday – Christmas!
My husband and I got up and opened presents together Christmas morning. We both spoiled each other way too much. Afterward, we headed to my in-laws house for a late lunch/early dinner with my brother in law and my husband’s aunt. We had a great time!
How was your Christmas? Do you have any great traditions with your family?
