Decorating with Bing Crosby

The past few days, Justin has been running the household.



Elf Camo


Andrew and I were able to get the tree decorated


With Bing Crosby Christmas on Pandora. We also made funny faces, and made up some new dance moves


We only had one casualty 😦


It turned out great!


Tomorrow, we will finish putting the lights outside!

Question for you:

What is your favorite Christmas song?

-I could listen to any Bing Crosby song

Getting ready for East coast visitors!

In just ONE day, Angela, Tiffany, and Rob will be here to run the marathon! (I think I’ve mentioned it a few times…..)

Only because I am So excited! The day started with a trip to Sam’s for groceries, and then yoga. I was STILL tight from my run a few days ago. (Hollie you were right, I NEED to stretch more!)

favorite pose. although Im STARTING to like downward dog

Then it was time for Trader Joe’s (just some of my things I picked up)

This looks much better

Yum pumpkin butter

Also started to get stuff together for the race. Charging the IPOD while listening to Stereo Hearts Radio on Pandora

I also just finished surrendering playing light sabers and guns with Andrew and two of his friends. I think I won…. haha

Tomorrow: deep cleaning the kitchen and bathrooms, start crock pot dinner, go for a LIGHT run, there was something else….darn it. It will come to me haha

My new favorite song

Question for you:

Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods?

-Thats a tough one. I LOVE whole foods (its bigger) but trader joe’s is a better price

Christmas Presents

Today started out by sleeping in (won’t be doing that for awhile since Andrew will be on break. I started the morning w/ coffee and an egg/PB/Banana sandwich. YUM!

While wrapping, I had Pandora w/ the Bing Crosby Holiday. Loved it. Im sure people could hear me outside. I have a beautiful voice haha

I then got to packing.

 I loved this present! too pretty to open 🙂

And this was another favorite. (pssttt there are star wars pj pants in there haha)

On Christmas Eve, Andrew will be able to open the present with his pjs. Of course he wears them that night!

He will also be able to open the ornament. This year I made his by super glueing the pieces together of a small lego. Now I just need to figure out how to hang it on the tree……………………………haha

The little fellow only had a half day, so I picked him up and we made some cookies. I first made some Paleo cookies (I got some coconut flour!) The cream cheese frosting is not paleo. Andrew was my taste tester!

(did you spot justin?)

Here are some of the recipes we used:

cream cheese frosting
Paleo sugar cookies

Im so excited for christmas! Now we are ready to go! Im a little bummed though. Tonight, there doesn’t seem to be any christmas movies on tv 😦

Question for you:

What family traditions do you have?
