I'm So Not Ready for the Weekend…#saidnooneever

Hello and happy Friday. You know I'm ready for the weekend and I'm excited for everything on the agenda. Gym, double date, wreaths at Arlington cemetery, Christmas parties, good food and a soccer game. FUN times bazillion! Let's get into some faves, yeah?! #lego!

Favorite Recipe of the Week: I saw this hot cocoa recipe on another blog and I can't wait to try it this weekend. Who wants to try it with me?!?! #nutellamakeseverythingmoredelicious

Favorite Realization of the Week: Macaulay Culkin was in the Nutcracker! NO LIE! I was watching one of the hundred versions out there and about fell out of my chair when I saw Macaulay's lil face. He is sooo cute, despite the fact he wasn't a dancer and the whole ballet was beautiful. #homealonetoballet


Favorite link of the Week: MSN posted a link that highlighted hilarious children's notes. Below is my favorite, but you need to check out the link because there are some HYSTERICAL NOTES! #fromthemouthsofbabes.

Favorite Pin of the Week: Sometimes the hustle & bustle becomes too loud and we lose the true meaning of the holiday season. I pinned this last week and have been mindful ever since I read it. So far, I think I've done pretty well not letting stress get the best of me. This season I want to  s e n d PEACE and be the light.

Favorite video of The Week: The Grinch. Doing yoga. You're welcome. [keep the volume low]

I hope you have a wonderful weekend, ladies.

My lil bit of cheer today is good news I received yesterday. After 2+ weeks of no workouts, per a doctor, I FINALLY am cleared to workout again! HALLELUJAH! I went on a 3 mile run yesterday and it felt amazing. It wasn't the fastest, or easiest run, but it was still incredible. HOOORAY for workouts, whoop whoop!

Happy Friday! Nutella hot chocolate sounds amazing! Seriously laughing so hard, Macaulay Culkin in the Nutcracker. Who knew?!? That list is awesome and such a nice reminder about the reasons for the session. Have a great weekend!

Kristen said...

oh my gosh the grinch doing yoga, i laughed so hard (thank you for the volume warning lol)
i love hot chocolate but not a fan of nutella.. i know, i know!
i have never ever even seen any version of the nutcracker, i am waiting to see it in NYC but afterwards i might try and find the Macaulay Culkin version - look how little he was!

Christy Ashley said...

Love that to do list! Also, nutella hot chocolate...I've seen a bunch of recipes floating out there and they're all super complicated. Here's what you do. Boil milk. Whisk in heaping tablespoons of nutella (usually about 2 per cup)...that's it. Super easy. I do it with soy milk and it's extra creamy!

Alisha said...

Loved that Instagram photo so much, so, so true!! YAY for more workouts!! And the notes from kids... SO FUNNY!!

kimm atwood said...
