I hope everyone is having a great Monday! I know I am, and I’m so excited to get to today’s MIMM post! 🙂

As always, I’ll be recapping the weekend. Yesterday I talked about Friday night, so we’ll start with Saturday morning.

We slept in until freaking 9:30 am on Saturday!! I couldn’t believe it. Of course we were up until 2:30 in morning, so really we only got 7 hours of sleep. But 9:30 still felt so late! I made some coffee as soon as we got up, and then shortly after that I laced up my Pure Flows and went out for a 4 mile run. The weather was amazing. I was wearing shorts and a tank top in DECEMBER! Awesome.


Once I got back home, I showered and made some lunch. It still felt like morning time, and I was craving breakfast food. Soooo I made some pancakes with a little almond butter and sugar free maple syrup!


A little while later I had an apple as well.

Chad and I spent the afternoon doing some Christmas shopping. We like to make things for our family and friends, so the majority of our time was spent at Hobby Lobby.


I think we got everything we need!

Once 5:00 rolled around, it was time to head up to the church to meet my 7th and 8th grade Sunday school class. We were taking them out to eat for a little Christmas party. We went to Umi for some hibachi grill action!


As usual, they started us off with soup and salad, and we also ordered some hot tea for the adults. 🙂 For my main meal, I went with the chicken and extra veggies (no rice).

After dinner, we took the kids back to the youth building to play games (Wii, ping pong, Foosball) until their parents came to pick them up.

Sunday was the same as always with an early church service, Sunday school, and a late service. For lunch, we couldn’t decide what to do, so it was “every man for himself.” I fixed some spaghetti squash with a crumbled veggie burger, marinara sauce, and Parmesan.

sunday lunch

Chad laughed at my “fake spaghetti,” but it was actually pretty awesome…. and I saved probably 200+ calories.

Later that night, we had a little surprise for our youth at church. Chad divided them into teams, and they had a gingerbread house building competition while watching Rudolph on the big screen. I mentioned that Rudolph is one of my favorite Christmas movies, so I watched it the entire time, except when I had to judge the houses.


There was no Walking Dead to come home to watch, so we were kind of at a loss for what to do with ourselves. We ended up going to Fiesta for dinner, and yep, another fajita. 😉


As for today, I started the morning with Best Body Bootcamp workout C since I missed this one on Friday. I only had about 20 minutes for the actual workout, so I only completed the circuit twice, but I pushed myself so that I could really get in a good workout. It felt great!

An omelet for breakfast as usual…


Then I was off to work! I had an extra pep in my step today because all I could think about is that we have one week until our Christmas show is over, and then one more week until a well deserved break! 🙂

After work, I came straight home and dug into a delicious Quest Bar. These things are so amazing warmed up in the microwave for 10 seconds.


Tonight, Chad and I are getting all dressed up for our church’s annual Administrative Board Banquet. The food is so amazing, so I’ll be sure to get some pictures!

And now that we’ve all seen how marvelous this weekend and today has been so far, I can get into today’s Christmas Challenge!


Favorite Holiday Scent:

I love EVERY holiday smell. Literally. But if I had to pick just one, I think I’d pick anything that smells like gingerbread! mmmmmm 🙂

      That sounds so fun! Take pictures!! I always buy my Quest bars at GNC as singles but have wanting to order a bunch online. Did you order yours by the flavor or were you able to get a bunch of different flavors?

      Well thanks to crazy Alabama weather, I won’t be wearing shorts again anytime soon. It’s going to be in the low 30s for the rest of the week! 😦

      Aw thanks! I always feel like people don’t want to read about any of those things, but I’m glad to know you enjoy it! 🙂
