However, if you want to do something to teach your kids about the less fortunate this Christmas and have a really good time, call your local Salvation Army and volunteer to ring bells.
And, yes, I mentioned a race. The Bah Humbug 5K (what a fun name!). It benefits the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and had a new venue this year. It ran through Antique Alley which is a really cool downtown area full of antique shops. It was a 2 loop course.
I was okay with my time (around 31:11). I am well aware that I can do better, but some calf and ankle problems coupled with too much alcohol the night before didn't go well together. But, I had fun, so what more could you want? I met up with a few people I knew beforehand and then went out for an awesome breakfast afterward.
I have made a new friend and here we are after the race was over. She also had a friend with her and this was her first EVER 5K. How fun!!
We went to IHOP afterwards and I ate the most amazing breakfast EVER. Nutella crepes with bananas inside and strawberries outside. I couldn't finish more than about half, but it was amazing!!
I also received some goodies in the mail this week. I ordered from Lift Your Sole on Monday when Tall Mom posted a Cyber Monday Sale. I ordered Monday and received on Thursday. Super fast! The necklace is gorgeous and very high quality. It came in a cute envelope with STICKERS too. How fun!
Here is the necklace. CUTE! There is a story here and when I can type it all out in detail without boo hooing (the kids are playing in the room with me right now) I will have to tell it.
I hope you are having a great weekend! :)
