Thanksgiving Weekend Recap

Sami's Shenanigans

Happy Monday, JNSPers! I hope you had an awesome long weekend and a great holiday. I know I did!

My mom and I kicked off Thanksgiving with a Turkey Trot 5k, and it was such a great way to start the day. I didn't PR my 5k time, but I ran (almost) the whole way. It was my first bout with cold-weather running, and I loved it! I have a couple more races coming up, so I will be running more often which will hopefully help me PR.

Side note: I got my first pair of running tights, and they are PURPLE! I super puffy heart love them! 

I think I mentioned it before, but Kyra and I hosted Thanksgiving. It was my first time hosting a holiday get together, and it was really awesome. Kyra did pretty much all of the cooking while I got the apartment cleaned, organized, etc. We made a pretty good team, aka no major disasters or fights! Woohoo!

Friday, I worked from home which translates to me laying on the couch in my PJs while I worked on my laptop. It was 10 kinds of glorious! Friday evening, I went over to a girlfriend's house to hang out and have pizza & wings. Gotta love girl talk and chick flicks!

Saturday was a lazy day mostly, but Kyra and I saw Catching Fire with my sister and brother-in-law. It was an awesome movie! I have read all of the Hunger Games books, and the movie aligned really closely with the book. Even if you haven't read the books, I highly recommend watching the movies!

On Sunday, I went wedding dress shopping with my cousin who has been my BFF since I was born. She's only 8 months older than I am, and we were pretty much destined to be best friends. I am honored to be in her wedding, and it was so awesome being there as she said yes to the dress!

Me and the bride-to-be
I wrapped up the day with a trip to Michael's and decorating our apartment for Christmas. I didn't get everything done, but it was nice to get a start on things. There's a floating shelf above our TV to serve as a faux mantel, and I am super excited to decorate it for the holidays.

Overall, it was an amazing long weekend. While there was a lot going on, it was all so much fun and filled with happy times. This month is going to be crazy busy, but it's going to be such a blast celebrating the holiday season!

See you all back here tomorrow for a beauty PSA!
