Weekly Wrap 12.04.2016

Happy Monday! Who else is counting down to Christmas? To the end of the year?

Work outs
Monday- 3 miles fartlek
Thursday- 3.7 miles with Fleet Feet and Zumba at the Y
Sunday - 6 miles tempo

This week linking up with Holly and Tricia.



Last week, we finished decorating our Christmas Tree, and Roger finished all the other decorations. I'll tell you for about my decorations later this week.


Also, while we were decorating, my son found this empty box and wanted to make it a present, so he put a gift in there for me, and put it under the tree.

My son's gift to me *spoiler alert* it's my own nail polish. But I love that he is trying.
This always happens to me on Thursday, I didn't feel like going to run. AT. ALL. I wanted to go to Target and buy more presents. But I told myself that I had made promises to friends to be there. So I went. It was a good run!

Saturday was exclusively dedicated to Christmas shopping with my mom, my sisters and my niece. I spent a lot of time chasing after her at the mall, she is so full of energy! Her current favorite thing is escalators, we went up the same escalator at least 10 times.


Also, I saw this awesome mug!! I need this mug in my life.

I Do what I want

On Sunday after running, I took my son to Target to pick up a few things we needed for presents. He kept asking me to buy him toys, and I kept telling him that this is the season we think of others, before we think of ourselves. Later that night, I was telling Roger about a jacket I wanted to buy for myself, he asked me why I didn't get it and I answered him that presents needed purchased for the rest of the family first and my son jumped in and said "Yes, this is the time we think of other's needs, before our own".... turns out, he was listening to what I said! I love my boy!


How was your week?
How is the Christmas shopping going?
What other holidays are you getting ready to celebrate? In Mexico we have December 12, for Lady Guadalupe.

Did you see the awesome time Wendy, Karen, Holly, Judy, were having in Florida? I was jealous!!

  1. I LOVE that mug. Though, to be real, I love pretty much any mug I can get my hands on.

    Maybe I should listen to your Christmas lesson. So far for Christmas shopping I bought myself a new gym bag, 2 new pairs of running shoes, and a pair of wedding shoes. Oops.

    1. Jessie, in my family, if we buy something for ourselves during December, we tell the other siblings, and offer for them to "buy" it from us to give it back as a present. So, don't feel guilty! ask a family member if they want to give that item to you as a present for Christmas.

    1. I hope it does! I need him to remember that Christmas is about the season, not what toys he will get.

    1. Lines were crazy!! I was surprised of myself for waiting in line to pay for things, that is my least favorite part of shopping, the waiting in line to pay.

      Market of Curiosities? What is that?

  7. That is so cute your son wrapped your nail polish! I love coffee mugs and that one would definitely fit into my collection. LOL. Great job on going for a Thursday run anyway -- I'll be doing that today. No other holidays but I do have a birthday this month. Thanks for linking, Ana!
