Hey all – hope you had a fabulous Thanksgiving. We had a great low key day at home. We are headed to the cities today for Thanksgiving with my family. And then, I am super excited because on Saturday we are headed to Florida for a family vacation!! Cross your fingers for me for the 3 hour flight with a 19 month old goes well. .. any suggestions/tips/iPad apps you have would be welcomed!! And be ready for a weekend update full of beach and ocean pics.
Here are a few of my favorites from the week. . .
Pile on the Miles challenge. It has really encouraged me to step up my running mileage this month. It has been a challenge to get to my 100 running miles goal (12 more miles left before Sunday!). Spin training took up quite a few of my weeknights and so I didn’t get those miles in that I normally would have. . .but I put in 10 miles yesterday and plan to get in those last 12 with a run today and tomorrow (tomorrow’s run will be on the beach!!).
Jamberry nails. It’s official. I love them so much, that I decided to become a consultant! My personal page is here, if you are ever interested! Also, they are having some pretty sweet Black Friday exclusives. . .
Klara and her husband and their super cute pup just stated this super cool company. Basically, it is the unique opportunity to create your very own healthy breakfast cereal mix using premium ingredients. You can choose a muesli or granola base and then add your choice of cereals, dried fruits, nuts and seeds, and extras. They were nice enough to let me create my own mix and check it out.
I loved the addition of dried fruit and macadamia nuts to my mix. And it is perfect mixed with some vanilla yogurt. The freeze dried fruit can be a little tart, but it is really good mixed with the yogurt!
Popsations –> specifically the white chocolate drizzled over classic caramel corn. They specialize in handcrafted gourmet popcorn made in small batches with the finest ingredients.
And Robin – the founder of Popsations – is just one of the nicest people you could run into. She was nice enough to send me this tin of their popcorn to check out and taste test. And now, we are hooked. Sorry to ruin the surprise family, but you are all getting Popsations for Christmas. It is the perfect holiday gift. Also, they do special orders for weddings or corporate events. How cute would their little bags be for a wedding favor??
It didn’t last long in our house. . .
