Weekend Update: 12/29/13

Hey! Happy Monday. Hope everyone had a great weekend recovering after Christmas. . .

I started my weekend off right with 8 miles while finishing up watching Christmas movies.


Scott and I enjoyed some quiet time with snacks (he LOVES Nuts.com keylime covered pretzels <—my Christmas present to him!),


while Luke and Abby enjoyed some extra loving at Grandma’s and Grandpa’s.


It was above 30 degrees on Saturday morning, so I decided to head outside for my 4 mile run (just in time, because as I type this it is currently –4 degrees!).


Drive up to the cities. . .


Lunch with Scott’s family to celebrate Ashley’s and Grandpa Lee’s birthdays.


A much needed car wash on the way home.


And I finished the day with my least desirable chore – ironing! At least I had cute help.


On Sunday, we braved the COLD temps to check out the house progress.


We lasted about 3 minutes in the –4 weather with serious wind chills.


We played with new Christmas toys.


I got the directions for Christmas Crack from my nurse, Mary. . .


And I made crockpot chicken.


While Luke and I cheered on the Packers against the Bears.


Awesome game with an awesome outcome. Go Pack Go!!

Overall a great weekend!! Smile

What were you up to? Recovered from Christmas yet?

  1. Oh man, don’t get me started on the game. Actually, I don’t really care about the Bears losing because it’s just a game but I can say that will definitely be my LAST NFL game ever. Holy NFL fans <– insanity!!! This girl tried to pick a fight with me at halftime as I was leaving the restroom because apparently I bumped into her… I seriously thought she was going to punch me in the face and bee-lined it outta there. Crazy, crazy people that are waaaayyyyyyyy too wrapped up into a game 😉 #endrant ANYWAYS, glad you had a good weekend and way to go getting in a run outside while it was warm. I should have done that on Saturday when it was almost 50 degrees here but missed out :/

  3. That Christmas crack sounds like exactly that..crack (not that I would know what that is like! haha). But in all seriousness, it sounds delicious and addicting!

  4. The house progress looks great! How exciting! We worked around the house a bit this weekend (Dana is working on finishing the basement!), we visited with both sets of parents, and relaxed a little bit. The weekend flew by as always.

      oh man, it was totally crazy how quickly the weather changed! Glad you were able to get a nice run in on Saturday too.

  6. The weather was so nice over the weekend – Jesse and I were laughing at how pathetic it is that 32 degrees feels like a serious heat wave! Oh to live in Minnesota… 🙂
