Weekend Update: 12/7/14

Whelp. Monday again? And December is already flying by.. . It’s going to be Christmas and 2015 before we know it!

Anyway, staying in the moment for now and taking a look back at my weekend.

Caribou Coffee = Friday happiness.


Friday night perfection.


Saturday baking = Rolo Pretzel Sandwiches


New Holiday Jamberry Nails. Love the pink reindeer!!


Saturday night = Arli Dazzle. . . apparently the largest lighted parade in MN. Who knew?


Complete with Santa’s Reindeer. They are so soft!!



And man, it was COLD outside. Home to warm up with fresh baked cookies (+ cookie dough)


The best parade treat ever = Reese’s peanut butter cup tree!!


Puppy snuggles.


And more Holiday baking  = chex mix!!


And then it was off to the Holiday Lights run.

Staying warm in the car before the race. . .


Pre-race selfies.


It ended up being a 3 mile run. Lots of people but pretty cool to run through the park full of Christmas lights.


Luke was pretty excited to see Santa.


And finished the night off with these –-> Baked French toast muffins + my own cream cheese twist. Smile


Hope you had a great one too. What were you up to??

And because it was pretty marvelous, I am linking up with Katie (and Erin) for Marvelous in my Monday!

  4. always add cream cheese. always.

    What town was that lighted parade in? I would have thought Duluth would be a bigger lighted parade.

      It was in Arlington. . . I have no idea if it is actually the longest lighted parade in MN but it was pretty long!!

  6. I love the idea of running at night through Christmas lights. How fun! Our weekend (well friday night aka our only day together) was lovely. We attended Joshua’s holiday work party, went grocery shopping & just enjoyed each others company at night.

  10. I’m pretty sure my eyes just got SUPER wide when I saw those Rolo pretzel sandwiches. Hopefully none of my coworkers saw it. They might think I’m crazy 😉

  11. I spy Chex Mix!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 Hehehehe – my favorite! I actually saw a crock pot recipe for chex mix but I think it’d turn out soggy. Looks like you had a super relaxing weekend with just enough fun (and cookie dough) thrown into the mix!

  12. How come the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Trees and Eggs taste so much better than the regular cups? They get me every time. My weekend was great. I ran a half marathon on Saturday and we took the baby to get her picture taken with Santa on Sunday!
