This weekend, we went a little crazy with the cookie baking!!!! I arrived to Philly late Friday night, and a bunch of us got together and baked, baked, baked while we watched some Christmas movies. The result was three delicious recipes, which helped us all get in the holiday spirit:
chocolate cookies with raspberry preserves + marshmallow
On Saturday, I went with Joe and his brother to cut down a Christmas tree at a nearby tree farm.
We ended up picking a 10 footer, which we will have to get a move on decorating soon!!
An Anthropologie sale sucked me in (50% off all sweaters) and I walked away with this one, which I absolutely love.
It’s like wrapping yourself in a big cozy blanket! I can’t wait to put it to use as the temperatures continue to drop.
After eating my weight in cookies, I got out for a COLD 5 miler this morning. It felt good to sweat after a little bit of a lazy week in workouts. Christmas shopping took precedence over many of my scheduled workouts last week!
I put on a pot of chili while watching football with the boys and now the whole house smells like roasted chipotle peppers…mmm!
I’ll be heading back to Maryland later tonight for another week of work…here’s hoping for no traffic!
