The Santa Shuffle run that I did on Saturday went very well. I enjoyed it. I ran 5.11KM in 27:44 minutes. I am extremely pleased with my time and how I did on the run. I have to admit that I am SO not ready for the 30KM I am supposed to be running in March. I better buckle down and get training. Ugh. I don’t want to.
Even with all my hesitations, I baked 1 of the 5 recipes I was going to make. I made Toffee and it is delicious. But NOT healthy at all. I really need to get it out of my house asap so I don’t eat any more. Isn’t the point of holiday baking to give it away anyway?! Anyway, I posted the recipe for the Toffee, just in case anyone was interested in making it homemade.
I have added another TV Show to the endless list of shows that I watch. I just finished watching all previously aired episodes of Community. What a brilliant show!! I found myself laughing so hard! They poke fun at so many things, but they also do it in a very tasteful manner. It is hilarious. There is something in the show for everyone. It makes me want to go back to university and find a study group just like Community. I recommend this show for a cute laugh once a week. It airs on Thursdays on NBC and is currently in season 3!! Plus, Chevy Chase is in it and I haven’t seen him in anything for years. SO GOOD. Go watch it!!
I am about 65% done shopping for Christmas. I know what I will be purchasing for the rest, but I just haven’t gone out to get them yet. It’s nice to know that I am somewhat organized and I am not going to go out and mindlessly wander around looking for gifts. I have a purpose and it will be that much simpler. We are trying to keep our gift spending costs lower this year as we are going to Mexico in February and all of our pennies are currently going toward that trip! So hopefully I will finish shopping in the next week. Peter will be doing all the wrapping because the gifts look like something out of a catalogue when he does it! He’s just so perfect LOL. JK.
Speaking of Christmas, I have to say I am very disappointed in Mcdonalds this year. Last year they had a delicious Eggnog milkshake on special for December. As I am an eggnog fiend, I LOVED it so much. I totally expected them to have it again this year. I have been looking forward to it for months and months. I even called a couple times to inquire about it. Nobody gave me any definite answers on it. Then my co-worker said she asked at her local Mcdonalds and they said it would be arriving December 6!!! I was ecstatic I made sure I ate very healthy for the week prior to our trip to Mcdonalds. Just by chance, I called the morning of the 6th to make sure everything was going to plan. My dreams were shattered They did not have the eggnog milkshake, nor did they have any information on if/when they were getting it. I am so sad. As it is December 9th, I highly doubt they will be getting it just for a couple weeks. So Mcdonalds has disappointed me. I should take it as a sign to stop going to that horrid place. But I can’t, because I LOVE their food. Don’t ask me why, I just do. As I am typing, I am drinking an eggnog milkshake from Mcdonalds!!! They finally started selling them this year! Maybe I was a tad impatient, but now, my life is complete.
