How in the world is it already December 23rd? Brooke and I have a full day/night of Christmas traditions to fit in today because somehow Christmas is pretty much here already.
Our Tuesday started off with some treadmill (of course;) miles. I don’t know how I am not bored these days on the treadmill but I guess whenever I start feeling bored I remind myself at least I am not out slipping/sliding/falling/freezing in the winter wonderland… and this way I get to enjoy seeing the snow fall through the window while I run. I am looking forward to some warmer weather outdoor runs in California and Arizona next week.
Snow days = extra cuddling back at home while we watch Frosty the Snowman and contemplate cleaning our house but somehow never get around to it.
Brooke got a mini chapstick the other day and she puts it on multiple times a day and keeps it in her little pocket (without losing it?!?)… I have no idea where this sort of obsession would come from?
Rewind to a few weeks ago—> the guy invited me to go with his family to an amazing restaurant for an annual dinner and so last night was the night for the dinner. My mom found my dress here (she picks out most of what I wear:) and my sister did my makeup/hair because I don’t even own eye shadow. It was fun to get all dressed up and head up to Salt Lake City.
At one point we had to catch Trax that was a block away and so I took my heels off (that was cold) to run to catch it in time… and then we realized it was the wrong train but I’m sure we entertained some cars along the way as we were sprinting down the road all dressed up.
Dinner was at one of my favorite buildings in SLC (The Joseph Smith Memorial Building).
We ate at The Roof which has the most beautiful views.
The Roof is a delicious buffet (we have eaten at 3 buffets in the last week?!?) and the french onion soup, rolls and steak were my favorites. There were a few dinner plates and then the most important part…
Dessert. I had to try at least one of everything because every choice was a good choice. The cheesecake won which is weird because chocolate usually always trumps cheesecake in my opinion.
We then walked around the Christmas lights for a bit.
And then drove back home. It turned into a blizzard in our area for a bit and so I was more than happy that I brought an extra pair of snow boots and they looked extra good with my dress:)
LOVE Briana in her DONUT STOP RUNNING TANK!!! Now I want a donut, or three.
Are you a cheesecake person? Are there any desserts that trump a chocolate dessert in your opinion?
Any traditions that you are doing in these last few days before Christmas?
What is your workout looking like today??
