It’s that time of year where I realize that I HAVE to find a way to get some fresh air and sunlight in at some point throughout the day. I was going to walk on the treadmill but decided that what my brain really needed was time outside even if that meant it was going to freeze my face a bit. If I go a day or two without being outside I really notice how much it effects my mood. I came home a completely different person yesterday morning.
It was lightly snowing for the majority of the time and it was so peaceful outside.
Rewind to the first picture that I took of the day—> Remember in my baby post how I wrote about Beck now doing 3-4 hour stretches at night? Well, I spoke too soon and he was up every 90 minutes. This lack of sleep is causing me to forget very easy/common words when I am talking to people. I think Beck took out a part of my brain with him when he was born;)
My hair was evidence of the rough night:
Skye dressed herself yesterday as you can tell…
Megan D brought me dinner and dessert! She puts together this combo below (she sautés the peppers and onion with bbq chicken on the stove to go over the rice) and brought it for us to make for a quick, delicious and easy dinner.
We all loved it, you must try this combo.
She also brought the most perfect dessert. I’m REALLY into cookies right now and the Twisted Sugar peppermint cookies are officially the best peppermint cookies ever (sorry Sodalicious, you are now in second place). The other two were banana cream pie and they are also heavenly. I want to send you each a box of these cookies right now.
We had a special event with the girls last night. Brooke and I have had the tradition to go to the Nutcracker together every year and she was so bummed that we wouldn’t be able to go this year. We decided to surprise Brooke and Skye and have a special Nutcracker night at home.
Andrew made the tickets.
We had the girls dress up.
And we watched the Nutcracker (on Amazon Prime) on the couch. It was perfect and I am so glad we could continue the tradition this year in a new way.
Beck slept through the entire thing:)
How have you changed or adjusted any of your traditions this time of year to work with all that is going on in 2020?
Have a favorite frozen meal from TJs? SHARE WITH US PLEASE!
Favorite holiday treat—> Give me the details?
Do you find that fresh air/sunlight are important for your mental health or do you not notice much of a difference with or without it?
-I notice a HUGE difference and I think that is partly why I love running so much—> It gets me outside.
