Tying up Loose Ends

Hi there! Hope everyone is enjoying a nice Saturday evening.

First thing this morning, I headed off to the gym for BodyPump. I knew I had a busy day full of errands ahead of me, so the gym had to happen right away. Luckily, my gym offers an 8:00AM class, so off I went!

After the gym, I came home, did a quick clean-up of the apartment, & made breakfast. I needed some good fuel to get me through the day!

Breakfast included 1 egg + 1 egg white, scrambled with some cheddar cheese. I served my eggs alongside a cranberry English muffin, topped with butter & jelly, & a big mug of coffee.

This breakfast did a great job of carrying me through a busy afternoon!

First, I had an appointment to get my nails done. I went with a light pink, since most people go for some shade of red for Christmas; I had to be different!

After my nail appointment, I had to stop at a variety of stores to tie up all of my loose ends relating to Christmas! Bed Bath and Beyond, Target, & the Hallmark store we’re all stops on my list.

Did anyone else go out today? Was it crazy? It was where I live!

I’d say the day was a success…

Shopping is complete; now I just have to wrap!

After a shopping mini-marathon, I decided to whip up a quick snack since it was past lunch time but too soon to start dinner.

In the mix:

  • 3 heaping tbsp. plain Chobani
  • Blackberries
  • Chopped pecans
  • Chocolate chips
  • Drizzle of honey

When dinner time did roll around, however, I was pretty pumped because Cheeseburger Skillet Pie was on the menu! This was only my second time making the dish, but it was just as delicious as I remember! This is definitely a dinner I recommend you try!

I ended up enjoying two, healthy servings – this stuff is just too good to resist!

Luckily, there’s some leftovers. (I just have to remember to beat Chris to them tomorrow!)

Do you still have holiday shopping left to complete?

    We went out today to the city that I go to the dr in…. HOLY WOW was it b-u-s-y!!! I could not believe how crazy it got after noon. We weren’t able to finish all of our shopping but the big parts are done and that is a success in my book. Mid next week (when break starts) it is game time!

      I guess I was foolish to think that the stores wouldn’t be absolutely crazy the weekend before Christmas! Glad to hear I wasn’t the only one fighting the crowds!
