Christmas Recap

Hey everyone!! I hope ya’ll had a great Christmas! I had the best Christmas EVER! I really enjoyed spending time with my family and celebrating Jesus’ birth! It has been an awesome 2 days, I’m going to start with Christmas Eve!

I got up early Christmas Eve morning and did a 5 mile treadmill run because it was stormy outside. I watched The Santa Clause while I ran, so that was fun!! After my run, I headed over to my parent’s house so my mom and I could go to Muddy’s Bake Shop and pick out some Birthday cupcakes!! We got there right when they opened and there was a huge line!! We picked out 8 cupcakes and headed on our way! We stopped and got the dogs some treats at 3 dog bakery and then came home and frosted some sugar cookies. We headed to church around 5pm. It was a very nice candlelight service! After church was my Birthday dinner. We headed to Mr. B’s to try it out. Unfortunately, when we got there, we realized we were the only people in the whole place and they basically only served fried food! I am definitely not a friend food fan, so we decided to head elsewhere for dinner. I totally thought Mr. B’s was a nice steakhouse! Guess I heard wrong!! We ended up at Bonefish, one of my favorites!! We shared Bang Bang Shrimp as an appetizer and I got the Ahi tuna for my entree! It was delish!!

After we ate, we headed home to watch The Santa Clause (yes, I realize I watched it once already that day) and then hit the sack!!

I always am the first one up Christmas morning, guess I’m just really excited for Christmas and Birthday festivities!! So, I decided to go on a run! It was dark when I started, and very windy. But the thing that made this run so awesome was that it was SNOWING!! Not a lot by any means, just kinda “mist snowing” but it was definitely snow!! I was smiling so big the whole run because it was just a perfect setting for a Christmas morning run. My Garmin’s batteries were dead so I think I ran about 3.5-4 miles. That run put me in such a happy mood all day! I loved it!! A little while later we started all the festivities! I am just going to show ya’ll pictures of the day so this post isn’t forever long!!

Cupcake sampler!! We cut up all the cupcakes in bite size pieces so we could try them all! I tried Red Velvet, Chocolate Peppermint, Eggnog, Hot Chocolate, and Lemon. My favorites were the Chocolate Peppermint and Lemon. This was so much better than regular cake!

It was a great Birthday and Christmas! I got lots of great stuff! I hope everyone had a wonderful day and I look forward to hearing about everyone’s Christmas’!!
