christmas peppermint cookies!

cookies

unfortunately i don’t have time to bake very often — this weekend though i found time to make these delicious sugar cookies with peppermint kisses on top! they were festive and a huge hit at the family christmas party this year.

the recipe is from Sallys Baking Addiction! such great instructions which include a chocolate version too — yumm!

what’s your favorite kind of christmas cookie?

VS fashion show love

VS fashion show

i LOVE love love the victoria’s secret fashion show EVERY year! especially this year.. this is the first year in a long time that i’m in okay shape and feeling good about my body — so watching how amazing these girls look wasn’t as big of a bummer. it also helps to run 3.4 miles right before and stick to salads for the night 😛 and a tone it up cinnamon mug cake, too, of course!

the fashion show always makes it feel a little bit more like christmas, so my friends and i had a great time watching it all snuggled up together. : )

what did you think? did you get a fun group together to enjoy, too?

downtown christmas run

fun run

a week ago unfortunately (i assume) i pulled an ab muscle running : (

i’ve been getting pretty bad belly cramps that start under my R ribcage and go down the front of my abs

however i signed up for this 5k christmas run months ago and still wanted to participate — albeit much slower than originally anticipated. we were able to finish in 33 minutes though — and it was a blast! santa was there to cheer you on around every lap; there were lots of christmas lights at the finish and along the race, too! definitely a must do every year.

are there any fun christmas events in your area? : )
