thanksgiving {in ny}

18 Dec

I know this post is way late. I thought I was going to be able to catch up on my posts faster but hopefully I can get some done this week.

For Thanksgiving, Dan and I traveled to NY to go to his parent’s house. We left Tuesday night when Dan got out of work. We got there late, around 10:30. I pretty much went right to bed.

On Wednesday, Dan and I relaxed for a bit and went for a quick run. His brother, sister-in-law, and niece Abby showed up in the early afternoon. We were very excited to see them because we don’t get to see them very often with how far we live from each other. Wednesday afternoon and evening were spent just relaxing and spending time together. We all read a lot of books with Abby, and she loves her Unkie Dan.

Thursday morning we got up early so Dan and his brother, Jon, could run in the Turkey Trot 5k. Amanda, Abby, and I went with them as support. It was cold and we got all bundled up to wait for them to cross the finish line. We spent lots of time walking back and forth on the wall.

Later in the day, we bundled up again to head to the playground down the street.

Thanksgiving dinner was delicious. A few family members came over and we had tons of delicious food that Dan’s mom made. I was sooo full by the end of the meal. It was a nice, relaxed, family dinner.

On Friday, we just relaxed as a family and spent time together. It was the last day we were all going to be there so we just wanted to spend time together. We like to soak in all the time we get with Abby because she is growing up so fast.

We left Saturday around 12 to drive home. It was a wonderful way to spend our Thanksgiving holiday and it was so nice to see family that we don’t get to see often.

30 day shred {…i’m not really sure how many days…}

20 Nov

So, my 30 Day Shred experience is completely messed up.

I have about 6 days left still. I got sick and didn’t work out for 2 days. I went to Orlando for the weekend for my chorus’ international competition so I didn’t work out. Yesterday I was so exhausted and today we’re leaving for NY for Thanksgiving. So I still have about 6 days left.

I was going to measure myself before I left for Orlando but never got around to it. So….I kind of messed myself up. I’m going to try and workout a little in NY but I won’t be doing the DVD. I’m planning on finishing the 30 Day Shred next week when life gets back to normal but I know it won’t be the same.

Oh well. It is what it is and, at this point, there isn’t really much I can do about it. So we will see how it goes next week.

Dan and I are leaving tonight for NY. We will be there until Saturday because we are spending Thanksgiving with Dan’s family this year. I plan on doing a lot of relaxing and reading and spending time with our 3 year old niece Abby and maybe a little school work that I really need to do also.

I still plan on posting a little but I hope everyone has a fabulous holiday and eats lots of delicious food!
