As I’m sitting on the couch typing this I can’t help but think about how thankful I truly am for all of my blessings. I have a the best family in the world, a loving boyfriend (5 years next Wednesday!), and faithful friends. I have a large family that all live pretty close to me so it’s easy for all of us to get together. We didn’t have as many people here this time because they spent today with other family members. Christmas is when EVERYONE comes over to my parent’s house because we play the Chinese Christmas game or White Elephant; whichever you prefer. It’s the game where everyone brings a wrapped gift that can be for a boy or girl then we all draw a number and go in numerical order. You can either open or steal a present but after the third steal the present is frozen and can no longer be stolen. My family can be vicious, and I love it!
Anyways, I woke up around 6:50 this morning to start getting ready to meet my friends at 8 for the Turkey Trot. This is my third year to participate, and this year I ran with two coworkers. I really wanted to dress up a little bit to really get into the turkey trotting mood so we all decided on turkey socks! We got all of the equipment needed at Hobby Lobby and the socks at Walmart. We hot glued everything yesterday at work on our lunch break. A lot of people really liked our socks!!
Today was my first time to run since last Thursday because I’ve been having feet problems so naturally I was a little nervous going into the run but it was surprisingly easy! It felt so good to run again. Every time I run I’m reminded of how much I really do enjoy it. The three miles literally flew by and I finished in 29 minutes. I really wasn’t worried about my time because I just wanted to enjoy running with friends. Afterwards we got some free goodies before heading home!
I hope everyone is having a very relaxing and turkey-tummy filling day!
Here are two food pictures from today:
I’m literally in a food coma as we speak. The couch has never been more comfortable.
