Body Pump, Swinging and Christmas decorations

This morning, I read the Sunday paper, had a blueberry Chobani with pomegranate arils and chia seeds on top.

I also had a berry smoothie before heading to the gym. My friend Angie met me there this morning because the free trial week for the Milwaukee area started today. I showed her around a bit and then we headed to Body Pump. It was a good class and I should really do it more often.

I was very hungry after Body Pump, so I ate right when I got home. A slice of leftover pizza, a whole wheat tortilla with shredded cheese and pinto beans and a Breyer’s chocolate ice cream sandwich. Told you I was hungry!

Then, Craig and I went on a walk around the neighborhood. It was a little warmer out today, but we still bundled up. Pardon my shiny face, all I put on was sunscreen and no makeup!

I swang!



I saw the Christmas decorations on our walk and wanted to get ours out. After all, they’re only up for about a month during the year, so why not get the house decorated right after Thanksgiving!

Hung the berry wreath on our door.

I got the mini Christmas tree and ornaments out. We have to have a mini tree because of our cats. In fact, last year was our first with this tree and the cats pulled it down to the floor one day. Nosy, naughty buggers! I hate to imagine what would happen with a big Christmas tree.



Our ornaments are from many time periods and places. Some are from our childhoods and most I collected on our honeymoon in Europe, so there is one from Prague, a lot from Germany and one from the Netherlands.


These are from my childhood–Strawberry Shortcake and the pink Care bear (which I had the stuffed animal version of).

This is from Berlin, Germany and I had to buy it since we were on our honeymoon and I love birds.

To stay in the Christmas spirit, I am watching Love Actually now. I love it when the character Colin says, “I am off in three weeks, to a fantastic place called Wisconsin! Wisconsin babes, here comes the Colin!”

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
