CHEERS to Friday! So very glad the weekend is drawing near. I am looking forward to running, teaching Danceaton class, and going to a gift exchange / pedicure party on Saturday with some girlfriends from the gym. I have yet to get a gift but I plan on venturing out at my lunch hour to find something.
So here are some things I’m digging on this fun festive Friday.
One of my favorite type of espresso coffee drinks, mostly because it is strong and low in calories, unlike a lot of the meal replacement drinks & lattes Starbucks usually carries around the holidays. It’s basically just a few shots of steamed espresso & H20. Just add a splash of half and half, your choice of sweetener, and you’re set! Perfect when paired w/ a reduced fat coffee cake and/or holiday treat
C.O. Bigelow Ultra Mentha Lip Shine, Bath and Body Works
I love the mint flavor…it also leaves a nice cooling sensation on your lips. Great for those dry, chapped lips in the wintertime.
Colorful christmas trees
Why have a typical green christmas tree when you can get fancy w/ colorful trees? They are fun and you don’t have to fuss w/ the live ones, you can just pull this baby out every year. Garden Ridge has them in all kinds of festive colors, I’ve seen silver, gold, black, & pink. I debated between a silver and a white but I ended up with a white tree because I figured you can get a little more creative with it. I found some red garland, colorful ornaments, and a snowflake tree topper for my tree this year.
Jason’s Deli Salad Bar
I’m obsessed w/ their roasted red pepper hummus, fresh veggies always on deck, cornbread/gingerbread mini muffins, and free soft serve ice cream w/ your meal! It’s all you really need! I usually go in there and just grab a salad to go, and can usually get in and out of there really quickly to get back to work. You can also add a cup of soup to your meal for 99 cents! I recommend the fire roasted tortilla soup, it is zesty and delicious! Hmm…I think I will get one today.
Candy stripe leg warmers
I can’t wait to rock these tomorrow at the Deck the Trails race! I found these at Party City, where they had tons of cute holiday accessories and costumes! I debated between this and a red & green Christmas tutu but the leg warmers won me over. I figure I can get some good use out of them and they would be cute w/ my running outfit in the morning. I think I was a little bit inspired by my leg warmer wearing friend Ali on the Run!
Oh…and speaking of running…it just hit me that I’m 8 weeks away from my next marathon, the Galveston Marathon! 26.2 in 2012 here I come!!
Are you running a marathon in the spring? Would you buy a colorful christmas tree or do you prefer the green ones?
