a little bit of a life update

eating…Nothing in particular that I can think of. Way to kick of this post, right?!

drinking…Muscle Milk. Ha! They were handing them out after a 5K we did a couple of weeks ago and I’ve been buying them ever since. They are dairy free which I like and taste MUCH better than a homemade protein shake. So yea, Muscle Milk has been my post-workout breakfast as of late.

watching…This Is Us and it is so good. My older sister had been raving about it and I was able to find it On Demand this weekend, so any chance I get to watch TV, I’ve put that show on. It’s definitely one I would recommend.

going…Vegas next week for my birthday! I am so excited to get dressed up, go out and spend time with friends. There are 10 of us going so it should be a lot of fun. Oh and we are going to see The Beatles LOVE by Cirque Du Soleil…which I am probably the most excited for. Then four days after we get back it’s Home to Michigan for the holidays!

reading…Nothing. I was doing so good with reading, but since finishing that last book, I keep forgetting to get a new one. Adding that to my to-do list. Any recommendations?

loving…everything about this time of year. So cheesy, right? Oh well, the lights, the trees, the presents, the music. It makes me happy and oh so excited.

working…on being better about making to-do lists. As much as I wish I was, I’m not much of a list person, but I do find I am much more likely to get more finished if I have them written down, so I’m working on that.

listening…Christmas music, duh! I always wait until December 1st to listen to it, so since then it’s been nonstop.

buying…Christmas presents mostly. I did purchase this Puffer Coat though for myself that I seriously hoping I get the chance to wear. I love the burgundy color!

planning…A girls day on Saturday for my girlfriend and I. We thought a day of pampering would be necessary prior to Vegas, so we’ve planned a full day of facials, mani, pedis and mimosas. Perfect.

wondering…What to buy everyone for Christmas. My siblings (there are 5 of us) and I all buy for each other and we try to keep the price around $25, but man is it hard…especially the brothers. What in the world do I get my brothers?!

feeling…Excited and anxious. I am so ready for everything that is happening this month and I wish it would just happen already, but I know it’s going to just fly by and that makes me a bit sad. Oh well, just need to focus on the moment!

    Buying for brothers is definitely the hardest! If you are looking for a good book, Girl on the Train was amazing!

    Your birthday plans sound like so much fun!! I'm enjoying This Is Us too. I'm a few episodes behind but I plan on catching up this week.

    That is fun! I have not heard of that show. It sounds great though. Might have to add it to the list.
