ONE :: I'm not sure I have 10 things today, but we'll see what happens. Making that my number one statement is cheating. Oh well ...
TWO :: It seems like everyone is talking about marathons lately. Running them, wanting to run them, it's the new thing and I want to be apart of it! Wait .... what?! Me, run a marathon?! Maybe I should think about this. I mean, I'm hardly a jogger, let alone a runner.
Honestly, I want to push my limits. I posted it on every social media I have, to make me accountable. I can't back out now. The next thing to do would be to pick the marathon. When? Where? Who knows right now. I still have a half marathon in April and maybe if I time it right, I can run that in the middle of my training for my marathon. We'll see how this all plays out.
THREE :: Christmas is creeping closer and I could not be more excited about it this year! I know I keep saying this, but it's been four years since I have had Christmas with my whole family. When I was younger, my family and I would go to Chicago and look at the windows at Macys. Cam's first Christmas we took him, even though he was too young to remember. This year though, both of the boys are old enough and I can't wait to relive my childhood tradition with them!
FOUR :: Last weekend, I did almost everything possible with my boys, that had to do with Christmas. Light Up Our City, snow cone Christmas trees, going to see Santa, I jammed everything into one fun filled weekend! I love seeing their faces get so excited about it all.
SIX :: I haven't done Christmas cards this year and I'm not sure I'm going to. Normally we go and get professional pictures done and I had an idea for the cards this year, but we never got a chance to get it done. I've ran out of time and though I have Christmas cards, they are just the boring ones with a Christmas scene on the front. So, if I normally send you one and you didn't get one, you now know why.
SEVEN :: I think as of the new year, I'm going to look into ripping out all the carpet in our house. I love hard wood floors and with the boys and a dog, it's just easier to keep clean. I am ready for a home project and that just might be it.
Not my house, but love the floors
EIGHT :: Next week my boys are having their first Christmas program and I cannot wait! I'm anxious to see how well Aiden is going to do. I'm hoping he doesn't just take off running somewhere. I'll be the proud momma in the front row snapping pictures like paparazzi.
NINE :: I'm making Christmas dinner for family this weekend and I'm not 100% sure what I'm going to cook. I should probably figure that out and go shopping. I'll have to hit up Pinterest for some festive ideas. I want to make a cute dessert.
TEN :: I honestly cannot believe this year is almost over! It seems like I was just making New Years resolutions for this year. Now, I'm already making them for next year. When I look back at what I wanted at the beginning of the year, so many things have changed. What I thought I wanted, wasn't really what was best for our family. It's funny how things just work out sometimes. I'm blessed and very grateful for everything that my family and I have. Tis the season for love, family, and giving!
