Merry Christmas and A Happy Stomach Bug!

Merry Christmas!

I hope everyone is having a great holiday season so far! My youngest ended up getting the stomach bug. We spent Christmas Eve with plenty of ginger ale, Pedialyte, and back rubs for the most part. Good thing Santa didn't come down with it, the boys were thrilled with their presents.

The hubby got me a pair of new running sneakers - I was stoked. I know you're only supposed to run a few hundred miles in your shoes, but I just can't give up my Nike Pre's. I haven't found a shoe that compared to them weight wise, but for stability reasons and my distance that is going to be increasing soon, my husband bought me Brooks. I'm excited to hit the pavement with them.

It's Already December?

I know they say, time goes by faster than you think - but boy I feel it now! It's already December and soon enough Christmas and New Years will be knocking on my door. I always like to keep ideas on the back burner for Christmas gifts for my family. For my two boys, it's fairly simple and easy to shop for. They are huge sports fans just like their dad. Anything New York Giants will do (we love Victor Cruz in our house).

But for my husband - I feel like he has everything under the sun! It's always hard to try and find something he doesn't have that he could possibly want. I've been on a hunt for the perfect gift to put under the tree this year but have been coming up short. (Sorry honey, if you're reading this!) I love a great mutually beneficial gift that we can share and experience together. A few years ago, I got him a couples massage certificate for after the stressful holidays - it was great! I'm a true believer in those type of gifts. You get to bond together and you also get to reap the benefits too :)

I guess I will continue my hunt for the perfect gift - but I better get a move on!
