Hello and good morning!
I’m happy to say that I’m off of work today so I plan on ninja kicking my to-do list! I have an early morning eye appointment and, then, I think I’m going to tackle my living room walls. I started painting them this weekend and need to finish them. I am putting two colors together and have half of two walls painted just so I could make sure that the colors worked together. Yes, I’m painting days before Christmas and, yes, my living room looking like a hot mess right now but, after today, it will be finished and looking awesome (I hope)!!
Then, maybe we can get a Christmas tree!?
Some other thoughts that are on my mind this morning…
**I’m so happy that I worked out last night.
As you know if my post from yesterday, things have been tough and I have been lacking in motivation to work on meal prep and get in killer workouts. However, day by day, I am feeling better and, last night, did my first at-home workout since everything happened. I was tired and was making every excuse not to…but I did it and I felt awesome! I think my mojo is back! Thank goodness!
**I’m also happy to have restocked our kitchen.
I went grocery shopping after work, last night, which was a good thing because our house was in desperate need of it! I restocked our fridge and cabinets and prepped some food for us for the week. I’m happy to be getting back into my routine! I’m, also, happy that I was able to make a gigantic salad for dinner!
**I love my new holiday dress.
I wanted to pick up a new dress for my work Christmas party, which was last Friday. I popped into TJ Maxx last week and, to my surprise, happened upon a super cute one! Now, I just need another party on my agenda so I can wear it again!
**I need everything peppermint mocha right now.
Normally, I am not a big peppermint fan. I really don’t have anything against it but it’s just not my favorite. However, when it comes to peppermint mocha lattes and coffee? I just can’t help myself. I have been making sure to enjoy them before they’re gone for the season!
**Coloring really is therapeutic.
My mom got me a coloring book for my birthday. The theme of the book is ‘calming patterns.’ I laughed and asked if she was trying to tell me something…like, maybe I needed to relax? I can say that I am so thankful for that gift because I have, recently, spent many nights with my book and colored pencils just thinking and being grateful for the good that I have in my life.
Alright, guys! I’m off to hop in the shower so I can go and get my eyeballs checked. I can’t believe it’s been a year since my cataract surgeries! Fingers crossed that everything is still looking good! And, hopefully, tomorrow, I’ll be able to share pictures of my finished living room!
