Oh yeahhhhh. What a nice weekend.
Our weekend was filled with fun, food, and lots and lots of Christmas shopping. We normally do our shopping online, but this year, we decided to do it all in stores. I’m not sure why we felt compelled to do this… I had our doubts when we couldn’t find a parking spot at the mall after circling for ten minutes. But it was actually kind of fun.
Henry spent most of the mall trip reading a book (over and over again) in his stroller, which was pretty darn cute.
Let’s see… what else?
On Thursday, I swam 750 meters with a friend. It took us an hour because we kept taking talking breaks.
We went on a long family walk on Friday – I think we covered 3 or 4 miles.
I ran a 5K on Saturday.
It was too damn cold to do anything outside on Sunday.
I baked some Oh She Glows 5 Ingredient No Bake Vegan Date Squares. I *really* wanted to make pumpkin pie, but these bars are super easy to make and really delicious, so they won out.
We did our normal grocery shopping errand, too. Here’s a pick of Henry pushing the mini cart around the store earlier in the week… It’s his new obsession.
I think he’s trying to say, “Let’s steal this thing and take it home! Quick, run for the door!”
And I spent this morning with a bunch of beautiful horses. But more on that later in the week!
I was digging through the archives for a recipe and I came across some oldies but goodies that I thought I’d share…

Susan: Running is for Crazy People
Have a great one!
Even though the malls are always crazy I still love shopping at them during the season! Brings back many memories of childhood and just makes me think of Christmas! I loved your past posts! I have read them before but reading them again was pretty cool!
