Christmas Festivities and FitMas Week #3 Giveaway

This weekend flew by so fast – I feel like it’s still Friday…or Saturday morning at least!  Sadly no, it’s Monday morning and Christmas is one day closer to being here. I feel like this time of year flies by SO fast and I don’t ever want Christmas to get here because that means it will be over just like that. Sad times. Ok now that I got super Debbie Downer on y’all, here’s a few snapshots of my weekend:

Christmas Production (2)

It all began at Bath & Body Works and their $8 candle sale! Did anyone else catch that one? I was super excited and purchased several for white elephant gifts!

Christmas Production (3)

Christmas present delivery (Madalynn for scale)!

Christmas Production (5)

My hometown recently reopened a Dairy Queen (we haven’t had one in at least 8 years) and the lines to get in have been INSANE. On Friday night, we noticed that the parking lot wasn’t overflowing so we attempted a visit. Y’all, people are cray. When I say it’s been INSANE, I mean that people have waited in line over an hour just to place an order. INSANE.

Christmas Production (6)

I had their Christmas peppermint blizzard. It was super delicious!!

Christmas Production (7)

On Saturday morning, I had a great 6 mile run with my BRF followed by a 2 mile run (mainly chasing squirrels) back home with Madalynn!

Christmas Production (10)

After the run, I helped my friend Mackenzie celebrate her birthday!

Christmas Production (12)

We had so much fun playing games, especially Quelf!

Christmas Production (13)

My poor brother in law had to wear this on his forehead the rest of the game (and yes, that’s Jesus in the background…lol).

Christmas Production (14)

After the party, we took our girls to Petco to meet Santa. Petco donated 100% of the proceeds from these photos to help with homeless pets which I thought was really awesome of them!

Christmas Production (15)

On top of everything else, our church Christmas production was this weekend. Thursday night, Friday night, Saturday night, Sunday morning, and Sunday night were all filled with rehearsals and productions.

Christmas Production (18)

This is how we all felt by the end of Sunday night. Hah! We might have stayed up WAY too late on Saturday night watching my wedding video…

Christmas Production

The production went over super well. I love the look of the opening “market” scene!

Christmas Production (19)

Friends! :)

Christmas Production (20)

During the opening scene, I walked around selling fruit and this “Roman Guard” stole a piece from me! Shame shame…

Christmas Production (22)

My BFF and her family came out to show their support, too! It was awesome having them there! Her son had a shot at stealing a piece of fruit, too… haha!

Despite the business of it all, I really enjoyed my weekend and spending time with my friends. Now, I need a nap! Goodnight! Smile

  1. Looks like a fun weekend! I haven't had dairy queen in forever!

  2. What a fun weekend you had! And YES I am definitely a runDisney fan and Princess Half is my favorite thus far!

  3. I'm a huge runDisney fan. I've only run marathon weekend so far, but it was fantastic. Was going to do Tower of Terror next year, but then it was pulled from the schedule.

    I actually host a Disney themed link up called Mickey Monday. You should drop the link in there if you'd like to share the post. It's got a runDisney prize so it fits the bill of "Anything Disney".

  4. I am definitely a runDisney fan.
    Currently my favorite is the January Half Marathon

  5. I love runDisney! And the Princess Half is my favorite. I've done it twice and I hope top do it again soon!

  6. runDisney will always have a special place in my heart! Since I ran my first half during Marathon Weekend earlier this year, I've been anxious to register for another race. Hoping to make it to Wine and Dine next year!

  7. I love runDisney! The Princess Half Marathon is my favorite :)

  8. I am all over today blog post!!! I had a blast this weekend with everyone!!! OMG never staying up that late again....I still feel exausted and its Tuesday :)

  9. Looks like you were very busy in a very good way. It's so funny to see people get so excited about a Dairy queen! They are pretty common around my area! PHM is probably my favorite disney race but I really enjoy the jingle jungle 5k and the Royal family 5K. You made that tumbler yourself? Dang, you are so creative! -M

  10. I just ran my first Wine & Dine, and I LOVED it!

  11. Love love love Osborne Family lights. I plan to go back next year as a birthday treat! Love your little tumbler that you made Karen! Very creative.

  12. I have never run a Disney race, but I love running while we are at Disney. My favorite thing to do, is get up before daybreak and run around Hourglass Lake between Pop Century and The Art of Animation. It's so calm and beautiful--a great way to start the day!

  13. I kept waiting for the BBW candle sale and got the limit :-) Cup is way too cute!!!

  14. I love disney, but I've never ran a race there.. someday!

  15. I have signed up for 3 next yr- 5k,10k princess and expedition everest!

  16. I love RunDisney. Tink was my favorite, but FL is closer, so Princess is a close 2nd. Can't wait until February!

  17. My favorite has to be TINKER BELL... at Disneyland (since it is the only one I have been fortunate to do)!
