Christmas Favorites

Look who joined me for a little Christmas trot.......

It's THE Billy.  The temps were perfect and of course I wanted to impress a certain someone by running speedy.

Hilly 3 mile run in 20:52.....I am loving my new little pace keeper:)

We came home and opened our stockings (I never want to grow up) and dug into these cinnamon rolls that the sister-in-law and I made yesterday.  (Recipe to come tomorrow).

(Prepare them the day before and cook them for 3/4ths the time recommended.  Freeze overnight and stick them in the oven that morning for the remaining time and they taste fresh without having to get up at 5:30 a.m. to bake)

Some of the favorite gifts:

My bro-in-law literally wrapped up a banana, orange, broccoli and a visa gift card to buy produce with.  He knows me way too well.

It looks like I am crying, because I am.....I was laughing so hard.

This is a date night gift basket from my in-laws, the other married siblings got one too.  Not awkward at all.  Yes, that is massage oil and a candle.

Billy gave me this book.....already, so so good.  Dean Karnazes is my hero.

In case you are wondering I wore these pj's for at least 36 hours straight.....only changing once into running clothes and then right back into them.

Spent the afternoon playing, 'Minute to Win It," and manicures at our friends house.

That would be Billy shaking his booty trying to get the candy canes out of the tissue box.

Glitter nails.  At least I am not the only twenty something year old girl trying to be a tween.  To defend myself I did stop watching Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen movies almost a year ago.

Ended the perfect day by watching 'Despicable Me' and 'Inception' while eating some more cinnamon rolls dipped into hot cocoa with a side of popcorn on top of M&M's.

Tell me your highlights from Christmas.

What was the best goodie you ate on Christmas?

-Mine was definitely the homemade cinnamon rolls.  I could dip 95% of my daily food intake into that frosting and be happy.

Yesterday I was up at 7am because the nephew was up and wanted to open presents! After presents I went on the run with Brian and then came back and ate the rest of the day. More family came over and we ate more. Today I got up and ran early and have been trying not to eat as much! Its been fun. Definitely a very relaxing holiday!

Looks like you had an awesome Christmas!!

So jealous you are wearing shorts on a run *and* your husband is running with you!!

The broccoli that was wrapped up is too funny!!

The book 50/50 is awesome. Dean is a very inspiring man!

Those cinnamon rolls look amazing- I love the tip of part baking them too- will have to remember that.
I made some spiced nuts and they were goooooood- they taste of being warm inside while it is cold outside :)

It's so funny to see how many people watched Despicable Me yesterday, because my family and I watched it too! Along with the new Wall Street. Awesome.

What a wonderful Christmas! I love getting books. So funny they wrapped up broccoli for you! How perfect! I had a blast spending time with family...

I actually sneaked a bike into the house and under the tree and surprised my hubby. That was pretty darn difficult since our old house has ZERO storage, no attic, no basement, no garage! I left it in my car and parked around the corner for days!

Mmm, those cinnamon rolls look to-die-for! Can't wait for the recipe. I think my favorite was a trifle I made. It's one of those wear you could just keep shoveling it in and eat the whole thing before you know it. ;)

I made cookie cake and we dipped it in hot cocoa! yum! the cinnamon rolls look delicious! merry christmas!

I made buckeyes (aka bonbons... peanut butter and chocolate and a little bit of heaven) on Christmas Eve, and cheesecake yesterday. TOTALLY about to eat some...today still counts as a holiday, right?

The cinnamon buns look AMAZING. So jealous. Dunking them in cocoa is proooobably the best idea I've ever heard.

Those cinnamon rolls look ridiculously good. WOW. I love that Billy is running with you now. You two can be that cute couple that wins marathons together.
Your Christmas looked SO fun! Minute to win it? Amazing. I can't wait to hear all about it :) Miss you girl.

You're truly one of the cutest bloggers. I just found your blog last week and I'm already hooked. Love all the pics!!

Beyond jealous to see you wearing shorts for a run on xmas - my run included cold weather gear, tights, gloves and a face mask... seriously why cant they make cute girl winter gear??? The face mask is a must to not have your breath taken away by the freezing cold wind hitting you... I look like some crazy stalker or something!

Honestly, it looks like a fantasticc Christmas. I definitely love that your in laws gave you massage oil... and the book under the sheets. Is dinner before or after? Bahaha!

The best thing I atae yesterday? Cinnamon rolls, definitely. I didn't get to eat any last year after figuring out I was gluten intolerant, and this year I went out and made my own! Absolutely to die for!

Y'all are so cute! Billy is speedy like you- impressive! I love the look of concentration on your face with the ping pong game. I ate so many yummy things yesterday. Billy's mom makes an angel food chocolate peppermint fluff cake that is amazing - melts in your mouth. Now I'm craving popcorn and M&Ms. Mmm.

Still so happy about Billy running with you!

Okay those cinnamon rolls look to DIE for! Can't wait for the recipe.

Also, I am cracking up at the picture of you opening the broccoli! I also love the produce gift card! One of my favorite presents was a gift card to the grocery store! It seriously is a GIFT to be able to feed myself well!

So glad you had a great Christmas!

So jealous that it's warm enough for you to run in shorts! Sounds like a great day!

We got the Dean book too! Looking forward to reading it. And I totally laughed at the gift basket from your IL's! LOVE IT!

that day sounds AMAZING! :)

 
At December 28, 2010 at 6:35 PM , Blogger Heather said...

Your family looks so fun!! I love playing games like that. My highlight was definitely watching my son since this is the first year he (kind of) got it. He would jump from my lap to my husband's each time we got a present. Then he'd go "ooh!" as if he was so excited for a shirt I got. :) He'd say "choo choo" for each of his, sure that everyone heard him tell Santa he wanted trains this year! :) It was awesome.
