A Saturday Check-in

Hey everyone! Just a quick check in before I head out for some serious shopping for an upcoming local gift guide on Make, Do and Mend!

Speaking of Make, Do and Mend, I recently posted a bevy of beautiful Thanksgiving tablescapes to get you in the spirit for the big day on Thursday! (I have to admit, I'm a little jealous of the super-cute kids' table featured on the blog). Check them out and get inspired!

It's absolutely freezing (literally) in Milwaukee right now, with a high of only 24 degrees today! We flew right past fall, here. And, just in time for the temperature drop, I had a CrossFit ...(oh, yeah, I'm doing CrossFit now... I don't belong to a box, but do all the WODs with equipment in our basement and garage. I feel like I'm beating the system, here)... a CrossFit workout that kept me outside most of the time. Here's what I did:

3 rounds for time:
800m run
65 lb front squats, 10 reps
200m run
11 pull ups
400m run
24 kettlebell swings, 35 lbs

I finished in 34:39 and was absolutely BEAT. And my fingers were freezing.

But I have nothing to complain about, because Eric is spending the entire day outside on one of his most favorite days of the year: Christmas Light Set-Up Day!
Eric looks forward to this day all year long. He puts on his headphones, blasts the Christmas music, drinks hot coffee and sets up our winter wonderland all day long. This year, we're excited to deck the yard in even more Christmas lights than the last two years (thanks to those pesky trees being removed!). I'm so excited to share the whole shebang with you after Thanksgiving! Eric wasn't planning on it being so cold this year, but his heightened holiday spirit should help keep him toasty.

What are your plans for the weekend? Anyone else doing any Christmas decorating around the house?
