Yesterday was a wonderful day that began with a 1.5 mile jog plus a should/ab burner. Just when I think there is no way that 10 pound dumbbells will challenge my shoulders, I do another LexiJ workout and she has me wishing I had grabbed the 5 pounders. (Just in case anyone is wondering, 15 pound dumbbells are on my Christmas list. Ha!)
The girls actually slept in a bit, which would have normally been fine except that Ina had her heart set on Cindy Lou Who hair for "Dress like your favorite Christmas movie character" day at school.
Ina was a champ and remained calm through the entire experience. Mira, however, picked yesterday to re-decide that none of the panties she owns fit her the way she would like. The extra crying had me on edge, but we still pulled through.
The workday flew by and before I knew it, Ina was off the bus and we had 15 minutes to change into dance clothes and wrap the girls' buddy gifts for their dance Christmas party. Dan went to dinner with the small group guys, so that left me and Mira free to do whatever we wanted.
We stopped by the grocery store where Mira decided she wanted every single thing and then came home to throw a quick dinner together (roasted sausage, potatoes, onions, peppers, and cabbage - not much to look at but so delicious!).
Brooke stopped to try a new cocktail recipe with me (<-so good!) and I picked up the girls from dance where they excitedly told me that Cora almost won a game of freeze dance and Ina's buddy gave her the mother load of gifts. Cora told me she loved her ornaments so much she wanted to sleep with them.
I am so looking forward to this weekend. I hope you all have a great one!
