Christmas Break Recap (I’m Good At Clever Titles)

Hi friends!

No, I didn’t fall off the face of the planet; I just spent some time enjoying the holidays and my family. Worth it.

I’m far too lazy to write a detailed recap of everything that happened during my little hiatus (and really, do you care?), so here are some pictures and minimal explanations.

Break started with a cookie-baking/90′ dance party with my friend Sarah.

Then, we headed to the Western slope to see my family. Mom and I got pedicures:

I wanted to buy this for my brother:

And I got in a few runs with a view of Grand Mesa.

We headed back over the mountains the day after Christmas, and an accident on the interstate caused a detour, which made our usual 6.5-hour drive into about 9 hours. But the scenery was pretty.

The next day, we headed to see my in-laws for a few days. Friday night, the whole family was together, and then my in-laws were babysitting our nephews for the rest of the weekend. So I got to enjoy a lot of this:

And, of course, I had to do a little bit of chilly running.

We came back home Monday just in time for eye doctor appointments (my eyes are worse again! Stop it, eyes), and we have spent the last couple of days relaxing and enjoying being home. And not doing much work, which I’m sure we’ll regret this weekend. Oh well.

Also, I found out today that I won the last week of Heather’s Better With Veggies MoveHappy Challenge! I’m super excited. One of the prizes is a 5k or 10k training plan, so I need to get a race on the calendar, stat! Any recommendations for a fun Colorado 10k?

That’s my break in a nutshell. I’m trying to catch up on all your posts, but I’ll admit, I’ve hit a few “mark all as read” buttons. So tell me any nifty news in your life that I might have missed!
