I can not believe that we made it to the holidays! I have a half day at work today and then I am off until January 3rd! 10 days off is crazy to me so I am ready for some time with family, blogging, reading, and getting ready for a new year. This week has been busy but I feel that way everything we hit the holidays so my list is very random this week.
one. Cyclebar. Saturday and Sunday I got my butt up to go for a ride and I do not regret it one bit. They were tough rides with a 75min endurance ride of Brittney vs. Beyonce on Saturday morning and then a ride followed by mimosas on Sunday. This holiday season has got me. In total I will have gone to 10 parties/meals/church services to celebrate the holidays so the scale is currently not my friend. I have also been guzzling green juice since I have not been getting in enough whole foods.
two. Christmas at the DPAC. Last night I attended Christmas at the DPAC. For the last few years my church has rented out the Durham Performing Arts Center in Downtown Durham for our Christmas services. It is such a great mix of concert and message to celebrate the Lord. This year I ended up in the 3rd row! It was so incredible and I will share the video when it is posted but until then you can watch previous years here.
My roommate and I even twinned at the service.
Southern Weddings and Paris 312's Instagram contest so this week a huge package arrived on my doorstep filled with the most beautiful paper goods. I am thinking of having a drinks and dessert gathering for my birthday in January so these will be put to good use soon.
Four. This week has been the week of babysitting so I have been living in my Charles River monogrammed pullover from It's Gee Gee Baby. I also have one from Carolina Dandy. Wednesday I got to enjoy an hour of my favorite movie, Pride and Prejudice.
five. Black Flats. I think it is finally time to get rid of one of my pairs of black flats (I always have two in rotation since I literally wear them all the time. So now we hunt for black flats. I am pretty picky in that I want a round toe, not a lot of embellishment and preferably leather or suede. If you have favorite black flats that are under $200 please share!
six. Max Cat. Of course I couldn't not include photos of my little guy. This week his favorite things were my laundry and helping to wrap up my presents.
