12.5 | high five for friday!



i bought myself a little christmas present this week.  i’ve always wanted an erin condren planner.  i know…planners are so 20th century.  but i don’t care!  i’m a planner person.  i’ve drooled over them for years, but they’re kind of expensive.  no, they are expensive.  however, i know i’ll use the heck out of it.  mine looks the one below except with a light aqua color instead of yellow.

i still haven’t put my little tree up yet.  i’m still trying to get in the christmas spirit in terms of decorating.  my goal is to get it done this weekend.



i finally got my ish together and got back on the health wagon.  it took me nearly a month, but i made it happen.  i’m frustrated with myself for letting myself be lazy and careless for so long.  but it feels great to take care of myself again, and i already feel better.  sore and tired, but better.



several of my christmas presents came in the mail this week.  i absolutely avoid the mall and stores during this time of the year.  and i can’t stand christmas music due to many years or working retail in high school and college.  but i LOVE buying gifts for the special people in my life.  it’s probably my favorite part of the holidays.



i got this new cookbook.  i’m excited to get cooking just by thumbing through it.  it has some great recipes in it that are super healthy and flavorful. (martha stewart and whole living magazine can do no wrong in my book!)  i’m looking forward to doing some grocery shopping this weekend and trying out some new things next week.

power foods from whole living magazine.

  1. Can’t stand Christmas music?! I guess retail can do that to ya.
    That cookbook looks fantastic. I was thinking about getting my cousin a cookbook for Christmas and wanted to find her a great one with mostly vegetarian. This looks perfect, I’ll definitely check it out.
