How has your week been so far?
Besides nearly crashing my car on the way into work yesterday morning due to freezing rain & black ice, you could say this week’s been pretty peachy.
It’s hard to believe there is only about 2 weeks left until Christmas! We haven’t put up our tree, no cookies have been baked, and only about half my shopping is complete. I have a feeling this weekend is going to be pretttyy much filled with holiday hooplah. Is it just me, or is hooplah a bomb-diggity word…such as bomb-diggity.
And that also means that it’s just about that time for the 12 Days of Giving!
Last year, I decided to pay it forward, and really get into the spirit of giving, by dedicating each day from December 12th to the 24th to giving to someone. You can read my recap of all my giving last year here.
Since I enjoyed it so much, I decided to do it again this year! I wanted to give you all a heads up just in case you wanted to join in for your own 12 Days of Giving since it starts this Friday!
Here’s the list of gift recipients I created for a guide:
Now a “gift” doesn’t have to be big or even a thing at all! Shoveling your neighbors driveway, sending a letter in the mail, or going for a massage all just some ways to give back this season. Every bit of giving counts!
Now that you’re full of holiday cheer, let’s get down with some chow for Miss Jenn’s WIAW!
Breakfast was one of Stuft Mama’s Grain Free Microwave English Muffins topped with avocado and melted coconut oil. It was a little dry for me, but nothing a little added buttah and healthy fats couldn’t handle!
Lunch was the usual, kale salad topped with cottage cheese, a little bit of olive oil, and apple cider vinegar. Recycled photos because a salad & veggies don’t really get anymore exciting to take a new picture for.
Followed up with a chopped cuke with Greek yogurt and a tablespoon of peanut butter. You would think I would eat cucumbers in the summer, ya know when they are in season. They do make for the perfect afternoon crunchy snack though.
Dinner was also the usual salmon patty, made with old bay seasoning, but was too tired to walk the 5 feet to snap a pic. I did munch on the last scraps of my Chocolate Peanut Butter Popcorn Balls/Bars. If I were to guess what crack is like…
And the obligatory advent chocolate & cup of tea before crashing into bed at 9. I think the worse thing than going to bed so early, is waking up after 9 hours of sleeping and still being tired. #whyisthismylife
Make it a great day!
What’s your favorite way to give back during the holidays?
Should I make chocolate chip or sugar cookies this weekend?
