Hanging with Frosty

First it was the fake fire, now it’s Frosty.

We discovered the Snowman channel on cable tonight. We’ve been hanging with Frosty all night while we decorate for Christmas.

Yes, I’m wearing antlers. Yes, this photo is a weird color – I couldn’t fix it when I was editing. We had quite the debate about white v. colored Christmas lights. I prefer white, Brandon says color until we have a “boring adult Christmas tree in a bigger house.” What do you guys think? Do you prefer white or colored lights?

I guess I’ll take you through the day in reverse since I started with Frosty. Dinner tonight…

Seared tuna with an herb aioli, roasted broccoli and roasted sweet potatoes. French bread on the side.

Imagine my total surprise when I had 31 people in my BodyPump class tonight. Yay! I guess everyone hasn’t completely given up their gym routines in favor of holiday activities yet. I even had a few new participants – awesome! Make those changes now! 😉

Lunch today was an Amy’s veggie burger open faced on whole wheat with spinach, sprouts and sharp cheddar. I missed my mashed avocado terribly. Sadly, we are out.

This lunch kept me satisfied all afternoon! I didn’t even need a snack before BodyPump.

Breakfast this morning was overnight oats after ashtanga. Perfect morning. 🙂

To bed I go. HAPPY FRIDAY!!! What do you guys have planned for the weekend? We’re going to head to the mountains for a day of Christmas shopping. I’m very excited. I love the NC mountains!

(p.s. Mom – I know you’re reading before work. I’m sorry we haven’t been able to connect on the phone the last few days. LOVE YOU and can’t wait to see you for Christmas very soon!)

And just for fun and because she will kill me…here is my beautiful and amazing mother! 😀

This may go down as one of my most random posts ever!

    I have white lights right now, but I had colored lights growing up. They always remind me of my childhood. That and orange candles in the window.

    Happy Holidays!

    Too funny about the debate on the Christmas lights because my fiance and I had this same discussion last weekend about our lights! He wanted the colored and I wanted white. He also said that white lights are boring and for 60 year olds while I believe they are gorgeous and classy. Needless to say, he somehow won and we have colored as well 🙁 haha Have a great weekend!

    You were such a gorgeous bride, Jen! I couldn’t work out this week because I had minor surgery so I am really looking forward to getting back at it Monday morning with Body Pump!! Hope you and Brandon have a great weekend!

    I vote multi-colored Christmas lights all the way! The more the better. I love the spunk that it adds. SUCH a beautiful wedding picture, by the way!

    I’m jealous of your antlers! I WANT SOME! 😛
    What a beautiful wedding picture! Such a gorgeous bride! And I love your dress! 🙂
    I’m a traditional (boring) white lights girl! We usually end up with coloured anyway though!
