This weekend we got assigned new Elf Buddies for the second half of #Elf4Health! Mine is Laura and she sent me an nice email introducing herself on Sunday night. I have started to lose a little bit of momentum with it, so it’s nice to shake things up a bit!
Monday I woke up not feeling so great, so I chose to sleep instead of getting in Monday’s challenge of completing a circuit workout. Then today the challenge was to Pay It Forward. I saw SOOO many wonderful things being posted on the Facebook page. You people are amazing! I even teared up a little bit when reading some of them. I was also the lucky recipient of a very sweet gesture. You know who you are and thank you so much! It made my day!
My work is doing a Sub for Santa for two families and I signed up to get PJs and fuzzy socks for two girls in one of the families.
It was so fun to shop for them, but let’s be honest, I was walking around Target thinking “Are these cool? Will they want to wear them? What do 7 and 9 year olds like?? Maybe there’s a 9 year old around here that I can ask…..I’ll definitely include a gift receipt just in case” I’ve never helped with Sub for Santa before and I just love the thought that we’re helping to make the holidays a little bit brighter for someone else.
Speaking of, have all of you seen this video that’s gone viral? If not, you should watch it. Yes, this made me cry, too. You should know by now that it’s not hard to get the tears flowing for me.
So sweet and tender! Also pretty wicked awesome. I would have been a little upset if I had said something like socks and underwear! haha!
I’ve decided that between now and Christmas, I will share some of my favorite Holiday season musts. This posts is dedicated to Must Watch Holiday Movies:
You can mock me for this next one but it’s a tradition with one of my best friends from earliest college days.
