Last Seconds

I had an absolutely lovely day.  My mom, my sister and I enjoyed every last second together!

I also got out for a nice run in my favorite area:

Unfortunately I’ve had better runs.  It was absolutely beautiful out and I had high hopes to get in at least 5 miles when I stepped outside but it certainly didn’t pan out that way.  I crapped out completely at 3 miles (and had to take a break halfway through!) and then called it a day.

I blame the random warm weather.  My breathing had just adjusted to the cold – my body is all confused!! ;)

The rest of the afternoon consisted of trips to Target and Gap where I failed miserably to find a white collared shirt.  (Why is a plain white collared shirt that actually fits so hard to come across??)

Then it was home to have another dinner of leftovers (they’re still going strong!)

(I could live off this bread.  It’s Greek sweet bread – called ‘tsoreki’ – and it calls my name every single night without fail.  Maybe I’ll can butter my Mom up to share the recipe with you all! :) )

I had a salad to round it all out:

And now we’re sitting here hanging out – I’m blogging while Mom is watching Twilight (I’ve never seen any of these movies and I’m beginning to see why…)

And and also?

A shot of the finished tree!

It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas! :D

Beautiful tree! Sadly, I’m not much of a leftover eater and we have tons of Thanksgiving leftovers that we brought home from my momma’s for my Dear to eat but he’s sick :/

What a beautiful day! Looks like perfect weather (not to mention gorgeous scenery) for a run.
And I would love the recipe for that bread! I’ve had Portuguese Sweet-Bread but never Greek Sweet-Bread. It looks so yummy.

The tree is spectacular and the run venue looks amazing… Maybe it was the Thanksgiving feast settling that caused the slow run takeup???

I just adore that picture of you all in your PJs with the tree in the background. Can I come live with your mom during the holidays? Maybe she’ll feed me that greek bread, too!?

Your running location is ideal!! I can relate to the change in weather affecting my breathing as well!
