Happy last few days of work before the holiday! At least I hope most of you get to enjoy some time off for the holidays. I am off today so that I can last minute prepare for my Math final this evening.
Nothing too exciting happened this weekend – except for the crazy ice storm that we got!Friday I worked a full day then I picked up my friend Nick & we headed to our friend’s ugly Christmas sweater party. I was super happy to see friends & there was a ton of amazing food, fun games & my favorite part: these two gifts…
How cute are they?! I ❤ them. PS: Nobody thought my sweater dress was ugly. Which is fine, because I totally agree. I love this dress & I’m so glad I found it at Ross a few months ago for $15!! Steal.
I knew the ice storm was coming over night & would continue into Saturday morning so I laid in bed longer than usual. Pro Bike + Run’s kick off event ended up getting cancelled 😦 But it was for the safety of everyone! They postponed until next weekend, but I am out of town with family for the holiday.
I had plans to do some last minute Christmas shopping, but I was worried I wasn’t even going to be able to leave! After talking to some of my friends who said the roads were just wet & slushy, I ventured out to the Strip District around 12:30p. It was so crowded which I should have expected. There was zero parking in the “cheap” price area (the one thing that sucks about living in the city: you can’t find free parking anywhere before 6pm Mon-Sat). I ended up getting into a lot for $10. Ugh – I hate feeling like I’m throwing away money like that!
But, it paid off. I love the Strip District because you have your street vendors selling really cool stuff for a good price & of course you’ve got all of your sports gear down there as well. I ended up scoring some great gifts for my family & I can’t wait until they open them.
Once I got home, I bundled up & worked on my study guide for my Math final. I luckily have a really great teacher in the sense that she has let us make a study guide for all of our exams. We can put whatever we want on the study guide & use it for the test – therefore I never have to memorize any of the formulas. This final is open note & open book – essentially we can use anything we want but I made my own study guide to try & condense things. I’m nervous, but I think I have an okay grasp on things. I have been told I’m better at Math than I think I am & I don’t give myself enough credit. Well, alright then, I’m ready to CRUSH this final.
Sunday was pretty relaxed. I worked on some more of my study guide & I watched the Steelers game. I had actually turned it off after the 1st half, but turned it back on just in time to see us pull ahead 24-20. Lordy, Bungles will always be the Bungles, huh? A team full of classless players. See ya next season, Bungles. Enjoy your time off.
Wednesday will be my last post (my Year in Review post!) until after the holidays! I am only working Tues + Weds this week then I am flying out to my Mom’s to DE on Thursday morning. I won’t return until Monday evening so I will be sure to get something out next week. I hope ya’ll have an amazing week. Meet me back here on Weds 😉
How was your weekend? Did you get a work-out in? What’s your go-to work out when the weather is crappy?
