Well, we survived Christmas 2013. And despite my doubts, it ended up being a really good day. A very relaxed day. Even though the restaurant we went to was horrendous, I didn’t even freak out on the waitress like I
sometimes never do.
Christmas Eve we ordered our traditional Domino’s pizzas and watched 3 episodes of Breaking Bad, leaving the last one for Christmas. I semi-planned on waking up to run but then decided to set no alarm and rest. Like, actual rest. No worries of working out or reservations or anything. I slept for almost 12 hours, not hearing a peep until 11:45! Heaven. Johnny made coffee and I made some cinnamon buns while we relaxed and opened up our little gifts and stockings.
So that would be my stocking fillings from John! Haha so great, so ME! 2 avocados, swedish fish for my long run fuel, a cold pack for my leg, and rotting carrots as a joke obvi. And the pink fluff in the back is my new huge robe! I have been saying I wanted a robe for months and kept forgetting to look anywhere for one, but my sweet dude remembered and grabbed me such a fluffy one!
Ignore how awful I look, but don’t ignore my amazing new fur vest I bought myself for Christmas! I will be buried in this thing one day.
After hours of lounging around, we set out for dinner even though all we wanted to do was stay in our warm apartment. Which is exactly what we should have done. Whatever you do, don’t go to Duke’s on 39th and 3rd avenue. After searching on Opentable for a cheap place that was open, we thought the menu sounded good and came here. The service was the worst service I’ve ever had at a restaurant! And the food was really not good at all, to the point where John and I both felt sick after. Ugh, right? Next year we’ll either be splurging to go somewhere fancy or stay home and eat chinese in our PJ’s! Oh well, it felt good to get kinda dressed up.
Ended the night with these sea salt caramels from CVS that are so freaking delicious, and watched the last episode of Breaking Bad. Can’t say I loved the ending but it feels good to be caught up now!
Got my butt up for a 4 mile run through the beautiful park this morning. Definitely need to get back to being more consistent with my running. However, teaching spin so much lately has made my endurance even better and my heart rate is lower than usual while running!
How was your Christmas??
