Week Highlights: Thanksgiving Edition

IMG_7701

Happy December! It’s 80 degrees here but the holiday season has officially arrived anyway. The Christmas decorations are coming out in full force, and I’m ready to start wrapping up those presents I bought months ago (because I’m an obsessive gift giver) and cuddling up with Christmas movies. It’s hard not to be extra thankful around Thanksgiving time, and as always I have a lot to be thankful for! It seems like once you’re out of college, going home for Thanksgiving has a totally different feel. I can’t describe it, but it’s just different somehow. It was so nice to catch up with friends and get to see my grandparents; and it was wonddderrrful to have such a long weekend. I’m so sore from Thanksgiving day football (first annual Turkey Bowl was awesome!) and Saturday’s early morning hot yoga, but it felt good to be active while back home! It was certainly an exhausting weekend, but I’m looking forward to a full and fun fresh month ahead!

The girls at our First Annual Turkey Bowl! I tried my best not to disappoint our team and ended up grabbing a flag AND successfully blocking. So much fun!IMG_7708

Da Best picked me up Saturday morning for early hot yoga and Urth. I felt dizzy and barfy after yoga but it was well worth the amazing 30 second massage from the instructor, who was somehow a perfect combo of spazzy and soothing. This time at Urth I got a caramel blended boba with almond milk and caramelized banana nut oatmeal with almond milk. Just. so. good.

Cheers to a new month! What are you looking forward to?
