Yesterday I got back to Minneapolis after a few days in Michigan for work. And in true fashion, my roommates were not excited to have me back in the picture.
Quick side note —> I think I’ve mentioned before how hard it’s been to find some hairball meds for Apollo since he has such long hair and is such a groomer (Jax, not so much, hence the shaving). I finally found these pills from Vet’s Best:
And they have been amazing in stopping his hairballs. Highly recommend! I just crush it and sprinkle on his wet food so he doesn’t even know he’s eating it. Sneaky sneaky.
Before I took off on my flight, Spotify gave me a heads up that my 2016 playlist was available… so good. There were SO many songs that instantly brought me back to the spot of some particular memories, I love how songs seem to do that. My playlist (no surprise) was pretty much country and hip hop. I completely forgot about some of the songs I listened to on non-stop repeat earlier this year, like this one from Blake Shelton:
It also reminded me of my two-month obsession with DMX earlier this year. I think I listened to his greatest hits non-stop for a good chunk of time. Did you know that he actually has like 15 kids?! CRAZY.
This made me laugh:
So did this:
Is anyone else with me in the whole not believing that Christmas is NEXT weekend?! How in the world did this happen? I feel like even though that’s the case, I have watched Elf a substantial amount this year (maybe even twice while I was out of town…).
I have a few gifts that I need to send out this weekend so I started working on a fun DIY last night that I found on Pinterest to decorate your own ornaments… with crayons!
Basically you take the paper off the crayons, break them into pieces and stuff them in a glass ornament… take a blow dryer to melt and move them around to create a design and color combo that you like. I made a few, but I think this one turned out to be my favorite:
Oh so back to how Christmas is next weekend? You know what else that means? Training for Boston 2017 begins!! I cannot believe that it’s that time of year again, but I’m super stoked to be back in training (isn’t it crazy how when you are training, you start to despise it but as soon as you have no training on the calendar… you don’t know what to do with yourself). More details on what training will look like in the next few weeks.
Do you do any DIY projects for Christmas? Tell me!
What were your top songs for 2016? What type of music genre do you prefer?
Who else is running Boston!? When do you start training?
