Thanksgiving Recap

So you guys remember when I did couch to 5k and ran in my first 5k here ?  Well we celebrated Thanksgiving on Friday so that we could have dinner with my Aunt and Uncle.  As a result, we needed something to do on Thursday.  We decided a little exercise wasn't a bad idea given how much eating we would be doing on Friday.  SOO, I did another 5k!

My mom and I spent the rest of the day baking pies and prepping for Thanksgiving dinner the next day.
yummy yummy homemade pecan pie

We cooked the whole dinner and then ate a ton! It was amazing!

Saturday we decided to do a hike since we had eaten so much and since the weather was so nice.  It was long and uphill and hard.  I was impressed with us for making it to the top.  Afterwards I ate leftovers and took a 2 hour nap! Ha!

you see the deer?


We made it to the moon! Haha not really, but it sure felt that way!

My brother left Saturday evening.  I didn't leave until Monday (at 6am!!!) so Mama B and I had a girls day Sunday.  We got our nails done and saw Anna Karenina.  It was a fun day and an awesome trip!

Hope you guys had as great of a Thanksgiving as I did.

That pecan pie looks incredible.

Glad you had a great Thanksgiving...I think it's good to get out there and exercise during the holidays! I didn't do as much as you did, but I definitely took an extra walk every day :-)

It's such a great idea working in all that physical activity - that's what I'll need to do over Christmas * note to self!*
