Friday night Amanda and I did some baking for the Clemson v. Carolina game. Using a simple sugar cookie recipe and some adorable cutters, we made football-themed cookies. We made footballs, helmets, “cheer thingies” (loudspeakers) and SC state shapes. I made a huge batch of frosting and then dyed them the appropriate team colors: garnet and black for USC and purple and orange for Clemson . While the cookies baked and cooled, we drank some red wine and listened to Christmas music on Pandora . Have you started listening to Holiday music? I know we’re not the only ones out there. Baking and decorating took 3 hours! Although some of the cookies look like they were made by drunk people, we had lots of fun getting cracked out on the sugary frosting and making a huge mess. The next morning we decided that exercising was essential. We walked the entire bridge + some, totaling a little over 5 miles. We were really proud of our cookies and they were a huge hit at the party. The Clemson cookies disappeared before the Carolina cookies. This either means they were delicious or people were trying to get rid of them. Clemson started playing like doo doo and my attention turned from the game to some decoys I found in Cord’s living room. Do you like how I’m not only making out with a duck but I have antlers in this picture? Sunday morning was spent lazily watching tv until Tyler came back from Clemson demanding that we go for a run. He’s a feisty one! We ran up and down the Battery – the same route we’ll be running in our Reindeer Run 5k this Saturday.
After our run Tyler claimed that because his “life revolves around meal times” that we needed to discuss dinner options. Is he my twin or what? We settled on takeout from Tasty Thai . Unfortunately it was not so tasty. I was determined to try something other than my typical Pad Thai which was what Tyler ordered. My choice: Bleh. Boring. No flavor. Thanks for the massive amount of noodles with 5 vegetables, Tasty Thai. You are so generous. Here’s to clean eating all week long with lots of exercise. Thanksgiving detox is a must!!
