TGIF!! And happy pre-Christmas Eve!!Two days till Christmas! Wooohoo!! Wanna know what got me just a tad bit more into the Christmas spirit? Two things...
#1 Standing in the long procrastination last-minute shopper line at Best Buy with Jam and Mia..
Jam and Mia
The rushed and panicked look of shoppers makes me chuckle! Jam and I took Mia WITH us to pick up her presents (except for Buzz Lightyear, which she's been asking for since we got Toy Story 3 on DVD in July). She knows about the concept of Santa but also knows that "Ma-Daddy"( her name for us when we are all together LOL) are in charge of the WHOLE Christmas operation!
#2 Trader Joe's Eggnog Almonds!!
OH-EM-GEEE!! Yess Joe! Yesss!!
Instant merriness, jolliness and good cheer! NO. JOKE. I love chomping on legumes (peanuts, almonds, cashews, trail mix etc) for healthy snacking purposes but add my favorite seasonal beverage and it takes it to a whole nother' level!! Kudos to Trader Joe's for being visionaries and Kat for being an impulse shopper!!
Tonight after work and choir practice, I will be wrapping gifts! My mommy (never graduated to Mom or Ma) sent a package with me and Mia's presents as well so that filled me with an extra dosage of good cheer!
I know the title says "Healthy Girl Fridays" but I am giving Kyla, who got a 3.77 GPA this semester by the way, another break! In the New Year you can expect consistent Q&A from our resident pre-Med/Exercise Science major! Here is some tumblr gold I found on her blog which if you have never visited, can check out here .
Kyla, her BF Bri-Guy and their penguin child wish you a Merry Christmas!
Are you in the holiday spirit yet? If you aren't what activities/experiences help with that?
P.S. The almonds I mentioned above are 230 calories for 1/4 cup. Enjoy at your own risk!
