I have been on a massive project to organize all of the pictures we’ve taken in 2017. They all get sorted into folders by month on our server, and then certain events get stored in those folders. As I was looking through my pictures from last week, I enjoyed looking at all of the fun things I did, so I thought I’d share them with you.
Day 1: My holiday week off started with a ladies crafting night with my friends. I think my crafts turned out pretty good!
I especially like the “excited” look of my mouse. What a cutie, right?
There was a pretty big crowd for our night of laughing and drinking. Always a good time! (thanks for hosting Dianna!)
Day 2: Hockey game! The Toledo Walleye won!
Day 3: Turkey Trot prediction run.
I took Sydney and a friend ice skating.
Her friend was clinging to the wall all around the skating rink for most of the time, but I did convince her to get out of her comfort zone a couple of times.
Day 4: Day trip to Frankenmuth, MI. Frankenmuth is a Christmas themed town with the world famous Bronner’s Christmas shop. You haven’t heard of it? It’s HUGE!
I found the coolest ornament there. I am not sure why we didn’t buy it… but if we go back again, I definitely will!!
Day 5: Decorated our house outside because it was 60+ degrees out.
I also helped out at packet pickup for the Run Toledo Turkey Chase race over at Dave’s Running Shop. Packet pickup is a sweet gig – I get to see a lot of people I know AND get a race shirt. Nice!
Day 6: ….. hmmm. I didn’t do much of anything. Yeah!!
Day 7: Turkey day!! Ran a 5K with my neighbors around our neighborhood…
Had a delicious breakfast with a bunch of our running friends at the park. We missed the running part of the morning, but we were there for the food
Had my parents over for Thanksgiving dinner. eat. all. the. food.
Zack was my assistant chef that day and helped me prep the turkey. I should have reviewed the list of ingredients for our turkey rub because it included two kinds of pepper. I HATE pepper! It made for a very flavorful turkey (Alan loved it!).
Day 8: Our library loans out “things”. We got a metal detector and were on a mission to get some treasures.
Check out this priceless sinker we found. Success!
Day 9: I helped set up the Black Friday sale tent over at Dave’s Running. Boxes and boxes of shoes!
Decorated our house for Christmas.
Ran the Holiday Hustle 5K. Got two more ornaments for the tree!
Alan and I went to a Holiday party after the race (thanks for hosting Tom!). Drink of the night = Christmas Ale. Yummmmm!!
Day 10: Finished decorating our house for Christmas, and went to see the Nutcracker. LOVE that ballet. Little known fact: I danced ballet in middle school and also as an adult (years ago!!).
Seats up in the balcony = a great view
Phew, what a busy 10 days. Lots of fun. Lots of pictures! 😉
Q: Christmas lights outside at your house? White or colors, or both?
We have both!
Q: Do you use pepper (table pepper)?
I DO NOT. I have no need for a pepper shaker. Only salt!
Q: Do you copy the pictures off your phone to a computer at your house?You should!!!!! I also started using Google Photos this year. LOVE it.
