The Preparation Begins

Happy Tuesday, everyone! Only one more day of work after today! Yay!!! I just wanted to share a few things that I ran across this morning...

1. Tuesday's Trainer Tips from Love Is the Sweetest Thing - portion control and exercise are a must for Thanksgiving. I am planning on exercising on Thanksgiving before all of the festivities began. Every year, my Jazzercise center has a "Huff N Puff Before You Stuff" class. And I plan to watch my portion control except for the cranberry sauce. It'll be easy since I don't really care for turkey.

2. DIY Ornament Wreath from Thrifty Decor Chick - I want to make this wreath. It looks simple enough. right? You can also click here for another tutorial. Thanks to Lindsay at The Rowland Family Blog for posting this.
Thankfully, I don't have to cook anything for Thanksgiving. So, all of my focus is set on finding Christmas presents. I love shopping online for gifts. It's simpler and "safer". But the question that gets me every year is, "What do you get for the people who have EVERYTHING? One present down and who knows how many to go...

I love that wreath too! I came across it yesterday. I plan on making it this weekend.

Exercise on Thanksgiving sounds like a great idea.

Happy Thanksgiving!

What a great idea your Jazzercise center has on the day of Thanksgiving! So, much fun! I'll be going for a run before I start eating!

Hysterical--> "Huff N Puff Before You Stuff"! That is actually a really good idea. I love that wreath and would really like to try making something like that.

As for the people who have everything, it is definitely difficult. Etsy is always a good idea for something unique and personalized.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Do you know that I struggle every single year to buy gifts for my family because I also think:"What do you get for the people who have EVERYTHING?" It's hard, but this year I want to be able to enjoy and relax when I'm doing my Christmas Shopping and I'm sure they will like what I get for them, they always do anyways!!! :-)Have a blessed Day!
