Obviously last Thursday was Thanksgiving. I started the day off with the Turkey Trot in Minneapolis. It was so much fun!! I didn't run at a super fast pace. Actually I was supposed to run with my friends, but I lost them in the crowd of other runners! I just kept a pace that felt comfortable and enjoyed the run!
I then headed up to my parents' house for dinner (yum - turkey!!). It was a good day. I do have to say my favorite part of the meal was the peanut butter pie I made for dessert. It was heavenly!! I could eat that every day. I'm such a peanut butter addict!! I used this recipe except I used a graham cracker crust because I'm not a huge pretzel fan.
My birthday was on Saturday and it was a quiet day spent with my family. I kicked the day off with a five mile run. I chose running over birthday pancakes! My mom, grandma and I went to see Frozen that day. Great movie and I highly recommend it! My mom made one of my favorite meals for dinner, chicken enchiladas, and my grandpa came over for cake and ice cream. The awesome necklace in the photo above is what my lovely parents got me for my birthday present!
That was my weekend. Lots of running, eating (wish I still had some of that peanut butter pie!!) and spending quality time with my family. It's all I needed! Now onto the rest of the week! It's going to be cold and snowy, but I WILL get my runs in for the holiday streak. No skipping out for me!!
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Anyone else participating in the Holiday Streak?
Linking up for Marvelous in My Monday!!
Until next time~
