Hey friends! I hope you’ve had a great week! I’m just popping in today for some typical favorites from the week. Please share some of your favorites in the comments below!
Christmas Card + Decorations
Obsessed with our Christmas card. I ordered them from Shutterfly and I was happy with the way they turned out and shipped pretty quickly!
We finally have the new house spruced up with Christmas decorations. And Tater has helped quite a bit on the inside…kinda. We went with the fake tree this year in hopes of it being a little less messier with her, but we shall see.
I love my mornings, and Thursday turned out to be even more spectacular because James Taylor was on the Today Show. If you’ve been reading my blog long enough, you may know he is my favorite artist. I’ve seen him in concert close to 10 times, and his voice is still beautiful.
I’ve had some tofu laying around for a few weeks. Originally, I was going to make my sesame almond meal tofu, but decided to try this sweet and sour tofu recipe that I found on Pinterest and loved it.
Tons of veggie burgers.
And boxed pizza one night, because CONVENIENCE.
And, on a separate night, ladies pizza and wine night. So glad Sara came! We made a red potato, red onion, and bacon pizza with a chipotle drizzle, a balsamic caramelized pear one with gorgonzola cheese, and an italian style with chicken sausage. My friend Deb is a pizza mastermind!
Food Blogger Meetups
We had our Christmas meet up for the Charlotte Food Bloggers at Tupelo Honey. I’m pretty sure if you feed me brussel sprouts and put moscow mules in my hand, we can be besties.
It was sort of a spur of the moment decision, but I’ll be racing in the Huntersville Half Marathon tomorrow morning. I’ve sort of enjoyed a low key month of running since my marathon, meaning I’ll just run when I feel like it, so it will be good to get a feel of where I am now.
Carbs During Workouts May Help Immunity <– Fascinating. Basically, since having enough carbs can stabilize blood sugar, there is less “stress” on the body and immune system to try to normalize the altered state.
The real Paleo diet <– Interesting. The paleo extremists today are so anti grain, but research shows that they may have consumed grains and something more similar to the Mediterranean diet.
Self Care During the Holidays via Avocado a Day. I love everything Rachael puts out.
Lessons in Letting Go <– Cora writes so beautifully. It is an interesting thought – is it harder to let something go, or cause stress trying to hold on to it?

Real or fake tree? I much prefer real!
