1 Jan


I hope you had a great evening last night!

I spent much of yesterday sweating – I did a 1 hr hot yoga session in the morning, and ran a 5k last night. I was pretty pleased with my performance during the 5k given the fact that I had a cramp from mile 0.5 on.  More on that later though, I’ll get a report together when I get the official times and all that.

Our NYE plans kind of fell through so after we ran the race we spent the evening randomly channel flipping, reading Catching Fire (Hunger Games book 2!) and relaxing. I also put together our greeting card book using the Christmas cards we got this year.I started making these last year when we got a lot of “Merry First Christmas Together” cards that I just didn’t want to throw out. I’m not very crafty but these are super simple.

  1. Cut the cards apart alone the seems, and glue the two sides together so they become one “page”.
  2. Let them dry (and I flatten them under heavy books as they dry because they tend to curl).
  3. Use a hole punch and punch 2 or 3 holes into each “page” and thread one piece of ribbon through each hole. Knot the ribbon and then tie a bow.

For photo cards, I usually just put them all in an envelop and punch holes in the flap of the envelope so that I can pull the photo cards out to look at them, since they’re more flimsy and don’t do as well as actual pages.

It’s really fun to look through cards you get the previous year. I’ll probably put them in a basket or something next Christmas as decoration.

The hubby and I have two days of vacation left until it’s back to work on Tuesday. We plan on doing a lot of relaxing and I’m hoping to get a few random projects done while vegging out in front of the tv. There will probably be some reading too – I’m on book #2 of the Hunger Games series and sucked in.

Dinner for tonight is in the crockpot which will make it super easy to veg out today.

Enjoy your Sunday and the first day of 2012!
