Christmas trip & gifts recap

For Christmas this year, my husband and I flew out to Olympia, Washington, to visit my family for a week.  This was the first Christmas in a few years that I’ve been able to make it back, and we’ve decided we’ll try to spend Christmas there every other year.

It was a week of family time, catching up with friends, yummy food & drinks, awesome running weather, and giving and receiving gifts.

Giving:  I gave alot of gift cards this year out of convenience.  It’s much easier to pack a suitcase when you just have to toss in some gift cards rather than bulky presents!  I also got my husband a Blackhawks polo and Bears workout shirt.  And the movie Pitch Perfect.  He loves it!  Nothing too big or fancy this year…we tried to save some money since we’re buying a house later this spring.

Receiving:  I was spoiled this year!  I received a Garmin Forerunner 10 GPS running watch (so excited to try it out once the snow and cold are a little more tolerable!)


Underarmour cold weather running tights and a Marquette University sweatshirt (love the soft inside of new sweatshirts :))


The Rabbit wine opener and some fun wintery wine charms … a digital picture frame (both not pictured)

Gift Cards: H&M, Old Navy, Roadrunner Sports, iTunes, Fandango


One Direction’s new CD.  Guilty pleasure!


We’ll be celebrating Christmas with my husband’s family tomorrow!

What was your favorite gift?
