Hi guys! I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving! We started our day off at Crossfit for a "Community WOD". It was really fun! I partnered up with a little girl who is maybe 5 years old and she was awesome! We did a partner WOD of 50 box jumps, 50 push ups, 50 sit ups, and 50 squats. My little partner was so cute and we did 10 reps of each movement, except for the push-ups where I did more of the work :) It was a great way to start the day with a bunch of people who have become our friends at a place we truly love!

Then we got ready and went over to my parents' house for the rest of the day and night. It was only the four of us this year because both of my sisters and their families spent the day with their in-laws. My parents just make everything really really nice, so we had a great, relaxing Thanksgiving with them. Of course, there was butter shaped like a turkey...

We also watched some home videos {which I love doing} and Mike got to see my little face/personality and he said it's pretty much the same 25 years or so later haha. 

This morning, Ruby was super hungover from too much begging and didn't move for hours after we were all up. Ridiculous!

We headed to the Box and I was not too excited about today's workout!

I haven't been feeling good all week for some reason, but I'm not really sick- it's weird. Anyways, this 5k row really beat me up! I took 2 mini-breaks to have a sip of my drink and un-cramp my butt muscles at the halfway point, and then with 1,000 meters left to row. Goal for next time: no breaks!

I came home and drank medicine out of my china because that's what you do when you lose the measuring cup that goes with the medicine ;)

Mike and I went to the juice bar and got our juice plus I had the "Immune Booster" shot. I hope it helps!!

Then, we went to West a Hartford and had lunch and shopped {love that Mike is now a lululemon guy- it really makes my life easier!!} After all that, we both just wanted to come home and lay around.

I was a little productive and made this sign a friend ordered from me:ย

I'm actually really proud of myself for finishing it before the "real" weekend starts, because now I have a little more time for fun {or laying around!}

Have a great night!
