Dear SEC Championship Game, please come out my way. Roll Tide Roll! All of Bama Nation would love another National Championship Birth. And with that, Dear Crimson Tide, please all play your very best against Georgia on Saturday. I'm pretty sure they're going to put up quite the fight. It'll be the best man left standing, and if that's not us, we don't even get to go to a BCS game. Let's not have that happen? Dear Oakley Overtime Sunglasses that I posted about yesterday, I think Tim will kill me if I ask for you for Christmas. There is a pair of non-running sunglasses that have needed to be fixed now for a long time sitting by the door. He just doesn't get that you're meant to run in, though. Dear JCrew Factory, you definitely had the best Cyber Monday and Black Friday sales, but your website was so crowded and hard to navigate that it turned me off. Sorry you lost a sale, but I'm guessing you wouldn't have noticed with all the other people that purchased. I really wish you'd restock the tassel keychain, though. I want that.
Dear TurboFire Fire 30 DVD, I enjoyed you a lot. Shalene is a lot less annoying than Jillian (although I still love Jillian's DVDs), but those moves are going to take me a few sessions to learn. They are fast paced! I will be incorporating you into my workout routine more regularly after January 13th, but for now I'll definitely come back to you every now and then (I'm planning a post tomorrow with more of a full review on my initial thoughts. I had more than this). Dear marathon training, we're getting along so well, and I really don't hate you. Though the long runs are mentally draining, I'm feeling so strong and so confident in my abilities. You definitely are stealing my speed though. 13 miles this weekend, which is such a nice and welcomed step back. Dear Tim, I'm hoping that work doesn't make you come in this weekend. I want to get our first Christmas tree on Saturday or Sunday! We need to pick it out together. Dear winter break, I can see you like the light at the end of the tunnel. You're coming up soon! I'll be ready for you when you get here, but I won't rush you. Dear HBBC and Elf4Health Challenges, thanks for keeping me motivated and on my toes at this time of year. You're so refreshing, inspirational, and good for me! Could I please win one prize before you're both over in 6 weeks? Dear Readers, thanks for coming by here daily, occasionally, or for the first time. I love hearing from you and knowing a little about you.
A few questions:
1. I want a "first Christmas" ornament. Any suggestions on a good place to find one? I haven't found it on etsy...
2. Our Christmas cards are coming Saturday. When is the official "start to Christmas cards" date?
3. Are you going to any cookie swaps? Leave a link to your cookie below. I've got two more to make something for after the one this weekend, and I'd love your tips.
Don't forget to come linkup your end of the year goals or Christmas goals on Monday for the
