Besides the fact we don’t have a tree and it’s been 60 degrees outside, i’ve been getting into the Christmas spirit. After my final day of classes on Saturday, Cameron and I finished our Christmas shopping and decided to hit up Buffalo Wild Wings to watch the hockey game. It was a fun time and cool to see the town center all dazzled up with lights.
Like I said, it was warm out. Really warm. BeDubs had it’s doors open to cool down the restaurant, and when we drove home the car thermometer was like, “what’s up DC? It’s freakin’ warm out!”
We ended our night wrapping presents and drinking a couple of New Belgium’s Accumulation Winter Seasonal beer. Even though we’ve had no snow accumulation since last week, it was full of cheer and a wintery flavor. Can beer have a wintery flavor? I dunno, but I guess if the picture has snow and your glass says “happy holidays” why not?! And check out the world’s cutest bottle opener. I bought it for Cameron years ago from a little shop on Michigan Ave in Chicago.
Sunday I ran outside in a tank top and shorts, and it was awesome..kinda. But that’s another blog and I hope to share with you the many thoughts that run through my head during double digit runs tomorrow. And with keeping spirits bright and staying in the Christmasy mood, take a look at a pic of me and my sister from a billion years ago.. or what seems to be the late 80s early 90s according to the sweet design on our snowsuits. Also, I’m pretty sure my mom used to cut my bangs.
