Greetings from New Jersey!
Before I left yesterday morning, I got a quick sightseeing run in, inspired by seeing on Instagram yesterday morning that Kelly had done the same.
The stops: past the Solow building, where I worked for Chanel last summer; the Plaza; and the Rockefeller Center tree!
I wore that adorable jacket you see above. It’s a New Balance Windblocker jacket I got through work. (That link isn’t the exact one I got, but pretty close–AND ON SALE RIGHT NOW.) Its outer layer is wind and water-resistant, and it’s fleece-and-awesome lined. It was really chilly and windy yesterday and I wore this and the New Balance Minimus long-sleeved top and felt perfectly comfortable. I’ll post a picture of it soon, but I’m in serious love with that Minimus top. It’s fairly similar to the Lululemon Run Swiftly top, but at half the price and a more flattering fit for those of us who carry extra weight in their midsection. Win.
I’d been trying so hard to make my Christmas spirit happen (or fetch, whatever) but it was hard not to smile running past all of these sights.
I came home, packed and was picked up by my buddy Shannon and her husband to head out to NJ.
We did some errands during the day, and then my mom made a feast last night, starting with steak. I don’t remember the last time I ate steak, and I devoured every single bite.
And some salad to balance things out.
And potatoes au gratin to unbalance things out.
And stringbeans to balance things back out again.
Today, I started and finished all of my Christmas shopping.
NOW I can finally unwind. I may start with a nap.
When did you start/finish your holiday shopping? How do you unwind over the holidays?
