Sunday Favorites #3


Zumba: Although I am incredibly sore and I feel like I now need another week to recover…I am so excited to report that I have received my Zumba certification, more to come on a future post because the whole experience was simply amazing.

Thanksgiving: I went to two homes, and I ate two whole dinners. I did it. It was SO good. I will probably do it again next year.  I look forward it!

I’ve got a lot of working out to do this week—pending I ever recover from this all day training!

Christmas: It’s here folks…I love it. Not for the shopping because my wallet can’t handle the shopping. (I will gladly make cupcakes for all for gifts this year because I am not looking forward to shopping!) I am really talking about the Christmas tree at Rockefeller, the lights up all over the neighborhood~the anticipation of a new year…Its just a great time of year and I am happy to enjoy it!

Boob Tube:

X-Factor: I know I talk about it every week but this performance actually made me cry. My 3yo has the biggest crush on her!

The Mindy Project: I love this show! a: She’s a curvy lady and she’s okay with that. b: She is imperfect and she is ok with THAT c: She is even funnier than she was on “The Office”.
