144.8...Hustle & Bustle

The hustle & bustle of the holidays have begun. I’ve been spending the last few days putting the finishing touches on my Thanksgiving preparations. We are hosting 30 people and it takes a lot of prep work to pull that off. Although, I’ve done it for so many years, I think I’ve got the hang of it now.

Part of my prep work is cleaning out my refrigerator and freezer. Tuesday night’s dinner was Chicken Chili from the freezer.

I had an appointment, then picked up kids. My son had basketball and flag football practice. Dinner came out of the freezer again. Weeknight Bolognese and spaghetti with salad:

After I took the kids to school, I went to Sculpt class at the gym. I came back to the school to go to the Hanukkah Bazaar for a little holiday shopping.

The holiday shopping continued at Costco.

I refuse to go back before Thanksgiving. I barely got out of there.

After the ten hours (I joke) it took me to put everything away, I had lunch. Turkey sandwich, veggies and ranch:

Last night was Chicken Chili again. The recipe apparently made a lot.

This morning, I’m headed to Zumba and some more holiday errands. I wish I was relaxing this weekend but it will be more holiday hustle & bustle!

Have you started your holiday shopping yet?
