Happy Wednesday! Today will be a fun, new post- I'm joining the What's Up Wednesday linkup to talk about what's new in my life. This is a fun way to catch up and answer a few questions. I'd love if all of you also answered some questions below!
eating this week : lots of Thanksgiving food! I had to test out all the recipes that I shared in my GretchRuns Thanksgiving posts (read part 1, 2, 3, 4) and we'll be having even more treats this weekend!
reminiscing about : my trip to Budapest and Prague! I went two years ago on a Groupon Getaway, and it was an amazing trip. On the way back home, we had a layover in New York City the day before Thanksgiving, so we stayed for an extra day to see the Thanksgiving Day Parade in person. Such a great trip, and I have a post planned to talk more about our trip (tomorrow)!
loving : Selma, always and forever
we've been up to : budgeting. Dan and I are hoping to buy a house in the next 6-12 months, so we're really working on saving up money! If anyone has advice on saving up for a down payment, I would love to hear it! (Also, I've been living and breathing by my ways to save money post. I even lowered my data plan even more!)
dreading : cold weather. I've been loving the unseasonably warm weather lately, which just leaves me dreading the inevitable bitter winter. It gets really cold, snowy, icy, slushy, and gross December through February, and I'm really not looking forward to it!
working on : lots of fun Christmas posts. I'm going to be sharing a ton of crafts, cookies, and favorite songs. Can't wait!
excited about : marathon training!! I will talk more about this in an upcoming post, but I decided to sign up for my third full marathon. I'll be starting to train in January, so I'm just getting excited about finding a training plan and scheduling races around my training. I can't wait to talk about it!
watching : not much to be honest! How to Get Away With Murder is on a winter break, The Voice and Dancing With the Stars aren't holding my attention, and tennis is over for the season. I'm taking a TV break, and I'm fine with that! More time for holiday movies?
reading : 1984 by George Orwell. I got this book for Dan for our first anniversary since he was always mentioning it (and then I wrote down the wrong date in my inscription..idiot!) and now I'm reading it. This is on the list of Time's Best Books, and I'm trying to cross off 25 books before I turn 30!
listening to : Christmas music, duh!
wearing : everything warm and cozy. As soon as I get home, I immediately put on pajama bottoms and warm sweaters. I basically look like this all day :
doing this weekend : spending time with Dan's family. Tomorrow I'll be running in the Turkey Trot 5 Miler, then heading to spend the weekend with his family. We don't have much planned, but I'm looking forward to a relaxing Thanksgiving weekend (away from the crazy Black Friday crowds!)
looking forward to next month : snow activities (which is a complete contradiction to my "dreading" answer)! Last year I went skiing for the first time ever, and I'm hoping to hit the slopes a few more times this winter. I also want to try snow shoeing and cross country skiing this year.
