Thinking Out Loud #40

Time to link up with Amanda for Thinking Out Loud.   If you don't know how it works check out her first post. Basically, it's a chance for you to get all your random thoughts out and then link up with others doing the same.
 
1. Thank you for all your sweet comments, texts, messages about London. It was a rough week but he proved to be one tough little guy! Yesterday was his first day back at daycare and he seems back to his crazy, awesome, self!
Back at soccer



















2. Elf on The Shelf is back! We started this tradition last year and London loves it! He races downstairs to find the Elf (currently nameless this year because I can't remember his name) every morning. Since I usually go to bed at the same time as London my hiding spots are simple (no Pinterest-worthy shots over here haha!)


3. I am finally going to see my Physiotherapist next week. I'm getting tired of talking about my quad issues and I need someone who can actually help me diagnose it and give me a treatment plan. Even though I have six weeks until I start training for Vancouver it still makes me nervous! Until then, light workouts and lots of this...


4. I LOVE having my mom here! She's been staying with us, since Sunday, and it's so nice. It makes the days and nights I don't have London a little easier. Plus, we always have so much fun together! She's my person. Oh, and coming home to all your laundry and dishes done is pretty nice too ;) I'm keeping her!


5. Welcome Bodhi Asher! My beautiful friend Tawnya welcomed a baby boy Monday. He's gorgeous and I can't wait for some Beau cuddles!! 


6. I am almost done my Christmas shopping! I have two more little gifts to grab and then I'm done! I kept to a strict budget this year and it made things less stressful. I usually just want to keep buying and buying! 
7. I am making some big changes to my finances. Speaking of money, I'm actually meeting with my banker tomorrow to have a serious look at my finances. Becoming a single-income household was/is very tough. I am still struggling to budget my income and not live paycheck to paycheck (something I expect won't end for awhile.) I am hoping we can work out a plan to get me out of debt and still build an emergency savings plan. 

8. Local races for the win! As I've mentioned. That means less traveling for races (something that cost me a lot of money this year...) I'll be keeping my calendar to local races (or Vancouver where I have family to stay with) until the end of next year. Thankfully, there are so many amazing local races I'm looking forward to running!! 

9. I need some Christmas baking ideas! I'm hosting a girls (and their kids) Christmas party soon and I want to make a few treats to add to the potluck! They have to be a) delicious b) easy to make. I have a few ideas from Pinterest but, let's be honest, mine never turn out that amazing! 

10. I'm adding these Pro Compression Holiday Socks to my Christmas wish list. Think about the race outfit potential!!



Alright, it's time for me to shut down for the night. Thanks for reading my random ramblings today!
What's your favourite thing to bake over the holidays?
Does your family have an Elf On The Shelf?
Name one race on your 2016 calendar.
