If we were having coffee, I would confess that as much as I stand by my resolve to #RespectTheBird and put off all things Christmas until after Thanksgiving, I can’t believe tomorrow is already the second week of Advent. I haven’t even made a list, let alone started checking it twice! 

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that tomorrow is my annual Christmas Cookie Bake-A-Thon. I missed it last year because my work travel schedule was too crazy, so I’m really looking forward to spending the day baking cookies with my friends.

Here are some pictures from the last year I participated.

If we were having coffee, I would ask about your favorite holiday traditions. Do you attend a carol service? watch It’s A Wonderful Life? make a gingerbread house? Now that my kids are barely home for Christmas, I find it hard to keep up holiday traditions, but I think we’ll put up our tree next weekend. 

If we were having coffee, I would ask if you’ve registered for the Cherry Blossom 10 Miler lottery. (It’s open through Friday, December 11.) I’m helping with their social media again, and would love to see you in April. πŸ˜‰

  4. The tree is up and some of my purchases are coming in the mail! I am getting in the holiday spirit! The cookie baking sounds wonderful! I love holiday cookies and admire people that spend the day baking all the different varieties πŸ™‚ I may try my hand at something other than a slice and bake but I have not decided yet. Have a great weekend and thanks for coffee!

    I want to make cookies! I love those PB kisses. So easy too. I’ve just started the Amazon Priming. My computer is barely warm. It is different when the kids get older. Less hoopla? I’ve had to adjust my expectations.

    We aren’t doing much decorating or baking. With my boys gone and us traveling over the holidays it doesn’t seem worth the effort. We will be going to several holiday parties, though. I’ve always wanted to do Cherry Blossom, although the timing of it is tough with that being my ramp up for early season triathlons. And I don’t live really close anymore. The Broad Street 10 miler in Philly is another similar race I’d like to try sometime.

  14. I wish I were good at baking. Growing up, my nana and grandmother did all the holiday baking and I miss them so much. I did not get that gene at all. We do holiday movie days and hot cocoa and popcorn. Hiking in the rain is a tradition we have been keeping for the past few years.
    I have no races on my 2016 calendar yet, I just have not taken time to focus on those.
