'Tis the Season

I just adore the December holiday season. The lights. The sparkle. The joy.
It is truly beautiful and special. Even though I don't celebrate Christmas I find so much joy in this season and wish the lights and sparkle could last a bit longer into the new upcoming year!

The Good. The Random. The Fun. v. 50

The Good:
We had our first snowfall of the season! 4-5ish inches of beautiful flakes fell Saturday. Oh how it made my winter loving heart happy.

The Random:
There is an art gallery at BU that I often run by. I hadn't run past in ages and had a good "huh" moment when I saw this in the gallery the other day...inflatable art?

The Fun: 
I hosted my annual Friendsgiving last weekend. A fun way to extend the holiday season!

Peanut Butter Banana Baked Oatmeal

Cold Boston weekends means it's time for warm weekend breakfasts!
I whipped this one up a few weeks back as the temperatures plummeted and it was a fantastic warm start to my day. 
The beauty of baked oatmeal is that the recipe possibilities are really limitless. This time I used the base for my Banana Berry Baked Oatmeal and turned it into a pan of peanut butter and banana goodness.
I used the ever versatile PB2 powder, adds so much creaminess with a bit less guilt. Topped it all with coconut flakes and popped it in the oven.
 This makes enough for 4 breakfasts for me...enjoy!

Bubbles!

I'm forever blowing bubbles, 
Pretty bubbles in the air...
They fly so high, 
Nearly reach the sky...

{I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles -- Dean Martin}

This man was helping children blow gigantic bubbles in Central Park.
The light was catching them just so.
Floating through the air.
Popping as oos and ahhs filled the crowd.
A nice peaceful pause in a busy spot in the park.

The Good. The Random. The Fun. v. 49

The Good:
My BAA Distance Medley finisher certificate arrived this week! So fun to look back on this achievement as I work towards my new goal!

The Random:
An old knee injury flared so I am being good and getting it attended to. While waiting on my doctor the other day I had a good laugh at the random hip/pelvis hanging out on the counter. The rest of the skeleton ran away apparently!

The Fun:
Run clubs are all the rage these days. Robin and I joined the Heartbreak Hill Run Club Thursday after a super fun run to a local brewery. As I texted my mother "we joined a running cult." So fun though!

Oh look, another running heavy post...I'm deep in the throws of my marathon training (ok like 2 weeks in...) but am still fundraising! If you would like to donate to my amazing charity click here (thank you!)
