Running Around The Town

Whew! We ended up being busy the past few days despite going into the weekend without anything on the agenda! It felt like were were running all over town but it was a good one!

We headed out to the Mall of America on Friday evening just to browse around since it was cold outside! There were snow flurries and you'd better believe we were listening to the Holiday station on Sirius radio!

We grabbed a quick dinner before walking around and doing some window shopping. Freshii for me, Burger Burger for Andy! We strolled through Papersource for a bit so I could take a look at some of the holiday trends to use as project inspiration at work.

How pretty are these holiday papers?!

We made a quick pit stop for some chocolates along the way -- I'm super excited to try the gingerbread one that we got!

I also love checking out DAVIDsTEA for project inspiration as well -- they always have the best packaging designs full of cute illustrated patterns! 

Speaking of tea, we also picked up a tea from Teavana before heading home -- their white chocolate peppermint flavor is so good!

Saturday was spent cleaning, working on Christmas cards, and getting a bunch of things done around the house. A friend and I were talking about the old movie, Secrets in the Attic, at work a few weeks ago so I decided it to watch it that evening when Andy was out. It was so much creepier than I remember!

On Sunday morning, I headed out bright and early to grab a few groceries and pick up a few Christmas gifts! It's been awhile since I've had time to really browse Target and after walking around and sipping my Starbucks, I must say I don't really enjoy it as much as I used to? Kind of weird, but oh well! I left with everything on my list and then headed over to Costco.

Costco was a total madhouse due to the Vikings game being on at noon that day -- I tried to get in and out of there as fast as possible. Then I swung by the house to drop off the grocery haul before heading over to Life Time to meet my friend Jen for a cardio session.

Later that afternoon, I wrapped Christmas gifts and it feels SO GOOD to be 100% done with my shopping! I have a few online orders arriving this week and then everything will be wrapped and under the tree! Thank goodness for Nordstrom making it super easy to cross off a bunch of people in one order!

The rest of the day was spend doing laundry, prepping some blog posts, meal prepping, and relaxing before kicking off another work week! 

PS I'm linking up with Biana today. 

Favorite flavor of truffles?
Do you wrap gifts right away or wait awhile?
