About three weeks ago I made the decision to drop my running down from six days a week to five because my calves were bothering me so much. I thought the extra rest day might give them some reprieve, but to be honest, I don’t think it really helped much. However, I am enjoying the extra rest day!
Even though I’ve run six days a week since 2013, I’m not used to standing all day working on the house on Saturdays/Sundays. Since I’m not getting that extra rest it feels right to take an extra day off from running for recovery purposes.
Yesterday was a non-running day so I thought we could chat about some random things!
1. I decorated my office for Christmas!
I bought my mini Christmas tree, skirt and ornaments five years ago for like $25 total and it’s still going strong.
Cecil the Snowman is a new addition to my desk this year. He lights up different colors, so cute!
2. I have a new favorite nail polish color!
After spending so many hours painting the house recently I thought it was only fitting that I should take a few minutes to paint my nails. I bought this pretty Cherry Fast color from Sally Hansen Insta-Dri (my favorite nail polish line because I have no patience for waiting for polish to dry).

3. New welcome mat is down at the house!
Last Saturday I finally unrolled the new welcome mat and put it on the front doorstep. Less than two weeks until we can officially call it home.
I also picked up the prettiest white marble coasters over the weekend for only $7 from HomeGoods (what a steal)!
These will probably only work for warm drinks, as the marble won’t absorb the sweat from cold drinks… but they were too pretty to pass up. I also bought a stack of more practical wooden+cork coasters for cold drinks.
I got a few other things from HomeGoods that I’ll have to show you soon, but mostly we’re still on the hunt for nice decor. If you have any special home decor sites that you love to shop from please leave me a link in the comments below!
Did you find any good deals over the weekend?
Are you almost done with holiday shopping or just getting started?
