I swear to god if I see one more “Holiday Gift Guide” blog post, I’m gonna scream. I know it’s the time of year and the thing to do, but holy hell, I feel like my Bloglovin’ feed has been nothing but gift guides for weeks now, and it’s only the first week of December! “Gift Guide for Runners,” “Gift Guide for Yogis,” gift guides for men, women, children. Gifts under $50, under $25. On and on ad nauseum! I’m over it! I love you all, but PLEASE, let’s be done with the gift guides, mmkay?

Our company holiday party is tonight. This is always a good time. Our managing partners know how to throw down. There’s tons of beer, wine, liquor and catered food. I’m pretty excited to eat and drink my face off tonight. Except not really, with the drinking, because I have to drive. Boo. Once again, Ben has broom ball playoffs, so I’m on my own.

I decorated the office for the holidays this week and it’s my favorite. Since we don’t have a house of our own, I get my decorating jollies out at the office. It always gets me in the Christmas spirit, and I just love having the white lights out 🙂

Speaking of the holidays, holiday office treats are out in full force. Whether they’re gifts from vendors or clients, leftovers from someone’s party, or baked especially for the office, it feels like cookies, brownies, and candy are EVERYWHERE. Not that I’m complaining. So far this week I’ve had a chocolate chunk brownie, a dark chocolate peanut butter cup, and a triple chocolate chip cookie. Thank god I’ve been doing a better job of running and CrossFitting lately! #balance

I have a new hand cream obsession. Weleda Skin Food is amazing, guys. It has a delicious herbal scent, is all natural, and actually moisturizes my scaly dry hands. Get some!

Do you have a holiday party this weekend?
