The high of my week was all the socializing I did! Saturday was our 4th annual holiday party (although the first in Minnesota) which was so much fun. We had 15 people come and everyone pitched in and brought really yummy foods. Our friend Sarah made a gluten-free 7-layer bar that is just delicious — it has butterscotch chips, chocolate chips, and coconut, but it’s made with almond flour so I can eat it! She also brought her homemade caramel corn. I would say Sarah’s food was the high of my week!
The low of my week was needing to go to the chiropractor. I started to get some really severe back pain last week, and I even got two massages in one week hoping it would help! But it didn’t, so I called a chiropractor. The chiropractor X-rayed my back and found that some of my spine is out of alignment, and I’ll need four to six months of adjustments to get it back to normal! Not super happy about that. My neck has been hurting a lot this week because of the tension its causing on my muscles, but on the plus side, my back feels better. So the low is finding out I have a problem, but I suppose it’s also a high in that I’m getting it fixed.
A blog post I loved was probably Nicole’s blog post The $10,000 Method. I thought it was a great reminder of the importance of stating committed to your goals, and that you can make time for anything if it’s important enough to you.
The best money I spent was on a pair of gray Nike capris at work. They’re really soft and comfy. I’ve bought a ton of workout tops, but wear the same couple of capris that I’ve had for a long time.
My plans this weekend include flying home to Oregon!!! So excited!!! Wheee!!!
This is a famous sign in Downtown Portland, and they add the red nose every Christmas. It said Made in Oregon for most of my childhood, but the City of Portland acquired ownership of the sign a few years ago, and so that’s what it says now. Christmas just isn’t Christmas without a drive over the Burnside Bridge to see this sign.
