On Christmas Day, Eric and I had our first married Christmas. Eric knows me well and many running inspired gifts were unwrapped: ipod shuffle (in ORANGE!!!), new running shirts, running Times mag, run for the cure shirt :). We had a great first Christmas together and then went over to my mom's. Amongst many other incredible gifts, Santa left a GARMIN 405!!!!! Woot!!!! We had a nice brunch and then went over to our family friends. We had a very fun time there, as we always do. New sneakers will be coming my way and the day was full of laughs. (not to mention drunken requests/orders? for "nieces/nephews" but that's a story within itself).
Today, I slept in, put on new running gear, made a new playlist and went out for a run. With Eric!!! (well at least for the first 2 miles). Then my mom, Eric and I met up with my friend/teammate/roommate from UVM, for brunch. She's since moved to Autstin, then Boston, then Michigan, then Chicago and now Montreal (We only graduated 6 years ago!) so it was fun to catch up. Neily's one of those friends that no matter how long it's been, we step right back in like old times. We even dressed alike today!
Now we're back home, watching the Giants...and the blizzard. I'd say a pretty wonderful holiday!
