The Gift Of Giving / Snapshots 02

Weather sure is strange. We’ll have days where it’s freezing and days where it almost feels like Springtime. Warm winter days feel nice but are always a little worrying.

New favorite sweater from  Yesstyle .

I bought this sweater during Black Friday from Yesstyle, and was surprised by the quality. It’s definitely a new favorite. Buying from sites like Yesstyle can often be hit or miss, but I find as long as you give the reviews a good read, you don’t have much to worry about.

Week 2 with the HelloFresh meal kit. I enjoyed the food this week waaay more than last week. Everything tasted delicious and I made sure to save all the recipes for later. My favorite was the simple ragu. It was super quick and tasted like it had simmered for hours! I’m a huge fan of easy pasta for my lazy days so this will definitely be revisited in the near future.

Christmas Tree with presents 2018

I’ve never thought about it before, but this year I realized I love giving gifts to loved ones. Maybe it’s because I’m finally at a point in my life where I can afford to give a little more. Kind of.

Since we all travel to our respective homes for Christmas, we opened our gifts early. I got Flings some kick-ass Adidas gear that I knew she’d love. I also got some items for myself because, you know, I deserve it.

I’m really happy with everything I got, especially considering I haven’t bought new training or racing gear in years. With this holiday haul, I don’t expect to need anything new for a long while.

Ramon and Flings got me Mario Party for the Switch! I forced them to play with me as soon as all the gifts were opened. Of course, cheater Ramon ended up winning, but I plan to have many more rematches where he loses. * looks over at him with a smug look *

How do you feel about giving gifts? I know some people find it super stressful, but I love trying to figure out the perfect present for people. I’m interested to hear what you guys think, though.
