Updated for Mon: I will be productive this break!

I am going to use this post as a chronicle of what I do each day of Christmas break.  I have a couple projects that I need to do, and I need to keep up with my running.  So, this is going to help me out...hopefully.

Projects over break:
1.  Finish wedding album
2.  Update resume
3.  Get Christmas cards out
4.  Finish stocking stuffers
5Run 10 miles\week
6.  Buy for Panty Exchange 
7Read up on blogs and find some new friends.  I also would like to get away from the number of followers being 60, 61, 62.  It seems to fluctuate up and down every day.  I am ready to move past those weird numbers!  
 8.  Read this One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are | [Ann Voskamp]

Friday 12\21\12
I know I still had to work, but I am counting the evening as part of the break.  Anthony and I went Christmas shopping.  I finally assembled our Christmas cards and put them in the mail.  I have got to become more organized with those.  At least this year I wrote down everyone's addresses, so I don't have to ask them for them next year.  

It's my dad's birthday, so I can't forget to call.  Fortunately, I packed for our trip to Amarillo last night, so I am able to relax while Anthony finishes up.  We made it to Amarillo and enjoyed an afternoon of relaxing and a dinner of Mexican food.

I am up at 8:30.  I am not sleeping my day away.  I would super love to go running and try out my new running pants, but it is like 20 degrees outside.  I am going to wait a little bit until it warms up.  New Running Pants I am hoping that these capris will stay in place while I run.  I will let you know how that goes later.  I went running 3 miles today!

Running Pants Update: I love my new running capris! I have been looking forever for a pair of shorts\capris that will stay in place.  I have enough trouble breathing while I am running, I do not need to worry about pulling my shorts up or pulling them out of my rear.  I was concerned that they were too tight for my jiggly butt, but I really like the way they look.  I highly recommend stopping in Kohls for a pair.  They were 25% off already, and then I got an additional 30% off with my coup.  SCORE!

Last night we hung out with Anthony's parents and ordered pizza.  We also got to assemble a gingerbread Christmas tree.  I highly recommend these as you do not have to build a house but rather merely stack stars.

We also stayed up too late and started watching Season 3 of Downton Abbey.
This was a picture of when we first started watching the show!  I am excited to get back into it.
