Hi everyone! It’s Friday, and I’m in a super festive mood because today we’re having our company holiday party – and I’m bringing pizza rolls as my potluck contribution. #winning. I’m also in a festive mood because today’s Friday Five Linkup with Cynthia, Courtney, and Mar is holiday wish list themed! Honestly, if I could just get strong, non-injured hips for Christmas that would be great. But since I can’t, I’m focusing on gifts that I could actually find wrapped under my tree. I just finished making my official wish list this week, so I put my favorite things into this post. If you’re looking for more things to add to your list feel free to steal some of mine!
1. An Aeropress: In case you missed this post, I’m totally obsessed with coffee. But I’m not a fan of the crappy drip coffee that we have at our office, so I’m always out buying coffee in the afternoons. My barista friend recommend that I add this to my list so that I can make perfect individual servings of coffee at the office whenever I want!
2. A new yoga mat: I’m totally digging this Gaiam one – it’s my favorite colors and the design is amazing! My current one is definitely getting old, so I’d like to start the new year off with some updated gear.
4. Running reading material: My husband always hooks me up with some good running reading material – he once got me a subscription to Runner’s World that I still maintain, and he also got me the Runner’s World Cookbook! Here’s another Runner’s World creation that I’m dying to read – The Runner’s Brain: How to Think Smarter to Run Better. I’m currently working on physical strength to get back to running, but I’m going to need some help with my mental strength too. I WILL get a half marathon PR soon, and hopefully this book can get me there!
5. Some positive jewelry: I’m a huge Thoreau fan (I’m still geeking out over the time I went to Walden Pond!) so I am all over this bracelet. I’m also hoping for a bracelet from Momentum Jewelry because it’s positivity that you can wear while working out. It might seem silly, but seeing a positive message whenever I look down at my wrist will totally boost my mood!
Bonus item: I’m clearly failing at my gratitude journaling, but maybe I would be doing better if I had this? I have a weird thing about leaving pages blank in a planner/journal, so I can see myself sticking to this each day. And in the Alaskan winter, I need to take some time each day to focus on the positive!
What’s on your gift list? Anything you think I should add to mine?
