#TOOFULLTOMOVE

Okay so I get that it's normal and all to eat insane amounts of food over Thanksgiving, but really Erin? I outdid myself this year. I blame it entirely on the mashed potatoes, I literally can't get enough of those things. And really now that I say that, they don't even have to be mashed for me to inhale. Potato chips, potato soup (currently in the crock pot), potato wedges, potato garnishes in my glass of wine, it's all equally delightful. Technically I haven't garnished my wine with a nice slice of potato but I'm just saying, I wouldn't put it past me at this point. I became SO full that I forced myself to go running yesterday. That's a big deal because well, I don't really run....unless there is a great sale at Target. Anyhow, the past four days have been filled entirely with way too many calories (so yes, it's been awesome) and equally great time spent with friends and family.

I like a little coffee with my RumChata

And now because I need to go down as much warm lemon water as humanly possible in hopes of getting "things normal again", I am going to leave you with this. Fortunately for you, "this" is a heck of a lot of awesomeness. It's those sponsors of mine--they are sweeter than....potatoes? Which reminds me, if you would like to be included in next months giveaway, have at it. All sign up info is found here!

Cheers to our bodies returning back to normal. Just in time for Christmas. Thankfully NO good food is consumed around that Holiday ;)

  1. Don't feel bad about the turkey demise of yummy food. We ALL go through it. I just got back from a week long of yummy food and will be hitting the gym later today for at least a two hour session. Everyone back on that treadmill and feeling great again!!! Cheers, Lena

  7. Ohh my goodness potatoes are my weakness too!! It's a good thing the one thing on my list this year is a PolarFt40 and new running shoes (yeah I'm a nerd like that). Staying active helps keep the I-ate-too-much blues away!

  34. I love that turkey hat, and that little girl and her "I'm so over it" look.

    I'd use it to help purchase a new vacuum, because the amount of pet hair around my place is borderline inappropriate.

    ReplyDelete

  40. Going to three different Thanksgivings, I DEFINITELY ate too much. One of the things I really wanted this year was a new mountain bike... and we bought two on Saturday!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Too funny.... I'm such a potato lover too! French Fry form is my weakness (thank goodness those weren't on the table for thanksgiving). I think we all ate way too much this weekend! So worth it though!!
    I'm really hoping for a new pair of boots this year. I would love to splurge on a really good pair!

  42. A Kitchenaid Stand Mixer is at the top of my list. Either that or cheese fries with bacon because I'm on a ridiculous low-carb diet and would kill for some deep fried startchy goodness.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Ok I have to ask, what does he warm lemon water do for you? Or do I not want to know? Am I the only one who doesn't know this? I'm definitely feeling the effects of Thanksgiving plus celebrating my baby's first birthday. Thanksgiving dinner + way too many birthday cupcakes means I really need to follow your lead and go running!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I'm dying for the new Garmin 620 for my running addiction. Ahh it's amazing(ly expensive).

    ReplyDelete
  45. I'm planning on rebonding my haor for christmas. My frizzy hair definitely needs some lovin :)

  49. You look adorable with the turkey on your head. Why not having fun while celebrating ;)
    On my Christmas list i have the big baking plans with mom. We do that every year - and it's one of my personal highlights since i was little. :) Not that much in the shopping mood these days. (Even though some really warm uggs wouldn't be that wrong i guess :P )
    xo, thanks for the giveaway. :)

  81. I really really really want a Canon Rebel T3i because I think it will force me to relax instead of constantly driving myself to the edge as I try to get into grad school. It was on sale yesterday on Amazon and I almost dropped the $400 on it, but I didn't...

    ReplyDelete
  82. I don't think I'm getting anything for Christmas this year. If I won, the money would go towards the move to the UK I'm planning.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Hi Miss Erin. I hope you enjoyed your turkey day!! Thanks for hosting such an amazing giveaway.... as crazy and ridiculous as it sounds A NEW CAR is on my wishlist for Christmas this year. My husband and I have been sharing a HUGE diesel truck for the past 5 years (I sold my car so I could afford to go back to school) and now that I am graduated I think it's time!! Right?! Well, he's promised within the next month we should be getting a new one, so I feel like it's appropriate to be on my wishlist this year... since it's been on my wishlist for years now ;)

    ReplyDelete

I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
