Well, I did it! The Happy Thanks-I-Can-MOVE-Giving Challenge has been a success! I blew the minimum of 30 minutes of movement a day out of the water and I donated 5 bags of clothes, toys, and small appliances on Tuesday!
I didn’t check in yesterday because I was wiped! I hit the gym, made soup out of the leftover turkey, went shopping with my mom, played chauffeur for The Husband and his dad so the didn’t drink and drive and watched movies with my parents. It was another awesome day. As for my note of gratitude, well this one is simple: I’m grateful I found a dress for The Husband’s Christmas party and a new winter coat for The 9-Year-Old, both 60% off!
I didn’t take any photos of the dress but here it is online. I love it! So simple and elegant. I’ll be sure to take a photos at the party.
Today we said goodbye to everyone, ate lots of leftovers and cleaned the house. It was exactly the quiet, relaxing day I needed after hosting everyone for Thanksgiving. And I’m grateful The Boys were on board with my plan to clean and organize. It was a total family affair and now the house is ready to decorate for Christmas tomorrow!
I can’t wait to read everyone’s challenge updates. I’ve been enjoying your comments all week and I’m curious if you experienced the same gratitude begets gratitude begets happiness phenomenon I did. I found myself just a little more joyful this week, noticing lots of small things that made me smile, like right now. The Husband just got back from bringing The-3-Year-Old up to bed and he’s making me a drink. We have a date to cuddle on the couch and watch a movie alone for the first time in days and just the thought of it is making me happy.
On that note, I got to go! Leave your #TGChallenge updates below and I’ll pick winners Monday!
