I hope everyone had a happy thanksgiving! Hopefully, everyone enjoyed a nice time with their families and friends and ate more food then your stomaches can handle! I know I did…

Right now, I’m currently back home in Jersey because it’s Thanksgiving Break. AKA the best 5 days of the year. When I head back to school on Sunday, it will be a week of classes, then a week of finals. Basically, life is going to suck once I hit Baltimore Sunday evening.

After a 5 hour drive home on Tuesday evening, I was greeted by a super-happy puppy and the love and warmth of my home. I could not be more in bliss. As much as I love Loyola and my friends (aka my family) there, there is something special about coming home for the holidays. I don’t want to leave.

One of the best things about being home is the fact that I actually have time to get a workout in every once in awhile, in my home gym! It’s heavenly. I spent a good chunk of time there on Wednesday. I went to the pilates mat class, which ended up being core-based yoga because their was a substitute instructor. Still, it was pretty great. Followed by some core and the Frisky Fall workout routine from Tone It Up, I was set to eat my heart out on Thanksgiving.

Nothing like a good, sweaty workout to make Thanksgiving guilt-free!

This year, Turkey Day was a little different for my family. Usually, our holidays are bustling with babies and all members of our family are there. This year, because of the recent influx of babies being born, it was just my intermediate family and my aunt and uncle. All of the other members stayed at their respective homes with their newborns. It was a different feeling all night. No screaming children, no toys to trip over. While it was definitely a relaxing evening, I didn’t liked it. Our family is defined by the crazy Italian-ness. Thankfully, we’ll all be together again for the Christmas holidays.

Now that the holiday is over, it’s back to the reality. The remainder of my weekend will be spent doing homework while drinking copious amounts of homework, spending time with my family and puppy, and missing Chris terribly (how sad is it that we can’t go 5 days without seeing each other?? Ohh the crazy thing called love). As I’m writing this, I am sitting in Barnes and Noble trying to do multiple assignments at once. Kill me now.

I will never understand why teachers leave all the big assignments for the last week of class. Plan these things out please! I have over 40 pages to write and two powerpoint presentations to make, all due before December 9th. It’s going to be a fun week…

Later today or tomorrow, I will be posting about the Holiday Motivational Mail swap I’m running! If you know was motivational mail is and you know you want to participate, fill out this form!
