All I want for

Christmas . . .

the scoop

A lot is going on here in this post but I have a lot to share as you can see in my too long title. My husband got me my Christmas present early because he is sweet. Also because it was something I have been wanting for a while and felt like I needed right now to keep me motivated in my fitness endeavors.

So what did he get me? An Apple watch, the newest series with the sport band (series 4). I never got on the Fitbit wagon because I was always happy with just carrying my phone when I ran. I don’t buy a new phone each year I am still using the iPhone 6 Plus going on four years now and it still works perfectly. But recently my walking partner showed me her Apple watch and I started researching and thought this is something that would be so useful for me. No carrying a big phone while working out. And gang, it is so pretty! I do so many things with it and have only had it a few days.

It works with the running app I have had for many years (RunKeeper) where I have tracked 1,559 miles of running, it plays my music that I have collected on my iPhone since 2005 (iTunes) and it is a phone so I can take and make phone calls right from my wrist. This is heaven for me since it seems I get the most calls while making dinner.

It has a breathing app that reminds me to stop and take 60 seconds to focus on breathing. It gently taps my wrist as I breath in and out. It has the nutrition tracker that I have used for several years (MyFitnessPal) and I can even take and send text messages easier than on my phone.

Well the list goes on, it tracks my heart rate, will call help if I fall and don’t respond, gives me the weather and more. I would say if you are on the fence, get off! It’s an investment that is worth the money.

Linking Apple watch options. The first one is mine. I love the bands on these others too. You can pick these up at Costco last I looked but they were selling out fast.

designer tree

One Saturday night a few weeks ago I was bored. I was having a glass of wine and watching YouTube videos of how to decorate a designer tree. Well I decided I was going to do my own. I pulled out all my old stuff bought new ribbon and a few stems from Michael’s and a designer tree was born. I am so in love with it too.

I went with a red and white theme. I wish I would have added more lights and will do so next year. For big ornaments I used some of the things I normally would hang on walls, doors or something like that. I also used our Christmas Stockings as ornaments. The pictures don’t show how really pretty it turned out.

I cut the 2.5 inch ribbon in strips of about 1.5 or 2 ft, and then tucked them up in the tree in a random pattern. I stuck the stems up in the top in place of a tree topper.

Linking the Ribbon and Stems I got for my tree this year. Everything else was old.

my look

This active wear look was inspired by my new watch. Ha! Pink! I wore white jeans, pink sneakers and a pink and cream colored pull over. In keeping with the neutral look I carried my LV Never Full GM.
