One of the fancy neighborhoods in town has excellent Christmas light displays.Not only are the houses beautiful, but the decorations are very festive.
Last night, Sister #2 and I thought this would be the perfect place for a Holiday Run. We ran 3 miles while viewing the Christmas lights and decorations. Here are some pictures from our run:

Last night, I tried another new recipe. I made Shrimp and Grits. A few years ago I spent a long weekend in Gulf Shores, AL. On that trip I had my first taste of Shrimp and Grits. It was delicious!!!!
When I found this easy Shrimp and Grits recipe I knew I had to try it out. In my opinion, my Shrimp and Grits were just as good as what I tasted in AL!
If you are looking for something new to try I recommend this dish! I found the recipe on the Food Network's website.

Christmas Parade and Christmas Lights
We were in another parade. I'm becoming quite the parade girl! Later in the evening we enjoyed some festive Christmas lights in Chickasha, OK.

It's been a busy week. Here's a review of what's been going on in my world...
1. I'm trying to win a competition.
Starbucks is rewarding one person Starbucks drinks for life! Well, maybe it's for a year? You know, I don't really know. All I know is I'm trying to win!!!
2. I'm trying to win another competition.
My neighborhood is having a Christmas decoration contest. I decided to participate by hanging a few lights around my house. I thought I was doing pretty good until I checked out the competition. Last night, Sister #2 and I went for a walk to scope out the competition. Let's just say I am not going to win.
3. Christmas cards have been mailed!
4. Wednesday night entertainment.
5. Working out.
I'm still trying to work off the Irish nachos I ate last Friday. I think it will be a few more days.
Happ Thursday! It's almost the weekend!

We both did great! And by great, I mean we finished without dying!

We all know about Holiday Stress. It creeps up on us every year. If you're like me, the first of December starts out exciting and fun. However, fast forward a week and you'll find me tired, possibly grumpy, and stress eating. It's not pretty.
This week I read an article on ways to prevent Holiday Stress. Some of the tips were pretty good so I thought I'd share with you.
1. Take a whiff of citrus
2. Walk away from troubles
3. Go tech-free
4. Turn up the tunes
5. Fit in excerise
6. Think positive
7. Stay hydrated
Here's to a stress free month!

My 100 New Recipe challenge is moving along nicely. Last night, I made recipe #7, Delicious Black Bean Burritos.
Folks, this is a great weeknight recipe. It's simple, calls for normal ingredients, healthy, and most important TASTY!!!
Here's a couple pics from dinner. Please keep in mind that I am not a food photographer.
