The Holiday is upon us!

Linking up with Holly & Tricia for the Weekly Wrap

Even  though this past week was only a four day work week, I still felt exhausted. As we get deeper into the Holiday season I bet that feeling will not subside with all the holiday hussel and bustle going one. There is always something to do (or something that needs done)!

This is what we were up to!

Sunday we had our visit to Longwood Gardens for their Christmas display.

My Christmas trinkets ready to be displayed.
Monday I had off work so I finished up my Christmas decorating. I did the inside and then Scott and I put up outside lights. I think putting up outside lights is my least favorite. The weather is usually nice when we put them up but it might not be nice in January when we have to go out and take them down. For that reason I am a "less is more" type of person but my husband is not!

         Also this week I got my first "unofficial" Holiday gift this season compliments of Mizuno!

I'm a sucker for the WaveRiders and these new WaveRider 21's are just perfect! I love the color which is called "Highrise -Greystone"  but the 21's also come in three additional colors (in shades of blue, purple, and pink) which I love just as much!  You really should check out these other gorgeous shoes I know you're going to love the colors too. You can see them HERE.

So of course I had to take them out on a run. It was a busy week so this was my only run for the week but it was a good one! I surprised myself and actually got in 4 miles. Running in the evening is quite peaceful but it is hard to get a lot of miles in before it gets dark.  The first 2.5 miles were at the island and then I decided to run across the bridge into town and order Chinese takeout for dinner. After placing my order (which she said would be done in 15 minutes), I ran back to the island to get my car so I could drive over to pick it up.  This was perfect timing because it was just getting dark by the time I got back to my car and my Garmin showed I had done exactly 4 miles!

 One thing I love about all my Mizunos is that they are just as comfortable for me to run on hard surfaces (like pavements and sidewalks), as they are for me to run on softer surfaces like the trails.  Although just as comfortable as my previous Mizunos, the 21's actually have a redesigned mesh upper.  Even though I mentioned there were a lot of great colors in this style, I'm glad I was gifted the Greystone ones.  My shoes get SO dusty when I run on the rail trail and now perhaps my shoes won't look as dirty!

In other holiday news...

I was so happy to see Friday finally arrive!  I had a few things to pick up at the mall after work and then my sister and I had plans to go to "Late Night Shoppers Night" in our town.

This was SO much fun! All the stores were decorated for Christmas and what we didn't know is that each one of them had free hors'douevre, wine, and cider.  I teased Lacey that it was turning into more of a pub crawl!  My plan was to grab a slice of pizza for dinner as we walked through town but by the end of the night, I didn't need to!

On Saturday we went back into town for the free Holiday movie that was showing which was Christmas with the Kranks! -M

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Mizuno. The opinions and text are all mine.

Are you doing holiday activities yet?  How are you doing on your holiday shopping?
