back to the city
With our long Saturday runs preparing for the marathon the past 6 months our Saturdays' have been pretty full of each of us taking time to run. On of us usually left by 5:30 or 6:00 am and then the next one would go. Then we spent the rest of the day limping around from the pain. So some may have noticed we didn't do much in the city this summer. It felt good to go back downtown again today.
I took some photos of our good friends family for their Christmas card trying to recreate the one we did last year. It was so fun. It felt good to be back down there. It was freezing and I was thrilled to pull out my fifty cent garage sale find, orange scarf and hat.
We then went to visit a new family that moved to our ward and that was a pretty awesome experience for me.
My tip of the day is all about gift cards.Some friends and I went in a baby shower gift for a friend. We all went in on getting her a gift card from Target. As I got ready to buy the one $100 gift card, I thought why not buy 10 of them at $10 each and do something cute with it. Target may not appreciate my gift as they are now out 9 more cards, but they are just too cute to buy only one. I taped them to chopsticks and then put them in a canning jar. there is no minimum to the cards so just think how cute you do a birthday gift or Christmas gift. Sorry, Target don't get mad if you soon get low on gift cards at $1.00 each...
