Friday night baking: Two versions of cornbread. Recipes forthcoming.
Kim and I (pictured above, source: Katie) planned a Chicago Running Bloggers holiday party hosted by Erin. (Since Kim is far north and I’m far south and Erin is right in the middle.) The party included a 3-mile run in the rain, a pot luck lunch …
… “Best Dressed” Contest …
and a Yankee Swap / Grab Bag. Kelsey is apparently disgusted by her own gift.
It was a fun morning/afternoon with a great group of ladies.

Saturday night was an annual Christmas party hosted by our friends. It includes a pretty serious White Elephant gift exchange, which included more than one creepy doll this year. I went home with the box of plastic fruit, which has made a few reappearances at this party. This year, the fruit was accompanied by an iPod shuffle.
Mostly boring day, but I took my new iPod with me on a 10 mile run. The first time in probably over two years that I listened to music while running outdoors.
The weekend from another perspective …
Why are you making all this cornbread when I’m … so … hungry …
(Don’t tell Olive I cheated on her with another cat.)
