Little Things Monday #2

Good morning everyone and...

Happy Little Things Monday!

If you're new to it...

Every Monday of the week I share with you all the little things in my life that...

Make it whole!


What this has been teaching me is...

To appreciate what I have (more so than ever before) and...

To be grateFUl for everything that surrounds me! (My Family, my friends, my everything!)

Because at the end of the day...

It really truly is the little things that are...

The bigger and most meaningFUl things in life.

Now, having said all of this...

Here's a glimpse into all the little things that have been making my life that much more special!


Bite sized goodness! (I love putting tasty things in my mouth!)

These little bites of goodness always satisfy!
(Tis a new recipe!)

My Teddy Bear! (Who loves unconditionally, will be turning 1 very soon!)

Nothing like starting off the day with one of these!

My workout dates with SuperFit! (Now that I'm on holidays, I've been loving that extra time I get to spend with!)

We trained Shoulders on this day (I think lol)
After a killer spin class that SuperFit gave!

Reconnecting with TaeKwon-Do! (And doing my very first Black Belt class since going back! It feels so amazing to be doing Martial Arts again...with my Dad!)

Life's little surprises! (Like the UPS man delivering a gift to the 'giftee' and not the 'gifter'! (Obviously not his fault! lol). Ah well, SuperFit is happy with the box and is excited to touch the goods come Christmas morning! lol)

We had a good laugh over this.

The food FUn I get to have with #RECIPEFRIDAY! (Thank you to all those who joined in and to those who checked it out!)


The time spent with Friends! (Sharing stories and laughing the night away!)

Before heading out :)
Lots of food, lots of laughs, lots to go around :)

Time spent with Family! (No words can describe how lucky I am to have my Family close to me. Although I'm sure I don't spend enough time visiting, I am reminded of how blessed I am to have them here, at arms reach!)

Baking cookies with my sister Kiki and my Mom.
At my sister's Christmas Concert with my Grampa.
She sang "Don't rain on my parade" by Barbara Streisand (who's her idol!)
She was incredible. Like really, truly, amazing.
I wanted to cry the whole time she sang.

And finally...

Putting up Noel Sapinnnnnnnnnn! (Yes, he's back!)

This will be Teddy's first Christmas!
He has no idea what to make of it but he was excited to see all the balls lol
And yes...
That is SuperFit's  Specialized Bike Seat at the top of our tree.
Makes for a great tree topper!
My Half-Marathon Medal was added as an ornament too!


I absolutely love having Noel in the house with us! (There's something about a Christmas tree that simply warms the home that extra little bit! I love it!)



Okay so...

Now that I've shared the little things (made big) in my life...

It's time for you to share yours! (I would love for you to grab the button and plug it into your post if not this time, then the next!) :)
