Christmas is so close and as much as I’m not a fan of the cold weather getting colder I am excited for this winter for obvious reasons! 😉 While we wait let’s play This or That? Winter Edition!

This or That? Winter Edition | www.amylorraine.com

 

real tree x fake tree
In theory I like the whole real tree concept, but adding the lights and having to water it on the regular… makes the fake tree win everytime.

staying fireside x playing in the snow
I’d rather be warm and freezing my butt off.

christmas movies x christmas music
Ugh. This is hard because how can you have a real Christmas without either one? But I guess if I had to really choose, it would be movies over music becaue technically their is a bunch of music in movies 😉

wrapping presents x using gift bags
Eco friendly Amy AND lazy Amy agree on gift bags. But they both will admit there is something better about presents being wrapped. I have a feeling I’ll get back into it once Quentin can unwrap things because we all know wrapping paper and boxes are more fun than gifts for little kids anyways.

christmas eve x christmas day
Once Quentin is old enough to understand Christmas and have the magic and wonder of Christmas Day I’m sure I’ll change my mind, but currently Christmas Eve is more fun to me than Christmas Day.

christmas x new years
New years is just not fun to me. Must be the grandma status but staying up to watch the ball drop or going out to party are no longer ideal situations in my book.

snowmen x reindeer
Forest puppies that can fly? Clear choice here.

the grinch x buddy the elf
Both. Depending on the day. I probably related more towards The Grinch but catch me on a good day and I’ll surprise you with my Buddy The Elf personality.

sugar cookie x gingerbread man
More options in terms of shapes and decorations. #ArtisticInterpretation is really important to me 😉

hot chocolate x hot tea
Hot chocolate is Christmas. Tea is Fall.

candy canes x gingerbread houses
Gingerbread houses are like candy leggos puzzles. More fun to put together and to eat while you decorate.

snow angels x snowmen building
I don’t have the patience to build a snowman to be completely honest.

sledding x skiing
I’ve never actually been skiing, only snowboarding.. but I’d still pick sledding. You can sit on your butt and enjoy the ride.

peppermint mocha x gingerbread latte
It’s been my go to for quite a few weeks. And when you swap with coconut milk and get no whipped cream, it’s totally vegan at Starbs.

winter olympics x super bowl
Super bowl and strictly for the halftime show. I don’t even care about the commercials anymore.

Life Lately | Vol 5 | www.amylorraine.com

 

Reading Bringing up Bebe by Pamela Druckerman. I’ve read raves about ‘le pause’ so I’m hoping this will help give *some* insight
Playing #ALLOFTHECHRISTMASMUSIC
Watching Christmas movies now that I’m done rewatching Gilmore Girls & the revival 20,000 times.
Trying this 25 Days of Wellness challenge!
Cooking Mac & Cheese on the regular. Thanks Daiya.
Eating vegan sushi and lots of french fries too.
Drinking Peppermint Mochas and Steamed Apple Cider with two pumps of Cinnamon Dolce Syrup from Starbs.
Pinning food and baby shtuff.
Going to weekly midwife appointment now and childbirth classes! The countdown is on!
Wearing yoga pants but photographing myself in cute outfits the rare times I get dressed up.
Loving being able to buy baby clothes. We were showered with SO much but it’s still so fun to get some cute pieces!
Hating nothing really. I’m grateful. That’s it.
Realizing that 2016 is almost over. It flew by and I’m scared for 2017 to do the same.
Feeling anxious and excited.
Hoping that the rest of this month continues with a healthy pregnancy and we have a safe and smooth delivery.
Celebrating holidays and happiness.
Smelling Christmas Spirit and Northern Lights Black Spruce.
Thanking everyone for their love and support.
Finishing getting everything ready for Q’s arrival. #Nesting

Most people see the end of the year as a time to disregard their wellness but I see it as a bigger reason to focus on it. Germs are being spread, food is flowing, and we tend to get sucked up in the busy crayness of shopping and events.  Because of the new year we’re quick to put it off until January 1st, but I say we get a head start on some wellness goals!

Do you remember that Live Better Challenge I was doing? Yeah.. me neither.

tumblr_m1mko6tvmx1ql5yr7o1_500But really… The last time I updated I had completed the Green Beauty challenge and planned to change things up in August and to finish out the rest of the year.. but it didn’t happen. Life (aka pregnancy + life changes) really got the best of me this year. So much got thrown off but I’m not stressing about it. And I am going to do a 25 Days of Wellness Challenge starting December 1st, and I’m also going to have an accountability group.. If you want to join I’ll be sharing it next week with a cute coloring page download to help you (*ahem* mainly me) on track! 😉

I  hope you all enjoy your Thanksgiving tomorrow! Gobble til you wobble friends.
