just in case the world ends tomorrow…

…it is imperative that you know the following:

~ santa DID come home with me on sunday…

ho ho ho! and merry christmas! (i am going to add in that jingle bell as my xmas jewellery)

ho ho ho! and merry christmas! (i am going to add in that jingle bell as my xmas jewellery).

…and we are totally ready to celebrate family christmas on the 23rd and extended family christmas on december 25th. i am going to toss my christmas cardigan on, over top of santa, but i am glad for the sleeveless option as opening presents, laughing, and celebrating can make me hot!

~ we have made it to the shortest day of the year. cue the hallelujah chorus [i know i said the same thing last year, but really, it is the most perfect song of rejoicing for this time of year]. things only get better from now until june 21st!

~ i thought i had a pretty colourful shoe collection…

L to R: nike free; asics gel noosa; adidas boston; mizuno wave elixir 7; NB minimus 00

L to R: nike free; asics gel noosa; adidas boston; mizuno wave elixir 7; NB minimus 00

[i am loyal to the sport, not loyal to a brand, haha!].

…but check out the mizuno wave elixir 8s that arrived at the store on monday!

the womens'...

the womens’…

...and the mens'

…and the mens’

so, to continue our “this is the house that jack built” verse from the other day, now i want the shoes to go with the tech shirt to go with the compression socks

~ i have enjoyed a square of coffee culture coffee cake every day this week, thus far:

mmmm, my mouth waters just looking at this photo!

just prepping my body for the sugar fiesta that is christmas day, in our family.

~ this is my new favourite tread-milling ensemble:

the runner's modeling pose

the runner’s modeling pose

  • brooks “run” long sleeve shirt (sooo light! amazing wicking ability!)
  • lulu polka-dot shorts, purchased on sale this summer
  • mizuno wave rider 15s

i was trying to put together a really clash-y outfit…but that looks not all that bad, eh?!

~ i finished reading ready player one on wednesday which is book #16 on the year; it is highly unlikely i will get another whole book finished by the end of the year (esp if that is tomorrow – joke!). i do recommend ready player one – it was very enjoyable! i liked both the futuristic aspects and the 80s references -> rush’s 2112; atari; monty python…the latter part of the novel features some unexpected twists and revelations!

~ beautiful christmas lights can make anyone into a talented photographer:

could the front of a christmas card, no?!

could be the front of a christmas card, no?!

~ and finally…

 ♥ family, i love you!!! ♥ !!!

    Those sneakers are truly crazy!! You need to try harder for a crazy outfit though, that looks nice! I do truly love that last photo. It could indeed be a Christmas card! Watched a bit of White Christmas, but really haven’t watched any others. I need to!!

      if you check out “meals and miles” blog today, fran, meghan has some AWESOME tights that i would LOVE – i could do a lot of clashing with them!

    Hope you had a great “end of the world/shortest” day! And the good news is the world didn’t end/now the days will get longer! I did my usual Friday routine, work and food shopping…doesn’t feel like a holiday yet, but come Monday, I’m sure it will.
    I hope “santa” brings me Ready Player One!

    • 1970kikiproject  On December 22, 2012 at 2:14 pm

      ooo, let me know if you get “ready player one,” zo! fingers crossed fo you! and yes, LONGER DAYS AHEAD! yippee! have a great day!

    We are doing the same thing – my Mom is going to my brother’s house in Texas for Christmas, so we are celebrating on the 23rd too – on the 25th is my husbands family – I have five days off of work so I am happy about that!!

    • 1970kikiproject  On December 20, 2012 at 6:20 pm

    I’ve been watching a holiday movie eeeeeevery night for a couple of weeks now. It’s wonderful!

    I am beyond jealous of your shoe collection – the colour of your asics!! Love that.
    Have a GREAT extended Christmas with your family!

  • Gina  On December 20, 2012 at 2:39 pm

    Jeff and I have been counting down until this day, too! Like the darkness for some things – like putting on our Christmas lights at 3:30pm! – but also just love the long, light days that are coming again. Merry Christmas, Cath! And just love that photo at the end – beautiful!

    • 1970kikiproject  On December 20, 2012 at 2:51 pm

      merry christmas to you, jeff and the three little ones, g!! thanks for your wishes, too! at least TIME FLIES so june/long days WILL be here before we know it!!

  • stephanie  On December 20, 2012 at 10:35 am

    I’m ready for longer days and more light! And I’m pretty sure that the world isn’t going to end tomorrow, so it’s all gravy from here on in.

    • 1970kikiproject  On December 20, 2012 at 10:44 am

      yea for more light! we should see a difference in about two weeks…since we WILL still be here two weeks from now!!
