This December has been a busy month! Because we live nowhere near to either of our families, December is the month of traveling to visit relatives.
The first weekend, we went to Minnesota to visit my family. We celebrated Christmas early, as usual. For the past few years, the weather has been relatively mild in Minnesota. Not this year! When we arrived, the high was -10F. Talk about frigid! We knew it was going to be cold, so we'd packed warm clothes, but nothing can prepare you for that harsh bite of cold on the face. Brr!
I felt sicker earlier in the week and when we got to MN, I felt even sicker. I went to the doctor and was diagnosed with Influenza A. Fabulous. For the most part, I stayed put at my parents' house because I felt too awful to do anything else. Plus, I didn't want to get anyone else sick. I'm bummed I didn't get to see any of my good friends, but at the same time, I didn't want to get them or their kids sick.

December is also the month of J's birthday! (It's an expensive month for me!) He didn't want a party of any celebration, so we just spent some quality time together. We went out to eat to celebrate another friend's birthday, and J got a free dessert, so that made him happy.
This past weekend, we flew up to Rhode Island to celebrate Christmas with J's family. While there, we met up with several other YouTube guys and had some great workouts and conversations. It's always fun to meet up in person with online friends. Each guy did a collab video of one of the workouts; it's fun to watch them and see the different perspectives! We also chatted with Steve Reeves, a bodybuilding champ and one of J's friends.

We flew home on Christmas morning, after celebrating on Christmas Eve. We were surprised by how many other people were traveling on Christmas too.

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and enjoyed some quality time with family and friends!
