Five Things Friday: just five things I’m thinking about or things that made my week, or things that I otherwise feel like sharing.
Here’s a reminder to sign up for the 4th annual Secret Santa Mug Swap 2019, if you’re interested to spread a little holiday cheer during the holiday season. I’ve been hosting this swap for the last four years. If you want to read a little more about it, click here. Registration is open until Sunday, 11/24!

Does your Health Insurance have an “incentives program”? We are with Blue Cross Blue Shields and they offer Online Health Coach Challenges (e.g. recording your exercise or “mood days”) and then they send a monetary reward to your “My BlueⓇWellness Card” that you can use for medical expenses (pharmacy or OTC items). I just finished another challenge and have earned $130 in rewards this year. Every little bit counts!

I ran by the beach last weekend and oh man, do I miss living closer to the beach. There’s just something about looking out over the water and smelling the salty air when you exercise.

As I mentioned on Wednesday, Christmas is only 5 weeks away. Can you believe it? I definitely start working on my to-do list. I’ve done some work on it “in my head”, but I need to get organized and get things on paper. Do your exchange gifts for Christmas? I love giving gifts (doesn’t have to be anything big or expensive at all) as a token of appreciation, love, and friendship.

Talking about Christmas, who’s sending Christmas Cards this year? If you’re still into the old fashioned snail mail Christmas Cards and you’ve been around here for a while, you know I do my annual Christmas Card Roll Call around this time. Come back next week to sign up, if you want to get a Christmas Card in the mail this year. Or, let’s exchange addresses, if you’re also into sending cards this holiday season!
