Freakonomics: Is Migration a Basic Human Right - This podcast about immigration was the most interesting and thought provoking podcast I listened to last month. It covers many aspects of the topic of immigration with a special focus on the economic impact of immigration on the countries the immigrant is leaving and migrating to. It's definitely worth a listen!
Wow, this was my lowest reading month of the year BY FAR. I only managed to read 2 books! It was a very busy month, though, with lots of social obligations and shopping and wrapping and fa-la-la'ing. And then towards the end of the month I started a 771 page book... so yah. Not a big reading month for me but that's ok.

My mileage was also really low this month as I only ran 30 miles. That's pretty pitiful but I am trying to give my body a bit of a break before marathon training starts in February. My total running mileage for the year was 924 which is pretty good. Instead of focusing on logging miles in December, I did more strength training workouts (10), and went to 13 yoga classes, 7 of which were yoga sculpt classes (high intensity strength training + cardio). All in all I feel good about the month!
The first look is from a friend's wedding we attended in early December. The lighting in the photo is pretty bad and it's not our best photo but it was my favorite dress that I wore this month (which I got at Banana Republic 2 years ago). I love that it has sleeves!
My second look is the dress I wore to Phil's work holiday party. It's a pretty simple dress but again, I like that it has sleeves! I got it Ann Taylor 2 years ago (yes, I do own a couple of non-BR items of clothing).
