Brookester, Billy and I all have sore throats and colds (I know Brooke can’t tell me that she has a sore throat, I can read her mind) and so there is definitely no running going on. I have actually been thinking about taking 2 rest days a week now because whenever I do take two rest days all of my runs that week are much faster and feel better than just taking one rest day. Therefore, it works out perfectly that I am taking a rest day today and hopefully I will have a speedy run tomorrow.
**Please note Mother-in-law and Father-in-law that I am not too sick for you to take us to Olvera Street in LA tonight to eat taquitos. Nothing will stop me from my favorite taquitos.
I never had a chance to tell you about Brooke’s first ever trip to In-N-Out. It was a very proud moment for Billy because this is his absolute favorite.
We all wore the special hats for the big occasion.
We actually ate at In-N-Out more in Utah than we do now that we live in California so it had been a while since I experienced their burger, fries and lemonade.
After lunch we walked across the parking lot to Walmart for the Gingerbread madness to begin. Each team had $20 and 20 minutes to get everything we needed for our house.
1 of the 2 tables of goods.
4 hours of working and eating later, we had our finished products.
Now time for the reveal of who made each house.
Billy’s bro and wife made the amazing Hansel and Gretl.
Brooke, Billy and I made the snowman army (I am surprised you all didn’t guess that one was mine… I take my candy guarding very seriously and created an army to do so). Brooke was done with pictures by the end of the night.
Billy’s sister and her fiancé made the cool Grinchmas.
AND THE WINNERS…..
Billy’s brothers and billy’s brother’s girlfriend made the awesome beach getaway.
Thanks for voting and I even voted for the beach house so I am okay with not winning:) I hope you are having a great day after Christmas!
How many rest days have you been taking lately? How many days a week are you running? What do you find works best for you?
Feelings towards In-N-Out?!?! Ever been? Do you have any close to you?
Anyone else have a cold right now? I feel like a lot of people get sick over the holidays!
