I found the answer to help us get really fast.

December 10, 2013

I think I felt like my lunch yesterday was way too healthy because I had the opposite for dinner:  ddp, bagel and then a 10 piece chicken nugget pack on our way up north with Paige and her husband.  Nutrition at its finest.

Utah people, this is another item for your ‘holiday season must-do or else you’ll be sad’ list.

We went to see Santa’s Reindeer at Thanksgiving Point.  Clearly the kids couldn’t even take their eyes off of the reindeer for more than 1 second to take a picture.  That would just be asking too much.

Just because I am sure you have been dying to know:

These kiddos were living the dream.

They also had a guy making ice sculptures while we were there.  He was incredibly talented.

We warmed up inside with the richest hot chocolate I have ever had in my life by a Christmas tree.

Day #9 of Christmas traditions was another success.  I kind of don’t ever want this month to end.  Ever.

Anyone else have lightup shoes as a kid?  I am on the hunt for a sweet pair for Brooke.  

What was your dinner last night?

Your absolute favorite kind of animal?!?

Shay @ Whine Less, Breathe More December 10, 2013 at 5:03 am

Live reindeer?! How fun!

I never had light up shoes, but my niece has a couple of pairs. Hers are Sketchers and so cute!

Last night for dinner I had Lemon Spinach Couscous with a wedge of Garlic & Herb Laughing Cow cheese stirred in to make it creamy. It was pretty yummy!

My absolute favorite kind of animal is a cat. Love my kitties, but not in a crazy cat lady kind of way. ;)

Ellie @ Double Trouble Running December 10, 2013 at 5:04 am

No light up shoes for me! Clearly I missed out. Is it too late to join the gang??

Dinner for us last night was hamburger and chips. After a run, I might add, but still… yeah, not healthy at all.

Favourite animal is a dog! Or a bunny.

Molly December 10, 2013 at 5:08 am

I made General Tso’s tofu, rice and broccoli! It tasted just like take out! I can’t decide on a favorite animal, so I’ll just go with dog. Who doesn’t love puppies?!

Sarah @pickyrunner December 10, 2013 at 5:09 am

Hahha I always thought the brighter my shoes, the faster I’ll be. Good thing my new racing sneakers are bright pink! Whenever I try to be “too healthy” earlier in the day, I end up only wanting to eat junk food later, so i think that means junk food early in the day will help me make better decisions later, or something like that. Dinner last night was a grilled chicken salad, cheez its, and a milkshake. Solid life decisions.

Abby @ Change of Pace December 10, 2013 at 5:10 am

I honestly didn’t even think they made light up shoes anymore until I saw a little girl sporting some at church a couple of weeks ago. I never had any as a kid because I don’t think they really became a thing until I was a little older and “too cool” for light up shoes. Sad face.

Dinner last night was leftover pizza since I had to rush to my daughter’s school. She was inducted into the National Honor Society and I literally had seconds to get to the school once I got home from work. I made it though. My daughter had light up sneakers when she was little and spent so much time looking at her feet she ran into things a lot!! LOL. My favorite animal(s) are cats and dogs!! Have a great day.

Oooo. Light ups for kids are so much fun. I didn’t get my daughter a pair until she was almost three, now, that’s all she’ll wear. I blame myself for not letting her choose what she wanted. But we are in love with Sketchers’ Twinkle Toes. They are soft sided, not overly bulky like some light ups, come in 1/2 sizes, and have sparkly velcro. There is obligatory bling on the toes, and three of her “blingies” are special and light up. They are obnoxious in a non-obnoxious way, if you get what I mean.

Also- newer to following your blog- but I love the daily updates, they provide such good inspiration! Thank you!

I never got to have light up shoes or anything else flashy- being the oldest of 5 I think my mom always had hand me downs in mind for the others! I take out this frustration now on my entire shoe.. collection. My hot pink Newtons definitely rule! I blogged about dinner yesterday- homemade mahi-mahi “fish sticks” and big salad- LOVED it.

I love frogs. I have since I wanted to catch them all when I was a kid and keep them in my kiddie watering cans with a little big of grass and some water. The frogs were probably tortured, but I loved the idea that I could kiss it and maybe it would turn into a prince :)

Dr Pepper is the most unique soda. It’s flavor is very distinguished. One time I asked my bf to get me a refill of diet pepsi and he added a drop of dr p. and as soon as I took a sip I was like, “what’s wrong with this diet pepsi, does it have dr. p in it?!” He was like “wow I only put a drop in, i can’t believe you could tell” but oh could I tell :) Sorry for the boring story but I’ve never had an opportunity to tell it and now seemed somewhat appropriate! haha (I do like Diet Dr. Pepper just not in my diet pepsi :))

I had cafe rio last night in vegas! It was not up to the same quality of most of the Cafe rio I’ve been to but it was still pretty darn delicious.

Try looking on zulily.com they always have a huge variety of shoes. The downside is that sometimes shipping takes a while.

No light up shoes when I way young…I don’t think they made those 40 some years ago…in fact I still remember how great I thought I was when mom finally bought me my first pair of “Nike” tennis shoes. Finally, in the cool club…ha!

I use to LOVE ALL ANIMALS when I was younger….now, after having so many with the kids ….from guinea pigs, turtles, hamsters, dogs, and cats I can honestly say I am sick of cleaning up after hair balls, pukes, poop, pee, food thrown every where out of certain cages, hair from animal play and simply living a life around animals….ugh!

The reindeer village looks awesome! So much fun. I don’t have kids, but I want to go to see the reindeer! lol.

I loved mine when I was little. I think they need some for adults!

I loved my light up shoes! Whenever I see kids wearing them now it makes me smile- they’re always jumping and running and stomping to make them light up :)

Def had light-up shoes as a kid. They were the best. It might be cool to have them now for running in the dark!

Never had light up shoes but I did have Lacey jelly shoes and I loved them!

I think my fav animal would have to be either dogs or beef cattle. I love my cows
