12 miles @ 7:55 average pace yesterday morning on my treadmill. I planned on being able to fit in 8-9 miles before Brooke woke up but she kept sleeping and sleeping so I just ran until she woke up and then I stretched out while she tried to copy me.
Day #6 of Christmas Traditions may be my favorite.
We drove up to Salt Lake City to go to the Festival of Trees. It was located in a huge conference center and the entire thing was full of trees and gingerbread houses. People would donate the decorated tree (and items around each tree) for people to buy. EVERYTHING (tickets to go in, tree money, concession earnings etc) is donated to Primary Childrens Hospital and the trees were sold for thousands!
My three favorite trees from last night:
1. The police tree because it came with a stuffed german shepherd dog that Brooke loved.
2. This one because it came with a miniature log cabin.
3. Of course the Coke (I wish they would have had a diet coke one) tree was one of my favorites.
Because we were already up in Salt Lake City it would have been a waste if we didn’t go to three of our favorite stores.
Trader Joe’s won Brooke’s heart by offering her sticker(S) and a sucker.
And mother of the year award goes to my mom for having my favorite treat waiting in the glove compartment of her car for me.
I hope your weekend is off to a great start!
