Josse said, “Let’s go run a really beautiful 7 mile loop up in the mountains.”
She forgot to mention that we would go so high up in the mountains that our ears would pop due to elevation change.
How in the world is it 50 degrees in Utah during December?
Cascadia 9s, you treat me really well on the trails.
Well, turns out climbing 1,800 feet in less than 4 miles makes your legs feel completely like jello mixed with a side of calves on fire.
Christmas tradition #12—> Christmas Tree Pizza = yellow pepper for the star, tomatoes for the ornaments and spinach for the green parts.
Lindsey invited us on over for a crazy Christmas party.
We painted our nails for the occasion.
PB bars for the win!!!!

I tried to give your spinach Christmas tree a “like”! Too used to Facebook. Anyway, suuuuper cute.
Not only do I look for that but I also FREQUENTLY want to “like” people’s comments and get so frustrated when it’s all or nothing. Cause when you start commenting on twelve people’s comments, it’s time for therapy.
But some of them are so good you just can’t not… (that is a real sentence)
Emily @ Sweet Summer Smiles
I want to make your Christmas tree pizza! I’ve never seen anyone do that!

Watching Christmas movies tonight with a fire in the fireplace and snuggles under blankets! And hot chocolate ;)
Molly @ Motherhood and Marathons

This Saturday: We went on a lovely, super icey walk around our neighborhood – just my husband, our toddler, and me!
Our December got super warm this week, all the snow melted and now it’s re-freezing into one giant ice sheet. Crazy weather! Might as well just skate everywhere.
Erin @ Erin's Inside Job
That pizza is super cute!
I am happy that I can finally catch up on blogs; we moved on Fri and discovered that there is no wiring for cable or internet after the previous owner renovated. #firstworldproblems. Hopefully we can get it fixed tomorrow!
That pizza looks delicious and is so cute!
