These are a few of my favorite things...

Favorite Thing #1: If you've been stopping by my blog for very long, you may know where my blog title comes from. If not, this might give you a clue...

Yesterday tickets went on sale for longtime fan club members, which of course applies to the hubs and I, so clearly tickets were purchased.

Favorite Thing #2: I'm loving this album, which was a surprise from the hubs. I was so confused when I got in the car one day and heard Michael Buble singing Baby It's Cold Outside  with someone but I just couldn't put a finger on the female voice or figure out what CD I was listening to until I noticed he strategically placed the CD case on the console.

Favorite Thing #3: Yesterday was National Cookie Day! The hubs came home with these to celebrate the day properly. Did you celebrate?

Favorite Thing #4:The elliptical in itself is not one of my favorite things, but one of my favorite things about it is that I can read while ellipticizing. Princess Grace and I are both reading The Lemonade War (The Lemonade War Series). It's like our own little two-person book club. I got all but the last three chapters read while on the elliptical yesterday morning!

Favorite Thing #5:My girls have been adding to the fun of the holiday season with a little ballet in the form of a new Nutcracker Ballet DVD! You can find out a little more about it in this video:

I was provided a copy of Prima Princessa's The Nutcracker to review. All opinions are my own.


  1. Oooh! Awesome! I <3 U2. I've always wished I could pull off colored glasses like Bono, but no such luck.

  2. Those are all very awesome things. I love that you and Grace have your own book club. I might have to totally copy you on that. Annabelle would love it.

  3. My girls would love the nutcracker dvd! I used to teach ballet to young girls. So fun!

  4. I know two little girls who would love the DVD!!!

  5. Love the nutcracker and want to share with my daughter 😊

  6. I like to take my daughter to watch the nutcracker at the covey center for the arts in Provo. Were kind of versed in the story now ;-)

I wasn't sure going in...

Yep, I'm checking in. Why? Because I did something completely out of my comfort zone that I wanted to share with you. Last week I went to a place near Salt Lake called Dexa Body, where I got a DEXA Scan. For those unfamiliar with what that is, I asked Google to help us out:  "Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry  ( DXA , previously  DEXA ) is a means of measuring  bone mineral density  (BMD). Two  X-ray  beams, with different  energy levels , are aimed at the patient's  bones . When  soft tissue   absorption is subtracted out, the  bone mineral density  (BMD) can be determined from the absorption of each beam by bone. Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry is the most widely used and most thoroughly studied bone density measurement technology." Since that is pretty medical sounding, here's my take. A DEXA Scan is a tool to measure your total body composition. It specifically breaks down the regional composition of your lean and fat tissue. It gives a fat distribution

Carpet Burn On My Butt (and a giveaway)

After two lame, pathetic, lackluster weeks of running, I woke up excited to run yesterday. And today, I wore my running clothes all morning in anticipation of my nap time run today. Even in spite of sore glutes and tired quads from getting in some P90X Core Synergistics last night, I couldn't wait to get moving on Millie. I am a planner. Today I had a plan to get my run in while my girls slept, and my day was organized accordingly. I am also a creature of habit. The first thing I do when I roll out of bed every single day is make my bed and my girls' beds. If I do something else first, it throws off the entire morning. I am a creature of habit when it comes to my running routines as well. There are a few things that differ depending on whether I am running on Millie or outside, whether my girls are asleep or not, and whether or not they are joining me in the jogger. Yet, no matter when, where, how far or with whom I run, some things are always the same. My hair goes into a pony

Social Media: Some good, a lot of bad, and way too much ugly

There are a lot of good things that come from social media. We can connect with people we have lost touch with. We can unite as a group (runners!!) with a comment interest. We can promote a good cause. Sadly though, what social media does best is makes us feel bad about ourselves and makes us feel negatively towards others. This isn't just my opinion, although I can unquestionably support the truth behind this based on my own experience. I have spent way too much time feeling bad about myself as a result of comparing myself to others based on their Instagram or Facebook versions of themselves. And there are several people I have started feeling negatively about or have become completely annoyed with because of their IG and FB posts. It isn't just me though. There are actual studies that can back me up on the negative impact social media can have. I have read dozens of articles reviewing many different studies that show the overwhelmingly negative (vs. positive) effec
