I have been searching high and low for the perfect comfortable dress and I finally found it! This Marc by Marc Jacobs dress is my new favorite piece.

Turkey Trot: Through My iPhone

My absolute favorite Thanksgiving day tradition is the annual Utah Human Race Turkey Trot. It's for a great cause, (Utah food bank) and like always, my family had a blast. I ran the 10K with Tay and Drew and everyone else ran the 5K. As we were about to finish Tay decided a 10K was not long enough so he took another 3 mile lap, crazy I know! I somehow managed to take third place in my age division. It made me feel a little bit better about the huge brunch and huge thanksgiving day feast I had! 
Also, I have been getting so many questions and emails about what to wear for cold weather running so I will let you all in on my must have picks. 

1. Thin long sleeve top- here + here.
3. Long running tights/pants- here+here+here (All 3 are amazing!)
And... my favorite shoe right now is the Saucony Progrid Kinvara 3. I change shoes about every 2 months but these ones have been great! 

I hope you are all having a great Sunday and are recovering from the Black Friday madness!

winter whites + hot chocolate recipe

The holidays are officially upon us and I can't wait to start decorating my house for the holidays . I am loving the creamy/wintery whites and neutrals for Thanksgiving and Christmas this year. They are just gorgeous and keep the spirit light! Also I have a yummy hot chocolate recipe for you try. My family always makes this thanksgiving and christmas morning. Enjoy! 
Homemade Hot Chocolate...
3 1/2 cups sugar
2 1/4 cups cocoa
1 tablespoon table salt
whole milk for serving
whip cream

In a large bowl, combine sugar, cocoa, and salt, and whisk to combine well. Pour one cup whole milk in mug and microwave on high until hot. Add 2 tablespoons of mixture, stir and dissolve. For a larger batch warm the milk in saucepan set over medium-low heat. As it warms stir in 2 tablespoons of mix for each cup of milk. Add whip cream and cinnamon. 

Have a Wonderful Thanksgiving!

My sad snow bunny

 Capri's snow suit details: jacket, pants, boots / Capri's outfit details: dress, jacket, leggings, boots
I woke up Saturday morning to a find wintery wonderland and was so excited to get my little snow bunny all bundled up and ready to play outside. I was sure she was going to be in heaven- I was wrong. Capri was absolutely terrified of all the snow. I got her to stay outside for all of two minutes before Papa came to her rescue. I think I traumatized her because she didn't want me for the rest of the day, she just wanted to snuggle Grammie and Papa by the fire. Such a funny little girl. I guess we will try again this week?!

Have a wonderful-wintery Monday!

snow canyon half marathon

      This is my absolute favorite race!  I am so happy that my knee held up and I was ok to run it. I got my best time yet at 1:44, spent time with family and friends, and just had an overall blast! We are already planning for next years Snow Canyon half.  I have to throw in here too, that my husband also got his PR at 1:34. He is speedy fast! My goal is to keep up with him next time. 
Big smiles for an awesome race!
