Let’s get our fat asses up and run 4.6 miles on Turkey Day! Previously. Can’t believe it’s been 5 years since I did this race. No complaints because traveling is fun! They are really trying to increase participation at this event. A wave start and bring out yer balls! Me trying not to get hit in the head…
After hosting our first amazing family Thanksgiving, it was time to end my Mother’s plea to see the tree lighting at the Circle.
If we are going to do this, let’s do this! I scored nearly front row seats to the show. We had some good laughs about how close we were.
Bundle up! It’s cold when the sun goes down, even at 55 degrees!
After 1 hour and 55 minutes of stage shenanigans….
We FINALLY got to see the tree get turned on!
That tree inspired me to get our tree up and decorated. Bought new ornaments at the end of season last year. Had to lean on the OCD to figure out how best to use them.
Started our adventure with the Evening of Promise Gala benefiting the American Lung Association. Attire was black tie with a bit of whimsy. Silly Hoosier felt this was whimsy.
Since my dad and CS’s dad have both fought and are winning against lung disease, we were especially thankful that we could support this cause and still have our fathers in our lives! Great reminder to live every day to it’s full potential!
After the event, we were treated to a wonderful stay at a friend’s condo to prep for a Colts brunch before the game.
Not only did we know the hosts of the brunch, the best family East of the Wawasee Boat Company was there with us!
Since the pumpkin display was such a hit, I was ready for my next outdoor holiday experience. The Indianapolis Museum of Art has been promoting Winterlights @NewfieldsToday. Let’s check out the preview party!
The experience starts right away as you approach the front doors. I’m always intrigued with the ever changing ceiling decor in the lobby.
JS and her minions joined us to witness the glow of a million bulbs light display!
This experience was stunning from the first step!
The lights were coming from everywhere.
A stunning 50 foot Christmas tree made completely of toys! Those big circles are kiddie pools! Very clever.
The Lilly House had animated lights to music.
Positively fantastic! Already can’t wait to see how they out-do themselves next year! Go visit!
When I heard about Top Golf, I wasn’t feeling the hype. What’s the big deal with a 3 story driving range?! Well, that was my bad. I assumed it was a driving range. I did no research. I asked no questions. After K said it was amazing, we said OK. Let’s try it out. For $5 you get a lifetime membership.
CS and I had our clubs ready, then K says, “No one brings clubs.” WTF?! Welcome to Golf meets Arcade game meets Skee-ball!
It was soooooooooooo fun! They supply the clubs, men vs women. It’s not so much about golf but about gamification. Hit balls into targets and earn points! Doesn’t matter if you duff it or kill it. Just wave your club over the laser to get a ball and SWING – hit the target!
After 20 balls, she beat us both! Revenge will be had.
