Lights on the Lake

That's one of the largest and most popular holiday events/attractions we have in our area during the holiday season.  Last night Lights on the Lake opened to the public and no cars were allowed; walkers only.  It was my first time walking thru it and it was WONDERFUL!  There were thousands of people there, bundled up in winter gear, drinking free hot cocoa and gazing at the jumbo holiday light extravaganza.  It was so nice.
It's a four-mile walk to see all of the light displays. 

Good thing for the distance because afterwards, we went to a local restaurant for dinner.  The bf wanted Snickers cheesecake for dessert, but the waitress broke the news that the restaurant was sold out of the tasty treat.  (God's first attempt to let us know we did not need dessert).  So we leave and make our way to Friendly's for a sundae.  After standing in line by the door for a good ten minutes and not being greeted or acknowledged by the staff, we left.  (God's second attempt to let us know it's just a Monday night on Thanksgiving week; a time to be working out at the gym in preparation for the upcoming all-you-can-eat turkey buffet).  So it's around 10 p.m. on a Monday night by now.  I mentioned the brilliant fact that just across the street at McDonald's we can get ourselves a hot fudge sundae for just $1!  What a steal, right?! So that's what we did.   .   .

This morning I woke up with a food hangover.  (God's little way of letting me know I should have listened to him last night). 

Minus the unneccessary hunt for dessert, it was a very fun night! 

On tonight's agenda: exercise and baking.  I'm going to try and make sugar cookies tonight with my Thanksgiving cut-outs and then frost them tomorrow.

Have a great night!
