Friday Night Lights...

Did I mention I was doing the 5k a day challenge in December?  Did I also mention that it is actually harder than it might seem?  I am guessing you wise people already knew that.  So far this week, I have hit every day.  It took some adjustments to the schedule but I am proud to say I got it done!

Friday night after I left our store, I headed to Stone Mountain for my run. Stone Mountain used to have light displays up all around the mountain and families would drive through in their cars to look at the lights but that changed last year.  I learned this after I came up with the idea to have some friends meet me for a run through the lights last year.  #fail.  They had a few lights up but nothing like in previous years.

Now have created this little Christmas village and you have to pay $28 per person to go inside.  I am tempted.  I really want to but....  it is $28 so it better be pretty awesome up in there.  There are some Christmas shows, train rides, a parade and Santa so, if I had kids, I probably would go in and check it out.  Maybe I will do it before Christmas.  For now, I will be satisfied to enjoy the lights from the outside :)

Moving the star a little to the left (perhaps I could have caught the show for free through the slats in the fence...)

The lights really are pretty amazing.

I hear there is kettle corn inside.  Totally worth $28.

Nice job on the 5k a day! I'd have a hard time with staying consistent on that. Pretty lights!

I think 28 sounds like a lot! Good job on the 5k a day. I think it sounds very hard.

bummer about the lights! the place here that you can drive through is (i think) $7 or $10 a car. for $28 it better be the most awesomest christmas display ever! :)

The Lake Lanier Island lights are like $65/car! I guess they have to recoop some of the electricity cost. Thank you for pushing that star back into place!!! We almost lost it! :)
