Have you read The truth about toning shoes in the
Holiday issue of MOM Magazine? Lots of my friends have them,
but I wasn't convinced they were worth the cost. Some people swear
by their Sketchers and Fit Flops. Others have just cluttered their
closet floor. If you don't know what a toning shoe is, check out
this walking shoe review: Guide to toning shoes to see what the hype is
Michael Gray, MSPT, COMT shared his opinion in
the story below. Let us know - what do you think about toning
No matter if you are a Beaver or a Duck from down South
tomorrow's Civil War game has huge implications.
Ducks are sitting pretty at the top of the BCS with a National
Championship game on the line. The Beavers are on the cusp of
a post season bowl game.
At our house we are die hard BEAVER FANS!!! We have a
Beaver Parking sign in the driveway, Beaver Bank on the shelf,
Beaver cups in the kitchen. My husband has a Beaver rug and
keyboard in his office. I have black and orange fingernail
polish (that my girls borrow a lot). We all have BEAVER
wear bulging out of our closets. There isn't too much Beaver
stuff we don't have.
My daughters had a school talent show and dressed in black and
orange and sang and preformed a cheer routine to the "original" OSU
Fight Song. I think they can sing it in their
Needless to say....WE BLEED BLACK AND ORANGE!!!
Knowing how much is riding on this game for both teams we made a
little visit to Santa last weekend. In all of our Beaver
Regalia we made a special pre-Christmas request: A BEAVER
CIVIL WAR WIN!!!
Although the jolly man in red did not guarantee anything he said
he would see what he could do...I have great faith....YOU GOTTA
We weren't able to secure tickets for the whole family so we are
heading to my mom's to watch on the BIG screen t.v. but my husband
got word today that he gets to spend tomorrow morning with ESPN
Game Day! (Lucky Dog) I think that is a good sign
that things are in our favor.
Talking about Civil War...I am sure many of you will be
tailgating starting early in the morning if not tonight...Did you
know that your local McDonald's will provide ice for your
cooler? I had no idea until I was talking with an employee
the other day. She had said if you need extra ice or just
forgot you can bring your cooler in and they will help you
So, while you're there you can also pick up one of my favorite
tailgating items....Chicken McNuggets... yes you heard
right. My kids can be picky at times and I find that
McNuggets are the same here as they are in California as they are
in New York. They even have a party pack of 50 McNuggets just
for the occasion. I will be heading there tomorrow before I
watch the game. Happy Kids mean more time for me to be couch
coaching our team to VICTORY!!
So, watch the game tomorrow and cheer on your favorite
team! You know who I will be rooting for! GO
One of my favorite holiday traditions is making Candy Trains.
The kids love it - how could you not love bowls and bowls full of
candy and frosting? You can keep it simple or get creative and make
a how candy village. The directions were passed on by a friend, and
I'm afraid I don't have any specific info on the origin other than
"Home Arts Festival" to give proper credit - so if you know, let me
The instructions can be found here, complete with notes on
frosting recipe and how to construct different elements: Candy Train Instructions
