Days 172, 173, & 174: A Wilderness Wonderland Celebration of Lights

Day 172, Day 173, & Day 174.

Once again here in the home stretch I’m stringing Every Days with Chick-fil-A together. Trying to push through to the end, and in this busy season, it has been a challenge. But I have to tell you, even though I have nothing to gain from blogging about eating CFA every day, it’s pretty freaking cool that I’ve been able to do it.

New Year’s is around the corner and if you’re like me, you’ll be making a resolution or two, even if you don’t tell anyone about it. But let’s be honest – we rarely do them more than a couple of months, or, if you’re like me, a couple of weeks.  Changing something in your life – anything – is difficult, even when it’s something fun like eating Chick-fil-a. Factor in the blogging part, and it makes the difficulty factor increase by a factor of 10. So I’m glad I’ve stuck it out, even if I am putting multiple days in one post.

So, on Tuesday, it was Day 172, and I don’t have a picture for it. I know I went in and ordered a #11 with a Chicken Tortilla Soup, tried to take a pic of the server (new gal, forget her name), and my iPhone wouldn’t cooperate.

Day 173 was a Spicy Chicken sandwich meal on the way home from a church business meeting. I was starving, and figured the Spicy would be my best shot at a hearty piece of poultry. And, I was right. Theory still holds true.

Thanks to my fellas in the drive-thru (and Alysa too, who sneaked into the boys club picture):

We wrapped up day 174 at the great Pasco County Wilderness Wonderland
Celebration of Lights, which, I am sorry to say, was a Parks & Recreation episode just waiting to happen.

I give you, Exhibit A:

Exhibit B. Mr and Mrs Claus were very friendly:

Exhibit C (that’s real “snow” in case you were wondering):

And finally, Exhibit D. It was nice to see that a nativity scene representing the Incarnation – you know, what Christmas is all about – was present.

Asher did splendidly through all of this, and after eating his dinner, seemed to want to delay bath time. And I have proof (this has been edited from its original format):


Hilarious. Nothing like seeing a naked 14 month old run around the house trying to avoid whatever it is you want him to do.  Ah, the memories.

Oh yes, and I had a 12-ct Chicken Nuggets this evening after Ash went to bed, with a Peppermint Chocolate Chip Milkshake to top it off. Here’s the boys club – love these guys!

Okay, less than a week until Christmas, and closing in on the end of my Every Day with Chick-fil-A. Hard to believe.
