Holiday Windows! 

One of my all time FAVORITE traditions is going to Union Square with the pups to look at all the cute little animals in the Macy’s windows. Not only can you just look at them, but you can meet them and adopt them into their forever homes. Now, if you are like me and are not looking to adopt you can also donate to the SPCA! Which is what the puppies and I do every year, we donate $10 to every window because those cute little squishy faces are worth it! If I had more money I would love to donate more BUT unfortunately my two littles and college takes up majority of my money. 

If you are interested in checking these festively cute windows out and are not familiar with the San Francisco, the Macy’s Union Square is at 170 O’Farrell St. 94102, San Francisco Ca. We hope this brings you so much joy just like it does for the pups and I.

Inaugural Running Universal 5k Event!

So in the last post I talked about signing my mom and up for the inaugural running Universal event and I have gotten some questions about it. There are a couple different options to chose from: Fan, standard package, VIP package, and play all day.

Fan Package $45:

  • The fan package is for spectators supporting their runners or would like to see all the crazy people running at 6am. If you do sign up for the fan package you will receive: Minion cap, drawstring backpack, guaranteed access to the fan zone at the finish line, complimentary beverages and refreshments at the finish line, along with complimentary general parking.

Standard Package $75:

  • The standard package allows you take part in the 5k. You will receive the Minion Finisher Medal, Minion 5k Bib, Running Universal T-shirt, collectable minion pin, post race beverages and refreshments, custom digital finisher certificate, complimentary general parking, and the opportunity to purchase post race entry to the park at an exclusive price($92 I think).

VIP Package $135:

  • The VIP package includes the standard registration package, exclusive VIP check in, complimentary valet parking, post race VIP breakfast on  Universal City Walk, running universal reusable water bottle, and a one on one meet and greet with minions.

Play All Day Package $169:

  • The play all day package will include either a Standard or VIP race registration, one day general admission theme park ticket at an exclusive running universal price including early park admission.

VIP Play All Day Package $229:

  • Theres not a whole lot of info for this package but I am assuming that it will include everything in the Play All Day Package along with a VIP park admissions ticket, but don’t quote me on that.

Packet pick up will be open May 9 and 10 times will be available closer to the race, while race day is May 11, 2019. The corrals will open at 5am and the actual race start time is 6am, VIP breakfast will begin at 7:30am and race gear will be available after the race which to be honest is my second favorite part the medal being my favorite. I cant wait till race day!

Last Minute Gift Purchases!

I spent way too much money but I think its an exception when it comes to gift giving especially if it’s the one you love. Both presents I purchased are for my mom and I and our crazy adventures we have together. One of the ones is a secret and she has to wait to find out while the other I had to tell her so she could prepare.

The first present, are tickets for the Official Walt Disney Studios Tour D23 Gold Member Exclusive event for Sat. Jan 26, 2019. This will be our second D23 event and the second time we will get to go to the Walt Disney Studios.

The second present is the Inaugural Running Universal 5k event. This is the first non runDisney event my mom and I will participate in, so it will be a bit of a changeup for us. One thing I am excited for is the mischievous Minions will be the theme of the event and who doesn’t love minions?

Decorating the Puppy Kennels!

I love Christmas, especially the decorations! Which is why the pups kennel gets a Christmas makeover! So the ramp that leads from the kennel to the my bed gets lined with colorful lights, the gate gets lined with fairy lights, their thanksgiving blanket is traded for their candy cane striped blanket.

Everything is lit up in their kennel and so festive and Christmassy! Its magical.

Puppy Gift Guide!

I normally buy everything for my littles so when it comes to Christmas I have a hard time finding things for them to open on Christmas day, so here is what I like to buy them for Christmas!

  • A new blanket
  • Treats
  • New toys
  • New bed
  • New leashes
  • Heating pad

What my littles personally love would have to be the heating pad, blanket, and treats of course! The blankets, heating pad, bed, and leashes are more luxury and a want than a need so I find getting these on Christmas is a better fit.
