My First Color Run

Competitive Me? I’m not a competitive person. Well, that’s not completely true. I compete with myself to continue to become better at everything I do but I don’t find it fun to compete with other people. Growing up, I enjoyed activities that were basically individual but in a group setting (like dance and martial arts)….

Vegas Baby- Part 5 (The Final Chapter)

Paris All good things must come to an end and I saved Paris for the finale because there were too many good things for it NOT to have its own post. My favorite meals of the trip all came from here so try not to drool as you look through the pictures. 😉

Vegas Baby- Part 4

Wax On/Wax Off One of the first things we did was visit Madame Tussauds in The Venetian. I had seen it on TV and thought it would be really fun to check out…and I was not disappointed! You can click here to learn about the history of Madame Tussaud. I love ghost hunting shows, especially…

Vegas Baby- Part 3

So Much Room For Activities It’s true. Fortunately, we had enough room in our trip to get out and do something other than eat! Tourist Traps Of course we had to do the touristy stuff like the Bellagio fountains and the The Mirage volcano. We got to see both shows on our walk of the strip…

Vegas Baby- Part 2

The Food Was “buffet” the first word that came to your mind?  Before we went, everyone told us about them and said they were good so I felt like we kinda had to try one. I’m not a huge buffet person so this wasn’t something on the top of my “to-do” list while in Vegas. Having…

Vegas Baby- Part 1

The Hotels/Casinos In my last post, Never Give Up, you got to hear about the business/serious side of my first-ever Las Vegas trip. Now you get to hear about the fun side! I’m going to break this trip down into several posts because I don’t want to leave anything out and there are just too…

Never Give Up

For you fellow bloggers out there- you know when you have a blog idea but your thoughts about it just seem jumbled and you’re not really sure how to piece it all together? That’s been me for the past two months. I hate to let so much time go by between posts because I’m stuck…

Back Update

As you know from my last post, Channeling Jane Fonda, I decided to stop weight lifting because of back problems (spasms to be specific). Turns out that my instincts were right. I met with a physical therapist (per doctor’s orders) and he decided that the cause of the spasms is most likely due to my…

Channeling Jane Fonda

First, I just want to say that I’m sitting on my deck, looking at my newly planted flowers, drinking coffee out of my Harry Potter mug (and let’s face it, that’s the only way to drink coffee), listening to the birds chirp, feeling the light breeze, and loving that I am able to spend my…

Punk Rope

On Sunday, April 27th I added a Punk Rope certification to my fitness resume! A social media friend posted about taking a class in New York and I immediately asked, “what is that?” He said it was a really fun fitness class that jumped rope. My interest was piqued so I checked out their website…
