2nd and 3rd Days of Christmas

Hi Everyone! I’ve been slacking on my 12 Days of Christmas posts but I’ve had a good reason and my reason and this post will all tie together. On the 2nd day of Christmas my true love gave to me…cookies! Christmas cookies are a big part of our family traditions. My mom bakes many varieties in…

1st Day of Christmas

I love the holiday season! I love the lights, decorations, trees, music, food, memories, nostalgic feelings, smells, colors, and time-off from work! Another reason I love this time of year so much is because I was married in December and that always brings fond memories. Since I enjoy it so much, I decided to write…

I Ate Carbs!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I still can’t believe that it has come and gone already and there are only 22 days left until Christmas!  My husband and I happily inherited the tradition of hosting Thanksgiving dinner and have done so for the past few years. I really love having the families come…

Happy Days

Yes, today is Monday and yes, today I’m happy! The past few posts have been kind of heavy so I wanted to write a little lighter today. As I mentioned in Roar, I thought about going back on medication to help me through all the things I’m dealing with and decided that doing so is for…

Lupus Loop 2013

First, I have to thank you for taking the time to read my blogs, especially “Roar”.  That was my most-read blog to date and I’m so flattered because it was probably my most personal. So, thank you! I ran a 5k on October 27th. I’m not a runner. Sometimes I wish I was because I…

Roar

I’ve wanted to write this blog for a couple of weeks but have been wrestling with how to approach this topic and whether or not I should even write it. After much thought and discussion with a trusted individual, I decided to go for it…with a little help from Katy Perry.

Busy Bee

Life has been pretty crazy for me these past few weeks. Fortunately, it’s a productive kind of busy so while, at times, I feel like a chicken without a head at least I know items are being checked of my never-ending “to do” list.

Downingtown Fall Fest 2013

This past Sunday, September 29th, was the Downingtown Fall Fest. This is an annual event presented by Victory Brewing Company. My husband and I have attended the past few years and have had a wonderful time. So many various local vendors come out so we are able to sample food from restaurants and food trucks, as…

So You Think You Can Dance: Season 2

Dance season has arrived! It’s as anticipated as “Pumpkin Spice Everything” season. No, wait. I take that back. Nothing is more anticipated than pumpkin spice everything. I’m taking tap and jazz again this year and if you’re a regular blog reader of mine (if you’re not then you should be 😉 you’ll know that along with…

The Hill

Before I describe my outdoor workout that I promised in my last post called “Killer Kicks”,  I want to talk about the hill. If you follow me on Twitter and/or Instagram (both names are “TheFitDiva”) you may have seen tweets or pictures of it. My previous personal trainer, Edna, originally told me about this crazy hill and if…
