“Be Fit and Pain Free in 2011” event

Last Saturday, I attended the “Be Fit and Pain Free in 2011” event hosted by Kathy Kaehler and sponsored by Salonpas Pain Relief Patches.  SALONPAS is a pain patch with NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug) medication you can put on your body for relief. So instead of taking an aspirin or ibuprofen, you can just put a […]

Racing Thoughts

A few weeks ago, I cleaned out a ton of boxes in the garage. I’m trying to sort everything out, clean house and make a dent in organizing all the stuff I’ve kept all these years. I kept my bib from my first half marathon race in Las Vegas. Ever since I found it, I […]

The hike that wasn’t

Today had so much potential. We had plans to go hiking, stopped by the farmers market afterwards and maybe grill some fresh corn when we got home. Well, it’s not happening. After being spoiled with mid 70s temperature the last few weeks, the rain surprised us today.   Instead of showing you some pictures from […]

Sweet Potato Protein Pancakes

I am a morning person. I like waking up early and getting a lot of things accomplished before I head out the door for work. There’s nothing like a hot cup of tea or coffee and a tasty breakfast plate that gets me excited to start my day. I had a great start to my […]

That’s Amore

600 miles and 24 hours later, I am home sweet home. I don’t know when I’ve felt more tired, driving solo for 4 hours or the morning after a long race? 4 hours is the longest time I have ever been driven straight and I did it twice in the last 24 hours.  I did the […]

Road Trip

We have arrived at our road trip destination. Viva Las Vegas!! I am the designated driver for this trip so no pictures during the drive, but I did take a snapshot during a quick stop. Pretty much from L.A. to Las Vegas, it is 5 hours of driving with this scenery. Mountains and deserts. Last […]

Banana Blueberry Muffins

The week has just started but I feel like I’m getting ready for the weekend again. I have the next 2 days off from work to go on a fun road trip 🙂 Well, it will be fun once we get to our destination. During my gym session this morning, I actually noticed the improvement […]

Something Blue

This weekend we attended my friend Alicia’s wedding, you might remember her bridal shower a few weeks ago.  We had fun seeing old friends and catching up with them. Here are the highlights from the wedding, which had a blue theme (the bride’s favorite color).   We ate a ten course meal, which was way too […]

Evening Relaxation

Hi everyone….Greetings from Califonia Adventure Park.   I am really looking forward to starting off my weekend. It has been a busy week. I was busy with work, busy with running errands, busy being on the phone and emailing wedding vendors. This week, I just kept going and going and next thing I knew, it […]

A Dozen Pictures & Cookies

My cousin got married recently and the whole family was in attendance. To avoid being interrupted during the open bar, I let my niece use my camera so that she wouldn’t tug at my dress every minute begging to play with my toy. This week, I was playing with my camera and planned to empty […]
