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.


At least my car is getting a good car wash


Instead of showing you some pictures from the hiking trails, I’ll just amused you with beautiful (and edited) pictures of new orchids we got for the house recently.


I love pretty flowers and I love being surrounded by them. I might go a little over budget for the wedding flowers, but that’s ok…because they are worth it.

I hope the beauty of these flowers last until next weekend, I’m hosting a special party next week.

Saturday Rewind

Yesterday I attended an exciting event with other bloggers.

We all attended the “Be Fit and Pain Free in 2011” event hosted by Kathy Kaehler and sponsored by Salonpas Pain Relief Patches


Remember the giveaway I hosted earlier this month? I finally had the pleasure of meeting one of my blog reader, Annette. She won the giveaway and came as my guest to the event.

This is one of the reasons why blogging is a lot of fun, I get to meet like-minded women who share my passion in healthy living.

Full recap of the event is coming soon.

Hope you are having a fun weekend. I’m determined to be productive today, even with the rain interference. I’m off to do Plan B.


  1. It was so good to see you yesterday! I’m glad I made it!

    The orchids are so pretty. We had them at our wedding and they made me so so happy.

  2. I was so shocked to wake up to rain this morning! I guess we can’t complain since our weather has been amazing lately compared to the rest of the country. Have a great Sunday!

  3. The orchids are SO gorgeous! And glad you had fun at the event!! I can’t wait to hear more about it.

  4. I love orchids. I think it’s crazy how they can grow with so little soil.

  5. I saw Maryann posted about the event yesterday, she did a nice recap on it and I saw your pretty face in the pics! How fun!

    The orchids are beautiful, I love pretty flowers, I think I will go over budget with my reception flowers but oh well ; ) u only get married once ! Have a great night girl! xoxo

  6. Awe that looks like so much fun, I’m certainly jealous. Sorry about the rain, I would love it it rained here…sadly all we are getting is snow booo.

  7. This weather has definitely spoiled me too- I didn’t even check the forecast and decided to walk to the grocery store, and it rained on me!

  8. i love the orchids! so beautiful…

    sounds like a fun time at the salonpas event. can’t wait to read all about it.
