Had a GREAT workout at ClubSport last night with my friend Marnie.  It’s so cool to be able to workout with her – she purchased a Groupon that ClubSport put out this last week – 14 visits over a 6 week period for only $39!  Such an awesome deal and it’ll be fun to have […]Continue Reading


Well…it depends.  I’ve been on roller coasters I like, roller coasters that terrify me.  I recently road the Desperado at Buffalo Bills Casino in Primm, NV.  Honestly – awful.  Riding it with my niece was cool – but ug…the 225 foot drop was enough for me for a lifetime. Now roller coasters in life are […]Continue Reading


Realizations and reminders. We have them all the time. Tonight I had couple. 1. That I still have to be cautious of my portion sizes. Most times I am but at restaurants it can be easy to slip.

It’s been a busy week!  Driving every day helping my mom finish making her way to the West Coast.  My niece Peyton is with us and it’s been fun. Long days – but fun.  It is safe to say we are all tired – tomorrow we arrive back in Portland and I’m looking forward to […]Continue Reading

ARGH! It’s 3:30 in the morning and I cannot sleep.  Biggest reason – I’m freezing!  Go figure.  I finally put on sweats, turned up the heat and just finished drinking a cup of hot tea.  I’m not anticipating that I’ll get that much sleep tonight.  My flight to Vegas comes early – I was planning […]Continue Reading
