Just For Fun–Help Me Plan My Totally Awesome Vegas Vacation!

Vegas, baby!  That is where I am heading early Sunday morning with my mom and a very good friend.  We are jumping into my version of the family truckster (my twelve year old Prius) and zooming (okay, fighting for each mile) through the Rocky Mountains on a twelve hour journey to “The City of Lights”, or “The City that Never Sleeps”, or “The City that Makes You Really, Really Fat”–whatever most people call it these days.  I honestly don’t even care what nickname it has–I’m just going to call it “The City that Isn’t Here” and be happy with that!…

Just For Fun–I Made a Blogging Award

Greetings and Salutations to you all! I have been having too much fun with this blogging business with all the different ways my brain is functioning trying to figure out how to be “successful” and getting to know some of my fellow bloggers. Every once in a while I see someone write about being nominated for this award or that award and I find those posts to be very fun and informative.  I find myself hoping to get nominated because I love talking about myself so much.  It feels strange to say that, but would I even be blogging if…

Just For Fun- Tell Me Your Favorite Place to Drive for a Long Weekend

Hello my friends! I am currently on a lovely four day road trip with my family to Mesa Verde National Park and having an absolutely amazing time!  As I am sitting here for a few minutes I thought it would be fun to get some feedback on some of your favorite road trips.  Since I am only away from home for four days, I am going to limit the question to road trips that take four or less days from where you live.  I will fritter this information away and keep all of the suggestions in the back of my mind…

Just For Fun- Sunshine Blogger Award

Thanks to Catherine from Atypical 60 for nominating me for The Sunshine Blogger Award!  I really appreciate being nominated. When I am done asking these questions that were posed to me, I will ask some questions of other bloggers! Then they can decide whether or not to keep the love moving forward. Have fun! What’s your Favorite movie? Why? Well, I actually rotate my top 3 movies many times during the year.  Depends on what kind of mood I’m in when someone asks me!  I would love to say that I go for the artsy-fartsy movies that make me look…

Just For Fun–I Can’t Resist the Temptation

Hello my friends, I am having a lot of fun sharing my latest post with you (read it here) and it got my brain churning.  After a week or so of somber writing and questioning serious things I decided I just wanted to have a little fun today.  I wanted to pose a question to everyone out there: What food or drink item can you not resist, even if you’re extremely full or on a diet? I could probably list 15 different foods, from all food genres, but I have to say that I will always eat a piece of…

Just For Fun- A Smorgasbord of Yours Truly

Happy Monday everybody!  It’s a new day, a new week and a new chance to do all kinds of awesome things!  I am very tired from an extremely busy weekend, so I am sorry that my responses to these award nominations are so late.  I managed to finish the Warrior Dash on Saturday, but my arms are essentially jelly, so my answers will be short and sweet (at least for me).  I have also condensed all of the award questions into one blog so there was a lot of cutting and pasting going on.  Please forgive any mistakes.  As I have…

Am I Really Getting off the Couch for This?

Tomorrow is the big day, everybody.  Wish me luck!  Thought I would repost, even though it’s not so terribly old… I get it!  I get it.  You want me to work out.  And by “you” I mean every person that has been sending emails, facebook advertisements, Groupon and livingsocial deals inviting me to run, play, jump and climb on various types of courses and equipment.  And you found your target audience– yay you!  The only way you’re going to get me to join any exercising event is by adding tons of toys and costumes that deflect from the fact that…

Are You Ready for the Summer?

One way or another I was going to get to camp.  Not the kind of camp that your mom and dad drop you off in the morning and then pick you up on the way back from work, but the real kind of camp—bunk beds, bonfires, and hanging out by the lake. I was convinced that I would have a way more awesome experience than Haley Mills had in The Parent Trap.  Kristy McNichol and Tatum O’Neal wasted all of their fun camp time chasing boys in Little Darlings and I definitely wasn’t going to do that.  I knew that…
