It’s Thursday I can’t believe it is Thursday!  I’ve been telling myself it’s Tuesday all day. That should give you an indication of how far I’m running behind. Ah life I love you but sometime you give me the shakes. Not that I’m stressed, just busy but this is funny!


I thought I would start off by giving everyone an update on my brother who is doing much better! My dad is actually boarding a plane for China today to see him. He was released from the hospital and has even been offering his  translating services at the hospital he was in for hurt English only speaking patients. Awwww…he’s a catch ladies 😉 But it hasn’t all been good news, there have been some set backs,  but for now his condition sounds encouraging. Lots of therapy and being extremely careful with his head for the next six months are ops on the list.Thank you all again so much I can’t begin to express how much all your thoughts and notes and prayers have meant to my family! You are all the best and I love each of you!


Also Massive thank you’s for voting for me and the blog in the Circle of Moms top 25 healthy living blogs! I’m happy to say I made the list and I will be sharing more of that with you as it comes in! :)


I also this week became a Girls Gone Sporty ambassador! What I love about the GGS is the support and community. I know many of you are getting back into a healthy lifestyle and sports and I really feel I am doing that too right now. And I found it incredibly hard not to cry as I read this article. Girls Gone Sporty is about more than just fitness and nutrition. I do love those two topics but I’m also into technology and fashion!

Girls Gone Sporty Ambassador Badge
  • Fitness – the latest fitness trends and workout plans
  • Fashion – the hottest/best fitness-related fashion on the market…and “just for fun” fashion, too!
  • Beauty – tips and tricks for maximizing your beauty, even when you’re active
  • Nutrition – the best ways to fuel your body to support your sporty lifestyle
  • Technology/Gear – staying ahead of the game when gearing up for your next fitness goal
  • Lifestyle – travel, adventure, women’s health, relationships – pretty much everything!
  • Interviews/Profiles – exclusive interviews with some of the most inspiring and fun “sporty” athletes and experts


There are some great women involved in this program who inspire me everyday to push a little harder, dig a little deeper, and sweat a little more! Can you tell I’m excited?!


Lunch today was a Barilla Mezze Penne Micro meal.  Yes it’s been a mircowave meal kind of day but I have to say as far as microwave lunch meals go this was pretty good! :)

My workout today was scheduled for this morning but then life happened. So it’s been pushed back to a 45 minute run with weights once the hubs gets home from work! Can’t wait. I also should mention that is you are a nerd like I am a nerd. The New STAR WARS angry birds game came out today! I haven’t seen my ipad or iphone in hours since my boys have taken them over to play it! I love hearing the squeals of “LOOK he has a light saber” and “R2D22222” from the next room! Too cute! In full disclosure I can’t wait to play it tonight after they go to bed…Angry Birds is an addiction!


Admit it do you play Angry Birds?

LOL oh Angry Birds, so addicting! I haven’t pulled the trigger on the Star Wars version yet, but I will.

I’m so glad your brother is improving, I hope any setbacks are temporary and minor. It must be so hard for you to be across the world from him right now {{{hugs}}}

Congratulations on being voted into the Circle of Moms top healthy living blogs, and your GGS ambassadorship!!

Thanks Lisa for the hugs! It’s been an interesting time, you really start to appreciate having family close by. And the Star wars angry birds is very cool!
