Have a bucket list. Check it off. Life is short.

I was hanging out with Mom and Dad last week in Scottsdale, Arizona, and Dad had a rather awkward trip down the resort’s water slide. I felt badly that I’d convinced him to give it a try and he’d clearly not had a good time, but at the bottom, he turned to me and said,…

A moment of time in travel

Some moments in my travels, thus far over the past few weeks … I edited all these photos using the Best Camera app, which I talk about a little more here if you want to see some “before” photos. I love that I don’t have to keep up with anything but my iPhone!

Make your own kind of music

What’s a redecorating project without art? The only bad thing about working withΒ  me is that I’m a pain in the ass when it comes to art. I like it to be custom. I don’t want someone to walk in my house and say, “Oh, I have that same print!” or “Oh, you got that…

Healthy eating kickstart

So, I’m on a diet. Not a “real” diet. I say that because it only lasts 3 days. I heard about it on the Today Show and I thought it’d be a great start to this healthy eating concept I’d like to follow. So, I suckered Anil into doing it with me, and I realized…

Meet my newest live-in houseguest

Not even two weeks in, and I’m already in love with P90x. Sounds cheesy, but I feel like Tony Horton shows up once a day to kick my ass for an hour or two, and he’s the cheapest personal trainer I’ve ever had. I was warned that he was annoying, and he is slightly, but…

Charlotte through another’s eyes

Anil is the biggest jetsetter I know. And I totally admire and envy him for it. And when he visited Charlotte for the first time he fell in love with it. “I can’t believe it’s so green!” he kept saying. And it really opened my eyes to all the things that are beautiful about the…

2011: less running, more writing

The obligatory 2010 post: I’m not going to go into a huge play-by-play of the year. You have the archives for that!Β But I will sayΒ I started out the year at Wade’s house, drinking his home brewed beer (yum!) and hanging out in the hot tub. I imagine I mayΒ finish the year the same way ……

It’s Sin City, so why is everyone wearing so many clothes?

So, would you have guessed this photo was taken just last month in Las Vegas – when temperatures were touching 110 degrees? This was one of the coolest (coolest, get it?) things I’ve experienced in Vegas. Anil, Jeff and I went to a bar called Minus5 Ice Lounge, located in Mandalay Bay. Everything inside the…

Which end is up?

I feel too frazzled to blog. So much has happened over the past few weeks that I don’t even know where to begin! So, what I’m going to do today is be lame and tell you what I plan to write about. This will organize and un-frazzle me. = My first triathlon race report. Yep,…

That’s what you get for wakin up in Vegas …

Perhaps it’s better to show, not tell, why I haven’t blogged the past couple of weeks … Jeff and I were in Vegas for a conference for Jeff, and my friend Anil came up for a night. He comes to Vegas often, and when he tried to check into Mandalay Bay, they told him there…
