Its December... WOW!

I can't believe its December already!! I have one week of school left, well one final the next week but I don't really count that!
It was so good to have a couple days off and enjoy my great family in San Diego, and great friends too (Becky and Tom) I am so glad you made it this year! The weather was great, the shopping was crazy as always and the food beyond delicious. I love Thanksgiving and being with all the people I love!
It was also Padgett's birthday so Bland and I made a scavenger hunt for her to find a present! We were pretty proud of ourselves of how well it worked! Our clues were all on post- it notes!
Bland was wearing the first clue and I had the second clue!

Tada... she successfully completed her task and found her gift!

Then for some good old paddle boarding... it was so peaceful... and not cold at all in fact we both were sweating in our wet suits! At the end of November to be out on the ocean it was so nice and makes me wonder why I don't live in California!

My headstand! Both Padgett and I managed to do them but never caught on film at the same time... and not too long after that we were lucky enough to be graced with the presence of one maybe two dolphins, they were so close!! It was the perfect day to be out on the ocean!!

Now to finish this semester strong and everyone cross your fingers that I get my second internship at Verizon Wireless in there Heath and Wellness Department, it is very competitive and I feel like my interview went really well but she also had many more people to interview! Yikes... so cross your fingers for me!

I finally got the sock bun to work, I guess third time is a charm!
Thanks P for finding an easier way!
Easy, well I am glad you talked me through it, tutorial @

It has been quite the semester so far, although after Thursday half way over and I am pretty sure the end of the semester always goes by faster! More updates to come I just mainly had to show my hair... thanks P!

Surgeon General's Report

Learning more and more about this I realize how important all of these activities are, and I saw this picture thought it was cute and accurate (for now at least). The fitness industry changes so fast that I am sure there will be updates to this in no time! But for now everybody out there follow these easy guidelines! So get out and do something fun. And don't forget your weight training because it is SO important for your ADL's (activities of daily living)! If you need any recommendations I have plenty now!

Food Pyramid

Everyone knows the food pyramid exists ... here is our original old fashion Pyramid!Here is the new one they came up with not too long ago because people were saying that the original was confusing. And it added the physical activity component, which seemed good but still confusing for people!

So today a NEW pyramid was unveiled on CNN! This food pyramid has been dismantled in favor of a simple plate icon that urges Americans to eat a more plant-based diet.

I think it has some good things...
Good for visual people.
Good actual visualization about what we should actual be eating!
Backed by Michelle Obama (you know that is going to help)!
But I also see some concerns!
What if people don't eat off a plate every meal?
Unless you go to the website you don't really get actual portions.
And what plate size are they basing this off of?

What do you think?!

Goodbye MAY

Here we are at the end of my favorite month...
But the rest of it has been fantastic!
My birthday was great... spent a long weekend in NYC with the family and had such a great time.

We went biking along the Hudson River.
Birthday Girls! Yes we have the same birthday and its GREAT! May 14th!
And the highlight of the weekend was my birthday present that I received from my dearest sister Padgett! If you haven't seen the Sex and the City episode where Carrie goes trapezing, you should! And that is what we got to do! It took me a long time to understand the surprise but once I did it might be the greatest present yet! So Padgett, Bland, Abby, Ali and I all met on top of this building and for the next 2 and a half hours we got to fly!
All the "Fliers"!

Me doing "The Catch"
I have wanted to go to Serendipity for SO LONG and we finally made it happen... and the wait was totally worth it!
Frozen Hot Chocolate.... yes it really is worth going there just to get that!!

On another totally random side note, my neighborhood has been full of crazy wildlife this past week. On Saturday Shane went out for a run and ended up running with a moose. The moose ended up downtown and captured later on in the day. The little yearling made the news!
Then today the parking lot of my building became a home for a couple of hours to a GIANT swarm of bees. The beekeeper had to come rescue them and everything!

Everyone that actually saw them flying around said that this clump did not do justice to actually how many bees there actually were!Beekeeper taking them away!
The newest addition to my patio, Bougainvillea! Shane's birthday present to me... I LOVE IT!

My favorite show is BACK!!
Also for Memorial Day weekend, Padgett, Sam and Tucker (Sam's adorable dog) came to stay with me for the weekend. We at least had one good weather day and took full advantage, went for a fantastic "hike" down City Creek along the flood waters and spent some time in the hot tub and pool. Always fun to have house guests and I am glad I now have a room to offer! So that was a great way to end the last weekend of May.

And last but not least I have to retire my Wyoming license plates today... I cannot tell you how sad this makes me! So good bye, I will so miss being a county 22 plate!!

Now back to the grind of summer semester, the good news is I do have the most fantastic pool and the sun should now be shining bright!
