Insanity Fitness Challenge Weigh-In

Week 5 Insanity & Shakeology Fitness Challenge – This Week Rocked!

Seriously, it did.  And you want to know why?  See that number below?  That number means I lost 1.8 lbs from last week.  That number also means if I don't blow it the rest of the week by eating my weight in potato chips, at my next weigh-in I should slide in right under that 110 mark.  Haha, which reminds me of a guy that my friend Emily and I used to call 110.  Not because he weighed 110 lbs (though he was pretty skinny) but because he bragged about his shoes that cost $110. We had lots … Read More>

Rizzoli and Isles Season 2

Rizzoli and Isles Season 3 Starts June 5th on TNT

I always turn in for season finales.  It doesn’t matter if I’ve missed several episodes of the television show, the season finale always pulls me in and gets me excited for the next season.  There is always that element of surprise, that season ending cliffhanger that has me talking with all my friends. In the Season 2 finale of Rizzoli and Isles, the unthinkable happened.  In an exchange of gunfire, Jane ends up shooting Maura’s father.  Jane and Maura have a strong relationship but can one … Read More>

Sand Pail List

My Sand Pail List

When creating bucket lists were all the rage, I never made one.  Why?  Not because I didn't have a million things I wanted to do before I was too old to do them, more like I didn't want to be reminded of all the things I couldn't do for one reason or another.  I know, cup half empty, right?  Well, I came across this spin off idea of the bucket list in my Better Homes & Garden magazine (BTW, call me old for subscribing, I DON'T CARE, I LOVE IT) called a sand pail list.  Basically instead of … Read More>

Ohio BBQ Beef


We had an odd set-up at my last office.  My practice and a competing OB/GYN practice were on the same floor of our medical plaza.  When patients got off the elevator, they turned right to our office or left to theirs.  There were many confused patients and when I first started, even I was confused!  Our offices shared quite a few things, including the employee break room. The other Practice Director and I tried to organize events so our respective staffs would interact more with each other. … Read More>


New Clip From Disney/Pixar’s BRAVE: Fergus Shares A Legend

Everyone has someone in their family who does it.  They tell the same story over and over with the same passion and animation as the first time.  In my family, it's my husband.  He tends to repeat the same stories over until the entire family can recite them.  In Brave, Fergus gets to wear that distinction.  Check out a new clip from Disney/Pixar's Brave: Fergus Shares A Legend.   BRAVE opens in theaters everywhere on June 22nd!  Make sure to follow Brave on Facebook to keep up with … Read More>


How I Survived One Year

I did it. I survived being a stay-at-home-mom for one year.  ONE YEAR!  You really don't know how much of an accomplishment that is. Or how much it has changed me. When I told friends and family that I was going to stay home with my daughter, there was shock and surprise.  Why?  Because I was the person who worked ungodly hours because I enjoyed it.  I was the one who poured over financial reports at 11 o'clock at night and sent emails much to the dismay of my colleagues.  I was … Read More>
