Week 3: Insanity & Shakeology Challenge – PB2 Where Have You Been My Whole Life?

My goals this week are to work out before 8 pm, go to bed before 2 am and get up before 8 am.  Lofty goals, I know.  Even for a self-proclaimed night owl, getting 5-6 hours of sleep each night is starting to wear thin.  Last night, I started my workout at 11:45 pm!!  Even though I'm doing the work-outs, I don't feel I'm giving 100% and the my weight loss results reflect it.  This week I only lost .2 lbs for a total of 2 lbs from the start of the program.  Even though I went into this only … Read More>

Social Fabric University: Food Photography With Sony

When I started my blog over a year ago, I thought it would probably be like many of my other hobbies.  I'd dive in full speed only to putter out after a couple of months.  Fortunately, that didn't happen.  What I've learned is I love to blog.  I enjoy sharing my thoughts, experiences and opinions with all of you. I've also "met" some great people through blogging.  Blogging is more than a hobby, it's become a passion. Like most bloggers, I'm always trying to improve my blogging skills.  One … Read More>


Our Funnies Of The Week

This week has been C-R-A-Z-Y and it's not over yet!  I'm just thankful that we've had some funny moments to laugh about.  When I look back at my funnies for the week, I wonder...what did I laugh about BEFORE I had children?  Then I quickly remember, I laughed at all the crazy things my employees did.  My other children. :) 1) My daughter is ADDICTED to watching Toy Story 3. So much so we've decided it will be the theme of her 3rd birthday party.  It's all she can think about and she's even … Read More>

My Afternoon Pick-Me-Up with International Delight #IcedCoffee

It's been almost one year since I quit my job to become a stay-at-home mom.  I left a fast-paced job as a Director for a super busy, large OB/GYN practice to spend more time with my daughter.  A job that was filled with meetings, initiatives, budgets and percentile scores to a new job that revolves around dishes, laundry and entertaining a 2-year old by letting her scan our groceries in the self checkout (you can see off my shopping experience in my Google+ album).  Now instead of wearing … Read More>
