Strange But Good Travel

I can't travel like a normal person. At least I wear shoes... The creepiest part was that when I said something to the flight attendant she said it happens all the time.  Apparently parents even let their kids go to the bathroom barefoot!  I have a friend that is a flight attendant and SHE … [Read More...]

5 Standing Desk Benefits

Stand Up Desk + WIAW

Do you realize how much you sit? It makes my hips hurt! I've gone through a lot of "hacks" to have standing desks.  At one job I stacked up Girl Scout cookie boxes to set my laptop on.  When I'm at home working, I use the condo gym to build a treadmill desk.   I can't stand to sit still. … [Read More...]

Competition Prep 10 Weeks Out + WIAW

I'm on the wagon. Seriously. 9 days sober. It's finally time to get back on the stage.  I took a year off from competing to grow and it paid off well.  I put on about 15 pounds (20 at my highest)... and a decent amount of that is muscle.  Looking back at pictures from a couple of years ago, I … [Read More...]

Leaving Las Vegas (for now)

I've never been so sad to leave a place. But I'm not leaving for good, Sheryl Crow! http://youtu.be/Xkc-en0_LGY In an uncharacteristically impulsive move, when I flew back to from Tahoe with Vegas after we got married I decided not to take my next flight to Atlanta.  This was completely … [Read More...]

The Plague + Healthy French Toast [Recipe]

I love Vegas in sickness and in health. Just didn't think we'd have to prove it so soon. Today's strange but good is a quickie because we've both been hit by the plague.  I don't know if it's the flu or the worst cold ever, but we are miserable. Yesterday my eye swelled up and started … [Read More...]

The One Where I Married Vegas

I got married.  To Vegas. Not to be confused with getting married IN Vegas. I'm the poster child for never say never.  I swore I'd never get married.  I didn't even want to date.  I was perfectly happy working, working out, and signing up for whatever adventure I could find. Well.  Vegas … [Read More...]
