Why is Turning 40 So Difficult?

Let's be honest -- I spent the past year dreading last month. Yes, a full 365 days of dreading January 2016. Possibly even longer if I think about it. Just the thought of January 2016 made me cringe. Why? Because it was the month I was going to turn 40. Ugh!...more

Beach Yoga Is a Great Way to Exercise When On Vacation

When I think of vacation, I think of being in a warm place and on the beach. I can think of very few things I find more enjoyable or relaxing than starting my day out on the beach. Watching the sun rise and sparkle on the ocean waters, and feeling the cool breeze as the sand squishes between my toes is complete perfection. I can honestly spend majority of my vacation days sitting on the beach reading, soaking up the sun, and doing nothing at all.  Well, not quite nothing…...more

Fenway - A Boston Must-See

There are many historic sites in Boston that should be seen by visitors; sites that play a huge role in our countries history. There is Paul Revere's home, the site of the Boston Massacre, the harbor where tea went flying into the water below, and the home of major league baseball's oldest stadium.Yes I know that for many of you, myself included, a baseball stadium does not equate to a must-see attraction; however, Fenway Park is one baseball stadium everyone should take the time to see and here's why:...more

Take Shelter and Watch out for Flying Women on Broomsticks!!!!

I AM NOT MUCH OF SHOPPER AND I DON'T PLAN ON GOING AGAIN ANYTIME SOON!You could probably define my shopping patterns to one of a love-hate relationship. I LOVE to get new things; clothes, gifts, SHOES, and things for my home. However, I HATE the actual act of walking around the mall, searching for the unknown. I do almost all of my shopping online, and if I do go to an actual store it is because I know exactly what I want, and I am going to run into the store, pick it up, and run right back out.What can I say? It's just not my thing....more

Personal Space Please

What the heck is wrong with some people?I realize this is a bit of a broad question. A question, that if you are like me, elicits a giant list. A list that continually grows. And, unlike my other lists (to-do lists and such), nothing ever gets checked off or scratched off. Instead, it just grows, festers, and becomes this utterly annoying list that serves no purpose. Sound familiar?For now, just to stay on point, let's ignore that disaster and instead talk about my number one annoyance. The one thing that made me ask that ambiguous question in the first place....more

Attack of the Flying Rats

I went to the park the other day to eat my lunch. Even though it was a beautiful day, I wasn't really in the mood to eat outside. It was just that one of my favorite things about traveling with my husband on his business trips, is eating alone. Not! I hate it with a passion and avoid it at all costs. I'd rather go to a movie alone (which is another item on my will not do list) than sit alone in a restaurant....more

Don't Wear Glitter Wear

Rushing through the airport, wishing I had left my house 3o minutes earlier; I quickly remove my shoes, place all my personal items on the conveyor belt and step into the body scan. Standing still waiting for the machines to do their magic, I was expecting for the guard to say "go ahead." Instead, I see my husband look back at the monitor and say "What the heck are you wearing?"...more
