Life Adventures in Indiana


Chicago, IL vs. Moline, IL

Chicago, IL vs. Moline, IL Which would you pick? You might be surprised by my answer but first let me give you some background information.The Husband is spectacular at planning for birthdays, etc.  I really am quite jealous of his planning skills and wish I could be as good as him.  Shhhh...don't tell him I said that....more
I live so close, but rarely go. Chicago is my kind of town :)more

Marriage & Date Nights

Lately the Husband and I have been so busy with organizing things at the house, both of our jobs and my exercise classes that it didn't seem like we were having quality time together.  Sure we watch TV, eat dinner and run errands together but we weren't taking the time to go have fun together.  I am not saying we don't have fun together or that there are any issues, just that we needed to focus on one another more.  Does that make sense? ...more
Make some time to spend with your sweetie!

Glaucoma at 30???

Recently I have been trying to be more healthy.  I HATE being overweight.  Oh who am I kidding???  I hate being FAT.  This is not the person I have always been and I do not want to be this person anymore.  So I put a plan together.1. Start working out 2. Quit smoking3. Start eating healthierAlong with this plan is taking care of myself, doctor check ups and trying to de-stress more.  ...more

My Bucket List

What is a bucket list?  Many people mention they can cross that trip, item, ect. off their bucket list but do they really have one written down or typed up.  I am one of those individuals that will say, oh I can cross that off of my bucket list or add that to my bucket list but I don't really have one written down (or in this case typed) anywhere.....more

Don't Wanna Be An American Idiot... what do you think this blog is about?  If you are a Green Day fan then you might have figured it out.  If you are not then you probably think this blog is about something totally different then what it is really about.Drum roll please (literally)........more

The Husband Vs. My Purses

So the Husband has this thing about telling me I have to many purses.  How could a woman possibly have to many purses?  This is just not possible! He jokes about me getting rid of some of them but I will never part with them, NEVER, do you hear me?...more
@elaineR.N. He is a great guy.  We just like to give each other a hard time. :-)more

Date Night With The Husband

I really do have a husband...although he has only been referenced in my blogs lately and they have not focused on the things that we have done together.  I guess Life Adventures in Indiana has mainly been focused on my adventures as of late and not our adventures. However, in my defense he has been working a lot of overtime, so we have been like two ships passing in the night.  Like I how I passed the blame on to the Husband? ...more
I want more excuses to get dressed up and go out to a fine dinner. It's always worth every bite! ...more

Booty Camp Kicked My Booty!

Whose idea was it to lose weight and get in shape?  Surely it was not me who wanted to put myself through this torture.  Can I blame it on my BFF or the Husband?  Or does the blame solely lie with me? I could blame it on that Stripper 101 class in Las Vegas, which was my BFF's idea.  After that class we felt invigorated; we thought to ourselves we've got this and we will partner up to lose weight together.  Dancing on a pole is fun and whew, what a workout! ...more
@Darcie - It is fun!  However, sometimes my lack of coordination gets in the way.  ;)more

Don't Judge Me

Okay, so I am overweight.  This is not why I am asking you not to judge me.  While my friend and I were in Vegas we decided that we were going to commit to starting to work out together.  We would be workout buddies.  ...more
It would kick my butt too!more

What Happens In Vegas Stays In Vegas

So I mentioned in a prior post that my husband surprised me with a trip to Las Vegas to celebrate my dirty thirty.  ...more
