Keeping Things in Perspective (& Chance to Win Some Sneakers!)

July 8, 2012 at 12:43 pm

I woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning. I was cranky and did not want to go to my kick-butt yoga sculpt class. I just wanted to stay in bed. I have been burning the candle at both ends and have been over committed – as usual. I think that the 4th of July and consecutive 100 plus degree days and…

Friday Finds: Feeling Old, Wanderlust and Travel Finds

July 6, 2012 at 5:44 am

It came as a great shock to me that kids born in 1995 graduated from high school this year (and that you can drink alcohol if you were born before this date in 1991!) I finished GRADUATE school in 1995, so I was feeling very old upon hearing that news. Then I saw this post on buzzfeed: “48 Things That Will Make You Feel Old“.…

Olympics and Other Obsessions

July 3, 2012 at 7:34 am

It’s July… and that means – THE OLYMPICS! I LOVE the Olympics. I would love to watch them all day long, but will have to settle for obsessively following twitter and FB and reading the news all day long once they start on July 25th. I have been enjoying lots of awesome articles on Olympians – especially female athletes in all of my magazines and…

Friday Finds: Another Cool Fitness App, Yay for CTA, Links I Like and More!

June 29, 2012 at 7:40 am

Is it wrong that I am so happy that Ann Curry will no longer be a co-host on the Today Show? Probably. I am tempted to write a letter saying “I told you so!” But, she gets $10M to leave so maybe the joke is on me. You win, Ann Curry! (Sorry… back to my regularly scheduled “Friday Finds” blog post.) So… I have mentioned…

Links I Like (Deluxe Version), a Few Deals and 2 Give Aways!

June 26, 2012 at 7:27 am

Every week, I collect links I like and save them in a draft e-mail to myself (if you are wondering “how does she do this?” No, oh well, the husband can tell you that I always over-share!) This week, I wound up with a ton of links I like, so this post is dedicated to “links I like” by category. What’s eating you? Food links:…

Friday Finds – Ideas for Active Travelers, Deals, Chicago Finds and Links I Like

June 22, 2012 at 7:26 am

I love to travel for running events and… well… just in general. This week I found several things for the active traveler. 1. I like to have healthy eating choices wherever I go. I saw this new, free app (web, iphone, blackberry and android) You can use Good Food Near You to find food choices and menu nutrition information for twenty restaurants near you. Check…

“Finding” Successes and Busts, Some Deals and Links I Like

June 19, 2012 at 7:27 am

My husband recently commented that my blog has made me into an “uber consumer”. (Read: “Honey, aren’t you buying too many things? We seem to have so many little boxes showing up every day. Are you spending all of our money?”) I guess I should not reply “No dear, I have always purchased a ton of things on sale, you just never noticed before.” As…
