And We’re Off!!

on June 8, 2012

Morning!!!   I really can’t believe this day is finally here!   Ahhhh, vacation is a beautiful thing!   This break is something that I have been looking forward to for a long time now.  I don’t want to say that I need a break from life, because you just can’t do that, but I do feel like I need a break.  Ever just feel like you want to take a step back, examine your surroundings, see what is true and see what isn’t.  Check your motive and also check your attitude.


Yesterday was just a blur for me.  I tell ya, I don’t even remember waiting on customers.  🙂


Thursdays Breakfast:


My blender at home is fried, so I took my ingredients to work with me and once things settled down I made the following:

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup of frozen cherries
  • 1 tbsp of chia seeds
  • 1 square of 85% dark chocolate
  • 1 cup of almond milk
  • 2 scoops of Visalus

Holy cow this was good!


I also enjoyed a nice cup of joe 🙂



Thursday’s lunch:


  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 cup of frozen blueberries
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 2 scoops of Visalus


After work, I was anxious to get home and finish packing my suit cases.  Jason and Lynn and of course the kiddo’s were coming by to see my parents who have come home while I am away.  I also had a friend of mine stop by on her way to get some grub to bring me some long-sleeved shirts to take on the trip.  Isn’t she awesome!  My nephew and her son Calvin had the best time!



Aren’t they adorable!


We are all super excited about the trip!!



This is a tree that we all thought for dead that actually looks like a Cross.  Pretty cool huh?  🙂



Life is so hard sometimes.  😉




Well, I did something that I haven’t done in a long time.  I ran.  I got on the treadmill and took off!  I had forgotten how much I really like running.  🙂

Did anyone else watch Rock Center with Brian Williams???   Oscar Pistorius from South Africa was on one of the segments and it was really cool to watch.  He is a sprinter and hopes to make the Olympic team and go to London.  Here’s the catch.  He was born without the lower part of his legs.  It was a very inspirational story of how you shouldn’t let anything hold you back or make you feel any different, other than the way you are.


Well, you guys have an awesome day!!  The hotels that we are staying at and our final destination in Custer has wifi!!  Yay!!
