Thinking back......

What was the first concert you went to see?

For me it was New Kids on the Block……. I think I was about 8 or 9 and remember getting ready for it. My Aunt took my cousin and I to see it and it was such a big deal! We even got to put makeup on (I am pretty sure this consisted of blush and lip gloss). The funny part of this is that I went to see them when they were here a few years ago too and I think I was just as excited.



PS I am totally singing along as I type this.....

Weekend Recap (with a little Thursday thrown in)


This last weekend was filled with so many wonderful things! My Mom, Aunt and Grandparents were in town and the weather was amazing.

My weekend started on Thursday night (I get every second Friday off work) so I thought I would start my recap there.

Thursday night was my monthly girls night out and this month we went on a walking ghost tour in Inglewood. I wasn't sure what to expect but our guide was fantastic and she knew a lot of history of the area we were in. It wasn't so much a "ghost discovery" tour as it was more a history walk. It was a neat thing to do and she walked around with us for over 2 hours. For $15/person you can't beat that!

Pre-girls night run along the river

One of the stops on our tour

Friday I went for a much needed massage then we were off to meet my Mom and Aunt for supper at Redwater Grille
Ahhhhhh relaxation
Saturday we got up and ran the Heartbeat Run. It was a great little run that was close to our house. HOWEVER I haven't really done much hill training and I should have known when I registered when they referenced "heartbreak hill" it would exactly that. The race actually started uphill.........
We finished the afternoon off with lunch and drinks on the patio and a trip to the market. After that we headed out to my Uncle's place for a family dinner.

Delicious Beerlini's!

Sunday was spent trying to catch up from the weekend. So nothing too exciting to report or any pictures.

Pause or Rewind

Would you rather have a rewind button in your life  OR have a pause button in your life?


 OR




That’s a tough one…… but I think a pause button. I have definitely done some things in my past that I regret but at the same time wouldn’t change anything as I have learned from my mistakes.  However I would love to be able to just push pause sometimes.  Be able to pause and enjoy a special moment/people a little longer or just pause and catch my breath (maybe even sleep a bit longer....).

What would you do and why?

Starbucks Secret Menu???

I was randomly looking at things on the computer the other day when I cam across this........ 


Am I the only one who hasn't seen this before? Did everyone else know about these additional drinks you can order? As a Starbucks lover I was fairly excited to see this "secret" menu.

I think my first order will be the Chocolate Pumpkin... after all Pumpkin Spice Lattes are out again.....

What one would you try?
