Sunday was a pretty good day. Even though I discovered that there are no coupon inserts on holidays (insert really sad face here), I decided to continue our new Sunday ritual. I took both kids, we got 1 paper (instead of 4) for the sale ads al... Read more

I didn't take any pictures, but I've yanked a couple from my instructor, Ashley's photo album. We had 153 people register for the Zumbathon and raised $3,364.80 for the American Cancer Society as part of Relay for Life. Our Relay for Life even... Read more
Zumba. You've heard the talk and I know you're thinking that this is just the next Tae Bo, or let's go back even more - the next Sweatin' to the Oldies (yes, I did that). But let's just lay down the doubt and see what Zumba really is, and what... Read more
