Spark Friends - you need to hold me accountable!
I am not a morning person. Never have been. It's just not in my genetic makeup. Although, if you talked to my parents, they would shake their heads in disbelief that "their" daughter could sleep until noon or later (if they would let her!). ... Read more

Disappointing fair food
Went to the fair today. Planned to have something totally unhealthy, but tasty! One day isn't going to kill me or pack on the pounds. I went looking for fried Oreos. Or fried Twinkies. Or a fried candy bar! I did draw the line at fried but... Read more
Live like you're dying? Really?
After I finished my workout and my iPod finished playing the play list (I don't have it on repeat), I heard the song "Live Like You're Dying." At least I think that was the name of the song. Sorry, don't know who sang it. The main theme of th... Read more
