It’s been the {Very Special} Birthday of  #TheBestDaughterInTheWorld!…. Mine!!!

 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ASHLEY

Yeaaaaahhh!!!!!

*Throwing Confetti in The Air.  And doing my Happy Dance!!!*

So.  In addition to celebrating, I spent the later part of my weekend relaxing and surfing the ‘net.

One thing I love about surfing is finding something uniquely crazy.

This gadget fits the bill.  Nicely.

Perfect for today’s {Man Day} Monday feature

If you look closely,  you’ll notice that these two are actually walking!  That’s right! You do not see them pedaling!

This clever little ditty is the mastermind of Holland native- Bruin Bergmeester.

You see, it seems that he spends a good deal of his day sitting.  And when he’s not, he’s home on the treadmill.  As the story goes,

“One day it was lovely outside and Bruin did not fancy spending time on a bicycle, which meant sitting again, so he thought to himself: “Why not bring the treadmill outdoors?”

And this is what he came up with… he calls if the Lopifit.

He describes it as ‘not an electric bike, it’s not a scooter, it’s not a treadmill’

So what is it!  Why it’s all three.  Of Course.

Okay.  Now you know you want to be the first one of your friends have one.  Admit it.

This is too clever for me.  Sign me up.  I want one!

The only question is  ‘Where can I order one of these?’.

Spoiler Alert!

… it’s only a prototype … *bummer*   *big bummer*

I’ll keep my eye on this one.  When it comes to market, you’ll be the first ones to know!

What unique craziness is going on in your life?

How’d you do with your ‘Yearly Inspirations’ for 2014?

When I go over my list of ‘high inspirations’, I didn’t do so well.

 But that’s one of the reasons that I soooo long forward to a New Year….

 See.  I see it as a fresh set of 365 days to fulfill my ‘Inspirations’!

I’m Thinking Something with a Tortilla Chip…

Good Tuesday! Luv-lies,

I’m sure that, with The Fourth of July being a couple of days away,  your weekly ‘To-do’ list is as jammed packed as mine.  I haven’t quite figured out what’s on the menu.  Frankly, it’s past the point of worrying about the menu.  It’s times like this that I am sooooooooo  glad for the blogosphere! 🙂

I’m thinking simple.  Simple ingredients.  Simple in preparation time.   But not simple in flavor.

Maybe some type of  ‘taco inspired’ dish

Maybe one of these …

My first #RuleOfFood is … You should always have a ‘Great Go-To Salad’

This one’s made my list

… and to all ‘A Happy New Year’

Happy New Year 2014

Hello Luv-lies,

Happy New Year to you all!

I’m sitting here watching the ‘ball’ drop on this annual  New York City Event.  Watching the mess of confetti that is raining down on the elated  faces that have waited for hours for an opportunity to party celebrate the beginning of a New Year.

The New Year seems to bring about a renewed hope for all of those things that we didn’t and/or couldn’t conquer in the twelve months preceding it.  A New Year seems to inspire us to make good on those promises from before, and/or make a new set of goals/aspirations/dreams and promises.

Although I’ve long given up ‘resolutions’ and haves replaced them with ‘Yearly Inspirations’ and ‘Reflections on the Year gone by’, I can’t help but to get caught up the madness going on in New York’s Time Square.

Somewhere between the commercials and the celebration I’ve come up with my list of this year’s inspirations.

So without further ado, for the 2014 year I am inspired to do the following things …. {in no particular order of significance}

Blog at least three times a week – I enjoy meeting you here in this space (it’s like my virtual coffee shoppe) and after all, I started this blog to keep me accountable…. right?

~ Cook one amazing home made meal a month – this might not seem like a big deal, but take it from someone (that would be me) who has found true excitement in the kitchen – it’s a biiiiiig deal!

~ Reach Weight Watcher’s Lifetime Member Status -Let’s just say that ‘lifetime membership has its bennies’

~ Attend a few non-credit college ‘Learning for Leisure’ courses – right now courses in culinary arts, technology and language are on my list.

~ Races! Races! Races! – the list includes completing at least three each: 5K Races, 10K Races and one half marathon…. I’m taking all suggestions – be kind

~ Do Volunteer work – this has been on my bucket list for a while… now it’s time to put up (shutting up is not an option)

~ Attend at least one Blog Conference – depending upon the location, these can be quite pricey…. but you can’t put a price on the ‘friendships’ that you make in the blogosphere

~ Continue to workout at least five times a week – in addition to eating a helluva lot healthier, this workout routine has brought me great weight loss success and peace of mind!

~ Master this WordPress Blog Platform – full disclosure here…. right now, I am not totally satisfied with my blog… I have to devote more time in making it more user-friendly (amongst other things)….

~ Start a Garden – this is going to be interested… I don’t have much of a green thumb but I’m hell-bent on eating fresh veggies.  So my ‘me logic’ says – ‘want fresh veggies? why not grow them’?  ‘BOOM’ … makes sense to me

This is just a short list of the things that are Inspiring Me.  I’m certain that as the year rolls-out, the list will grow.  And so will the excitement of checking off my yearly inspirational accomplishments….
