current music obsession.

I stumbled upon Ms. Zee Avi and have fallen in love with her jazzy sound.

Bitter Heart

Happy Friday!!!  We have a birthday celebration this evening and Ryan's father is visiting.  So it should be a pretty entertaining weekend.  xx   

mud run, ninja style.

I participated in the Survivor Mud Run last Saturday with my girl, Gina.  It was our first mud run and definitely won’t be our last.  We had a blast!!  A hellish 5k run in the blazing sun with tons of challenging obstacles - mud pits, woven webs, legs of rubber, hurdles, cargo climb, dooms day hills, survivor slide,  monkey bars (which we had a difficult time doing with our mud-covered hands), a chocolate river (my favorite), log jams and more mud pits at the end.  We survived it… and with our ninja swords still in hand.  Turtle power!!! 

Sooooo much fun!!!

Ahhhh, the mud ate my nail polish.  Hardcore, yo!

In line for the showers...

they really are giants.

Last week we sat courtside at the Kings v. Suns game.  The seats were amazing.  To be that close to the players was truly an experience.  Having our own waitress and private lounge wasn't horrible either.  We were totally spoiled!! 

My favorite moment was Marcin Gortat falling on us and our drinks spilling all over the place.  It was wonderful.  hehee.  Oh and the text messages from family and friends, when they caught a glimpse of us on TV, were hilarious!

Big thanks to my boss for giving us his tickets.  Unforgettable game!
