We’re here! We arrived in Baltimore today, a few days ahead of Fitbloggin — sort of a combo birthday/anniversary trip (his birthday was February 22nd, mine March 17th and our wedding anniversary is April 8). The weather is go-hor-hor-hor-hor-geous! It’s actually warmer here than in Orlando! We love to travel, so the first thing we [...]
A while back, I declared a trip to M&M world, Pizza Fusion, Whole Foods, Fresh Market and Total Wine to be “His ‘n’ Hers Dream Day.” Well, folks — we took a very different, very successful crack at the title today. Of course, it didn’t hurt that my mood was brightened on Friday. Lucas had [...]
Doesn’t technology blow? Ugh…I was working on my laptop yesterday, getting some work done so I could relax on Christmas Day when POOF! The MacBook stopped working!

We had a blast today, and we’re enjoying one last local brew (me: Shipyard Pumpkinhead, him : Shipyard Old Thumper) before boarding our plane and heading home.
… Not a bad life, huh?
(Note: I started to call this post “Smack My Sweet A$$” but I just didn’t have the guts! When you read on, you’ll get the joke.) Thank you for all your nice tweets and comments about my triathlon post! Before I started training and competing for the sport, I didn’t know anything about it — [...]
Here’s how my day started: an email from Lucas, with a subject that says something like “Plllllleeeeeeeaaaaassssse?” That’s never a good sign. Electronic whining. If it were something simple, he’d call. But no. He dropped a puppy bomb over email. Here’s the back story. We have two amazing dogs and two fat cats. They’re all [...]
