Things I’m Excited About…


Hi and happy Monday, everyone! I thought I’d take the time to share some things that I’m anticipating and excited about right now. It’s great to have things to look forward to and in general, it’s good to be excited about life. Please take a moment to tell me what you’re looking forward to in your life. I’d love to hear!



Cirque du Soleil: Jesse and I are going to see Totem this Wednesday night. It was a late birthday gift to him from me.  We plan to go out to dinner beforehand and making a full evening of it. We try and catch the Cirque du Soleil performances whenever they come through town because they’re always amazing. It always makes me want to change my mind about what I want to be when I grow up. Gotta start training young for those kinda skills though.

Hawaiian honeymoon: I know I’ve already mentioned our belated honeymoon, but it’s coming right up! We leave for Kauai April 25th and will be there for seven nights. Then, we fly to Oahu for the last three nights to visit some of our favorite stomping grounds. A couple things we already have planned are zip lining in Kauai and going on a bike tour in Honolulu or the North Shore. A former colleague of mine (from when I worked at a PR firm) just moved to Honolulu with her husband and opened a bike tour business there. They now have a location in Portland and one in Honolulu. So cool!


Animal Flow: The talented Mike Fitch himself will be here in Portland April 12th and 13th, at Recreate, leading the certification. I’m blessed with great employers who are hosting the certification and also paying for me to do it. It will be hard work, but valuable and fun too. Plus, have you seen Mike Fitch?

September MI trip: Jesse and I just booked a week long trip to Michigan September 24th – October 1st. My dear cousin is getting married on the 27th and I wouldn’t miss it for the world. She was like another sister to me growing up (kissin’ cousins, like our parents said), so missing it is not an option. It will be a beautiful wedding and a lot of fun too.


Leftover meatloaf: I will be sharing the recipe of my classic, go-to meatloaf later this week, so stay tuned. Meanwhile, we’ll be enjoying the leftovers for the next couple of days. As a kid, I detested meatloaf in any way, shape or form, but now I like it, especially the leftovers.

    Cirque du Soleil is great–I’ve seen a few of their shows….and you have a couple of wonderful trips planned this year! Hawaii is on my travel list. Right now I’m excited about my first batch of kombucha (started a couple of days ago) but my big excitement for this year is to improve my guitar playing so that I could possibly play with a band (just for fun) if the opportunity arises.

      Yes, we love going to Cirque du Soleil performances! It’s so incredible. I agree that you need to visit Hawaii at some point. This will be our first time to Kauai, but fourth time to Oahu. We absolutely love Hawaii and would probably move there for a period of time if the opportunity ever came up. It’s a happy place! Cheers to you for making your own kombucha! I used to make my own a long time ago in Michigan, but it was hard to keep up. The scoby multiplies like crazy! I hope the first batch tastes great!

    I really have to chuckle when I see that you like meatloaf. I remember the day clearly when you told me it was just wrong to be eating shaped meatloaf after you saw me make a ringed meatloaf! My, how things can change!!! XOXO

      I know, it’s kind of funny, isn’t it Mom? Although, I’m still not sure I’d make a meatloaf in a jello mold! I’ll stick with the standard loaf. xoxo
