Recent Celebrations

Last week was a blast! On Wednesday I took the day off work and went to Disneyland with my wonderful friend Kelly. Here are some pictures of the fun we had at the "happiest place on earth!"
Waiting for the tram to take us to the park. We were very excited!
Enjoying a margarita in California Adventure
To infinity, and beyond!!

Then on Friday we visited Jena's new, adorable, apartment.

And celebrated Lani's birthday at a wine bar in Pasadena
So much fun!!

So far I've been good about some goals, but not others. I've been avidly reading my bible nightly and exercising more (wii fit and going to the gym). My eating habits still need improvement. I really struggle at night, after dinner, with snacking on crap. Last night I decided to take a BOSU total body conditioning class... it was the hardest class I've ever taken in my life! I'm not usually a quitter, but I only lasted 15 minutes in that class. For those of who aren't familiar with the BOSU ball, its that half balance ball with a flat underside, seen here. The class consisted of step exercises, jumping on the ball, balancing etc. The balancing I could handle, but the constant stepping, kicking, and jumping scared the crap out of me. If you're not perfectly balanced on that ball, you're going down! After coming off an ankle injury over a year ago, I was afraid I would roll my ankle and fall flat on my face, lol. With shaky thighs, I didn't think my balance would last much longer and a new injury would not be fun. So, I hung my head in shame and booked it out of the room as fast as I could!


  1. I've been to Disney World, but never Disney Land... I'm jealous... I need to go there now. :)

  2. Here we are in sweaters and thick scarves and you and your friends in short sleeves. Isn't the world a funny place! lol Looks like you all had great fun.

  3. By those smiles, you guys look like you had so much fun! And I would've hightailed it out of that class myself. That ball jumping business looks like a flattened nose waiting to happen. Kudos to you for making it 15 minutes!
