LLRB 365: 2011 Week 20

Well, I have to say the month of May is turning out to be a pretty phenomenal month!  As I write this post, I have a bazillion thoughts running through my head about the conference I just returned from.  Fitbloggin '11 was amazing and will definitely require several of its own posts.  Until then, I leave you with my week in pictures.

I love the color on this tree in my backyard.  Anyone know what kind of tree it is?

Playing Words With Friends.  Where's a dang "e" when you need one?

Final preparations for Fitbloggin included making my first tutu!
(and then trying to fit it in my suitcase - PSA: roll it up)

I spent my first day in Baltimore wandering the Inner Harbor and then visiting the National Aquarium with one of my most favoritest people in the whole world, April.

The first official day of Fitbloggin '11 and it was full of fitness activities.  I finally got to meet and run and Zumba and ... with so many of my girls!

Today's Fitbloggin sessions were all about blogging and social media.  This day deserves its own post, so you get pictures from the most delicious dinner.  If you find yourself in Baltimore, Go to Eat Bertha's Mussels and order the crab cake sandwich (minus the bun) and the seafood pasta salad.  Then go to Pitango Gelato in Fells Point.  April and Kirsten are mine, though.  You can't have them :)

Today was a day of travel and tears (I miss my hookers already!).  I feel incredibly blessed to have won the Fitbloggin ticket from Shrinking Jeans that allowed me to meet IRL all these amazing women and men.  I was truly surrounded by friends.

Many of you may be finding my little corner of the blogosphere for the first time thanks to Fitbloggin. If you are new here, Welcome! If you are an old friend, Welcome back :) I hope to implement some of the coolness that I learned this weekend, so you may see some changes here in the not too distant future.

So, thanks for stopping by.  Feel free to poke around, open my medicine cabinet, check in the cupboards.  I hope you like what you see. 

Until next time, I leave you with a question:  What is your favorite photo subject?


  1. I loved following along with you and all my SJ friends. Thank you for tweeting and posting pics during your time there. I felt as if I was there too! I am so happy you had a fabulous time. XOXO!

  2. I am one of those that are finding your corner of the world via Fitbloggin. And I am glad that I did. It was great meeting you, and hanging with the "sisters."

    I can't wait to sit and read more of you blog and all of the new and exciting stuff to come in the future!


  3. Oh, and my favorite photo subject... My minions... I mean, my boys!

  4. I'm all yours baby! I had with you. Thanks for meeting me in Chicago last June and sleeping with me! It was the start of a beautiful friendship. Love you!

  5. Don't quote me, but I think that tree is a redbud. We used to have one, but had to cut it done when we put on the addition. It looked just like that. I'm so glad you had fun at Fitbloggin. Workout in the Park was awesome too. Oh...favorite photo subject, probably the grandkids althought I do love doing the moon and any nature.

  6. I love all the pics! It really gives your blog so much personality. Is that tree a Japanese Cherry Blossom? It kind of looks like it. Your tutu is super cute! I made one like that for my neice for Christmas last year with red/green tulle. I threaded little jingle bells around the waist and she LOVED it! :) I haven't gotten into that Words with Friends game but my I have friends that play. I'm afraid I'll get addicted! Ha! :) I look forward to hearing all of your FitBloggin' tales!! Wish I could have gone. Next year for sure!!

  7. Woo! I see my card in there! It was great meeting you at Fitbloggin. I look forward to reading your blog and sharing thoughts with you! :)

  8. How did I not meet you? I look at your pictures and recognize many of the people and places.
    Oh well. Glad you had as much fun as I did.

  9. So glad I finally got to hug you in person!! MWAH!!!!!

    Favorite photo subject?? Mountains.



Comments are like big, squishy hugs to me - and I love hugs!
