Adelle Hello I Can’t Stop

I have to write about my Adele crush.  It wasn’t until I purchased her 21 Album that I really payed attention and immediately fell in love.  Seriously just listen to her and Hello {pardon the pun} look at her, she is BEAUTIFUL! We all have some favorites from that album … Rumor Has It Rolling In The Deep Set Fire To The Rain Someone Like You Turning Tables – {live acoustic} When was it about two weeks ago?  The newest 25 was released and OMG, worth the wait.  Wow and wow Adele, you have done it again.  You have managed to grab hold of my soul and have time just stop while I listen and hold on to each and every note.  Goosebumps up and down my arms and tears to my eyes.  Bravo my favorite female voice {okay a close run with Stevie Nicks}, I spent the entire 5th…  Read More…

Thanksgiving Shopping

When the 5:00 a.m. news came on {I am up that early making coffee for husband} and it said we were expecting “storm like weather to hit around 9:00 a.m., my head started going into game plan mode.  It was the Tuesday before Thanksgiving {early morning} and I knew I had some shopping to finish up at the market.  I didn’t really put any stress on myself this year since we already had the “big bird” resting safely in my mother’s refrigerator.  The rest of the list would be pretty easy and most of it consisted of fresh food and produce {packages and boxes don’t really work at my Thanksgiving meals}.  That being said, I wanted to wait as late as possible to pick everything up.  My mind had changed with this latest forecast update.  No waiting and putting it off, I would head out this morning and beat the…  Read More…

Holiday Shopping Gift Giving Guide

*Disclaimer this post contains affiliate links.  I love being organized and even more so this time of year.  I start shopping early for the holidays and I have a list of ideas for each person I shop for, that way if I can’t find what I want, I have options.  The problem about shopping too early, I tend to hide things and forget where I have put them when it comes time to wrap.   I have many years found gifts that I have purchased months after Christmas in their hiding places.  Nostalgia sets in when heading to some of our favorite shopping areas.  Some of my fondest memories of holiday shopping are when we would head to the large Nordstrom mall area {outdoors} here in California and bring the kids.  They were younger then, so if we were shopping for them, they really didn’t pay much attention, they were too…  Read More…

The Ultimate Coffee Date November

How on earth can it be November already?  I know this is cliche, but as I get older the time really does go by faster.  I really notice it with the kids.  They are growing up and I have been finding myself wanting to turn the clock back.  I have digressed, let me get back to the start … Happy Saturday and welcome to another #UltimateCoffeeDate with myself and co-hosts Deborah and Coco.  I love stopping each month and taking a long weekend to go over your links and comments.  It is a nice way to slow down and re-group, re-connect or connect with new bloggers. ♥ If we were having coffee, I would chat on  about how my kids are growing too fast.  I know, they have to and I am so super proud of all of them.  I just want to stop and slow down.  Is it because…  Read More…

Chef V Organic Green Drink

*Disclsoure – I am an affiliate with the Chef V brand.  My review and opinion are strictly my own. I spent so much time researching cleanses.  I was always just waiting for the right one to come along and the right time to do one {okay, so I had to talk myself into finally starting}.   It wasn’t until I came across the Chef V Organic Cleanse that I finally said “yes”.  I have done the Chef V Cleanse twice and was pleasantly happy each time.  With easy to follow step by step instructions, the Chef V Cleanse was a piece of cake {pun intended}.  You can read about my own experience here If a cleanse is your thing and your are ready to try one out, don’t forget to use the Promo Code FMWC to receive 55% off.

Nike Training and Running Thoughts

I am a week away from the Nike Women’s Half Marathon.  My very first time running this popular and highly anticipated race.  I have run half marathons before, heck this will be my fifth one.  I have been training on and off for months, I have been taking Pure Barre classes religiously in order to help strengthen my core and legs.  So why on earth is the Nike so scary for me?  Is it because I will be spending an entire weekend attending activities and workouts prior to race day?  Is it because this race has an estimated 30,000 runners {not 3,000}?  Is it because I have no idea what to expect, as I have not headed to the city and checked out the route?  Is it because I know I am going to be taking on some major hills?  I can keep second guessing myself all week long and…  Read More…

The Ultimate Coffee Date October

Happy Fall finally and good Saturday morning to all of you.  We are here this morning to get together for our monthly coffee chat, or maybe a pumpkin spice latte chat.  Whatever your choice, welcome.  Be sure to head on over and visit my co-hosts Deborah and Coco. ♥ If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I have three {3} half marathons in the next few weeks.  WHAT?  Yes, yes I do and now that I am reading this and saying it out loud in my head, I am thinking that I am totally off my rocker.  How did this happen?  When did I think I was going to take on so much running in such a short amount of time?  I’m not ready for all these, am I?  I have been really stepping up the Pure Barre classes, so I know I am feeling core strong,…  Read More…

Pure Barre and Running

By now most of us {I assume} has heard of Pure Barre.  The workout using the ballet bar, that cute little red ball, that looks similar to the red bounce ball we played with on the school yard {only smaller} and the stretching bands.  Yep, that’s the one.  Well I am a HUGE fan of Pure Barre and I have been incorporating the workout with my running for over a year now.  Wow, what a difference. Benefits of Pure Barre for running … {my version} Stamina Stronger core Arm strength while using when running Killer calf muscles Ankles {finally} Lean legs Toned Strong hamstrings, glutes and quads Toned inner thighs Great buttocks {that Pure Barre ledge} Running is not a new thing for me, I have actually been running for years.   I was running in my 20’s often and then again in my 30’s.  It wasn’t until the last almost…  Read More…

The Ultimate Coffee Date September

Good morning and happy Labor Day Weekend.  Welcome to another Ultimate Coffee Date and thank you so much for joining us.  Make sure to visit my co-hosts Deborah and Coco and be sure to link up your coffee related post. September is here yay, I am so ready for the Fall season.  As much as I love the summer, warm weather and swimming with the kids, I am so ready for some cool down.  We have been extremely hot here in Northern California and the fire season has been so scary.  I am just praying for a good winter and lots of rain.  We need water and I have some Coach rain boots that are dying to get out there and hit the puddles. If we were having coffee, I would share with you what some of my favorite Fall things were … Leaves Light breezy evenings The Fall moon…  Read More…
