How did that happen?
The exciting news is that I have big changes and fun ahead! One thing that I haven’t yet mentioned on the blog is that I will be going to Israel at the end of this month. I was given a unique opportunity to assist a friend who will be participating in a group trip for young professionals. I have never been to Israel, and I almost can’t control my excitement! I’ve known about the trip for the past few months but kept waiting for it not to work out. Yet, here we are just a few weeks away and there is a plane ticket with my name on it. Talk about a life changing trip!
Ps In case you were going to ask, the BOY is pretty jealous but very supportive as always!

What’s to Come in June…
-I am starting off the month right hosting a Girl’s Only sleepover. We are getting our nails done, enjoying a fiesta dinner, and watching chick flicks while drinking wine (if we can stay up that late)…ha ha!
-Finally taking my road bike for it’s first ride of the year. It will (hopefully) be in great shape for my triathlon just 2 weeks away.
-The BOY and I are hosting a Father’s Day BBQ
-My friends and I are going camping!
Not much to complain about here!
I’m also hoping to have the farmer’s market back and plenty of healthy, fresh recipes to come!
Use my heart rate monitor
-I found my monitor and it is in need of some repair. I have had it close to 6 years. How long should they last? I love it, but have recently started wondering if a wrist gadget that does heart rate and pace wouldn’t be better for me? Any suggestions on a well priced model?
-Although I didn’t beat last year’s time, I did have a negative split race and a blast running (and training) with my friend!
Detox the diet
-I started and ended the month doing well with this, but lost sight in the middle. I am hoping that warmer weather, an upcoming trip, and the farmer’s market will promote this goal moving forward.
Update my recipe page
-It’s been started and hopefully won’t take too long!
***Edited to add…write summer bucket list!
-Now that my work schedule has changed, the BOY and I will have plenty of day for local day trips, playing tennis, and other things on our summer list of fun!
-Cook more meals (and use local in season produce…especially veggies)!
-Have a successful first triathlon of the year!
-Continue working on the blog’s Recipe Page
