I got a new 'do...

Thought you may like to see my new haircut. :) Best part, is that I'm donating my ponytail to to make wigs for kids with cancer that have lost their hair. I have always wanted to do this, and I'm so glad I held out until now so that I could! Here is the sight if you want to check it out: http://www.pantene.com/en-US/beautiful_lengths.jspx

And here is my new hair-do!

Exercising My Right to Try New Things!

So, I have always been under the impression that because of my background in dance/gymnastics, this is the only way I can exercise. Weight lifting and stretching like I would in gymnastics, taking classes that cater to someone experienced in dance, and the occasional run for the wanna-be runner in me has basically been my exercise for the past 25 years.

Last night, I tried something new and scary: SPINNING. What a rush! I didn't even think I'd be able to stay on the bike, let alone actually get a workout. LET ME TELL YOU... I got a work out. My legs are screaming and I can barely walk up stairs.

But I'm pretty proud of my accomplishment...I got over my fear, admitted I may look dumb, but that trying something new was more important than how I looked or my insecurities. I'll definitely spin again. Probably not again this week, (because I won't be able to move) but I'll do it again sometime.

You should try something new too...how about today?

An Irish Recipe

My friend Jenni made these a few years ago for St. Patrick's day and I've wanted to try them ever since. I finally made them last night. :) They are so easy and yummy! Here is the recipe I used:

Irish Potatoes

2 cups shredded coconut
2 cups powdered sugar
3 tbsp. of cream

Mix gently, and roll into small balls. Roll in cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg. Chill, and eat. Delicious little sweet treats! Enjoy :)
