Just a quick wish for a very happy new year from here in the middle of the Caribbean.  We are on the Norwegian Dawn, heading back to Miami.  We have had a fabulous, relaxing trip, and I think I might have caught the "cruise" bug.  Our next vacation might just have to be another cruise!

OK, so I am slow to the party here.  The thing is that I have been sick ALL week.  Plus also we had a giant snow storm, the kids were out of school one day this week and we are breaking records all over the place with the cold night-time temps.  Forgive.

This is the painted brick fence at the front of our courtyard.  I love how linear it is, especially with the mounds of snow from earlier this week.

What I did this weekend

Wanna know where I went on Thursday and Friday night?

If you can't tell who those people are from my pathetic phone photos...here is a little help:

Uh, Yeah.  I saw both Darius Rucker and Martina McBride in concert this weekend.
Can you say H.O.T.? 
Both of them...

Darius was here in Salina and it was an amazing concert. 
The Stiefel Theatre is the way to go when you are seeing a concert.  It is small and intimate. 
And by the way, he wants me.
Martina was just a limo ride (with 5 or 9 Blue Moons) away at the new Hartman Arena in Wichita.
It too is a smaller venue.

Both concerts were great.  I forget how fun a concert can really be.  Especially now when we can afford to buy better tickets! wink!

I have 2 new additions to my free-pass-five!

Last night's workout was a killer.
at the YMCA
running 2-3 laps 
in between 1 minute sets of leg and back excercises.

3 miles run
7 body parts strengthened
a great stretch at the end.

Thanks, Hope.  You're the BEST trainer ever. 
You kill me and make me stronger at the same time. 
Thanks to you, I WILL have a faster 1/2 marathon time in the spring!
