Trying Something New

Last night I took my first Nia class.  It's billed as, "a sensory-based movement practice that leads to health, wellness and fitness."  Think Yoga meets modern dance and throw in a healthy dose of introspection.  I'm definitely interested in trying it again!  If I can work up a sweat while dancing I consider that to be a well spent evening.  Throw in a couple of friends and I call it victory.

"Grilling Out"

Where I'm from, cooking outside is called bar-b-queing.  I've quickly learned since moving below the Mason/Dixon Line that this is an inaccurate use of the word "bar-b-que."  Barbecue is a specific preparation that is NOT THE SAME as grilling over coals outside.  Last weekend we had two very yummy opportunities to grill-out with friends.  No barbecue sauce involved.

Twin boys & Birthday Parties & Puppet Shows

I had the pleasure of attending a birthday party for my very favorite set of twins in the whole wide world.  Max and Sam just turned one. To celebrate the occasion, their incredibly talented aunt & uncle put on a puppet show!  Obviously, Max & Sam were delighted and it was nearly impossible to contain the cuteness.

How do you spell BBQ? Bar-b-que or Barbecue? Please discuss...
