Hi everyone, life has been tres tres busy and action-packed. I've had all sorts of fun adventures! Here are a few fun things I've been up to in the past week.
I finally rode the new roller coaster at Universal - Rip Ride Rockit. It was intimidating! As you can see, it goes straight up so you're laying on your back as it starts. The cool part was once you sit down you pick a type of music and then select a song you want it to play while you ride. Each seat has speakers so you only hear your song and no one else's. I chose Glamorous by Fergie. It was fun to ride along to that and it calmed my nerves.
I ran the Harvest Hustle 5K for Junior League. It was a fun event we put on! I ran without training at all and finished at around 30:27. I will take it! Next time I will make time to train.
With work, I went to an all-day seminar called Get Motivated. There were some great speakers! I learned a lot about leadership, being positive and taking action. Above is Laura Bush. What a classy, polished and down-right sweet lady she is. I loved her speech. She gave an update on what the family is up to and spoke of her time at the White House and her perspective on different things they went through, 9/11 etc.
Colin Powell was also amazing. I just loved his leadership style and the stories he told. Other speakers included Zig Ziglar, Rudy Giuliani and Lou Holtz among others. They were great as well.
I also went to a bachelorette dinner, helped the bride make chocolate dipped pretzel rods for favors, attended a lifegroup (like sunday school) party and had 15 hours of dance practice. I love the busy life I lead - well usually ;)
Tomorrow, bright and early, I am heading to Grapevine, Texas for a sorority sister's wedding weekend. My college bff and I are flying out and going to be handing out programs and be the guest book attendants. I am thrilled to be part of her special day!
Anyone have any fun suggestions for things to do in Grapevine? We are going to the spa at the Gaylord one morning. We won't have a car, but the hotel has a shuttle that can take us to local places.
Fun things to do?
DFW here I come!!!
