Monday Morning MeMe: April 28th

Monday Morning Meme at

April 28th Questions:

1. You have just been introduced to Oprah. What one thing do you want to talk to her about?

I would like to talk to Oprah about weight loss/fitness. It would be interesting to share my story and hear about hers as well.

2. What is the most fun you’ve had so far in 2008? Be specific, tell us all about it.

The most fun I have had so far in 2008 would probably be joining a fitness center. Hubby and I joined in Feb. and it's been a great experience so far. I really enjoy being able to use the various machines but I absolutely love the classes that are offered. My favorite is Turbo Kick and I do that 3x a week and I have also taken a Zumba class and hubby and I just recently started going to Spin class every Saturday.

3. Do spelling and grammar mistakes in newspapers and magazines upset you at all? What about spelling and grammar mistakes on blogs? Do you stop reading if there are too many mistakes? Or do you just ignore them? What about your own writing/blog? Are you sensitive about using correct grammar? Do you proofread before hitting that publish button?

Spelling and grammar mistakes sometimes bother be but not to the extent that I will stop reading unless it's obviously really bad. On my own blogs I do tend to proofread a bit too much before publishing.

4. How early do you start planning your summer vacation? Now tell us, what ARE your plans for summer vacation?

We don't usually take a summer vacation (no kids at home) but this summer we will be going to my parent's for a visit and we planned that trip about 3 months ago. We are however going to Jamaica again this December and that vacation was booked in March. We book that much in advance because the resort offers up to 50% OFF so we most definitely like to take advantage of that special. Only 8 months to go LOL

Happy Birthday To Me

Yep, today is my birthday, April Fool's Day. Kev and I celebrated both of our birthday's this past Sunday. We went to one of our favorite restaurants called The Key Wester. It takes us over an hour to get there so we don't go often but it's a nice treat. If you are ever in the Naperville, IL area you should stop in for lunch or dinner. We love it because of the Caribbean theme. You know we have to get our fix while we wait for our Jamaican vacation to come in Dec.

I exercised a lot today. Went to the gym and used the elliptical, did a Turbo Kick class and came home to walk 4 miles and did some ab work on the stability ball. I am exhausted now!

I am craving sushi but since I already had my b-day dinner, I think we'll just stay in tonight. I found out about a sushi buffet not to far from here and wanted to go there at first but The Key Wester won out. I think the sushi buffet will be good for Mother's Day *wink*

So far my mom and dad and my stepson have called me to wish me a Happy Birthday. I can't believe I'm 36. Not too worried about it though, I think I'm still young at heart.
