highlights of my life

Most of my highlights consist of my puppies, going to concerts, being with my family, health and the work I do...oh, and don't forget...FOOD! It's all the things I love and enjoy.

I recently, at the last minute, went to see Puscifer and I am so glad I did. I've been a Tool fan since I was in middle school and have seen them and A Perfect Circle and had not been all too impressed. Maynard mostly stands back and you can barely see him. He hardly moves and there's not much of a 'show'. I'd be better off lying on my living room floor blasting his music, it'd all be the same.

Puscifer was different. It was in a much smaller venue than Tool and A Perfect Circle, it didn't sell out and we took the floor seats. He showed himself and hung out with the crowd after the show up front on stage, in chairs. They played loud and there was a ton of bass, you could feel your hair and your bones shake with the music. I wouldn't even think twice to see them again.

My friend had gotten a threat about being kicked out if he filmed so I didn't take any video, which is such a bummer. So, I can't share any video. I would suggest a search for them on YouTube to find some good live videos of those who took the chance. UPDATE: they just posted a really good video on their Facebook page, embedded below for your pleasure...and, mine :)

Lots of <3

P.S. I see you, St. Cloud. You stole so much from me and are hurting me, yet I stole nothing from you and do not hurt you on purpose. Please leave me alone.

seriously excited

{ -- rockin' the walking treadmill at work, love it! -- }

I have some really great news and I can't wait to share it with you but it'll have to wait. Why?! Well, I'm working on protecting myself further as my recent breakup still wants to haunt me but it's getting fixed and it'll just take time. I'm really in no hurry so it's all okay. I still can't wait to talk about it!

In the meantime, I am kicking a** and taking names when it comes to working out. I feel 10X stronger than I was weeks ago. New Jazzercise routines are in and they're so much fun and get my heart rate going. The one thing that always bothered me though was this one instructor brags about her heart rate being so high but from what I've learned from trainers and from a ton of articles, is that you're not supposed to let it get that high. However, she is super fit so I have to give her credit. At the moment, I'm keeping mine in the fat burning zone which means, I don't work as hard and do all the high impact moves as often but I'd rather be burning fat than anything else on my body.

Also, today is my dad's birthday! <3 him so much :) I've been spending a lot of time with them lately and I love it. Watching The Walking Dead, The River and cooking dinners. I'm very lucky to have them in my life and the support is amazing. I don't know if I could do it without them.

Keep on keeping on with yourselves.
