Birthday Present and More Pictures of my Dog

Yesterday I was so sore I could barely move so I decided to take a rest day. Working out at the gym is hard!

My husband and I will be leaving tomorrow afternoon to go to Lake Geneva. Every year his family goes up there around or after New Years and takes over a whole hallway at the hotel. It is a weekend where we sit around, drink, play games, and eat really delicious junk food. It's basically Christmas without all the stress of preparing, cleaning, and gift giving. We leave on Thursday and come back on Sunday. Since we won't be around to celebrate my birthday on Friday, I got to open up my present early. Drum roll please...

Yes, that's an iPad! I've been wanting one ever since they came out but would never justify such a large purchase (especially on myself). My husband knew what I was thinking so he decide to get one for me. (After I opened it, he did say that it was on sale because someone returned it after opening it. He really knows how I love a good deal.) on the plus side, I'll be able to keep up with all my blogs while in Lake Geneva, as long as the hotel has some kind of wi-fi. (Although, The Abbey tries hard to be upscale so there might only be free wi-fi in the lobby.)

Naturally the first thing I did was take a bunch of photos of my dog and mess with the Photo Booth feature. I know this is going to be a fun weekend!

Today on Living Social's website, they have a 1 year subscription to Women's Health magazine for $8. As I'm just starting to get more into lifting weights, I thought it would be a good starting point. If you want in on this deal too, here's the link!

Have any of you subscribed to Women's Health before? What did you think of the mag?

Do any of you also have an iPad? What are some good apps? Pinterest really needs a better iPad app.


  1. So cool that you got an iPad! Are you doing the SN-OW run (or however it is called) in Lake Geneva? You are going to have so much fun.

    I used to get Women's Health for a long time. It is a good mag! However, I felt like it was the fitness version of Cosmo - a lot on sex! Ha ha. And they started to have the same types of article over and over. There is a lot of good stuff in there though!

  2. Yes, I'm going to do a race while in Lake Geneva (or at least, that is the current plan!)

    I feel it gets that way with most magazines when you subscribe for awhile. You see the same articles in different ways. I'm excited for this subscription to start! My friend subscribes to Muscle & Fitness but I think this will be a good starting point. :)

  3. Yay! Happy Birthday! I don't have an IPad but it would be cool to have one!

    Have fun!

  4. Thanks Amanda! Good luck back at Yankee tomorrow! I can't wait to hear all about it :)
