Striving to Live a Life of Adventure, Excellence, and Faith.

No Where To Go! No Where to Be!

Hello!!!  I can't believe its been 12 days since my last post. I truly needed a break, and actually took several days and headed to the beach with my sweetie.  We had an incredible time just sleeping, relaxing under our cabana, and eating great seafood.  I actually turned OFF my emails on my phone, only checking a couple of times, and it was nice to just to relax, read, and do nothing.  I truly had No Where To Go! No Where to Be!  

And, since nothing was going on, I had time to finish several books:

Decision Points by President Bush - I bought this book on my Kindle a year or so ago; however, I just got around to finishing it, and it was AMAZING.  What an incredible account from the President's viewpoint on how major events such as 9/11, Katrina, Financial Crisis, Social Security Reform,and other big events that took place in our country.  President Bush is one of my favorite ALL TIME FAVORITE Presidents, and I know history will prove itself over time to show that legacy he laid for our country.

The Fame Game - This is Definitely my Guilty Pleasure.  Its a "Teen" book, but I have the prior three books in this series, and I was excited to find out last week that Conrad's new book hit shelves the week before we hit the sand. The book didn't disappoint, and I read it in a day and half.

50 Shades of Gray - OH MY.  EVERYONE is talking about this book, and saying its a MUST READ for the beach.  My friend Laney bought the first book for me before I left for the beach, and I was excited to get into this book.  Well I have to say, that half way through the book, I had to put it down.  Its very risque and a little tooo much for this gal.

And, of course I caught up on my magazine reading too: InStyle, Shape, O Magazine, Cosmo, and Vanity Fair (which is like reading 50 short stories.  The writing in VF is outstanding.)

So, what can I take away from my Week Long Vacay: 

1. I need rest.  I stay On-The-Go ALL the the time, and even at home I am constantly cleaning, laundry, picking up, or even working on work projects.  I realized that I have to start getting into a morning and night routine to help me establish some balance and make sleep a BIG priority!

2. I need to Walk More - I truly enjoyed our daily walks on the beach, and walking around and shopping after dinner.  It allowed me time to chat with my hubby, and get a little exercise in at the same time.

3. I need to start practicing yoga again.  Its such a calming exercise, and my heart would appreciate me so much more.

4. I need to take 24-36 hours each weekend to UNPLUG.  No IPHONE, COMPUTER, EMAILS, etc.  To become media free for a few hours to recharge!!  I plan to start this next weekend......details to come.
This past week was GREAT, and I am so thankful that I had the time to unwind and enjoy the quiet side of life. 

This Was My Theme Song Last Week..........LOL! 

And, now I am ready to take on the week, and look forward to all the week has to offer!!  And, speaking of exciting, tonight is the MET GALA!!  I am so excited.  Its the ULTIMATE FASHION event with all the coutour, oh the coutour!!  It just makes me excited just thinking about all the fashion.
