Pardon My Break for an Adventure!

by agirlandhermutt on July 6, 2012

Hi friends! Long time, no chat. I took a little unintentional break from the little blog, but a lovely intentional break from work and life. On Sunday morning Boston got a little bit brighter because my Dad came to town! I just spent the past week enjoying the city with him and having all kinds of fun adventures.

We managed to pack in tons of food and laughs AND we also crossed off one of my 32 While 32 items…

#23. Take a ride in a Hot Air Balloon!

The feeling of being in the air among the clouds and birds was amazing. I’m so glad I got the opportunity to do this and even better was that it was with my Dad!


After several years of different adventures including zip lining, walking a marathon &  a half, snow mobiling, snorkeling, parasailing, wave running, indoor skydiving, horseback riding through the ocean, and now ballooning…we have officially decided to keep our feet on the ground or under the water. Being in the air is amazing, but holy moly it is scary sometimes! :)

Any thoughts on the next adventure?! Scuba diving? White water rafting?


I’ll be back next week with some fun updates, a new recipe and a few CSA updates!

Have a great weekend!


Master Tuber…

First thing first…I got a few tweets,comments and messages asking me about one of my Fantastic Four answers.

3. Four words/phrases I use a lot
I’ll give you $1…

Just to give you an idea of how I use the phrase it typically goes down like this.

ME: I’ll give you $1 if you can guess who had toilet paper stuck to her shoe…AGAIN.
Coworker: Ha! You are so wrong.

ME: I’ll give you $1 if you will pour me a glass of wine.
The Scientist: You are such a bum…and a lush. Keep your $1. Winking smile

I’ve also used it on this blog before! I never even realized till I did a little digging around. Check out here, here, and here.

Weekend Warrior!

Its official. I could be in the Olympics for snow tubing. Watch for me in 2014!

Over the weekend The Scientist and I dressed up in about 10 layers of clothing and hit the slopes at Amesbury Sports Park. Neither of us had been tubing so we were looking for something low key and close by.

For $22 each we were able to get 3-hours of tubing. You have your choice of riding up the people mover, a moving sidewalk that takes you and your tube to the top of the hill.

OR you can sit in your tube and ride up the hill in style.

Once you get to the top of the hill, pick your perfect place to drop your tube, and go to town!

Even though we were bundled up I could feel a few icicles forming on my nose stud. How gross is that!?

We managed to go down quite a few times until our little hands couldn’t take the cold any longer. Brrr!

Tubing=FUN! We decided that our next adventure is going to be learning how to snowboard. I’ve been skiing once and I don’t think two skis are for me. For those in the area, any ideas on where I should go to learn?! What equipment should I bring that I can’t rent?!

Oh, and thank goodness we went on a Saturday. On Sunday I watched Frozen. Oh heck no.

Not the best movie ever but enough to make me rethink going on a ski lift a little. EEK! Winking smile

Hope you had a great weekend! Give me some snowboarding tips!

PS. I took a video of the two of us flying down the hill. Unfortunately I cackle like the witch from the Wizard of Oz for the entire video. HA! Next time!


Walking in a Winter Wonderland!

January 12, 2011

Around 1a or so this morning it started…the snow. You may ask, “What the heck were you doing up at 1a?” Ahh. Good question. Korky. The answer is Korky. He is a old dog and has a tendency to want to go outside at the most awkward times. Good thing he is cute! As it […]
