    Have I mentioned how much I love Fitbloggin’? Oh, yea, I have. Best.Conference.Ever. Lunch The second part of Friday started with lunch, which was provided by the hotel/Fitbloggin’. Once again, I was happy to see so many healthy options, including fresh veggies, pickled veggies, fruit salad, sliced turkey and chicken, smoked salmon, balsamic-marinated Portobello mushrooms, […]

    Fitbloggin’ hasn’t even started yet, but I’m already having a fabulous time in Portland! Once my flight landed in Portland this morning, I hopped on a shuttle to my hotel for the next few nights. The Nines is a gorgeous hotel in the heart of downtown, and it’s the location for the Fitbloggin’ conference. I […]

    When Mal and I arrived at Black Butte Ranch last Sunday, it seemed like we had all the time in the world to enjoy our time away, but, wow, it really ended up flying by. I can’t believe our vacation is over. We packed a lot in (family get-togethers, trips to Bend, biking, hiking, yoga, […]

[…]

    After our golf outing and a little R & R around the house, Mal and I attended a family reunion party. Living on opposite sides of the country, we don’t often see this half of the family, so it was really nice to catch up with everyone. Eventually, I took a break from chatting to […]

Breakfast Before I left the house, I made a two-ingredient pancake with blueberries and a […]

    After our paddleboarding adventures yesterday morning, Mal and I visited Bend again to explore some more. We arrived late in the afternoon and then wandered around Wall Street and Bond Street, popping into cute shops and enjoying the sights and sounds.  During our travels, we walked by an adorable wine shop and tasting bar called The Wine […]
