Hey there! I decided to do a holiday gift guide this year, because let’s face it. Sometimes shopping for someone can be overwhelming, and we need a little inspiration! So, without further ado, here are some ideas for that special person in your life.
This expression is normally used for work, but why stop there! I’m a firm believer that if you wish to be successful in sticking to an exercise regimen, you must find the right exercise for you, and you’ll end up NOT regarding it as “working out”, but “having fun” instead. This is even more important during the holiday season, because we are engaging in all kinds of delicious foods that we may not normally have on a regular basis. So, in addition to finding an exercise you love, also make time during this holiday season to get out there and get active the day after your festive holiday engagements, instead of participating in the downward spiral called “leftovers”.
On my birthday back in September, all I wanted was a f#@%ing crunchy taco. You would think that wouldn’t be too hard, but we were up in Portland, and though they have some pretty authentic Mexican joints, the fact that I am vegetarian made it very difficult. To my dismay, there were no crunchy tacos to be had on my birthday trip to the Pacific Northwest.
This was the scene from my hotel room the morning of the second day of the expo. It was after the first day that I attended. So unassuming, but this is where the magic HAPPENS!
The Arizona Hot Sauce Expo
The park opened at 10am sharp, and we were there close to open. It took a little while to pick up, but Arizonians came out in droves to participate in the spectacle that was about to befall upon them. November is a spectacular time to hold a Hot Sauce Expo in Arizona, because those Arizona summer’s can get pretty brutal. Growing up in Las Vegas, I can say without a doubt that Arizona’s summers are hotter. Today was a typical November day in the desert, at a balmy, and even hot at times 85 degrees.
