My mom and her fiance spent Easter weekend with us. We spent Easter morning chasing large birds on the pier and watching dolphins.  The tree is on the Harbor Walk Village boardwalk and has dolphins and birds carved into it. Somehow I never noticed that before!

I found the above photo on Tumblr and my fiance managed to track down a similar sleep mask on Etsy and ordered it for me. I love unique gifts like this! 

Fitbit Flex Giveaway

My first giveaway! I'm giving away a Fitbit Flex, and a winner will be chosen tomorrow. You still have time to enter here.

Speaking of fitness, I'm looking to start a fitness routine more intense than the yoga + daily walking I do now. Something I can do from home and something not too expensive. Free would be best! So far I've looked into dailyhiit.com, P90X, Toneitup.com, etc. Any recommendations or experience with those programs?

 

Keep up with me on Twitter and Instagram.
