Hawaii or NYC

That is the question at hand.

A graduation gift from the mother.

Do I do Hawaii, where things to do can be cheaper, but I’d have to pay more out of pocket for the trip.

Or NYC, where the trip is cheaper but the things to do can be pricier.

I have been to NYC & didn’t get to do half of what all I wanted. Lack of planning to blame. I learned my lesson.

I’ve never been to Hawaii, but I’m seeing how cheap I could possibly make this trip.

I will be going with my mother – someone who doesn’t enjoy hiking (so no Diamond Head, something I’d love to see). She loves cultural things, so both places would be great for us to go to.

What to do, what to do.


Tom Petty & Pittsburgh + WIW


I’m finally going to see him play in concert!!

The tickets were expensive. Like, 2 tickets & our hotel took up my entire more than my bonus check for next month. But oh so totally worth it!

I can’t wait. It is going to be the highlight of 2013.

2 months & 2 weeks. 105ish days.

The show is in Pittsburgh, PA. 5 1/2hrs from where I am now. The one I love is going with me. Drive up Thursday for the show. Crash at the hotel. Get up Friday & maybe do some sight seeing for a bit. Then drive home.


Ok, so we were supposed to get all this snow last night. Like 2-5inches.

I got up early so I could be certain to get to work on time. I had everything laid out & ready to go for this morning.

I get up & look out the window. Nothing. Notta. No snow.


So I went back to bed.

I’m really hoping that the Roanoke area gets lots of snow. I want them to cancel my class for tonight. I’m so totally not in the mood to go to class tonight.

Last Week: 211.25
This Week: 210.25

Love it!! I wish it were going faster, but 1 pound a week is a really good weight loss. If I could keep at this pace I’d be content.
