The Saturday 7

One day late...

1. This week we have had 12 members of Dan's family here for the holiday week/ weekend. I'm a "more -the-merrier!" type of person when it comes to hosting friends and family so it's been dreamy. We've had intellectual family discussions/debates, played lots of games, gone for several walks, done a family tabata session and eaten so much good food (and desserts!) Boring life/ diet resumes later this week.

2. I'm reading fairly consistently these days. I'm 95% done with  my "Bible  in a  year" plan (that I started  in December of last year). I'm hoping to be done by the  31st but most likely will finish in early April. Better  late than never, right?

It is what it is... and I'm all about being keeping' it real. :)

3. March Madness! I'm stoked that my long-shot pick of Syracuse paid off. There's not much about not having satellite TV that I miss, but the Olympics and sports are the biggies. It's so annoying that there's not a "pay-per" option for streaming online yet.…
