What I've Been Up To

If you're gonna be a blogger, then blog, right? Boy have I been breaking that rule for the better part of this year thus far. There are the usual suspects: Facebook, Instagram (follow each other?), on-line Scrabble, and a smattering of Pinterest. There's also my love affair with my Nook. I've been doing so much late-night-pleasure-reading it's ridiculous. But the primary culprit, and I think close Snook 'n' Bubs watchers may have seen this coming, is . . . Zumba! Yep, I've gone completely zonkers for Zumba. To the point that I joined a team and we have actual weekly rehearsals and gigs! It takes up A LOT of my time, but as long as my husband (and kids) don't mind too much, and so far they've been beyond supportive and cool, then I certainly don't mind. It's such a blast, and it's especially fun to hang with people who are just as coo coo as me.

Here we are doing our thing at the San Diego County Fair last Saturday (I'm in pink): That's Bubs in orange, my niece in pink, and Snook in purple! See, Zumba is fun for the whole family!Look at the crowd! That's my mom seated at the corner of the dance floor wearing a blue shirt and sunglasses. My dad is right behind her in the hat. I don't think they ever thought they'd see me in another dance recital. :)
At another gig two Saturdays ago. That's me in white. My family and Jora and Alice came!And yet another gig. This time in yellow.

So that's where I've been spending a good deal of time and energy. But my plan is to come back here a whole lot more. There's probably going to be some back-tracking at first because while 2011 has certainly had its share of downers, there have also been some beautiful highlights that I'd love to share. And when I visit you, which I still do on a daily basis, I promise to be a better commenter. Commentator? Anyway, it's good to be back!

I still remember back way back when I posted my "exercising dilemma"... You "said" loud and clear- ZUMBA!!

Thank you, Torrie. I'm so happy for you that you found spinning. I've been wanting to try that for the longest time. Do you have special shoes and shorts? xo

Hey there! Great to 'see' you! My neighbor swears by Zumba but I haven't tried it yet. They have some classes right down the street... I just might try it out!
Happy Summer!!

Heidi said...

Hi Karen! Classes right down the street!?! Your neighborhood must be some kind of paradise. :) Let me know if you try it! Happy Summer!

Special shoes, but not shorts! Just typical "exercise" clothes :). I lucked out, since a friend had a brand new pair that didn't fit her (her feet grew)!
