Ski Time


I can’t get this…


Or this in my own city.


Let’s travel! I always get asked on our later Colorado trips, “Will there be snow?” Oh yes. When you are at 10,000 feet, there is plenty.


B upgraded the girls annual passes to Copper this year. CS and I love Copper so we were excited.


With all 3 Fuller girls on skis this year, we maximized the 6 seater chair.


I even packed a selfie stick to get some group shots.


I’m learning how to use it. I hooked it all up without realizing I clamped down on the take-a-picture-button on the side. I got 198 photos of my skis in 5 seconds.


It’s hard trying to get all that shit out on the chair, not fall off, and not lose any gear to the ground below. Kayla was my rockstar this year! She had new longer skis and mastered them like a champ.


Syd was our navigator with Reagan at her side. They lead us down the slopes all day long!


It was very fun for me to watch B and his girls. They all have come a long way from when we first started doing this.


After skiing all day, I thought these girls would be down in bed quickly. Nope! Dance battle ensued.

After I took a turn, Kayla was looking for her next victim. It was Future uncle.


We had a new player this year. A new doggie. I tried to accommodate her when the girls had to head back to town for some soccer. Hindsight, I should have left her alone. But she looked like mix of my last 2 dogs. I couldn’t resist and it costed me. I was down in bed with an allergy attack like no other for 2 days.



We spent a day walking around Leadville. Repeat, yes they have snow. Up to the roof!


One of my favorite thrift shops has been replaced with a grow shop. Highest weed shop around. Get it?! It’s at 10,000 feet.


While I’m reading my Ellen book, she talks about being in Colorado and wanting to see what her readers are doing. Well, cool! I’ll show you! I took to Twitter hoping @TheEllenShow would catch on.





I got a few likes, but not my break through moment. Try #1 got a better response. Until next time, see ya Rockies!


Just Ignore It

Ever feel like shit physically but only in your upper body region? I’ve had allergy issues of gigantic proportions lately. It’s the worst because I have no cure other than to medicate and deal. Mucinex D, Zyrtec, vitamins, cough drops, Afrin. My ears sound like clogged silly straws when I blow my nose every 10 minutes. You are welcome for that idea. I was over it. Even though I am allergic to life, my ass was showing up for the Holliday Park Trail Run. It fuels my soul. I’ll ignore my pain.


It was 40 degrees and ugly cloudy. But the course turned out ok and my shoes fared well on the terrain.  I was under an hour for 5 miles and that was A-OK with me. After the race, I laid on the couch with warming blankets. K said let’s go watch basketball. Urg. I was in no mood or position. I was miserable. I had to pass. Luckily she invited me Sunday too. Ok, let’s ignore this crud and move on! We got to watch Michigan move on past Louisville! Go Big 10!


Wichita almost moved on passed Kenturkey. And hot off the press, Krzyzewski is done. I’m not a Duke fan. Always root against them, really surprised Duke conceded (or seemed to) with 8 seconds to go. The 4 solid minutes I spent on my bracket feels about right. Now if I can just get my head to feel right…

Friendly Wager

Whenever my HLP and I make a bet, I have to be careful with the punishment so that I’m not the one who looks silly. For the IU v PU basketball game, I told her to bring a Tervis to our viewing party. Loser has to drink out of the opposing team’s Tervis for 48 hours. Going in, I was pretty confident. During the game, not so much. It came down to the very last minute. Victory for me! Sorry Tervis, you have to endure some CC for a little bit.


2017 Crossroads Classic

Two great friends reached out and said “Hey, want to go to the Crossroads Classic with us?” Yes please! Watching Boilers, Bulldogs, Irish, and well… Hoosiers. Count me in! And my HLP would probably like it too!


Making our way to our seats, I saw yur boy Blue!


Great times with great friends!


I had to show my gratitude. They could have sold these tickets for 3x the money! Thanks for looking out!


Who’s that? BMW Edition

Previously & From the archives…

I secured a front row seat the 2016 BMW Championship. I love calling in favors because I don’t mind repaying them. I was excited to see a lot of the newer players this year. I really wanted to see the Stache.



There were a bunch others, like Jordan Spieth, Louis Oosthuizen and Branden Grace. Since it’s been a hot minute since the event, I have no idea who this is or who is in several of my other pictures but I’m going with Dustin Johnson.


Great way to spend a day with a friend!


As we dodged the rain clouds and hydrated, we stumbled across someone’s lost stash not stache. After trying to find the hidden cameras or undercover cops, the table in front of us noticed our awkward behavior.


It ain’t legal here, but they were taking the goods.

#22pushups for #22Kill Awareness

Did you know every day, there are 22 Veterans in our country that commit suicide?

CS was challenged to raise awareness for this issue using push-ups. The rules from 22Kill are simple:

  1. Once you are nominated your 22 days start the following day.
  2. Every day you record yourself doing 22 push-ups. Try your best to reach 22. If that means doing assisted (from your knees) push-ups or that you have to stop and take a break that’s fine but try to get them all done in one video.
  3. Every day you must nominate a different person. Try to choose people you think will want to do this and/or have the ability to do it.
  4. And finally, have fun with this. This is a simple and fun way to get the word out about a matter that more people need to be aware about.

These brave men and women put their lives on the line to protect our freedoms. It is very sad that so many Veterans feel that suicide is the only way out. Pay it forward if you agree.

I accepted my nomination. Today I nominate… Brandon Fuller.

My pushups need work! #22pushups for #22KILL

$754 Burpees

Previously. (I missed 2015, but they didn’t. Over $600 raised last year.)

I’m so blessed to have year-after-year caring supporters of my philanthropic cause, the Pink Ribbon Connection (PRC). My gym at work loves a challenge and loves to challenge it’s members. Who wants to do 1 burpee for every $ raised?!


This year, we had a guilt factor 🙂 Come, do the burpees with us! Even if you are in San Diego! I only had 40 minutes to offer in my busy work day. I figured a 100 burpee day would be my commitment. Make it visible and achieve your goal.


Let’s get to work!




I met my goal of 100 burpees faster than expected. Urg. Ok, let’s do 54 more to be a bigger part of the gang. The gang did SEVEN HUNDRED and FIFTY FOUR burpees. That’s quite insane. This is what getting to that point looks like.


The aftermath…


This fundraising effort is directly connected to our community. PRC provides Peer Counseling Help Line, Breast Cancer Informational Gatherings, a PRC Newsletter – The Pink Letter, a Library and Patient Resource Guide. And what I love the most, PRC provides free Wigs, Prostheses, Bras, Hats, Turbans and Accessories to our survivors. I appreciate Komen’s efforts. I hope you appreciate and value ours. Donations are always welcome.
