30 days of workouts...

We went to New York for Thanksgiving (I'll do a separate post on that) and ate and did a ton.  I found the Crumbs Cupcakes.  :) They were heavenly and now they need to come off my body.  We got back really late on Friday night and on Saturday - I decided...I'm done.  It's time to focus and make the commitment to working out.  So I've decided....(actually I started on Saturday!)

30 days of workouts!

Day 1 (11/27) - An iTrain treadmill workout.  40 minutes of butt-kicking running.  Mileage 3.3 miles - totally wanted to stop after a mile - but kept going.
Day 2 (11/28) -  Chisel Class at Crunch Fitness and more running.  Mileage 3.25 miles (Chisel is a low weight high reps class and the running wasn't bad - I added more songs to my iPod.)
Day 3 (11/29) - Ultimate Conditioning at Crunch Fitness. (Ultimate Conditioning is a total body workout that includes both high and low impact exercises - basically it kicks your booty!)

I really enjoy all kinds of workouts so I think the next 30 days is going to be a DVD mix of Tracy Anderson Method (if I can get the dance moves down - it's pretty funny actually.  When I was in LA - I did take a class at her studio and it was great.  ), Physique 57 (took a class here when I was in NYC - not this last time though), and Insanity (it is truly INSANE!) as well as taking classes  @ Crunch and running.

Can't wait to see what I feel like in 30 days - well now - 27! :)

(This is me as of Nov. 23 - pre- Crumbs and pre-double chin - LOL)

I'll be updating my facebook page with my workouts so if you want to follow along - click here!

(PS - since it is the holiday season - you might see me doing 2 workouts in a day - especially if I bake the cookies that my sister showed me while skyping with her last night....ohhhh - they looked yummy!

Happy Working Out!!

{trend alert} Photo Booths are HOT!

Photo booths have been making a comeback.  They have been popping up all over the place from corporate events to social events.  I was just on facebook - yes I'm a junkie and came across Paper and Cake's Holiday Photo Booth Accessories.  These are the cutest things!!

Packaging for the holidays

I love packaging - just ask my husband.  I have paper, tissue paper, ribbon - you name it - I have it.  I just got my shipment from Nashville Wraps of clear bags, small kraft boxes and crinkle for stuffing.  A few weeks ago - I ordered the most amazing bakers twine from The Twinery.  I ordered the Simply Traditional Christmas Trio.

I also ordered some more packaging goodness from Parcel and Paper.  The Sample Package to be exact. I loved the little bitty tags and the red and white twisties that came with it.  I need to order more.

Now I need to get my holiday tags and I should be all set.  I'm anxiously awaiting what will be coming from The TomKat Studio.  Last years holiday tags were uber cute!!

If you're looking for inspiration and ideas - head over to Think Garnish.  Oh my goodness!!!

Have fun!

Oh my Tory...

When my sister was in town a couple of weeks ago - she really liked my Caroline Tory Burch ballet flats.  They are a little pricy @ $225, but I have to say - I love them soooo.  She called today - she was at Nordstrom in Phoenix looking for them.  Unfortunately they don't sell them at Nordstrom - sad!!  I bought mine at Neiman Marcus when I was in Chicago for an event.  I actually bought a few things on that trip - but we won't go there.  Ha ha!

These are the most comfortable shoes and when these get a hole in them - I'll be sure to buy another pair.

Introducing {Hey Caryl!}

I get asked all the time…where did you get that? or I need to find something like this!do you know where I should go for that? 

I’m always up for a challenge – but I would say, the majority of the time – I can give my gal pal the answer right away.

I’m a research junkie – I’m always on the hunt for the coolest thing, a great cupcake place, awesome inexpensive bottle of wine (if they label is cute – they have me at “open me up!”)

So – I’ve decided to create a place where I can share - and friends as well as soon to be friends can ask questions and give their own tips.

So drumroll please….I’ve decided to call this brain child of mine {Hey Caryl!}.  You might ask – kinda a random name…but when ever some one says to me – Hey Caryl – 9 out of 10 times – they are about to ask me where would I be able to find…So I thought – how appropriate.

Funny thing is – I’ve already gotten 2 calls today!  Can you guess what they were calling for?  Just wait and see...

So….{Hey Caryl!} is officially open for business!
