I started the morning telling the story of how dorky I look in my Zumba Class. We have an instructor who looks like she belongs in a music video because she's such a good dancer. The rest of the class is filled with women of all ages, shapes, and sizes, and we look like we are trying to look like her. Last night after class, I thanked her for giving us the confidence to believe we look like professional dancers.
Now I DON'T have a video of our class but I found this woman teaching some people that MIGHT AS WELL be our class. Notice she is coordinated, and we resemble those in the background...trying to keep up. Start looking at the video at about 4:00 minutes in.
I definitely need to follow up a story about exercise with a blog post about drinking...classy I am! :)
STRAWBERRY MILK ... WITH BOOZE? Yes, you heard right! Arriving in September, Adult Beverage Company will launch it's newest ready-to-serve beverage -- Adult Strawberry Milk, a 40 proof liqueur infused with premium vodka. Just open, pour over ice, and voilà-- just like mom used to make. Adult Beverage Company already makes Adult Chocolate Milk.
So have you ever lost your cell phone and thought to yourself, I wish I could just call myself to find it. Well, if you are without another phone, you can go online to a site called www.wheresmycellphone.com. It's free! I did a test run with it on the air and it did call my phone. It left a voice mail asking to use other services that they offer but so far, no spam, so it might be worth it for you to keep in mind.
Did you know?
President Obama is a home brewer? It's true, he started in 2011. I didn't know that. I wonder how many other President's have brewed beer at the White House. Well now, people want to know what his recipe is for the brew called White House Honey Aleusing honey from the beehive in Michelle Obama's White House garden. There's now a petition on the White House's website asking the Obamas to release their home brewing recipe.
Do you consider yourself to be an honest person?
Honest Tea, the organic bottled tea company, has released the results of the first National Honesty Index social experiment. From August 8–August 19, Honest Tea set up more than 50 unmanned pop-up kiosks in over 30 cities across the country, with each location stocked full of Honest Tea and Honest Ade. Signage at the stands offered the beverages for $1 per bottle with payment based on the honor system, going into a clear box on-site.
