One week down, five more to go! Can't believe a whole week has passed already! Off to reward myself with Harry Potter in IMAX followed by a healthy dinner, walk on the boardwalk (hope I don't freeze!), and rapid roulette. I'm betting on #11 :) Continue reading

My foot is still not quite 100% so I went with cross training today. Swam a handful of laps and spending the rest of the day heavy cleaning for a bunch of guests spending the long weekend. Not too shabby exercise-wise! Continue reading
