Hubby's Birthday Weekend

This past weekend, my husband and I celebrated his 27th birthday in San Francisco. I got a great deal on some tickets to the San Francisco Giants game against the Texas Rangers. My hubby love baseball and the Giants so I was super stoked when I came across these two tickets right next to the Giants dugout. We had a great time on Orange Friday (sportin' the color proud). A couple foul balls past by our heads, we had some delicious garlic fries and I was entertained by the handsome Giant's players that were directly to my right. Although the Giants didn't win, Hubs and I still had a great time!

We decided to stay the night in the city instead of making the hour drive home. I, again, got a great deal on a hotel from We stayed at the Intercontinental Hotel right next to the Metreon and Soma. We searched for a bar to have drinks but came up empty. There was a bar in the hotel but wayyy overcrowded with guests who were there for a dentistry party..Right?.. anyhow, here's a few snapshots from our room. There was even a Keurig Coffee maker in the room! I was excited about that. From our room you could even see the AT&T Ballpark (where the SF Giants play). Kinda cool

 The next day we woke up early and went to Pier 39 and had breakfast. Best biscuits and gravy we've ever had! My mouth is watering thinking about them. We walked around the pier and decided to head to Golden Gate Park to the Academy of Science. They had a special exhibit on earthquakes. There was a simulator where you could feel the San Francisco earthquakes of 1906 & 1989. SCARY! I definitely would not want to have been there. We walked around the aquarium and other exhibits as well. We finished our day off with dinner at the Cheesecake Factory and then make the trip back home... My husband had a great time.

 Until our next adventure.

Happy Saturday!! I just got back from doing my Zumba workout.

Unless you live under a rock you should know what it is ;-) Or you can find out more here.

There are so many different ways you can try Zumba;

in a class

 Xbox, Wii or DVD's

They even offer Zumba you can do in the pool, and some designed just for toning.

Whatever your cup it tea is, I suggest you give it a shot. I always dreaded going to the gym and trying to figure out what to do to lose weight. My mom and I have been going to a Zumba class for a little over a month now and we love it. We take an hour long class and it doesn't even feel like we are working out. I feel like I am having fun dancing. Don't get me wrong, it does get you sweating and you start to feel it as a workout. It does get a little easier with each class and we learn new routines once a month and incorporate them with the ones we already know. It definitly is a full body workout and isn't only for women. Although, I'm still trying to get my husband to come with me...

Do you do Zumba? "Ditch the workout, and join the party!"
