Zumba class

I've never been to Zumba class.

Our 24 Hour Fitness Center is open tomorrow morning. We looked to see if any group exercise classes were being offered. The only offered is Zumba. It is a high energy dance class. My husband said this is the one where the attendees (all women that we've seen) wear skirts/wraps with shiny beads on them. Uh, I doubt that I will ever attend a Zumba class. But they say it's a great workout!

YMCA for family holiday photos

I've never been to the YMCA for family holiday photos!

Our local YMCA is offering family holiday photos! This is a unique event for facility members. There is a local photographer coming in to take the family pictures. I am not sure of the pricing but I bet the portraits will be good enough for holiday photo cards!

Street N Greet

I've never been to a Street and Greet before.

This is a service of Ticket Servant in conjunction with our local Christian radio station. I don't know how often they put on the Street N Greets, but today my daughter and I were blessed enough to get to attend one. It was free and lots of fun to meet this really cool Christian rock band. Maybe we'll get to attend another Street N Greet!

One World Direct

I've never been to One World Direct.

I don't like to talk to people at call centers. If I find myself having to use call center services I make sure I have exhausted all my possibilities before calling. When making these calls, it is SUPER important to me that I talk to someone who is not only friendly, but professional in their speech and manner. And while I know that there are many intelligent people across this globe, I want the one on the other end of the line to be someone that can understand me and that I can understand. I do get very irritated when making a call to an American based company but the service center is located overseas. It's important to do the very best you can for your company, but I think companies should also do the very best for their customers!

volleyball banquet

I've never been to a volleyball banquet before.

Yesterday was my daughter's. Actually, last year we did get to stop by for the end of the banquet, but missed the majority of it. So this year, I was glad she got to attend the whole thing. It was very nice. Each girl from all three levels (jr. high, j.v. and varsity) got called up and recognized for their role on the team. It went by quickly and was good to see all the girls receive their praise. I hope my daughter will continue to be a part of this league.

I've never been to a dermatologist.

If I did, I am sure there are many things I would need addressed. Age spots, wrinkles, and dark under eye circles. I have tried to get rid of dark circles by covering it over with make up (especially last week when I was an extra in a commercial!) But it doesn't always work very well. Come to find out the dark circles are like bruises. There are products that can help. Some contain elastin and collagen, others contain stem cells! These help to regenerate and reduce wrinkles, puffiness and dark circles.

trapeze class

I've never been to trapeze class.

I saw on the Biggest Loser last night, a trapeze class. This is a new trend in the exercise world, with studios in LA, New York, Boston and DC offering classes. It is not for everyone. It is for those who can hold their own body weight with both hands on the bar. It seems like it would be fun, different and really add a new element to a workout. There is still some debate on how well it works your core and how many calories it burns. No matter what, I bet it's a fun work out!

Mooyah Burger

I've never been to Mooyah Burger.

I guess this is a fairly new burger place in town. I just learned about it from a fellow blogger and actual RLF (real life friend.) It has pretty good reviews. The meat is fresh, never frozen and you can choose all the toppings you want. They say it rivals Fuddruckers for a little smaller price.

Houston Rockets season tickets

I've never been to purchase season tickets to the Houston Rockets.

It's an idea I am thinking about for my son's Christmas present. They have a pretty good six game package and I know he'd love the games. But the seats we can afford are way up high in the endzone. And we'd have to buy two packages. I think it would be cool and he would most likely love getting to see six games. At least from up that high he could not really see the power dancers (I wonder if they know the best weight loss pills!) Anyway, it would be pretty cool if we could swing such a cool Christmas gift!

get a tattoo

I've never been to get a tattoo.

It seems that tats are all the rage with the younger generation. I honestly don't see the attraction. Then I found out that my son wants to get one, to commemorate his deceased great grandmother. It seems this is the thing with young athletes these days, honoring a deceased relative by having their name tattooed on the body. I seriously hope he rethinks this before he is old enough to decide on his own....

electronic cigarettes

I've never been anywhere there were electronic cigarettes.

I had never even heard of them before! There was an article in last week's USA Today about these new gadgets. This article led to a discussion with my son. He said he'd seen a guy at McDonald's smoking one. My son went on to tell me he felt like it was a good idea, in keeping kids from getting addicted. I quickly told him that the article points out that nicotine and chemicals are still found in the electronic cigarettes, including some suspected carcinogens. The only benefit that I could see to the electronic cigarette is that I and others around the smoker would not have to ingest the second hand smoke.

Nike Commercial

I've never been to a Nike Commercial.

But tomorrow I am scheduled as an extra in one! I think it should be fun! I was able to be an extra in an Adidas commercial last year. They were pretty stingy. The shoot ran late and we did not get any snacks, not even water! I am hoping the Nike commercial will be more fun!
