River Cruise

I've never been on a river cruise.

In looking for ideas for our upcoming twenty-fifth wedding anniversary, I have come across river cruises. These are available in many places throughout the world. You can cruise places like the Mississippi River or even the Nile. I think any of these would be great. Seeing great historical sites, enjoying the romance of a cruise, eating steamed and grilled seafood, spending time alone together, these all come together for the makings of a great trip!

Hot Chocolate Run

I've never been to the Hot Chocolate Run.

Sponsored by Ghirardelli, there are several locations for the Hot Chocolate Run throughout the nation. It is a 15k run complete with swag. The best part though comes at the finish line....hot cocoa and chocolate provided by Ghirardelli!

community garden

I've never been to a community garden.

I think there is one around here, though I don't know who it is for. It is located inside a park but it is usually locked up. I had never seen anyone there nor even any gardening tools around. But produce was growing so I knew someone tended to it. Last week when I took my nephews to the park, we saw folks out working in this garden! While I still don't know who is in charge of the garden, who works in it or who benefits from it, I was happy to see people working in it. Maybe one day we will be to find out the details of this community garden.

I've never been to Ireland.

And when I saw the Groupon available for a week in Ireland I thought that it might be perfect for our 25th anniversary! It is for a six night stay including two nights in a castle. The other nights are in local hotels. A horse drawn carriage ride, a guided walking tour, breakfast each day, car rental for self guided tours and a medieval banquet dinner in a castle is included in the deal. Now I just wish air fare was included in this awesome deal!

I've never been to an auction.

My dad and youngest nephew have recently gotten into going to auctions a few times a month. I have to admit it does sound interesting. I hear you can find virtually anything you are looking for at auction. There are antiques, and dishes and electronics. There are toys and trash pumps and furniture. There are collectibles and memorabilia. I bet you could find anything you need or want at an auction if the timing was right.

relay triathlon

I've never been to Relay Triathlon.

While I have been part of a relay team in a triathlon, I've never participated in a tri that is set up as a relay. I found one taking place this fall that requires four team mates: a swimmer, two runners and a cyclist. I believe that is the order of the events as well. Now I can see that would be a lot of fun. And it would be a lot of fun for my nephew to record and use the free downloader to show everyone the "hilarious" relay video! Or maybe he would do the tri instead of making and downloading videos....

HITS triathlon

I've never been to a HITS triathlon.

A new "brand" of triathlon is making its debut this year. It is the HITS triathlons. There are twelve tris in the series with a distance for everyone, from beginner to seasoned triathlete. At each event HITS is offering a full and half distance Ironman, an Olympic distance, a sprint and a super-sprint or open event. This short event is perfect for beginners and to encourage everyone to give it a go, the open event is FREE!!

Drop Down Deals

I've never been to Drop Down Deals.

I am always looking for coupons and deals whenever I shop online. Today I learned about Drop Down Deals. Here you can download a tool that lets you find the coupon deals on sites you already shop; you will find Kohl's, Target, Home Depot, Toys R Us and calvin klein coupons. You can even add a daily deals tool to your Facebook page.

Oklahoma City Marathon

I've never been to the Oklahoma City Marathon.

My husband and I signed up for the OKC half marathon distance. The run is done in honor and memory of those affected by the Oklahoma City bombing. The race this year will take place on April 29,2012. We should start early enough that we can finish in time to get to church with our son, who is going to college just outside OKC.
