File this one under fun and quirky.
Ever wish people would just smile and say “Hi” more often? So did the creators of “Ohiya.” The simple realization that the world would be a happier place if people just spontaneously said “hi” to one another spawned a line of clothing aimed at just that. Fun, cute, quirky characters encourage random acts of friendship that can start from just two letters: H-I.
Like I said, fun, cute and quirky. Check out some of their Ts here.
You can never have too many pairs of shoes.
I just ordered a new pair of Steve Madden boots from Nordstrom – can’t wait until they get here! I don’t have a pair of shorter boots now that I can wear with jeans, just taller pairs. These seemed like exactly what I was looking for. They should arrive in a few days and I’m crossing my fingers I love them just as much in person as I did when I saw them online.

I had an amazing time in Miami. Work? Absolutely, but a ton of fun. And any schedule filled with workouts, sightseeing and healthy eating is, to me, a perfect weekend.
The hotel we stayed in, the Fontainebleau, was breathtaking.
The Fontainebleau. Gorgeous.
The grounds were gorgeous and it was right on the ocean. It was beautiful and the hotel staff were really gracious and helpful.
The weekend was filled with workouts. We had a soccer-inspired workout, a boxing workout, a Cross Fit-inspired workout and a cardio/strength workout. The time between many of the workouts was filled with biking. The weather was exactly what I needed: mid 80s and incredibly sunny.
I met a number of fantastic trainers on the trip including Angela Parker, who is known for her kick-butt boot camps.

I had a really fantastic time with a great group of inspiring, healthy women. Can’t think of a much better way to spend a weekend!
It is currently 36 degrees in Boston. And windy. Very, very windy. Today in Miami, it was 81 degrees. And sunny. Very, very sunny.
Friday morning I leave for Miami for the weekend. I will be working, but I do not care. It will be sunny and I love my job so what’s not to like? I’ll be staying in the Fountainbleau hotel in Miami – quite possibly the nicest hotel I’ve ever experienced.
This is what the Fontainebleau website is telling me the view looks like. I’m not banking on my window having the same view, but the grounds are absolutely gorgeous.
And this is what Weather.com is telling me the weather will be when I’m there:
Weather forecast while I'm in Miami
Whenever I look at a forecast farther than 48 hours ahead, I hear the voice of Mrs. Ferguson, my middle school science teacher saying (yelling?) weather cannot be accurately predicted a week ahead of time. Whether that is still true, I don’t know, but I like the way it looks regardless. I cannot wait to get there.
I found out I’ll be going to Miami next week for work and I couldn’t be more excited. Miami? In March? Yes, please.
Not only will I be in Miami, but I’ll be working on an event for our Fitness line and the entire weekend will be composed of different types of workouts with celebrity trainers. How perfect is that?
I leave on March 2nd. Right now, it looks like the weather will be in the 80s and sunny. I’m crossing my fingers that’s still what it is when I’m there.
Stay tuned: when I’m back I’ll have a full recap. ; )
