Twitching GIrl

On my flight to Minneapolis to celebrate a wedding of high school lovers and to be reunited with all of my friends once again. Decided to take a little nap, you know rest your eyes before the weekend of fun commences. My magazine was sitting peacfully on my lap. Close my eyes and start dreaming about the 31 Heroes WOD i just completed.

And before I knew it, I twitched my magazine off of my lap and I’m awake. So much for getting a nap!!

I love flying. I treat myself to a Starbucks and a new magazine to read. Since the new US weekly wasn’t out (read it on the flight to Colorado last week), I Picked up the new Cooking Light magazine. Boy are we in for a treat. There are SO many delicious recipes I want to try.
