My Jam

Things That Are My Jam This Week 
This puppy ~ I missed him so much when I was gone last week. 
This dress ~ It’s Bonna’s and it’s gotten good wear over the past 6 years between her, me and Amanda. 


These shoes ~ #moneyspentthatdidntneedtobe #butohwell Can anybody tell me why it’s nearly impossible to find classic but sexy plain black heels?! 
TV on planes ~ I was able to watch Winter Action Sports AND Christmas Vacation on my flight from San Fran to Akron, OH. #timewellspent
This Rental ~ All my rental cars are always silver. And I can never find them in parking lots because EVERYBODY’S cars are silver. This little gem (a Chevy Spark) was a smooth ride, easy on gas, and unmistakable in all parking areas. #travelscore

This crew at Kent State ~ They’re my last graduates of the year for TRX. #proudmama
The color GOLD ~ ’cause it’s my new status on United Airlines! All that damn flying paid off. And with the last flight of the year too. #yessssssss


These Winners ~ Jenn and Jason are headed back west to Wyoming for the winter and I got to say a quick goodbye as they passed through the ‘ville. Have fun, dudes! See you soon : ) 
5 New Rip Trainers! ~ For my bootcampers! It’s gonna be a good January : ) 

What’s your jam this week?

Tetons (hee hee)

It’s been a crazy week. 
So here are some photos 
from the Tetons in Wyoming last week, 
courtesy of my iPhone. 
’cause it’s impossible to use 
the actual camera that I own… 
Happy Friday! 

Me and Jenn

Maxin’ and relaxin’ 

Reunited with her hubs, after a month! 

Road trips are the ish…

Kickass Tunes: The Mend

Who loves kickass, folksy tunes? ME. 
Especially when they’re written and performed by kickass people… and especially when those peeps are from Kentucky… and really especially when I happen to know the artist personally, and can vouch for his awesomeness.
May I present: 
So sit back, 
kick your feet up, 
pretend you’re in Kentucky for a hot second, 
and have a listen: 
*my fave is #9

Climb On! Red River Gorge

I got to go rock climbing with good friends this weekend! FINALLY! It’s been over a year and half since I’ve been climbing outdoors and was sooo glad to have a work-free weekend, and friends with open schedules. It’s been years since we got to climb together. Me, Jason, Andrea, and Adam set out to the Red River Gorge on Saturday. Since I was a hot mess (from not being in good climbing shape), we started with a couple easier warm ups and then went on to ish I couldn’t do. It’s good to get bitch-slapped humbled by rocks every now and then…
Getting set up…

Sorry, but there’s not a great way to get climbing action photos unless you’re taking them from above. So for your viewing pleasure… Jason’s Ass

Adam’s Ass

My ass.

Booyah. I think I was falling…
Adam: “You got me?” JB: “Yeah dude.”

JB getting lifted up and flung into a tree when Adam took a fall. Sweet.

Andrea: Official Cheerleader, Tango-Sitter, and Photographer of the day…

Tango: confused, but intent.

Me and the crack. The crack that took a huge chunk out of my finger. Thanks.
Miguel’s grub and Ale 8s afterward. Good climbing. Good friends. Great Saturday. I hope everybody has a kick ass week ahead!

I love having talented friends. A pair of my good friends will be in Louisville tonight. They are both incredibly talented and both WAY fun to be around. Jenn and Jason Burton are college chums / climbing buddies/ travel companions/ game night competititors/ and total winners (inside joke). Can’t wait to see them and hear some of Jason’s music tonight.

Listening links/Free downloads:
Paper Angels (my personal fave)
Daylight Mercy

Rudyard Kipling @9pm tonight! Come out if you’re local!
