girl vs planet One girl. One planet. One experience at a time. Wed, 25 Feb 2015 19:41:25 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Photography Tue, 24 Feb 2015 21:13:56 +0000 While I don’t consider myself a professional photographer by any means, it has become somewhat of a hobby of mine. I love to take pictures while traveling, and I have also had the opportunity to shoot some concerts and major music events such as Electric Zoo and Life in Color. Feel free to check out galleries of some […]]]> 0 Fangirling Tue, 24 Feb 2015 03:20:30 +0000 I am pretty much the epitome of a fangirl. And not just about one thing. There are so many things that I love and am interested in. Most of my friends know that I’m a huge Star Wars fan. I have been for a while. I stood in line to be one of the first […]]]> 0 My Take on Fifty Shades of Grey Wed, 18 Feb 2015 17:05:28 +0000 I seriously debated on whether to post this at all or not. I know there are a lot of opinions out there about this movie, and the book series for that matter. I will start by saying I have read all of the books, and I went to see the movie this weekend. I’ll get […]]]> 0 Arizona Strong Beer Fest 2015 Tue, 17 Feb 2015 22:53:32 +0000 If you’ve been following along for more than a year, you know that Ricky and I have attended the Arizona Strong Beer Festival every year since we’ve lived here. It’s the only beer festival (and there are a LOT!) that we will attend EVERY year. It’s, well, pretty much the best beer festival in Arizona. […]]]> 0 Working Out at Koko FitClub Thu, 12 Feb 2015 16:53:46 +0000 So, one of the things that I mentioned in my previous post about finding balance was my gym. See, I HATE going to the gym. I hate working out, period. I am mostly an indoor, use your brain, kind of girl. Being active is generally not my thing. I do go hiking once in a […]]]> 5 Finding Balance Fri, 09 Jan 2015 20:33:46 +0000 So I promised when I posted my annual review that I would also post something once the new year started about my goals for 2015. Resolutions don’t seem to work, as everyone knows how we all joke about the gyms being more full of people in January that are gone again by February or March. So I […]]]> 0 Review: Homeland Season 4 Finale Tue, 23 Dec 2014 20:28:08 +0000 To begin with, I must add the necessary disclaimer… SPOILER ALERT. If you watch Homeland and have not yet seen the Season 4 finale, stop here. Go no further… I don’t want to ruin it for you. Now that that’s out of the way… If you follow me on pretty much any social media site, […]]]> 0 Review: The Marvel Experience Mon, 22 Dec 2014 19:55:55 +0000 Last week I heard about this event that was coming to Phoenix – The Marvel Experience. As much of a geek as I am, I was surprised that it was the first time I had heard about it. Apparently, Phoenix is only the first stop on a U.S. tour that the event is on. It sounded […]]]> 0 2014 Annual Review Tue, 16 Dec 2014 19:48:27 +0000 As a now committed attendee of World Domination Summit, I tend to follow along quite a bit with Chris Guillebeau‘s blog. Every year he does an annual review, which I think is a good idea to put things in your life into perspective, both to give you some idea of how your year went and what you accomplished, […]]]> 0 San Diego Zoo Thu, 27 Nov 2014 16:17:27 +0000 It has become a tradition for us to head to San Diego every Thanksgiving. This year, Ricky played golf on Thanksgiving, so I took advantage of the opportunity to check out the San Diego Zoo. It’s supposed to be one of the best zoos in the country, and it didn’t disappoint. I went with our […]]]> 0
