Dear AT&T, thank you for getting me into Shape.

Dear Shape AT&T, You have forged some kind of magical energy and heart-pounding go-getting drive through my veins. The real question is…how come I have never heard of you? Shape is the AT&T Tech and Entertainment Expo. This year, I had the fortune of joining the Meetup group “Let’s Make Movies LA” right in time for them to give out free tickets to this amazing event held at the Warner Brothers Studios in Los Angeles, CA. Big shout out to JB for hooking us up. I was like a little kid in the candy store. Wide-eyed with a goofy smile, I got to check out all the cool sets and back lots of the most iconic movies and TV shows like the Big Bang Theory and Pretty Little Liars. And even scored “Gunther’s” role on the set of the iconic comedy show “Friends”.

Why Not Now with Min-D!

There are many “scary” numbers like 666 or 4.  My scary number is 39.  Yes, 39 gives me a lot of anxiety.  39 is the end of your 30s!  For me, it’s the last year to squeeze every ounce of immaturity out before the start of the dreaded 40s.  When you turned 30, did you feel old?  I sure didn’t.  All the way up to 38, I was like, “I can still HANG with the 20-year-olds”.  But now, I can’t help but notice white hair, dimples and brown spots spreading through nukes and cracks of my body like chicken pox.  And where did all my pumped up, hyper sensitive adrenaline run off to? Nowadays, it’s a win just to go hiking once a month. Ahhhhh…the dirty signs of growing old.  I turned 39 a couple of months ago…I’m totally scared. I’ve always lived my life willing to put myself out there and experience new things. So shouldn’t I know my true passion by now? I am a 39 year old wife, with no kids, a …

My First YouTube Video! 3 Days in New York City!

My girlfriends and I went on a spontaneous trip to NYC on Memorial weekend.   I booked this cute apartment on AirBnB perfectly situation in the upper eastside.  From the pictures on AirBnB, the stairs in front of the buildings reminded me so much of the intro to Laverne & Shirley.   I love that song – “Making Dreams Come True”.   I couldn’t help myself, I just had to make my first YouTube video with Laverne & Shirley theme song covered by yours truly.   Check out it out and please comment or subscribe or both!  And then check out some of my favorite places in NYC below to get ideas for your next trip to NYC! Food: Gray’s Papaya – Great hotdogs and the papaya drinks…YUM. Levian Bakery – Must try it, the muffins are on steroids! Things we did: Silent Disco @ South Street Seaport – I never knew dancing with headphones with a bunch of strangers with their headphones can be such a fun experience.   I seem to concentrate more on my own awesome moves than people watching which …
