There are several adventures around the Tri-State that will get your heart racing. I’m highlighting extreme adventures that you can try from each state that equal the thrill seekers trifecta of fun.
Looking for a gift that keeps on giving?
Why don’t you give someone the gift of adventure instead?
Here are a few reasons why you should consider giving an experience gift instead of a physical one.
I met Tirzah and her husband Troy in college and thanks to Facebook, I’ve been able to keep up with their adventures since then. I love their passion for adventure and connecting with nature.
Troy is a photographer and his incredible images create instant wanderlust. Tirzah has an adventurous spirit and a heart of gold. After viewing pictures of their trip to Hawaii, I invited them to share about their bucket list adventures during their visit to the islands of Oahu and Kauai.

I discovered Geeky Explorers because of their amazing pictures on instagram. Their profile also mentioned their blog website which intrigued me even more because they sold everything to travel by RV across the country. I immediately knew that I wanted to interview them for the blog. Tricia and Keith graciously agreed to meet me at Coffee Emporium before they started the next leg of their journey. They were fascinating in person too. I always admire people who take the leap of faith to live their dreams.
Swimsuit season is just around the corner and all of this extended winter weather has affected my waistline. Especially, because I need to eat healthier. Time to start working on a healthier lifestyle and Chick-fil-A has some ways to help.
Chick-fil-A has a nutritional guide available online or in stores to help guide you in your meal selection process.
You can eat healthy AND still enjoy the taste of your food!
Did you know that Chick-fil-A has grilled chicken menu options?
Make sure you check out the new Chick-fil-A Grilled Chicken Sandwich, Grilled Chicken Club Sandwich, Nuggets, Improved Grilled Chicken Cool Wrap and Grilled Market Salad – much improved flavor.
Chick-fil-A Smoothies are less than 300 calories and you can add a cup of spinach or carrot to them!
I don’t love veggies and I added spinach to my pineapple mango smoothie and couldn’t taste the difference.
* The Peach Milkshake will make it’s debut on April 14th.
Don’t forget to try their catering menu for your next event or meeting.
In February, I created two recipes using Chick-fil-A catering menu items. (Buffalo Chicken Wrap and Homemade Ice cream sandwiches) The process was really easy. I just ordered my items off of the menu and set up a time to pick them up. Chick-fil-A also offers delivery service as well.
The other Chick-fil-A ambassadors also made some great recipes.
“Optimistic Mommy” made a Chicken Salad wrap using Chick-fil-A Chicken Salad & Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup using Chick-fil-A nuggets.
“It’s Free at Last” made Chicken Breakfast Casserole Recipe using Chick-fil- A nuggets and a Tasty Fresh Fruit Pizza.
