You don’t have to spend a lot of money to have a great summer. I’m sharing some of my favorite summer bucket list adventures to cross off your list.…
fun with friends
I love living at a faster pace, but every now and then it’s good to experience the other extreme of simpler times.
Rabbit Hash is a perfect destination for a Sunday drive. It is a popular destination for motorcyclists because of the winding roads that take you on roller coaster roads minus the tracks.
Rabbit Hash, KY is located about 45 minutes away from downtown Cincinnati.
I’m going to start with a confession. I don’t enjoy cooking unless it’s social or has a theme to inspire. Unfortunately, thinking of what to cook everyday is not festive enough for me to get inspired……but a cooking class that is social and is an excuse to try something new ……..is the perfect way to consider maybe wanting to cook a few more meals in the future. This is where Chef Dan comes in.
Do you ever go on adventures solo? I decided to take advantage of my husband and boys spending the afternoon watching football to sneak away for a few hours to explore the Taft Museum of Art. I understand that we won’t always want to try the same things all the time. One of my friends couldn’t make it due to working later so I went to my adventure destination anyway.
I recently went to the opening reception for the exhibit “Pulp Art”.
Pulp Art is an incredible display of 11 artists creative expressions using paper.
The building alone is a piece of art .
The center also offers affordable art classes for kids.
Several of the works by kids in the program are showcased in the exhibit.
These students could be doing their own show one day. It was really great to meet some of the younger artists who got to tell us about their piece.
I had to snap a picture of the wall even though it wasn’t a piece. I just like exposed brick..
Don’t miss your chance to check out some incredible art!
Pulp Art is an exhibit currently showing from Jan. 11 – Feb. 15 at the Carnegie Visual and Performing Arts Center in Covington, Ky.
You can learn more about the show from their website.

Disclosure: I did receive complimentary admission to the opening. All opinions are my own. I just really love art!
I’ve been zipling several times before but my most recent zipling experience takes the prize. My family and I went on a zipline tour at Adventureworks. Adventureworks is located about 30 minutes outside of Nashville and is tucked away near the Narrows of the Harpeth State Park.
I made a quick trip to Grand Rapids to take in the sites of Art Prize. I enjoyed the event so much while living in Grand Rapids for the last 2 years, that I had to come back and see what the artist would come up with this year. The boys and I joined the Grkids.com team on the Art Prize trolley that made strategic stops all over the downtown .
My first mud race was back in ’96 during the first week of college. Little did I know that I would be joining two friends from college in another mud race 16 years later.
Recently, my friend and I tried an “intro to square dancing class”
I’m sure you are thinking “why would you want to try that?” This is once again where the philosophy of “why not?” comes in.
I’m going to let you in on a little secret. I know of a place that is open to the public where you can play football in a college stadium. This has been a favorite pastime of my boys with their dad for years.
The University of Cincinnati ‘s football stadium is where all of my kid’s fantasies about playing football for college/pros one day are given new life.
During a recent visit to Cincinnati we took some time to stop by and play for a bit.
Due to bad knees, Grandpa was recruited to be all-time quarterback and I was even drafted to a team.
It’s a sad day when your 5 year old knows more about plays and the game than you do.
I was also outrun and outplayed by 5 year olds too. They did let me get my one moment of glory by scoring a touchdown.
That day there were students playing frisbee on the other side of the field and a kicker practicing field goals. All of us still had plenty of room to play.
If the stadium field if occupied when you visit, there is also a practice field close by you can also use to play on.
Check out the University of Cincinnati for directions to the stadium and schedules for the upcoming season.
