Blue Sparrow Updates

Whew! It’s hard to believe I posted my first post on April 1st of this year. What a crazy ride it’s already been! I was so honored to be asked by FW Weekly to write a blog for them after Eric Griffey had seen just two of my post. He probably deeply regrets that decision now! To see my latest blog post with the FW Weekly, click here. And thank you so much Eric for putting up with me!

I had a gorgeous logo designed by Marcie Finney Designs, who is also the owner of Mustard Seed Jewelry, which I am also happy to offer on my blog.

And having said that… Josh over at Made In Fort Worth is working diligently at giving The Blue Sparrow Blog a make over, and very soon it will be very easy to purchase Mustard Seed Jewelry from this site!

And finally… the last member of the team came on today. Kristen Ballard with FWemedia. I am so looking forward to working with her.

Water and Twerking

The next two post for Fort Worth Weekly are both up, and I just thought I’d share them with y’all!

The first one was for my water challenge diet… to see how I did on that, click here. It involves me drinking a gallon of water a day. I usually don’t drink water at all, so that was a challenge, especially for my bladder. My liver was quite happy about it. While it lasted.

The second one was just posted today! It’s my experience Twerking with Aubree Blomgren at Force Fitness gym in North Richland Hills. To read my article, click here. This week at the gym they are offering an amazing Kids Camp. They even have drop in pricing. Check out the full schedule of classes and everything this place has to offer. The courses are taught by an amazing staff who not only challenge your physical body, but also the mind. Aubree has figured out how to bring mind, body, and spirit together with her specialized skill set mastered over 15 years.

I am begging Aubree to start teaching in Fort Worth this fall and we have something we are working on which I am so excited about! Stay tuned for details.

Thank you everyone who takes the time to read this. And for all those who message me, comment, stop me when they see me and mention a post… You have no idea how much your support means to me.

The Gym and I

I am kind of speechless… This is something I have been working on/dreaming about for a long time, and it really happened! I am excited to announce I am an official blogger for FW Weekly! Thank you Eric Griffey for reading this blog and thinking I could write for you. I am humbled and truly grateful.

I was approached by Eric after he ran across this blog. I had posted two post. He got a hold of me and ask me if I would be interested in writing for the FW Weekly. The answer was  an unequivocal ‘yes’! He ask if we could meet so he could pitch me three ideas. I had to pinch myself. Never in one billion years would I have ever thought anyone would want to ‘pitch’ me anything.

Eric went through three options and I ultimately picked option two. A humorous take on diet and fitness. The next few months were spent gathering material and trying to come up with a title for the blog. The Gym and I was selected, and you can click here to read my very first post!

*Once I figure out to post that blog post on this blog post I will do that. #techchallengedrighthere Until then… again, you can click here.

Did that just happen?

Wow. I’m blown away. I started this blog a week ago, and by day three I had been contacted by a high school classmate that works for Fort Worth Weekly. He said he had read my blog {all two of the post} and was curious if I would like to blog for them. After I jumped up and down and Facebook{ed} all about it and called everyone I know as if I had just gotten engaged, again, or an Oscar… I replied and said, Yes. Yes I would be interested. They even said they would pay me. That’s crazy. But I’m fairly crazy… so I guess it works. I cannot wait until I get to start. I’m slightly overzealous. And by slightly I mean I want to turn in a piece tomorrow. They are not in a rush, but I am so like, feeling like a teenager with my first crush, I just had to shout it out to the world!!! Okay… I must act cooler… I must act cooler… That’s a tall order for me. Hmph.
