610 – Cheesy Motivation

Welcome to Savoring Our Lives! In this week’s episode we:

Organized Chad’s closet
We Marie Kondo’ed the bedroom a few years ago, but Chad’s side of the room had gotten pretty messy again and even he was done with it. So, we decided to go through all the clothes piles and clean up.

Baked Provolone….mmmmmmmm….

Sat at the end of the bar
It seems like whenever we go out and sit at the end of the bar, magical and deep conversations occur. We visited Story Hill BKC and ended up at the end of the bar. It was fun to see all the servers, the food, and the chefs at work. We enjoyed a bottle of single vineyard Ravenswood wine and talked about what it really means to savor our lives.

Enjoyed quite a bit of irony about our health
As we sat at the bar and ate and drank quite a bit, we talked about how we have not made any progress with our weight loss and exercise. We need to decide and commit to making changes but we can’t find the motivation to make our health a priority.

Went to a comedy show

Sandwich at the Safe House

We went to the Pabst Theatre to see Iliza Schlesinger’s Elder Millennial tour. It was really good and her opening act Hunter Hill was funny, too.  After the brief show we visited the Safe House for a later dinner.

204 – Vegas, baby!

Welcome to Savoring Our Lives!

In this week’s episode, we talk about:

Ruth sprained her ankle in May and it wasn’t getting better so she had an MRI and will start physical therapy this week. Chad had a client on the fourth floor of a building who did not have a functioning elevator.  He was huffing and puffing all the way up.

Las Vegas
DEFCON 25 happened at Caesar’s Palace. Chad spent time getting an electronic badge, while Ruth went in search of fruity tropical drinks. While Chad waited, he started reading Daemon by Daniel Suarez and Ruth ended up at the Dolphin Bar at the Mirage.

Eateries in Vegas we visited included LVB Burgers and Bar at the Mirage, Flour + BarleyVirgil’s Real BBQ,  and our fave, Bin 702 where we hung out with our cool server, Naomi.

Plus, Ruth found a typo at the Forum Shops at Caesar’s Palace and they very graciously corrected it and let her know via Twitter.

Monday Trivia
We’ve been playing Sporcle Live Trivia on Monday nights at the Hale House. It’s been so much fun but our host is moving on. We’re sad, but hoping the new host is just as fun.
