A Moment for Me & Julie

Today, my Sister, Julie, and I attended The Indiana Heart Hospital's 2nd annual "A Moment for Me" event. What a wonderful way to share the morning. It is always a treat to spend time with Julie. I love my big sister, and do not see her near enough. To spend time together and learn about being healthier was a great chance to catch up. We also got some pampering as well.

The program consisted of cardiac screenings, cooking demonstrations, meal time planning, cardiovascular risk factors class, skin care, Zumba classes, Pilates classes, facials, and chair massages. You basicly signed up to take 3-4 of these choices as well as visit vendors and have an incredible heart healthy lunch. We had Mellanie True Hills, Author of "A Woman's Guide to Saving Her Own Life", as Keynote speaker, as well as the Director for the "Healthy Hearts Center" here in Indiana, Cindy Adams,RN PhD. We also had the pleasure of meeting and listening to Coutni Hall, Miss Indiana USA, and Bailee Zimmerman, Miss Indiana Teen USA.

This was my second trip to this event. Last year I went solo, and was tickled to share this with Julie this year. They generously gave us much bang for the buck ($20 per person). We were given a bright canvas goodie bag filled with stuff, including Ms. Hills book. Hopefully Juls and I will make this a yearly event. If you are local and have the opportunity, join us next year. It is really a great day.

What a wonderful event and for a cool price too. You guys are lucky in big cities to have these opportunities. My doctor and hospital are sixty miles away. We do pay a big price to live in small hamlets.
