The freezing temperatures around our fair city conjure up images of that veritable wintertime tradition, ice skating. Luckily for those with an itch to strap on a pair of skates and strut their stuff, options abound. Skating is not only fun but also a good workout, and a great way to get "out" and active despite the cold.
Finding affordable workout gear you aren’t ashamed to wear in public is a challenge. To help solve this gym-to-streetwear conundrum, busy local moms Laurie Barokas and Nancy Cirillo have created the NaLa line of comfy, chic workout clothes with a stylish, spirited twist.

What do a pizza cat, venus fly trap with a light saber and a broken heart snake have in common? Other than their out of this world qualities, you can also find these creatures at the Tacoma Museum of Glass. To date, thousands of kids have submitted wildly inventive drawings to the museum for a shot at having their design crafted into a work of glass art.

Wow, Thanksgiving was rough! I tried very, very hard to stick to my guns and, overall, I'm proud that I didn't fall completely off the wagon. I allowed myself little treats over the holiday like a sliver of pumpkin pie, a cookie, and a few bites of amazingly buttery mashed potatoes. I tried to keep my portions of everything else small and tried (kind of) not to drink too much wine. I could have done better in that respect, but I upped my cardio to make up for it, severely punishing myself in the process.
