Well, Lehigh Valley residents and visitors to our area, the Civic Theatre of Allentown is certainly a gem!

The performance of Beauty and the Beast was absolutely mesmerizing! My four-year-old niece, who has never seen a live stage performance, was so entertained she could not take her eyes off the stage. She clapped after every song, and at one point leaned over and whispered, “I like Belle.”

OK, anyone who knows my husband, Don, from his Allentown days can picture him riding his road bike all over town. He even biked to Indiana in five days! 

Fast forward to him moving up to Moore Township, a bicyclist’s dream! Don had his tandem tuned up, and together we set out to explore the area I’ve lived in since 1994.

One of my latest passions has become buying local. I like the idea of supporting local people and families with my purchases as opposed to some conglomerate mega-mart.

One way I try to practice what I preach is at local farmers’ markets. Since I live in the Easton area, the market I make it to most often is the Easton Farmers’ Market in Centre Square. It takes place every Saturday morning from 9 a.m – 1 p.m. and runs from spring right through fall. It claims to be the “oldest continuous open-air farmers’ market in the U.S.,” or something like that.

It's over. I can get back to a normal sleep pattern. I'm so excited, as is the majority of the east coast who have daytime jobs! Yes, I'm talking about the World Series.

The highlight for me was having two tickets to the World Series Premiere Party, hosted by Nacci Printing, at Coca-Cola Park last Wednesday. Even with temps in the 30s, my son and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to watch the first game of the series on the big screen in center field.

At some point in the past five years I’ve turned into a shopaholic of sorts, and lucky for me, there are many things in my life right now that require big purchases:– home furnishings– wedding accessories– "work" clothes– a new purse or pair of shoes I must haveAnd Christmas is coming up too, so I can add gifts to my list (hey, it’s only two months away people).

My favorite place to shop where I can find all those things is The Promenade Shops at Saucon Valley. I love going there because they have everything from unique boutique shops to name brands like L.L. Bean and American Eagle.

Football fans in this area are in a frenzy over the Eagles, who are in the hunt for a playoff spot, and Penn State, who is vying for a shot to play for the National Championship. Oh, yeah, and the Phillies are about to bring the first Championship to Philadelphia in 25 years if they can wrap up the World Series tonight.

With sports on the brain, I’d like to shed some light on a non-traditional sport that Lehigh Valley offers: disc golf.

With Halloween right around the corner, I thought I would tell the whole world (yes, I think our blog is that popular) that I’m a scaredy-cat. I could not possibly name all my fears, so I’ll give you a short list, in no particular order:

  • noises
  • crowds
  • scary movies
  • ghosts
  • haunted houses
  • imaginary people on the deck of my house ready to break in
  • shark attacks
  • bear attacks
  • dog attacks

Basically I’m afraid of all animals attacking me. I think everyone who knows me thinks I’m overreacting about the whole fear of animals thing, but a few select family members witnessed my fear firsthand over the weekend.

Aside from Gone In 60 Seconds and The Fast and the Furious, the whole “need for speed” thing has never really appealed to me. So when a bunch of us from the office went to Lehigh Valley Grand Prix to race some go-karts, I was willing to try it (since I had never driven a go kart before), but I wasn’t jumping up and down in excitement.

After we got suited up for safety, we entered the “arena” and got into our assigned carts. Once I got used to my knees being scrunched up in what I considered to be an unnatural position, I took off like a bullet! Vrrrrroooommmmmmm!
