Harlem Globetrotters - 2023 World Tour - REVIEW

The Original Harlem Globetrotters

DISCLOSURE: This is a sponsored post in conjunction with USFamilyGuide.com. I received free admission to see the Harlem Globetrotters for me and my family in exchange for promoting the 2023 World Tour. No further compensation was provided. All opinions are my own.

We had another chance to see the Globetrotters this year. Last year was our first time attending and it was enjoyable, so I was glad to be offered another chance to go see them play.

I had to work the day of the event, so we arrived just in time to buy some snacks from the concession stand and find our seats before it started.

My kids aren't super into sports at all but they had a good time. The comedic interludes and ball tricks helped make it more entertaining than just a regular basketball game 

Happy New Year!

Wednesday, January 4, 2023


I say this every January, but, how is it 2023? That doesn't even look right to me.

Every year, around this time, I reflect back on the previous year and set some goals for the New Year. I started out last year with a sprained ankle, which actually turned out to be a fracture. It took a long time to get over that injury. I was still doing PT during the summer. So, a lot of what I was focused on, especially at the beginning of the year, was just getting better and being able to walk and drive again.

Last year, I set out to continue my fitness journey, work to become independent and to spend more time with my friends and family. Looking back, I feel I did a fairly good job at accomplishing those goals. Once I was able to walk again, I started working out again and even ended the year completing an 8 week Get Fit and Moving Challenge from Chloe Ting. Though, I did end up hurting my knee, so we'll see what happens with that. I also feel like I progressed in my goal to be more independent. I'm not 100% where I want to be, but I'm getting there. As for spending time with friends and family, I definitely feel like I took more time to hang out with people or at least reach out to people more regularly and I will continue to do that this year.

So, for goals this year...

1)  Continue my fitness journey - Yes, this is the same goal as last year. I started working out regularly in 2020 and I want to continue that this year. I want to work on getting stronger and more toned and maintaining my weight. I plan to continue my home workouts, but also look into adding some other physical activity. A friend and I were talking about maybe taking Pilates together. She also has been trying to get me to go to her Orange Theory classes. So we'll see!

2) Make more time for my hobbies - I find it relaxing to knit and crochet. So, this year, I want to make more time for that. I enjoy making things. I like making things to wear and little toys for the kids. And I feel like the more I do it, the better I'll get at it. Goal is to try and do some knitting or crocheting at least once a week. Instead of scrolling mindlessly through social media, I should be working on my knitting or crocheting. 

3) Be more social - This goes along with the goal last year to spend more time with people I care about. I can be so antisocial and often turn down invites to hang out. I'm an introvert and sometimes I'm happiest just being by myself. But I will make an attempt this year to hang out more. Do things with people. Make lunch and dinner dates. 

4) Travel more - I love traveling. We usually go to same places every year. This year, I'd love to have a chance to visit somewhere new. I always hear stories from people about all the places they've visited, and I get so jealous. I need to see if I can travel somewhere different this year. Start out with something small. Maybe a weekend trip to a city that I haven't been to. A solo trip has also been on my bucket list. So maybe this will be the year! We'll see!

I think that's a good start to some goals. Hopefully I can accomplish these. 

Do you set goals for yourself at the beginning of the year? What are you hoping to accomplish in 2023?
