Happy first of June.  Did you have a good weekend?  I was a single lady this weekend because my hubby was out of town on business.  So on Friday I went with my CrossFit girls to a new entertainment craze called ‘Escape the Room’.

It works like this: A group of 8-12 people are locked in a room and a clock begins a 60-minute countdown.  It’s a race against time. One room. One way out, and the clock is ticking. You are given a back story before you enter the room, “The story was that the mob has stolen a valuable work of art from you. You can’t get anybody to help you, so you take it upon yourself that you’re going to get together with some people, and you’re going to go to their warehouse, and you’re going to steal it back.”

We entered the room confident we would succeed, I mean come on we all do CrossFit, can you say competitive.  We worked well as a group, and quickly solved the first few clues, but things got more difficult as time went on.  We found our priceless art, but still had to find the key that would let us escape, but the clock ran out literally seconds from us getting the key.  We were pretty bumbed that we didnt’ succeed, but we always have next time.

    1. Hi!
      I don’t know if you would have any pointers on this.. but I’m going to ask anyway! I would LOVE to do the pork and blueberry in the crockpot so I can shred it, like pulled pork. Do you have any idea how I would want to do this?
