Being this is a "Naked Cowgirl Update" Blog, I guess I need to back up for a second and state the obvious (or apparently not so obvious to those NOT on +Facebook+), since I wasn't ready to publicly announce it back in my last entry the beginning of June....Yes, +Naked Cowboy and I have been broken up since Easter...that was in April! We have both moved on and remain friends with a good working relationship, as I am still a licensed franchisee of Naked Cowboy Enterprises.
June 2, 2012
I attended my annual AAAI/ISMA Fitness Convention in Atlantic City, NJ in which I attend workshops and lectures that keep me current with the latest fitness trends and safety issues regarding Health and Fitness, as well as renewing all of my Fitness Certifications. I had the pleasure of taking a class with +Insanity DVD star Sean T...loved his class! OK, so it's NOT a "Naked Cowgirl" related post...but it is who I am and what allows me to wear a bikini in the middle of New York City ALL YEAR LONG!!!
June was a busy month for me not only teaching classes and clients at the gym, working at the hospital, and going to Times Square, but I also taught some CPR Classes AND continued to squeeze in a couple of guitar lessons at Rutherford Music Exchange and voice lessons with @carlavirola.
Times Square Appearances in June: 6/1, 6/9, 6/14, 6/23, 6/24, 6/28,6/29
June 24th - NYC Gay Pride Parade - I walked the parade along with the @MercyForAnimals group and was so excited to be able to finally do more to show my support as a vegan than just sending money to the organization. I met some awesome people not only in the MFA group, but other people in or at the parade.
Times Square Appearances in July: 7/2, 7/4, 7/6, 7/8, 7/9, 7/10, 7/13, 7/27

*July 21-26 I went to Florida to visit family and friends...no Cowgirl that week
July 31st - Filming of "The Meat Puppet"produced by Keith Collins and Blaze Kelly Coyle @silverphoenix11 and executive producer Joe Valenti. The film was written by Joseph and Billy Pepitone.
August Times Square Appearances: 8/3, 8/5, 8/11 (Dominican Parade...a busy day in Times Square!), 8/17, 8/18, 8/24, 8/25
Aug.19th - I blew off all work and the gym to spend a day with my new guy doing "normal" things, like taking a ferry to Governor's Island and "being a tourist". It's VERY hard for me to take a whole day OFF from Times Square AND the gym when I don't have to work at the hospital or one of the gyms. Once I get over the guilt of not being "Productive" for the day, I actually really do enjoy myself. Being with a native New Yorker now, I'm always being told that "There is more to New York than TIMES SQUARE"! He is right :)
September Times Square Appearances: 9/1, 9/2, 9/3, 9/9, 9/16
October Times Square Appearances: 10/3, 10/4, 10/5, 10/13, 10/21, 10/26, 10/31
Sunday, Oct 21 was Breast Cancer Awareness Day so I changed into a pink bikini to show support to the cause that has not only hit my family, but that I see much too often working in a hospital. Photo by Dez Santana Photography...Thanks Dez!
November Times Square Appearances: 11/10, 11/11, 11/22, 11/24, 11/25
November 11 - Veteran's Day was a very Patriotic day in Times Square, filled with Military Service men and women, US War Veteran's, as well as everyone coming to enjoy the day. I love seeing retired military men and women in their uniforms and wearing them with pride:)

***Does it seem odd that I was in Times Square more during the coldest month than I was during the summer???? This photo was taken with my friend Ameer Boccilli who owns the Hot Dog Stand on the corner of 45th and Broadway.
December 29th - SNOW Day...fun!
December 31st...New Year's Eve!
I have to say that this year had quite a lot of change and transition in it. I'm hoping 2013 brings many exciting and prosperous things for everyone reading this and everyone in my life. I'm sure I left out some really cool stuff that I've done over the last six months, but some of that was on purpose:) If you LIKE my blog, please subscribe to it, share it, and feel free to comment. Happy New Year!
