GETTING TO KNOW HEATHER KENDALL…:) 

"I grew up in the booming metropolis of Greentown, IN. There's a Subway there now. It's kind of a big deal :) I went to  school at Eastern and graduated in 1992. Later on I attended IUK for 5 semesters. I couldn't decide if I wanted to study people's heads in Psychology or stud bones in Archeology, so I dropped out and started working. I went back in 2002 and got my license in Massage Therapy. I have one sister, Wendy, who is 6 years older than me. I didn't really have any hobbies growing up, unless you count sneaking out of the house and going to rock concerts I wasn't allowed to go to".

"I got married in 1999 to an incredibly handsome man who I've known since since we were 15. His name is Jason, but you'll only hear me to refer to him as Kendall. It's been that way for 30 years. We've got 2 kids, Liam, who's 18 and works in our detail department, and we have Lily, who is 15, going on 25. We've got 3 dogs. We adopted 2 brothers Jax, and Nero (Heinz 57 dogs) and then we have an ever barking, happy Chihuahua named Bear". 

"Hobbies would be still going to concerts, even though I don't have to sneak out now and we LOVE to go kayaking and traveling. I've been to 25 states so far and hope to see them all one day. On my bucket list is to retire and either buy a skoolie (a school bus home) and just spend our time traveling and being out in nature or I'd be happy with a really small cottage either on a mountain or by the see with NO neighbors".

"I've been doing warranty for about 5 years now. I've worked in warranty, reception, Parts, and managed a body shop. I'm certified with Honda, Toytoa, and GM".   - thanks Heather :)

KEEP YOUR HEART HEALTHY THROUGH EXERCISE

Did you know that exercising regularly could help you fight off chronic conditions and diseases? Exercise can help control your blood pressure, blood sugar and weight, raise your 'good' cholesterol, and prevent diseases such as cancer, Type 2 diabetes and heart disease. According to the AHA, you should do these three exercises to improve your heart health;

  1. Aerobic activity: Get at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity every week.
  2. Muscle strengthening: Incorporate muscle-strengthening exercises at least 2 days a week.
  3. Flexibility training: Flexibility training is important too, but it is frequently neglected, resulting in increased tightness as you age and become less active.

GETTING TO KNOW ADAM RICHARDSON

Here is Adam Richardson's story in his own words…:)

"I was born in Kokomo, IN as a twin with my sister Ashley Richardson. We moved a lot growing up. I attended Tri-Central  for most of my schooling and graduated from Kokomo High School".

"I have 2 sisters and 3 brothers, all older than me (yes twin sister Ashley was born before me) :) I loved playing football, basketball, baseball, and wrestling. I also did shot put and threw discus in track. The most competitive sport I played and loved with a passion was football".

"I now share a blessed family with my lady Chasity, her two children, Noah and Jocelyn (who I raise as my own), and my  hands-on son (my mini me) Izaiah".

"We do a lot as a family, from going to sporting events, to family  vacations, whether it be small or big. We try to have a family night one day a week with our busy schedules". 

"On my bucket list is to travel the world and experience the new things and opportunity it brings me".

TRUTH AND LIE:

  1. I've worked for the dealership since high school.
  2. I was in a wheel chair for almost 2 years from a car accident.
  3. I'm a hard working provider.

Thank you so much for sharing your story Adam!


BUFFALO CHICKEN DIP

INGREDIENTS:

1 1/4 lb chicken tenders 2 cloves garlic minced

1 tbsp olive oil plus sea salt and pepper

1/2 medium onion chopped 1 tbsp ghee or cooking fat

2/3 cups mayo 2/3 cup coconut cream

1 tbsp mustard 1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp onion powder 1 tsp dried dill

1/2 tsp smoked paprika 1/3 cup hot sauce

1 1/2 tbsp fresh lemon juice

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place chicken on baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for 15-20 minutes until cooked through, remove from oven and set aside to cool. Lower oven temperature to 350 degrees.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a small skillet over medium heat and add ghee. Sauté onions until soft, then add the garlic powder, onion powder, dill, paprika, hot sauce, and lemon juice until smooth. Shred chicken breast, then add to mixture along with cook onions and garlic.
  3. Stir to combine, then transfer to a small casserole dish and bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes until the outer edges bubble and dip is heated through. Serve warm with veggies, chips, or crackers. 
  4. Enjoy! 


PREVENTING SLIPS AND TRIPS TIPS :)

  1. Keep floors clean and dry - wet floors are a slip hazard and also promote mold, fungi, and bacterial growth, which can cause an infection.
  2. Remove excess clutter from aisles, exits, and passageways.
  3. Avoid running cords down hallways; use ceiling or floor plugs close by instead.
  4. Wear non-slip footwear to prevent falls on slippery and wet surfaces.
  5. Use ladders to reach objects up high versus stacking small boxes or using unsteady stools.
