Trying something new.

Never one to shy away from an adventure big or small, “Days of our Lives” star Alison Sweeney (Sami) managed to find the time over her hectic holidays to try something new: snowboarding. “This definitely took me out of my comfort zone, but it’s so good to do things like that,” Ali blogged. To see some video of her tearing down the slopes, be sure to visit her blog and leave a comment about how you plan to challenge yourself this year.
