Five on Friday

Happy Friday everyone!

I decided to participate in this lovely link up for the first time ever. I always enjoy reading what others come up with so why the heck not?!


I officially can never get a blog post written at work. It doesn’t matter if I know what I want to say or even if I have it pre-written.

It. Just. Never. Works.

Fate forces me to be a good employee I guess. ha!


I’m signing T and myself up for two expensive 5ks that are in the next 6-8 weeks. We need motivation and these ones look like fun. One has an amazing race bag and the other just looks awesome. Who doesn’t want to be covered in neon dust that’s going to make a huge mess everywhere? Plus, it’s a tax write off….

hahahah like I make enough money to really need to worry about that.


I have a randomly smelly dog.

Lorelei has been getting extra stinky the past couple months and I can’t figure out what the deal is. I thought it was coming from her ears so I called the vet and described the symptoms and they agreed that it was probably an ear infection. Her ears looked clean to me.. but I’m no vet. So I took her in and the vet agreed her ears are clean and not infected. This dog is literally my child and always with me so I know she hasn’t been getting into anything in the yard. I’ve been bathing her the same amount as always and she JUST started stinking! so weird!

Did my dog hit puberty or something??


I’m driving myself crazy with the wedding venue picking. I am going to look at a couple more tomorrow and then I think it’s time to just make a choice already.

But what if I choose wrong?? Major pressure here!


Diet bets really do work!! Turns out I’m way money motivated.. big surprise 🙂

I got down to 192.4 this month.

I couldn’t be more pleased, I ate pretty well most of the time but got virtually no exercise. (Aside from all the walking I do on a daily basis- I have a fairly active job). This number does include a short 3 day vacation too. I didn’t eat particularly well on vacation but I did make it up with two solid days walking.

I’m not dummy, I know I need to get moving. Enter the races I signed up for.

I do have to admit that while I’m glad that the diet bet worked for so many people I’m also a little disappointed… I wanted to win a bigger pot! haha

Happy weekend everyone!

Hello Hello… Thanks to anyone who has stuck around these desolate parts 🙂

I kind of want to say that I wish I had a better excuse to give y’all about why I haven’t been blogging, but that isn’t true. Life has just been incredibly insane and I’ve been rolling with it. There has been lots of not so fun thing (family in the hospital), lots of long nights between 2 jobs + trying to see family once in awhile + somewhat maintain a house +plan a wedding + the billion other day to day things.. but there has also been lots of fun things. I took a quick trip to San Diego with an old friend, nights out on the town, and FINALLY getting the house the way I want it decorating wise.

This is kind of a lame post to come back with, but T is in class late tonight and I plan I recapping a bunch of wedding stuff, San Diego and how Skinny Meg’s Diet Bet went… oh I didn’t tell you guys about that either?? oops! haha

I hope everyone’s been well, I did absolutely nothing this weekend other than catch up on everyone’s blog.. everyone has been busy! Half marathons galore- y’all rock!!!

Tuesday Check In

Soo.. as I mentioned yesterday, life has been extra crazy as of lately. I tend to let blogging go first when I get busy, and I need to quit that. It’s one of the few relaxing “for me” things I do. Live and learn I guess. The short of it is: the week before last Grandpa was very sick. So I spent most of the week in a hospital room making sure that he got everything he needed. He’s better now, thank God. Then last week was a mad game of trying to catch up on two full time jobs worth of work and balance some semblance of a healthy life! Good Times 🙂

I did join Skinny Meg’s Diet bet that started earlier this month. I also talked T into it. It turns out that we are both very $$ motivated. We finally got our eating together 🙂 Yay healthy dinners EVERY night! I’ll do a recap of my weight and measurements at the end of the month, but so far it’s going well. I do have a wedding preview, trip to San Diego and a bunch of trips up North to work on cabin stuff to factor into it though.

Pretty sure this is the most boring, uninspired post I’ve ever written but it’s all I’ve got today.

I will leave ya with some quotes I like from pinterest, cause it’s 4:30 on Tuesday afternoon and it’s all I got 🙂
