Mingle Monday Blog Hop!

Happy Monday to you, my friends!
I was just glancing at the calendar this morning and could hardly believe my eyes when I saw May! Where has this year gone? Sometimes I feel like the older I get, the days just run together. Are you in the same boat?

Well, I hope your weekend was wonderful and everything you needed it to be. Friday evening was extremely relaxing with delivery pizza and a movie. On Saturday, Adam and I spent the day together shopping for new sleek suits for him and enjoying lunch al fresco on the Houlihans patio.

Saturday night was filled with a fun wedding of our dear chruch friends, and Sunday was a lovely, relxaing, rainy day! Weekend photos and recap coming tomorrow!

This morning was a little rocky when my alarm clock went off... I didn't want to get out of my warm bed! I bet you're in the same boat, so let's kick the week off right with a little blog hop.

Confessional Friday

I know that I've been completely MIA these last 2 weeks - I'm so sorry! With my busy work travel schedule, it's been hard to keep up with the blog, but I promise to do better!! So thankful that it's Friday and the beginning of a great weekend!!

Today I'm linking up with Leslie's Confessional Friday over at A Blond Ambition... join the fun!




1) I'm a complete sap.
I'm sure you all have come to find this is true, but I love all things mushy gushy. Even after dating Adam for years now, there are still sweet things he does that make my heart melt. This morning's sappy moment? A sweet song on youtube sent via gchat.

So I sent this one back... love it. And love him.





2) I have done over 4 loads of laundry in the last 2 weeks. None of them from start to finish. In fact, I have a whole load of CLEAN clothes laying on my laundry room floor unfolded. I'm going to be a terrible housewife someday. True story.


3) So yesterday, Bella Beast and I were almost run over crossing the intersection on our run. We were about 1-2 yards from the other side when this idiot in a car turning right decided to scare us by stopping, then suddenly leaping forward 6 inches from me and my dog. If that wasn't enough (keep in mind we had the pedestrian walk light), he then had the audacity to honk the horn at me.

Well you better believe I slammed both hands on the hood of his car and then pointed my finger straight at him while yelling. Probably not my most self controlled moment, but by golly he sure deserved a smack across the face for trying to run over my little dog!


4) I am incapable of putting mascara on in the morning without getting it all over my face. I'm completely serious. Every time I put it on, I go back with a q-tip to remove the excess goop. I need a mascara how-to class. Or at least invest some time in watching mascara application youtube videos. *sigh*


5) As previously mentioned, I've been a terribly sub par blogger as of late. BUT that's all about to change! This weekend, I vow to take photos so that I can share the weekend fun! I'm also scheduling some blog posts (via the new fancy blogger settings)! That way, even when I'm out of town, I can post on the fly! How are you guys liking the new Blogger template?


Wishing you a wonderful weekend, dolls!

Mingle Monday Weekly Blog Hop!

After a lovely long weekend in Oklahoma City visiting my dear college friends, I am back to the grind today. It was such a spectacular weekend! I had such a blast hanging out with Adam and friends, sipping wine on the patio, eating at tasty restaurants, shopping for a wedding dress for my best friend, and relaxing. Miss it already!

How did your weekend go? Relaxing or busy with fun plans? Well, despite our distain for the start of the work week, I am glad that all of you dropped by! If you're new, please say hi! I'd love to come visit your blog!! :)

Mingle Monday Weekly Blog Hop!

This week is already off to a crazy start... I miss my weekend! The last 3 days have been a complete dream. Tons of naps, a clean house, and baking. Last night I made my Citrus Glazed Almond Poppy Bread, and my whole house smelled amazing. Now, my co-workers and BF love me an extra dose by sharing! :)

How was your weekend? Did you have time to relax and enjoy, or were you on the go? A big thanks for stopping by today. Let's take a small break to forget about the Monday craziness to enjoy some blog hopping! Wishing you many new followers!

Mingle Monday Weekly Blog Hop!

Hoping you all had a spectacular Easter weekend! I was off on Friday, so I sure enjoyed the day - morning workout, lunch date with my handsome boyfriend, and buying Easter lillies before heading to Wichita with my brother!

Home was absolutely fabulous and more relaxing than I had thought. I spent time with the fam, got blondifyed at the salon, saw my friends, and had a lovely Easter Sunday!

I figured we all might be slightly lethargic from the mass amounts of Easter candy consumed, so let's ease into the week with a little blog hop!

Workout Jams

Lately, I have had TONS of requests to share my current running/workout songs. Umm... done and done. I think it's quite possible that we're all getting a little weary of listening to the same tunes over and over again, so perhaps we can swap some ideas? Okay good.

When running or hitting it hard on the elliptical, I enjoy really good, high tempo songs... or else I'm fairly positive that I will just keel over and die of workout boredom. Dramatic much?

But seriously, these tunes keep me extra pumped to keep going and finish my workout strong! So without further adieu...
