Monday Musings

1. We joined the gym on Friday. I went for my first visit on Saturday morning to a Zumba class. I've done Zumba before..which is the only reason I dragged myself out of bed on Saturday morning..I knew I would enjoy it. The last five minutes before cool down we did squats. We would do regular squats, and then pulse them, and then hold the squat...over and over again. The hold was the worst part...feel the burn! The instructor made the motion of playing a violin, to say that we were all a bunch of And I WAS whining. But at the same time, I kept looking at that instructor, who was very toned, and telling myself 'To look like that I will hold this squat!'

This baby may be mine by the end of August (my birthday is in August and someone {i.e. the best husband ever} says I deserve it.

I was awarded!! Holla! Thanks Jobee for the shout out. Here are the rules {why do Awards have rules?!}

Ten things. Ten things. Are there even ten things that I haven't told y'all yet? I think you know just about everything there is to know about me.


1. I have green eyes
2. I ran over our cat, Katie-kitty, when I was a junior in high school. It made my sister very, very unhappy.
3. I did ballet for a hot second when I was very young. I still have my cute pink ballet slippers.
4. I've only owned three cars (including the Explorer) in my adult life.
5. Although I've never lived in any other city, I have moved nine times between the time I was born to now.
6. My husband and I met at a football game.
7. My husband does not think I'm dingy..he even said so just tonight.
8. I was never a "popular" know the ones I'm talking about.
9. I have never had a broken bone.
10. It took me a long time to feel comfortable enough to call my Father-in-law "Dad" and hug him good-bye. I guess I had(have) Daddy issues.

Nominations will have to come another day. I have a few blogs in mind to pass the aware on it. But I iz tired after working out today (the elliptical machine kicked my butt!) and Lola and I need our beauty sleep.


  1. So proud of you for joining the gym! Now if I could only motivate myself... :)

    Looooove that Coach bag! You totally deserve it! I "visited" a couple the other day that I liked, but I didn't buy one (yet!)

    I love the "about me" posts where we get to learn more about our fave bloggers!

  2. Congrats on the award. The purse is nice looking too! Very pretty... I would like a new coach, but that will have to wait for a bit!
