Random Ramblings

I watched Football yesterday. Aren't ya proud?

Washington State University vs. University of Washington.


It made me think of all my Southern blog friends - because you girls represent when it comes to the game. When I read your weekend recap posts during football season you girls always look adorable. Perfect hair, perfect make up, perfectly color coordinated outfits - ya'll seem to know exactly what you are doing and rock it. 

I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving - I sure did. It was great spending the day with family, eating delicious food and relaxing!

This is me in Kindergarten! What a cute pilgrim I was!

I have so many things to be truly thankful for and I need to spend more time giving thanks. It breaks my heart thinking of those who spend the holiday season alone.. spend some extra time practicing patience, smiling at a stranger, buying someone coffee.. You never know someones life situation and I just wish we all could be friends.

Four day weekends should be the normal. I wish,

Tomorrow I am making these yummy energy bites! I made them years ago but Pinterest reminded me of these treats.. and they are SO easy to make!

Today I had a personal training session at the gym. I explained to him that I am loving all the workouts he is teaching me but I hate how self conscious I feel when I am in the middle of the room for everyone to watch.  He reassured me everyone else felt the same way and were only paying attention to themselves - which I do believe. BUT of all the things he makes me do after our conversation... He made me do this ab workout called the DEAD BUG???!!!!! 

Basically you alternate your arms and legs each rep and flap around looking like a struggling bug??? Talk about feeling self conscious......

I just watched the movie Country Strong. I was impressed by miss Blaire Waldorf's (Leighton Meester) singing skills. Pretty decent movie for a Black Friday deal at Target! 

And now I am off to decorate our Christmas tree!! I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!

  11. One year on Thanksgiving my wife announced, "I think we should watch a football game together." Keep in mind she had never before seen a football game. ANY football game. She didn't make it halfway through the first quarter, but I appreciated the idea! :)

  13. hahaha, funny you posted something about the dead bug. I gave this to a client today while on top of a bosu ball and he couldn't stop shaking. Eventually by the third set his central nervous system woke up and realized what it needed to do and it became less shaky. Love this exercise.
    Thanks for linking up to the Empowered Living hop.

  14. I think I have that recipe or something similar. I just don't have any of the "wet" ingredients, or maybe I do...I need to check. Yay for football! I am really sad it is starting to wind down though. It truly is my favorite sport. ;) Thanks for stopping by my blog!
