My mind is running all over the place today. I woke up in a weird mood and have just felt out of it ever since. As usual, I blame the weather. Ha.
Speaking of weather, I am so very excited to get a break from the winter and head down to Florida this weekend! I will be flying into Jacksonville and spending a couple of days in St. Augustine to attend my friend’s wedding, and I couldn’t be more thrilled for the weekend of nuptials and celebrations with old friends. I’ll be sure to tell you all about it when I return!
Anyways, before I wander off too much, I have a super random blog post filled with things I have been wanting to share with you. Here’s hoping you find it somewhat entertaining!
10 Random Thoughts and Things
• There are only five more home games left of the NBA season.
Time sure flew this year! Mid-April, I will be wrapping up my sixth season of dancing in the NBA.
It will be a very bittersweet time in my life, and I can’t wait to share more about my experiences with you when it’s over.
• Justin Timberlake tends to drag out the end of his songs.
No? I love the (ridiculously good looking) man and his music, but I have noticed myself skipping over his songs when they come on my Pandora stations lately. There’s just only so many times I can hear “you are, you are, are the love, of my life” in a row before I go crazy. Sorry. I still love you JT!
• Per request, I am filming a tutorial on how I scrunch and tight curl my hair this afternoon.
Assuming it goes well, keep a look out for it on the blog later this week!
I am also planning a post all about spray on and self tanners to help answer some questions I have been getting!
• Currently, I am driving nothing.
Since turning in my lease to the dealership late January, Scott and I have been car shopping. We seriously looked at purchasing vehicles for a few weeks, then decided to put the process on hold.
When I am not working at home, we either share his Jeep or coordinate rides to get to our commitments. It’s not the most convenient thing in the world, but we have been able to save a considerable amount of money on an extra car and insurance payment for two months now! (Ching ching.)
The fact that I have been traveling a lot has also slowed down the process. I have handled not having a car at my disposal pretty well, but am starting to get ancy at the same time. We are hoping to make a move before my birthday at the end of next month!
• I am becoming quite the at-home workout fiend.
I guess I can blame the point above for most of this one. I used to have a set schedule of my trips to the gym that included a handful of group fitness classes and workouts on the cardio equipment every week.
These days, it is just easier for me to take care of fitness business at home. Thank goodness for great workout DVDs that help mix them up!
• I am unusually excited about getting “dressed up.”
Since moving up to Michigan, I have become the ultimate definition of a homebody. I work, work out, eat and entertain myself at home more than anywhere else.
With the exception of practice, home games, and events, I spend my days working in my basement and my nights straightening up and hanging in the house. Either I’m officially
a grandma growing up, or the cold winter season gives this feeling of hibernation to everyone.
Anyways, tonight I am looking forward to getting dressed in something other than gym or dance clothes and enjoying a dinner date!
• I am getting the itch to sign up for races again.
This upcoming October, I am planning on running my second half marathon with a few friends!
The main motivation of me also updating my location information for deal sites like Groupon, Living Social, and Amazon Local last weekend was to receive discounts and info on upcoming fun runs in our area.
Just the other day, Scott mentioned it would be fun to sign up for a few over the summer and I couldn’t agree more.
• I might just turn into “chips and salsa”.
Seriously. I need some sort of intervention over here. At the moment, I can recall eating a version of the snack every single day over the past few weeks. Nothing about that is okay…
• Sunshine makes me happy. So does this song!
While most people are sick of Pharrell’s “Happy” by now, I still find myself rocking out to it every time it comes on. I mean… how can you not shimmy and dance around a little to that beat?
• I adore you guys!
Really. I have been feeling the blog love from you guys a lot over the past few months and it isn’t going unnoticed.
I owe a big shout out and THANK YOU to all of you who participate in Friday Favorites and a big WELCOME to those of you who just started following.
Looking towards the future, I am really excited to see where this blog takes me and greatly appreciate the support I receive from you via comments, shares, and emails. More than you know!
And I guess that just about wraps things up here.
How about you?
