Humpday Confessions

Vodka and Soda
Yo, VIP, Let's kick it!
Ice Ice Baby, Ice Ice Baby
All right stop, Collaborate and listen
Ice is back with my brand new invention.
Actually, I am not back with a brand new invention, as I do this every Wednesday with Kathy. But, that song seemed appropro, as the ASL ice bucket challenge is going around and one of the schools I work in got challenged by a local hospital... and I am pretending like I am not a part of that building. Mostly, because I don't want to donate money to 2 buildings (the buildings are trying to raise $500). Judge me all you want, but working in schools eats your money.
I am deliberately wearing all of my cutest clothes because I am in 2 new schools this year and I gotta look fly. That, and I want people to know I am still young and hip. But, as my boo thang likes to say, my new car smell has faded. I work with all women and I know we all secretly judge each other. I gotta make a good first impression. Either way, I know I have resting bitch face and somehow have to give people a reason to approach me.

Yesterday, one of the dogs had explosive poo all over the kitchen floor... and apparently ate it then vomited it up. WTF?! So, me being the mature adult that I am, I clean up as much as possible then text G that he has to shampoo the carpet where the vom was. Then I proceeded to hide in the bedroom to avoid the fucking disgusting smell of poo vom until he got home. I hate having dogs.

Now, all I want is for the weekend to get here, so I can truly do nothing. And by do nothing, I mean wear no pants all day.
What do you got going for you this week?

Look Over Here!

Today I'm not living at Tracie Everyday, instead you can find me over at Tiffany's. She is out of town taking baby J to meet his great-granny for the very first time! In honor of that, I wrote a guest post honoring my granny. So, you know it's killing you to not know what my fave memory of my granny is, so go look! It's actually pretty funny.

Go find me at In Pursuit today!

My Fave At Home Workouts

I have to admit, working out is not something that comes naturally to me. I don't particularly enjoy it or find it pleasurable. Shocking, I know. Because of this, I try to make working out at home as painless as possible. I do own an elliptical and kettlebells, so I use those on the regular, but when I am not using them I love all of the workouts below!

Piloxing: I took this as a class for a few months and loved it! This DVD is the exact same as the class, except there is no bumping music. Oh, and there is a token chubby girl hidden in the back. 

Blogilates: This girl has some of the most fun workouts I've done. She constantly has challenges and calendars up on her site that can be difficult, but rewarding! I love that she integrates current pop music into her videos and explains/cues very well. At times, she can be a little too much, but overall amazing!
10 Minute Solutions DVDs: This may sound like a cop out, but I actually really like these DVDs. If you are in a hurry, you can choose to do one 10 minute segment if you've got more time you can create your own workout. I generally like to do a 30 mintue targeted workout if I have done something else. I just found a kettlebell one, but I haven't seen any reviews on it yet.

Kama Fitness: This is another website with TONS of workouts! I love that moves are explained well and the workouts are generally fast and quick. She also does a variety of workouts, so it is not one specific style (i.e. yoga). I linked below to one of her kettlebell workouts that I really enjoy. 

Tone it Up: I have to admit this was a pinterst find for me. I troll Pinterest like it's nobodies business and saw one of their workout calendars. These two women are fun, easy to follow, and come up with workout calendars that target specific things (i.e. Bikini Series). 

What are your favorite at home workouts? Have you done any of these before?

Humpday Confessions

Wham, bam thank you ma'm! It's Wednesday already! Which means time to bare it all with Kathy. 
Vodka and Soda
I still listen to Danity Kane when I work out. I have no idea why. I just really like the song Showstopper. And I'm too lazy to create another playlist. That and I have a mad respect for someone that donkey punches a crazy girl. J/K... sorta

Work has started back again.... and I still don't understand why people trust me with their children. Most of the time I can't even remember to feed myself and here I am responsible for children. WTF?! On a good note, I have an office in both of my buildings this year. Which means I have a place to hide, but also that teachers and kids know where to find me.

I am starving constantly. I dream about chinese food and chips. Is this what skinny feels like? Because if so, I hate it. I think it's actually that I am getting up at 6am when for the past month I've been laying in bed until 9. My stomach is just voicing it's displeasure. I guess I should be glad it's not voicing it in the form of farts. 

I cut off all my hair. Which actually means it is shoulder length, but I already am not loving it. I love a good ponytail and shoulder length doesn't make a good pony. Just saying. 

What have ya'll been up to?

Humpday Confessions

It's that time of the week again, kiddies. It's time to link up with Kathy  for Humpday Confessions. 

I confess that I haven't done most of the things on my to-do list for this summer. Paint kitchen cabinets? Nah, the black and white is stylish. I did a lot of other random shit though. Suck on that to-do list!

I confess that I gave into my online shopping addiction... and am pissed my packages haven't arrived. Impulse buys are no longer impulses when you think about it and regret it.

I confess I got my social security card in the mail on Monday and went to get my new driver's license and work id badge immediately... crazy ass looking hair and all. #nobodylooksatthepictureanyways

I confess that I almost bought G grapes called Witch Fingers, just because they looked like little baby penises. I have a feeling nobody else is buying these either.

What are your confessions? Dish 'em!

Fall Lusts {{Clothes}}

Since Fall is about to be here, or at least I think it is since I don't work during the Summer and I go back to work Thursday (womp, womp), I thought I'd share some of the Fall clothes and accessories that I am lusting after right now. I think that you will be SHOCKED by where the necklaces come from. I have seen them in person and they are super cute! I have a feeling I will be picking up a few of these items before too long. 

What are some of your Fall lusts right now?

Friday Favorites

Sorry for being MIA, but I have to be honest, just living life over here :) I know, piss poor, but I am  keeping up with everyone else's blogs and  I just don't wan tot just give you all blah. Anywho, here are some of my faves right now. Enjoy!

Favorite TV Show: Don't Be Tardy... Why? Because I want to be Kim Z. this bitch is hilarious. She wears wigs and has fabulous real hair, has a pretty bomb ass down to earth husband, drinks wine from a solo cup, and spends 1,200 on scratch off tickets at the local gas station. We could be besties.

Favorite Magazine: Shape Magazine. It has the best of every world, I would say both worlds, but I don't know what both worlds would be. So, instead it is every world. It has good recipes, quick and easy workouts, and features strong, confident women. What's not to like? I have to admit I have a subscription to this magazine, Marie Claire (which I haven't paid for in years), Women's Day, Red Book, and Women's Health magazine. I am a magazine addict. I love them. 

Favorite Scent: Yankee Candle Berrylicious. I shouldn't even have to say it, but Yankee Candle is legit. My abso-fing-lute favorite scent is Vineyard, so it shouldn't surprise you that the seasonal scent I love is Berrylicious. It is fruity without being cloying. 

Favorite Hairstyle: It is not as hot in Kansas right now, but it is still pretty humid so the messy bun is still a go to fave hairstyle right now. Oh, and I don't wash my hair everyday so I like to wear it up on days 2/3. Sometimes, I add a headband, sometimes not. I just like the quick, easy look of a messy bun. 

What are some of your faves right now? Share! 

I am linking up with Amanda for Friday Favorites!
