I hadn’t planned on blogging today but here I am.  A couple items before I get into my main topic:

  • I mentioned in yesterday’s post that I was going to watch the movie Warrior before heading off to bed.  I did and I LOVED IT!  Oh my goodness.  I don’t have enough good things to say about it.  Yes it was a cliched sports movie and I kind of guessed the outcome but it was still amazing and I kind of want to watch it again.
  • I have three, THREE, exams next week and I have to go into work two hours early tomorrow night to start my week off with a 10-hour work night.  Basically, I’m not looking forward to this week so much.  However, I am looking forward to this weekend because…
  • I am going to the Ohio State University football game next Saturday!!  My mom asked if I wanted the tickets and I snapped them up.  They are hard tickets to get (pretty sure OSU football is sold out for the next 50+ years or so).  I have been once before and the atmosphere is just amazing!  Expect pictures.
  • This also means I have to complete all items in my planner this week!  No writing them down and just moving them on to next week when I don’t get them done.  Yes, I still have a paper and pen planner; maybe I like the satisfaction of crossing something out or have a fear of my phone crashing (AGAIN) and taking my planner with it, either way I use paper.
  • And in two weeks time I will be sipping daquiris in Las Vegas.  Needless to say the rest of this month will be quite the busy one for this girl.

Now back to my main topic.  Black & Gold.  I had actually started this a while ago, put it on hold and forgot about it until tonight.  I was watching the season premiere of Glee (yes, I’m a Gleek, no shame there) and saw Kate Hudson and that body that she is rocking….  I mean seriously??  Is she not the mother of two small boys?  How is this fair??

Which then had me thinking something along the lines of:  God, I hate her!!  Ok, no I don’t hate her, I just want her body…  Hmm maybe I should head back to the gym and I could get something close to her body.  Of course then I will have to buy some clothes to work out in…  OH!!  Workout gear!  Blog post!

Or something along those lines.  A few weeks ago, I had an email from Victoria’s Secret about their new sports line “Black and Gold”.  It was instant love!  I would live in the gym (or at least consider going a few times a week) if I could own a few of these pieces.  Hopefully I can add a few of these to my gym bag and start sporting Kate Hudson abs in no time!


What about you?  Will you go for the gold?  Or maybe there’s another workout look you prefer.  Tell me all about it; I need something to get myself back on a treadmill!



Looky, looky!  It’s Wednesday and I am here posting my latest “What I Want Wednesday.” Usually I remember it’s Wednesday on Thursday or Friday…  I’m a bad blogger.  Nevertheless, I am here now and ready to go.  The items I am wanting this week?  Accessories.  First up, watches.

I LOVE watches.  I already own five and am constantly on the lookout to add more to my collection.  I have no idea why I like watches so much, it’s just a fact.  Here are the ones I am hoping to add to my collection very soon.




The other item I am craving today is a Michael Kors purse.  I’m not sure as to the exact style that I want, I just know that I love his purses.  They are not only beautiful but they are simple and not covered in logos telling people what brand purse I am carrying.  They are almost all a gorgeous neutral that would go with anything and I want one badly.


There are my items I would love to add to my collection.  What do you want?
