Since I’ve been a bit MIA lately, I thought I would do a quick update about what’s been going on in my life recently.

1.  I’m now the proud owner of a pair of shiny adult braces…  Okay, I have a clear set so no shine but still.  Nothing says sexy like a mouth full of metal.  I’ve had them for a full two weeks now and I feel like I’m still getting used to them.  I was in pain for the first week and on a mostly liquids diet (and only manged to lose three pounds…  What the hell??!!).  I’m no longer in pain, but am still slow getting into foods I used to eat and constantly feel like there is too much going on in my mouth.  Only 102 more weeks to go!

2.  I start school in 17 days.  After going back and forth multiple times about whether or not I wanted to go back, I decided to go ahead, bite the bullet and do it.  I don’t really like my college (at all) and am still unsure as to what I want to be when I grow up…  Actually I know I want to be Donna (from the show Suits) when I grow up, but not sure what kind of major I need for that.  Here’s hoping school gets better and I can enjoy myself.

3.  Because I’m sticking with school I decided to stick with my job.  I try not to speak too openly about my feelings towards my job for a couple of reasons A)  I try to be grateful I have one in this economy and B) if anyone from my job were to read/hear my feelings, I would hate to risk losing said job.  However, I’m incredibly unhappy at this job.  There is a total lack of communication, no one that works there enjoys it, we are constantly working overtime and having our schedules changed at the last minute, oh and I break out in hives on a weekly (sometimes more often) basis thanks to this job.  Pretty sure that’s not a normal reaction.  But because it is third shift (another reason I dislike said job) it makes scheduling classes easier…  Attending not so much, but scheduling, yes.

4.  I’ve recently been shopping…  Like, a lot.  Maybe too much?  I keep telling myself I’m just preparing for fall and getting my wardrobe in order.  And I do make sure bills are paid first but I’m trying to do more adult things.  Things such as get a legitimate savings account going, not just $30 that I keep moving into my checking account.  Making a budget (and sticking to it).  And the big one, attempt to save for my own place.  I’m not talking buy a house, I’m nowhere near that, but a cute little apartment of my own would be beyond an amazing blessing.  Right now, I can’t so much afford that.  But I’m working towards it.  One step at a time.

I do believe that’s the majority of the updates from me.  Pretty sad that I’ve been gone so long and that’s it…  Hopefully my life picks up along with my school schedule in a few weeks.

Enjoy your weekend!  Go out and have a cold brewski 🙂



I feel like I am always on here saying “it’s been so long, I’m still alive, blah blah blah…”  But unfortunately, once again that is true.  Between finals being next week and all the overtime I have been working because of the holiday, blogging has not exactly been high on my priorities lately.  In fact, the only reason I am writing right now is because I left work early with a migraine and have a few hours to kill before my next class…  6 hours in fact…  I may actually get some sleep today!!

Anyway.  My plans are to blog early next week (will be studying all weekend for those earlier mentioned finals) and what topic will I be mentioning???  The Victoria Secret Fashion Show of course!  I have not yet watched it, but it is sitting safe and sound in my DVR waiting for me to have a spare hour to tune in…  And then a few more spare hours to run to the gym after watching.  🙂  I’m very excited to watch, based on my Twitter feed, it sounds like a very good show!  Also based on my Twitter feed, there were a lot of gentlemen viewers this year…  Surprise, surprise.

So check in a bit later to see my thoughts and feel free to share yours?  Did you enjoy the show?  Is this a yearly tradition that you make of watching it like I do?



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!
