Hard Core And Old School

Apparently this week I have been on a group fitness class kick. I woke up this morning and all I wanted to do for my workout was spin. So, I did. The class was KILLER. I have two favorite spin instructors. One is highly goofy, tells crazy stories, and gets you pumped up to sing and “dance” along to the music. The other is hard-core, tells it like its, and screams at you like a drill sergeant. Spin instructor #2 whooped my butt today. And I loved every hard core minute.

Afterwards, I had some organizing to do. I needed to go ahead and store all the clothes I found for B + M at consignment sales.

I always buy more than enough because then each item gets less overall wear so I can re-sell it down the line in nicer condition. I got all of those clothes for around $200 and will easily be able to make close to that back when I consign them later. Win-win.

While organizing, I also had to find a place to put some things my mom brought over for me this week. So weird to look back on these things. I didn’t even know I still had them! Then again, it doesn’t surprise me. My mom keeps everything.

Old painted t-shirts to wear to football games for spirit…

My first homecoming/prom dress…

I loved that dress! And still do. I know I won’t be able to bring myself to sell it or donate it. Although I had fun at the numerous dances I went to, I don’t keep it for any sentimental value. Heck no! It’s just so pretty! Maybe M can wear it one day? She does love dresses!

Lastly, a quick question. Has my blog been giving you problems? My site’s server has been giving me a headache with my blog not loading properly a lot of the time. Sometimes only half the page loads. Comments get cut off. Pictures, ads, subscription options, etc don’t show up on the sidebars. It takes forever to open the dang thing. Annoying. I apologize if you have noticed the same.

Question of the Evening – What style of gym instructor do you like? And do you have anything from your high school days?

What I Was Doing…

I spent my afternoon doing something completely not pleasurable. The dentist. Shudder. I hate the dentist. I want to cry every time I hear and feel them scraping my teeth. Hate. Hate hate hate. What a way to spend my boy’s one month birthday, huh? That’s right. Little man is one month old today!! Where did the time go? In honor of his birthday, and the fact time goes so quickly, I thought it would be fun to do a mini flashback post. Here we go!

One Week Ago: I was hanging out and having a girls’ night with my friend Mandy. I guess that means I can’t complain about Peter having a boys’ night tonight? Darn.

One Month Ago: I was taking an ambulance in an ice storm to the hospital to push 7 lbs 15 oz of baby out of me. I did so quite happily. As you may recall, I was pretty over that pregnancy. 😉


One Year Ago: I actually had no clue, so I turned to the trusty blog search. Apparently, one year ago today I was awoken early by Makenzie, looking forward to a full body workout, and considering whether or not I view Valentine’s Day as ridiculous. Things don’t change much over a year in some ways, huh?  But oh thank goodness my blogging has! I feel more confident after finding my “voice”.


Five Years Ago: I’m pretty sure 5 years ago this weekend a bunch of friends and I went to a cabin in the woods.Check out the attractive pictures…

I never said the cabin was anything more than a shack. It was basically camping with some wood walls. We stole all the guys’ warm clothing.

I also never said I’m not a huge dork. Apparently some things don’t change in 5 years either, huh? 😉 Somehow I still even look the same!

Question of the Evening – What were you doing one month/year ago? 5 years?
