Because I'm Terrible at Scrapbooks

Starting Your Day Right.

Hi all!

I’m coming off of OU-Texas weekend and behind on getting posts ready for the week thought it would be fun to take a little walk down memory lane today to highlight some random (but entertaining!) posts over the eight year life of this blog (!!!).

So even though this isn’t a “real” post, it sort of is, because chances are you haven’t read these.

So really, you’re getting like 10 posts for the price of one.

What a steal!

So even though it’s Monday, and your boss is probably forwarding you heaps more work on your already full plate, take a step back and realize- “Hey, I’m busy, but I’m no Jack Bauer.”

You’ve got this.

Or thank your lucky stars you don’t work with The Great and Powerful Oz

(or do you??).

Or perhaps you indulged over the weekend?

Don’t feel bad, we all do.

In fact- here’s a hilarious story about Will and I actually getting into a fight over cheese sticks.

Yes, it’s true.

Or maybe you’re really bored at work and aren’t sure what to do?

You’re in luck!

There was a brief period of my early working life when I too had to hold my eyelids open so as not to fall asleep.

On those days?

I did this.

How about why, to this very day, I am tempted to throw away food in the work fridge that’s been there for ages.

Travelling for work soon?

Don’t be a flake, prepare for the worst!

Let’s move away from work for a bit.

Let’s talk football in honor of tonight’s game.

Remember when I almost swallowed a fly in front of Drew Brees?


Ooh! Or let’s talk about how much out of this world fun The Dollar Tree is!!


Or we could discuss how I let curtains sit at the dry cleaners for a year and had to sneak them into our house so Will (who swore up and down we didn’t have them- despite my arguing) wouldn’t find out.

Let’s not forget my obsessive compulsive tendencies ,

Or how, at 29, I flooded my dishwasher with bubbles

Yeah, good times. Lots of quality posts here. smile

Let’s take a look at what we will be talking about this week:

-My OU-Texas weekend recap
-Core work
-How to make your eyes pop in an easy step
-and more!

Check in this week for fun, and have a great day!

Weekend Recap And Week Ahead Preview (And P Goes to Work!)

Hello lovelies!

Why do I always feel like I start my Sunday posts with, “It’s Sunday! I can’t believe the weekend is over!”?

Probably because, I always do.

I would say I’ll try to work on my creativity, but the truth is, every Sunday I think to myself, “It’s Sunday! I can’t believe the weekend is over!”

So yeah… maybe I should do some self helping and work on that…

Lucky for me, I’m posting early, so I still have lots of the day left.

Anyway, I hope you are having a fantabulous weekend!

And crazy- did you know fantabulous is a real word?

I totally thought it was a “fake” word. I am notorious for adding a “y,” “ing” or “ous” to the end of anything to make up my own variations of words.

And yes, I’m 30.


So, I just typed it and the red spell check error of death didn’t come up, so we should totally overuse this word now since it’s legit!

Anyway, back to the weekend part of this post. I hope you had a greatfantabulous one.

Mine has been nice. Friday was uneventful. A thrilling trip to Sam’s, and that was about it!

A quiet Friday was fine, because Saturday was full. We ended up driving to see Will’s grandparents (and a lot of other family) for the day. We typically have a family reunion every July, but this year it was cancelled. Instead, our “branch” of the family tree got together and cooked out and spent the afternoon together.

Can I tell you how much I love both sides of my family?

My MIL called to make sure I wouldn’t starve, and even picked me up black bean burgers.

We have a lot of July birthdays, so we ended up celebrating them all together, so that was nice too.

Not only that, but Will’s grandma gave me the prettiest apron! Her mother (Will’s great grandma) left behind lots of fabric, so Will’s grandma made aprons for all the ladies in the family based upon fabric that seemed to reflect each of us. It was so thoughtful! Mine is white with pretty red and pick flowers on it, complete with pretty lace around the edges. Very girly.

I look forward to doing some clean cooking in it.

Special apron Will's grandma made me

We ate, shot paintballs-

And even Will’s grandpa got in on the fun!

Shooting paintballs with grandpa

We got home sort of late, so Sunday morning we watched Life Church at the movies online instead of going. Definitely check the series out! I posted a list of times below you can catch it.

The rest of today will be full of chores and more chores. Boo.

And then there’s my beautiful sister.

She starts her big first job tomorrow!

Ugh, when I think back to my first job, there were a lot of growing pains! Plus I documented it all on this blog, which makes me cringe when I go back and read about my immaturity, but at the same time, makes me thankful for some of the life lessons I learned along the way- and also makes me thankful I got out from under such a crappy work environment.

What about you guys and your first jobs?

I remember the helpful insight you offered way back when P first started college and felt sort of lost and alone those first few days on campus, and I thought I would throw out the same request for helpful hints and advice as she nervously begins this next big phase in her life.

Any tips she should consider?

I gave her funny ones, like no stripper heels or blowing giant bubbles with pink Bubble Yum (obviously grape, however, is totally acceptable haha), but I also gave her some practical advice she hadn’t thought of, like what to do at lunchtime her first day and all those silly insecurity things you fail to think about but panic about your first few days.

Anyway- I’m sure any thoughts or stories on your own first job would be appreciated.

Now let’s take a look at what is on the agenda this week:

-The Nice Girl Campaign continues
-Cleaned up Vegan Twinkies. Yes, after Tuesday’s post, this is happening.
-Workout hydration
-Ipsy Review
And More!

Weekly Line-up

Happy Sunday morning!

I hope you are all having a nice weekend. Mine has been pretty great.

Friday night we went to Bricktown and ate dinner with my family to celebrate an early Father’s Day with my dad.

Afterward Will went to a poker night with friends, so me and P spent a little more time at Bricktown enjoying live music and decent weather.

Yesterday we visited Will’s parents for Father’s Day, too.

We went to breakfast, did a few laps at the mall to help with blood sugar regulation (Will’s dad is diabetic), drove around town to see all that’s changed, and spent time chatting.

It was a nice day! We got home and I caught up on some chores and laundry and food prep for the week.

And we actually went to bed at 11 last night.

Which is super late for us.


Today we are having a quick lunch over at my parent’s, and then it’s back to chores and more chores.

Adulthood is awesome sometimes. (haha)

So let’s talk about this week’s lineup!

We will be chatting about

-A veggie-antioxidant packed summer side dish
-Our smoothie challenge wrap-up
-The Brittny’s Bootcamp wrap-up
-My June Ipsy Review!

And more.

So check in for fun! Have a good rest of the weekend!

Weekly Line-up

Hi friends!

I hope you had a good weekend.

We went up to the Tulsa area Saturday for a family get together on Will’s side, so that was nice. It’s always good to catch up and spend time “visiting” with one another.

Most of today was spent catching up on chores I wasn’t able to do yesterday, and I am finally just sitting down to share this week’s line up!

I hope you will check in this week. Here’s a quick look at what we will be talking about:

-Back to the basics: I conquer Cooking 101
-Summer smoothie!
-Last chance boot camp workout
-Why Will is driving me crazy

And more!

Now time to unwind a couple hours with Will before another long work week begins.

More to come.

The Previews

Ugh- Sunday night already.

Sunday nights are sometimes even worse than Mondays for me because I am the worst about dreading the week ahead instead of simply enjoying the last few hours of the weekend.

Why do I do that!?

Definitely something that has NOT left me as I turned 30 and magically was supposed to become more amazing (hmm… still waiting for that to happen too...)

Anyhow, since we can’t go back- let’s go forward!

Here’s a look at what we will be talking about this week:

-A fun weekend recap
-A detox-ish smoothie
-Some updated bootcamp workout moves
-A self tanner worth buying
-And all things related to purple people eaters

I look forward to our chats this week!

Week at a Glance

Hello hello friends!

I hope you are ready to tackle a new week, and if you’re not? I fear we have no choice.

Hopefully everyone had a good weekend.

We visited my inlaws on Saturday and had a nice time. Will’s brother and sister-in-law were in town too, so we made a day of it. We shot the paintball gun, drove around our hometown, had lunch, and celebrated my belated birthday as well as my BIL’s birthday. It was a nice time. I am blessed to have a really great set of in-laws.

I spent almost the entire day Sunday with my family. I am so thankful for them! It was a good day, and the weather was lovely so we took time to enjoy it.

But alas, the weekend is over and another long week begins.

Here is a look at the fun we will be talking about this week!

-A yummy Bananazilla smoothie
-A kick-your-fanny circuit
-A super fun makeup surprise
-And how the B-Love girls got crazy

I hope you tune in and stick around. I promise it will be a good time!

More to come…
