10 Friday Things

Hey guys! Happy FRIDAY :)

I feel like Fridays are all about fun, and being more laid back, so with my posts on Fridays (as you might’ve noticed) I’ve kept ’em more laid back & somewhat random.

Yes, I totally plan in the randomness.

(Hello #typeA #planner #overachiever. Story of my life.) :)

Hey, at least I own up to it.


10 Friday Things

1. I think I can start a new quote to be pinned,

“I totally love packing & moving. -Said no one ever.”

Anyone with design skills wanna make that one look pretty?! And then let’s all chuckle at it & murmur in unison “Amen.”

In all honesty, my husband and his brother are the champs. I did most of the packing & cleaning, and they did all the moving. Yah. ROCKSTARS right there. (We’re moving from a smaller apt to a bigger condo complex about 20 mins away).

2. Because I love color so much, I have to reign in the desire to buy every pillow, rug, and basket that has the colors I love on them. (pink, green, orange, and yellow<—bright. NOT pastel.)

kinda like these colors:


I was in Target the other day (and ONLY came out with 1 purchase. Can I please get an award?!<–thanks to pinterest). Anyways. I saw these awesome lime green throw pillows that I want for our couches…..aaannnnddd they were in the teen-bedroom section.

Yah. I know.

Even better?

I still might get them.

3. I can’t stand craigslist anymore. Where did all these ‘owners’ get permission to post ads?! UGH.


{We’re on the lookout for some more furniture. Hence my even being on that site.}

4. My parents get in tonight! I can NOT wait to see them!!

They are here on business for less than 24 hours–and you bet I’m gonna soak up as much time as I can with them. Moving in can wait until later (ummm….most likely next weekend), right?!

5. I somehow managed to watch the Drop Dead Diva season (4) finale and pin some great images on Pinterest while being not-so busy at work. It’s amazing how we can ‘find’ time for that stuff even while being busy?!


I am totally guilty, and totally working on this.

6. I am headed to Las Vegas tomorrow evening for the BodyPUMP AIM 2 training!

Yep. Totally stoked. Totally nervous. Totally excited.


Remember my AIM 1 training in February?? Well, I am taking the next step forward in my progress as an instructor, and hopefully reaching another level of intensity in my coaching & teaching.

7. The following recipes are ones I want to try:





8. And the following DIY projects are ones that I will tackle eventually. Eventually being the operative word.



9. I am sorry to rain on everyone’s parade, but I am not ready for Fall yet. I just looooovvve Summer. I could go for a few more days at the pool, a nice tan again, ice cream cones in the heat, and wearing flip flops & skirts everywhere.

A few more weeks of this please:


If Fall would just wait & come in October, I’d be good. I can do pumpkin, boots, sweaters, hot cocoa, and crisp mornings in a few weeks.

10. FitMixer products are the bomb-I pretty much dump ’em into every protein shake, green smoothie, and cup of water. SO tasty.

I think I like the Grape Aminos better than the Fruit Punch. So does my husband.

Oh, and I am loving treadmill runs–interval running, in particular. And the Aminos totally fuel these and make me run faster, I swear.


p.s. happy birthday to my brother-in-law! (he probably will never read this, but whatever)


Have a GREAT day, people!! <3
