Birthday Blogging!

What day is it?

Why, that's correct adorable little girl. It IS hump day. But it's also... MY BIRTHDAY!!

(I used to want to be an Olsen twin when I grew up. Bullet=dodged.)

Since today is the best day of the year (IMO), I put together this Birthday Post to share today. Feel free to steal it on your day!

Age today: 26

Age that you feel: 24. 23 seems too immature and 25 is just too old.

Great moments from past year: Adopting Bear. Going to Mexico. Seeing my niece grow.

Milestones in the past year: Moving into a new home. Getting a new job & loving it!

Looking forward to this year: Jamaica trip. 6 Weddings! Summer time. Learning to golf.

Birthday plans: Going out for dinner/drinks to our favorite restaurant tonight with friends!

Presents received: Some great cards from family/friends/coworkers!

Presents hoping for: One miiiiiiiillion dollars. (But really... nothing!)

Cake of choice: Either FunFetti OR yellow cake with chocolate icing. I also prefer cupcakes to cake.

It's your party, so you can cry if you want to. What would make you cry today?
If we got to Shamrocks and they were out of Pollo Queso!!!

Current number of birthday wishes on Facebook: 19

What are you "CHEERS"-ing with tonight? Blue Moon draft with an orange slice. Mmm.

Habits to lose this year: Procrastination

Goals for this year: 

  • Once I heal from the stress fracture, get back into running regularly. 
  • Learn to play golf. 
  • Always striving to be a better person. 
  • Don't sweat the small stuff. Worry less.

GIF That Best Describes the Past Year:

(Best with sound!)

Have a great day guys!

Reverse Body Image

($5 to whoever can name this yoga pose. I sure can't.)

So this is going to sound strange, but just bear with me.

I think I have reverse body image issues.

I'm one of the billions of women who "use to be skinny"! But in the past couple years, I've noticed that I look at my body in a different way than most of the "use to be skinny" women.

Let me explain...

A Big Ball of Mush

If a deep-fried Twinkie doesn't sum up this post, I don't know what does.

It's officially been 8 weeks and 4 days since I injured my foot. Good news is my doctor is letting me transition into sneakers. No more hideous boot.

Bad news is I have no idea when I can get back to cardiovascular activity. I have a follow-up foot doctor appointment Wednesday (my bday!) but the doctor really can't tell much from me just sitting there and him poking around the bone. So, I'm assuming he's going to tell me to start walking/jogging on it and see how it feels.

Which is awesome, trust me. I can't wait to get back out there. But at the same time, if I go out for a light jog and have pain, I might just crumble onto the sidewalk and bawl my eyes out. I need this to go away so I can get back to being active. Because right now I feel like....

What to Wear on Your First Day of Work

Deciding what to wear is always hard for women. Not only do we want to look stylish and cool, we also want to feel comfortable in what we are wearing. Add in our indecisive nature and the tendency to believe we have “NOTHING TO WEAR!” and the problem just gets worse. Needless to say, choosing the perfect outfit for the first day of our career may top the charts when it comes to difficult fashion decisions. Right behind that all white dress decision.

But, don’t panic and go buy an entire new wardrobe before Monday at 8:00AM, because I've got you covered. And remember, you've passed the interview, the second panel interview, and the meeting with the big-wigs. So, the good news is that you have already impressed them. And most likely you would not have landed this job without an appropriate and professional look on those days. So, really, the first day is a piece of cake! Right?
