well, hello everyone.
happy monday!
did all the mom’s have a fabulous day yesterday?
how was the weekend?

we celebrated mother’s day on friday night with family dinner at chuy’s and a movie. we saw mom’s night out, which was a little cheesy, pretty cute, and made me not want to have kids anytime soon.


saturday was bicep | back | abs day at the gym, sans workout bud. i had a headache before i left and hoped it would go away, but it decided to stick around the entire day. which mean some personal training research and blog updates all day. plus, a little time in the sun. and i ended the night finally watching the new episode of 24. any other fans out there? i used to LOVE 24. we’d have 24 parties in college every monday night, always rooting for jack bauer.
i was a little cleaning bee on sunday and finished up my todo list from saturday. plus a mother’s day dinner with fam and a few basketball games with the kiddos.

if only the weekend could last longer sometimes. it’s okay, because today is LEG DAY and ‘well, hello monday…‘ day!

on non.stop.repeat.: stay with me. <– josh kaufman (fellow hoosier) sang this on the voice a few weeks ago and i searched sam smith on spotify to find this song, but couldn’t. i found it over the weekend and it has been on repeat, literally almost non-stop since friday afternoon.

on my ‘if you buy the bag, you will eat it all in one day’ list: angie’s popcorn. <– like root veggie chips, i can down a bag of angie’s in a day. the latest victim is the purple bag of sweet ‘n’ salty. i bought it on saturday for my mom for mother’s day and one bite to ‘try it’ turned into me eating the whole bag…this is why i only buy it every so often…or steal handfuls when i visit the parents. #fatkid.
