Long weekend!!

on August 31, 2013

Morning!   I am so happy that It’s Saturday!  I can’t tell you the last time that I actually was able to sleep in until it was daylight outside.  I do like my schedule during the week, but man it was oh so nice to sleep in this morning. 

Yesterday was my parents 44th wedding anniversary.  My dad took his bride to a nearby town where they are at and spent the day just muddling around.  I am so blessed to have the parents that I have and I love them so much! 




I am currently enjoying a cup of coffee and thinking about the things that I want/need to do today. 


  • Wash my car (it’s a hot mess)
  • laundry
  • drive to JCP to check out the sales on dresses
  • clean out the fridge
  • workout (thankfully it’s just yoga)
  • run an errand


Or, I could just stay in my pj’s and watch movies all day.   I’m going to enjoy the yoga this morning because my legs and arms are soooo tight…..I upped my weight!  I am starting to see definition in my arms and that makes me smile!




As I said yesterday, we had something go on at work that just broke my heart.  In the end however, it all seems to be working out.  It reminds me that we just have to trust Gods plan for our lives, even if we don’t understand it sometimes.

Living out your life is a beautiful thing.  As much as I am a control freak, not knowing is a beautiful thing too.  Oh there are so many times I love just taking the wheel and driving myself, but then there are times of complete surrender and I just have to let go.  Knowing how my life is going to play out would be a good thing to know, but let’s be honest here….I don’t want to know.  I want to just live in this moment.  This moment of surrendering my moments to Him.  Make sense? 

I had a conversation with a parent this past week in where I realized how different times really are.  I can remember growing up and only have Pac-Man and Atari.  My brother and I played outside all of the time and we had lots of cuts and bruises to prove so.  I had plane jane barbies, Strawberry Shortcake blankets and my brother had GI Joe…..or was it Smurfs??  Anyway, it was very simple.  Simple in the fact that even when we were teenagers, there was no Internet, social media, or cell phones.  Simple.

Let me say this, I love those things and believe that they can be utilized for good, but I just don’t want it to consume my life.  I don’t want to not be able to communicate without them.

Social media and the internet remind me of things that I can’t have or that I really want and will not be able to afford.  There is a balance of course, but I just don’t want to get to a point of not being grateful for what I have and not day dreaming about things that I want.

I am not saying it’s not ok to dream about things that you want in life, but again, there must be a balance.  I want to be content with what I have and yet desire to achieve better.  Does that make sense?  I am not good at conveying sometimes, but I just wanted to share.

I had another conversation with this young man that gave me hope that the next generation desires morals, good relationships, and is kind of old school.



It’s a long weekend and I don’t have to be back at work until Tuesday!  What about you?  Do you have any plans this long weekend??

I think I’ll bake cookies this weekend too!





Anatomy of a good smoothie!













I hope you have a wonderful day!!

    Realizing you’ve got more definition is such an awesome feeling, isn’t it. I’ve never tried pump before, but seems really fun. Have you been doing it for a long time?Totally agree on the subject of social media and you’re cookie recipe looks so delicious. Can’t believe there is no added sugar in it!

    • I have been doing it for a couple of months now and just love it. 🙂 This will be the second cookie recipe with no sugar that I have tried…I hope they turn out! 🙂 I made some the other day with zero sugar and they were pretty good 🙂
