Hi, guys! *waves*
I know it’s been a few days. To be completely honest, I’ve taken a step back a little bit from my online search for love. Over the last couple of weeks I’ve “bumped” my adverts but the only messages I get come from those who are too far away, too old, or just too damn stupid…or all three. Jeez, I mean, where is my Romeo? I’m not exactly frustrated over it. I am not too naïve to understand that an online “search for the one” in more cases than not yields no results. I have continued to keep my profiles up and respond if someone messages but for now I’m going to step back from being so aggressive about it.
So you guys get a nilla blog post! I’ll try not to bore you too much…
I had a treadmill on layaway at Sears for oh, about the last three months and I’ve finally paid it off. Huzzah! So the delivery guys came yesterday and set it up. It’s b-e-a-utiful. I already have a love/hate relationship with it, haha! My goal is to get on it every single day.
My family is planning a huge trip to Florida at the end of September for my mom’s 50th birthday. So the goal is to lost 60 pounds before then. It’s totally do-able. I just have to exercise my cute butt off until then. I’ll be weighing in once every 2 weeks (the goal every weigh-in being 7.5lbs) and I think I’ll update this blog every now and again with my progress. I’ve tried (like most overweight adults) my entire life to lose the weight so I have little faith in this but I also have high hopes.
And this week I was inadvertently put in charge of “potluck day” at work. So on Wednesday it’s Mexican potluck time and I’m bringing fruit salsa with cinnamon-sugar pita chips. It’s my first time making it but it sounds delish. Bought the fruit today – raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, kiwi, and apples. It sounds so good I want to make it for dinner but I’ll hold off until the potluck. 😉
Moving on, I’ve been catching up on my True Blood all week-end in preparation for the awesome-ness that is going to be the Season Six Premiere. I’ll admit – this show jumped the shark long ago (was it ever really “normal” though?) but I just can’t give it up. I love-love-love Eric. And Alcide. And Eric/Alcide. If they could both Dom me in character I could die a happy woman. I mean, fuck.
So True Blood is on my TV lately but another epic series has been on my night stand. I just yesterday finished A Game of Thrones which took me over a month. And this coming from a gal who can literally finish a typical novel-length book a day if it suits her. A Game of Thrones was lengthy, descriptive, detailed, epic, and great. I seriously enjoyed it. The slow read was actually quite refreshing. I usually finish books so quickly that I don’t have much time to enjoy them. After finishing, I read a short romance just to make me feel all fluffy before starting A Clash of Kings. I guess the message here is – definitely go read these books. Even if you are a huge romance novel reader (like me) you are going to love them. And if not, let me know what you didn’t like. I’m always up for book discussion.
And before I let you guys go I’ll leave you with a question. I am thinking about getting another tattoo (I have three so far) soon. I either want Mary Poppins silhouette behind my ear/on my upper neck…OR the words ‘Laugh’ and ‘Love’ on either wrist. For those who have gotten tattoos in these spots, what is the pain like? I have one of my tattoos on my front shoulder a bit lower than my collar bone. The other is on my back shoulder and the third is on my lower calf (not quite as low as my ankle.)
That’s all I have for today… I hope I didn’t bore you guys too much. 😉
This blog is not to become solely vanilla, so no worries there. But if I step back and look at myself I see so many things. I see a daughter, a sister, a friend. A girl, a bird, a kink-monster. If you look at a diamond in the sun, it’s so multi-faceted. Like a million tiny little mirrors all reflecting off each other. Every piece of me is different and yet –the same.
Hope everyone has a fabulous week.
