little notes


dear jaymee dee,
your voice is smooth like butter. i may have had this playlist on repeat for...well, ever since i've been awake today. in love.

dear birthday weekend,
you were oh so amazing on my youthful soul, but not so good to my scale. i think i've gained a good 10 pounds in yummy cake pops, mexican food, chocolate treats, steak fries, pie, cake, and more cake. and apart of me doesn't mind at all.

dear hubby,
all of these little cuddle sessions / naps on the couch lately have been really nice. keep it up cowboy!

dear seattle,
it looks like i'll be seeing you again earlier than planned. in just a few short weeks i'll be encompassed in your rain drops, my dog, and some good home cooking. this makes me want to bust out to chris daughtry's, "home". i bet you're all singing it in your head now. your welcome ;)

dear P90x,
i started you up yesterday and my abs have taken the toll. laughing, coughing, and just sitting up claim to be too much for me to handle. please, work out gods, help me to stay motivated to do this again.

dear jennifer lawrence,
you were absolutely flawless in the hunger games. girl crush of the week, month, heck, year, goes to you!

  20. I started P90x a while back but didn't finish. I do love doing bits and pieces of it, especially the yoga and cardio dvds. I do agree with Alyx though- Insanity was SO much better! Let me know how it goes! x

  55. We've started P90x in our household too!
    Sometimes I wish the mister would tell me i'm fat or something...
    just so it would motivate me to want to get up and just get it taken care of everyday...
    I know he never would do such a thing..
    and if he did it would probably result more in my bags packed and him with a black eye then making me "motivated" but hey!

    BTW there is suppose to be another Holi (colorfest)
    in SLC this year for the first time
    its April the 14th ;)

    anyways love your blog,
    and thank you for stopping by mine :)

    ReplyDelete
  56. ummm.....OBSESSED with Jayme Dee!!!
