Weekly Weigh-In!

Oh it's that time again!

So I haven't seen a change in weight...BUT I have seen a change in the inches numbers everywhere else. So that's pretty pleasing. I also just started doing awesome cardio on my Wii this past week thanks to Just Dance 2! Who knew you could get so sweaty from a video game?! The game also has a "Just Sweat" program where it tallies the calories you burn from each song. I don't know how accurate it is, but I usually have to dance 4-6 songs to burn 1,000-1,500 calories (my daily goal). And each song is 3-4 minutes long. It's a workout!! I'm usually dying of a heart attack by the 5th song! Pheeew!

And here are the results! (drumroll please!)

Oh yeah! That's 1" off the thunder thighs! Woooo!

Even though I didn't lose any poundage this week, I'm not letting it get me down. I know I will have a harder time thanks to my awesomely underactive thyroid slowing my metabolism down. But it's great to see that inches have been lost!

Happy Friday all! ♥ 

Oh and just for shits and giggles, here's a video for Friday! If monotoned, lack-of-talent songs are your thing, this is your type of music!

Can you believe this girl made more than a million dolllars off this song? It's had over 3 million purchases on iTunes! What. The. Eff.

Bleeding Love :)

What's Your Song?! Link up with Amber @ Goodnight Moon who is hosting :)

I chose Bleeding Love by Leona Lewis. This song used to be on repeat on my iPod a few years back, and I heard it today randomly, and it put a smile on my face. See --> :)

She's full of talent, it was hard to narrow it down to this song!

Now it's time to tackle some laundry! Oy!! >_<

Goodnight! ♥

Insomnia...and We Heart!

It's about 330 am...and, well, whadda-ya-know? I'm wide awake!

I guess it could have something to do with the fact that i took a 2.5 hour nap earlier. Or the looming ethics paper that I had to finalize. Or my care plan I gotta have done for tomorrow's today's lab class. 

All I know is...

No counting sheep for me.

Must. Get. Homework. Done. 

But it's sooo hard when I have distractions everywhere I look. Dogs making weird barking noises in their sleep. Teen Mom 2 on TV (I'm a sucker for this show). Facebook (as if anyone is posting things at this time in the morning...yet I've refreshed the page at least 3 times in the past 20 minutes. geeez.).
ahem...blogger :)

Good thing I don't have lab/school til 1230 tomorrow!

Oh and what the heck, I might as well participate in
We ♥ Wednesday (my first one)!

Make sure to link up here.

I ♥ MAC Makeup!

Hope all of you in blogland are having a peaceful slumber!

Happy Wednesday!

Wii! (Weeee!)

Hello World!

I am trying to put in to words my weekend wrap-up. But for some reason I can't seem to get them together. And i'm having a hard time recapping what I did. haha. Having 12 days off for Spring days have all kind of jumbled together! But anywho...

Check out my goodies I got this weekend!

1. Coastal Scents 88-Eyeshadow Palette - I included some pictures of my eyeballs with some different shades on it. Pigment on the eyeshadow is nice, and lasts all day when I apply my eye primer first. Not bad for $18.00!

2. A Wii! I've only been bugging Ron for the past 3 months to buy us one! He's been hesitant, saying I probably wouldn't ever play it. He finally agreed, and today we went to Best Buy and bought a bundle and some other accessories. We spent most of today playing it :)

We also grabbed some lunch at Wildflower. Mmm!

I'd love to blah blah some more, but I really need to get back in to my sleeping routine! Back to school tomorrow! Bleh! Happy Sunday!!

Thursday 5!

Happy St. Patty's Day! 

I'm not big on celebrating St. Patrick's Day. 
In fact, I'm not a fan of beer. At all. 
But I do enjoy a mean plate of corned beef and cabbage!
Hopefully I can scrounge up a yummy recipe since my mom, who usually cooks it every year is on the other side of town taking care of my g-parents.

Anywho! Link up with Nicole as she hosts Thursday 5! 
This is my first time doing this, so hopefully I don't completely fail :) 


I like starting my day off with an awesome upbeat song! It makes me feel all fuzzy inside and not to mention I bust out with the happy dance! 

So far, this has been a fantastic week! After all, I'm on spring break! Ron also took the whole week off so we could have some quality time together! 

After putting it off for 2 weeks, I finally got serious, sat down, and wrote my ethics paper for school. This thing has been seriously looming over my head. I sat down and with my sister's help, I managed to pull some great resources to help me get started. Boy, do I feel accomplished!

Earlier this week, Ron, my mom, and I ate lunch at Einstein's. As I looked out the window, I saw a couple with a beautiful husky! So naturally, being a husky owner, I had to go outside and pet her...only to find out, she was a stray and the couple were housing her until they could a) find her owner or b) find a shelter to takeher. I went back inside and told the family about this. My mom's immediate response? Let's take her home! Awkwaaard. Especially for my mom, the same lady who wacked me upside my head when I secretly bought a husky and brought her home (my mom isn't the biggest dog lover). Long story short, after some deliberation, we decided to adopt her! And when I say we...I mean my mom! How thoughtful of her to open her home to a lost pup! And since she brought her home, the two have been inseperable! 

Kenai, my Husky (bottom) and Mishka, mom's new pup (top)

As previously mentioned, my sister helped me with my ethics paper. I must say, she (cue harry potter voice) is bloody brilliant! And she always has been! Without her, my paper would be all over the place! 

And lastly, here's my song/video of the week! Link up with Amber and share your weekly song! 

This video blew up on youtube, and when I first saw it, it completely melted my heart! I'm sure a lot of you have seen this video before, but it always puts a smile on my face!

Happy Thirsty Thursday!
