Weekend Mish-Mash...

Hey Girl Hey!!
A few things to cover today.
Really just a bunch of randomness...
My divas are in the Bahamas this week.
I know what your thinking "why the heck aren't you there biotch"
Well, because I have a 2 year old...
Addy girl + Cruise = no time for booze by the pool or laying in the sun...
Where is the fun in that.
Anyways, since they're gone my Saturday is wide you fine mamma jammas get to listen to me babble!
I've been lazybusy & neglectful of my blog this week.
Sowwyyy Charlie
So I have a LOT to say


I've been a very very good girl this week, by good I mean, I've done 45 minutes of body pump three times since Wednesday {last night we were at Nana's till late}. On average every hour I'm burning 1100 calories...say what I know girl, I know. There's nothing more exciting then being able to work cardio AND strength into one workout. Particularly one workout you LOVE. I sweat my butt off, like sweat in the eyes {gag me}, but it's nice to work hard. I waddle around the next day and want to cry every time I laugh but it's so worth it. I'm feeling a little, ehh what's the word for it...I'm dreading Wednesday weigh in. Whenever I start body pump again, I usually see either no loss or a small gain over the first week or two...muscle weighs more then fat {right?} I tone up quickly, and my belly really slims down, clothes fit better but the scale doesn't always reflect the hard work I put in. Either way I won't be discouraged this wednesday when we weigh in because I know how hard I worked. {{and you bishes best be on your game this week too, I really want to see success for all of you throughout the next 16 weeks}}

My A-Z
{because you aren't cool if yah' didn't do one}
or maybe you just have more interesting things to do

A. Age: 22 {35 on the inside, motherhood, military life...wise beyond my years}

B. Bed size: MEH...since moving back home I'm back in my twin bed. I should've taken that stinkin' king memory foam cloud and strapped it to the top of the Expedition...It would have totally survived the 1,400 mile trip from Arkansas to New York. Once tax time comes Mama is getting a Queen bed.

C. Chore you hate: l a u n d r y...I will scrub poop out of the potty with my bare hands to avoid folding a load of laundry. If it were up to me I would get dressed out of a pile.

D. Dogs: a beautiful golden retriever. love our kin kin.

E. Essential start to your day: Shower. If I don't shower I sit around like a lazy bum.

F. Favorite color: Green.

G. Gold or Silver: rose gold lately...

H. Height: 5'4ish"

I. Instruments you play: That's a scary thought. I've tried the viola, violin, and clarinet...every one a disaster. I am NOT musically inclined in the slightest.

J. Job Title: Tanning Salon Girl. Full Time Student. Full time Mom. {I miss my SAHM the worst way}

K. Kids: Adaline Charlotte {2 1/2)

L. Live: New York

M. Married: technically speaking, yes. For 4 years to my best friend and high school sweetheart of 7 years. 4 months ago he went bat shit crazy, got a girlfriend, and walked out on Addy and I. {he's such a good guy}

N. Nicknames: Alex, Al, Baba {as in Ali Baba}, oh god and little brother couldn't say Alexandra so he called me Algazandra. 17 years later they still call me Alga, in public, on birthday cakes and I want to punch them in the throat saying I hate it is putting it mildly.

O. Overnight hospital stays: Just when I had my induction, and then c-section with my 10 pound spider monkey. I was so upset then, but now I think my lady parts are thankful they didn't have to go through that trauma!

P. Pet peeve: poor grammar. chewing. breathing. hovering

Q. Quote: "I love you Momma" - Addy. There is nothing in this world I would rather hear then those 4 words...she makes my world go round.

R. Righty or Lefty: Righty.

S. Siblings: 1 sister and 1 brother.

T. Time you wake up: 6 on work days, 8 on days off {because that's when Addy wakes up}

U. University attended: SUNY Adirondack, Arkansas State University

V. Vegetables you dislike: I have a seed issue, so if I can't scrape the seeds out...I won't eat it.

W. What makes you run late: oh girl, I do not do late. not ever.

X. X-rays you've had: knee, teeth

Y. Yummy food: in true fatty fashion...PASTA.

Z. Zoo animal favorite: Sloths.


I got my very first Kiki La'Rue order today. I loved everything, the quality was great. The fabrics were so soft, I seriously felt like I could wear the clothes all day and not even want to put my sweats on. {and if you know me you know, as soon as I walk through that door I go straight to the closet and throw on my yogas. do not pass go. do not collect $200...I just want to surround myself in soft stretchy fabric} The famous Lanore scarf, LOVE! Even with my buxom bubbies it still looked appropriate and sat well, a lot of times infinity scarves, especially heavier knit ones just stick rite out...not KLR's, I LOVE it! I got a pair of earrings to match my scarf and I LOVE them too, obvis they might be my new favorites. Becka is great with customer service, and picks awesome items for her boutique. I can't wait to order again {later this week when more maddie tops come in & lanore scarves...shhh} You can find them here and here, I HIGHLY recommend them, affordable, great quality, comfy clothes. Did I mention adorable?...LOVE. LOVE. LOVE.

If you made it to the bottom...
Then you must lead as interesting of a life as I do.
Get it Gurlll.
Love you, Love you, Love you
