Every single Friday night for the past month I’ve said to myself, “Self, tomorrow morning you’re going to get up and go to the 7:30 am Spin class.” If for no other reason, I’d like to see what kind of people can make it there at 7:30 on a Saturday morning. Something tells me these people aren’t drinking a pitcher of Margaritas or going to a party like this the night before:


Who knows? I could be wrong.

It turns out I won’t find out today because when you roll out of bed at 9:30 it does not facilitate getting to a 7:30 spin class. I did not let that deter my need for exercise though. When I looked out my window I saw this:


Okay, that’s kind of a lie. What I actually saw was my neighbor’s ghetto fabulous blow up Halloween decorations and plastic pumpkins plastered all over her yard. But, when I looked beyond the Halloween vomit in my neighbor’s yard, I was able to see a beautiful sunshiny fall day. So, I thought, “I will go for a run!”

Just as I was looking for some clean running clothes rolling back over in bed for another 5 minutes (hey, I needed a little more energy for that run!) Lainey comes running (at least somebody was running) into the bedroom and says,

“Hey, Mama, want to come downstairs for cinnamon rolls and coffee?”


Seriously, who could turn that down?

After that delicious breakfast I could actually feel my ass getting bigger. There was nothing that was going to keep me from working out now! I just had to check something real quick before I changed my clothes.


Okay, facebook is like a black hole. You get sucked in, and you can’t get out. Before I knew it I was watching this:

Like, whoa.

Then, I decided I wanted to go to a pumpkin patch today. So I had to Google that, just really fast and then I will be out the door. For real.

It took me longer than I thought, but I finally decided to go here:


Ok, I just have to check my email, and then it’s off I go. I must have been sucked into a time warp because the next thing I know I hear Shawn and the girls getting ready to come inside for lunch. Oh my, I have to run upstairs and hop into the shower before they realize I’ve been doing nothing for the last hour and a half.

Oh no! What about this:


Better luck next Saturday, I guess. But, do I look super buff in that photo, or what?

Did you notice the hair on his back? It also looks like he's turning himself on with this one:) I think I just threw up in my mouth!

Hillary said...

You do look super buff, and wow your hair grows fast!

I just started going to the gym and taking a class, feel like I got my butt kicked. I think I'll stick to running and leave the classes/gym up to you.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Your girls are absolutely adorable, and of course I had to laugh at the post about your daughter's VCUG and the straw comment she made! My daughter had that same thing done, and DeVos is great - been there for a lot of things. Oh, also reading your blog makes me want to go shopping. I enjoy TJMaxx quite a bit, as well as the Gap Outlet!

Thanks for visiting my blog :)

I love cinnamon rolls! They are such a weakness of mine. Nothing beats a hot cinnamon roll on a Sunday morning.

Llama said...

I dont blame you for not turning down those cinn. rolls! Oh man now you got me in the mood! you are hysterical!

Christa said...

I know what you mean about having margarita's the night before and not wanting to get up to work out the next morning!

I wouldn't turn down a cinnamon roll either!!

That video is HILARIOUS!

You seriously crack me up! I love reading your blog.

Yeah I don't blame you for not running on Saturday, sometimes it's just not meant to be.

I agree with the FB thing. Don't worry about it, it sucks me in too. The other day I was on for like two hours talking to different people, looking at pictures and taking those stupid quizes. I need FB help.

By the do look buff in that picture! :)
