Oh hey

Well hello there. Fancy meeting you here. Fancy meeting me here, actually. I've been MIA from blogging the last week (again), and it's been bugging me! I have stuff that I want to write about and share, but then I will be really busy with work, or will want to play with my nephews, or whatever.. And then before I know it, another day is gone, and I haven't blogged about anything and the thought of sitting at my computer for even a minute longer than I absolutely have to makes me want to kick things, so I skip it altogether. Shame on me.

BUT there are things. Fun things. Big things happening in my neck of the woods. Things you should probably know about.

...like Baby Rett's first birthday party. Holy cannolis that kid is just cute as a button. I mean seriously. How can you not just swoon over this face?

And some more pictures...because Rett is the cutest, and we made him a plane cake, and it was adorable.

And ZJ was adorable, and mastered the somersault on the grass, but I can't figure out how to get my video to transfer from my stupid phone to my stupid computer and I got sick of it so I am giving up on that one, sorry guys.

...like the fact that I started taking Zumba classes regularly at The Z Spot. The first time I went, I was really nervous, because I thought it was going to be completely exhausting, and that I'd be really sore. And I mean, it was exhausting, and I was a bit sore afterwards, but it was hands down the most fun I've ever had in a workout. I didn't even realize that the hour had gone by when we were done. Which is completely unusual for me, you know, since I tend to hate doing cardio of any kind. I'm sure I looked like a complete doofus doing it. I also had an epic fall in the class on Tuesday. If you watch this video, imagine me falling down at about 1:03. Yeah, it was not embarrassing at all. Apparently, the simple art of walking is something I have yet to master.

But seriously y'all...Zumba is amazing and fun and an awesome workout and I pretty much just love everything about it. And anybody who lives in Vegas NEEDS to check out The Z Spot like, immediately, if not sooner. (Go ahead and #backthatazzup while you're watching. It's one of my faves).

...like the time when i saw Angelique from "Rock of Love" at Vons and talked to her and everything. I knew she looked familiar but I didn't figure out who she was until after I walked away, but once I did, I thought it was hilarious. My very first "celebrity" sighting. It was a big day, people. I mean, who wouldn't be excited about running into this woman at the grocery store?! (sarcasm font)

...like the fact that the Super Bowl is happening this weekend! I guess technically, that's not a "big thing" that has already happened, but I'm excited about it, nonetheless. I am pseudo-planning a Super Bowl party with my sister. I say "pseudo" because a.) I haven't really done any planning yet, aside from just saying I want to have one, and b.) neither one of us has invited anyone yet. So it may just end up being me and my sisters and Zack and the boys. And I'd be more than okay with that too. I'm a bit torn about who I will be rooting for.. I mean, I've always kind of liked the Broncos, and I really like Peyton Manning, so there's that, but the Seahawks have like, the BEST uniforms ever. Serious conundrum here, people. Also, I like the word conundrum. On the bright side, if I can't decide, I can just saw screw it and play the drinking game that Miss Sarah posted. (Side note: If you have no idea what is going on in football but want to at least try to sound like you know some stuff, check out this post.)

...like the fact that Powerberries are back at Trader Joe's. I don't care who you are, those things are delicious. Do yourself a favor and go get some post haste. Indulge your senses in all that deliciousness and then just try to tell me that the world doesn't revolve around tiny bits of berry fruit snack wrapped in dark chocolate. Seriously, try it. Bet you can't do it. My darling sister bought me two (TWO!) bags the other day, which is how you know she loves me.

...like the fact that I have been noticing lately that I have gotten a few more followers, and there are some new faces around here! I am loving that, and wanted to take a quick second to introduce myself to everybody who is new! Here's everything you need to know about me in ten seconds or less:

I'm 29 years old, I live in Las Vegas, I'm a middle child, I am self-employed as a virtual assistant/small business administrative consultant (shameless plug - if anyone needs any assistance in that arena, please give me a shout! I'd love to help you!) so I work from home which is awesome, I am very happily taken by a wonderful man, I love cooking and baking, and driving with the windows down is basically my favorite thing. I love reading and hot chocolate from Starbucks (the peppermint and raspberry flavors are my favorite), and one of my all-time favorite things to do on a slow afternoon is go to a movie by myself. Oh, and I love to floss.

So there you have it, folks! I'd love to get to know all of you better, as well, so please feel free to shoot me an email at any time, or drop me a line on the Twit-o-sphere.

  1. This post was full of everything. First that cake looked really good. Seemed like a mix of cake, brownies, and marshmallows...am I right?
    Zumba-I've heard it is so much fun but I am so embarrassed to go there alone. Its a great workout.

  2. Your nephew is adorable!!! Happy (belated) birthday to him! So cute! I love his cake. So creative!

    I tried Zumba at LA Fitness and it was so hard. I felt so uncoordinated and I thought I was going to die, but the dancing cardio classes are always my favorite! They have zumba at my community center for $6! I am going to give it a try soon! I'll let you know how I like it!


I'd love to know what you think! Leave me a comment - it will make my day!
