Weekly round-up #1

I love the idea of a weekly summary, and a few all of the regular blogs I follow features one. So, as I'm a lover of following the norm, here it goes!! I think its a great way to put a little personality into the blog other than just having book reviews!

And in future these will be out on Sundays. I mean, that's the goal anyways. And I need a sweet name for it.  Any suggestions?

So.. what happened on my corner of the earth this past week.

I worked out a lot this week. Like a machine. And I guess it paid off because when I went to the mall I am down a size! Victories like these make me happy! I might have celebrated with a pint of beer.
 I also tried a yoga class for the very first time, and I freakin' loved it. I mean, I've done yoga before, but on the Wii. And well you can cheat at that!  I am excited to not be like tin man down there!
sb random 291 Sunday brunch (60 photos)
I hung out with the fam jam, and the little neph is growing up so big! I can't believe he's 7 months!

This past weekend I went to my 10 year high school reunion. I didn't know what to expect, but it turned out great. In the day and age of facebook I was surprised with how many people did show up and from all walks of the high school stratosphere. I still cannot believe I've been out of high school for 10 years. And admittedly I was a little hesitant to tell people what I do for a living but with enough alcohol I'm sure people weren't even listening!

And because of above event, Sunday was spent in a ball on the couch, drinking chocolate milk (the best hangover cure!) and watching The Office and Dexter.

The Interweb:

Through my boredness and cruising around bloglovin' I came across a new favorite blog:
I Wore Yoga Pants to Work.


  1. Congratulations on dropping a size, hope the celebratory beer tasted good. Great weekly round-up, I'm off to see what you though of The Girl You Left Behind, I loved it.

    1. Thank you! I'm sure having a beer didn't help matters, but it tasted so good! lol!
