My Best Friend is Getting Married Today

Today is the day that my best friend from kindergarten is getting married. The picture below is the bride and all of the bridesmaids for today.

Right now we’re in the hotel getting massages and about to start getting ready. My sister and I had to stop for iced coffee at McDonald’s. I’m addicted.

Last night was rehearsal dinner and that went really well. The barn where the wedding is at is absolutely gorgeous. I don’t know how to explain the decorations…junky, rustic, and country. You’ll just have to see pictures!

So we’ll get ready and start taking all the wedding pictures. Soon it will be wedding time! It’s going to be a blast!! I just have some spare time while waiting for my massage so I thought I would try writing a blog post from my phone. Now that I know I can blog from my phone you may start getting more blog posts! I can hope anyways 🙂

How are you spending your Saturday? Any weddings?


Last Post as a 20 Year Old

Yep today is my last day being 20 years old. I’ve been waiting for this day to get here for the past year, but now that it has arrived I wish it would go back a couple of days. So does that mean my 21st birthday is tomorrow. No. No it does not. Actually I’m turning 22 tomorrow.

Kidding. Tomorrow is my 21st birthday! June 27 Smile

21st Birthday Pin

I’ll entering into the beginning of my third decade here on earth. What is that! I’m getting old. It seems like just the other day we were at my house having my 20th birthday party. I got  “The Lion King” on DVD and I was super excited. My face was appears to have been really oily that day haha.

I have been missing from my blog all week, so let me catch y’all up on some happenings. As I mentioned in my last post last weekend one of my best friends got married.

It was a simple and sweet wedding. I enjoyed hanging out with the bride and the bridesmaids all day Saturday before the wedding. We got a little bored so we acted a little weird…



We had enough time to grow some beards.


And now for a picture of me with the bride. She was beautiful and was literally glowing all day!


I wish Kaitlen and Seth the best and pray that they have a very blessed marriage.

I’ve been slacking at waking up and getting my workout in lately. Monday night I did have sand volleyball so that definitely worked out some muscles I don’t use all the time anymore. Tuesday I was lazy and didn’t get up to work out nor did I have time after working to work out.

Today I finally got a morning workout in. I did running intervals that Sarah posted on her blog: Self Magazine Editor’s Favorite Cardio Workout. I enjoyed doing it and it made my workout fly by. It was what I needed to get back into my workout groove this week.

After I got done working today with my Dad, I came home and did this yoga/stretch video from Tone It Up. It was my ideal way to stretch and cool down after a workout or at the end of the day. A regular yogi might not like it, but since I haven’t been doing as much yoga lately it was a nice video to get me back into it. (The link to make it appear on the page wasn’t working for some odd reason.)

Now I have to show y’all the maxi skirt I got a few weeks ago. It’s really hard for me to find maxi skirts or dresses that are long enough and are still my size. Being tall sucks sometimes. So if you’re short just tell God thank you. Finally I found one that is cute and long enough.


I like to wear a black or red tank with a chambray denim shirt over it. In the picture I’m wearing a denim jacket. It’s a really comfy skirt that can either be worn as casual or Sunday dress attire.

And I made an investment by picking up some cinnamon bagels at Wal-Mart the other morning. They are never at the Wal-Mart or Albertson’s we go to, so when I saw them I had to get them. I’ve had a 1/2 with a bowl of yogurt, peanut butter, and bananas.



And today I had 1/2 of a cinnamon bagel with a green monster smoothie after my run.


Cinnamon bagels are simply delicious. My sister, mom, and I absolutely love them.

Well that’s it for tonight! My birthday plans for tomorrow are to actually wake up to work out,  to go get my horizontal i.d., get a pedicure with the bride-to-be of this weekend, go to Kelly’s (a lunch bar type place), and then later that evening go to dinner with my family and a certain boy who makes me laugh.

Oh just so you know I’ll be eating chocolate cake for breakfast. That’s right be jealous.

So I don’t know about you, but I’m about to be 21. Take it over T-Swift.


What helps you get motivated to start working out again? Have you had your 21st birthday and what did you do or recommend doing?

I thought it already was summer?

Like the title says I thought it already was summer? But I guess today is the first “official day of summer.”  I never get to excited about this day because I’m usually like “Well yeah it’s been summer since I got out of school in May. Get with the program June! You’re fallin’ behind!”

Ahhh I think I’m funny. Anyways.

The past two morning I’ve been in the slaving away in the kitchen to make my family breakfast.

Maybe that’s a slight exaggeration, but I have cooked breakfast the past two mornings.

Yesterday, June 20, was my Mom’s birthday!


I made some chocolate and lemon poppy seed muffins for her birthday breakfast. They were really hard to make. I had to stir some muffin mix with some milk and eggs. Really intense baking right there. They turned out pretty decent as far as muffin mixes go.

I put my chocolate muffin in a bowl with a sliced banana, peanut butter, and a couple scoops of vanilla Greek yogurt.


Since it’s Friday I like to make French toast every now and then. French Toast Friday. Doesn’t that sound nice SmileI always like to put peanut butter on mine with bananas and syrup too.


While I’m on the topic of food I just made a green monster smoothie for lunch. I changed it up a little today with the addition of strawberries to my normal mix.


For the most part it tasted good and was satisfying, but there just really wasn’t much flavor. Maybe I didn’t put in enough peanut butter this time. That’s definitely a first.


Moving on to more exciting things now. One of my favorite bloggers retweeted me yesterday. It’s silly to get excited over something as simple as a retweet, but whatever. Here’s the link:

retweet from sarah fit

Here’s her new video. I’m sure most everyone who isn’t a personal family member or friend will be guilty of being a health blog addict. I was guilty of 8 out of 9!


Sarah and I have been best friends this week. Earlier this week she posted an arm workout and I’ve done it twice this week. Yesterday I did it two times in a row. I can definitely feel it today! I love her arm workouts. Her workouts are always about 10 minutes long which is great for time and I love all of the moves she uses.

The rest of my weekend shall consist of wedding festivities for one of my best friends.  Tonight is the rehearsal dinner and then the rehearsal. Tomorrow, Saturday June 22, is her wedding! I’m excited for her and I know it will be a beautiful celebration of marriage.

She’s been dying for this day to come since we were in high school. I was still just waiting for a guy to simply text me!  And there she was dreaming of getting married….I was more concerned with…what my next snack was going to be in between classes! But I know she’s happy and full of joy for her day tomorrow Smile

Well I’m going to try to sneak a run or workout in before I have to get ready for tonight. Now I’m going to turn it over to Mac Miller and Ariana Grande. I don’t know why I like this song, but it hasn’t left my head all day. I like watching Ariana sing outside of this music video like on Ellen or another night show she was on. She’s just cute and bounces when she sings.

Have a great weekend!

Were you guilty of being a health blog addict? Do you like Mac Miller or this song?
