I'm not Getting Down On Friday


Everyone is so excited it's Friday but I have to work this weekend so I'm not excited nor will I be doing anything exciting this weekend. 

1. I'm hoping the weather gets nice in the afternoon this weekend because I need a tan! 

2. I'm still eating pretty healthy so therefore, I am craving all things junk. It was so hard for me not to grab one of everything when I got my car serviced earlier this week. 

That lady brought her bongo haha

3. I am addicted to Spotify. Why has no one mentioned this to me before? 

4. One of the trainers asked me out at my gym. This was the same guy who tried telling me I was fat so I gladly turned him down. He sure knows how to impress the ladies, right ;) #facepalm

5. I get too involved in t.v. shows. I watched Chicago Fire all last weekend and loved it. I wanted to marry Taylor Kinney but then I found out he is dating Lady Gaga - ick and he is 32. 10 years is too many for me ;) 

Everyone have a good weekend and someone eat some junk food for me.

Pin Love

I'm joining in for Social Sunday. This week is all about favorite pins. Of course, I really like Pinterest and spend way too much time on it but my favorites change every so often. 

Sunday Social

1. What is your favorite outfit pin? I love these because my style is usually pretty simple and/or casual, I will add a pop of color and some jewelry but that's about it these days. 
Dark jeans, white blouse, colorful shoes
Fun casual outfit

5. What is your favorite quote/verse/lyric pin? Ohhh, this is so hard. I love so many of my quote pins.
No more fear

I still feel lost and I have no idea what is going to happen here, I am trying to loosen up a little bit and just go with the flow :) 

6. Share one more random pin you love. 
Post about this very soon... <3

I get to sleep in tomorrow so I get to skip the usual "Ugh, it's Monday" routine I do, but everyone else have a great Monday!

Oscars - My Picks

Is it the Oscars or Academy Awards? Are they the same thing? I obviously haven't watched enough or ever paid attention. I didn't actually watch the Academy Awards/Oscars. Everyone back in Iowa assumed that I would be outside "stalking" the celebrities since I don't live that far away from it. No, not happening ha - I'm still boring guys :P

I picked out some of my favorites. By favorites, I mean their outfits, I have no idea what movies were nominated. :O

Kelly Ripa

Maria Menunos 

Matthew McCounaghey and Camila Alves 

Leonardo DiCaprio 

Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum {Even though she stole my husband, she still got her rocking body back right after she had their baby} No hard feelings, Jenna...

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie {I will always be on team Aniston but I kinda did like her dress.}

I could probably go on all night about all the dresses and celebrities I loved, but I won't. I imagine picking a dress for the Oscars is a little bit like prom. Who didn't love prom dress shopping?! 

Please tell me I'm not the only one who didn't know who Jennifer Lawrence or Jared Leto was? :P I guess I should watch more movies. 

Did you watch the Oscars?

Saturday Showers

This is the first time there has been a "thunderstorm" since I moved to California. It's been raining here the last 4 days and it's supposed to keeping raining until tomorrow.

I say "thunderstorm" because the people of California are confused and don't understand that rain without thunder and/or lightening is not a thunderstorm. They also don't believe in putting drains on every block hence the moat surrounding my apartment. There are so many HUGE puddles around.

Luckily, I live on the higher side of my building because the low side  has water to their front steps. Not fun! They really need to figure something out. There was 100 accidents on Thursday, when there was only 2 inches of rain. I definitely avoided the freeway yesterday when it was pouring. I'd hate to be around if it ever snowed here!

"When it starts raining in So Cal, people start driving their cars into buildings." ~ Jim Rome 

It also started pouring while I was at the gym and everyone stopped working out to watch the rain - while oohing and ahhing. I found it pretty amusing. I haven't seen so many people get worked up about storms before, people in Iowa don't even get this worked up about tornadoes.

I do feel bad for the people who live by the mountains though. Because of the recent fires, the mountains can't soak up the rain and the rain created a mudslide. They showed a picture on the news and there was a basketball hoop that was almost covered with mud. Crazy!

I am going to continue sitting in my warm apartment and read a book. Perfect thing to do when it's rainy. :)
