no Fun for me this Friday!

no Fun for me this Friday!

That’s right, no fun for me today.  It’s Friday and I should be thinking about how much fun I’m going to have tonight and this weekend!  Instead, I’ll be stuck at work until 9pm.   BOO!   I’m actually not even mad, I have so much work to do that it’ll be nice to have office time to finish things up.  It’s cold, it’s rainy, and there’s not much going on — so why not finish work up tonight so…

Online shopping, avoiding crowds, and PJ’s for the win!

Online shopping, avoiding crowds, and PJ’s for the win!

Online Shopping Something about snooping out the best deal is so fun for me.  Recently, we saved over 50% on a sofa that we were eyeing.  We also found really good deals on little items that need replacing — pet beds, dog gates, and throw pillows.  I shop clearance, wait for sales, and even use online coupon codes to make sure I save every penny.   This really helps when it comes to holidays — since Black Friday is notorious…

Everything’s fun when you’re sore…

Everything’s fun when you’re sore…

As this morning proved, everything is way more fun when you’re sore from a heavy-leg training week.  Walking is more fun.  Going up/down steps is more fun.  Sitting is more fun.   *Please note how I changed the word “painful” to “fun” — in the spirit of Thanksgiving and thankfulness, I acknowledge (with this switch) that I’m blessed to be able to go to a Crossfit gym and get good and sore!   Workouts that are responsible for my wobbly…

Just for Fun — Strongman Saturday?

Just for Fun — Strongman Saturday?

Last Saturday — Strong man Saturday! Our gym has open gym every Saturday morning, so as often as possible, hubby and I spend our Saturday mornings working out.  This past week was no different and quite often other gym members trickle in and we all work on stuff together… supporting each other along the way. Hubby is competing in a strongman competition this year — as his fitness goal — and part of prep work means odd object training.  Our…

Just for Fun Friday! — 11/3

Happy November Everyone!! Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it, it’ll be time to put up the Christmas tree and hang the lights!!! Chores for an hour? Today, before having any fun, I plan to take an hour and just work on housework.  I want to clean the bedding to refresh the sheets, prep for dinner, sweep & mop & dust, and all the other things that haven’t been addressed yet this week. This doesn’t seem like…

Just for Fun Friday — REDO!

Just for Fun Friday — REDO!

This weekend is our attempt at a “redo” from last weekend’s “nothing going to plan” situation.   First up — Gym My plan here is to really get a great workout in.  This week did not go as planned (normal MWF schedule) as Wednesday I was totally pooped and so I missed my workout!  I think it’s because I ran Tuesday a bit longer than I planned and then stayed up late for fun times with friends.   Here’s my…

Just for Fun Friday!

Just for Fun Friday!

Just for fun this weekend — we’re balancing all the work we have to do with my three favorite things. Brunch I love breakfast foods! Hubby loves sleeping in on the weekend!   What better way to merge these to loves than with a Saturday morning brunch!  We’ve decided to go to one of our favorite brunch stops in the next town over — where their specialty is all things crepes. They have sweet crepes and savory crepes and the…

Just for Fun Friday — I’m a zombie

Just for Fun Friday — I’m a zombie

For whatever reason, I could not settle my brain last night.  My thoughts kept leaping from one thing to the next without giving me a break to calm down and fall asleep.  I tried reading, watching brainless tv, sitting in the dark, counting sheep, and even some warm milk.   By 3 am I had tried everything — and even a grilled cheese sandwich snack — and was finally able to catch a few z’s.  Sadly, I was wide awake…

Thursday Things — Pumpkin Carving Challenge

October is all about Scary Movies, Pumpkin Spice everything, and all things “sweater weather”.  October also means pumpkin carving and trick or treaters!
