So Torn

Today is a day that tests exactly what I love most. I can either comment on the royal wedding, particularly the dress, or I can comments on the NFL draft a Cam Newton.

What's a sports/fashion loving girl to do??????

Warby Parker

I know I've written about Warby Parker glasses before, but I finally went to the eye doctor and decided it was time for a new pair of glasses. I picked five pairs of glasses (four pictured because the fifth were too ugly on me to share) and they send the glasses to me for free of charge for five days. You'll just have to wait and see which pair I like most but I'd love to see which pair is your fav!

Stuck in a Rut

Sometimes I feel stuck in a rut. And by sometimes I mean right now.

The funny thing is that when I think about it I shouldn't feel stuck in a rut at all. So many things in my life have changed quickly over the past few months that I should feel like it's still exciting. I'm still trying new things and trying to be as spontaneous (Caley can attest to the fact that I must plan time for my spontaneity) as I can be, but alas I can't shake this feeling.

I wake up everyday and feel like I'm doing to same stuff over and over again. Go to work, try to hit the gym, random church activity or plans with friends, read, go to bed, do it again...

I can't handle it!!!!!

I was reading this today and I felt inspired. I'm the only one who can change this so I might as well start doing something proactive. Here are a few things I'm planning on doing:

1. Add variety - try to do something new at least once a week.
2. New people - make an effort to try to meet two new people a day (Peter suggests three, but my goal is two for now).
3. Plan, plan, plan - trust me this totally makes sense in my head, but I'm talking about being prepared for things an organizing my stuff to make my life easier.
4. Dress - I love clothes, we all know this, but I want to make sure that I'm always prepared for whatever might be thrown my way. A few extra clothes packed in my car for random hot tub outings, impromptu hiking or a night time stroll... I want to make sure I'm always prepared.

This list may seem random but I've really put some thought into this and I feel like it is all attainable. Reassess in about a month.

Side note - best advice I read on this blog can be found here. Genius with the "be the go-to gal" part.

Summer Sexy?

Do any of you need a little incentive for the summer? I sure do!

I did the last workout program from this website and all I can say is that it was awesome. I pushed myself so much hard had I been doing my own circuits.

Check out the plan here and enjoy!

Birthday for the Baby Girl

Over the weekend I went to Logandale, NV, to visit my brother's family. My little niece, Brielle, turned one on Saturday. The party decorations were amazing!

Opening Day

Oh how much I love opening day. I wish I could have been at Coors Field earlier today, but unfortunately I was hard at work.

Too bad the Rockies went down in extra innings, at least there are 161 more games left!

Oh I love opening Day.

Most of my favorite memories from my childhood involve baseball somehow so I have a tendency to get nostalgic when I start writing about baseball season.

Let's just avoid that for the moment and bask in the thought of many summer evenings spent enjoy America's pastime, and let us also look forward to a nice run in the post season.

Have a great first weekend of baseball!!
