Reading: I just posted a review for Nowhere But Home by Liza Palmer. I’ve also read Love, Chloe by Alessandra Torre, The Secret by Rhonda Byrne, The Easy Way to Stop Smoking by Allen Carr (and I’ve been smoke free for four weeks and three days!!), and The Iron King by Julie Kagawa. Be on the lookout for reviews for these!!! And I’m currently finishing up You Are a Badass by Jen Sincero and reading Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy.
Watching: Game of Thrones: Oh man… so good this season. Are we really already halfway through?? NOOOO. And, without spoiling, can we just say I’m excited to see the newest possible romance play out? WHAT A POWER COUPLE THAT COULD BE. And its too soon to even speak of the Door thing. Nope.
Grey’s Anatomy: This season’s finale kept me on the edge of my seat!! But I really hope that Amelia is done having all these crazy freakouts. #overitamelia
Fear The Walking Dead: I still cannot decide if I like this show or not. I try not to compare it to The Walking Dead – because its never going to be as good was TWD. But I really can’t figure out why some of the characters are being so stupid.
Listening To: Very much enjoying our free trail of XM Radio in the Tahoe. I flip between The Highway, Y2Kountry, Octane, Alt Nation, Ozzy’s Boneyard, and 50’s on 5. As you know, my musical tastes vary haha. Also, pretty grateful that the free trial will cover us traveling halfway across the United States next week. #winning
Health: Like I said earlier, FOUR WEEKS SMOKE FREE (764 hours, $99.47 saved, 477.50 cigarettes NOT smoked, GO ME). I talk about this proudly and openly. And turns out, some people who I thought knew I smoked – didn’t. Ha!
Working out has been going good, trying for 6 times a week, and have mostly reached that. Really, really enjoying PiYo, which I should have known considering YogaX was my favorite P90x video.
Eating has not been going good. But could be way worse? I dunno. Might do another Whole30 when we get back from vacation. Who knows.
Wearing: All the Lularoe. I’m addicted. They’re just SO GOOD. The Leggings – duh. But the skirts are amazing and I want to wear them everyday except it keeps FREAKING RAINING. I can’t wait to wear the Aztec ones in the desert. Plus I got my “Mother of Great Danes” Shirt!!! YES! (So, yea, gonna need a second Great Dane soon.) And, got these Star Wars “I Love You…. I Know” shirts for Mr. Coffee and I 🙂
Planning: Vacation. We have four major destinations that we want to hit: Royal Gorge Bridge and Park, Ridgway to go to the Ranch Jack hunts at, Arches National Park, and then Steamboat Springs to see my high school bestie, Tara. We purchased a travel foldup crate for Steel and, as you can see above, HE LOVES IT. So excited to spend so much time with my little family! And any suggestions on other small destinations are welcome 🙂 As well as places to shop and eat along the way!!!
(Disclaimer: I don’t really get into politics on here. And this is not me saying who to vote for. I’m sure there are people on the other side of the fence that have had very similar experiences and I felt I needed to get this out somehow because I couldn’t the other night.)
I’ve been thinking about how some people think being a Republican means you’re a jerk. Basically I was told by some friends this weekend that because there were three of them there, that their vote would out mine and so my vote wouldn’t matter. Here’s the deal. It’s my right to choose who to vote for and newsflash – just because I’m Republican doesn’t mean you know how I’m going to vote. And you may think raising taxes is the way to go, but I don’t agree with that. I’m also not an asshole because of it. I had literally said about a half hour before that I was in the midst of deciding which charity to donate money to monthly (thanks to being encouraged by The Secret and You are a Badass, I’m choosing to give back to the Universe, and hope that others will do the same too). BUT: I want to CHOOSE where my hard earned money goes, I don’t want to be TOLD where it goes or have it TAKEN from me. I could go on. But I won’t.
As far as the fact that my vote won’t count? That’s why this country is going to shit. Because people don’t think their vote will count, so they don’t. So, to sit around a table and say that your vote will cast out mine is childish and pretty much goes against all those things you think makes your choice better than mine. You’re basically trying to take away from me something that I’ve earned by being a citizen – the right to vote.
Sometimes, Mr. Coffee is very out loud and unapologetic about his views, and it pisses people off. I kinda wished I had some of that confidence on that night.
Loving: The fact that soon, I’ll be in Colorado with my man and our dog and NATURE (and hopefully a TV with HBO on it for GoT on Sunday nights hahahahaha).
Do you donate to a charity regularly? Do you donate regularly to different charities? What’s your favorite? Tell me in the comments! (I’m leaning towards the BraveHeart Program!)
