IT IS FINALLY HERE! Or almost here. As you all read this, I am officially packing up and getting ready to move out. Tomorrow will be full of packing, unpacking and planning what I really need in my own place. This weekend will be great because with a list in hand, I will finally be able to feel like I can have a place of my own.
Reflecting back, I am so glad I was able to live with my best friend for two months. She is an amazing girl who has taught me a lot making the transition to DC a whole lot easier. She opened her new ‘home’ to me and I couldn’t thank her more. I know we live two blocks away and dinner dates will be frequent. I have struggled in the past with relationships and really keeping those ‘best friends’ around. Friends like her never disappear and I am blessed to have her in my life for so many reasons. (Plus got to love her for letting me walk as a bridesmaid with her fiancé’s cute friend… does that make me a terrible person to admit?)
Got to go work those arms and start moving! I am feeling super honest this week so a confession post is in the cards.
Confession… I think this peach salsa is crack. Holy moses this stuff is good. Why have I never had it before? I won this in Kate’s giveaway and it arrived last night. Ignore the fact the jar is almost gone in LESS THAN 24 HOURS. Crack I tell you. Now how do I get my hands on more.
Confession… that snack food recipe round up happening tomorrow will not be happening. Good idea in theory but no idea how to make it happen. I got two recipe (Thank you Kelly and Sloane!). Sorry team, I tried but looks like my lack of foodie type blogging is just not gel-ing with this idea. You win some, you lose some. (I will try to post these this weekend because they were yummy!)
Confession… I wear bracelets to remind me that supports are all around me. Just the visual reminder of friends I have or experiences I have had really ground me in the moment. I would be no where without supports.
Confession… I told you that PB2 was my new love. Well, I finished the jar. Less than a week. No shame. However, it is quite pricey so I may have to hold out for a while to buy anther. Sad because that stuff was GREAT. I am actually even excited that this is the first time I have a jar to use – strange I have never had any sort of jar or container to reuse before.
Confession…I have been feeling under-fueled. My lack of time and money has left me without a grocery haul in over two weeks. Eek. I have just felt like a hungry beast lately with nothing to fill me up. That leads to a lot of not so great feelings of thoughts. Hard to explain in words but it is a bad mindset that sets in. Man, I can’t wait to cook.
Confession…I live and die by excel spreadsheets. I have made it a commitment to budget all my expenses and save through tracking my savings. I have all of my planning laid out in a nifty document so I can constantly update and tweak for optimal saving.
Confession…I wish my mom was here to help me move. I mean I really don’t need her here but I would love the company. Plus, I kind of am dreading the idea of having nothing but a bed for a few weeks or longer. Eating on the floor and watching tv/blogging from the floor sounds not so fun.
Confession…I have a Groupon deal sitting in my inbox that I can’t decide whether to use. It is for my Bikram place I love and with my other deal only having one class left I know I could sign up. The deal is honestly a winner. It is for three months unlimited for $130 dollars. That is unreal. I just worry my once or twice a week session won’t be worth it. EEk so torn and so broke. Thoughts?
Confession… this move is actually making me crave some social time this weekend. Who am I? Better question what can I do? I wish movies were free because I would hop skip and jump to see the new Batman movie in a heart beat.
Confession… I love work. And I am freaking proud I can say that.
Confession… I nearly lost my cool Wednesday morning on the metro. A train was pulling up and I was briskly walking/running to the escalator to catch it. Well I had two young girls in front of me talking, mosying down the stairs and then sort of kind of picking up the pace when they heard me behind them. Well, we get to the doors they walk in and stand there, back to me blocking. Guess what…the door closes smack on my face and I am out, they are in. INSERT SWEAR WORDS HERE.
Confession…the encouragement I received on my last honesty post meant the world to me. I needed it badly and you all came to the rescue.
Confession… I have no idea how to see how many followers you have so I am just going in another direction. These are blogs that I recently started following and just continuously amaze me with their posts. It is so ironic that the person who nominated me I had no idea even read my blog, although I read hers daily. Crazy blogging adventures for sure. Thank you Grace @ Eat Sweat Sing!
The point of this IMO, is to award a blogger who has less than 200 followers and let them know that you enjoy their blog! With all of the wonderful blogs out there, it’s easy to get lost in the crowd, so letting someone know that their blog is worth reading is a great way to build them up.
The rules of the Liebster Blog goes as follows: 1) Paste icon onto blog post 2) Nominate 5 blogs (But I like 7 more…) that have less than 200 followers and 3) let them know in a comment
Jenny @ Tofu Swag
Kristin @ My Mission Impossible
Alysha @ She’s on the Run
Kaitlyn @ Chocolate Milk and Running Shoes
Jessie @ Jessie Loves to Run
Sloane @ Strength in Freedom
Kelly @ My Love Affair with Running
Back to packing!
Questions: What is your confession this Thursday and Friday? What are you working on right now personally that need support around? What is your latest food obsession?
