Throw Dirt On Me... And Grow A Wild Flower

Happy Thursday everyone!  I hope y'all are having a great day.  I know I am... for one reason... it's FREE WEEZY DAY!!!  I don't know if I've ever touched on my musical preference on the blog before.  Or maybe I have, I'm not really sure.  But the people who really know me, know that I love rap/hip hop.  I've loved it since a friend's brother gave me a ride and he was blaring DMX the whole way.  I was hooked from then on out, and that had to be 1998 or so.  While the rest of my friends were discovering Indie bands and Lilith Fair, I was discovering Diddy, (back when he was Puffy,) Bone Thugs, Jay Z and so on.  When my college revamped its gym to having personal TVs, I would be rocking out on the treadmill to the BET countdown and getting really weird looks from the girl next to me.  I still to this day don't quite know another girl who has the same taste as I do in music.  (Except Kailey, who had the same idea as I did today!)  I usually bond more with guys over this.  Anyway, why am I telling you this?  Because ever since I saw him in the Destiny's Child "Soldier" video, Lil Wayne has been my all time favorite rapper.  He was arrested last year on a craptastic weapons charge and was finally released today!!

That's my man right there.  The one who pushes me through my workouts, wakes me up when I'm falling asleep at my desk, the one who produces lines that have become this blog post's title and previous facebook status':

"I don't think you're beautiful, I think you're beyond it."
"Confidence is a stain they can't wipe off."
"Just breathe baby, God's got a blessing to spare." 

That last one I am seriously considering tattooing on my wrist.

In other news, I am proud to say that I have successfully completed Jillian DVD's every day so far this week.  My goal was to do them every day but my legs are crying for a break today.  No biggie, I'll just work out Saturday when I was planning to break instead.  Monday and Tuesday were No More Trouble Zones, which I'm slowly getting better at.  I still can't do the whole thing straight through but I'm getting there.  Yesterday I tried the Shred that I borrowed from a friend.  I'm glad I borrowed it, because I didn't love it.  I was unable to make it through without taking a break so there is no doubt that it's a good workout, but it wasn't long enough for me.  I wasn't sweating like crazy or red in the face or feeling awesome afterwards.  I think it's a great choice for some people, but not for me.  I think I'm going to go with Banish Fat, Boost Metabolism.  I've heard that alternating that with NMTZ makes for excellent results.  We will see!  For tonight though, I will be chilling with her

And her
And eating some of this

And think about what he will release next :)

I'm Pretty Lame..

Hi everyone!!  Did you all have a good holiday weekend?  Halloween seems to have come and gone without a trace here.  I went outside at like 6 on Sunday night and did not see a single trick or treater.  It made me feel a little better about not accepting them at my apartment.  Molly would probably have a stroke with all that knocking so I avoid it :(   I did get a little share of the fun last weekend at a friend's pumpkin carving party.  (I did not carve.  I drank sangria and made fun of everyone else.  Someone had to do it.)

I also rocked these awesome tights

And these awesome eyelashes, which were hot pink BTW

It was a fun time :)  As for the actual Halloween weekend however, I was not in any sort of mood to do anything.  For starters, I gave blood on Friday.  This always makes me feel like crap for about 24 hours, just all kinds of headache-y and tired.  On top of that, Friday started the dreaded Time Of The Month.  Which for me is about as fun as it gets so I was enjoying cramps and headaches from that all weekend as well.  Friday night I knew I was doomed so my evening consisted of my bed and some of this..

It was pretty fabulous, minus the headache, cramps and foul mood.  Saturday night was basically the same, except swap in some unphoto'd pad Thai.  I did have a little fun on Saturday night though.  It started out innocently enough... see, I'm being really stubborn about not turning the heat on yet.  It's getting to be pretty cold at night so I bundle up and cover up and that's enough for me.  But then I started worrying a little about Molly... she sleeps on the floor, and I'm mean so she doesn't have a bed.  She was wrapped up in the tightest little ball and I was worried she might be cold.  I decided to put her in one of my old shirts to keep her comfy, so I went and put this red one on her. 

I had no clue how hilarious this would be.  This face just screams, "You're insane.  Take this off me NOW."  Oh my God, I was laughing so hard I was crying.  She wouldn't let me roll the sleeves up so she was kind of walking around all stiff legged and confused.  Eventually she lay down and went to sleep.  We took it off in the morning.  Oh, the fun I have torturing my little dog sometimes!

Well, I'm going to relax now and watch tonight's 90210.  I did the Jillian workout and I think it's time to sink into bed.  Have a great night :)
