Hello Out There..

Hello Out there.. Anyone there? I know I said on facebook that I was going to be back last Friday but sadly life happened and I am here to send my sorry. If I said last week was crazy - it would be an under statement. 

So without saying too much more. 
Prepare for picture overload as I take you through what has been happening in my life. I am not exactly sure where we left off but I figured I would start way back when. 

1// I put on some real clothes for the first time in forever so obviously I had to document it for everyone. I really need to clean my mirrors too. 

2// San Diego finally cooled way down and I loved every minute of it. We even had to cover up the Trig who has no fur and no fat. 

3// We went to Garth Brooks concert in San Diego. As some of you know, we went in March to his show in Sacramento . He has been the ONLY concert we have been to this year. I am not complaining one bit. I love Garth! 

4// Found these delicious and protein packed food. I love my Kodiak Cakes, I just need to find some more recipes to use it with and make pancakes. Thank you Target for always giving us the best stuff. 

5// A little dirt road and new shoes always help make your days brighter. This is right outside my front gate. Yes San Diego still has dirt roads. 

6// I am loving this pre workout from Advocare. Also, the ginger bread bars are delicious. I will admit I have failed at trying the white peppermint shake yet, but I will this week and report back! 

7// I am still in the gym twice a week with my trainer. He is thinking of new ways to abuse me I swear. I will admit though I am getting stronger and building lots of muscle. So now, I just need to get my eating under control. 

A few of my favorites in the gym, sledge hammer swings and pushing that sled. Make sure to follow along in my journey on facebook 

8// Work has been crazy busy. I don't think I have ever worked so much than I did in the last few weeks. I am hoping it all pays off soon. I know it won't slow down either as I am becoming in charge of more and more for work. 

9// This guy hung out with me a lot while the Hubby was away for a few weeks. He sure does make me smile. 

10// I was bummed I missed out on Nascar this year. My brother and Dad rubbed it in sending me pictures of Junior. 

11// While everyone was out of the house, the sister came to visit me from Washington. I sure do miss her living with me. 

Mama came to town too. 

She always has to get bloody marys wherever we go. I find them nasty as I dont like tomato juice but this one had lots of fancy stuff in the glass. 

I got my Mai Tahi instead. 

12// It was cold enough to finally wear a scarf, a rain proof jacket and my uggs. I am so excited for winter and if we truly get all this rain they are saying we will get! 

13// While sister was here we finally got to go to the gym together. Arkitty is amazing in person as she is online. I know many of you follow her as she has had a baby and lost her weight naturally. She has runs some online challenges and I promise you all it's well worth it! 

Arkittyy is also offering 20% off her online training. Make sure you sign up with her! Summer bodies are built in the winter and I promise she is amazing! 

14// I met my nephew for the first time! He is adorable! 

15// Lastly finally, the hubby came home! I mean I guess I do a lot of things while Hubby is away but I am so excited he is home. We were suppose to go to Disneyland yesterday but it was so crazy busy that we drove up there than drove home.  

I am hoping now that life is settling back down that we can get into the swing of things between blogging, work and gym. Just in case though, make sure to follow along on instagram and let me know you did!! I would love to follow all of you back. 

Happy Monday ya'll! 


  1. Good to have you back! I saw Garth last year and it was amazing!

  2. GARTH! I saw him twice last November and he really needs to come closer to me, so I can go again because you can not see too much Garth!

    Also, I haven't been to a race in ten years, I'm thinking next season it will be a must!

  3. Not a fan of Garth Brooks lol But looks like you had a lot of fun.

    P.S. You may want to blur out the PHI.

  4. Oh, how fun!! I'm so envious! Garth Brooks' first album was one of my very first cd's back in the day and I have always loved his music!

  5. I knew some of these from Instagram but I love hearing more about them on your blog :)

    I was so jealous and mad that we couldn't go to Garth when he was here. EVERYONE WENT! My friends had 2 extra tickets and asked if we wanted to go with but we were right in the middle of moving that we were trying to save up money so we couldn't go. I was so sad, especially when all my friends started posting pictures of it! Ugh!

    I can't believe Nascar season is over...I hate how it ended, I'm not a fan of Kyle Busch and I'm pissed he won the Championship. I'm a JR fan to the core but I was also hoping Jeff Gordon would take it all for his last season. Oh well.

    Also, even though I've been sick for I swear the last 2 weeks, I have been LOVING this cooler weather that San Diego has been having so I'm totally not complaining! haha

    Happy Tuesday!
