cleaning=workout #2

wheeeeew. I got in a second workout today. I cleaned my bathroom, bedroom, living room, and kitchen. and by clean I mean SCRUBBED. It felt so good to look around and see a beautiful condo. (not that it was gross before, I just like things sparkly-clean!)

oooh oooh. AND I actually cooked tonight and was very pleased with the result...Veggie Burger Quesadilla!!! YUUUUUUUM!!

funnnnnnnn in the sun!

I was totally the babysitter of the day at the pool today! I got my little kiddos and a bunch of other kids to play Simon Says, Red Light Green Light, Hot Potato, and Diving Board Contests... I had just as much fun as the kiddos!

One of Jack's friends came when we were eating lunch, and I had said to Jack, "let me get hot for a minute and I'll get back in." and his friend asks Jack, "your babysitter actually swims?" jack says, "yeah!" friend says, "oh my gosh, she is like the only babysitter I've ever known to actually get in!"

that comment just MADE MY DAY! :)

sweet little Blake.

here's a conversation that Blake and I had today...

Blake: "so, did you miss me when I was on vacation?"
Me: "Yes, of course! Did you miss me?"
Blake: "Not really because I was having SO MUCH FUN! But... I still love you!!!"

I have one question...why does healthy food have to cost SO MUCH!?!?!?

everybody is saying how America is so obese...maybe because junk food is practically free while good, healthy, wholesome food is ridiculously high in price!!!!


oh well, it's a price I'll just have to pay in order to stay healthy! it's worth it!

movie reviews...

My friends came over today and watched When in Rome and Valentine's Day. I thought they were both good! When In Rome was so sweet-cute love story. Valentine's Day was funny. It showed a bunch of different stories of couples on Valentines Day...some were funny, some cute...Kelsey gives both movies TWO THUMBS UP! :)

books. books. books.

hmm..what should I write about? today was my day off. I must say it was very nice to wake up and see the glorious time of 9:15 on my phone! :-) I worked out and went to the library. Out of all the reading I've done lately, I have to pick these as my favorites.

The Last Song (all time favorite book)

Favorite Authors
Nicholas Sparks
Kristin Billerbeck
Karen Kingsbury
Kristin Hannah

I came home and read a book from cover to cover in about 2 hours. It is great to just escape from my own life and get lost in a story. I'm so glad I've fallen in love with reading!

They didn't have to install a whole new compressor in my car, so they fixed it for only $220!!! WAHOOOO!!!! That's a LOT better than $750!!!! Thank you Jesus!!!

ah. pool = amazing.

spent the day at the pool with Robbie and Myrtle. It was pure enjoyment. The water was the perfect temperature, the sun was shining, and everyone was in a good mood. :)

well...apparently my AC is completely messed up, so I have to get a whole new compressor!!! boooo. But, good news, I got the rest of it fixed, so at least for now I will be safe driving around with the windows down. Dad is calling around to see if he can get a better deal, because the place I took my car is gonna charge $700.

oh well, when life hands you lemons, make Lemonade!!! :)

last night we celebrated at the Blackhorse for Katie completing her LSAT. She has been studying nonstop since we went to the beach (that's why she couldn't go, because she had a LSAT help class). WAY TO GO KATIE!!! :)

well...apparently there was a whole load of things wrong with my car...glad I got it in the shop when I did! I'll be carless until Wednesday evening, but hey, that's a small price to pay in order to know I'll be safe driving around! :) Thank you Jesus!

GO SEE THIS MOVIE! It was soooooo good! I laughed throughout the entire thing!
I have NEWS!!!!
I went on a DATE tonight! Yes, me! It was fantastic! His name is Daniel. We actually went to highschool together. He had a girlfriend back then, so I never really thought of him as more than a friend. Long story short, Mrs. Ellen did her match making skills, and he asked me out. We went to Olive Garden and saw SHREK.

OMG!!! We had the BEST TIME EVER!
nonstop awkward silences, just pure enjoyment!

fyi... HE PRAYED for our meal...opened my doors, the whole nine yards. :)


I love the music every week, but I was totally completely into the music today. We sang my FAVORITE song... The Revelation Song by Phillips, Craig, and Dean... man, no matter how often I hear that song, I ALWAYS get into it. It is so powerful!
