Love is a Rifle (Part Two)
My husband has interesting ways of showing his love, but they're always genuine and they usually involve guns.

So, you know all those bright shiny goals I laid out Tuesday. Phbbt!

Where's the Off Switch?
This week I've been eating and eating and eating and eating. I can't seem to get full. I am RAVENOUS all the time! I've tried to attribute it to boredom, but my stomach actually starts rumbling and I get nauseous and shaky (like my blood sugar d... Read more
I Love/Hate P90X
But mostly love.

But I had a great moment yesterday when I remembe... Read more

Adventures in Brandi-Land
First off, let me just say that if I had to put one thing at the very top of my list that I do not like about my job (and it's a pretty short list) it would be the fact that I'm stuck at a desk for 8 hours a day. So, when an opportunity presents... Read more
Freak Out! (A lot of baby talk)

Yest... Read more
Komen for the Cure 5K
Saturday I ran in the Komen for the Cure 5K in Rogers, Ark. I got up at 5 a.m., drank a Green Monster, and felt pretty good. I was a bit queasy (nerves) but nothing like I was for the Hogeye. However, as we were waiting in traffic, I got REALLY ... Read more

I'm Taking Sexy Back
I went through my "sexy" phase early. As in, I was 8 years old and thought I was hot stuff. I would wear the skimpiest clothes I could find, huge, dangly earrings and lots of (fake) makeup. Then me and my stepsister would go out and strut our st... Read more
Crying in the Dressing Room
Saturday I took my BFF out for her birthday. We had sushi at this amazing (and affordable) place and then headed to the mall for some retail therapy. For some reason I was in the mood to shop (believe me, this is a rarity) and was having fun loo... Read more
I Want a Massage
A few weeks ago, I bought a massage from a little place nearby. An hour massage for $10. Woot, woot.
So why haven't I used it? Because I'm holding on to it for that magical number: 135.
