Loving: Longer Days!! I am so happy that I can finally ride Missy after work and about to hang that pretty blanket of hers up for good...hopefully. We are in Texas so you never know!


Looking forward to: Going home this weekend! I have not been home since August and am really looking forward to hanging out at my house, my parents, and friends from high school that will be home for wedding showers!! oh and starting Crossfit next week!

Listening to: nothing currently

Cooking: Breakfast for dinner tonight!

Wondering: When work and life will slow down just a little

Disliking: Missy Mae broke that pretty halter above.

Enjoying: Popcorn He in Fact in no doubt keeps us entertained!

February Cara Box Reveal

Talk about a slacker! Geez! I had Friday off and took advantage of my 3 day weekend and did not document one thing. Terrible! So there was no Weekend Shenanigans link up for me this week, because a post where I just wrote what I did would be boring! 

Work is crazy, and working out has slacked the last few days. Hope to kick that one today! 

Anyways, I am linking up with Kaitlyn for my Cara Box Reveal! 

I had the pleasure of getting to know two fellow Texans this month which was awesome! Although, I did not get to meet them in person, I still had fun getting to know them better! Lauren sent me my 
cara box, and she did Awesome!!!! 

This month's theme was Club Sexy, and a bit difficult, but I think Lauren did Perfect! 

Here is my box!

In my cars box I received Lip Balm, Nail Polish and Earrings to make me feel pretty for my date night! 
Along with Candles to set the mood and chocolates to enjoy! Also, a deck of cards for husband and I each to fill out reason why we love each other! I had seen that floating around so I am excited to do it! 
And last but not least, a bone for Rocky boy! He just loves these Cara Box exchanges because he always gets a gift. I would be lying if I said he was not at my feet looking up as I opened package because he knew there was something for him, and he was right!!!

I loved getting to know Lauren and thank her for creating a Club Sexy night for me and my husband!

Hope everyone has a happy Tuesday!

Weekend Wrap Up

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Ours was spent at home with no plans! We just did what we wanted when we wanted and it was nice!!!! Friday evening a cold front hit, but I made sure to get a run in anyway, and then did arms. And boy do my arms hurt....still. Lost has taken over our TV, so we ate Turkey Burgers and watched Lost. We are on the second season, and addicted!! 

Saturday the day was beautiful! I got in a nice ride on Missy, and then we went golfing!

Sunday consisted of these cute faces!









We made Jalapeno Chicken last night for dinner! Oh my goodness it was delicious!!!! 
Check out the recipe here!!

And just to get your Monday started off, check out this video of Popcorn and Josh from Sunday! This little mini donkey keeps us entertained! He is so funny!

Motivation

So like the rest of the world I made New Years Resolutions to "lose weight" or "get in shape" basically I wanted to get back on the workout routine and eating right. I am eating better and feel a lot better! Of course, I have had a few cheat meals here and there...dang you weekends with friends...but all in all it has gone pretty well. I am a very competitive person and my kind of motivation is competition. My good friend and I began a little friendly competition to keep us both motivated and driven to reach our goal and end result: Being in shape for our FL trip come April for a friends wedding. We will be there for 6 days.

So what do we do? We run 3 miles and take a picture of what we did and our time. 
It has seriously motivated me so much. I never use to complete 3 miles, and you can bet your money I do now. There is no way I am going to slack and send her a 2 mile run. or a 3 mile walk/run that is extremely slow. I am going to do my best so she see's I am working and visa versa. 
1 week ago
I hit emergency stop 2.3 miles in on this run...now that stinks.
Today's run with hills

There has been so many times I want to stop, but push through! I love running outside rather than treadmill, but I do both and mix it up so I can add inclines on treadmill.And then after I do arms and abs. I ride horses and get a lot of butt and leg workouts in with that, but will do more if need to! I am pleased that I am still going and still feeling motivated, actually more motivated than ever! I WILL see a difference come April!  

The husband helps push me with abs and arms and I am slowly seeing a bit of definition...see...

Barely, I know...but some. This was taken the other week also ;)


What do you do to keep motivated? What are some running tricks you do?

And no post is complete without a pic of my little boy! While the husband was away to FL, what did we do? Well no other than play hide and seek! It is Rocky's favorite!

Happy Wednesday Everyone!!

Weekend Re-Cap!

What A Weekend! Boy was I glad to get home yesterday. I spent so much time driving. Wheew! But it was a good weekend none-the-less!!! 

Friday Rocky and I enjoyed a glass of wine on the patio of a local wine bar and met up with a new friend! She is a fellow barrel race and christian! I look forward to getting to know her more and riding our young horses together! Our horses are both young, so that is nice! 

Next I headed to Austin to pick up the husband at the airport! Then on to College Station we went!!! 

He left the next morning his KY to play golf and SY and I worked out and ran errands to get ready for our friends couples shower we were throwing that night in Houston! It was a great success and everyone had a lot of fun! The theme was "Around the Clock" so we had food from every meal! It was fun! Here are a few pictures from the shower!


The Bride and Groom

Quite the trio we are!

Husband and I
Love this group of ladies!

The weekend was a good one, but an exhausting one! To help make the drive home quicker I watched Taken 2! Loved it!!! SuperBowl was low key, but good! Beyonce killed it and it was quite the game.
