What Shall We Discuss?

Hello Again,

So, this is my third day as a blogger.  Yay!  So far, I am really enjoying browsing other people's sites and learning about all you awesome folks.  I have wide array of interests from makeup to cooking, reading to running (that is a bit of a stretch- but I do intend to get in shape), and television to trampolines.  I know trampolines are a bit random, but if you haven't tried a venue like Sky High Bounce, you are missing out :)  Anyway, what do you all want to discuss on a close to daily basis?


I am on my fourth day of Weight Watchers (for the second time), so I will likely have lots of stories there.  I am living with a boy for the first time ever.  Eek!  I am taking Spanish lessons and am game for trying nuevo things, as long as no rodents are involved.  Mice scare the bejeusus out of me.  I am absolutely addicted to cosmetics and shopping in general.  Which leads me to my next point.  I am on a new budget (boo), but I am reducing my credit card debt (yay).

So, let's hear it.  What do you want?  A weight loss diary?  A healthy recipe blog?  Makeup reviews?  I will go wherever the wind (and by the wind, I mean you readers) takes me.

Post a comment and let me know.

Adios Amigos,


A Bit Too Much... On a Wednesday Night

I play in a bocce league on Wednesday nights.  For those of you who don't know what bocce is, it is awesome (Google it now!).  Anyway, after the game, which unfortunately we lost, we headed to our local sponsor bar for some beer and good times.  The only problem was that I had a bit TOO much beer and not enough good times.  I had a blast with my teammates and kicked butt at flip cup.  Yes, in my twenty-five years of life, I have finally managed the art of flipping a cup.  Unfortunately, G, my super wonderful boyfriend, is also on my team.  And he was being a bit of a party pooper.  Encouraging me to slow down on the drinks and making me feel like I was partying with my mom.  Not cool.  I know it comes from a good place, as he cares about me, but sometimes, I don't like feeling like I have a chaperone.  What do you think, girls (and guys)?  Am I being too hard on G?  It wasn't like I was plastered, just slightly buzzed and having fun.  Do you and your significant other monitor each other's alcohol intake on a night out with friends?

All About the Benjamins

I am having a bit of a problem.  Actually, I am having a LARGE problem.  I am a cosmetic, clothing, entertainment, dining out, taxi taking addict.  Nice to meet you :D

And my bank account (and waistline- that is for another day) are paying the price!  I have actually reached my credit card limit on the only card I carry a balance on.  Eek!  When I started using the card, the plan was simply to use it and may it off the same month... to build my credit.  Three years and thousands of dollars later, the plan is what one might call a failure.

Nonetheless, I am determined to change.  I am on Mint, and I am actually going to try to pay attention to the little alerts.  Currently, I click and delete them as fast as possible because who really wants to be reminded that they spent $300 on shopping when their budget was $75? 

I am a changed woman.  So, we will see how it goes.  I am definitely cutting down on dining out and frivilous purchases.  I WILL be credit card debt free by 2014.

Who wants to join me?
