Movie vs Book

Last week was pretty crazy at work. Home late each night and a lot of events! Blogging had to take a back seat for the week. I focused on getting to sleep early and squeezing in some work outs OH and enjoying a few Valentine’s day treats Winking smile.  It was a good week, but I’m more than happy to welcome this event-free week.

No plans this weekend except to hang out with my boyfriend was the perfect way to recuperate.  We ate a few delicious meals, saw Safe Haven, and were a couple of lazy bums.

Since I saw Zero Dark Thirty with Sean, it was his turn to see Safe Haven with me. I really enjoyed the movie! After reading the book, I was excited to see how it would play out on the screen. Of course it wasn’t as good as the book, but for the most part it really did a good job capturing the visions I had while reading. If I can, I ALWAYS read the book before seeing the movie. To me, it’s so much more exciting to see what you envisioned come to life. I loved Julianne as Katie.


I finished the weekend off with church, errands, and getting ready for the week ahead. And enjoyed some homemade pizza and wine.

Have a great Monday! Are you a book or movie first person?


Mindless Monday

How was everyone’s weekend? Did anyone go to any great Super Bowl parties? My weekend was pretty fabulous. I didn’t have to work any weddings or events which is always nice. I got to spend pretty much the entire weekend with Sean which doesn’t happen that often so that was great too! We enjoyed the weather (well, Sean got very burned…which you wouldn’t think would happen in 60 degree weather!), I cheered him on in The Warrior Dash, and we spent 2 lazy nights at the house.

Only a little dirty, right? I tried to keep my distance.  Him and his friends had a lot fun, but it took them quite a while to finish. He said there were a few obstacles they had to wait in a long line for to complete. If I was running this race that would have definitely frustrated me. I was happy I didn’t partake in the muddiness. I raced in one back in August and I guess not enough time has passed for me to be ready to do another Winking smile.


The Super Bowl in this house was very low key. My mom and I just threw a few things together. Obviously, my favorite part of the game was Beyonce’s performance. She is SUCH a good performer. I got so excited when Destiny’s Child came on stage!!! I ❤ Beyonce.

I guess I had more thoughts today than most Monday’s. Let’s make it a good week, shall we?

Would you ever participate in a mud run?

Luke Bryan

Even though I had to work this weekend and I didn’t get to see my boyfriend, it was still a great weekend. Friday night I caught up on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (those ladies are crazy) and called it an early night which I desperately needed. Saturday was a great day. It was pretty much everything I could want in a weekend. I had a lazy morning, went for an awesome run, did a few chores, went shopping, then attended the Luke Bryan concert at the Amway Center! That is pretty much a perfect day in my book.

Oh, and the weather was peeeerfect.

Luke Bryan was such a good show. He was so fun and entertaining, he even pulled up people from the crowd onto the stage. And I guess he’s kinda cute too Winking smile My sister and I had a blast.

Thompson Square and Florida Georgia Line opened for him, but Kristin’s friend who works at the Amway Center informed us Luke wouldn’t be on until much later, so we decided to show up to the concert just in time to see him. From those around us we heard that Thompson Square and Florida Georgia Line put on great performances too. The Amway Center is a HUGE venue, probably one of the largest in the US and it always amazes me when it sells out. How amazing must that feel for the performer? Just looking around at the huge crowds of fans in cowboy hats and boots was entertaining in itself. Country concerts are so fun—I can’t wait until my next one!

If you could describe your ideal weekend, what would it be?

Mindless Monday

Good morning! Who else is dragging this morning? I feel like I’m going to need lots of coffee today. This week is going to be a crazy one for me at work…we have a big event happening tomorrow and I  believe a 16 hour work day is in my near future. Yes, much coffee will be needed indeed. At least The Bachelor is on tonight? I felt kind of bad for Kacie B last week, but at the same time she made absolutely NO sense when she brought up other girls to Sean. COME ON! She should know that is a huge no-no. Who else has been watching? Do you have any favorites yet? I loved the date at six flags (I can’t remember her name, but she is becoming a favorite) I also like Selma. Definitely not into Tierra, my feelings could change after tonight’s episode though, we will see. Let me know your thoughts!
