I'm really NOT feeling it, but I know it's just a mental thing, but today we're going back to the YMCA. It's such an odd thing...when I'm in the habit of going daily, then it's no struggle to go, and in fact, is my preferred routine. But once that routine has been broken, I have to force myself to go again. And really, all I do is walk the track with my 19 lb 3 oz baby, so it's not like I'm working hard or exerting myself in any way. What I'm saying is, I have no reason to dread the YMCA, besides the fact that I just happen to be l-a-z-y. 
did you notice how I snuck in the results of Isabelle's weigh-in yesterday? Redbox codes go to Kara for being the closest without going over, Tracy for being the closest (only one ounce over!) and Gail for being my newest follower! :) I will email you ladies your code today! 

In addition to that, I was tagged yesterday by the fabulous Megan to do a list of all my favorite things. I know some people think lists like this are kind of silly, but I enjoy them because I think it allows me to "know" everyone a little bit better. Yes, I love the well thought out, well-written posts, but the little lists often touch on things you'd never write about. 
If you'd like to copy and post this list, I'll read about your favorites too!

  3. These kinds of posts are fun! I love Christmas, Chipotle, Jodi Picoult, and HP too! Simply the best. :)

  4. Hey! THANKS for the RedBox Code! You are too sweet...and funny! :)

    We have a few things in common...I love Friends!

    I'm not from Kansas OR Texas...BUT...my dad was born and raised in TX (I still have family there). My parents met at Baylor and her parents moved to Dallas. My brother was born there. THEN...my dad was called to be pastor of a church in Chanute, KS. My sister was born there. They lived there a while until they moved to Miami. Then I came along. SO...every time my parents moved they had another baby. They stopped moving. Ha!

    I don't watch TV much either (who has time? oh...yeah...well, maybe if I wasn't blogging!)

    Love your wedding colors. My favorite color (for a while now is turquoise/aqua-ish. :)

    I'm with you on the favorite kind of music.

    This was fun to get to know you. Maybe I should do one.

  5. What a sweet post! I love the season summer. It's definitely my favorite and reading is another of my favorite things to do with my free time. I like the wedding colors you had. They are gorgeous together! Glad I could learn a little bit more about you!

  6. Cute post! I want a Kindle. Does it light up? We're flying back to the States in July and I'd much rather take something small like that than have to lug books, along with all the other junk I'll be carrying.

  7. Yay...so glad that you did this!! : ) I loved learning more about you!! I can't believe you like the summer...it's SO hot. Haha. I don't like to sweat. I'm a dork.

    I love your wedding colors. That picture is awesome! I didn't know you were in Texas. Is that where y'all are now??
