LSU vs Auburn...what is truly important.

This may be just another picture to you, but for me...
it is a moment in time I get to share with my lil' LSU gal!

For you, it is a national sports story at the link under the pic)
and you get to share it with her, too, but that is not the point of this story...LOL.

See that cutie with the "magenta-a form of purple" shirt on?
Holding up we're #1?
You see her?

I was so excited for this...I went frame by frame on my DVR to look for her in the end zone of the LSU/Auburn game...
and you know what?
I found her.

What a great story for her college scrapbook!
Geaux Tigers!

Couch to 5K

My hubs has started the Couch to 5k with me. I am already a W-unner, you know a person that will walk-run-walk-run until they reach their destination or time runs out...all depending on why and where they are running. Know what I mean?

I would like to think he has chosen to do this to keep me from being a sad, pitiful soul.
However, turns out he thinks he needs to "get rid of a few pounds".
I am running for that reason too, but also because I LOVE to run...
and I want to do a marathon one day.

Let's see how long this lasts?

2 gifts...1 week. What gives?

Last week my hubs surprised me with 2 presents,
and last night we marveled at them both.
One was a new spice rack.
He didn't think too much of the rack,
but liked the look of the bottles..I did, too.
We put all the spices in the bottles and then displayed them in our sweet, little kitchen.
Funny thing, My hubs eats NO spices...NONE...not ever!
I was having a ball just smelling them.
Imagine how I will feel when I use them?!!
The other gift was Madagascar vanilla beans; to make homemade vanilla extract.
This was a lovely time for us; slicing beans and filling jars with vodka.
Christmas gifts in 8 weeks.
We were so excited about making this stuff.
Probably like kids do when they start putting chocolate into milk,
but without having to wait 8 weeks.
(*Side note, I ask if he bought the Madagascar beans instead of the Mexican ones simply because of the movie Madagascar...he said, "you know I did". He likes to move it, move it!)
Anyway, I really love my hubs,
yet sometimes I just love "being" with my hubs.
We had a great weekend together.

Workout Tunes

I have to listen to music when I work out. In fact, if no one is around, I sing when I work out! Music is vital when trying to get your booty movin'.

When making a play list, keep in mind what you will probably do during the workout. For my warm-up, I like "happy" songs: I Gotta Feeling-Black Eyed Peas, My Hallelujah Song-Julianne Hough, and Airplanes-B.o.B featuring Hayley Williams.
However, when I start to really get the blood flowing and the calories burning, I want music that reflects that: Don't Stop Believin'-Journey, Save a Horse-Big & Rich, and maybe something from the Top Gun soundtrack...LOL.

My cool down music is normally something that reflects a pay-off for my hard work: anything from Wicked, Coming Around Again-Carly Simon, or my fave...One Hot Mama by Trace Adkins!
Truly, it does not matter what it is. It just needs to inspire you!
Post a song here...that does just that:
Inspires you!
