Logan Problem #1

I have morphed into a legitimate pig since we have moved. When Andy is at work, I tend to go into this weird mode where I just shove everything in arms reach into my mouth. It’s such a problem. That box of oreos in my pantry? Oh ya… GONE. And, I am pretty positive that my heart rate has not increased in result of physical activity in weeks. That is, unless, you count me BOOKING it up our stairs (always skipping a step like a 5 year old. you know it’s fun and you’ve done it), or the really neat anxiety attacks moving causes.

Anyway, long story not really short, I have decided in order to be healthy I need to prep.

We went to the store & bought things for:

Taco Tuesday! The first one we’ve had. I’ve never made tacos before, so I was kind of nervous. Handling meat freaks my shit out… But they turned out absolutely delicious. I thought I’d never say this… But they tasted just like my moms :)

Oh and don’t forget my huge glass filled to the rim with ice cold cranberry juice.

And this green smoothie that surprisingly did not freak my shit out.

So we are going to be making healthy, delicious, all around meals for dinner hopefully 3 times a week or more. And I am going to make myself smoothies so that I don’t eat & then feel like my stomach is eating itself 2 hours later.

When I was living in Salt Lake I was going to the gym almost every morning before work with Kelsey. Prior to the move I unintentionally let my gym habit slip. But, I am determined to get back into it. I haven’t joined the Rec center here yet, so Kelsey sent me this fabulous (ok kickass) site. I can’t wait to start, they have quick & effective videos that hold the attention span of a 5 year old. I’d give it a try. After all, Victorias Secret did just send out the swim issue… Uh ohhh.

Take A Step Into My Office

Today I woke up in an awesome mood & I was ready to work. It’s been really busy, so my day through Instagram is the best you’re going to get. I have some studying to do and I need to run some errands as well. I hope you’re all having a beautiful Tuesday! It’s gorgeous here in Logan, has been all week. If I had a dog, I’d walk it (or even a cat… ya I’m ‘that girl’, don’t judge me) Anyway, check out this song that I can’t stop playing. Dance around your house, jump on the bed, live a little. Everyone is always so serious. All my love until next time, xoxo Bee

A zen kind of morning

Told you it was a nightmare! But it’s my nightmare, and I love it:)

You know you have a nail polish problem when you touch up your nails and want a new look an hour later..

Lists run my world. This weeks is not messing around.

I decided we should have something other then tonys pizza & beer for dinner (classy, I know). Tonight I made baked chicken, garlic potatoes, corn, and steamed carrotsl. I always have way too much meat leftover at dinner, and Andy can never have enough. We balance each others plates out perfectly.

I worked, napped (I know, I’m spoiled), did laundry, cooked a delicious dinner, completed my first assignment for class tomorrow, and am now ending the day with my best friend and love of my life. Can I get a hell ya? Or a ‘thank you universe’ is suffice ♥

Tomorrow… First day of school, cause’ momma didn’t raise no fool. XOXO

Ps. My mom is funnier then your mom

Who Will You Be?

Ever since I was wee I have found these 10 words to be the creators of an extremely broad, limitless path; ‘What do you want to be when you grow up?’  Whether it would be a teacher, coach, family member, or someone who was simply curious would look me in the eyes waiting for my response I would just sit there, quiet & absorbed. Yet my mind was racing, my heart pounding. It was as if someone had injected me with an electric tonic that made a movie of every dream I’ve ever had play vividly right before my eyes. How can one narrow this movie into one scene? One scene where we find ourselves happy, successful, & truly alive? 

In elementary school I dreamed of being a zoologist. I would spend hours in the school library during recess reading about Dr. Francine “Penny” Patterson, the woman who taught Koko the gorilla sign language. I wanted to do the unthinkable.

I then found my passion on the field, playing the beautiful game of Fútbol, or ‘Soccer’. I knew I wanted to pursue a future in the game, and I knew I wouldn’t stop until I could no longer physically play. That day came and I cried, I grew, and I moved forward.

Shortly after, I discovered my young soul might lack in math class at times, but never in passion. I began to express myself by writing and fell in love with the joy of the American language. That is when I knew that whatever I decided to ‘be’ when I ‘grew up’ would entail communicating, helping, embracing, learning from, and loving people. Not just my kind of people, or the right type of people, but people in general. I want to be educated on all walks of life, free of judgement, & far from ever being ‘satisfied’. And at the end of the day, I’ve come to realize that it isn’t ‘what’ I will be, but who I will be. I hope to be remembered by the love that often makes me feel like I could explode, & the things I do to create that in others.
“Every day I discover more and more beautiful things.
It’s enough to drive one mad. I have such a desire to do everything, my head is bursting with it.”
