Signs of A Singelton continued

 It's that time again. Time for me to express some of the more embarrassing and entertaining parts of living alone and being single.

  1. Shaving your legs in the shower and almost slipping. Resulting with visions of your body being found days later naked only because other tenants complained about the loss of water. 
  2. Changing your dinner plans because you can’t open the bottle of whatever that you need.
  3. Wondering where all the dishes in the sink came from, oh yea from me. 
  4. Showing up to a couples wedding shower with your dog as your date...
  5.  Having a friend set up a blind friend date because shes tired of hearing that you don't have anything to do on Friday night.
  6. Telling yourself the increase in wine intake is because of all the awesome Pinterest projects you can't wait to do.
  7. Enjoying the fact that if you need to strip down after an intense work out with the fan on high no one is going to complain.
  8. Netflixs and Hulu feeds that only have shows you want to watch...awesome
  9.  Alone time no longer has an extra special value since alone time is all the time. 
It's good and bad... at 3am when T- Monster wakes me up for no reason it's bad. When I want to watch a marathon of Parenthood ,because I'm newly addicted with a glass of red wine it's a wonderful thing.
This experience is making me excited to have a roommate again. Countdown to whenever that is!!!

If You Really Knew Me

Lately,  I have seen a lot of " If you really knew me"  blog segments and  as someone who loves to read and give useless facts I decided to join the party even if I'm tardy for the party. Even though the only 3 followers I have do actually in real life know me. I'm sure you girls will love it anyways. Here we go!!

I prefer to drink my liquids through a straw( reduces mess and teeth stains).
I will only drink filtered ice cold water because I hate water( through a straw).
I have recently discovered I enjoy being tan and blonde...I am  naturally the exact opposite.
I only like to watch college football and by that I mean I really only watch Baylor football.
 I love my dog, T- Monster, more than I love most people.  
I am a die hard Hanson fan. New and old music.
I can't stand loud breathers so much that I have to turn my iPod way up when I run or I'll stop just because I can hear my own breathing. 
I have countless bruises and cuts on my legs and arms at any given time that I can not tell you how they got there.
I am obsessed with Pinterest. 
 I love ice cream and cupcakes but don't really like cake.
I love iced coffee...like I get sad when it gets too cold to drink it love it.
I have countless nicknames because people can't say my real name and I get tired of correcting people on it.
I had a Victoria Secret stripped bathroom in college. The rest of the apartment was teal and lime green.  I was told it looked like the inside of a pinata.
I HATE people who are ALWAYS late. Sometimes late happens, always late is a character flaw.
I believe in hand written thank you notes as a must. 
I am a pre-teen at heart apparently. All my favorite shows and books cater to that age range.
I just ran my 1st 5k in July. I run my 2nd at the end of the month. My goal is to do it in 35 mins. 
 I always need sexual innuendos explained to me therefore if I say something dirty it was probably an accident. 

Enjoy the random facts.

Debating if its smart to put up pictures of me on the blog. Smart = safe. Any feedback?

Best piece of advice

I know that the first person that I kiss won't be nearly as important as the  last person I kiss.

Amen to that.

Sounds to me like he was already  broken when you met him and no matter how many times you patch him up, sooner or later he was going to fall apart again.

-Jodi Picoult

This is why I read because someone else will put into words what I need to hear.

Nerd Day and Enjoying Food

I have lost 33 lbs in the last 4 months.  This is awesome except that this past month I only lost 4 lbs.  I am so frustrated. I am frustrated not only because I am not losing weight as quickly as I was but because  I know why.

ME. It's all me. My calorie goal for a day is 1240. I have not been eating 1240 a day. I have been eating around 1500 a day or less than going out on the weekends with friends. I know how to eat the 1240 a day I just don't want to . I've enjoyed going out to eat or to a wine bar.  I have not gained any weight but I am only half way to my goal. It's just frustrating to know that I am standing in my own way. I went grocery shopping and made out a meal plan. Now its time to get my butt back in gear and keep it out of Torchy's , Hey Cupcake, Papa John's and Uncorked.

Total nerd moment on Saturday, the weather here in Texas was an amazing 80 degrees. For those of you not from the Lone Star State you may not see the awesomeness of this. Friday it was 103....it had been a triple digit temp for most of the summer. 80 degrees felt like a day straight from heaven.  Looking out my window at the gorgeous day I suddenly only wanted to be laying outside under a huge tree reading a book. So that's what I did. I went and got a library card  ( because I was out of good books) and then went to the local park. I laid under a tree on a blanket all afternoon reading Sing You Home by Jodi Picoult. It was a perfect day. It may have been wasted but it was wasted in the best way.
 If you don't believe me check out the pure joy on T-Monster's face. She ran around the whole afternoon visiting different blankets to get and give lots of free love.

If only I could have more days like Saturday followed by losing 30 more lbs even quicker than the first 30.

Greatest Fears

Sometimes I worry....

Most of the time I worry that this is the new normal ....

When I am tired of being an adult this is how I feel...

Sometimes I really do worry that Disney set my standards too high. When this is my standard...
