Donuts, Fiesta Salad and Skittles.

What up BFF’s!?!?!  Let’s talk about Monday.

After school I went on over to my Physical Therapy appointment.  The sister and I schedule our appointments at the same time so that we get to have a date together.  The two hours goes by speedy fast when you are talking the whole time and being hand-fed grapes by your niece while you are getting elctro-therapy.

I have trained these children well and they obey my every command.

Or do they obey me because we promise them donuts if they are good during the appointment?

Remember how Billy and I had the sock debate?  Maybe I wouldn’t have two different lengths of socks if I followed his lead and matched all of my socks together but that would take organizational skills and maturity….maybe next year.  PS my lil niece will not take off her dollar store sun hat.

Dinner was quick because it was already 8 by the time I got home and I finally got to see my hunk of a husband.  I had a grilled chicken (leftover from last night) mexican fiesta salad.  All I needed was a pinata and my night would be complete…….

but then I checked my front porch and it was better than a pinata, the most BEAUTIFUL, recently 1/2 marathon PR’d SWEETEST DORRY @ LivingWithHealthyHungersent me a package of my favorite things.  Made my day and I laid for at least five minutes on the couch hugging them until I quickly demolished half of the goodies.  I have a problem and I am okay with it.  I also tore into the cocoa granola….heaven!! Thanks girl!!!

Getting my swim on this early morning…..I know, I know, I look so attractive in my swim cap, goggle face and bright red face from the chlorine…….it is hard work looking that good.  There will also be some ELLIPTICAL and spinning in my horizon.

Best thing about Monday: Beside’s donuts and eating din din with billster……I downloaded the ADELE ALBUM.  Um, absolutely amazing.  If you have a second, listen to this song and if it doesn’t give you goosebumps please get checked for low estrogen levels.

——————————————————————————-

What is your favorite song lately?

-Adele- Make You Feel My Love.

How are you getting your sweat on today?

Random question:  Do you text, call, email, tweet or facebook people the most?

-I think I text more than anything.

Do you have a favorite blanket?  Describe it to me.

-Billy’s Mom made us the above picture BYU blanket and I am obsessed. Fuzzy, warm, soft, hugable….the whole package.  I don’t know how I lived before it (+10 mother-in-law points for saying that right?!?!  Yes, my MIL keeps a running total of my points for things I say, good and bad:)

I haven't heard of the Adele song I'll have to check that out! My favorite song right now is ET by Katy Perry! I love her so much!!!

I'm definitely a texter as well! I don't have a twitter account – it looks too confusing to me! I am the facebook generation, I login every day :)

Love that hat your niece is wearing!!! I already got my sweat on this morning on the treadmill. I ran 19 miles (just joking 19-16 = 3 miles)!

My favorite blanket is a fleece finding nemo blanket that the Husband will not let me use. It's sad.

What is that cake your nephew is trying to eat? I want it!

My favorite song lately is probably Born This Way – Lady Gaga. I love her.

I probably email or text more than anything. I hate talking on the phone, unless it's to annoy Mike. that's my favorite.

My favorite blanket is this amazing down-filled, fleece number that my mom gave me because I kept trying to steal hers. I love it.

Today's workout will hopefully be an 8 miler if I can convince Mike to walk bungee after work :)

Favorite song lately would have to be King of Anything by Sarah Bareilles–I may listen to the same song on repeat for waaaay too long.
Run today, we'll see how far I manage…
I am a facebooker!
And I'm always cold so basically any blanket/sweater near me automatically becomes my favorite.
Donuts looks amazing!

I am also OBSESSED with blankets and Mike got me a new one for christmas…its a King size so its swallows me up and its that super soft microfleece material. Heaven.

I have the same blanket!! rachelle made it for me for Christmas one of the first years I was here…I LOVE it. Today I am hoping to run with my pup after work maybe on a trail somewhere so that she can run free. We will see how it goes :)

Hope you have a good day!!

Bahhaha I went for a swim today as well and let me just say that it is hard to get your flirt on with the hot guy in the next lane when you are wearing your swim cap and goggles :P

i def. text the most. i'm an addict. i totally wish i worked somewhere that most of the work could be done by text.

oh, wait, i also g-mail chat. A LOT. like probably more than i actually talk in a day. my mom and mr. dawn are both on their computers for most of the day and we just shoot chats back and forth like crazy. news stories, youtube videos, we discuss dancing with the stars…you know the important parts of life :)

I had a fiesta salad TWICE last week. It was delicious!

Marry Me by Train is my favorite song right now :)

I do a healthy mix of text and call. I don't do FB often and don't have Twitter.

I'm going to run for the first time in 2 weeks! Yippee! My foot is finally not hurting! I'll think of you when I am :)

Your family sounds like a lot of fun. I love the face your nephew is making with that cookie. Too funny!

Hmm favorite song lately… "Somewhere With You" by Kenny Chesney

Sweat today = running after work!

I text people the most. I love texting actually. Facebook is second. Phone calls are last, unless you're one of my grandparents. Then I will call you.

My favorite blanket is my Ole Miss blanket that has different pictures of the buildings stitched into it.

Reply

I love the band 'Blonde Redhead', the album called 23. It basically rocks my world. Adele is amazing, though.

I'm getting my sweat on running around the E.R. Fun times.

I text. I don't talk on the phone. Takes too much time! I barely use 100 minutes on my phone each month!

Favorite blanket? The one my aunts and cousins made me for my wedding. It's a beautiful patch-work quilt… in Fall colors. I love it so much!

Reply

Hands down: Marry Me by Train. I cry like a baby every time.

Got my sweat on with a early morning gym sesh of weights and cross training!

Text by far.

Actually I never thought about the fact that I had a fav blanket until you mentioned it. But I do: My Aunt made it for me for my wedding! It matches my family room perfectly and I am in love with it!

I have a blanket made of that same fabric!!! I LOVE it!! Go Cougars!

My favorite song right now is Howlin' for You by The Black Keys.
I get my sweat on these days by running, and hopefully workout DVDs if I ever get my rear in gear.
my favorite blanket is my Nightmare Before Christmas one that my Dad got me for my birthday way back in high school

Reply

I got my sweat on with a run around the cherry blossoms in DC with the tri newbies I'm coaching. It was so fun to see how excited they got about the cool run.

I'm definitely a texter. I hate phone calls and never listen to my voicemail.

my favorite blanket is a quilt my non crafty mom made for me when I graduated high school. she got one of her seamstress friends to help her and spent months working on this beautiful blanket with all my fave colors to take to college with me.

I'm a texter all the way. Embarrassing. I'm glad your day was well and i hope your swim is the bomb.com.

I love that you have sister dates!! Those are the best… though I try to steer clear of electro-therapy as our main activity! And who says baby blankets have to disappear when you hit elementary school? high school? college? marriage?? My yellow care bear blanket will be buried at my side! Embarrassing?? My husband thought so when he found out… I normally try not to share this with the entire world but I guess I am having a bold moment!

Lately I'm loving: Jar of Hearts by Christina Perri.

This morning I did 400m repeats. Hard stuff!

I text the most – except with my lil sis – we fb and fb chat nonstop (well, except when she's in school, hehe)

I flipping LOVE blankets. My current fav is a red/green/white crocheted afghan. Yes it's xmas themed, but I use it all the time. I won it in a raffle for the Hope For Heather charity 2 years ago. The raffle was in syracuse, and my mom didn't tell me I won and surprised me with it at christmas! :) its so heavy, and hand made. Perfect snuggle time!

My fav song right now is "That I Do" by Wye Oak…and also their new song "Civilian".

Text…definitely.

I love love love her song "Someone Like You" on the new CD! It's been on repeat in my car for at least 2 weeks now and isn't going anywhere anytime soon… I have lots of favorite blankets too! Yours is cute – they mean so much more when they come from family, don't they? I have one from my mum, one from my BF's mum and one from each of my grandmas, and all of them were handmade. Thanks for reminding me how lucky I am to have them!

Hey Janae!!!

I just listened to that song & I love love love it! I've got to get it!

Got my sweat on this morning with my friend the spin bike for an hour and elliptical for 30 minutes & watched Spirit of the Marathon! So motivating!

That salad looks sooo good!

I have two favorite blankies! My pink snuggie my mom got me for Christmas that I didn't want at first & now we are inseparable! Then an old burgundy fuzzy blanket that my hubby had before we got married. It's kinda like a sleeping bag but soft & no zipper. Confused?

HAVE A GREAT DAY GIRLY!!

I text & skype the most. I have a few international friends, and skype is awesome to talk to them.
My fav blanket is a super warm, green/blue striped blanket that I made in high school. A bunch of my friends & I had a blanket making party where we made the tie blankets – so fun!

Reply

I ADORE my thick, cozy comforter. It's safe to say I am fully obsessed with it.

I definitely text the most. I hate talking on the phone!

I just "discovered" Adele last month and LOVE her. Rolling in the Deep is my current fav top 40 song, though I am digging bruno mars the lazy song :)

Did a short 2.5 mile run at 5am today

Love my big down comforter

I am not a big communicator in general, lol, hate teh phone, but I do text in small quantities, ha.

I am praying for your poor leg!

I have aerobics later :) Yay! And I email work people the most, and probably text next, and facebook last (no tweeting for me)

I am a texter. But, if it's something long or personal, I definitely call.

I have these blankets from when I was a little girl. They are two quilts that my mom made. I love them. They are totally ratty and gross, but they are SO SOFT. I can't part with them. Husband used to complain about their ratty-ness, but now he loves them too. They are my go-to cuddle blanket.

I call my family, text my friends, and tweet my blog buddies. So as not to confuse you, if you get tweets from @Mrs_Stamps, that's me. Totally confusing that my names don't match, I know. But it's a play on my husband's college nickname, and I like him knowing that I belong to him (he belongs to me?), so I made myself the Mrs_college nickname!

YOU make my Monday's less "Monday like"!! Can your nieces and nephews get any cuter?!!! Geez!

My fav blanket is a soft beige-y one that matches Cooper–doesn't look as hairy that way!! :)

I've never heard this chick's version of this song before. Did you know it's an old Garth Brooks song? I used to absolutely love it. It's a lot better than this one, IMO.

Reply

Yay! So glad you received your package and love your treats! I know the purple socks aren't technical enough to wear on long runs, BUT THEY ARE PURPLE! And I have the same ones, so we're feet twins.

I love Adele, too.

I'm a big texter. It's so easy! But I email for longer things when I want to spill my guts to people.

I am on the couch covered in my favorite blanket that I sort of stole from Billy. It's the softest thing in the world and it keeps me so warm. :)

Reply

Love love love Adele!! "Make you feel my love" was my husband and my wedding song 11 years ago (dang I sound old) but by Billy Joel. Love it even more by her.

Huge texter here. I don't like sacrificing my time with my kids to gab on the phone so it's the next best thing. Quick little one liners to friends and fam, and we're good to go!

We have 2 blankets just like yours (the 2 fleece blankets tied together), one is NHL teams, other is princesses my mom made for my kids. Yup, supposed to be for the kids…hmmm blankets and couch calling my name.

Reply

Garth Brooks sing the same song in the movie Hope Floats. Love the movie and the song.

I am reading your blog with my fleece blanket on my lap…they are wonderful.

Love your blog! Keep it coming.

I live in Australia…It's about 8am in the morning here and after reading your blog post I am craving donuts BIG TIME haha..24/7 sugar cravings..

I actually don't have a favourite song lately..I've been a bit out of touch with music lately. Must fix that!

I also have a nice (sarcasm) injury myself at the moment – strained IT band and hamstring problems so tonight I will be walking to the gym, spin class, walking on treadmill / hitting the cross trainer while watching the biggest loser..

I definitely text the most…I annoy my boyfriend ALL day with texts..

I do have a favourite blanket..Well doona..I've had it since I was young, it's has a pretty ugly pattern on it but it's soft and I love it!

OMG. I LOVE ADELE! Love, love, love. She has been my partner through quite a few runs!

Bob Dylan wrote the song…

OMG I have the whole new Adele album. It is awesome!

What little I've heard of Adele is quite impressive. One of the guys at work thinks she is, "too British." I say there is no such thing.

I text A LOT. I kind of hate talking on the phone, although I'm starting to get in to Skype since I can have my hands free and do other stuff while talking.

Reply

I'm squeeling a little bit over here! You're new favorite song was our first dance song at my wedding! The Adele version and everything!
