Flashback Friday: St. Patrick’s Day
Good evening ladies! How was everyone’s Friday? My Spring Break (and break from Work) is over. I only have two more days. So sad.
I had a wonderful day today. I got to sleep in and then did some exercise at home. Yes, I did a workout video. I really wasn’t feeling like making my way to my the gym near my mom’s house. Last time I was there, my car got broken into. On Christmas Eve…at the start of the biggest blizzard in Oklahoma in a long time. (Speaking of blizzards, it was 70 degrees here today, and is supposed to snow at least 6 inches tomorrow. Oklahoma is crazy).
So, I pulled out a video I had never done before. Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred.
I tend to be somewhat of an exercise snob. I even tend to look down upon exercise videos, simply because I have never found one that I liked. But not this one. It kicked my booty and got me sweaty. Me, thinking Im a Fitness Rock star, did the Level 3 workout. It was very do-able but I got a great workout and I loved it. I even did jump lunges–which I know Susan hates.
All in all, I loved it. It was about 20 minutes long. Combined a little bit of strength, cardio, and abs. Short, sweet, and to the point. Just the way I like it.
After that I went to Sam’s with my mom and got some amazing berries. I am SO happy that it is summer. I could sit and eat berries all day long. She got a ton because we made fresh blackberry cobbler tonight which was delicous. It made the house smell delicious too.
The rest of the night will be filled with relaxation and gearing up for tomorrow…the big snow storm. I also have a little photoshoot with my boyfriend. He has some studio space tomorrow so he will be setting up the backdrop, putting up the lights and practicing his photography skills on moi. I’m a little nervous…hope I can relax and give him some good shots!
*Sorry for the lack of shots today, just didn’t have my camera out much*
However, I do have a Flashback for you. I went through my old computer today and came across some old pictures so I figured I could finally do a little Flashback for you from my college days. I don’t have many pictures, but there are a few from St. Patty’s Day past.
My craziest St. Patrick’s Day was with my best friend Ashley from college. It was our Freshman year and we decided to go to the Big Apple. We were out strollin the town when we met two “older” (prob like 23-24) guys from Ireland. They were on vacation. We thought it was meant to be..Irish guys on St. Patrick’s Day…what could be better?! So, we spent the night with them barhopping to many different Irish Pubs in New York City drinking car bombs, green beer, and Long Island Iced Teas. Illegally I might add. Then, we woke up the next morning with a complete hangover and went and had brunch. We felt so Sex & The City.
I was 19 in that picture. Ah, to be young again. Haha j/k. Now I could barhop legally…the irony is I don’t even have the urge to now :).
Flashforward a few years to my first St. Patrick’s Day with Sean. We went out to a bar and basically just drank with his friends. He had a mohawk at this time and of course got lots of attention.
This year my St. Patrick’s Day was much tamer. Craziest thing I did was add an extra cup of Spinach to my smoothie to try to be a little festive. I’m quite the crazy one.
Since yesterdays “Would you Rather” was so fun…I thought I’d do another one.
Would you rather have super powers or have Christmas never end?
I’d rather have superpowers. That’s an easy one. Question is…what kind of superpowers? That’d be harder. I’d want to be able to fly or be invisble.
What do you think of exercise videos?
Last day to enter the notecard giveaway! I am drawing tomorrow at noon C.S.T.
