The Boy Behind The Blog

I'm excited today to link up with Mal and Stephanie for Boys Behind the Blog.  I always love to see what the guys have to say! Tim didn't really seem as excited as I am about this, but he did it anyways. Here are the questions for this month....

1. Who is your favorite band/musician?
It's a toss up between Chevelle and Five Finger Death Punch.

2. What was your first CD/tape?
Guns N Roses-Appetite for Destruction

3. Who was your first concert?
Garth Brooks (he really didn't want to admit this!)

4. What is your favorite Thanksgiving food?
Vicki's Pecan Pie (when it sets up!)

5. Finish the sentence: I am thankful for...
Vicki and the kids. (Aww! Isn't he sweet?) 

Thanks to Tim for participating, even though he acted like it was going to kill him. I guess he better get used to it. :)

Sunday Social.

Hello friends!! I hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was filled with much laziness and I did manage to get some things around the house cleaned and organized. Izzie and I enjoyed the weekend watching movies and snacking on Ben & Jerry's Pumpkin Cheesecake ice cream. It's so yummy!!!

I'm back again for Sunday Social. This weeks questions are:

1. Name 4 jobs you’ve had in your life.
     Waitress at Pizza Hut in high school, I worked at a Hallmark store, I was a bartender, which might have been my favorite job so far and now I work as a Certified Assessment Clerk in the local County Assessor's office. I know, I'm the enemy!

2. Name 4 movies you would watch over and over.
    Serendipity, Sweet November, Bridesmaids and Hunger Games.

3. Name 4 places you have lived.
    I have only lived in Nebraska. I've lived in the really teeny tiny town of Hordville, and then I've lived in Fairbury and currently in Aurora and I've also lived out in the country a few times. I would love to have a house in the country again!

4. Name 4 of your favorite foods.
    Guacamole, my Mom's Spanish rice, my recipe for Shepherd's pie and anything else in the Mexican food category. I seriously crave Mexican food ALL. THE. TIME!

5. Name 4 things you always carry with you.
    Phone, wallet, chapstick and lotion.

6. Name 4 places you have been on vacation.
     Toronto-band trip in high school-I want to go back soooooo bad!
      El Paso, Texas-one of my favorite places to go.
      Estes Park, Colorado-so incredibly beautiful. Tim and I have talked about getting married here!
      Hmmm, I think I went to the Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri one time too. It was with a boyfriend I try to forget.

Getting in shape with Dr. Scholl's Active Series!

I've been quite unhappy with my body for several years now. I'm not overweight, but I just am not satisfied. I have even been asked when I'm "due" twice and I wasn't pregnant either time. Sure, friends and family always tell me I'm not fat, I look fine and etc. but that's not how I feel. My clothes keep getting tighter and my self esteem keeps getting lower.

The problems are:
1. I hate exercising.
2. I have no motivation.
3. I don't want to change my eating habits.

Too bad for me, right? I don't think I've mentioned this before, but Tim is really into MMA and he has had several fights. He actually has another one at the beginning of December, so he is really trying to eat right and workout/train right now. We have a room in our basement that we call the "workout" room. It doesn't get used as much as it should though. We bought a treadmill a year ago and have lots of weights down there too.  We just recently bought a tv/dvd combo for down there too and also a couple of Jillian Michael's dvds. I bought the Kickboxing one and also the 30 day shred. Tim made me workout last night. :( I about died.

Very very dangerous!!  I was only able to do half of the workout last night. I felt so stupid but oh well, I have to start somewhere!

It's a good thing that I was recently lucky enough to be able to participate in Influenster's Dr. Scholl's Active Series VoxBox!!  Influenster sent me a pair of Dr. Scholl's Active Series Replacement Insoles to try out!

There they are in my shoes! And let me tell you, while the rest of my body is hurting because of Jillian, my feet are NOT!!

  • Reduces shock by 40%
  • Designed with Triple Zone Protection for your ball of foot, arch, and heel
  • Helps relieve and prevent pain from shin splints, runner's knee and plantar fasciitis
  • Helps reduce foot odor with SweatMax™ technology
You get the inserts and then it instructs you on how to cut them down to your shoe size. It was very easy and they work very well. I'm excited to have these to use now that I really honestly plan on getting in shape. I just got my shoes in August and never really thought I would need inserts but they help a lot!!  I really recommend going out and getting some for your shoes too!


"I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes."

Sunday Social!!

I hope you are all having a great Sunday. I decided to link up with Neely and Ashley again for Sunday Social!!

Here are this week's questions:

1. What is currently on your wish list?
    I am really wanting the new iPhone 5. My 4S is still working pretty good, so being the cheap-o that I am, I'm not getting a new one yet.  I'm also really wanting a couple new pairs of boots.

2. Share a new iPhone, droid, iPad app that you have recently discovered that we all need.
     I really haven't discovered any must have apps lately. If anyone else has, let me know!!

3. What is a new fall tv show that you have added to your dvr?
     Oh my gosh. We are addicted to tv over here. Lets see, we have Sleepy Hollow, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, Mom, Trophy Wife and Witches of East End.

4. Share your social media links so we can follow you. (Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram, etc) Tell us which is your favorite and why.
     Here is my FacebookInstagram and my Twitter. I actually have a love/hate relationship with all three. I am on Facebook the most, because I enjoy stalking. ;) That's also where I can connect with my family that's all over the US. I hate some of the people I have on there, they annoy me greatly, in fact, I discussed this here. Instagram I really love looking at everyone's pictures. I don't like it because I have a hard time putting pictures up. I'm really trying though. And Twitter, I never seem to have anything witty to say, and I do follow some funny people but I always seem to miss the funny tweets. I guess I'm not on there enough. I would love to have new followers on any of the 3 though. :)

5. What is a tv show, movie, or song that you could watch or listen to over and over and never get tired of? 
     Revenge, Revolution, Game of Thrones and any of the American Horror Story's are my favorite shows that I can't get enough of. Movies I never get tired of are Serendipity and I recently started watching Uptown Girls again! Oh I how I miss Brittany Murphy!! Izzie loves to watch it with me because of the ballet in it. :)

I hate that tomorrow is Monday already. I hate having to leave my house. I want to just be a hermit forever! Ha ha. Talk to you later!!
