this is why I like treadmills...

Last Saturday Dan and I decided we needed to embrace the sunshine we've been receiving by going for a walk.

Also, our truck was getting new tires, so why not just walk and pick it up.

I had to pee by time we made it to the truck.

It only took us fifteen minutes to get there.

and this is why I don't exercise outside.

because you never know when your bladder is going to be all "dude, I hope there's a bathroom near by or you are wearing an adult diaper, cause it's go time."

My biggest fear is that I'll be really far from my house, and I'll need to go rightfreakinnow, and I have to try and get home without wetting myself.

Dan thinks I have the bladder the size of a peanut.

I just think it's worn out from years of holding it during the Lord Of The Rings movies.

because I paid good money to watch Orlando Bloom kicking ass in a Lady Gaga wig.

Seriously, holding your pee for 3 hours while drinking like a Hobbit is bound to cause some damage.

current obsessions

A list of things I spend hours watching/browsing instead of doing laundry, cooking, cleaning or anything else remotely productive. 

Yes, I've always liked her, but I had forgotten how freakin' awesome she is.
(ps...she swears like a sailor...which just makes me love her even more. you've been warned.)

(if you want to watch another awesome Sara video, check out her Single Ladies cover.)

 Great for those times when I'm too impatient to order books online.

Netflix for iPhone 
Now I don't have to stop watching tv when I go the bathroom. thank you, technology.
I recently watched Love Hurts featuring my tv boyfriend, Johnny Pacar...
eye sexin'...he's doin' it right.
(screencap from Make It Or Break It. *melts*)

Yes, I found another social network-y time-suck.

I cannot express how much I love this blog. It is hilarious.
Bonus: I found this clip via STFUParents and I died laughing. You're welcome.

Here's hoping you get through the day without dropping your phone, or a baby. Happy Monday.

young adult novels aren't helping my street cred...

One thing my husband and I have in common is our love for collecting books.

We dream of someday having a library in our home.

I imagine we will have our own sections...mine will be filled with Young Adult novels about vampires, dystopian societies, and psychic teenagers.

I'm so philisophical and deep. Obviously.

Whenever we go on vacation we buy a crapton of books.

We pay for extra bags because we buy at least a suitcase full.

Have you been to Powell's Books? It's like heaven.
You know, if heaven smelled like old paper and hipsters.

Plus, I need books to read while traveling... a.k.a. sitting in the SeaTac airport for 4 hours.

Honestly, SeaTac is the worst place to have a late night lay over.
There are like 4 plugins in the entire freakin' airport. Who does that?!

Anyways, my airport read this year was Matched by Ally Condie

If you enjoyed the Hunger Games series, you will most likely enjoy this book.

Unfortunately, the sequel, Crossed, doesn't hit the shelves until November.

I bought quite a few books this year, and since then I've bought a few sequels.

So I've decided to start reviewing the books I read here on the blog.

Now, I will warn you, not only am I terrible at reading books in a timely manner, I also totally suck at updating the blog.

My goal is to read them all by the end of the year.

I love setting myself up for failure.

My goodreads account will give you a clue as to which books I'll be reviewing. Stay tuned...
