Let's Get Acquainted!

It sure has felt like Spring here lately! It was sunny and 70 degrees today, and about 72 yesterday. Too bad tomorrow it's supposed to be down in the 50's again. Anywayyy... I'm trying out my very FIRST linky, and saying a prayer it works! Don't laugh... I'm new to this! :) Latoya Reed from Flying into First Grade is hosting a linky party to meet fellow bloggers, so I'm taking this opportunity to do just that. To join, tell about yourself using your initials, and comment on the blogs of 2 others. Here goes... :)

Mom... I'm not going to lie, being a mom and waking up to my Lilly Love is the best part of day! She's sassy, sweet and everything in between. Today she's exactly 18 months old, and her favorite TV show is Yo Gabba Gabba. I can sing any Gabba song you want, just ask!
Gabba apparel from Target! If I had a "T" in my name it would DEFINITELY stand for Target! :)

Lunges... we have a love/hate relationship. I truly do love to workout, Crossfit (or Crossfit type workouts) being my favorite. I've never been an athlete or anything even close, but going to the gym makes my heart happy. Time, however, is of course the issue. Typically I find ways to workout in my house, such as lunges in the hallway, working around toys/kids/dogs.. or doing squats using a pink car/walker of Lilly's. Hey--do whatcha gotta go! My husband is in the Army, and on the weekends we usually go on family runs or ruck marches. This past Saturday we walked/jogged (okay.. mainly walked) a 4.5 mile trail. He carried his 45 pound ruck on his back, and I wore a 25 pound vest.. but since I pushed the stroller, it's like we're ever... right?

This is seriously the motto of CrossFit... I have indeed puked, and cried (when I got home)...  Love it!

Laughter... I find humor in most anything, most of which are inappropriate. I won't lie.. when I have a kid's name on my roster I can't pronounce, I have to laugh.. and text a friend. Or when a kid's name is not pronounced the way it's spelled, I laugh at that, too. And on Facebook/Pinterest, all of the pictures with quotes like the ones below make me chuckle, too. As a teacher, though, we all need laughter!

Well... that's a little bit about me. Hope to hear from you soon! :))))


  1. Hi Mandy! I must say, when I found Grey's Anatomy on Netflix, I thought the show was over. I didn't know they were still making episodes! So I am on season 5 now, but when I get to the end of 8, I will have to wait for them to put more episodes up too :(

    I'm glad you found this linky through my blog! It's a nice, easy one to get started with. I like to work out at home too. At the end of a long day, when I still have so much to do, driving to the gym just isn't gonna work. I like to use workout DVD's. No excuses when you can exercise in your living room!

  2. Hey, about the Grey's... Hulu Plus! That's all I can say!

    Loved your post. I LOL'ed at the ecards. I crack up at the "said no (insert appropriate title here) ever" ones!! Thanks for the laughs! I think "Mom" is the best part of life too! :)

  3. I LOVE those ecards! And I'm a new follower of yours, too!
