excuse me while I ramble

 Up there is my life in photos.  Down there is life in my brain. Just ramblings.

I still refer to my best friend as "my best friend" in conversation. Is that allowed when I'm 26? To use that terminology, I mean. Do you still have a best friend after being married and having two kids?

Jared and I decided that we would be master thieves if we were such people. Looking for a bob stroller or kid's carseat? Just head over to your closest airport and you will find a selection in the oversized luggage area. Just wheel one out FOR FREE. No security personnel is there to stop such a thing from happening.

I'm on day 4 of Jillian Michaels' 30 day shred. Just thought I'd let you know...

Since the beginning of the year, we decided to only eat sweets on the weekends. I think we've started every year off like this but then by February I'm like "oh, it's valentine's day so we should eat dessert all week in celebration of love!" and then I decide every day should be a celebration of love and we always eat dessert. So I'm determined to maybe make it to St. Patricks Day this year and then break my resolution and hope I stay skinny with the luck of the Irish! Anyway, this week fast from sugar means on the weekends we go big. I thought it would be fun to try out a new dessert from pinterest every weekend and then blog my "review." But it just so happens that as I was walking the aisles of wal-mart I spied Marie Callender's frozen razzleberry pie which was a) cheaper b) easier and c) sounding most delicious. Maybe sometime I will have the energy to try out these pins I lust after.

 I just ordered this print and I'm stoked about it.

And here's a thing. Like, a really big thing that just made my heart skip a mile a minute in anticipation after I watched this. Is JT making a comeback!?!? Holy shnikies! Bam, that would be awwwwesssommmme!

Wishing you the happiest friday!

*linking up with Lindsay today.


  1. gosh i love following your life through instagram!!

  2. I was on the phone with my sister the other day and she said that her husband makes fun of her for talking about her best friend (and she's 35), but she says it's just because he's jealous. So, we think you should. :)

  3. Those Ork posters are so cute! I love the one of the heart!

  4. Justin is making music this year AND so is Destiny's Child! my inner preteen is screaming and jumping up and down!

  5. Ah yes, the thirty day shred been there done that. And, it is awesome! Keep it up, don't stop. It works, it's a great routine. Justin, Justin, Justin...she plays a lot of his music in my step class. He's great. How old are you again? You must be like 22? :)

    I have a best friend. And that doesn't include just my husband. Have a great weekend.

    I love your print, by the way. You are a Southern California girl for sure. I am born and raised there, but I must say I love Northern California so much better. Although, if I lived in Santa Monica-I might not feel the same... :)

    Love to you,

    Shauna xoxoxo

  6. I have started 30 day shred 3 times and have never gotten past day one because of the pain! I am so impressed! Maybe it will help me to be inspired as I begin again next week to 'hopefully' work out everyday ... before work no less! Eek! Good luck to you!


  7. okay so I at first thought you said JTT was back-- I was like WHAAAAAAAA????

  8. I wish I had the dedication to even think of only eating sweets on weekends! I like baking too much...it's a downfall haha. And fingers crossed that JT does make a comeback!


  9. okay for anyone reading this after I post it who hasn't seen you since you had your son....yes you are just as skinny in real life as you are in your pictures!!! Girl I wouldn't have believed you had another baby if I didn't see you in real life :-) Im the one who should be doing Jillian Michaels and staying off the sweets ;-) Actually I may just join you. I need to get skinny before our beach trip in may.

    Enjoy your weekend!

  13. i love that print! i have it as well but its still rolled up with the other map i bought and has yet to make an appearance on our wall anywhere. whoops!

  14. Oh yes!!!! JT is coming back. SO excited for this.

    I don't know if I could ONLY eat sweets on the weekend...but that's a goal that I should definitely have.

  15. Kendra your inspiring me. 1. I just finished two chocolate chip cookies for no good reason except I saw them. Oh and I warmed them up, again for no good reason. 2. I have time at night now a days to workout...I should!
    I love your posts!

  16. Love your blog! :) I started doing Jillian's DVDs (including 30 Day Shred) 8 weeks after I had my daughter (she's almost 5 months now) and I love them!! Man, do they kick your butt the first few days, but they are totally worth it! I credit Jillian for helping me lose a lot of the baby weight. :) Good luck with them!

  17. Cute pics!!! Love Jillian Michaels I need to start right now! :) Following you now, love your blog!!
