Fresh mani Monday πŸ’…πŸΌ

Sooooooo Monday’s come quick don’t they?! We had Anniversary weekend so there was a mushy love fest for the past 3 days. πŸ’œπŸ˜πŸ’‹ We have been together for 7 of the best years!! I’m so lucky!! Look at our surf and turf, My Love is the Chef!!

Now back to business!! ”Tis Monday, ”tis Mani day! So in honor of my Bestie’s Anniversary this week, I’m channeling my bridesmaid’s dress! It was a perfectly feminine beautiful bubble gum pink. That’s what Shock Wave Miracle Gel is by Sally Hansen. I’m just loving these polishes! πŸ˜πŸ’œπŸ’…πŸΌI’m feeling like a 3rd coat would’ve been ideal but 2 works. I’m keeping my nails SUPER short while I grow out the acrylic damage. 


It’s driving me bananas to have such short nails but they’re super thin, damnit. Patience is a virtue blah blah blah πŸ˜‰

Anyhow see you Wednesday for Wellness Wednesday!!

Boston in TMinus 3 days!!! Be warned!! I’m coming for you!!!?🀣 I had this post all done and froze my WordPress app trying to fix my Facebook link, son of a…..g’night peeps!! 

Wellness Wednesday, well Thursday πŸ˜

So it WAS Wednesday and I want to talk about spring!! The days are longer, the temperatures are creeping up….the sun feels warmer and more lovely….I’m a sucker for spring fever!!! Baseball starts, all good stuff!! It leads me to want to be out. Any chance I get I want to have the sun on me. It also makes us want to start a garden, well it does for me. I’m still reading my garden book. 😁 It’s helping me to not trip over myself with the when where and how. Lord knows I make myself dizzy once I get something in my head. I still need to get me some purple garden gloves!! 😁😁😁 Anyhow I want to be out, we are out on the deck again with the tiki torches. We’re grilling….now we’ll need to prep more. It’s way too easy to just grab stuff that goes together: pasta salad, brats, hot dogs and potato salad is my ultimate weakness!! Lightened up stuff is the way to go for us. I’m down 23 pounds with Weight Watchers and I’m not done! I need to be super focused!! No distractions, well not until Boston! I am looking forward to the visit and the food! There’s nothing like Boston’s pizza, seafood and Italian food!! I’m gonna have to fit in some exercise for it all!!πŸ˜πŸ˜‚ 2 weeks from today!! 

Oh P.S. I’m still super sore from Monday’s Crossfit debacle πŸ‹πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ˜²

Have a great week peeps!! πŸ‹πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸŒ±β­οΈπŸ˜πŸ’œ

Stupid cold ☹️

So I’m so very happy that it’s Tuesday. I’m sick and I have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING that I have to do today. And I intend to do just that. I’m pooped. I’ve been working a lot of days but shorter shifts. It’s a lot more time getting ready and a lot more driving time. I’m trying to be nice and accommodating but I’m tired…and now sick. It’s gonna be a long month!! 

I’m looking into my garden already!! I have spring fever like no other!! β˜€οΈβ˜€οΈβ˜€οΈβ˜€οΈI’m reading a book for beginners and their first year of gardening. Also I have a set of PURPLE gardening tools, ergonomically correct of course! 😜 I know what I want to plant and where, oh I’m just so excited!! I think a garden will do me good! My Love is just letting me run with it for  now. πŸŒ»πŸŒ·πŸƒπŸŒ±πŸ₯’πŸ†πŸŒΆπŸ…


I am getting back on track I hope with blogging. πŸ’œπŸ–‹πŸ““ Consistency is a struggle of mine. I’ll just have to work at it!! I try to do too much then I crap out and get mad at myself. Silly isn’t it?! Anyhow I’m 2 weeks in a row! It’s a streak!! 

A little couponing, some reading, resting and some snuggle time with My Love and my pup. A day off well spent. 

My word of the year: Humble πŸ˜

Good evening peeps!! 

Happy Monday!

So My Love is traveling on business so it’s just me and my lil lady Bailey. Admittedly it’s pretty lame around here without him. ☹️ Also I shall admit that Thursday at 11PM can NOT get here fast enough!! 😊 

It’s early 2017 and I’m kicking so much butt!! I’m learning a lot of stuff simultaneously so that is how I’ve come to pick my word of the year: Humble. Between work and Crossfit, I’m overcoming being crappy at stuff….I’m taking critiques and learning from them. Am I getting mad? Hell no I’m thankful for the time and the looking out!! I’m getting better by the day. My confidence is mounting, I’m eating frogs on the regular!! 🐸 🐸 🐸

I’m being a coupon queen again now!! It feels so good to save money!!! πŸ’° We eat really clean and it’s always been said that you can’t eat clean on a smaller budget. I’ve been saving a bunch already this year!! My goal was to save $100 this month, and I’m already at about $200 saved and we are only half way through the month!!


Good thing I’m saving all kinds of money, I just picked up 2 of my prescriptions for a 30 day supply and it was $173.00! GODDAMN!!! 😑🀒😡 My “Miracle Medication” is $155.00 this month. It goes up to $170 sometimes. My insurance saves me like $900 on it too. What a ripoff!! Good thing I’m rich!! 😁 It’s pretty expensive to get me “normal-ish” πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Botox, medications…..shiiiiiiitt!! Normal…..NO THANKS!! πŸ˜†


Gotta go, that’s my dinner!! 

Have a great week peeps!! Love, Chrissi and Bailey 🐢🐾❀️

Friday Funday and Game Day Saturday….

So I’ve come to the conclusion that it, in fact, is NOT summer that I love…..it’s fall ☺️☺️☺️☺️ That being said I’m SO DAMN HAPPY!!!!!  I absolutely HATE HUMIDITY!!!!!! I LOVED Colorado for all 6 years I was there because there was none of that nonsense there!! Back to the positive: it’s just about gone! Now it’s my chance to enjoy Michigan! Come on Bailey we’re walkin!!!  I want to just keep the ball rolling. I’m down 10 pounds and would like to do some of this Couch to 5K outside in real life. πŸ˜‰ I have big goals for September!! I think I’m the only dork that makes them….

I’m still on the job hunt but it’s not as bad there as it was. I enjoyed my monthly free massage the other day. πŸ˜‰ That being said I genuinely feel like a mother hen with my direct coworkers. Yikes!! πŸ™„

I’m thinking I wanna start a weekly WW Wednesday with a weekly recipe that we tried and loved….what do you think? πŸ˜„

So I’m sitting on our deck with My Love, enjoying our Saturday off with Miss Bailey. Some good food, good football…GO BLUE!! Great music, no sweaty mess!!! YESSSS!!

The sun is going down a bit earlier but I’m not mad yet, yet…..

I’m doing a Daily Journal Challenge this month and it’s making me look within to be a better me. ☺️ Everyone needs to be aware of themselves. People are present but very absent. It’s sad but it’s just how it is now. Damn phones!!!  That being said… I’m putting my phone down to be with My Love!!! 😍😍😍😍

Goodnight y’all!!! πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œp

How is it 9:30 already?!

Happy Monday night! Looks like we made it through another Monday! 😊😊😊😊😊

I’m at a total loss at where my day went. I did accomplish a lot though. Fingers and toes done and a good long massage to make my damn headache go away. I now have my neck back, I’m a little taller and my heads better. ☺️

I’m much better heading into this week as opposed to the past few weeks, AMEN!! ☺️ Coming up tomorrow: day 1 of my free gym pass. Pilates 😧 yikes!!! Also I’ll have to go to that lovely place of employment, oh joy. πŸ˜‰ 

The bipolar roller coaster seems to be on an upslope!!  I got to FaceTime with the gorgeous lil ladies that call me Aunnie β˜ΊοΈπŸ’œβ˜ΊοΈπŸ’œ I just love them. Yes I was under the table with Brenna. ☺️

Okay peeps, go to bed, I’ll be back tomorrow. Goodnight!!!
