TOMORROW!!! It's my favorite holiday!!! The birth of our fine nation!!!! This is gonna be kinda all over the place, but what's new around here, anyway, right?

So first things first. Update on my Sweet Summertime 7:
Sweet Summertime 7:
A Heart Like Mine
<div align="center"><a href="" title="A Heart Like Mine"><img src="" alt="A Heart Like Mine" style="border:none;" /></a></div>

  1. Run a 5k: I'm still debating whether or not I want to do the color run in August or the Hillbilly Run in October on my birthday weekend.
  2. Get down to 165 lbs : I weighed myself this morning and I was holding strong at 182. No loss but I'm ok with that considering the amount of food and alcohol I put in my body last weekend. I'm also still maintaining 20 pounds lost since January.
  3. Get down to a size 8-10 and Medium : Workin' on it.  
  4. Learn portion control: Well yesterday I failed at this. They had rolled tacos in the cafeteria yesterday and I couldn't stop. They were so yummy!!! But this morning I made breakfast so I WILL restrain myself with the mac and cheese they have down there today. One small serving and that's it!
  5. Do a fitness class every week : Haven't been to the gym.
  6. Feel comfortable in a bikini in a picture without a cover-up : So yesterday I bought a new bikini at Target. The biggest accomplishment is that the bottoms aren't string, they're regular bottoms! I NEVER wear regular bottoms because of my love handles, the string bottoms are nice because I can loosen them and not feel like they're cutting into my hips. I know, stupid. But anyway. It's not perfect, but I'm wearing it tomorrow. We'll see if I get drunk enough to take a picture in it haha.
  7. Go on a hike at least once a month : This is turning out to be harder than I thought. But I have to make time.
This is also linked up with Weigh-in Wednesday!
Pretty Strong Medicine

Now moving onto THE FOURTH OF JULY!! I just wanted to share some of my favorite patriotic pins :)

Never forget those who still fight today for the freedom
granted to us by our ancestors 237 years ago.

I just really love this picture.

And this one.


Nope, sure won't!
I hope everyone has a fantastic day tomorrow (or 4 day weekend, in which case you better be extra patriotic because I don't get that!), and at least takes a few minutes to remember the PURPOSE of the day. Also, I posted yesterday about my friend's little sister getting asked to remove her cross necklace on her college campus. Well, tonight she's going on the O'Reilly Factor to dicuss it. The Washington Post has run the story. It's turning into national news. Please read it and share it. We cannot let things like freedom of religion get taken away from us.

OK everyone. That's it for me! Happy 4th of July, stay safe, and stay patriotic!!!

God Bless America.


  1. Oh yeah, I was going to comment on that yesterday but someone was coming over to my desk so I had to shut it off real fast! I can't believe that! This really presses my buttons because if it were any other religion, a big stink would never have been made. I am a Christian woman and I don't consider myself ignorant or hateful of others. I don't understand why Christians can't do or say something for fear of insulting others. But they can do whatever they want and say whatever they want without regard to insulting us. Ok, I could go on and on and on... VERY FRUSTRATING.

    On the flip side, have a mighty fine holiday. My workplace is open Friday, but I figured out fast that we'd have to come back to work so I scheduled off a while ago so I could have a long weekend. I'm definitely going to enjoy it!

  2. I'm glad you keep checking in on your goals! I tend to lose sight of mine because I don't come back to them after I make them! It's so hard especially with all the fun summer brings!

    Seriously with the cross? That is just disgraceful. Hasn't anyone ever heard of the Bill of Rights? I can't wait to read the story!
