Sleeping in

2 Apr

Ahhhhh hello Good Friday! I got to sleep in until 815 today and feel so relaxed. I absolutely love when I get over eight hours of sleep, I could get used to this! My throat still hurts but not as scratchy as it has been. It still hurts to swallow but I just need to get taking my meds and I will be aight.

I made an egg and cheese sandwich this morning on a Thomas Whole Wheat Bagel Thin. Ummm so the only kind of eggs I can make are scrambled and omelets but somehow made this beautiful triangle of an egg

 Katie from Ten Eight Six Four tagged me in a series of questions and I am going to tag some people as well because I love these things and I love learning random things about peeps:

*Kelly from My Healthy Passion

*Karla from Foodologie

*Terri from Dessert or Diet

*Mari from Namaste Mari

*Kat from Granola + Pancakes

*Piper from The Crazy Apron

And for the questions:

1. Who is your style icon? I don’t model myself off of anyone but if I had to pick someone it would be J-Lo. She can go from hoodies and workout pants to fun, graphic tops to classing it up and I love the range she brings with her style.

2. What is your favorite book? Bitter is The New Black by the fabulous Jennifer Lancaster. She writes about her life and daily stories of living with hubby, dogs, cats and I cry when I read her books from laughing so hard. She has a new book coming out next month and will be hitting different cities on her book tour. If she is in your city, I cannot recommend her enough. I met her once and plan on meeting her again! Check our her blog at

3. Favorite party theme? Ugly Christmas Sweater party I went back to in Phoenix. I love the tackiness of it all!

4. Favorite outdoor activity?  Like Katie, I am going with hiking and biking. I used to bike to the beach all the time when I lived in FL and love checking out new trails here in NC.

5. Something you cannot live without? Laughter. I don’t know how people get through the day without it. If we are talking about tangible items—Burt’s Bees Lip Balm, Starbucks and my blackberry (like Trader Joe’s, I would marry it if I could)

6. Living person you admire? My co-worker April, who I worked with in Phoenix. Her daughter passed away two years ago and had stayed strong throughout and after the ordeal. She still keeps a positive outlook on life, has an amazing sense of humor and is just someone you want to be around.

7. Greatest Fear? Another answer that I am stealing from Katie because as she says, we are the same person lol…….dying young and in a car accident. I think it would really suck just on your way going somewhere then BAM you’re dead. Not cool.

8. Go to favorite meal? Anyone who reads this will know….Nachos!!!

9. Which talent would you most like to have?  This is going to sound silly but I want to be a normal girl who is put together, organized and can walk in heels without complaining. I am like a tornado and mess up everything on a daily basis whether it’s getting dressed and trying on 20 different things then throwing them on the ground and not hanging them up. I am not organized at all and when my phone rings in my purse, I get frantic and can’t find it but can find random ketchup packets and splenda’s in my purse. And heels–I will never be the elegant girl who can walk in heels. Give me my Reefs flippies and I am a happy girl

10. Greatest Achievement? I would say my achievements within the bank. I got my Officer title within the first two years and have won numerous awards within my line of business. When I go to work I don’t play around—I want to be the rockstar and when I am at work, am all business.

I realized I haven’t had any Lincoln love on here in the few days so I give you some Lincoln from this morning

I need to figure out a game plan for the rest of the day–Happy Friday all!!
