My Weekend at a Glance!

Hi Y'all! This weekend was great because I completed my 'to do' list  which NEVER happens.  I finished the laundry (folded AND put away), cleaned almost every inch of my condo, grocery shopped, had dinner & cocktails with friends, and still made Sunday dinner with all of the fixings.



I love this song....................

My Weekend!!!

I spent my weekend in doors painting & crafting for the most part. CJ was out of town so I took advantage of spending the weekend in his man cave. Usually this area is off limits but but when the cat is away the mice will play. I did manage to leave my house for a couple hours a day to workout. Normally I'm a busy body but i just wasn't feeling going out this weekend. How did YOU spend the weekend?

Here is what I've been working on.........

R.I.P Amy

It breaks my heart to hear that Amy Winehouse passed away today.  I know that she was a little cray cray, but she was extremely talented.  Her lyrics were so deep and voice was so soulful.  I don't know about you but I will miss her. 

Here is one of my favorite Amy Winehouse songs:

Snacks, beer, AND Football!

I don't know about you but I'm happy that the NFL lockout is coming to an end. I can't imagine a year without tailgating. It gives me an excuse to drink beer before noon (on a Sunday) and to indulge in extremely unhealthy snacks (buffalo chicken dip, yum). I live across the street from the stadium so the pre-game preparation awakes me at 8:30 a.m. every Sunday morning (home games). I'm excited that we have the #1 pick, Cam Newton!

Downfall: The fans will pay more for tickets, tv and get a watered down product as the training will be behind schedule, but I guess it is what it is(someone has to pay the lawyers).

Loves Her....

Hope Solo is my home girl.....I'm going to make my own Nike commercial starring *drum roll* .........ME!  Haha, just kidding but it would be totally awesome.



Speaking of Hope Solo, I was so pissed that Japan beat the U.S (Women's World Cup).....If it wasn't for those damn penalty kicks we would've of won. 

Why is America so Fat?

This is just in, the U.S. is still fat!!!!  Mississippi ranked #1 with a whopping 34.4%.  I guess it could be worse. Check out this link if you want to read more about the recent obesity epidemic.

I'm Addicted to Nike Commercials

Hi My name is Jin, and I am addicted to watching Nike commercials. I often daydream that I had a body like a female athlete...like Hope Solo or Allyson Felix. I would just walk around naked or in a swim suit.  If you were a professional athlete what sport would you play?




My Weekend At A Glance!


CJ and I took it easy this weekend. Saturday we went to the gym, had lunch at our favorite bar Kennedy's ($1 Pabst Blue Ribbon), then spent a couple hours at the book store (another one of out favorite places to go). Saturday night Cj introduced me to some of his teammates from his new soccer team.
Sunday we slept in and ran errands. I made lasagna and then spent the rest of the night doing laundry and painting.how did you spend this past weekend?

TOMS shoes

On Saturday Nordstrom's had an event where if you purchased a pair of TOMS shoes you could get them personalized for free.  My little sister purchased a gold metallic pair of TOMS and had the heels (of the shoes) personalized with leopard print.

Nike Fall 2011 Collection

If you are looking for new workout apparel, you need to take a look at the Nike 2011 Fall Collection. I love the 80's style midriff tees, but I'm not brave enough to show my tummy at the gym.

Go Shawty It's Your Birthday!


"And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.” ~ Abraham Lincoln

I am 27 years old today which means I have 3 years to buy a house, get married, have kids, and win the lottery...A lot of pressure sheesh!

4th of July Weekend

We spent the holiday weekend in Charleston with some friends from college. I had a blast but one thing's for sure, I am getting old. I can't hang like I used to in college. In my attempt to "keep up" I was poppin' 5-hour Energy's, B-12,and Ginseng left and right.
Overall, I enjoyed taking a trip down memory lane. We have the coolest group of friends and I can't wait until we all meet again!
