Well… I gave a speech this morning and let’s just say that it didn’t go so well.

Apparently, those rules don’t apply to giving speeches.

My powerpoint slides got all messed up and then I got nervous and started to ramble on and on about stuff that no one on this earth could possibly care about, as usual. It’s what I do best.

Waffles For Breakfast and Fridays Circuit Workout

Guess what I got for Valentines Day? Besides a ton of candy that I gladly accepted..

A WAFFLE MAKER.

Movie Night and A New Addiction

Last night Andy and I had a date night and went to see the movie Identity Thief.

We both loved it. Personally, I think Melissa McCarthy would be funny in anything that she made, and this movie only further proved that point for me.

I also felt like she was speaking straight to all of you super speedy runners out there when she said:
