Date Night With Myself

Tonight, I gave myself a little special treatment. I've been doing really well with the eating healthy thing. I've lost 8 pounds! But I didn't care about eating healthy at ALL tonight. I needed some pampering and I was HUNGRY!!! To start the night off, I got one of my favorite drinks ever. A steamer with caramel and vanilla from Starbucks. (of course!)  Then, I headed over to Cold Stone and got a Peanut Butter Cup Perfection signature ice cream. After Cold Stone I headed to Cafe Rio to pick up a pork barbacoa salad. After I had all the fatty goodness, I headed home. When I got there, I got in my pajamas, turned on Netflix, and just relaxed. It was so nice to not worry about anything and enjoy myself. Sure, I probably ate more calories in one sitting than I do in an entire day, but I don't care! I had a nice night! Like my mother says, it just means I enjoy my own company. I think tonight was definitely a good way to start out the week. Here's to making the rest of it just as good!

I can already tell you that working this off at CrossFit is going to suck.
Oh well!

My Bucket List... So Far.

1. Go to a Celtics basketball game IN Boston vs. the Jazz
2. Date a black man
3. Live out of Utah
4. Go to a live taping of the Maury Show
5. Get on tv or my own tv show
6. Go to Australia
7. Own a standard size poodle
8. Be a nanny in Boston
9. Skydive or base jump (both if I liked one of them)
10. Go hillbilly hand fishing a.k.a. noodling
and last but not least, number 11 on my list is go to a Star Trek convention.

It's a pretty dumb list, but hey, I want the memories of my life to be unique!

Biebs In The Coat Closet

I cannot express to you how much I love my job at the high school! I'm full time now and I've been loving every second of it. I've grown better relationships with the students. They think I'm much cooler than I was before. ;]  I also think my coworkers are definitely a huge part as to why I love it so much, though. We're always laughing and joking. We get along great! Some examples of the fun things we do together (when the kids aren't around) are things like playing Just Dance 2 and 3 on the Wii, or hanging pictures of Justin Bieber in our coat closet so we have something beautiful to look at everyday, or just talking and having a good time! I seriously love them. They're the greatest!

Ruthie loves the Biebs!

In case you haven't heard the news yet...
How awesome is that?! My cousin Morgan and I decided earlier this month that we need to get away. We're going to the island Kauai on April 6th to the 16th. My birthday is the 8th! It's going to be a great birthday! We've already booked our flight and hotel. All we're doing now is counting down the days! Something kind of crazy though, the day after we booked our trip, I got this as a fortune...

How crazy is that?! I almost choked when I saw it! It was a true fortune! I loved it so much I saved it!

I do have some goals to reach before I go to Hawaii though. Like getting a smokin' hot body so I can look awesome on the beach. ;] Haha no, it's mostly just a change in lifestyle. I'm still doing CrossFit, and taking up the hobby of rock climbing. (so much fun!) I've been eating healthier too. As hard as it is now, it'll be good for me in the long run. I made a little bit of inspiration for myself that I have to look at everyday.

All in all, I think this year has so far been a pretty great one. I sure hope it's going to stay like this!

I do not know why, but the other day I was thinking about all the crushes I had while I was in school. I'm talkin' K - 12. I realized that I remembered every single kid. I think it's kind of funny so I'm going to share.

Pre-School - Golden (he was the neighborhood stud back in his day.)
Kindergarten - Trent
1st - Brad (the new kid everyone fell in love with.)
2nd & 3rd - Tanner (EVERYONE liked Tanner)
4th & 5th - Daniel
6th - Andrew (he ended up being my first date)
7th - Chase
8th & 9th - Alex (who supposedly reads my blog, but it's not like he didn't know. I was SO obvious about it... Hi, Alex!)
10th & 11th - Colton
12th - Rich (also my first kiss)

Post high school crushes are jumbled. I just found it kinda funny I remembered all of them. I thought it'd be entertaining to share. Can any of you remember all your childhood crushes? It's interesting to think about! You should try it.
