Wow. And I Thought I Was Crazy.

Confession:  I'm obsessed with documentaries and I'm not apologizing for it.  I'm a dork and totally okay it......

Now I know I'm a little bit crazy.  I realize not every thought that pops in my head is a sane one.  

Then I watched a clip from the documentary
 Married To The Eiffel Tower.  Once I checked it out on line (here) it made me realize I'm WAY more sane than originally thought.

Have you every heard of object sexuality?  Well it's when people are in love with objects and not people.  One woman claimed to be married to the Eiffel Tower.  If you're ever having a bad day or think you're "strange" or "weird" or "crazy" check out this documentary and realize you are NOT.......

This woman claims she is married to the Eiffel Tower. The woman after her is having an affair with the Golden Gate Bridge.

This girl has an exclusive relationship with a wall in Berlin.  

Now you must excuse me while I go on a romantic date with my washing machine....

I'm Just Not That Into You.....

Dear Candy Sitting In My House-

Halloween is over.  I haven't called, texted or tweeted you since then.  I'm just not that into you. Please stop making google eyes at me and screaming my name and trying to tempt me to be with you.  It isn't happening.  I'm not falling for it.  Please go away.  

How long is it going to take to get rid of you?

New Music Suggestions and My Drew Barrymore Attempt

Thank you to everyone who entered the 
Musical Madness Giveaway a few weeks ago.  
I received SO many INCREDIBLE music choices!

A few of my favorites so far are:

We Found Love by Rihanna (feat Calvin Harris) suggested by Katy @ Fit In Heels

Eye of the Tiger by Survivor 
This is a GREAT spinning warm up song!
suggested by 

A Kiss by Bad Meets Evil
suggested by oatsnbows

Heads Will Roll by Yeah Yeah Yeahs
suggested by Laura at

Bad Influence by Pink
suggested by footbeats

Ok, here are 3 songs (including routine) that you can add to your run.

You Make The Rain Fall by Kevin Rudolf & Flo Rider
Routine:  Steady run adding a sprint during the loop of the song.  The sprint is about 30 seconds.

Sing for the Moment by Eminem
Routine: On a treadmill start at incline 1.0 and add 0.5 every 30 seconds.  When it gets to the chorus of the song pick up your speed.

Dancing on My Own by Robyn
Routine:  Sprint for 45 seconds and walk for 15.  Repeat.

I got motivated by the make-up Drew Barrymore is wearing in the Cover Girl ad......

I made my best attempt to copy the look...

I tried to copy Drew's facial expression in this picture but I ended up looking like a ding a ling.  So I just smiled which is my natural state.....

Not going to make up work area was a hot mess....

I was rockin some serious tunes and singing in my hairbrush (photos not included thankfully)......

While I LOVE MAC make up it is pretty pricey so I've found the next best thing....H.I.P.  It is reasonably priced, found at Target and lasts ALL DAY LONG.  Love this stuff.  My sister-in-law who always has perfect make up on her face let me know about this inexpensive replacement to MAC.

After I cleaned up I put all my make-up back in its home.....

Then I threw on this outfit and headed out to run some errands......

I asked Squiggy & Lenny what they thought.....

They clearly didn't appreciate being woken from their nap.

From Fantastic to Freezing?

I went from FANTASTIC last weekend:

To FREEZING this weekend:

Is mother nature upset with me?

Thankfully last weekend I took advantage of the 65 degree sunny and crisp Fall weather at Bluemont Winery

I live in wine country so lots of my free time is spent outside sipping local wine and cheese.  

Me & my two girlfriends went out for the day.

We had quite the spread...

And quite the view (not sure if we admired the greenery or cheese spread more)...

This pretty much NEVER gets old to me.....


I finally got to whip out my favorite denim jacket. The jacket doesn't have a ruffle it's just the dress I'm wearing underneath....the ruffle would just be odd. 

Do you have something you LOVE to do in your neck of the woods on perfect weather days?

What about on snow days?  Do you go play in the snow or lay on the couch like me?

Milk Maid or Smurf?

I can't decide if this outfit makes me look more like a Smurf or a milk maid.....either way I like it.  Got this dress for $3.  Can't beat that.  I probably would have changed the shoes to heels too.  

Again, I am addicted to stripes. 

My Workout For Today:
5 Minute warm up jog/walk
5 minute run
1 minute sprint
1 minute walk

Repeat 5 times

5 Minute cool down walk

I'm getting on a plane to Boston for work so had to squeeze in a quick run. 

I also added the below song to my playlist.  It's an older song that I LOVE to work out to....I had just forgotten about it.

Count Chocula & Chocolate Colored Dress

Is this even real?  The only thing scary about this cereal is the ingredients!  Do people really eat this stuff?  Maybe I'm missing out....

Why would anyone want to by cereal with characters on the cover that only have one tooth?  I'm so confused.

Everyone has their vice I suppose.  I really can't judge because mine is circus peanuts.  I'm not proud of this but it is what it is......

What I do like is this brown dress I got for $2 in San Luis Obispo, California at a thrift shop.  I'm on the search for a thick yellow belt to go with this dress.  If you find a cool one LET ME KNOW.

I got these earrings for $1 at Pier 1.  How random?  Who even knew they sold earrings?  I love their home decor and am glad to see they've jumped into accessories...

The belt is another find at Savers in Las Vegas for $1. I got this with Shana from ColorBlind.

I added my nude fish nets too keep my legs warm....

I'm a HUGE fan of mixing patterns that are subtle. 

I'd say 80% of my wardrobe is polka dots and stripes.

Cheers to only 2 more work days!!

Boo! I Heart Halloween.

I had a brilliant idea while I was thirft shopping.....

No, it was not to wear two belts at once....

Or to attempt to look like a Senator.....

Actually it wasn't even my idea.  Not gonna lie.  

My brilliant friend Dana planned night out at a haunted forest!  HOLY COW it was SOOO good.  What is scarier than going on a 25 minute haunted forest trek in the middle of the night?  Nothing.....WELL maybe this picture of my sister and I wearing matching PJ's in our 30's....But let's not discuss that.


Dana (the one with the BRILLIANT idea) is the superstar actress on your far left.  Cheryl (hot blond) was making friends with the freaky mask guy who was keeping the people in line entertained.  Really it was Cheryl doing the entertaining....

Dana's faces were cracking us up!  She really knows how to do the scary faces.

Then I attempted a scary face and just looked like I had to pee.

Dana & Cheryl called me out on my inability to make the appropriate faces for "looking scared."

Clearly acting is not my calling.  But then it got even worse.  What face am I making in this next photo?  I guess it's just my face.....


Are you on team Scare the Piss Out Of Me or Hide Me Under the Covers until November 1st?
