Lyndy's list of favorite things...

Things that are to me right now - 
  • Loreal Voluminous mascara
  • Avon ultra color rich lipstick in sparkling nude (wear it - you will get compliments)
  • Running & volleyball  
  • Pretzel M&Ms (these may stay on my permanent Things I Love list)
  • These
  • The Band Perry's self-titled CD (every track is good yall.. trust me, they're no one-hit wonder.. and me and Kimberly, we basically sound just alike)
  • I LOVE spring
  • We planted this dogwood in the fall of 2009. It didn't bloom last spring, so I was super pumped that it was so pretty this year. The pink one only had one bloom (poor thing, I'm sure the white one has taunted it since like March), but I hear they're not as hearty as the white ones. Now ya tell me, gee thanks.
    When we built our house, the builder told us a Japanese maple was "a must" for this spot so after thinking it over (and the in-laws springin' for the tree as a housewarming gift) we gave in. Well it was 'spensive and it bit the dust the first year...soooo in the fall of 2009 we planted another one (that came from el-cheapo flea market-o) and lookie how she's blossomed with some TLC...
  • Game night with my bro & fam...
  • Cam was at a birthday campout sleepover.
  • Going shopping with my mom today (can I getta hoo-rahh, looked forward to this all week, yo)

Exercise freak?

Last weekend was the beginning of an exercise freak-tified week for me. I'm trying to help my young friend Bridgett get going on her exercise regimen so we ran all weekend. The temps were perfect-o do you hear me?! Anyway, this is how today went - I had to work of course. On my lunch hour I went to butts & guts class. In this class we did this stuff: crunches, push ups, flies, more crunches (a different kind), skull crushers, overhead raises, tricep dips, bicep curls. 3 sets each circuit. OUCH! Went back to work. After work, went to the park and ran three miles in 29 minutos (numero uno was in 9 minutes y'all), then walked a mile to cool down and enjoy the scenery a bit. Then, I discovered I kinda stunk so I went back to the gym to shower and change clothes before my volleyball game. I'm playing in a co-ed league at work. We have a 100+acre campus that rivals most college campuses, no foolin' and we have a sand volleyball court that's pretty sweet. I played last year and had a blast. Summer temps get hot, but I love some bump.set.spike action. Yeeeah. Our team name is BOOMshakalaka. Oh and I should mention that in tonight's first game, which we won 15-3, I served up like 10 consecutive points and in the second game, which we won 15-2, I served up 12 or 13 in a row. Hope my serve sticks around all season. That will be hot!

So was I an exercise freak today? Maybe. But some people think nuthin of exercisin' more than two hours in a single day. They proly don't have real jobs though, yo.
