Allegedly It's Spring


I confess...

...I haven't cooked dinner once this week...and I have no intentions of changing that.  

...I make up the most ridiculous stories when I meet strangers out. The trick is to say things with conviction and make sure they are somewhat believable and then no one questions you.... Cab drivers and really shy boys are my favorite to mess with. 

...Speaking of...I make sure to go to the youngest, most awkward male cashier whenever I am buying tampons. 

...I always have sunglasses on and my headphones when I am going to work for the sole purpose of avoiding people. 
...I got caught in a SNOWSTORM last night on my way home. 
Seriously though. I'm so sick of winter, it shouldn't be snowing in APRIL
...I overuse the ellipsis...

...I haven't been to the gym since Saturday and I feel disgusting. I think I have turned into a full-on gym rat. I'm not entirely sure how to feel about this.

...I am so annoyed by everything Coachella. Nothing about it sounds like a good time to me and I would rather stick pins in my eyes than spend a weekend in the desert. 

...I am way more excited about Girl Meets World than I should be.

Life Lately: April

Listening: A lot of Springsteen. I need summer! 
Eating: I cannot get enough oranges lately.

Drinking: Iced Nonfat Green Tea Latte! Treat yo self.
Ice Green Tea Latte from Starbucks-   I make this at home as well using matcha, vanilla almond milk and a shot of vanilla syrup.  yum.

Reading: Ugh, I am the worst. I have a pile of about 15 books on my night stand and I always reach for my iPad first.

Feeling: Tired. I need a day to just do nothing.

Weather: Just be happy you can't see my hair today.
I have started stashing spare hair ties in my classroom at school to combat my post-recess-duty hair.
Wanting: New kicks! 
Specifically these
Watching: Friday Night Lights! Netflix, you complete me! You too, Tim Riggins. 
How do I begin to explain Tim Riggins? (mean girls / friday night lights)

Another Sad Excuse for a Weekend Update

See this...subtract the random text and add a 6'5" Texan and a ridiculous 3 block limo ride.

Also, this happened....
And then this...
And Sunday wasn't nearly as tragic as last weekend, so I ran a few errands with my mom and took advantage of the weather by playing some tennis. 
Hint, I was Carol 
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend too! Here's to a fast week!

Week 2!

Adventures of Manda and Mr Howie
Another Thursday, another update! This week, I added another 25.6 miles, making my total for April 32.13. The weather has been making it so much easier to get moving! On Sunday, my four miles was a hike with my mother. I was a little hungover under the weather, so getting outside was just what I needed! 
How are you going so far?
Fit Personality - In case you guys need as much motivation as I do!!!

Linking up with Kat today! I confess...

...I had a really personal post scheduled for yesterday and got so nervous about it that I woke up in the middle of the night and deleted it completely. I had written it a year ago and finally got the balls to hit publish, but apparently, i'm not as brave as I think. 

...I went to Shop Rite after the gym last night and bought a pint of chocolate ice cream. I won't confess how much I ate...but I did add peanut butter to it. 

...I was rooting for Kentucky on Monday night. I was in a bar full of UConn fans who were harassing me. The only person on my side was a 75 year old man. You gotta take your friends where you can find 'em! 

...My mother still does my laundry for me. Like way more often than she should. 
...My clients have been driving me crazy lately. My coworkers have caught me cursing them off way to many times. 

...Finally got around to filing my taxes this weekend. I'm getting a pretty decent return, but it's already been spent. Whoops. 

...I love baseball, but I can't get myself to care about it yet. In my head, it's still football season. 
Opening day of baseball means only 120 more games until we need to start caring about baseball.
