5 Question Friday/Fur Baby Friday!

Today I am trying something new and doing a double link up! So I hope this doesn't feel too cluttered.

First off, I'm linking up with the fabulous Mrs. Monologues for the VERY FIRST Fur Baby Friday! I absolutely love this idea and of course, I love to show off my pretty girls.
My precious Tilly  has a new favorite toy this week. A random ping pong ball that she found in our garage. She's been playing with this ball like crazy and she loves to pounce on it when it goes bouncing across our hardwood floors.

Per usual on Fridays, next up is 5 Question Friday! Hosted by Mama M.

1. What have you done recently that you are proud of?
I've managed to lose about 6-7lbs. in the past 2 1/2 weeks! This gets me closer to my ideal weight goal! I'm not sure how in the world I've managed to accomplish this because I've been a major slacker in the workout department. I'm giving all the credit here to my diet. My original "2012 goal" was to lose about 10 more pounds, but now that I'm down 6.5, I feel like maybe I should have aimed for 15 total lbs. Maybe I'm becoming obsessed? It's so easy to get obsessed with losing weight!
Now I need to get back in the gym hardcore because summer is just around the corner!

2. What is your favorite way to work out? Or if you don't workout, what are you wanting to try?
I love Zumba, it's so fun and one of the best cardio workouts I've done. Other than that, I like running outside when the weather allows. I did a bootcamp at my gym last summer that was AMAZING, and it totally kicked my ass.
I like trying new things all the time. I'm not a run on the treadmill for hours kind of girl.

3. If you knew you best friend was cheating on spouse would you tell?
I want to say no. Skye always tells me to mind my own business when it comes to peoples relationships because I'm always curious about what's going on. I want to think I would be able to mind my own business, especially if the cheat-er was my best friend. Maybe I would just offer advice to her? Never been in this situation so I can't say for sure.

4. If you could afford a live-in maid or nanny, would you have one?
HELL YES! I would have a live-in maid, no need for a nanny around here.

5. Do you stress out about birthdays (specifically the age) or do you enjoy them?
Both. My last birthday was probably the first (of many) that I will be a little shy about telling people how old I am. As I get closer to 30, I'm sure it will only get worse. But in the end, my birthday is my favorite holiday so you have to enjoy it!

Bonus: Lights off or on?
Depends...It doesn't bother me with lights on, but sometimes it's not the right mood.
So come on over and link up with me in both places! It's fun!
PS - I got my hair done tonight...and I got a little advice on how to fix my alfalfa hair. Plus, I got a wild hair and added a little red this go around. I've had my hair exactly like this before, with the blonde, red and low lights, but it's been years. Kinda hard to tell in this picture, but gives you an idea.

6 1/2 pounds? Awesome girl! I like your new highlights. Since my little guy had an impromptu doctor visit I had to cancel my hair appointment. My roots are crying!

Vanessa said...

Holly said...

Awww Tilly is so sweet! What a cute name too :)

Deanna @ Little Green Bow said...

Wow! Congrats on the weight loss. I love Zumba too! It's such a fun workout that doesn't feel like it.

Congrats on the lbs! I would love to have a maid - although we have a cleaning lady every other week and it ends up being perfect. I work full time and my kids are in school so every moment I'm not working and they are not in school, it's really important I spend with them, so no nanny needed. :)

LOVE the hair! So cool.
