Weekend Update

Hey ya'll!
First of all welcome to all my new followers! I am so happy that ya'll are here!

I have a give-away coming sometime this week... The wonderful people from Firmoo emailed little ole me and wanted to send me a pair of glasses in exchange for a review (good or bad depending on what I thought of the glasses) and after the review they are going to send one of my lucky readers a free pair of prescription or non-prescription glasses or sunglasses. 
For the review and give away I'm going to do my first ever Vlog (video blog) so look for that some time this week! 

I was going to do it today but let's be honest I don't feel like putting on make-up! hahaha.
Until then you can go check out their website and see which ones you will pick when you win! :)

Here is me in mine: 

I got them on Thursday and the only place I've been is to the gym... So this picture is of me heading to the gym! 

Here is a little story about me. I have always wanted to be a cool kid but I am entirely too nerdy. I have always wanted glasses but I have incredible vision. So when I was in third grade I wanted glasses so bad that I lied during my eye exam and got some glasses! Yup, I'm a big nerd. So, after I got my glasses (they were purple) they hurt my eyes and head so bad that I stopped wearing them. Sure you can make fun of me. I make fun of myself. ANYWAY. When Firmoo emailed me I knew I would get some "hipster" glasses and just pretend. Third grade me didn't know that they made glasses with non-prescription lenses. If only she could see me now. 
Ya'll are the only people I'm telling that these aren't real glasses. So don't tell anyone. 

Weekend Recap:

Friday morning I went to Body Pump with Aimee... I love, love, love body pump. If your gym offers it then get your butt in there. It's a weight class that also gets your heart pumping and you burn a ton of calories! I've been going for 2 weeks now and I can already see my arms and legs have more definition in my arms! I've never been able to see my shoulder muscles before but now I can when I'm working out! Woo! 
Then Friday night we just had a relaxing night at home and I made homemade stir fry with a ton of veggies. Hazel LOVED it. 
Saturday we had to get up early to bring Hazel to my mom's to spend the weekend with her then we headed to Body Pump again. This time it was Jonathan, Aimee, and I. After that Jonathan and I went home and totally just relaxed and vegged out. We rarely have no plans whenever Hazel is gone so we enjoyed just being bums and watching TV. Then we both got in a cleaning kick and cleaned the whole house. It is so rare that I get to clean while Hazel isn't there. It's incredible how much faster it is! Then we had pizza for dinner so I was feeling super guilty. 
Then Sunday we slept until 10:30 AM. It was awesome. Then I got a itch to go for a long run! It was like 68 degrees and not too sunny but not too cloudy. It was the perfect weather so I headed out and went to The Greenway to run! It's my favorite place. It's a trail through the woods and over a little river. It's beautiful. So I went and ran for 4.5 miles without walking then I walked for half a mile then ran the last mile. All together it was 6 miles. It felt great. I haven't been out running since the beginning of November so it felt great. But my headphones broke half way through so that was torture. I hate hearing myself breathe! It messes with my head. Anyway! I am done rambling.

I'm heading to hot yoga at 9:15 then going with Jonathan to Body Pump at 5:15
