We made it through another week! I am so proud of us! No accidents from too much car dancing, everybody made sure no one was hiding underneath their car or in the back seat and we all remembered to bring flip flops for after our workouts right?
Let’s get right into it! My favorites and things “trending” if you will right now with me.
I seriously cannot get enough of Jason Derulo between his sweet dance moves and catchy hooks…I guarantee you this song is going to be ruined in about one month when it starts getting played on repeat. It has such a sick beat and I’m not going to lie I like when he says “your booty don’t need explaining”….I mean those words will never be uttered to me but a girl can only dream right? I already explained in my confessions about the video rap girl dream. Have y’all heard this one yet? It’s definitely going to get your weekend started for sure! (warning not the clean version) <–look at that play on words pretty good eh?
Continuing on with all this booty talk….this workout is killer. I swear Karena is a tiny little person made of steel. Have you checked their website out? They have so many free workouts and printable exercises like this one. I print this out and roll out my yoga mat in my living room. Wish I could just pop over to the beach like those two gals. Do you watch their show on Bravo? Their “board meetings” are sitting on surf boards on the beach discussing business…the life right?
Okay in all fairness I did not make this during the week. However it is in my repertoire of recipes. Do you want to know how easy it is? My sisters husband and I were talking and he goes “Christina (that’s my sister) told me I have a 1lb of ground turkey in the refrigerator and I have to come up with a dinner idea by the time she gets back from her Barre class”. So my instructions went as the following. “Do you have sesame oil? Yes okay start with that and put some shallots and garlic in….ok red onions that will work. When that softens down add the ground beef and brown it. Add some brown sugar and soy sauce or whatever Asian blend sauces you have. Depending on how hot you want it add red pepper flakes at the end. Good then put it over rice (brown preferably) sprinkle with green onions and shredded lettuce. Voila Korean rice bowl”. How did I get this amazing recipe you ask? You guessed it Pinterest. Here is the original version of this above mentioned instructions. I would recommend just a light dusting of the brown sugar….1/4 of a cup made it so sweet on my initial try of this recipe.
Favorite Moment of the Week
It could have easily been my least favorite moment of the week. Remember this post here about my newly purchased MacBook that was sent and didn’t work? Well I am a Mac loyal and I always buy mine refurbished from the apple website. They come with the exact same warranty and you can get really good deals! Especially after the holidays is the best time to stalk the website for all those Christmas returns. For example the original MacBook I had ordered had the retina display screen and it was $350 off the original price. However when I brought it into the store to show the guy they shipped out a computer with a track pad that was not working he looked at me and saw my history of buying from Apple and he said “give me a minute”. Next thing I know he walking out with the newest model MacBook pro and goes “it’s your lucky day”.
Once again restored my faith in the concept of customer service and Apple products. Random funny while I was there waiting for my appointment at the “genius bar” I was eavesdropping on the employee talking with ladies who were probably my mothers age and looked quite conservative. I hear the girl say how Jenna Jameson was her idol…..
The one woman looks at me and goes “who is she”….I calmly replied “ummm an adult entertainer”. She still looked confused and her friend who was furiously typing into her iPhone shoved it in her face and goes “yeah she’s a porn star”. I swear only to me.. Oh and I also had to hold back giggles the woman next to me made an appointment to sync her Samsung galaxy phone with her computer the apple tech was literally like
I apparently got ahead of myself with theses but let’s get rolling.
Realizing that I still have leftover queso from the other night…hello epic snacking.
