It's Monday And Here's A Pick-Me-Up

I'd like to propose a toast {with orange juice...}
to everyone, for even being alive and kicking
on this Monday morning... in the middle of June.

{Lol, except I'm still sleeping right now probably...
scheduled post right here, ha suckers.}

I was browsing Pinterest, trying to find a pretty locale
to mentally whisk you guys away to.
But then I stumbled across this, and thought it was even better for a Monday morning:

source unknown

A few gems from last week/end to serve as pick-me-ups also,
because just remember... you have not reached (sunk to) my level yet:

+ I watched (watched, not did) a few blogilates | POP Pilates videos,
and my body was already aching in pain ... and tears were welling.

+ After thinking that Instagram video just didn't come with sound,
and that the concept was kind of stupid, because... hello, I can't hear you,
I realized that to hear anything, you have to have your sound on...
as in, not just your music volume,
but your actual ringer (the switch on the side of your phone)...
so now I actually really like the concept because I can hear you describing your breakfast
(sadly, I'm not being sarcastic right now.)

+ The only possible way I got through 20 minutes on the treadmill this weekend,
was because I begged my dad to turn on the Food Channel...
and so my legs were dying, but it was fine because
my eyes were feasting on the cheesy sandwiches on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives
and my taste buds were ghost-feasting on them as well,
and I was in my happy state.

+ Sometimes the only effective alarm clock in the morning,
is me being too hungry,
and then I wake up for food.


Worst case scenario,
your name is not North West.
Not everyone can say that now.
{And if your name is North West, you come into the world as a gazillionaire,
so frankly, that should help your case just a smidge.}

Still feeling the Monday blues?
Go ahead.
Pretend you're here:


and take me with you!

{This post was riveting. I am aware.}

  4. dude i'm OBSESSED w/ triple D love that show!!! when we were still in the bay area.. the hubs and i tried to visit as many triple D places that we could!!

    haha you're so funny it's actually 90 degrees here in washington DC! and it's HUMID too so it's even worse then houston.. (i lived in san antonio 2 summers ago.. so i'm familiar with the dry texas heat) i can't wear the blazer outside.. but i tend to find that whenever the weather's hot the AC inside restaurants/malls ect are ON FULL blast.. and i always need to bring a jacket of some sort :p i use to DIE when i went to the movies in san antonio.. i'd be so hot outside.. and it felt like i was sitting in a ice chest half way through the movie!!

  5. So glad my name isn't North West! :-0

    Love that clip you found on Pinterest. I've seen it before and love reading it!

  6. It's weird how differently I feel about the days of the week when they carry almost no relevance in my life. Anyway, this post cracked me up. Have a great Monday!

  7. I love the "I'm thankful for..." pinterest image! It makes me take a different perspective on when I was complaining earlier about having to go to the grocery for my mom to buy stuff for lunch...

  8. Love that first photo. I need to remember to feel that way more often.
