Marvelous Mondays – January 9th

9 Jan

Well, it’s Monday again! But that is ok, because I have many things to be quite excited for this week! Following a nasty cold that threatened my sanity last week, this week is going to get started off right.

So why am I so happy? Well, read below and you’ll find out!


Tonight I am going back to my favorite workout class – Survival Bootcamp! I have been going to Survival Bootcamp off and on for almost 4 years, and it is one heck of a workout. I am so ready and anxious to be back at bootcamp after quite a break. (If you creep the website enough, you will see some pretty awesome pics of me working out!)


I am SO excited to be back to running tomorrow morning. Stacy, Diana and I are getting back into our weekly runs! As long as the weather cooperates this winter, we will be running (hopefully) at least twice a week together. I miss the girls, and I need them to get me through the cold winter months!

Get ready to be worked, Brooks Ghost

The Pact

Last night I started reading ‘The Pact’ and I cannot stop thinking about it. I rarely get into a book that fast, but this one is really good..


I love Revenge!! And this week I get to enjoy another awesome episode of this gripping show! Will Emily Thorne get Revenge?!


Although it has been an adjustment this season without Stabler in the picture, Olivia is still there and I really love her. This week, it appears she will have a new love interest in the form of Harry Conick Jr.!

And last but not least…..

The Bachelor

I have been a Bachelor finatic since season 1. I love the show, and I love making fun of everyone on it. Even though I am not Ben’s biggest fan, I will still be there watching as he attempts to find love. I have my Bachelor crew, and we have watched every episode together for years. It makes me happy.


So that is what’s making me happy this week. Now please share what’s making you happy!

Cheers to you and a great week ahead,


P.S. I am thinking about writing a Marvelous Monday post every Monday to start the week off positive…do you think that is a good idea?

    I think positive Monday posts are great!

    For one, after reading this post it totally reminded me of why we are bff’s!! I pretty much want to/will be doing the same things as you, just from about 18 hours and 2 time zones away!

    Positive things I have going on this week:
    Praying for no jury duty! So far one day down.
    Today is officially 5 months until the wedding! Hopefully not to much upcoming stressing.
    I think I’m going to join “The Pit” kickboxing gym and get tough!
    It’s official as of this afternoon…but don’t tell to many of my co-workers yet…I am the newest Accountant I at Community Action Partnership of SLO County!!! I just found out about an hour ago!!!
    And Palm Springs this Saturday!

    Ok, now that’s I’ve made my blog entry via your reply (hehehe), I wish you a Marvalous Monday too!

    Sounds like a lot of fun stuff! I love the bachelor too! I watch it every week with my friend/neighbor and we spend the whole time analyzing/making fun of the people on the show 🙂 Oh and I like the Marvelous Monday posts!!

    I had to stop reading Jodi Picoult’s books because they make me so sad. Also, I become addicted IMMEDIATELY to the story and forget to do other things, like laundry, in favor of finishing the book. Ooops. Enjoy!

    I love the ideas of a little bit of fun & positivity on Mondays.
    I haven’t seen Revenge, but people seem to love it. That reminds me that I need to catch up on Once Upon a Time.
