Marvelous Mondays – January 30th

30 Jan

Dun Dun Dun….it’s Monday my friends. And it is a new week ahead to look forward to.

Last week was not the happiest week ever, but this week MUST be better. I get very mad at myself when I don’t practice what I preach on staying positive. And last week I certainly did NOT practice my positive preaching.

This week, I WILL be positive. I WILL be happy, and I WILL be thankful. Got that? Ok, good. Now let’s get started and talk about the week ahead.

The Bachelor

Oh The Bachelor. You are the highlight of my week (is that sad?). I cannot wait to see what shennanigins you have in store for us tonight, and how drunk the women will get.

I also cannot wait to see if it is possible for the “model” Courtney to be a bigger B word.

“Oh, I was just there two months ago…”

“I can reach higher than everyone else”

And Courtney, please stop quoting Charlie Sheen by constantly saying “Winning!” Do you realize that by quoting Mr. Sheen in a serious manner, you are not in fact “winning”?

New Phone

I finally got a new iPhone!!! And I’m totally obsessed with her. She is white, and beautiful.

After 3 years, it was time for an upgrade. Welcome home sweetie!

Giveaway

I get to host a giveaway this week on the blog!!

If you follow my tweets, you might have an idea as to what I am giving away. I will tell you this, it is pretty dang fabulous!

I think that wraps up the week ahead. I know it will be a busy one, but that will hopefully mean it flies on by.

What are you looking forward to this week?

Marvelous Mondays – January 16th

16 Jan

Wow, I cannot believe it is Monday again! It feels like I was just sitting here writing my first Marvelous Monday post!

So let’s get to it. There are some pretty exciting things going on this week, and I am mighty excited to share them with you!

The Bachelor

What shenanigans will slut-tastic Blakely and full-of-herself Courtney be up to this week?

How do they not get cold sores or Mono on this show?

"How did that taste coming out of your mouth?"

Last week was pretty great, but I will admit that I was sad to see cry baby Jenna go home. She definitely added some entertainment to the already insane show.

Pinterest Baking Project

Saturday night I made a recipe I found on Pinterest, and it was amazing. I cannot wait to share my S’mores cookies with the Bachelor girl crew tonight!

New Clothes

I went shopping this weekend, and got a few new outfits!

They were having incredible deals this weekend, and the best deal of all were jeans I got from the Gap. I scored three pairs of $21! Yes, $21 total! Oh emmmm geee!

I also got this fun sweater and shirt from Limited!

Like the cameo from the Baby Karly?

Happy Nails

If these nails don’t scream, “I’m happy!”, I don’t know what does!

Arbonne-Mainia

Tonight I will be receiving a “fit kit” from Arbonne.

I have always been a fan of Arbonne skin products, but have not ever tried the diet/health products.

Look out for the review in the next few weeks! And please let me know if you have tried any of these products. I would love to chat about them and get your tips and tricks!

Fashion Friday’s – Budget Edition

I was so pleased by everyone’s positive feedback of Fashion Fridays last week, and I am really looking forward to the review I have planned this week. This week will be a much more budget-friendly review, perfect for our New Year’s money saving resolutions!

DEG Holiday Party

My company Holiday party is this Friday, and it is going to be great one! And P.S., if you are looking for a great place to work, click here and tell them Ali sent you!

Twitter Road Race

My Twitter pal Doug, @seedouglasrun, had a genius idea to hold a virtual Twitter road race! The race is this Saturday and will be a 5K. I am excited to run the virtual race with Stacy and Diana on Saturday!

I would suggest that you sign up to run the race as well! Twitter Road Race.


What do you have planned for this week?

I always love seeing your feedback and comments, so make me smile and give my comments section some lovin’!

xoxo,

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!

Bootcamp

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!)

Running

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..

Revenge

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

SVU

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,

Ali

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?
