Published in: Just For Fun


Tabs working on his fitness

  1. Mood:
  2. Pretty good, although I’m having a hard time focusing this morning… I think I’m still in holiday mode.

  3. What’s the weather like out your way?
  4. Oddly overcast but warm. It must be some kind of morning mist/fog.

  5. Please take a moment to write yourself a little love love note:
  6. Your creativity is a gift; cherish and nurture it.

  7. Your favorite purse?
  8. These days it’s been my slouchy dark brown leather bag from Fossil. I like how soft and comfy it feels (like a jacket that’s been broken in) and that it has plenty of pockets.

  9. Flip-flops: yay or nay?
  10. YAY! — for bumming around the house or for running errands; nay for wearing to work. Oh, and nay for wearing when you have to do a lot of walking.

  11. What’s one of the best experiences you’ve had lately?
  12. On Saturday I went swimming for the first time this summer! If I could, I’d spend time every day in a (warm) body of water… Sometimes I feel like a mermaid trapped on dry land.

  13. What’s your favorite facial feature?
  14. I really do love the color of my eyes; at a glance they look like standard dark brown, but if you look really closely, you can see a navy blue ring around the edge of each iris.

  15. Favorite summer reading?
  16. The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins.

  17. Outfit:
  18. My favorite J Brand jeans and a Honolua yellow and brown floral print shirt.

  19. Weekly goals:
  20. Run every single day this week, and cook at least three healthy meals. :)

What up, ladies? Did you see any fireworks last night? I can’t believe it, but I spaced out and actually forgot about fireworks last night. After getting home from watching Eclipse, I just chilled on the couch with a magazine and passed out early. Yep, I know… My life literally OVERFLOWS with excitement and intrigue.
