Now you answer one πŸ˜€

In other news, I have been working on my Survivor audition tape…no joke.Β 

Who knows if I will actually send it in or not. But I have always wanted to try. So it’s worth a shot! Plus, I want to see Jeff Probst’s dimples in real life.Β 

I also got my best friend the best Christmas gift. Ever.

I ordered it from Sticky Life. I just might need to get one for myself. That way, we can be twins πŸ™‚

I also finally succeeded in making a loaf of bread.Β Whenever I make bread, it usually turns into a brick. Super dense and no rise. But finally, a good loaf! It’s maple oatmeal from Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day. (P.S. I don’t know who their kidding. This did not take 5 minutes.)

Now I’m off to watch Elf because my sister is crazy and has never seen it before. I know…how are we possibly related?

P.S. Check out my guest post over at Surviving Candyland!

  1. You should so send in that audition tape! I mean, what have you got to lose? I used to watch survivor on a regular basis with my dad when I was younger. When a new episode came on that was our quality time spent together, brings back some good memories. Congrats on making your first bread! And a bread that takes 5 minutes to make? I really don’t think that’s possible. Homemade bread is the best though!!! πŸ™‚

  2. Your sister has never seen elf?! Oh wow! Pretty sure I watch it every christmas. She’s going to love it for sure πŸ™‚

    You are a champ for loving stairs and hills so much! Love the bucket list too! Boston marathon is on mine! It will probably take me my whole life to achieve but I’m not in a hurry πŸ™‚

  3. omg im so jealous that you got to see Jillian MIchaels in person. :OOOOOOOOO!!!! and she does have the best motivational quotes. Sometimes during a workout, I imagine her yelling at me πŸ˜›
