Swollen Ankle

It's been a while since my last post. I can't say my days have been  interesting. Most of my days consist of hanging out by the pool, studying for my personal training test, and some shopping. J's parents did come visit for 2 days last week to see the new apartment. I also hurt my ankle last week so I haven't been able to work out much but the good news is I subbed for my first aquatics class yesterday. It is always difficult teaching someone else's class since the group is use to that instructor and how they teach. I did enjoy getting back to teaching and I'm excited to teach for the rest of the week. Here are some pictures from the past couple of days. I promise I have some more exciting plans in the next couple of weeks, so I will have more to post on.

This weekend was pretty interesting. I went to West Virginia to one of J's coworkers house for a bonfire party. He literally lit a whole tree on fire. We also camped out in his backyard and I freezed my behind off. I made Cookie Dough Cheesecake Bars to bring to the party. They were delicious but time consuming, next time I'll just buy the cookie dough.

Here are my Pictures of the Day and some other random pictures.
1. Art- The only "art" that is in my apartment. 2. Time-  Yes I took this today. i forgot to take a picture. Iphone 3. Yellow- I eat a banana almost every day.

Bonfire before it was lit.

4. Out and About- Bonfire 5. In your bag- Coach bag, Ray bands, Wallet, 2 Chapsticks, Keys, lotion, pen and Taylor Swift Perfume. 3.Something we don't know about you- I collect shot glasses from every place I go.

Friday Favorites: Reality TV


Today I am linking up with Bargain Blonde about my Favorite Reality TV shows.

Favorite Returning Show: Teen Mom

I absolutely love Bentley this season and it is hard to not enjoy the drama. Amber is still a train wreck. Catelynn and Tyler still annoy me and Farrah still does her annoying cry.

Favorite Brand New Series- Don't Be Tardy For the Wedding

I love any and all Housewives and this show is no different. I was crying my eyes out during her wedding.

Favorite Couple I love to hate: Alexis and Jim
Jim Bellino Jim Bellino and television personality Alexis Bellino attend the Jim Henson Company and PBS SoCal Dinosaur Train Event at Los Angeles Live Steamers Railroad Museum on May 7, 2011 in Los Angeles, California.
Alexis use to be my one of my favorite housewives but she is started to get on my nerves. Either way, she still makes the show entertaining.

Favorite Show I am bored with: Real Housewives of New York
The Real Housewives of New York Cast Pic
This season hasn't been my favorite, but it just started so my feelings may change.

Favorite Character(s) I unexpectedly love: Tamara and Heather- Real Housewives of Orange County

It seems like ever season I either hate Tamara or love her. This season I am liking her again. I also love Heather and how down to Earth she seems.

Favorite hair and makeup:

I would not mind looking like her. I would also like her wardrobe if possible too. Thanks.

Do you agree? Xo. K

I got the job!

I had my interview today and I was offered the job! I am now an aquatic exercise teacher at a local pool. They also told me that I could be a personal trainer there once I passed my test! I am so excited to enter the real world. I celebrated by getting chick-fil-a lemonade and then went out for Mexican with J.

Pool Time

This was the first weekend I was able to enjoy the pool at my new apartment complex. Friday night I stayed in and watched We Bought a Zoo. It was cute but somewhat long. Saturday J, his work friends and I all went to the pool and then went a couple bars in a nearby neighborhood. It was my first time there and I had a great time!
Here are Saturday, Sunday, and today's Picture of the Day.

1. Empty- pool 
2. On your plates- Oreo and Mad Men. My guilty pleasures
3. Close up- pink nails with some gold glitter.

How was your weekend?
