Hay, Y'all HAAAY!

Your eyes are not playing tricks on you, there is a NEW post here. Shocking, I know, but I've finally made some time for this poor neglected space. It's been hard being away, I miss reading about everyone's lives and interacting every day. I think I have a modified scheduled figured out going forward, however things could change on a dime so I guess we will see.

What have I been up to you ask? Well, I guess I'll tell you.

Last weekend was a doozy as Sporstpyce brought 15 of her closest friends down to Knoxville for her bachelorrette party. Yes, you read that right, 15 girls in my aunt and uncles house for a weekend. EGAD! It was a lot of work, a lot of planning and a lot of corralling but it was also a ton of fun and everyone had a blast. #stillneedmoresleep





I'm still working part time at the front desk for Gold's and teaching Bodypump. My body was all out of wak the first week of work as this experience is my first foray into anything retail or service. Standing for six hours is not a walk in the park [not that I thought it would be] and learning all the ins an outs took a bit longer than expected. I will say I am pretty good at greeting everyone with a smile ;)! This was my third week mixing in the front desk with teaching and my body [and mind] has finally found a rhythm. I've been doing a TON of subbing for BODYPUMP and will FINALLY be getting my own evening class at the end of the month. There has been a lot of positive feedback which makes me smile and there is also talk of me pursing a personal training certification which is mind boggling.


Searching for a nine to five job is still in the works and yes it's gotten a bit frustrating. Things that appeared to be moving forward have just stalled. Le Husband and I knew it wouldn't be easy to make this transition but there have been moments harder than expected. I'm praying for the right job or the right path and hope soon to have great news to share. Thank you all for your support, it means a ton. We're managing to keep our optimism and I truly believe this was the right move for us in this stage of life. The people here have been great, my family continues to be amazing and we are both slowly starting to find a tribe down here. Everything will come in time and this view always helps.


Sportyspice is getting MARRIED in eight days, OH MY GOSH. I'm so beyond excited, y'all! I'll be heading home next week to help get everything ready and I can't wait to celebrate her prefect day. Blogging will totally be sporadic next week, but I'll be popping in share some of the fun pictures.

The weekend after the wedding will be another busy one for me as I'll be pursing another Les Mills certification, BODYATTACK. Originally I had hoped to get CXWORX or BODYFLOW however those trainings are much further off and this one is right here in town. I've only taken two attack classes under my belt but an incredible instructor has offered to mentor me so I'm taking a HUGE leap and just going for it.

Of course I can't sign off without talking about the OLYMPICS!!! Y'all know I'm an OLYMPICAHOLIC and it's honestly killing me to not be posting more about the events and everything down in Rio. Working at my old job I was able to stream events live and watch them live as well and right now that's not really an option. Thankfully I've caught all the big events in the evenings. Gymnastics has been phenomenal, swimming is rocking it and I cannot WAIT for all the track and field events. Let's GO, USA!

Wow, that's a lot of stuff in one post. So, yeah, that's my life right now, haha. I hope you are all doing well, I miss you lots and lots and hope to do some jumping around today in blogland. Wishing y'all the best weekend! < 3

You have been so busy! I can't imagine how fun your sister's party was-- everyone looks so gorgeous! What is bodyattack? We go to a Golds so we have the option of classes but I haven't gone to one in years because I always get worried I won't know what I'm doing or be able to keep up or something!
