Things I Learned this Beach Weekend

Writing to you here from the Oregon Coast, my friends!


I'm on a three day weekend with my family so that means great meals, bonding time with my sisters and 2 extra hours back in my day with no commute. It also meant I didn't have to wake up today at 5am to do my favorite "workout or don't workout" game.  That can get exhausting.

First before we get into things I learned this weekend, let's give my mom a huge round of applause for her blog debut - Just Me, Angie!

Follow on Bloglovin' to get her very first published post and all of the fun that comes after that.

It's Monday so we're recapping in the most fun way I know how:


:: I learned that I'm a ninja when it comes to protecting my Mac Book from a coffee spill.
:: I learned that I'm a two-mimosa minimum girl.
:: I learned that the serving size of dried cranberries (1/4 cup) is WAY less than I thought it was.
:: I learned that I like being on beach time.


:: I learned that it doesn't take an entire weekend to design a blog if your client isn't picky.
:: I learned that EDM is my soulmate workout genre (Electronic Dance Music)
:: I learned that a Sunday stretch day is the best thing I can do for my tired muscles.


:: I learned that coconut oil cleans out the system. But really.
:: I learned that sister bonding time is the best way to unwind. (<---Bailey Bella --->)





:: I learned that I like not going to the office on Monday!

Okay, get out of here and go read mom's first post!

as a former hardcore raver, i fully support EDM to pump up the jam during workouts. i don't listen to any of the new stuff though; that's too eurotrash for me but i'm into the older djs circa mid-90s. many have retired but their stuff still is awesome.
