Oh, Hey.

Remember me? The girl who sometimes blogs. And the girl who lost all track of time last week. It was a blur, that's about all I know. Sometimes I struggle with things to write about this time of year... simply because all I want to do is scream "I LOVE FOOTBALL!" but a person can really only say that so many times on a blog, right? Who knows?! But since I went MIA last week here's a quick update before I (hopefully) get back into the swing of things again.

- The Bengals looked GOOD in our first preseason game. I even recorded the game and re-watched it with Jared on Saturday. We're obsessed, we know. I'm beyond excited about this season.

- Jared was away at his team's football camp last Thursday-Saturday. They had a great time, but wow- I missed him. I know, I know- gag, right? But seriously, being away a few days from each other was tougher than I expected. I don't know how people who travel all the time for work do it.

- We impulsively bought a few things Saturday night on Amazon and I have zero regrets :) We never do stuff like that so we kinda' just went with it. Nothing big or extravagant by any means- but a couple fun things we wouldn't normally buy ourselves. Tuesday will be like Christmas at our house!

- I'm doing a DietBet for the second time and it is seriously SUCH a huge motivator for me. I am on track to "win" again and I plan to share my results and thoughts on DietBet once I weigh-in next week.

- I am SO excited about plans I have for this upcoming weekend and I can't wait to blog about it next week. Counting down the minutes already.

That's all I've got today folks. I'll leave you with this, in case you need a good smile at the office. How true is this???

  1. I want to do a dietbet. I have to plan for it though, because I don't have a full length mirror. I have to remember to get John to take my photo on the right day to start it off! And also probably buy a full length mirror one of these days. Ah well.
    GO BEARS (even though we only play you in preseason!)

  2. Oh team meetings, they are just ridiculous sometimes!!!!!!!

  3. I have no idea how couples do it when one person travels all the time! When Doug is gone for like a night, it's super weird!!

    I always love staff meetings when the whole point of the meeting is to plan another meeting. Really? Ugh.

  5. Totally understand what you mean about hating him being gone. My husband is a firefighter and gone 3 nights a week and I don't think I'll ever get used to it! Sometimes it's nice to watch a girly show or read a magazine but I would much rather have him home :) Have a great week girly!

  8. Yay for football!!!! I really want to do a diet bet but I am so afraid of feeling bad if I were to fail at it. That should be the motivation to do well...but it would just give me anxiety lol. Hope you have a great week!

  10. Yea I don't know how people do it when someone travels all the time. Or when one spouse is in the military and gone for months at a time. I was along for 1 week this past week and I was so ready for Mr. to come home!

  11. Who dey!?! I'm as pumped as you are for a new season. We went to the game and rewatched it on Sunday too! Here's to a new season!

  13. Ok, here's a question for you (a random, dumb question). Our local high school is the Bengals...and I'm trying to figure out if you pronounce it (bAngels) or another way.

  14. Having a traveling husband is tough, but I think about all of the travel miles that we're getting and it makes it worthwhile :) Hooray for football being back!

  15. Yay football! I was SO excited to watch football on Friday night, and my Jags won! Which is pretty much a miracle. :D Ugh I hate when my husband is out of town, I miss him so much and it's just weird when he's gone! LOL at the team meetings ecard, YES.

  16. I was in Cowboys country for the game on Friday, so I missed it, but WHO-DEY?! It's perfectly acceptable to treat yourself to some things every once in a while! I have to stay off Amazon for that very reason. ;) Can't wait to hear about your fun plans! Hope you had an awesome weekend, friend!

  18. I am SO sad we didn't get the preseason game down here. I was looking forward to watching it so much! Glad to hear they looked good though! And ohh can't wait to hear about your plans this weekend!

  19. You and Jared seriously have the sweetest relationship! I LOVE it! You know what else I'm loving? Your hair! Such a cute length on you!

  20. That ecard describes the first week & a half of school for me. I really wish preseason counted because the Vikings have won both of their games so far...

  21. Ahh the dreaded work meeting where you talk about work you should be doing, good times!

    My life seems to be moving in a blur right now too, so much craziness associated with back to school.

  22. I'm so happy that football is back! My Pack looked good as well, they really showed those Patriots who's boss! Tee hee!

  23. Yay Bengals :) And so true on the little cartoon at the bottom!!

  24. Feel free to write all about football whenever you want ;)

    Since you work for your favorite sport, do you get perks like free merchandise?

  25. That last ecard is no lie every single day of my life in my office. The worst!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Totally agree with you on the meeting ecard. I have a magnet on my desk at work that says "I hate meetings." Of course I have it on a drawer that only I can see, because I don't want everyone to think I'm a downer, but it does make me laugh!

  27. Ugh that DietBet is not my friend right now. Don't think I'm on track to "win" and it kind of bums me out that this will be my second one that I've lost. Doesn't help when I have completely fallen off the wagon in August. :-|
