— It was really hard to get back into working out after having a few days off. I had full intentions of getting a good work out in yesterday when I had off, but it didn’t happen. Goes to show you that if I don’t wake up and do it FIRST thing in the morning, it won’t get done!

–My redneck neighbors are still setting fireworks off as of last night and I sort of just want to shove one up their ass. The 4th is over, please STOP! They aren’t even pretty ones, just the noisy as fuck ones.

— I might be the whitest person ever. When I was at the beach, I had to wear SPF 110 on my face and SPF 50 on my body. I also have to be sure to reapply every 80 minutes like the bottle says or I come in looking like a lobster. Gotta love the Irish skin!

— When I signed in to Bloglovin’ Tuesday morning, I saw that I had 396 unread posts. Maybe I hit “mark all as read” and moved on with my life. That shit was out of control!

— I am addicted to the Stephanie Plum series. I just finished another off yesterday afternoon and will be moving on to book six. I can’t be stopped!

    OMG I can’t believe there were 396 unread! I would have hit mark all as read too!!

    I’m the worst at reapplying my sunscreen, my shoulders always end up red. I’m going to buy some spray on shit because I think it’ll be easier to remember and put on.

    I hate firework abusers, just stop that shit. It’s only fun on special occasions and even then my dog hates it.

    Yayyy for Stephanie Plum, she rocks!!

    I love the Stephanie Plum novels, I’ve read them all. Grandma Mazur and Lula crack me UP.

    I loathe fireworks. My neighborhood is like Beirut. Then again they set them off on random Mondays, Mother’s Day, etc. They need no excuse.

    YAY for stephanie plum!!! you make me want to read them again.. i think i skipped number 6 because my mum didnt have it but i THINK something important (wiggles eyebrows) happens in that book. #justsaying
    also i feel you on the working out. i need to get up early and kick my butt, i do not like to kick my butt in the evening. in the evening if i work out, its never as hardcore as if i had gotten up in the morning. like i’ll go for a run, but i’ll half walk as well because its too hot to run. really i’m just lazy.

    I think the Monday after the fourth is the hardest work day of the whole year.

  • Reply Teh Megan July 9, 2014 at 1:41 pm

    My Feedly gets overwhelming like that sometimes, so I have to go through the different categories to weed out what I’m not really interested in reading. #Firstworldproblems, lol

    and ANAL GLAUCOMA… HOLY CRAP.. I wonder.. would that work?

  • Reply Jana @ Jana Says July 9, 2014 at 2:43 pm

    I confess I have never read a Stephanie Plum book. I don’t even know if that is the character or the author.

    And the ecards! I always find myself laughing and agreeing with every single one.

  • Reply lauren July 9, 2014 at 3:31 pm

    HAHAHA oh my gosh i’m laughing at every single thing in this post. all of the ecards. the 4th and noisy as F fireworks…seriously they need to stop. i can’t stand it anymore, i dont have a direct neighbor doing this, but one in the vicinity. GO AWAY and they suck too. the stephanie plum novels are such fun and so easy, reads!! have you seen the movie one for the money. it sucks but i still kind of like it, even though katherine heigel is trying WAY too hard with the accent.

  • Reply Kerry July 9, 2014 at 4:24 pm

    I haven’t read the Stephanie Plum series! Gasp! I need to look into that one. The fireworks would irk me too. Enough already!

  • Reply Lisa July 9, 2014 at 4:27 pm

    Hey Nadine!!! Ohh no still shooting fire works!? WUUHHH that’s madness!! I had a few neighbors shooting them off (and yes just the noisy ones) over the entire weekend and it drove me bonkers.. It was for long but it pissed me off while they lasted .. I cant imagine what days and days must be like!! LOVE the e-cards as usual, they made me bust-out-laughing!! 😀 XOXO

  • Reply Em July 9, 2014 at 4:50 pm

    OMG if my neighbors set off anymore loud-but-noisy-as-shit fireworks I will completely lose it! It’s even worse because we live off the lake by a ton of trees…How safe right? Idiots!

  • Reply Kenzie Smith July 9, 2014 at 5:05 pm

    I get so irritated when people continue lighting off loud ass fireworks after the fourth. Ugh.
    Also, the Stephanie Plum series IS SO FREAKING GOOD! I am about to go out and buy the latest book 😀 I love her Lizzy & Diesel series too. Actually I like all of Janet Evanovich’s books ha ha.
    Those e-cards are amazing.

    396?!?! Girl that’s crazy! When I went on a 2 week holiday I came back to a shitload of blogs to read but I chose my reading list based purely on the Title… clearly The don’t judge a book by it’s cover didn’t work for me lol

  • Reply Jackie July 9, 2014 at 10:56 pm

    1–my husband is super white too and it terrifies me how easily he burns.

    2–I love Stephanie Plum. I think I’m all caught up except for the 2 latest books released.

    3–I gave myself a three day weekend next week because I just can’t handle the thought of working another full week.

  • Reply Kate July 9, 2014 at 11:15 pm

    I’m the same way about working out. I hate waking up and am not a morning person but if I don’t do that then I won’t do it at all.

  • Reply Amanda July 10, 2014 at 12:14 am

    “Mark All Read” is the SHIT lately. I’ve been doing it a ton. No shame in my game. Except I made the exception today to read yours b/c I ruv yew! 😀

  • Reply Elizabeth Smith July 10, 2014 at 1:41 am

    haha I feel you on having to reapply sunscreen religiously! I can get away with 30 or 45 spf but it absolutely must be reapplied regularly to avoid lobster burns. Irish/scottish/british/german skin over here!

  • Reply Laura July 10, 2014 at 1:45 pm

    Ecards on point as usual!! Plus, I looove your skin! I think it’s so pretty! I still have no idea how you motivate yourself get outta bed and work out. Props to you!

  • Reply Bri @ My Life As July 11, 2014 at 2:24 am

    I haven’t done my workouts for today yet except for my 2.5 mile walk. I really need to get on it because I don’t want to miss any days & it’s 9:30 at night ha. I blame it on not being home since yesterday morning.
