Happy Birthday to my sweetie! I snuck out of the office today and ran to Dessert Gallery to get him some cupcakes (because there is no need for a full cake in the house). So I thought I'd do my daily outfit pic in front of their jazzy sign. Here are my details...

So last night was a bit of a stressful night. I didn't get my cardio in like I wanted to. I was tooo busy working on my Halloween costume. V, Melissa, myself, and a few other friends are throwing our annual Halloween Bash this weekend. With all the moving and stuff going on, my costume got put on the back burner. So here I was running from store to store to pull my look together. It took forever with traffic. It was late and I was exhausted by the time I was done. I just made sure Will and I took a long walk after dinner. So should I tell you what my costume is? Anyone else dressing up???

My youngest brother works for a ticket agency and he scored us some sweet tickets to the So You Think You Can Dance Tour. We were huge fans of the show and I was so excited when he told me he got us front row, center seats. So the show starts and here I am snapping away with my camera, when boom, camera dies on me. My battery wasn't charged! Here are just a few pics I got before my camera went ka-put!
I also had a bunch of co-workers/friends have babies this past few weeks. My usually standard gift to new mommies are chic and fab diaper bags that look like oversize purses, but my friend Rebecca introduced me to her Hot Momma Wraps. Love them! I know a lot of new mommies have a hard time juggling everything under the sun while holding the baby. I've been to enough baby showers where Baby Bjorn were always appreciated gifts, but they were all so blah looking. My friend started making these wraps for herself and now she makes them for anyone and everyone. Since I had a baby shower to go to, I had her whip one up for me. It turned out so fab and so stylish. Here is the final product and my friend modeling her gift. Thanks Rebecca!

Jumping rope... Have you done this lately? I used to love it as a kid. I knew double dutch, criss-cross, double under, and the skier. I even did "Jump Rope For Heart" My BFF and I ruled the rope on the playground! So when I started working out again, I asked for a jump rope for my birthday. I had such fond memories as a child with my trusty red plastic rope. I figured I'd rekindle my love for it and get a good workout. Boy was I wrong! I guess I should explain how hot it is in Houston and I just don't care to be outside in extreme heat. So, I had this bright idea to jump rope in my apartment. Okay my whole apartment has carpet except the bathroom and kitchen, but I wasn't going to let that stop me. Like Tim Gunn says, "Make it work." I started on the living room carpet. It was so slow and I was tripping all over the place. My average was a good 3-5 jumps before tripping. So, I decide to move into my bathroom. It's a little narrow, but if I move my laundry hamper, I thought it might just work. I just needed some tile to jump on right? Yeah...the rope kept hitting the ceiling, hitting the toilet, bathtub, and anything else that could mess me up. My personal best was 10 jumps at the bathroom. I was still bound and determined to do this inside so I moved to the kitchen. In the kitchen, the wall, the counter, and the fridge weren't my friends, but the space was bigger. At least I once got 20 jumps in. After that whole fiasco, I hung my new jump rope back in the closet and haven't really taken it out since. So yesterday when my trainer told me I was going to jump rope during my session, I have to admit, I was a little nervous. I really didn't want to do 5 jumps or so and then trip in front of everyone. Well, let's just say, jumping was a breeze when you have nothing in the way. I got 68 jumps in in 30 seconds (yes, I was counting, Monica). Yay! I don't suck at jumping rope, I'm just a dork for trying to do it in the apartment (duh!). Since it's getting a little cooler outside, I may just take my jump rope back out and do a little criss-cross, double under, skier action. Hahaha... kinda makes me laugh at just the thought of it.Maybe one of these days I'll tell you about my embarrassing hula hoop disaster at Target. Yes, I said Target :-) Till then, jump for joy... it's Thursday! The weekend is right around the corner.
