Beauty and Brains

So, we all know Angie Harmon is gorgeous!! But I am a proud Republican today. Proud to have at least ONE ally in Hollywood (I know there are maybe 3, haha).. And proud that she spoke her mind and said what everyone has been wanting to say. I like Angie (we are def first name basis now) do not agree with one thing Pres. Obama is doing. It has nothing to do with his race and everything to do with the fact that he is LIBERAL.. You can read the article below..

Angie Harmon is not afraid to come out and say she doesn’t like how President Obama is handling the job — but she’s sick of having to defend herself from being deemed a racist.
"Here's my problem with this, I'm just going to come out and say it. If I have anything to say against Obama it's not because I'm a racist, it's because I don't like what he's doing as President and anybody should be able to feel that way, but what I find now is that if you say anything against him you're called a racist," Harmon told Tarts at Thursday’s Los Angeles launch of the new eyelash-growing formula, Latisse. "But it has nothing to do with it, I don’t care what color he is. I’m just not crazy about what he's doing and I heard all about this, and he’s gonna do that and change and change, so okay … I'm still dressing for a recession over here buddy and we've got unemployment at an all-time high and that was his number one thing and that's the thing I really don't appreciate. If I'm going to disagree with my President, that doesn't make me a racist. If I was to disagree with W, that doesn't make me racist. It has nothing to do with it, it is ridiculous." for full article

Interview.. Follow Up

I was over at my friend's in-laws house last night chatting excitedly about the job I applied for!! And her father in law mentioned he used to be heavily involved with the organization. He called and sent an email (with my resume attached) to one of the big wigs in D.C.!!! Yay!! It was so amazing of him to offer to do this.. I have a good feeling about this job... I just need to keep thinking POSITIVE thoughts!!

Application Is In!

"It's Pink and scented" "I think it add a little something extra"

Well, I finally got off my self loathing butt and applied for a new job. I am really excited about it. It is a great Association and it is more tailored to my industry which, I LOVE..

If you don't know, I am a political person who has been working in a law firm's marketing dept.. We got a new director about 6 weeks ago who is TERRIBLE..

Keep your fingers crossed that I get an interview, it would be an AWESOME experience!!!!

Now, hopefully all I need is an interview outfit. Maybe...

So after my pity party last night, haha.. I decided I should do something about it. Yesterday was just one of those days when everything crashed in at the same time..

Can anyone recommend a good book about the Mental Side of Dieting? I thought maybe this will help me focus...

My Serious Post....

I need some major therapy... I just can not get on the wagon to diet and workout. I have been going at this for YEARS and I lose a little and then I stop. I usually dont gain it back, but I stop losing. Then I start again and the cycle continues. But, this time I GAINED.. with my foot injury (which is finally feeling better, not heels better, but I will take it) I couldnt work out and I ate like total crap.. Now, I am paying for it. I am totally miserable about it.. I will be good for a day and then stress will get to me and I will crave and give in. It is like I have no self control for making bad food choices. Then I end up feeling worse than before. This week has been the worst, I was getting it from my personal life and professional life.

My hubby is frustrated with me (not that he thinks I should lose weight, but he wants me to be happy) he tries to encourage me and in turn I cheat and then dont tell him what I really eat when he isnt around.

It is a horrible cycle and all of you who go through this, I feel for you. HELP.. Anyone gone through this and overcome it. It is almost an addiction. I dont drink or smoke, I EAT...

Hope everyone is having a better week than me. At least Mitt Romney is on Larry King!! I love you Mitt!!!!

Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred

So, I know a lot of lovely ladies have been blogging about Jillian Michael's 30 day Shred. But, I have to tell you my review!

I bought it yesterday and I did it after work today..

Oh My Goodness! It is amazing, the workout is exactly what I have been looking for and I love Jillian Michaels. Usually the message from the perfectly sized instructor is "You will feel so good after this" and "Think how proud you will be", etc.. and maybe these messages work for some people. But I do messaging for a living and you need to be straight to the point and Jillian Michaels is! Her message.. if you want a great body "You have to earn it".. I love it.. really makes you think..

Funny Story for the Day

My BF (who lives in Dallas) was working out at her gym last night. She was having a nice workout and decided to finish it off with a sauna session. So, she gets in the sauna and starts to relax when another girl gets in with her. The girl proceeds to take off her shirt (luckily her tiny sports bra stayed on) and plugs her ipod into her ears and begins to dance or as my friend referred (booty shake) in the center of the sauna... My friend said the sauna has a clear glass door so people could see even on the outside.. She had to get out of the sauna becusae she could not stop laughing.

I thought this was hilarious and thought I would share. Hope it brightens up your afternoon and people PLEASE just relax in the sauna. HAHA..

More later!!

Channeling a 1950s Housewife Today...

Happy Thursday! Today is my last day of work this week. My hubby is in a wedding this weekend. So I get to take tomorrow off. We are leaving early (7am) Friday morning to make it in time for the Rehearsal and have a few hours for Mr. Bliss to study for his MPRE (big test he has to take before the bar).. Yes, I know you are all thinking, why would he take the MPRE on the day of his best friends wedding???? And my mother would say "Now, where are the three P's?? (Prior Proper Planning).. Well, they only offer the test once in the Spring and once in the Fall and he couldn't take it in the fall b/c he was clerking for a federal judge. But to makes things worse... THE GROOM has to take it along with two additional groomsmen.. Ridiculous.. Needless to say, they are going to be letting off some major steam at the Reception.

So think good thoughts for Mr. Bliss and misguided friends. He has to pass this to become a lawyer...

On to the hosuewife thing.. Since, these guys are going to be studying instead of drinking tomorrow night, I thought I would make some cookies for them to munch on... Here is what I am going to make, they are Paula Deen's Hidden Mint Cookies . I am going to make them little buckets with these cookies, some regular thin mints, samoas, and choc chip. I will post my creations later!!

18-ounce roll refrigerated sugar cookie dough, sliced 1/4-inch thin
14-ounce package chocolate mint wafers (HELLO GIRL SCOUT-THIN MINTS)
1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoon coarsely chopped walnuts or pecans, or enough to cover top of cookies

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Slightly grease a cookie sheet. Place slices of sugar cookies on sheet, about 2 to 3 inches apart. Top each with a chocolate wafer. Cover wafer with another slice of cookie dough. Brush dough with a beaten egg. Press nuts into top of dough. Bake for about 10 minutes.

And, I thought I would pack us a little lunch so we dont have to stop and eat fast food.... I thought I would pack this, some green apple slices and some bottles water!

Turkey, Mozzarella and Basil Wrap from Fitness Magazine
2 small (6-inch) whole-grain tortillas
3 ounces turkey
1 1-ounce slice part-skim mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil

Cut cheese in half.
Fill tortillas with turkey, cheese and basil.

Mary Kay Party..

So, I normally do not use Mary Kay (my mom always used Estee Lauder, so by default (and free makeup) so do I).. But my friend's mother in law started selling MK last month and this was her first party. I went with the intention of maybe buying a lip gloss or something small (Mr. Bliss, I promise!! haha)... But I fell in love with the colors I was trying on. Below is the look. I am very blonde/ blue eyes and I have always wanted this color palette, but couldn't find the right tone. But I love this.. What do y'all think??

Spring Swap!!!!

I just signed up for the Spring Swap at Confessions of a Semi -Slacker Mom.. Should be great!

Monday Ebay Day

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend! I did. I bought a cute dress for a rehearsal dinner this Friday! yay! I got my friend her baby gift, FINALLY!! I am thinking about selling some of my old stuff on ebay. I know alot of you guys do that. I am sort of new to ebay and I am currently bidding on some items.. If you have size 6 items, let me know!!! haha. Any tips for someone new to ebay selling?

I also watched some great movies.

Movie/TV Reviews:
Mama Mia! So cute! If you have seen it on Broadway and I have it is the cutest musical. This is not quite as good. But very entertaining and cute. I def recommend it.
Nights in Rodanthe: It was rainy on Saturday night and it was such a perfect setting for this movie. Such a tear jerker, if you want a totally romantic good cry movie, this is it!
Changeling: Awesome! My hubby even liked it. Great story and actors. I highly recommend it.
Running in Heels: New show on the Style Network about interns working at Marie Claire. So great, drama and fashion. What more can we ask for!

Gosh I feel like all I did was watch TV. Hahaha...
