10 Things I LOVE.

Good morning!!!

I woke up in a GREAT mood this morning (I've had some wonderful sleeps this week) and am ready to share some things that I love today!

Carolyn tagged me in "10 Things I Love" so I figured for this edition (since I participate in What I'm Loving Wednesday) that I will try to share some different things that I haven't mentioned before..which could be tricky because once I love somethin, I really love it! 

You all know by now my love for: my husband, froyo, my dog, the beach, food, Robert Pattinson, chocolate, my iphone, traveling, the sun, and froyo (did I mention that yet?) so I won't mention those again ;)

Here's my 10:

1. Workout clothes

I absolutely love dressing up and getting all girly girl, but I feel most comfortable when I'm in workout clothes! My favorite shorts are Lululemon's Speed Shorts (picture 1) they are so comfortable and not too short. I love Lululemon in general but that store can seriously break my bank and quick! Yoga pants = heaven. My other favorite places to buy workout clothes are Target and Dicks (for Under Armour..slight obsession).

2. Jeeps

My first car was a Jeep Grand Cherokee (thanks pops!) and I miss it everyday. I loovee the new 2011 so much.

3. White clothes (white blazers, white shorts, white skinny jeans)

I love me some white...but being TAN and wearing white is the best.
 I think it's so flattering!

4. The treadmill

We have a love/hate relationship.
I'm madly in love with it when it's too cold to run outside, but I hate how it makes my knees feel :(
This is me last night trying to help with the pain in my knees..anyone know if this actually works, or do I just look stupid?! :)
Also pictured...Rocky desperately wanting me to play with him.

5. Bare Essentials makeup
I have never enjoyed wearing foundation (actually, I have never worn it but know I would hate it) but I wanted makeup that was easy enough for me to use and still gave me good coverage...ding ding ding...Bare Essentials. My friend, Genna, who did my makeup for my wedding introduced me to it and I can't see myself using anything else as of now.

6. Tennis shoes 

I own too many tennis shoes but I can't helppppp it.
 These are my favorite right now. I don't wear them to run in, but just to wear to the gym. I love the bright blue color and they are really light shoes.

7. Funny, positive , kind people

I realize this is somewhat obvious. Don't we all love nice people? But I feel like sometimes it goes unnoticed. It's important to me to surround myself with people that motivate me to be a better person.

8. Sleeping when it's raining

so soothing and helps me sleep like a baby.

9. Back scratches and hand/scalp massages

I will do just about anything to get Billy to scratch my back. He says he does it so often that his fingers are going to fall off HA HA
In the first few years of dating, I could get away with *perfectly positioning* my back under his arm, or my arm under his hand, to get in the perfect place for him to scratch without me having to ask. But now, almost 7 years later, he's unfortunately caught onto this game of mine. He still does it all the time though and I love him for this :)

10. Ray Ban sunglasses

Love them all.

Hope you enjoyed my 10 things!
I'm not going to tag anyone in this, but if you feel like doing this, I would love to read it so let me know if you do!!

Before I go...

Here's a great article that Billy sent me this morning ~

 The 6 Snacks You Should Eat Everyday!

I got really excited when I read this because all of these snacks are staples in our fridge except the pretzels. I'm not too much of a pretzel girl. Unless there is chocolate melted on top..then I'm all OVER it.

  1. I love those workout shorts!!!! I have a serious addiction to the clothes and need more of an addiction to actually working out. Ha. Bare Essentials is the best...LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I loved reading your 10 things! Have a great day!

  2. The treadmill does the same thing to my knees! Everytime I transition from treadmill - outside my knees take a blow....and it's not helping the older I get haha. I even feel like after running on the treadmill for so long -- has slowed me down running outside!! At least we are still active! Thanks for the snack tips too! I am the queeeen of grazing!!

  3. I am loving almost every single thing that you love too!
    I feel the same way about the treadmill. Except instead of my knees that hurt, its my hips.

    love your blog!
    kae-barefeet make me happy

  4. My left knee has been hurting me too!! I don't know why my right one hasn't. It also hurts on the back side of my legs opposite my shins. I just keep running and it seems to work itself out. I want to order some lululemon stuff. The store is slowly coming back online; we don't have one here. Any other recommendations for lululemon running stuff? Especially pants and tops...

    I also love those wayfareres. I've been looking at getting some new sunglasses!

  5. I LOVE workout clothes too! :) I also LOVE to sleep when it's raining!!

  6. Maybe my husband isn't as crazy as I make him out to be because he puts his legs up like that after he works out ALL THE TIME! He says it's because when you work out, lactic acid builds up which can cause swelling in your knees (if they are bad) and also muscles around them. When you put them up it allows said lactic acid to drain to your heart and your heart pumps it out. So, the short answer is no, you don't look stupid. :)

  7. Love it all, especially the Ray Ban sunglasses, too cute! I'm too cheap to buy them, so I just rock my knock off's, ha!

    Hope you're having a wonderful day, girl!


  8. I loooove the Ray Bans! I am secretly hoping they will be in my Easter basket from my husband--but he doesn't normally do Easter baskets so we'll see if he gets the message! Thanks for the snack tips--that's so helpful! :)

  9. Okay, I am sooooooooo in love with the new Jeeps!! I am patiently waiting for my husband's Jeep to die so we can get a new one and then I can drive it and he can drive my car! :) And I am also shopping for some fabulous white jeans!

  10. I love the new Jeep Grand Cherokee! It looks sooo nice, but my car works great so I guess I will have to admire from afar!

  11. My hubs has been going on & on about how much he loves the new Jeeps ... And I really do too! :) I was looking at those Nike shoes the other day but for running shoes ... Wonder how they'd do?!

    xo! Lauren @ tickled.

  12. I love the picture of Rocky wanting to play......Aspen does the same thing the second I lay on the floor for anything she thinks ah hah! mommy is on my level!

    How many pairs of tennis shoes do you own?

  13. You don't have any kids, huh? I figured, or else you wouldn't be having those great night sleeps :)

    I LOVE lululemon!!! So flattering, no?? I love white clothes and can't wait til I'm skinny enough to wear them!

    and the dreaded treadmill, I have one in my house so I have no excuse but I HATE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. This is the perfect blog for anyone who wants to know about this topic.
