shake it off

Oh helllllllllllllllooooo,

Fancy seeing you here, especially since I hardly come around these parts anymore. Summer, you're rough on the blog. Be more gentle would you? Anyway, here are some things going on in my life the past week and a half.

//The gym is officially open as of yesterday. It was a mad house. Over 2,200 members came on the first day and they are expecting even more today. Here we gooooo. On Saturdays I even get to teach an Adventure Racing Conditioning class. How cool does that sound? So far I love the gym and I love the people I work with. Plus, the facilities are beautiful. Now I just need clients who will want to train with me! 

//Highlight of my weekend was two fold - for the few hours I wasn't working at the gym I got to spend time with not only my college roommates, but also a special blog friend of mine came to visit Jessi and I. I think after this weekend we have convinced her to officially move to Portland. Our plan is working. Soon Jessi and I will take over the blog world. I have been blog crushing hard on Mackensie for a hot while now and I am so happy she finally came to visit. Now if we can just find her a job here in Portland, her and her puppy will be good to go. 


ps. can you spy the creeper in the background of this picture? 

//Today I had a Naked Green Smoothie after my morning workout and I didn't realize it had garlic in it. It is kind of weirding me out. Not a lot of garlic, but definitely enough to notice and it's too much for me before 8am, I think... I don't know why I just felt the need to tell you that, but I am currently trying to finish the drink and it's throwing me off.

//This little league coach almost made me cry, in a good way. 

Lastly, I hate myself for liking this song as much as I do. I am a TSwift hater for the most part, but I can't quit this song. 



Who am I? Where has my good taste in music gone? I must be sleep deprived....


Cheers!!

<3 BB

Taylor Swift is amazing. She may not have the greatest luck with relationships, but she knows how to put all the right feelings into a song.

Katie Qué said...

I'm one of the haters she mentions in this song, but I have been reformed because of this song.

P!nky said...

WOOHOO! So glad the gym is rocking and wow, that class sounds AMAZING! SO AMAZING! I want you to teach meeeee!

100% jealous of your blate...my butt needs to get to Portland to see you and Jessi, ASAP!

Oh taylor, she did it again :)!

Kelsey Higgins said...

I just watched that little league coach video and CRIED AT MY DESK. Like, had to take a 5-er in the bathroom to pull myself together. That got me right in the gut.

WELCOME TO THE GOOD SIDE! (T Swift lovers unite!!)

Allie R said...

One of my friends just moved up to Oregon and some of my girl friends are planning a girl trip hopefully in the next few months! Ps. That song is way too catchy!!!

Nadine Lynn said...

Well well well...look at you trying to recruit all these people to Portland! Love it!

I would totally be your client if you weren't across the country!

I haven't heard that T Swift song yet I don't think. I will have to check it out when I get home!

I'm so happy you girls got to spend time together!

Angi said...

So has T. Swift ditched the country music scene and decided to be a pop star now or something?

Kristen said...

Tswizzle can do no wrong in my eyes and I am in freaking love with her new song.

Becky Skidmore said...

Mmm...nothing like a garlic smoothie to start off your morning. Sounds divine...

Chelsea @ Delipsch said...

If I lived there, you'd 100% be my personal trainer girl! I am loving that song and the video is adorable :)

Kate @ Another Clean Slate said...

The new Taylor Swift song is so catchy- I feel the same way as you though! And definitely weird about garlic in your morning smoothie...

Photo bombers are my favorite!

Sounds like you're off to a busy, but good, start at the gym! Your class sounds really cool!
I also am loving T Swift's new song...and video...and pretty much everything about it. No shame!

alyssa said...

Don't worry, I can't get that song out of my rotation either. It's starting to be a real problem. And I'd totally train with you if I were in Portland!

Jess said...

That guy in the background is super creepy... but if i were up there in your area I would totally come train with you!

Tami said...

Heard this song on the radio this morning and was like, I hate it. I love it. I hate it. I can't decide. I'm soo pumped to hear more about your new gym gig!

Amanda - Voyage of the MeeMee said...

Bahahahah... oh, Bradley!
I just heard the TS song for the first time this afternoon... instantly hooked and I kind (I REALLY) hate myself for it.

Kenzie Smith said...
