Work It Out Wednesdays

I CAN NOT BELIEVE THAT I FORGOT TO W.O.W LAST WEEK!!!
I didn't realize it until I was going to bed, Oopsie. Forgive me?! 

My best friend told me this years ago, I do mean years like 9, "Tan fat looks better than white fat." I swear this has STUCK IN MY HEAD! I have auburn hair ,naturally, and freckles- geesh! I don't tan easily. I refuse to go to the tanning bed (been there, done that). I try to lay out, but sometimes I just don't have the time. I bought Jergens Natural Glow Express yesterday and I'm super excited about it. I just don't want to be streaky and orange. 

Natural Glow Express

Does anyone have advice on using it? Or know of any great natural looking self tanners? I'm in need of a little color by next wednesday! HELP! 

September 28: Weigh-In- 127.5
Total Weight Loss- 3.5lbs

Now, go on witcha bad self and work it out!

Corn Maze

Have you ever been to a corn maze? It's so much fun. It takes about 2 hours to get through, but one year it took us FOUR hours to find the way out - Getting lost is half the fun. They also have a fire pit for s'mores (my faviiie), a huge slide-made of pipes, inflatable horse races, and so much more. Next weekend it turns into "Deceased Farms", I'm too chicken to go. The whole experience screams Fall. 

How cute are we?



Right before I face planted on the ground...


Do you have any fun fall things to do where you live?

Sista' Surprise

About two weeks ago Autumn, my sister, said that she was going to be coming home this weekend. Then, last week, she informed us she wouldn't be able to make it because of a social. Well... Yesterday I found out that she WAS going to be coming- YAY! So I got to spend a little bit of time with her (a little is better than nothing). Here is a picture from late last night..

It's funny... As I get older and I hug my family it becomes more than a hello hug. I'm not quite sure what you would call it, but I find myself hugging my sister tighter and longer than I used to. I guess its because deep down I know they will slowly get fewer and far between. By no means am I saying I won't see her, but a hug every six weeks from her makes me sad. Bleh... Done with the gushy stuff.

Do  you have any fun weekend plans?

Anytime I'm feeling HOT HOT HOT - I sing a little song and it goes a little something like this... 
Ooooh she fine, ohh ohh she sexxaaaay!

Can Anyone Say RED?

Let me take you back 9 years...I was about to start my sixth grade year at Hand Middle School and I had to get my hair done. (and we all know that 12/13 is a big fat awkward year for girls!)  So my Meme took me to get a TRIM. I explained to the lady not to go near my bangs, I was growing them out, and just to take an inch off the back. Well... After I got those words out of my mouth she took my bangs and hacked them off, I don't mean an inch or two, I'm talking like 7- they were hanging ,maybe, two inches from my scalp. Oh My Goodness. I seriously had to stop myself from yanking those scissors out of her hand and throwing them at her face. All I could do was cry, cry, cry, and cry some more! Ofcourse my Meme is saying "ohh it'll grow back in no time", I didn't want it to grow back in "no time" I wanted them back NOW- For crying out loud it looked like I had a MULLET! How on earth was I suppose to start MIDDLE SCHOOL WITH A MULLET?!!!!?? (Its okay to laugh, Im passed it-sort of)  Needless to say, I didn't go to the first two days of school... ( I would show a picture, but then someone could take it and plaster it everywhere! Ha) 

Fast forward to now....I have found my hair mate. 

One of my closest friends told me about Christine (every time I say her name I hear angels in my head sing hallelujah hallelujah) and I finally decided I should do something with these locks of mine. I made my appointment, my mom went with me, and as soon as I sat in her chair I started to break out in hives! Im telling you, I had serious hair anxiety. She must've been thinking this girl is a freak, why did Crystal send her to me! We started talking, I became more lax, and said I need a serious trim and I want highlights! I had pictures to show her of exactly what I was looking for and not only did she deliver - it was way better than I had envisioned! She is the BOMB-DIGGITY! After the hour I was there I not only walked out feeling relieved, looking good, but I had made an awesome friend and hair-mate for life! So now, Im like lets DO THIS! I want to go RED! Here are some pictures of what I want, What do you think? Yay or Nay? ( I would really appreciate feedback friends) 




GO RED or GO HOME is my motto for Saturday!

Work It Out Wednesdays

Okay, so yesterday was a day from you know where. I dropped my car off to get serviced and when I got back to pick it up it wouldn't crank, uhhh HELLO? When I left it, it was running wonderfully- now not so much. I had to get the battery replaced! Which isn't so bad I just wasn't in the mood! Whatevs, On top of a not so great day at work, I felt as if I was coming down with a cold... Nothing a little nyquil can't fix.

SOOOO this morning I'm feeling GOOD! 

Yippee!! I have decided Im going to get my ZUMBA CERTIFICATION! Ekk! Im super duper excited. I have to look at when the next available instructor training will be, but I'm stoked! I spoke with several of the ladies that are in my classes and my instructors and they were all like OMG, You'll do great! I'll keep you posted! 


This week was fairly easy with staying on track! I "messed" up one day and ate at about 8:15pm which I HATE to do, but ehh a girls gotta eat!

I love to run to this! 



September 14: Weigh-In- 128.4

GIVEAWAY!!!

Yes, you read that right. Famous...In My Own Mind is having a GIVEAWAY! Can I get a What What?!

Erin from EMarie Designs has graciously given one of my lucky readers the Horizon feather extension. This isn't your ordinary feather extension that you'll see in EVERYONE else's hair. If you know me ,or if you don't you'll get to know, that I'm not interested in what everyone else is doing! These feather extensions are made with the top of the line feathers and they have an easy to place clip. Just snap open the comb, place it where ever in your hair, snap it close, and voila you're done. You won't have to worry with it the rest of the day- it stays in place! When it's time to take it out, its just as easy and won't pull or damage your hair. When you're wearing one of her extensions you'll definitely be asked, "Where did you get that? Its so pretty." Trust me I know, I have the Flight extension and I swear I was asked a dozen times! :)

If you're looking for that extra special "something" to take your outfit to the next level- Check her out. She has something for everyone from the little ones to the ladies. Take a peek- I promise you won't be disappointed.

Like her on Facebook to keep up with latest styles, contests, and happenings!

Here is the Horizon, that one of my awesome readers will be sporting soon:
