Thursday Randomness & My Roxy Review

Hey y’all! Just wanted to drop in really quick this Thursday with some randomness. I worked the 4:30am shift at my gym this morning and then worked out after that, so now I’m home and needless to say, a little drained!

Fun stuff though, you might remember that as a blogger for Skinny Mom, I got to try out the new Roxy Outdoor Fitness Collection and provide a review. The review included a dare of doing yoga on the beach in their gear…check out the post here. Here’s a few of the pictures my lovely friend, Jackie, took of me on the beach for the post:

Hmmmmm…which one of these shall I make my new Facebook profile pic? LOL. We had so much fun that day…I posted on here how we ended up getting some delicious breakfast burritos and drinking a pitcher of Mimosas at Acme Cantina on Sullivan’s Island.

In other news, the hubby and my oldest son, Tanner, are off to Charlotte this weekend to meet our new niece, Payton. I really wish Breckin and I could go, but unfortunately, my Siberian Husky, Tundra, is having some health issues and I’m having to give her medicine every day for at least another week. Can’t take her to doggy daycare and don’t want to just pay someone to drop in here and there, leaving her in a crate all day Saturday and Sunday. And who could do that to this big baby?

She has no shame.

Jake’s brother and his family will be visiting here for Easter though, so not much longer until I meet the new addition. ♥

We spent a good bit of this week working on the new pantry and I can’t wait to reveal it to y’all on here. I need to paint the walls and I am trying to think of a way to prettify the shelves, giving it a little “pop”. So soon, my darlings, soon.

Well, that’s about it for now. Don’t forget to check out the Roxy post on Skinny Mom today! xoxo

Monday Musings: Early Spring?

Happy Monday, y’all! Hope you had a great weekend with the Super Bowl and all. I didn’t particularly care either way who won the game this year…but I was definitely lovin’ the commercials – how about you? Oh, and I was so stoked to see Destiny’s Child make a surprise appearance during Beyonce’s halftime show – took me back down memory lane – singin’ in the car to “Say My Name” with my best girlfriends in high school…I loved that group. Though Beyonce has still done very well for herself since going solo.

In other news, I’m sure you all know that Punxsutawney Phil has predicted an early spring this year.

CAN I GET A WOOOOOP???!!! 

I don’t even remember the last time he didn’t see his shadow…I always automatically expect the extra six weeks of winter, or whatever the old wives’ tales says. But to be honest, with the beautifully warm winter weather we’ve been having here in Charleston, SC, I can’t say I’m too surprised. And all of this warm weather is getting me even more eager for spring and summer weather…and to pull out the warm-weather wardrobe. I also can’t help but look around online for new things to lounge around the pool and beach in. I actually stumbled upon the cutest cover up {totally my style}:

 Gah! It’s just too perfectly pretty and totally something I would wear. Something I’m GOING to wear…as I just finalized the purchase online a couple clicks of the mouse ago! Plus, doesn’t it look very similar to this one that I swooned over last summer?
I’m also due for a new bikini or two…I didn’t buy a new one last year. Hubby will balk at this because I have a whole dresser drawer full of them, but many are several years old, or just fit weird now {baby #2 definitely shifted some things around} so I think I’m going to finally clean out that drawer and hopefully add in something like this Roxy Free Rampage bikini:

It would go just “swimmingly” with the maxi dress, don’t you think?
Enjoy your week! xoxo

Roxy Outdoor Fitness Collection

Take a look at the new Roxy Outdoor Fitness Collection for Spring 2013.
  
As a blogger for Skinny Mom, I get the opportunity to try some pretty cool new products {usually health and fitness related} at absolutely no cost to me. Gotta love perks, right?
Well, as you can see, the perks just got incredibly awesome. I am getting the opportunity to try any FOUR items from the collection I choose…and I will of course be posting my reviews like mad over on my Skinny Mom page.
As a longtime Roxy fan {when in college, I came thisclose to getting an internship in their graphic design department…ah, dreams…} You could ask any old friend of mine and they would tell you I owned more Roxy tees than anyone they knew. Working at a surf/skate/snow shop definitely had a lot to do with that too!
I am so excited, I’ll be sure to post here when they arrive…and then you can see them in action when I post the reviews on Skinny Mom. Can’t wait to let you know how they “work out” for me {pun definitely intended}…but I’m sure I won’t be disappointed!
You can view the entire Roxy Outdoor Fitness Collection Lookbook here.
