We're Growing Grass (And Other Reasons I May Be Uninteresting)

School's been out for a week, but I've been pretty busy working with our English department--curriculum stuff.  It probably sounds boring, but it was cool to discuss the things we do in our classrooms because I got some good ideas to use for next year.  I don't know about you, but I work better when I have someone to bounce ideas off of.

On top of that, Favorite and I have started the grass-growing process.  (No, not marijuana.  Actual grass.  For our front yard.  You know, so we can get rid of the wheat field.)  Hopefully it will start sprouting in the next week or so and we can talk about laying a sidewalk before the end of June. 

And I discovered today that you can do about 100 crunches in 5 minutes and that really only burns about 40 calories.  Isn't that ridiculous?!  This is why people don't exercise. 

Well, people who aren't me, because I have to wear a strapless dress in October.  Have I mentioned I hate writing on my board because my arms are gross?  No?  Well, that applies doubly to strapless dresses and I REFUSE to have my nasty arms documented in pictures for all of eternity.  Anyway, all of that information means I've been trying to do some sort of regular exercise every day. 

Every.  Single.  Day.  What can I say?  Devotion.  I gots it.  (Except not.  Which will probably be documented in another blog post approximately 4 weeks from now.)

At least 10 minutes has been devoted to an arm exercise I found on my phone.  I've been doing it twice a day (5 minutes each time) praying that my 5 lb weights might actually make a difference in the digusting pool of cellulite that is my arms. 

Did I really just devote an entire paragraph to the type of exercise I'm doing?  Ugh.  Feel free to un-follow me.

I should be telling you that I actually purchase the desk I put on here and it will be arriving next week.  My package from Amazon with several of my to-reads also arrived today along with presents for my Bible study women.  (The presents aren't a big deal, but I promise to post a picture after they receive them on Sunday.)

Stay tuned for a post devoted solely to my Bible Study Women.

Oh, and one devoted to Lia Sophia because I'm going to a party my friend, Morgan, is hosting on Saturday.

Nothing says the weekend like buying jewelry.

Enjoy yours!  Oh, and leave me some diet/exercise encouragement in the comments lest I decide crunches are totally not worth it...

The good news is there is no skinny bridesmaid we will have to smother. Do the crunches. I'll be doing them, too.
