Confessions of a Brunette on the Internet 277

I'm so thankful that it is summer. I just love the long warm and beautiful days and being outside and getting to play after work and the weekends. I love it.

I already blogged about my eventful weekend of going paddle boarding up the mountain and going to the rodeo.

My sister Jamie and her family have been in town so I have been going over to my parents house a little more. Jamie said she would be my exercise buddy, we have went running and have done some video's together. It's nice. I love having family in town and family close by. It's been fun just hanging out. Tonight we went to the food truck round up! I hadn't been since the fall. So many new trucks! It was fun. I always enjoy it.

Speaking of the food truck round up. I ate SUPER low calories today so I wouldn't feel guilty about whatever I ate there. It worked. I still didn't go over my calories for the day. I have been really good with My Fitness Pal. Keeping to my calories almost everyday. I think there was only one day I went over. Mostly because I didn't exercise that day. I am feeling good. I can tell my body is more happy with me. Now... I just need to wait for the pounds to start coming off and for me to start feeling it in my clothes.

Over the weekend I also saw the new Pixar movie "Inside Out". I hadn't seen a lot of previews for it and it was opening weekend so I hadn't heard many reviews on it either. However... it's Pixar. They rarely let me down. Except for "Brave" that one was a bit of a let down. Anyway... I LOVED it! So cute and clever and relatable too. I really liked the message at the end too. Not something I think about all the time, but very true. I totally recommend it.

My costume came for the next music video I am going to be in. It's a pretty cool costume I think. I am going to be the Evil Queen from Snow White and the Huntsman in RJ's next music video. A parody of Taylor Swifts Bad Blood. Should be cool... there will be a lot more props and different scene locations and it seems like we are going to have less characters (I could be wrong) and so maybe I will get a little more screen time, especially since I have a real character this time. And a lot of this video is about the villains. Guess we shall see. I'm excited either way.

I also got to hang out with my friend Liz this week. Always love my Liz time. It had been a while. Funny we planned to lay out by the pool. We were supposed to lay out on Wednesday but last minute she changed to Tuesday. Wednesday was a very sunny day. Tuesday the sun was hiding behind the clouds the entire time.. so we ended up just sitting in the shade next to the pool since the sun wasn't out anyway and just chatted. It was nice regardless. Hopefully it will not be so long before we get together next time.

I need to start bringing stuff home from my work office. I saw the size of my new cube. It's very small. They are being nice to us and sitting us in a cube next to the window... but it's still all pretty depressing. I hate it. I really really hate it. The move is getting closer and closer and I am not ready and I don't want it. I really need to get more serious about looking for a new job. Tyler and I were both talking about that. I'm so sad I won't be sitting close to Tyler anymore since he is my closest friend at work. Ugh.

I started watching Heroes on Netflix. Nice change from my last show. The more shoes I watch the more I recognize actors from other shows. I am recognizing A LOT from Heroes. I am in season 3... only one more season after this one and I only started this week. I like it but I can already tell you that the first season is the best one. I already feel like it isn't as good anymore. I am still enjoying it though.

I found a new roommate to move in. Allison is moving out today. I still need to find one more roommate. I hate trying to find new roommates. It's always awkward when you don't know people and trying to figure out if they will be a good fit for the house. Another girl came to look tonight. I liked her. She seems cool. I hope she takes the contract, but who knows. I have had plenty of girls come look and not end up taking it.

We FINALLY got Google Fiber. It only took a little over a year from when we signed up for them to come and set us up. Talk about patience! Now we need to switch the box because Allison is the one that signed us up and she is moving, so we need to switch it to my name. What a pain. I hope it is worth all the hype. At least it's free internet.

Well. I think that is all for me. This month has flown by. I know all of summer will be like that. It has been action packed so far and I hope to keep it that way. :) I'm excited for all of my upcoming adventures. Utah really is a fun place to live when it comes to the outdoors and being surrounded by lots of people who love the outdoors. Thankful for that!

I'm glad I've been seeing you and exercising with you even though we both hate it. Ha. And the food truck roundup was cool, thanks for the recommendation. I agree with your "Heroes" assessment, I feel like that happens with a lot of shows. First season is good, the rest flounder.

And yes, your evil queen costume is awesome.
