Super Good Girl Talks and I SUCK At Romance

Last night I watched the season premiere of The Biggest Loser. It was soooo inspiring! I became inspired to get in shape (I may weigh like 10 lbs but believe me...none of it is muscle....and I wheeze when I walk up stairs.) and become a healthier person (aka no more vodka and m&ms for breakfast). I said to Brody "I'm going to go to the gym and work out and start eating healthier!" And then my brain laughed and said "*SNORT* No you're not." And she was right so I finished my popcorn and beer and changed the channel to the Food Network and watched Paula Deen put 8 sticks of butter into a pot of Mashed Potatoes. 

Over the course of the last 2 months or so, Brody and I talked a lot about our future and what plans we have (which life looks at and laughs most of the time...but they're nice to have). What I realized is that I reallllllllllllly realllllllllllly want to make this blog work. And that takes time. I spend anywhere from an hour to 8 hours a day on this blog. I work on trying to find sponsors, I work on branding it, I work on social networking for the blog and of course writing it. It has become a second job, which it doesn't feel like work because I love it. But I needed to cut out some things from my life.

I started doing Slumber Parties in July, then I taken a break from blogging and was really excited about being a part of this awesome company. It was a fantastic way to make money and meet really awesome people. I love this company and love what it stands for. I love that it empowers women to take charge of their sexuality and teaches them how to have healthy sex lives. The consultants are incredible and the products are really high quality. I went full steam ahead for a few months and then started to slow down once I picked the blogging back up. A few weeks ago I realized that I no longer have time for SP anymore. And today I made the announcement.

I'm sad but feel more relieved. I feel like this is the right thing for me right now. And my amazing SP sponsor Jamie, who is THEE best, pointed out to me that if I ever want to pick it back up in the future, I can. 

Speaking of Jamie, I seriously had the best girl chat today than I have had in MONTHS! I don't know why I cut so much back on my girl time. It was so nice to be able to let loose, and talk about things that if some of my more conservative friends heard...they would gasp. HAHA! Nothing like dirty girl talk to make a gal's day (not THAT kind of dirty talk ya nastays). The only thing missing was a glass of wine. But it was like 11:30 in the morning. Which normally won't stop me but yeah I didn't want her kids to come home from school and meet me the first time and I'm a sloshed hot mess. 

Totally off topic...but I got teal colored pants. I'm kind of excited about it. And I'm wearing them right now. 

Speaking of wearing pants. I know I said I wasn't going to put any on or a bra yesterday but Brody and I remembered that we had a gift card to the movies and so I made myself look like a normal human being and we saw This Is 40. And It Is Hilarious. It was nice to actually get out of the house and do something. All weekend we just stayed inside and watched tv and played around on the computer (and did something else...but I don't kiss (ahem) and tell....). I started thinking about since we moved in together we stopped dating. A very very wise person once said "If he hasn't put a ring on your finger, he still needs to pursue you, and you need to pursue him because he hasn't put a ring on your finger". Beyonce's Single Ladies totally just popped into my head. NOW ITS IN YOUR HEAD!!! Have fun singing that for the next 6 hours!!! Anyways, I think that is totally true. And even after the ring is on your finger it doesn't mean romance just chucks itself off a 12 story building and smashes violently into the concrete spraying blood and guts over innocent bystanders and hot dog carts. I really want a hot dog now. So I think that we should try at least 1 or 2 Saturdays a month we leave off everything and just focus on us. But then I started thinking..."what do we do?" I don't think I can just stare at him all day. Although he is pretty friggin sexy I would get bored. Next week we are going to Applebees (why? Because we have a gift card and I get paid....) and then...I am going to try to do something romantic. So suggestions would be appreciated (nothing to expensive, I'm not made of money...or cheesy...I hate cheesy). Comment here about cute, romantic and inexpensive things you do to be romantic to your love muffin (PS if it's cheesy I WILL tell you) OR tweet me at itsme_arielleb. Stay classy San Diego!

  1. Aw, good luck with romantic ideas; I'm pretty terrible at coming up with those. I'm more of a "Let me take you out to dinner" type of gifter lol.

    But I totally know what you mean about spending a ton of time on a blog! I do that myself; some days I have all the energy and others it's a bit harder. Keep it up!
