Wife of the Century and Bungee Jumping.

Welcome to  It is a full blown obsession.  Just remember that fro-yo has calcium, marshmallows give me happy feelings and pb fro-yo is a great source of protein:)  I met up with my bff from high school, Sarah, and her adorable daughter Elliot.

IMG 5311

As soon as ASH was off work she came and met us too.  It is normal to hang out there for two hours and if it wasn't for my teachers salary and obsession with buying the latest Apple products I would have gone for round II of ice cream.

Rain boots on children are the cutest things in the world.

IMG 5312

After taking over Yogurtland (I think I just need to get a part time job there) I headed over to Billow's (my favorite nickname for Billy) first baseball game of the season but lets just say it was a tad bit cold.  Wife of the year goes to Janae for bearing through two games in frigid temperatures....okay, it wasn't that bad but still I am impressed with myself and I only went through one mug of hot chocolate.

IMG 5317

They had two games back to back and they WON BOTH.  Love watching my man and his athletic skills.

IMG 5313

I may have accidently gone tanning (I know, I know Mom.....don't worry it is the first time in 2 years and I won't go again for a long long time) because I heard that Vitamin D is good for bone growth and I think it made my cheeks and face swell up even more than the usual (I have a very funny vlog coming up that involves making my cheeks even bigger while talking about chocolate cake and licking my lips, get excited.......I didn't show to Billy until after I married him and knew he was stuck with me no matter how big of a fool I make of myself).

IMG 5319

Lunch involved my favorite food components (I don't know what my obsession is with animal shaped food items....swedish fish, gold fish, gummy bears, frosted animal crackers and sour patch kids.....oh wait those are children shaped food not animals).

Spinach, broccoli, tuna, salsa, chia seeds and gold fish for crunch.

IMG 5310

IMG 5322

And dinner took me hours of slaving in the kitchen.......grilled pb and banana sandwich and somehow a few chocolate chips fell into them.   We watched the BIGGEST LOSER and one of the contestants went BUNGEE JUMPING AHHHHHHH!!!

So here is my question for you......

Have you or would you ever bungee jump?  What about skydiving?

-I COULD NEVER bungee jump but I have been skydiving in Hawaii and it was absolutely AMAZING and I would do it a million times.  Something about the rope and and bouncing up and down scares me to death.

What is your Friday workout? (I want to live through you....send me some of your sweat and endorphins in a bottle okay:)

-I am going to do strength training, 4 sets of 12 pushups and core work at 6 a.m. because we are leaving at 8 for St. George!!!

Do you have a nickname?  Do you make up nickname's for other people?

-I have a new nickname for Billy almost every day and my nickname in high-school was Nae-Nae.

Everyone knows my nickname

I am racing my first ever half mary this weekend, scared stiff, but I will be ok.... I think

I went skydiving a few years ago and I agree I would do it a million times and recommend that everyone tries it once! I agree though- the idea of bungee jumping freaks me out- what if the cord broke!? (not that jumping out with no cord is much better??)
half marathon tomorrow so its a day off for me...its supposed to be reallllly rainy- help what do i wear!?!

Never on the bungee jumping. I just don't feel the need.
Ne' is my nickname.

I want to go bungee jumping AND sky diving! I am an adrenaline junkie to the max :D

Friday workout was yoga :)

Have a great weekend!

I really have no desire to bungee jump. Unfortunately I had to remove skydiving and snorkling from my bucket list. They dont allow asthmatics and I have already ripped the lining of my lungs once :-(. My friday workout will be legs and cardio. Time to get my squat on! Have a great day.

Today's workout is a strength bootcamp video!
Hope you have an awesome trip!

This post is pretty awesome. I have so many things to comment and I know I'm going to forget something.

1. The picture of you at the baseball game cracks me up!
2. I'm loving your food creativity. I never would have thought to top that with goldfish, but it's genius.
3. I HAVE bungee jumped, but it was in a harness rather than with the ankle straps. It was terrifying, but amazing. I really want to skydive!
4. I'm not sure if I'm going to work out today or take a rest day. I'm thinking I'll run a few because it's not supposed to be good weather this weekend and I REALLY want to run outside.
5. I nickname people all the time. My friend Jackie and I like to make up names for people we don't know, just in case we need to talk about them.

Hope you're having a great friday!

Aww Billy and you are the CUTEST couple!! :)

HAHA I had your dinner for breakfast a few days ago!! And funnily enough a few choccie chips fell in mine too...! :P

Friday workout was a yoga class and recovery run after yesterday running with Paula Radcliffe (sorry, I'm never gonna stop talking about this! :P) because apparently her 'easy' pace is SUB 5 min/miles, and I almost died. Someday you'll take her on and BEAT her though:)

ENJOY your vacation gorgeous!! :)

I have a seriously problem with nicknames. I just make up new ones on the spot and they are beyond ridiculous. My girl cat is called princess princess pants. Yes, 2 princesses. No reason why!
I will not go bungee jumping because I like being alive, thank you very much!

My boyfriend wants me to go skydiving with him but I am still a little too scared I think.

Today I am running a quick 2 miles, going for a swim, and doing Insanity!

i am totally going skydiving in may or june!!! i can not wait! I've been wanting to go forever!!!! i would never go bungee jumping though.... i don't know why but it just scares me. not that jumping out of a plane doesn't scare me...just something about it!

I don't think I could ever go bungee jumping, when I was watching Biggest Loser I was so tense the entire time each of them were jumping! I was freaking out! I'm not good with heights.
My workout tonight will be Run 3-4 miles, Week 1-Day 3 Push up Challenge and 20 min of Ab/strength work. I will be thinking of you while I am running and sending you vibes of goodness!

I could never ever bungee jump or sky dive. I don't like heights anymore.
Your grilled pb and banana sandwich looks so good!!! I'm going to have to try that one day.

Aw, you look so cute at Billy's game! I love going to Eric's baseball games...he doesn't play regularly right now, though.

People have called me Erbear before, and also in high school a lot of people called me Obi (my maiden name was Obermeier).

Friday is my rest day so I will have to live vicariously through everyone with you! I have a sprint tri on Sunday that I am getting ready for, though! I'm excited!

I have been bungee jumping in New Zealand, actually, it was awesome! I have also been sky diving, and I thought the bungee jumping was scarier! I thought that was weird but it sounds like you're also more scared of bungee jumping. And yeah the bouncing did make me feel a little queasy. I went with my sister though and had a death grip on her (and also motivation not to barf on her;). You can see pics here (

Jealous of your girl's weekend. Have fuuuuun!!:)

bungee jump? Sky dive? NO WAY IN HELL!!!!!!

No nickname..workout today? Uh er... I may ride the bike. LOL. I'm just winging it. I know I should do better but I need a few days of WHAT EVER!

At April 15, 2011 at 7:44 AM , Blogger Natalie Cates said...

I would definitely go both skydiving and bungee jumping! I plan on doing both before I'm 30.

I usually train a PT client on Friday mornings, but we were under tornado warnings this morning so she canceled. I am coaching cheerleading clinics this afternoon, so that will involve about two hours of cheering and dancing. Then I'm headed to Memphis to go to a Zumba Fitness Concert - I'm not exactly sure what to expect, but I know we will dance and it will be fun!

Nicknames - YES - love them for everyone. I make up new ones for Daniel, my pets, and my students nearly everyday. My nicknames basically all involve being short/small (peanut, lil bit, dynamite-my fav).

I hope you and your sister have the BEST time together on your trip! Enjoy!

I could never bungee jump...the actual jumping part just wouldn't happen...

I recently discovered a Pinkberry about an hour from where I live and it takes a lot of convincing for me NOT to go there at least once a week :-)

You do win wife of the year! Being cold is the worst. Can't wait to see your vlog!

At April 15, 2011 at 7:59 AM , Blogger Holly said...

I would love to say I'd go sky diving but I'd probably chicken out at the last minute.

Today I am doing speed work on the treadmill and then probably some elipticalling or stairmaster (they took away the arc trainers from my gym :( )

I would NEVER Bungee Jump but I would skydive! Is that weird...?

I have been MIA in my spin classes for almost a year now, but I think I might hit one up tonight because of you! :)

I have a couple nicknames: Crash, Ice Tea(one of the guys who works here is slightly disabled and can't say my name right, so it comes out as Ice Tea!), Hollywood (haha). I give people nicknames allll the time, so fun :D

PS Where is that bag from in the picture of you at the game? I like it!! Congrats to Billy on the wins!

I have quite a few "nicknames" for Josh lol... none of them really make any sense... chickenbutt is one of them... he loves it ;)

I'm with you. I would sky dive in a heartbeat, but bungee jumping frightens me.
Probably not working out today because I have been sick all week :( I hate it.
My husband calls me bird. That's my only nickname.
Have a good time in St. George!

I would loveee to go bungee jumping but I have two fears - that it will hurt my ankles and that the cord will be too long (guess it wouldn't hurt my ankles then!)
My Friday workout was 6 miles broken down to 3, 2, and 1 between core circuit sets!!

At April 15, 2011 at 8:12 AM , Blogger Tara said...

I went skydiving on my 18th birthday!! LOVED IT and would do it again in a heartbeat!! (Tell Billy to come to law school in Texas and we can go together!!)

My nickname in college was any one of the following: Tara Pants, T-Pants, TP, Pants. One day one of my friends called me Tara Pants randomly and it stuck!

At April 15, 2011 at 8:20 AM , Blogger Kiley said...

I don't think I would ever go bungee jumping or sky diving. I'm pretty much a pansey.

My workout today is PUSH-UPS! I'm doing my initial test & my first workout today. I'm gonna post about it before noon, you should check it out!!

I love nicknames...the weirder the better!

At April 15, 2011 at 8:31 AM , Blogger Britt Burns Kelly said...

Nicknames are better then real names. I have one for nearly every person in my life. I think that they make people feel special and a sense of closeness with those who use the nicknames, that is as long as they are nice ones!

I like to go by B. Weird? Yes. But I like it.

I have the same fear as far as bungee jumping! But I have plans to go skydiving in Chicago this summer!

Ok so when you come out to NY to run the marathon you have to go to 16 handles. Hands down best frozen yogurt place ever! Have a blast in St. George, so beautiful and warm down there :)

Ah, I wish I had a Yogurtland closer to me! In NYC we have an equivalent, 16 Handles, but it's not the same :( I've never thought to put goldfish on a salad but that's a great idea...yum :)

I would totally go bungee jumping and skydiving. They both seem like so much fun!!

I will be doing a couple miles later today. Nothing too exciting.

My nicknames are Mal, Mals, Mallsy, and Malibu.

I would never, ever bungee jump! Can't imagine just jumping off a bridge to some pile of rocks. Skydiving however seems so freeing and liberating! That must have been cool to skydive in somewhere beautiful like Hawaii.

My workout = taking a long walk through the city (NYC) it has the best people watching ever. Plus there are yogurt land type places on every corner so I always take food breaks. Does this even count as a work out? Haha.

I love goldfish!!!

I'm with you, bungee jumping kind of scares me, but I would looooooove to go sky-diving! I really want to go zip-lining in a rain forest, too.

No nicknames for me. My dog gets a ton of them, though :)

I still don't know what to do to workout today! I might run a tiny bit if the storms hold off. If not, maybe a little living room power yoga!

At April 15, 2011 at 9:59 AM , Blogger Rachelle Wardle said...

Have so much fun in St. George girl! Drive safely and enjoy the time to relax. Shopping, eating out, eating junk food, and watching trashy tv shows=perfect!

I honestly don't think most of my family knows my real name. They all call me Shelley, and my friends call me shell.

I ran 6 miles and ellipticized for 20 minutes. Cannot believe I faced the elliptical. Work your butt off for 20 minutes and barely burn 100 calories. lame, lame, lame I tell you.

Have a fabulous day!!!

Everyone needs to bungee jump at least once in their life. I am also beginning to think that everyone must make a grilled pb banana sandwich at some point in their life, too. That looks like heaven placed in a food item. Do you think swedish fish would be good in there, too?

At April 15, 2011 at 10:07 AM , Blogger Allyssa said...

Don't hate me, but I did a 7 mile run this morning. It was awesome. Mostly because it was my first time out with the new Bob jogging stroller I bought last night and I loved it! I only have 4 weeks left until a 100 mile relay (we have a 6 person team) so I need to start increasing my mileage a little bit (my doctor wanted me to take a 3 week break from running due to a problem with my adrenal gland-not gonna happen right now).

I've never bungee jumped! I'd love to though! I've skydived and can't wait to do it again. I'm thinking today I'm just going to do a full body heavy weight circuit and some spinning. Have fun in St. George!! I love it there :)

I have to agree with your mom- no more tanning! Runners are already prone to skin cancer.

I have the exact same thoughts on bungee jumping vs. sky diving. Bungee jumping just seems really uncomfortable.

I've never been bungee jumping, but I've done skydiving! It was quite a rush, and honestly, it was the stupidest choice I ever made (it's SO dangerous!) But it's fun to say I tried!

My Friday workout ended up being super tough because I was running on 4 hours of sleep (and knew I would be up for the next 22 hours). But I did a hard cross training day!

I LOVE nicknames. I don't think I've ever called my husband Tom. (HA!)

I don't think I could bungee jump, nor skydive again! Every time I hear "It is now safe to use your electronic devices" I think, this is how high up I was and I want to poop my pants a little!

My nickname in college on and off was Sars. It started before SARS was a disease, but then it turned into a joke again because I was out sick. I'm sure I had all sorts of charming nicknames behind my back, but who cares.

No bungee jumping! I hate that feeling in your stomach when you go down on a roller coaster and I assume bungee jumping would be that on crack. Also, how do they get you down once you finish your jump.

on friday i went to bikram. i'm getting pretty obsessed with it but its sooo expensive that i don't know how long i can keep going every day.

that's awesome that your nickname in high school way college i nicknamed one of my roommates (shannon) nay-nay! :)

i have about a dozen nicknames, including "moo" which my sister still insists upon using in front of people we don't know. a little embarrassing. i love nicknames and give my bf a new one just about every week.
