Forgiveness Includes Puppy Kisses

Excellent news! Phoebe and I made up. I did not go into details yesterday, I just said that she misbehaved. Believe me, she really did some bad things. Let’s just say my apartment did not smell so great!

She did get penned up, and of course I felt extremely guilty, but had to stay strong! She is still a puppy after all, and puppies have to learn right from wrong. I had a stern face when she saw me, but the second I turned the corner I teared up. But don’t let her know that, K?

All is good now. I can’t stay mad at that cute little face!

My gym workout today was cardio and arms. Usually Wednesday’s is my spin class day, but my bum was hurting and I wasn’t sure I could sit on that seat for an hour!

So while I’m lifting away, what do I listen to in the gym? Really it’s a mixed bag. Not all of it is “pump you up” songs. Here’s a quick list of some songs on my gym playlist right now:

  1. Muse- Guiding Light, Madness, Survival
  2. Jason Mraz- The Woman I Love, If it Kills Me (Casanova Sessions)
  3. P!NK- How Come You’re Not Here, Try, Here Comes the Weekend (really this whole new album is amazing)
  4. Carrie Underwood- Two Black Cadillacs, Cowboy Casanova
  5. LMFAO- Sexy and I Know it (of course!)
  6. Train- 50 Ways to Say Goodbye
  7. Justin Bieber- Beauty and a Beat (hey I like it!)
  8. Adele- Rumor Has It
  9. Christina Aguilera and Blake Shelton- Just a Fool (download this NOW)
  10. The Beatles- Let it Be
  11. Elvis songs… because duh I love him
  12. Matchbox 20- She’s So Mean
  13. Scotty McCreery- Please Remember Me (Great Tim McGraw remake)

Really it’s a huge playlist, but that’s just a taste for those that wonder what’s inside those headphones!

G-Mama was oh so kind to make me a DELICIOUS countertop salad to take with me. It was beautiful too!

We leave salads on the countertops sometimes and eat them at room temp instead of chilled... Countertop salad born!
