Man Pretty

Behold the one-sided conversation that took place over dinner last night.
I'm sorry to say this is 100% real and just a small glimpse into the daily joy of living with my husband.

Back story, you may or may not know that my husband is extremely, a tad eccentric from time to time, and he had a rough day at work, so I let this conversation unfold without giving him too much shit.

Bayou: "TBag, grab a pen and paper so we can take dictation of what I'm about to tell you. It's important."

Me: "How about I just memorize it, I'm good at that."

Bayou: "Fine, but don't get sad when you can't remember it all."

Me: "I will try." *while stifling laughter*

Bayou: "We are going to be counting all the ways I'm pretty .....Man pretty."

So Pretty.

Sweat @ Home: (Wo)Man up to the Pull-Up Bar

Whaddup fellow workout buffs?!

I made you another video.  It's pretty.

I have an issue with the stigma that ladies can't do any and all workouts that men can do.
So to prove it, I have made you a video to walk through how to get started at home, in privacy.
So while you are grunting and struggling, no one has to know about it.

We survived. We made it home.

Miami rocked my top off. (It actually did, and I'll get to that later).
