Five Things, Hump Day Edition.

by Katelyn Block on January 9, 2013 · 24 comments

So, let’s talk about my day. Best day EVER.

Can you deal with that positivity? I can deal with that positivity. I’m down widdit.

First thing. Power drills. Turns out I know how to use them.

Oh yes, I’m fancy like that. I put that shelf up all by myself, and I’m pretty sure I scared my Dad over the phone too.

“How did it go?”
“You didn’t hurt yourself?”

You know it’s a good day when (….)

Second thing. Salads. One a day keeps the doctor away.

I’m not talking apples, I’m talking veggies. Fiber and nutritious goodness, ya hear? Don’t try and convince me otherwise. Veggies. Fiber. Olive oil. Balsamic vinegar. You can’t go wrong.

Third thing. Coffee shops. Awesome. For getting things done and for getting free lattes.

Mhmm, you heard me right. FREE. Perks of being a Starbucks Gold Card member = stars and free drinks. Thank you very much.

I got a sugar-free mocha latte with whole milk. Who does skim? I don’t do skim. Not unless I have dinner in an hour, then I do skim. Fat is friend, definitely food. (name that movie)

Fourth thing. My new bedroom. This is what it looked like after a flood that happened. Yes, a flood! I am so blessed that the least of my worries is that, under this roof that I have, water sometimes comes through the paneling and the windows but I mean. It could be worse.

Half of my living room was soaked with water as well as half of my bed. I mean. You know. That stuff happens sometimes. I guess.

I let my blankets and sheets dry and moved on. These blankets helped me out for a few days. Do you like the flower pattern? Yeah? This blanket also says ROWING on the corner with two oars. I do miss my rowing days, but just a little.

So that is what my bed area KIND of looks like. Just now it’s less colorful. Please not all of the technology in one place. That’s my nighttime set-up. Nerdy or exciting? You be the judge.

Fifth thing. Chocolate. Eat it. I find that a square (or a lot) of chocolate a day keeps the doctor and the blues away. Would you agree? I so agree.

In other news… CONGRATS to Boeheim and the boys for another great game!!! Let’s hope this win continues to Saturday’s NOVA game. I’m excited.

Give me five things! Or one thing. Let’s chat.
Are you a chocolatier? A latte-lover?
Tell me about your favorite blanket! (serious)

I love that YOU are taking positivity by the reigns! Thank you for introducing me to Brave Girls Club – I’ve never seen it before!


Paige @ Your Trainer Paige January 10, 2013 at 11:16 AM

Ha! That’s so funny you mention the power drill thing, because I have a shelf that needs to be hung above my toilet upstairs that’s just been sitting there…because I’m afraid I’ll mess it up if I try to hang it. Come over and put it up for me?? ;-)


Katelyn Block January 11, 2013 at 2:43 PM

Oh gurl I am just the handy dandy expert now! Of COURSE ;)


Joy January 10, 2013 at 2:39 PM

My one thing:
The instructor came up to me during class and told me that I looked so strong! The smile has NOT left my face!

My favorite blanket is my flannel sheet set its the best part of bed


Katelyn Block January 11, 2013 at 2:44 PM

That’s. AWESOME. I love that feeling. Keep that smile going!! I swear it’s contagious :) I heart flannel. Especially flannel pajamas!

Katie @ Talk Less, Say More January 10, 2013 at 8:31 PM

Okay, I must admit I’m LOVING your nail polish and all your rings. I don’t often wear jewelry but I do wear rings. Where’d you get yours?

Second, chocolate & coffee are two of my favorite things. Life is good.


Jen Caccamo January 13, 2013 at 10:47 PM

Great post! Love the watch you are wearing in the one pic. What kind is it?


Katelyn Block January 14, 2013 at 9:27 AM
