I've been following softspoken on her blog for awhile now. I love looking at her outfits for inspiration. Plus, her craftiness with a crochet needle is pretty impressive too. Oh! How lovely! has featured softspoken on her blog for a giveaway, so hop on over for a chance to win silly!
ALSO...I have been kicking my own personal physical fitness into high gear lately. I did my first Hip Hop Hustle class at my local rec center on Wednesday and oh man it was so fun! If you ladies have something like it available wherever you are, I highly recommend it. Especially if you have a hard time committing to working out. Its a lot of fun, almost like a dance class. So, I was quite excited to see this fitness inspired Yoplait giveaway at Monkey Giggles. Check it out for a chance to win.
My daughter, Carmen and I are going to our first hockey game this Saturday! The Norfolk Admirals are our local minor professional hockey team here in Hampton Roads. The game this Saturday helps raise money for Cystic Fibrosis. So, if you are in the area you should come and support both the Admirals and research for Cystic Fibrosis. I hope everyone has fun with whatever they have planned this weekend :)

From him, he got me my favorite food combination of fruit and chocolate from Edible Arrangements. They make crazy amazing fruit arrangements but I usually just request the assortment of fruit dipped in the yummiest dark chocolate. Pictured here are chocolate dipped strawberries, green apples, and orange slices. Uhhhh...apples are my most favorite in the world. I love them with cheese, but chocolate is definitely the champ. A box of fresh fruit dipped in chocolate beats those run of the mill candy-heart boxes and day. Plus its more nutritious for you! So you can eat the whole box and not feel as bad :P
I got a wonderful bouquet of Tulips (also my fave) and two new DS games for my newly inherited DS, Animal Crossing & Crosswords (I love Crossword puzzles). Its inherited because it used to belong to the boyfriend but I started playing it while he would play his PS3. I realize him "giving" me his DS out of thoughtfulness was all a ruse so he didn't feel guilty while he played his PS3 for hours...boys :P

I was a little worried about dinner because we called 2 weeks in advance and we were told the only reservations left open were for 3pm. And there was no way I was eating that early. So, we decided to just get there before the dinner rush and wait until something opened up. Ironically, we ended up leaving for dinner around 3pm anyway. Once we got there it was a 2.5 hour wait?! But thank goodness the manager was at the hostess station and he informed us that the bar was open for seating and he personally escorted us over to a nice, uncrowded section of the bar. I tried to convince my boyfriend that the manager was so helpful because he (my boyfriend) listened to me and wore a tie. People seem more important if you dress important. Hey, I don't make up the rules, I just follow them.
I'll post about our gifts later in the week...didn't want to make this post too
