Ketchup Day

So funny. So I just now came across a July blog challenge. Five days into July. It's from Peanut Butter and Jenny and I think it would be a good thing for this blog. I'm trying to grow and develop into an awesome blogger. And sometimes that requires blogging, don't you think? So hopefully this will at least get me into a posting habit.

And so, while an Excel sheet of database work calls from my internship, I will take a brief interlude and catch up with this challenge. This is going to be quick and dirty. But I'll take more time the rest of the month, I promise. :)

Day #1: My goals for the month! That's exciting! I have already started breaking out of my shell by vlogging, but I'd like to do it at least once a week for this month. Hopefully I can start to expand to more, but you have to start somewhere.

I would also like to break out by taking some fitness classes in Philadelphia! I've already purchased a Groupon, so I definitely cannot let that go to waste. I get clammy hands when I think of putting myself out there, which doesn't make any sense. But I'm going to demolish that.

Basically, July is all about becoming who I want me to be. I'm trying to be the perfect FitFluential/Sweat Pink/healthy and happy life ambassador, for example. I just gotta do what I love and share what I love and I'll be fine. Right? Right.

Day #2: Offering a newborn child advice freaks me out, frankly. I know that's supposed to be a sweet sentiment and all that. But eek. I am so not there yet. But if I were to offer some advice it would be this:  

Go ahead and make your mistakes. Don't dwell on them because they will have already happened. They make up who you are and people will still love that person. So go on and mess up. And then learn from it and laugh about it, otherwise it will have been for nothing.

So wise, so sage. ;)

Day #3: The last movie I saw in theaters. Oh! I went to the drive-in by my house and saw The Avengers. It was lovely to listen to the night and a movie at the same time. I love the drive-in. You should go.

Watch them Avenge.

Day #4: If I could rid the world of one thing what would it be? Oh boy, this is a crazy thought. I finally rid my apartment of fruit flies, so it would be awesome if they never came back...

Okay, okay. I know this is a lofty goal. But I would get rid of RUDE PEOPLE. I don't care if you're assertive. Even aggressive if you approach it in the right manner. I don't mind if you're having a bad day and you're being short. Heck, you can be Negative Nancy all day and I would still put up with you.


Maybe it's just because I had an awful evening at work last night, but people are just terrible to workers. I work at Rita's, ma'am and sir. I am not your slave. You cannot summon me with your finger. You cannot speak to me like I am not capable of conversing. Do not EVER look at my tip jar and pointedly not tip me because you are rude. 

I hate people sometimes. 

Rant over.

And finally, I'm caught up!! Day #5: The day is still young, so I'm not sure what exactly is going to make my day special. Oh wait. No, I do know. But you're going to laugh at me. 

Thank you, Trader Joe's.

So sue me. My dinner is already making me happy at lunch time. 

Are you going to participate in the challenge? Have you started already? What has made your day so far? Oh, so many questions!


  1. Love this idea! I'm going to take the challenge, too! :)

    And I would be so happy in a world without rude people. And fruit flies. Yuck!

  2. Such a cute idea! And it's always a good day when dinner is planned ahead! :)

  3. I hadn't seen this challenge. I love me some PB&Jenny! I've been reading her blog for a couple years now and she's so inspiring.

    Umm don't be apologizing for thinking about dinner at lunch. I think about dinner at lunch ALL THE TIME. At breakfast too. And at dinner the day before. Hahaha.

  4. I love it - I totally printed out the blog challenge to incorporate it somehow in my blog! Love what you got so far!!

  5. Great challenge! I love the drive-in and haven't been in far too long.

    Also, I totally start thinking about my next meal the second I've finished one - no shame!!

  6. I can't stand rude people, either, girl!

    The last movie I saw in theaters was Magic Mike. HELLO. (Drooooool.) I need to participate in this challenge...such a great idea!

  7. Still haven't seen the Avengers - must must!
