Times are A-Changin'

Yes, things are changing. But first I have some catching up to do. :) Oh! And don't forget to enter my giveaway to jazz up your sneaks while you're here! You've got until Thursday at noon!

Peanut Butter and Jenny

Day 7: If I had to pick a time period to live in, I think I would be confused. This is a question that comes up often and I never really have an answer to it! Paul and I watched Midnight to Paris a few months ago, and all that resulted was confusion from this question. I've always liked the 20s! I think it would be fun for a little while, at least.

However, one thing does not confuse me (or Paul) about this question.

If we were alive and thriving during this time, we would be big fans. Mom, you would be proud.

Day 8: Holy Moses, my life in five years. That's a big question. Well, I'm 21 now so that would lead me to 26. It doesn't really seem far in the grand scheme of life but in that time I'll need to figure out what I'm doing!

Hopefully by then I'll be out of school. Perhaps with a Master's. Doing my dream job. Working with dancers. Maybe little kid dancers. Personal training, teaching, making a name for myself. You know, that sort of thing. I'm still pretty optimistic about all of that. One thing's for sure, I'd like to be making "grown up" friends at this point. You know. Not school friends. If that makes sense. Don't I sound like a youngster?

This is generally how I envision my life. (source)

Day 9: My food philosophy! I can do that one!  Basically, I like to follow the mindset of do what makes you happy. And I don't mean everybody should use that and say "if I eat fast food everyday, I'll be happy because it tastes good."


No. You know what my philosophy is? OOH. Breakthrough. My food philosophy is exploration. I used to live a lifestyle where I was gogogo (used to? I'm still like that) and my food very much resembled that. I didn't eat breakfast. My dinners consisted of an Applebee's salad/Pizza Hut/anything close to the school so I could get back in time for my activities/dance/this that or the other thing. I survived and I was happy. But I didn't know what else there was out there for me!!

Now that I've explored a bit more, I know what makes me not cranky. I know what makes me feel like I can take on the world. I still don't know everything, so it's a constant journey to find what makes me happy.

But yeah. I like that. My food philosophy = exploration.

Day 10: Woohoo! We've reached today! You want to know about somebody who inspires me? Jeez. I try my hardest to find inspiration everywhere. And a bunch of things inspire me in different ways.

My dance team inspires me to push myself, work to be a better leader, and keep things fun and interesting. The FitFluential community inspires me to become a better blogger and businesswoman. They inspire me to go after what I want and take no prisoners. My family inspires me to make a good name for myself so I have good stories at parties about what I'm becoming. My boyfriend inspires me to look at myself, challenge my opinions, and create a better person on a daily basis.

I'm getting sappy. So look at some pictures. :)

After our '12 show. :)

That's me and my sister. Cheesin'.

Paul doesn't like this picture. But I think it's awesome.

So now I'm caught up! YES! I'm going to be playing a bit of catch-up with this challenge always, I feel. And I acknowledge that. But I want to complete it all. Wha-bam. Here I come. :)

If you've made it this far, I've got a question for you. I'm looking at making my blog more professional, more awesome, etc. I'm looking to self host but I am lost. And I'm wondering if any of you fabulous bloggers have any resources for me to take a look at?

I'm calling on YOU for help!

What are your suggestions for taking a blog to the next level?


  1. Self-hosting is really important (in my humble opinion). It gives you so much more control over what your site looks like and whether you want to advertise or not.

    I switched from Wordpress.com to self-hosted in April and am thrilled with the result!

  2. Going to Wordpress - I'm in love with it!
