Miscellany Monday

Happy Monday y'all!

I don't know about y'all, but I'm so glad the weekend is over and it's finally Monday! Hey. Give me a break. I worked all weekend doing the Army thing :)

I'm writing random today so if you want to play along, link up HERE.

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

{PT test}

Well, I had my Army PT test on Saturday and.................I passed!! I did 32 push-ups, 67 sit-ups, and ran my two mile in 18 minutes and 56 seconds. This isn't anywhere near as good as I have done, but I was very in shape from basic training back then :) I'm just very excited that I passed!


 And..............I got promoted! I'm really excited to see my hard work pay off. My new rank is Specialist :)

Let me preface this by saying I am not a coffee drinker. It's really just not my thing. But when I wake up at 4:30 in the morning to go to battle assembly and do PT, I make exceptions. When we got released from PT, I went to the gas station to get some caffeine before the next formation. And that's when I met Bean Street Coffee. It was so good I called it my "cup of heaven"! Hazelnut coffee with french vanilla creamer and sugar...delish!

{my faves}

I'm super excited that Blake Shelton's and Miranda Lambert's wedding has finally been published in Us Weekly! I'm definitely going to need to own this edition. I just love them both :)


My sister and I watched Titanic the other day, and I cried my eyes out! I mean, I keep thinking that one day I will watch it and not cry because I've seen it before and know what happens. But that day was not Friday.

Well that was pretty random :)

I hope everyone has a marvelous Monday and a great start to the week!


  1. wow, now that is a challenge, I would be luckt if I could do that over the course of the day!!

    Good for you!!

  2. CONGRATS on your PT test AND your promotion! :) Such happy news. Wow, that coffee sounds delish. I love hazelnut with vanilla (or mocha!). So I really liked their wedding stuff. Someone online was ragging on them about him being in jeans and that truck, etc, but I think it's the perfect shabby-chic-country setting!

  3. Congrats on the promotion! I love coffee! Sheetz is my favorite though. :) Yes, Titanic is a tear-jerker for sure. 2 miles in 18:56?!! Holy cow girlfriend! I'd be on pace for 1 mile at that, not 2. Sheesh. No wonder you're glad it's Monday! You need a break from your weekend for sure!

  4. congrats on your promotion!!!

  5. Congratulations on your promotion! The issue of Us weekly is great, their wedding looked like so much fun! Love them too:)

  7. super sweet and very cute blog!

  9. Congratulations on passing your PT test and your promotion!!! Awesome!!!!!

    I always cry when I watch Titanic...can't help myself. Same thing with Steel Magnolias, I still cry a river every single time, esp during the funeral scene.

  10. Did you see Miranda's broach bpuquet?! I lovvvvvee it!!

  11. Congratulations on passing and getting promoted! It's pretty impressive! :-)
