Whaaats that show….oh yeahh NEW GIRL!

11 Aug

Sooo for those of you that are in dire need of a good laugh and a solution to your boredem….then watch NEW GIRL! I would advise you to start from the beginning though. My friends first introduced me to the show with a random episode, which did not satisfy me nor serve the justice for just how amazing this show is.

Here is a description straight from the FOX website:

“A new comedy series from executive producer and writer Liz Meriwether (“No Strings Attached”), NEW GIRL features a young ensemble cast that takes a fresh look at modern relationships.

After a bad break-up, JESS DAY (Zooey Deschanel) needs a new place to live. An online search leads her to a great loft…and three single guys she’s never met before. But Jess moves in, and through her unique sense of self and the support of her new roommates, she learns to move on.

Of her three new male roommates, NICK (Jake Johnson) is the most grounded…and also the most jaded. A law school dropout, he spends most of his time hiding under his hoodie and tending bar”.

The star of the show is Jess played by Zooey Deschanel(Who I absolutely ADORE)!

One of the things that draws me to a show is if I can learn something from it, and apply it to my own life. Jess is a character I have been able to relate to on a personal level. She has almost an identical personality to mine…which I have hated more than envied over the years. I would describe our personality as awkward, funny, spunky, different, nerdy, inexperienced, not street smart and fun hehe! Watching the show has allowed me to see that I need to embrace every aspect of myself. As I get older, I am beginning to realize that being 100% comfortable with yourself is one of the most attractive qualities out there. Any who this is just a little revelation that I have had with myself at the moment and I felt like sharing(:

Zooey Deschanels fashion has also been inspiring me lately!

Spreading a little of our inspiration..

11 Aug

When you start to change for a better you, some will begin to resent you because they lack the motivation and sacrifice it takes. Keep the faith. Change is mental, physical, and spiritual. Present to them your fortitude in all three, then thank them for the fuel of doubt.

The majority of whats stopping you from achieving what you want is mental! Your head has the brain. Tell your brain to tell your body to don’t quit, don’t relinquish, don’t break! It has no other option, none, but to follow!!!

Stay Motivated Guys!!! ūüôā

It’s been a Hell of a week!

25 Jul

Man guys, we have had quite the week. There was a crazy hobo man who tried to jump into our car, the Aurora Shooting, Fitness On the Rocks, and a ridiculous car accident. Wheww!!! Too much for one week.

So first up…let us tell you about that crazy hobo who tried to crawl into our car. Whit and I arrived to our fitness in the city workout about 20 minutes early, and decided to roll down the windows and listen to music for a lil’ bit. All was good for about two minutes when I noticed a cracked out man carrying a bunch of CD’s slowly approaching our car. With that said, I did not hesitate to tell Whit to roll up the windows…BUT did she listen to me??? Nahhh. It did not take long before this guys head was all the way in the passenger seat window and about 2 inches away from my face. Instantly my heart started pounding. After attempting to sell us his CD’s and making very vulgar comments Whit finally stepped in and said something along the lines of, “Get your head out of my car before I roll it up in the window”! Carrying a purse, he still tried to get money from us, but luckily we were just across the street from class and were able to get ourselves out of that scary situation before feeling completely defenseless.

As if Colorado has not suffered enough this Summer with the whole state¬†practically¬†being on fire, there is also the horrible Century 16 shooting that¬†occurred the other night in our hometown, Aurora. That night is¬†absolutely insane how things turned out for us. So we had worked a long 10 hour day on Thursday, and Whit had to rush from work to an interview, that she totally rocked. From there, we headed to a free personal training session that we had at Orange Theory Fitness (More details about this awesome place to come in another post). When we got out of our workout, which was around 8:30, we contemplated whether or not to go see the Dark Night Rises for the opening night showing. Keep in mind, we open every Friday morning, meaning we have to be at work at 4 AM! ¬†So Court said “This would be an unforgettable night Whit, we can always remember when we are older that we stayed out all night, saw the opening night of an incredible movie, and then went straight to work with no sleep!” Going through my head was I don’t know about that, I have stayed up all night with no sleep and worked a 16 hour day….NOT FUN AT ALL. So I said to Court well it could be fun, we can call around and see what theater is not sold out yet and go. Well we get home, start feeling our soreness and exhaustion, then both decided we should be responsible adults and just go to bed and get our sleep for work. Turns out, the only¬†theater¬†not sold out of tickets was Century 16, and we could have gone and been a part of that horrible¬†tragedy. Century 16 is a theater very close to our house, and Court and I have been there quite a few times this past year. It is very scary to think we could have been there, or even been one of the twelve who did not make it. In the end, ¬†we are very very blessed, and thank god every day that us and our family are safe. At the same time, have the biggest heart aches for all the victims and their families, they have and will continue to be in our prayers.

Fitness on the Rocks at Red Rocks was Phenomenal! We signed up for Turbo Kick with Jennifer Driscoll, and Ultimate Boot camp. It was a hot one on Saturday, about a little over a 100 degrees, but Court and I still looked cute. We were rocking some blinging Pink Sparkly head bands and our Fitness on the Rocks Tanks. We woke up early, packed gallons of water, bars, and apples, and then headed up there. It is a really awesome free event, and there were many companies with tents set up, where we received all kinds of goodies. Both workouts were so much fun, and we even ran into a bunch of our fitness buddies there.

The ride home is where the car accident occurred. Since it costed about $9 to take the freeway to Red Rocks then¬†we decided the last minute to take all the back roads home. BAADDDDD IDEA!! Our directions ended up taking us through the worlds worst most ghetto neighborhood. We were driving on through this neighborhood for about 15 minutes when we approached a four-way stop. It was our turn to go.¬†When we start rolling on through….¬†all of a sudden this Subaru flies through and smashes into us. ūüė¶ SOOO we all pull over and get out of the car. This man was Asian and did not speak a word of english….Talk about bad luck! We had no idea how to communicate to him that¬†this is your fault sir and end up¬†¬†calling the cops. A¬†whole 45 mins later they finally showed up! The officer wanted to hear what happened.¬†We both¬†tell him our side of the story, but when the office goes to talk to the Asian man he could not understand a word either.¬†With no witnesses and¬†even though it was his fault, the officer gave both parties no ticket and labeled it as a “No Fault” accident. OHHHH we are pissed about that. So now we have to see what our insurance will cover, or just fix the car ourselves.

Here were some thoughts running through our heads in facebook form on the day of the accident:

BAHHHHH….like we said it has been a HELL of a WEEK!

Cheers!…To hopefully a better week ahead.

XOXO- Court and Whit ‚̧
