My favorite place on Earth…

Sanford Stadium is by far my favorite place on Earth.  I’ve traveled abroad, seen beautiful places, but Sanford Stadium is MY favorite place to be.  Matt and I, along with another couple, went to Athens Saturday to watch the Dawgs play Kentucky.  The only bad part = 7 pm game combined with cold temperatures.  I love night games…but not November night games.  The weather during the day was perfect.  Not too cold, not too hot.  We had a great time.  And of course, the Dawgs won.  Unfortunately, that sweet, good-looking Aaron Murray wasn’t able to finish his last home game as a UGA football player.  Actually, he wasn’t able to finish his last game of his college career at all due to tearing his ACL.  In any event…

Yeah, it was COLD.

The couple with us got engaged last week…YAY! (I definitely told them “may God be with you” 🙂

Where is YOUR favorite place on Earth??  What makes it awesome??

The next day, Matt and I had lunch, went grocery shopping, and then I had a spin class to teach.  Here is the playlist I used:

photo 2 (2) photo 1 (2)Yes, as you can see, I do love Miley’s new album.  Despite what the critics say, I think this girl is a genius.  Yes, she needs to class it up a bit.  But as an artist, she has made some bold but beneficial decisions.  I mean, think about it, we are all still talking about what a tragic mess she is, right?!  My point exactly.  PS. Watch The Miley Movement if you haven’t already.  Might change your mind 🙂

I’ll be teaching a Ripped Ride class tonight, so I will have another playlist for you tomorrow with some new songs I am trying out.  I know we all have a busy week ahead of us with Thanksgiving in just a few days.  I’m looking forward to a lot of things later this week…lots of food and family time Wednesday & Thursday, Van Gogh & Vino session with my cousin Friday night (she convinced me that they CAN teach me how to paint), and our first annual Friendsgiving with Presley on Saturday.  This event also requires me to make a few dishes for our dinner–can I just bring the booze?!  🙂

Quick Weekend Recap

Long time, no chat!  I have been crazy busy lately–more so than usual–especially at work.  So here is a quick recap of what we did this weekend…

Friday night, I attended a friend’s rehearsal dinner.  My friend Nicole (left) was a bridesmaid in the wedding and she asked me to be her date.

Delicious shrimp & grits for dinner.

Y’all know how awkward I feel taking pictures of my food.  Well, this plate sure looked pretty.  And I had 3 glasses of wine by this point…YOLO.

Saturday, Matt and I headed to Clemson, along with Matt’s buddy Chunky, for some tailgating and ticket-finding.  Thankfully we didn’t buy any tickets. They were super pricey and Clemson got clobbered.  We had an awesome time though.  It was actually a really bad Saturday for college football–Georgia, Clemson, and South Carolina all lost…although, I’m not all that upset about Carolina’s loss…

photo 2 photo 3Like I said, so much fun.  We met up with some old buddies from high school that don’t live nearby anymore.  I’ve known most of these guys since elementary school.  It was nice to catch up.  And yes, I was the only girl around.  Good thing I’m like one of the guys.

Sunday, I headed to my friend’s church to help set up for a fall festival they were hosting.

photo 1Then I headed over to the gym for the 90 minute spin class we were having with proceeds benefiting a local charity. THEN, it was off to dance practice.  I didn’t get a chance to slow down at all this weekend, so last night, I kept it low key.  My body was in pain from 90 minutes of spinning AND an hour of dance practice. So I opted to stay in and try to transition my summer wardrobe to the attic and get my fall apparel put in the closet.  I’m half way there. Matt and I also went Halloween costume shopping and had some fun poking at inappropriate costumes.  Yes we wait until the last minute.  Oh, by the way, am I the ONLY chick that doesn’t believe in dressing like a complete hooch for Halloween? Geez, we aren’t in college anymore.  Cover.  It.  Up.

Okay…I’m off to a Chamber lunch now.  I hope y’all are having a good week!!

Fun Facts Friday!!

For whatever reason, I woke up on the exceptionally happy side of the bed this morning, despite having to get up at 5:00 am for a Chamber breakfast.  Maybe if I treated working out in the mornings as seriously as my job, I would actually do it more often.

After our last gym staff meeting, our manager sent out a questionnaire that he asked us to answer and return to him.  I assume this info will be used on the gym’s website but I’m not quite sure yet.  Heck, he may have just wanted to know more about us 🙂  I thought I would share the questionnaire with you and the answers I provided…

Questions:
Who are you?
My name is Logan.  I’m 25 years old and currently reside in North Augusta, SC with my husband Matt.  I work in the marketing department of a bank, where I have been employed for 5 years, and my husband works at Cintas.  We have no children but we do have 2 cats, Smokey and Cali (crazy cat lady at your service).

What do you do outside of Oxygen?
Besides my full-time marketing job, I also sell Mary Kay and I’m an amateur blogger.  I’m an Ambassador with the Greater Aiken Chamber of Commerce and I’m a member of the Aiken Young Professionals group.  I love UGA football and driving my Clemson-loving husband crazy.  My favorite way to spend my time is with family…period.  No matter what we’re doing, it’s always a good time.

3 adjectives that describe you?
Witty, personable, and hard-headed–I choose not to use the term “stubborn” because it sounds negative 🙂
 What’s your favorite thing about Oxygen?
My favorite thing about Oxygen is how I have watched the gym grow over the past few years.  I also love that the gym is a studio and not a big-box gym.  We are a big family–instructors and clients alike!
If you were the star of a TV show, what would be your theme song?
I can’t help but freak out every time I hear the song Applause by Lady Gaga…but if I were a wrestler (not a TV star) and I could have my own “coming out” music, it would be The Next Episode by Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg.
Guilty Pleasure?
Definitely eating Mexican and drinking beer.  And I tend to stay up for hours watching Vine videos.

Favorite piece of Oxygen retail? 
Definitely my over-sized white long-sleeve top by Alo…and the sparkly headbands are the bomb.com.
Who is your celebrity crush?
Bradley Cooper.  And Matt Lauer.  I can’t choose just one.

What is at the top of your bucket list?
Seeing the Northern Lights, meeting Matt Lauer, and seeing Lady Gaga and Adele in concert (just not at the same time)
What is in your gym bag?
Spin shoes, gum, chap stick, $2, and socks
Favorite move/pose in class?
My favorite thing to do on the bike is take the body back and low and hover over the saddle.  I take any chance I have to work on the booty!  In hot yoga, I love the Warrior II pose and trying to do the Tree poses.

Why don’t you take a stab at a few of these questions?  I would love to learn more about YOU!
Have a great Friday!
