Keepin' It Real

I had big plans of Friday letters today.
And then, my blonde hair happened.

This picture has nothing to do with this blog post...but you gotta have pics, so here you go!

And since I like to keep it real 'round these parts, I'm gonna share.
Cause I'm an idiot.
And we could all use a good laugh so feel free to laugh at me.

So you see what happened was.....

I got an email this morning.
I was half asleep and it said "Congratulations, you won the Feb giveaway!"
So of course I did a  fist pump and texted everyone I knew.
Holla! I won lots of free crap, happy freaking friday.
I was already spending the giftcards in my head.

And then, my friend Amy was all like "that giveaway looks cool, but it says the winner was someone else....."


Apparently I got the email because I participated in the giveaway.
I know, I know. I'm an idiot.

Oh, AND I replied TO ALL.
Something lame along the lines of "Thank you so much, that is awesome!"

I'm sure everyone on the email, we are talking a lot of freaking people here, are completely confused now.

In my defense, the email was not "to" anyone, had she put Dear So-and-so or whatever like your English teacher teaches you to do in like 5th grade, then my blonde moment would not have occurred.

And if you were in on that email, and you think I'm an idiot, please keep it to yourself. Or comment, cause that's funnier.

Hey, maybe someone will be confused and accidentally send me a giftcard. A girl can dream...I never win nothing!

In other news, aside from me being a complete idiot with my Friday fail, I went to bootcamp and LOVED it last night!

I almost threw up, several times.
In my book, that means success.
They have the class 2 nights during the week and on Saturday morning so I hope to be a regular from now on.
I am completely frustrated that I am doing awesome and the scale isn't moving...but I'm not giving up.
That scale WILL move eventually if it is the death of me.

I also am excited to tell you that once I get off work today, I have ABSOLUTELY nothing planned except for a Friday night date with FH for gym time. So I plan on catching up on all my favorite blogs tonight before gym time......I hate being behind on blog reading.

Hope everyone has a fantabulous Friday!
Beware of misleading emails that make you think you are a winner, when in fact, you are still a loser.      :)
Pin It Now!

  9. That picture scares the crap out of me!

    I am always afraid to try classes at the YMCA I go to. I feel like people are looking at me and making fun of me. I need to get over that, because I feel like I would do better in a class than I would by just exercising by myself.

  10. The picture totally makes the post! Love it!

  11. Lmao!!!! I would like to see the look on the people's faces when they read your reply! Hahaha! "Reply to all" and group texting freaks me out!

  13. Ha! I've gotten emails like that before and got all excited..just caught it before I replied :) Happy Friday!

  14. Ahaha, I did that exact same thing a few weeks ago because we all know I wake up like 10 times in the middle of the night and check and respond to all emails half asleep. It said congraulations on winning the group giveaway! I was so so excited and then kept reading and realized she just copied the people who were donating for the giveaway. Boo. = ( Thank goodness I didn't reply though. =)

  15. Ah, that sucks that you didn't win!! Next time, next time! = ) I'm catching up on blogs tonight too. I feel so out of the look lately!
