Friday Facts: Too White For Zumba

Fact #1 I am too white for Zumba. But I continue to go and make a fool out of myself because, well, someone has to be that white girl (and it’s a lot more fun than running on the treadmill). Here I am! Enjoy the confidence boost while I awkwardly booty-drop on the off-beat.
Fact #2 If there were a Hoarders: Computer Edition, I would be the first person on the show. Assemble the intervention team now. In an effort to organize and protect my digital life, I invested in an external hard drive and attempted to backup all of my pictures/docs/MYLIFE last night and almost had a panic attack. Thank God for my husband for a) teaching me how to use it and b) not leaving me because I’m obsessive-compulsive and clearly a psycho.

Fact #3 I didn’t just pass the Praxis, I KILLED IT. I’ve been freaking out for months about those tests and the results are finally in: 182, 192, 193, out of 200. Only needed a 160 to pass. BOOM.

Fact #4 As long as someone (please, for the love of God) hires me in the fall, I only have to work at Outback for 24 more weeks. There is a light at the end of the tunnel! I can almost see it! Don’t get me wrong, I’m grateful that I have a job and the money to support my family. HOWEVER, I’ve worked there for over three years now. It’s time.

Fact #5 The last five pounds of baby weight, a.k.a. the spare tire around my waist, need to go! Summer is not very far away and it would be nice to wear a bikini without feeling like a whale. My historically-high metabolism is really failing me these days, and I’m basically too lazy to do real exercise (making a fool out of myself in Zumba doesn’t exactly count). Do they make diet Nutella?

Fact #6 Since, let’s face it, I probably won’t get around to writing Landon’s nine month post in the foreseeable future, you should know that his head is in the 99th percentile. In the words of our pediatrician, “If there was a 100th percentile, he would be in it.” Big head = lots of brains? I knew he would be smart like his momma. Did I mention he’s cruising the furniture these days? Watch out, world! Baby genius on the move.

P.S. Fact #7 This is ridiculous. I just cry-laughed while it played on repeat roughly seventy times. Happy weekend =]
