Ok ok I did it. I washed my hair. AND shaved my legs. I hated every second of it. Especially since it’s now freezing in Colorado. Shaving your legs + goosebumps, blows ass. It’s painful. It’s like constant razor burn throughout every swipe of the razor. But I’m trying, people. I’m trying!

Guess what I decided? This weekend is going to be good. Real good. You know why? Ok, so last night I went out shopping for a Halloween costume and found this awesome black sequin, open back dress. So it’s slutty, but not really because it goes down to my knees in length. I looked through a bunch of the Halloween costumes there, you know, the dirty nurse, dirty Hogwarts, dirty firewoman, but I can’t pull that stuff off. Nor do I want to. It’s freezing, and my ass barely fits into my spandex, let alone a dress that is suppose to cover only half my ass. Imagine how that outfit would look. I’ll help you out: not good.

But before I become a slightly skankified Audrey Hepburn, I’ll be attending an awesome fundraiser. My friend Clark who owns CrossFit South Denver will be hosting a Bears for Kids Charity Competition this Saturday October 27th from 12-4pm.  It’s a pretty cool fundraiser, especially since 100% of the proceeds will go to the Denver Children’s Home. And in an attempt to raise even more money for the kids, for every $10 received in donations, Clark and I will do one burpee. Once the total donations are totaled, we will compete to see who can finish the burpees first. So what I’m pretty much is saying, you should come, hang out, work out, and do burpees. Come on, you know you wanna.

Oh and remember how I said the dress went down to my knees. I lied. I just tried it on. My ass took control once again with this dress. It’s real short. Ugh.

Is it pathetic I get goosebumps every time I see the commercials for the last Twilight movie? Wait, don’t answer that.
