So, this is the picture of MY new tattoo!! I've been wanting one on my wrist for a long time, several years in fact. And now, I have it! I can't even put into words how excited I am about it! I love it and I couldn't be happier!

I have always been drawn to tattoos. When I was a girl I thought boys who had them were so hot. For a while I never expected to get tattoos myself, but I got my first one, a red star, last September. I have a feeling I will end up with at least five. All small for the most part, no sleeves or anything. For me, I wait to get a tattoo when I know the place and picture I want. Even then, I don't go get it right away, I wait to make sure the idea sticks in my head and doesn't change, I mean, tattoo's are permanent. I realize they are not for everyone and that's fine, I like them and feel like they help describe who I am.

Another fear most people have is having tattoo's that show. (This new one is on my wrist, my other is on my shoulder) I certainly see the logic in that, but mine is small enough that a bracelet could cover most of it, and I don't see myself going into fields that have taboos on visible tattoos.

So that's my tattoo story, if you have on feel free to share!

Exercise Monday

Today is the day I started my new workout schedule. I walked two miles and I hope to continue to do so each day this week. I also signed up for a free class this Sat morning that I think will give me a boost in the exercising department as well.

Each week I'm going to listen to a new-to-me-band. This week is: Mumford and Sons.

Tomorrow after I do my workout of course, I'm planning a writing day. I'm really excited for it. I'm hoping to pass the 10,000 word mark. Shouldn't be to hard.

So, here is a question I would like to ask everyone, what music do you listen to when you work out? Do you change it up or stick with the same playlist/cd?

Music minute

So, I wanted to use this post to highlight the music I'm digging right now.

When I heard this song on the radio, I knew who it was and I couldn't have been more pleased. I went and got her albums and have been jamming for a while to them. Who is it?


Every song is awesome and I just can't seem to get enough. So, if you haven't heard of her check it out and let me know what you think!!

I spent this weekend with friends and time with my boyfriend. It was nice. No writing was done but that's going to be amended soon. The next two chapters of by book are swimming in my head so I doubt I can keep myself from writing them for long.
