Celebrity Crushes

We made it to Friday, folks!!! Yea!!! That of course means, I get to sleep in tomorrow. I can’t wait!!

Have any of you had the chance to watch the new “Bethenny Frankel Show?” I DVR it and watch it every night after my kids hit the sack. I love my alone time with Bethenny! I have stated before that I have a total girl crush on her. I just love everything about her, from her books, like “Naturally Thin” to her “tell it like it is” personality!

Okay…back to her show! Yesterday she had Justin Beiber on and  we know most girls between the ages of 5-14 have a massive crush on him. My daughter most definitely think she has a chance of busting up him and Selana Gomez. After all, she IS gonna marry him someday, lol!!

Anyway, this got me to thinking about my own childhood celebrity crushes. I remember buying magazines like “Bop” and “Tiger Beat” and pouring over them for HOURS daydreaming about how one day I would  be the girlfriend to…are you ready for it….COREY HAIM!! I was OBSESSED! I had posters of him plastered on my wall and I would watch “License to Drive” over and over again. It  makes me sad now to see how his life ended so tragically. I will always remember him as a cute and innocent 15 year old boy.

Eventually I moved one to others. This one being NKOTB and Donnie Wahlberg. I still remember sitting in my room crying like it was the end of the world because my mom told me that I couldn’t go to their concert. I seriously thought I would die of a broken heart. Because of course, if I went to the concert, he was going to see ME through the thousands of other girls and we would fall madly in love. Heehee!! I get such a laugh out of it now(and a bit embarrassed about how dramatic I was) but when I was living it, the heartache felt so real!

Thankfully as we grow up, we fall in love with people who are actually attainable and our crushes become just that….crushes…um, Hello Adam Levine ;-)!! And Leonardo DiCaprio. I can’t forget Enrique Iglesias!! Ha…can you tell I still crush a bit. It ‘s fun and takes me back to my younger years 🙂

No crush can compare to true love 🙂


Workout of the Day

I did my second At Home Cross Fit workout today! Again, this one was pretty easy so I felt the need to add to it a bit.

WOD # 2: Tabatas: 8 rounds of each exercise. 20 seconds of work, 10 seconds of rest. You complete 8 sets of each exercise before moving on to the next. The original workout looked like this:


Sit-Ups(I did them on a ball)

Squats( I used 10 pound weights today)

I added two additional exercises:

Bench Step Ups(no weight)

Jump Rope

My arms were on fire after the push-ups and yes, I dropped to my knees by about the 3rd set. I obviously need to work on my upper body strength!

I didn’t feel like hopping on the elliptical today so that is why I added the last two exercises. I wanted to feel like I worked up a good sweat and that did it for me!

Who was your childhood celebrity crush?

    When I was like 14 I had a MAJOR crush on Chris O’Donnell. Me and my friends were crazy and figured out where his parents lived and called them. I think we ended up leaving a message on their machine. We thought if we could get in good with them then he would fall madly in love with me! Haha! How insane is that now looking back!
    I can’t think of a single adult crush I have now. Now how crazy is that?

    • Wow, y’all were little detectives!!! I think it is funny that you were able to figure out it was his actual family. Did they live hear you?

        In an interview he said his parents lived in some town in Michigan (I think that was right) I read another interview where he mentioned his parents name. We put two and two together and found out there number was public! Hello stalker! Haha!

  3. I’m loving Bethenny’s talk show 🙂 My childhood celebrity crush was Joey MacIntyre; I was a huge NKOTB fan!! Right now I’m loving Chris Hemsworth, although I haven’t actually seen any of his movies – I just like looking at pictures of him 😉
