You’re looking so good in what’s left of those blue jeans.

Well apparently all of my post titles are going to be country song lyrics now, because it’s summer and that’s just how it’s going to be. Speaking of country music, my mom and I actually just got tickets to go see Rascal Flatts and The Band Perry at the end of June. But it’s no big deal, because you guys know I chilled with The Band Perry when I went to see Ellen, so we’re basically best friends already. Totally kidding. That was all the sarcasm I have right now. And then later in August, my dad and I are going to see Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, and Eli Young Band. Now I just have to suck it up and buy tickets to Toby Keith and Kip Moore and my summer is set. But not really, because I’m super high maintenance when it comes to concerts and also want to go to all of these:

  • Jonas Brothers
  • Train/The Script
  • John Mayer
  • Backstreet Boys/Pauly D/Jesse McCartney
  • Kelly Clarkson
  • Kid Rock

WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME. No wonder I’m poor. Now that we’re on the topic of concerts, want to see how creepy I am? Lady Gaga, T Swift, and Joe Jonas are all so much  more beautiful in person. Especially Joe. He better watch out if I ever meet him.




Okay, moving on. Did you all have a good Memorial Day? I sure did. My friend Tara and I went to a local parade and brought along her awesome flat Ellen to give her a little American tradition experience. Somehow we ended up in the middle of the parade, right between the boy scouts and the high school band. Whoops. We had quite a laugh over that one.


After that, I had a ton of things to catch up on. I went for a wonderful run/walk and then did 45ish minutes of strength/toning. I also did a Tara Stiles “relax” yoga routine for 30 minutes, because relaxed is the exact opposite of what I have been lately.


Then I actually had to do some work and made a bunch of client calls, made 3 new training plans, organized all the files on my computer, and applied for a few jobs. Yuck. I know I need to get a real person job eventually, so I figured I would just start looking to try to hopefully find something that doesn’t completely disgust me.

Even though I did all that stuff, I will totally admit that I stayed in my running clothes all day long. Didn’t change once. That is my life right now.


And then after a totally wonderful dinner of Jimmy John’s subs and pickles, my sister and I settled in with some cranberry wine to watch THE BACHELORETTE FINALLY!!!! I am fully aware that is a totally stupid and fake show, but it’s my favorite so leave me alone. And I know Brooke is just as excited, if not more, as I am. I’m not going to recap it, because some of you probably didn’t watch it yet, but I’m totally talking about freaking everything on Wednesday, so please don’t come here if you don’t want to know what happened :) Monday nights are the best.

Also, please watch this, because I promise it will make you smile.

Were you super productive or super lazy yesterday? :p


  1. Ugh girl, I was so damn lazy it isn’t even funny. I did get a few things done that will hopefully get me outta the midwest sooner than later and I, of course, watched The Bachelorette whilst eating my weight in PB and chocolate (who’s counting??!) so that makes me semi-productive, right??! ;)

      I am liking your ideas :p I am so over caring about what I eat. I am going to eat healthy when I can, and indulge when I want. Life’s too short, haha. So in my eyes you were VERY productive <3

  2. I’ve never seen the bachelorette but I kind of want to watch it… all this talk has me tempted. I wore the same clothes for 4 days straight, and they were yoga pants and a sweatshirt. You can’t do much worse than me.

  3. I have been job applying like it IS my job! That and a little shopping :) OMG the bachelorette soo good, I can’t wait for your recap but can we all just agree that watching the beginning just made us want a blue convertible and live in California even more..

    • allison.hayes91 says:

      Sounds perfect to me! Do you follow me on twitter?! I literally tweeted that about the convertible and mansion right away…haha

  4. I was both productive and lazy. I spent the whole day writing papers in pajamas. And of course watching The Bachelorette. If you ever need a friend to talk trashy TV with, I’m your gal.

  5. Mm more productive than lazy sadly…coffee with heather, cleaning up the house, and running around with joe all afternoon…hoping for a lazier day today so I can finally respond to your email!! Love the Ellen head btw…fabulous thing to take to a parade :)

  6. I was pretty darn lazy. I managed to accomplish some things- if it meant I could do it from my couch. I needed a day to just lay around and relax! I think we all do once in a while :)

  7. I saw that performance at the nail salon and immediately thought of you. I rarely watch ellen so it was hilarious it was on and happened to show this dance.

  8. AHHHH BACHELORETTE!!! I just watched it and I am about to write a recap right now! I was driving when it came on last night and couldn’t watch it with a bottle of wine like always :( I couldn’t wait until tonight to watch it so I watched it right when I woke up, without wine and without being able to talk about it with anyone which was a MISTAKE! Can’t even wait for next Monday! I have a bottle of cab and your twitter handle ready.. hahahah

    • allison.hayes91 says:

      Oh just wait til tomorrow. I have a lot to say, haha. One of these days we will be together with our wine watching it <3

  9. I’m going to that concert on Friday!! I’m so excited…probably the only country music lover from Long Island, but that’s okay =)
