More hours

Ello mate.


I have some good news: I got a call last week from my local YMCA and they want me to teach  Wednesday night spin classes every other week. Sweet! I took them up on the offer.

I am loving my job so far! It’s extra fun when my mom, sister, or dad come to my classes because I know they’ll give me honest feedback on how I’m doing.

Sometimes I play certain songs during the class because I know it’s their favorite (my mom loves Tom Petty and my sister likes Miley Cyrus).

Of course my job isn’t always 100% perfect (duh), like last night, I was so tired and not in the mood to teach but once I got on the bike and saw everyone I perked up and even felt energized after the class.


So, I got more hours at work. I wish I had more hours in the day. I feel like my life is a total whirlwind right now!

  • My brother proposed to his girlfriend the day before Easter!
  • I have a few more weeks left of school and it it BUSY!
  • I’ve been trying to make time to do leisurely activities like reading and baking.
  • I only see Jimmy about 1-2x a week (we live 50 minutes apart) and I miss him.

Some pictures:Congrats to my brother and his fiance!

For my kinesology class, the teacher split everyone into groups and we had a scavenger hunt last Friday. We had to take pictures with all of the items. It was fun and totally crazy!

I just finished this book. I loved it! I had no idea that Amanda Beard went through so much in her life and she has really grown to be an awesome person as well as an amazing swimmer. I’d recommend this book to anyone, not just swimmers.


Okay, I’m off to school and then work.

Have a great day!


  1. YAYY for more hours! I honestly wish I lived at home…I would be at every one of your classes 🙂 And I am like 10 pages away from finishing the book. SO FREAKING AMAZING. She is an inspiration..and like you, I was shocked to read some of the things she has been through…many of which I am sure we can all relate to!

  2. Congrats on more classes! I hope your schedule lets up a bit soon, at least school will be over for the semester in a couple of weeks :). Love the pic of you and your sister in the spin class too!

  3. That first photo of you is STUNNING.

    I’m so glad you are loving teaching! I bet it will be even more fun when school lets out and you can devote more time to it over the summer. Life is so crazy right now! It sounds like you have a lot going on but are still enjoying the little moments. That is so important.

    Happy mid-week my dear!

  4. 1) I’ve heard amazing things about Amanda Beard! I would love to read that book too!

    2) Love that first pic! You look adorable!

    3) Congrats on the YMCA hiring you for every other Wed! How awesome is that!!

    4) Congrats to your bro! That is BIG NEWS!

    Happy Thursday, Allie!! 😀

  5. Woohoo, congrats on all the job success! And congrats to your bro as well. I hope you and your man get some more time together once classes are over and life can slow down a little. Long distance is hard!
