I saw this Accent Vlog on Cait’s Blog and thought it was a great idea.

I promise I am normally not this cheesy. Lets just say I started singing in the middle of this vlog. OH boy.

BTW I just realized I said hey guys in the beginning too. You’ll see what I mean later on in the video!

This took 27 hours to load. FINALLY I uploaded it 🙂

Good Morning! ❤

I woke up to this little booger barking his head off.


Don’t be fooled by that innocent little face. Lately when he wants something he barks until he gets it. Of course I’m a pushover so I give him what he wants. Now he’s smart enough to know that will always work. He’s so spoiled!

I slept like a baby because I got new pillows yesterday. Best decision of my life. Well until I make another great decision, but for now it is awesome to me.

Today is my REST DAY. After a week of working out hard, it’s nice to have my rest day on Sunday’s so I can fully enjoy the day and let my muscles rest and get stronger.


Last night mi madre and I went to a new campus of our church. It was nice and just as good, but I like our main one better! The main one has the pastor right in front of you whereas this campus shows him on the screen. This campus is closer to us though and it was nice to check out a new environment.

We didn’t get out of church till around 7:30 and we were super hungry. The thought of driving home about 15 minutes away and then cooking just wasn’t appealing to us the slightest bit.

We decided we deserved a nice little night out and we stopped at Friday’s because they had a good deal. We each got the 2 for $10 where you can pick an appetizer AND and entrée or an entrée AND a dessert. The only logical thing to do was to each get one and one get an app and split it and the other get the dessert and split it. Good deal if I say so myself!

Forgot to snap a picture of the appetizer but we had a spinach and tomato flat bread.

For my entrée I got the Dragonfire Chicken. It was a grilled chicken breast with some orange stuff over rice and broccoli on the side.


The flash went off so the picture isn’t great quality. I ate all the chicken and all the broccoli and ended up leaving almost all the rice because it wasn’t that great. The chicken and broccoli were good but just a little spicier than I expected! I’m a baby when it comes to spicy though.

My mom got the parmesan encrusted chicken which came with a tomato and mozzarella salad on the side.

For dessert, we were trying to decide between the Oreo ice cream sandwich, the peanut butter pie, or the vanilla bean cheesecake. I wanted the Oreo or the peanut butter because that’s just what I would always rather have. Plus, I really don’t like cheese cake! =O Sorry to all you cheesecake lovers but it’s too heavy and creamy to me. I’d much rather have chocolate or peanut butter! Of course, my mom decided on the cheesecake because that is what the server recommended.


Talk about massive! I ended up having two bites and then had to stop there. It was vanilla bean and white chocolate. I’m not a huge fan of white chocolate either so that was more than enough for me. It was pretty good though, my taste buds were just not into it especially since I was feelin’ the chocolate.


I am now sipping on my usually morning cup of Joe 😀


Not sure what I have planned for today but I’m sure it will be nice and relaxing like a Sunday should be ;P

Before I forget! Whoever has instagram follow me. It is addicting and so much fun Open-mouthed smile

@brinnyx3 is my username. I update pictures as my day goes on usually with food, coffee and Bentley. Lots of Bentley ;D But much more!

I also made a Pinterest account, finally! http://pinterest.com/thextramile/

I am still trying to get the hang of it but so far so good. Send me your instagram and pinterest accounts as well in a comment or an email if you’d like. I want to follow all of you!!

Can you believe I haven’t even made a Facebook account yet? I’m weird but it will happen soon. I’ll let you all know when that happens.

Have a beautiful Sunday!


What’s your favorite type of dessert?

Chocolate or ice cream for me!

Do you have instagram or pinterest?

Would you rather have spicy or not spicy?

Very, very mild or not at all.

Do you splurge on the weekends?

Yes, more than during the week!

Relaxing weekends or get a bunch of stuff done?

I have a mix of both. Depends on what needs to be done and what already has been done.

Feeding an Army

Happy Labor Day!

I hope everyone is enjoying their long weekend. I always do when I have a few extra days off from school Smile

Yesterday I was hoping to sleep in but I woke up at 7 am. I wanted to go back to sleep but Bentley had ran into my room and wanted to cuddle!

He was being way too adorable for me to say no, and I couldn’t fall back asleep so I decided just to wake up. I brewed some coffee and caught up on some blogs before deciding that I wanted to get a run in before the Body Works Class I planned to take at 9:45.

I was going to run outside because it wasn’t raining, but it is honestly still way too hot and humid here in Florida so I just decided to do a treadmill workout instead. If I don’t wake up early enough, it gets hot SO fast here.

I went over to my mini gym and completed about 4 miles of running and .25 as a cool down, 4.25 total. I found an old workout that included hills and a good speed that wasn’t too slow which was what I completed but I can’t remember what blog I found it on. Once I figure it out I’ll be more than happy to share with you guys. It was a really great run!

There was actually a power surge after about 9 minutes into my run which was really weird because it was bright and sunny out! That’s not the first time that’s happened to me before. It has actually happened quite a few times.

Once I finished my run strong, I went back home and my mom was ready to go for the class. We don’t get to workout together much because she works 8-5 everyday and she won’t wake up early with me. So when we get the chance we like to, I definitely push her more. I could easily train her!

The class was great, it incorporated strength and kept our heart rates up the whole time so it wasn’t slow and boring.

We had to stop at the grocery store on the way home because we had NO food. I had cereal for dinner the night before, that’s an example of no food in the house.

I only had some cantaloupe and coffee for breakfast so we were hungry after our workout. Food shopping while hungry may not be the best idea. Trust me.


Yay stocked fridge!! We came home with enough food to feed an army. Tons of food!



Fruit and veggie drawers are definitely the best part! I feel like I can eat healthier when we have more food because I have a variety and more options to make better choices.

I was famished when we finally got home and put everything away so we made a quick sandwich.


Just a simple turkey with half muenster, half gouda cheese, a bit of hummus, lettuce and tomato on toasted rye bread. Quick and easy.

There was some chores to get done around the house so we got cleaning. I always have to clean the house every weekend, it feels so much nicer when everything’s clean.

Once everything was done, we decided it was nice enough to head over to the pool.



I jumped in the hot tub once we got there and it was on fire! Don’t ask me why I wanted to go in the 104 degree hot tub in 95 degree weather. I’m a complete weirdo.

I quickly dove into the pool and laid in the sun for a little while until I couldn’t take it anymore. I get really antsy laying out especially when it’s hot. I decided to head home not long after and shower. I love showers.

After relaxing and some homework, it was time for dinner.

We had chicken shish kabobs with veggies, a potato, and peas.

DSC01222  The chicken was super juicy which I was actually surprised about. Plus peas + potato is such a good combo. Yummy meal!

I finally painted my nails! I love when they’re painted but who knows how long they will last.


I wanted to do something different and fun so I painted the middle one a lighter color. I like it Smile Maybe it looks like I’m 12 but I don’t really care.


Yum, I’m sure you guys really wanted to see a picture of my ginormous feet Smile But just wanted to show the color, I love the dark!

I was craving froyo after dinner so we went out and got some!

We tried a new place and unfortunately I didn’t really like it. The handles were weird, the flavors weren’t that great so we were a little disappointed but I found a couple I liked. They had a little variety of toppings too.


I feel like I can never go wrong with cake batter + cookies n cream. I usually want to try something new but these were the best out of all of them. I topped it with strawberries, coconut, a few mini Reese’s PB cups, and a squirt of fudge. Froyo craving fixed! I haven’t had it in a while, so I was over due. I never realized how much I like coconut either, I need to start buying it for home!

I’m going out for the day to enjoy the last bit of the long weekend. The good thing about the weekend being over? It’s a shorter week and will get to the next weekend faster Winking smile

Enjoy your day!

Weekend Recap

So I know it’s already Tuesday but I wanted to share what happened over my busy weekend.

A little background so this doesn’t get confusing, I live with my mom in West Palm Beach but also with my Dad in Plantation. I grew up in Broward and my mom moved after I graduated so that’s why I go back and forth (to see my friends). Anyway, this weekend my dad was moving from his small apartment into a bigger/nicer house. I drove down south to help out, and boy is moving a pain! However, he bought me a new kitten so that made it much more manageable!


Isn’t she a cutie? We named her Maya and she’s a 9 week old mix of a Persian and another type of cat, which I forgot. I’m sure you’ll be seeing more of her on the blog (along with my dog that I’m obsessed with). Yup, he’s perfect.


After moving all weekend, I drove back up to WPB Sunday afternoon to get in some birthday shopping Winking smile Yup, I’m a Leo and my birthday is in 4 days!

Once I arrived in WPB, I met my mom at Barnes and Noble to chat and wait for an appointment that we had. While waiting I sipped on a Passion Iced Tea Lemonade, so so good!


Finally it was time to head out and go to the next destination. Where did we have to go? Well turns out my mom just bought a new townhouse as well! We had to stop by our realtors’ and sign the paperwork! We found a beautiful townhouse not too far from where we live now, that is in immaculate condition. It’s two stories, 3 bedrooms with an extra one for a loft, lake view, great neighborhood, and just overall perfect. We’re super excited, but another move I have to partake in, blah. It will all be worth it though!

After our exciting afternoon, we headed over to the mall for some retail therapy. Always puts a smile on my face! We did some damage around the mall before heading home.


These are actually from JC Penny! They were on sale and I LOVE them. I was quite surprised, but I recommend it, it felt cool and perfect while running and working out.IMG_2285


Finally new running shoes! These are Brooks Adrenaline and I absolutely love them. Great support and so comfortable while running.



Random clothes from Forever 21 !







After moving all weekend and shopping all day, I was exhausted when I got home. I think I went to sleep around 10. I’m such a wild teenager, I know. Hope everyone had a great weekend as well!

Did anything interesting happen over your weekend?
