“Waity Katie” Makes For “Waity” Baby

UPDATE: According to E! News, Kate Middleton gave birth to a healthy 8lbs. 6oz. baby boy at around 4:24pm local London time. I’m glad that the baby is healthy and that my guess was right! So exciting and congrats to the lovely couple. I can’t wait for more developments!

The countdown has been going on all week in anticipation for Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge to give birth to her and Prince William’s child. The supposed due date was set for sometime last week, but unlike Kim Kardashian’s baby (le sigh) the Royal Baby is hold onto the womb for dear life. This makes me think that the Royal Baby has already inherited the “waity” trait from its mother (ha). 

Review: Yurbuds Small Size Earphones

I wanted to post about my thoughts about the new Yurbuds Small Size Earphones that are “Developed For Women.” I purchased these earphones last night because I really needed a pair that won’t fall out of my ear when I run. Before I was just using the earphones that came with the iPhone 5. I liked them because of the sound quality and the ability to control the volume and play/pause with the remote attached to the cord. However, I believe I have the weirdest ears ever that require a better fit than what the generically-sized earphones can provide me.

I know I’m a little late on this post, but I can not forget how exciting this moment was when Andy Murray conquered the number 1 player in the world Novak Djokovic in three straight sets. I woke up to make sure I didn’t miss this match because I knew that Murray had a pretty damn good chance to take the championship. As the commentators let on during the start of the broadcast, Murray has a way of stressing out his fans by flirting with losing. Sounds like my favorite hockey team, the Chicago Blackhawks, I like to call them the comeback kings sometimes because the game is never over for those guys until the last horn.

Today was another one of those days where I found it impossible to motivate myself to go to the gym. I know it’s important to do a least a little bit of exercise everyday, but I was not ready to engage in my usual intense workout. I had heard about Blogilates before across various websites and decided to try one out. I chose to do the beginner total body workout because that was the first video suggested by the workout calendar that Cassey (the Blogilates trainer) has put together for everyone just starting out.

This was probably the only match I had watched of the men’s singles from start to finish and I’m glad I did. I picked Andy Murray to take it all at the world famous grass court tournament in Wimbledon, England. My prediction seemed to be slipping away as Murray started the match two sets down against Spanish player Fernando Verdasco. I was really frustrated because I knew that Murray was better than the way he was playing especially in the second set. Thankfully, he put himself in check to take the next three sets.
