We’re on twitter. You can follow us @LifeofaNightOwl or by clicking here.
So we want to get you guys more into our blog, so it isn’t so much that we’re talking at you, but actually having conversations. So! With that being said, knowing that it might be in a blog, what is the most embarrassing moment you’ve had in public?
If you don’t want to publicly post it, feel free to send us a message on Facebook, or you can use the contact form below. And we promise, we’ll tell you guys our most embarrassing moments, too, in our FIRST joint efforts blog post. We’re hoping to do this at least once a month, maybe more if it seems to be something people enjoy. And we promise, we won’t make fun of you. It’s more of an observation post and not a “hey, this guy peed his pants! HAHA!” kind of post. We would never do that.
We’re going to be taking emails until May 23rd, and have the post up by May 25th.

Okay, so with the exception of my BzzAgent campaigns, it takes a lot for me to write an unprovoked product review.
That should tell you how much I love this product!
The Ninja® Blended Boost™ is a unique nutrient-infused powder supplement that you add to any blended drink. It’s taste-free, sugar-free, and naturally caffeine-free. Each stick contains a boost of 30+ vitamins, minerals, nutrients, and antioxidants to support: heart, bone, metabolism, digestive, colon, brain, eye, circulatory, immune, and energy functions. Add to your favorite smoothie, milkshake, or any blended drink without even knowing it’s there! I use these little packets everyday in my morning smoothie and in just the first week I feel more energized, less drowsy throughout the day, I sleep better, and I have even had less pain in my knee! (That is probably just coincidence, but I felt like I should add it! lol) I can really tell the difference if I forgot to use it a couple days. I had been really curious about it for a while, but regular retail price of $14.99 was a little steep for me for only 20 sticks. I decided to pick some up when I saw them on the clearance rack at my local Walmart for only $5! I would HIGHLY recommend this product to anyone who wants to boost their vitamin intake but, like me, can’t stand (or remember) taking pills everyday!
Let me know what you think if you try it, or what you thought if you have tried it!
I got a hair up my butt this morning and decided to try some ab workouts. 2 repetitions of 2 different workouts, and I’m already sore. I still feel like doing more, but I can already tell that my abs are getting a workout. I started out with this workout:
The only problems I had were finding how-to’s for the various v-ups. Unless I was suspended in the air on a trapeze, I couldn’t do the how-to’s, so I just replaced the v-ups with the first three crunches. I repeated this workout twice.
I followed up with this workout:
I think this is my favorite ab workout so far. I have a sprained wrist/thumb, but I placed thick sheets under my hand, and it could do the mountain climbers, so no excuses for me! I also broke up the crunches into 5 sets of 10 reps (I’m sure one day I’ll be able to do all 50 in one shot!), the 50 bicycle crunches into 5 sets of 10 reps (again, one day I will do all 50 in one go), and the mountain climbers into 2 sets of 15 reps (double counted, meaning left foot comes to chest level, switch with right foot coming to chest level = 1) because of my hand so I wasn’t putting too much pressure on it for too long. I repeated this workout twice.
I plan on sticking to this workout and doing it at least once a day (I’m trying to right after I wake up in the morning or before I go to bed).
Also, when I have someone here to help with this part, I will be posting before pics of my (flabby) tummy, then periodically (about once a month) I’ll post updates. Yay accountability and having something to nag me about doing this! Haha.
If you know any good ab workouts, leave them in the comments! We’ll love to try them out! 🙂
The night was warm. Unusually warm for mid April. The house was quiet. Almost everyone was asleep. Anya sat looking out of her bedroom window at the bright stars that sat above her in the clear, deep, blue night sky. A light breeze filled the air. Enough to tousle her long, brown hair. She smiled and closed eyes, listening to music that played just below her window. A few crickets were singing, a baby bird just waking up in a nest on a branch near her window. The gentle hush as the trees danced. It was enough to remind her of a similar night a few summers ago. Before everything changed, before she forgot who she was.
As she closed her eyes, she concentrated on that one summer night. The night her life changed. The night she could never forget. Everything seemed to be just like this night, only she shared it with someone. She wasn’t just anyone, she was Anya’s best friend and first love. Her name was Kara. She was small, but she had a big heart. Her hair was golden blonde, and her eyes were as green as the first leaves in spring. She had a voice like an angel, no matter what, it could make anyone smile. They spent every day together that summer. And even though Anya loved her, she knew her parents couldn’t handle it. She kept her feelings for Kara a secret.
Anya tried to forget about lying to her parents, she wanted to remember only the good things. Her eyes closed tighter. She thought more about the tree, the one the baby bird was singing in. The petals from the cherry blossoms fell so gracefully that night. They landed tenderly on her skin, almost like snow. How she wanted to be back under that tree in Kara’s arms. She was so nervous. She couldn’t remember the last time she was that nervous. She could feel every muscle in her body tighten, anxious and excited and scared about what might happen next.
Anya and Kara laid under the tree in silence. A whisper or two here and there, but mostly quietly enjoying each others company. Kara propped herself up on her arm, she looked down into Anya’s eyes and smiled, tracing down her jaw, down her arm, and finally resting on her waist. She could still feel the warmth where her fingers once were. She could feel her skin cover in goosebumps, but warm where Kara was caressing her with her soft hand. She looked back into her eyes trying to hide her fright and how nervous she was. That moment felt like a lifetime, even if it only lasted a few seconds. Kara leaned down and kissed her with her soft lips. They tasted like heaven to Anya, and she floating in the clouds, where heaven should be. The moment was perfect. She held Kara’s body close to hers for what felt like forever.
Only the soft crying from the backdoor caught their attention. They looked to see Anya’s mother standing in shock, crying, watching her daughter being kissed by another girl. She wasn’t supposed to be like that. Her mother screamed at Kara, calling her a devil child, a sinner, saying her lifestyle choice wasn’t tolerated in her home. Anya wasn’t allowed to see Kara after that night. A hurried goodbye was all that could have been said before Anya was rushed to her room. The next week Anya was sent to spend the rest of her summer with her aunt and uncle until her parents could deal with her again. She saw Kara once since that night. Afraid of what might happen, Kara ignored Anya. Her heart was broken, for both Kara and her family. The last memory she has of Kara was the kiss under the cherry blossom tree. It was her perfect, yet saddening, first kiss. It has defined her, and she will always love, and never forget, the girl under the cherry blossom tree.
