Oh, what a movie. Who didn’t want to go in their neighborhood pool because of this beast? I RAISE MY HAND! That shit was scary.

Come on baby, light my FIRE!

born for this

I love that song. Which song? You ask. It’s an INCREDIBLE work out song. [I’ll show you at the bottom] I just completed a makeover of our blog. Since my husband returned, he has been more “mendivated” than ever to be a part of MENDIVATION! We have decided to combine our efforts, life trials, and […]
