Three Thing Thursday

14 Jul

Great news everyone..IT’S ALMOST FRIDAY! 

This week has flown by. Tuesday night my mom and sister came up to Chicago for the night so I ended up working my early shift (6a-3p) on Wednesday so I could hang out with them after. Early shifts always go by so much faster than my later ones (10a-7p) so it already feels like the end of the week.

We are about 16 days out from moving into the new apartment and things are starting to add up. Yesterday I bought new towels, new dishes, some decorative things for our living room and a very expensive nice bed for this guy.

Do you like how Thursday’s have become my puppy picture update day? I am going to start calling these posts “Puppy Watch” instead. Only 5 1/2 weeks until he’s mine!


This week’s Three Thing Thursday is centered around three things that made me smile this week (besides the above picture).

  1. My mom made my bed yesterday. I NEVER make my bed anymore except maybe once a week so it was nice to come home too.

2. Real bagels. I was on the bagel thin train for a while but they just don’t cut it. Sometimes you just need a nice think, carb a licious filled bagel. Like this one I made into an amazing egg, cheese and turkey bacon sandwich.

3. Decent running. I had an awesome 6 miles on Tuesday. I am really using this as a good luck propeller for my long run I am going to attempt to do after work today. I am thinking I might try out the Jeff Galloway run/walk method for it. I don’t really understand how it works though.

What are three things that made you smile this week?

Any experience doing the run/walk method?

-I am really just confused on how running doing 4 min run/1 min walk intervals = nine minute miles.

How fast are you supposed to be running the 4 min at?

Thankful Thursday

30 Jun

This week has been a crazy, exciting and busy week. A lot of big things have happened in my life and I have a lot of things to be thankful for so today  I bring you Thankful Thursday!

  1. I am thankful for my new apartment! I have signed a lease on a new place with my sister and her friend starting August 1st! the decision to move, find a place, and sign on it all happened within the past 10 days or so. I am going to miss my roommates now and my current apartment but finding a new apartment was essential due to…
  2. MY PUPPY. I have mentioned on and off on this blog that I want a dog and as of yesterday I have a deposit on a 4 day old golden-doodle pup! I will share so many pictures you will hate me soon enough. I made the decision to buy a pup instead of adopt because my roommate is allergic and can only be around hypoallergenic dogs. If you have any other questions about how I chose my pup please ask 🙂
  3. I am very thankful for ice cream. It has been really warm here lately and all I want is ice cream at all times. I’ve had cookies n creme, snickers ice cream bars, and hagaan daz ice cream cones. All within the past  4 days thankyaverymuch. Don’t judge me, or do. Either way I’m probably going to eat more ice cream tonight.
  4. I am also thankful for smoothies. I have been loving on smoothies lately and this one was especially delicious. Frozen mango, pineapple and strawberry pieces mixed with milk and strawberry yogurt. Heaven in a glass.
  5. I am also thankful for books! I love reading books especially fiction, trashy romance novels. I have been trying to read more books lately and just finished this one. A great read if anyone is looking for an only semi-trashy romance novel.
  6. Finally I am thankful for 3 day weekends. I fly to Nashville Saturday morning to hang out with my boyfriend and his two sisters and their two friends. Its going to be an awesome 3 day weekend. I am NOT thankful for the fact that they all get to go on Friday and I have to go by myself on Saturday due to my lack of vacation days but cest le vie.
What are you Thankful for this Thursday?
Any places I should make sure to visit in Nashville?
