Thinking Out Loud #36

Happy Thursday. Since yesterday was a holiday here and I don’t work Fridays, I took today off to make a nice looonnng weekend.

I’m spending that long weekend camping with family. Does it get any better than that? Since I’m away and I’m never prepared enough to pre-write posts (except this one) there won’t be a FYI Friday post tomorrow. Bummer, I know but check out my previous posts that you may have missed. 

Now onto my rambling as I join Amanda for Thinking Out Loud Thursday.

1. Today officially marks the beginning of Stampede in Calgary. In case you’ve never heard of it, Stampede is a 10 day rodeo & festival. 

Although I’m away this weekend I’ll be sure to catch up on some Stampeding festivities next weekend. Some people hate Stampede because our city is taken over by tourist, people are all dressed as cowboys, the country music is blaring & half the city is drunk. But me, I love it! Any excuse to break out my cowboy hat & boots is fine by me. 

2. As part of Stampede there are a series of concerts. I am a huge country music fan. My friend was able to snag some floor seats to Miranda Lambert and asked if Tom and I to go. Umm…yes! I can’t wait to belt out Mama’s Broken Heart. 

3. Last week on Instagram, I showed off the business cards I just ordered!

business cards

I love how they turned out. I got them printed from MOO, they are really great quality and came incredibly fast.

I only bought 100 and then immediately regretted my decision after I gave away about 10 at a Running Room clinic I taught and I have two more of those clinics before BlogFest. So in a panic I had to place another order. I could have saved myself a lot of money if I had ordered at once. If you are looking for business cards I really highly recommend MOO and you can use my referral link to get 10% off your order.

4. Speaking of BlogFest it’s only 2 weeks away! I am SO excited for it. Although to tell you the truth I’m a little worried I won’t be able to walk after it. I’m not used to 3 workouts a day. I’ve been trying to get in a variety of workouts so that no one workout will leave me with that awkward sore limp while I’m there. 

Although I have a feeling after the workout with Jillian Michaels that might be inevitable.


That’s all I’ve got for today. I’ve got camping on my brain and lots of packing to do (wrote this on Tuesday).

Have a great weekend and Happy Independence Day to my American Friends!

Country Music – Love it or Hate it? What do you have planned for the weekend?

Homemade No Juice Popsicles

Raspberry Mojito Popsicle

Last week I wrote tips on staying hydrated during the summer. Afterwards I realized I forgot one great way to stay hydrated, popsicles! A popsicle on a hot day is refreshing however most popsicles you find in the grocery stores are glorified frozen sugar & food colouring. Not exactly a health food. The good thing…
