Happy Thursday friends. As always, I am joining Amanda for some Thinking Out Loud today.
1. This post is going to be pretty short because I’m writing it first thing in the morning today. Why? Because last night, I got asked to go out for some drinks with friends. Right away my first reaction was to say no because I have a million things on the to-do list. But as I thought about it, I realized that I’d much rather be out living my life than sitting at home blogging about it. So out I went.
I didn’t end up getting home until 8:30. Tom and I made a dinner that consisted of toast and broccoli slaw, watched Big Brother and called it a night.
As much as it stresses me out today that I didn’t get work done last night, it was totally worth it.
2. This weekend I’m heading out for my last camping trip of the season. This time I’m going with a group of my high school friends. We try to plan one camping trip together each summer and I think this will be the perfect way to close out the summer and the camping season. We don’t all get a chance to get together very often so I know it will be a lot of fun and probably involve some shenanigans.
3. One of my sisters recently started selling Stella & Dot jewelry. I love their stuff but because I’m cheap I’ve never bought any. I decided to go for it this time and order myself some stuff.
I’m wearing my new jewelry today and I feel so fancy!
4. Being the true runners that we are, Tom and I signed up for the Rock the House Run the morning that we leave for New Zealand. I think it will be great to get in some exercise before sitting on a plane for the loooonnnggg ride.
We are also doing this race as a way to raise funds for the Ronald McDonald House, which is an organization that helps families with sick children by providing them a place to stay while the children are in the hospital. If you’d like to help us out and donate, check out our page here. Every little bit helps and is much appreciated.
That’s it for today, hope you have a wonderful Thursday!
