Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving Day is here!
And we have a LOT to be thankful for.
Here’s just a few but not limited to
because we should be thankful every day!

For family. For friends.
For laughter and happiness.
For sunrise. For sunset.
For having a job and health.
For you, readers and bloggers.
For I won’t be here without y’all.
Thank you.

I promise to catch up on all my missed posts.
Promise. Promise.
Till then, Happy Thanksgiving.

Jared, Painting, Red Dawn, 5k Race

Got to see Jared last night. Gave me a tour of his apartment, had a beer or two and talked, showed me something he’s working on … music wise, then went to Cane’s for dinner. Sometimes some friendships just work. I’ve only seen him one other time in 5 years and that was a good month or so ago. Love when you’re able to just talk. It’s kind of funny actually. Back when we were in high school I was the talker and he would listen and only talked when he felt necessary. Our roles are reversed now. I’m more reserved and he’s more outgoing. It works. Surprising how 5 years can change a person.

Mum tied a bow around Rocky’s head … he’s Roxie now.

One of the best movies.
Chris Hemsworth. That is all.

The sky during my 5k Run.

I used this run as my 5k Race time for the virtual Gobbler Gallop For The Love of The Kids. 00:47:31. Time might suck for y’all real runners but it’s better than I thought. Especially since I started running again 2 weeks and 2 days ago … and skipping 3 of my scheduled running days due to going to San Antonio. Yes I know. No excuses so to me I’m just happy I finished. Fracture is a little twingy but other than that I feel great.

Tonight is baking time and prepping for tomorrow’s Thanksgiving Dinner. Eeep!!

And hopefully in the morning I’ll be able to go to 24 hour Fitness and try out the Yoga-lates class. Yay for 3 day passes! 🙂

Hope you’re all having a great Thanksgiving Eve! ❤

Went out for Happy Hour with a big gang of people.
Only took this picture. Whoops.
Had lots of laughs.

SUNDAY:

Breakfast at McAllister’s.
With some awesome people.
Went home. No pictures.
I was too sad. Driving home gets harder.
Every time I don’t want to leave.
The people there are AWESOME.

Cannot wait to go back …
Not sure when but I’m ready!

Too Much Food

IMG_20121110_131650

Been writing music again.
Not sure what to do with them though.
But it helps me when I go through things
Or when I’m bored.

IMG_20121110_204526

Been training for my 5k and had an ice bath for the feet.
As long as I finish, I don’t mind the time.
But hopefully I’ll finish before 45 minutes.

IMG_20121111_134001

Did you know they make these for dogs?
Ribs, Sausage, & Chicken Drumstick lookalikes.
Cute.

IMG_20121111_183133

One of the bestest foods ever.
Dumpling with soup in it.
Xiao Long Bao. Go try it.

IMG_20121111_195826

Chocolate Chip Cookie Pretzel Bars from scratch.
For the potluck at work …

IMG_20121112_125419

That had a mile long of food.
1/2 a mile of desserts.
Jk … but really.

IMG_20121112_132238

Starbucks with some coworkers after Potluck.
Thanks Bossman.
Sat and talked for a good 30 mins or so.
Fun stuff cuz work was over for me by then. 😉

IMG_20121112_152751

Went to the eye doctor who gave me all this stuff … for free.
And because she knew I was a recent college grad,
I didn’t have to pay for some images I had to take for the eyes.
Thanks doc.

IMG_20121112_180202

Always the best for last.
The view on the drive home.
Love getting to work by 5am
So I can go home early.
No cars.

Cannot wait for Thursday!
It’s gonna be a good weekend!

I Love Hockey

Poodle Cats … have you ever heard of such?
Well there is and I want that one in the picture.

IMG_20121108_221032

What did I cross off my bucket list?
Going to a Hockey Game.
NHL is on a lockout so the minors still count.
Thanks Mallory & Lauren F. for going with me!
Our favorite part? Checking out the guys through the internet. Teehee.
And watching them slam into the pixie glass.
#31 Matt Hackett 😉
If you look at the second picture in that collage you’ll see a penis bell.
Sorry … it was funny.
Hope one day I get to go to a NHL game!

IMG_20121108_234745

I finally changed my own guitar strings!
Last time I tried it popped in my face and I got scared of it.
But I did it!! *Pat on back* 🙂

Carmel Brulee Frap from Starbucks
Too sweet but quite good.

IMG_20121109_131430

While driving I saw this.
Makes me miss high school and college.
Prank wars were so much fun.

IMG_20121109_193737

Went grocery shopping with Mum & June and saw this.
WTF!

Hope your weekend started out amazing!

Spoiled Coworkers

 

IMG_20121107_112359

I entered in Hollie’s coffee a day contest. I don’t mind if I don’t win.
I was just wondering what category Starbucks Wanna Be would be under.
Hence the face and the confused teddy bear. I got this coffee for free at work. Buy 9 get 1 free.
They only serve a few off the menu. No seasonal or anything. Better than nothing?

IMG_20121107_193322

I baked some Peanut Butter Cookies for the coworkers tonight.
They are super spoiled … obviously.
They smell super delicious and I kinda don’t wanna share.

Tomorrow is my Friday! AND I get to cross something off my bucket list.
You’ll hear about that tomorrow. Can’t wait to share!
Happy Thursday y’all!
Stay Positive and Thank Good Thoughts!

There’s Always A First

First things first!
I actually have my own ads on other people’s blog!
Wanna know where? Of course you do …

300x100 (1)

I won And They Call Me Mommy … ad space off of a Giveaway!
And now it’s up and at ‘em. It’s my first one ever and it went up yesterday.
She was quick to put it up! I kept it simple and just used my header.
Check out her page and stay awhile.

175x300

Country Roots City Living is giving away free ad spaces for the rest of the year!
Oh oh … Thank you, Lindsey! She’s very patient.
I gave her the one from the first one but it was the wrong dimensions.
I emailed her and she said just resend it and she’ll fix it. I had time to make a new one.
It’s a little sldflasdfer but it’ll work for now. Check out her page.
Seriously, I ask so many questions about this and other stuff and she’s so helpful!

IMG_20121106_073839

This morning on my drive to work.
A crack in the sky! AHH!
I don’t like driving in the light but I guess it’s nice to see pretty sky.

IMG_20121106_172633

I went to Happy Hour with these two beauties.
Mallory & Samantha
Always a good time with them.
