Thursday Thoughts

July 26, 2012 at 12:17 pm 10 comments

Hello hello! I have so many thoughts and random tangents to share with you, so it’s perfect that today is Thursday because I can share my randomness “Thursday Thoughts” style. That way, it doesn’t seem so random. πŸ˜‰

1. I’ve been working on a little project lately.

It’s my 30 Before 30 list! Basically, these are all the things I want to do/accomplish before I turn 30. (Which is only a little over 6 years from now!) I’ll share the list in detail in another post.

2. Yesterday, my mom and I went to see The Sound of Music at a local theater.

My brother Drew was in it, as was his girlfriend Suzanne. He played Uncle Max and she was Liesl. There were a lot of other people in the show who I knew, and it was so so good! I loved every minute of it! Every. 180. Minutes. Yes, it was a 3 hour show. But, still good! πŸ˜‰

3. The other day I was at the Salvation Army browsing with my mom (yes we do that together), and I found this…

Y’all, this movie used to scare the poopie out of me. I almost bought it!

4. My dog Pierre likes to cuddle, and if you get him really good and asleep, his mouth with drop open like a human. It’s hilar.

Also, he thinks he’s a bat.

The quality of that picture is impeccable.

5. Have you ever been on a 150 ft slip n’ slide?

This was the one we had at our annual Water War for our youth. They spend hours on this thing!

It’s amazing.

6. This is a picture I took yesterday (at the Water War) of my friend Jeremy looking/being awkward amongst the youth.

He plays in our praise band and comes to help out with youth functions. We love him even if he looks like a creeper amongst children. πŸ˜‰ Not really. He actually has a music blog called Vinyl Spinning where he talks about the music he’s listening to, the instruments he plays, and all sorts of other music related things. Go check out his blog! (You’re welcome Jer-bear πŸ˜‰)

7. I like to lay on the sidewalk outside my house when I get done with a run.

After this morning’s HOT 3 mile tempo run.

The reason I do this, is because it gives me a chance to cool off a little with out being attacked by licking dogs who want all the sweat on your body. That gets a little gross.

8. My breakfast this morning was AMAZEBALLZ.

3/4 cups of plain chobani, vanilla and splenda, strawberries, cinnamon, and a drizzle of honey. OMGDELISH.

9. This happened today.

So yeah, all of a sudden they were all over me. It was intense.

10. I saved this one for last because I was excited about it! I got nominated for the Liebster Blog Award. Thanks for the nomination Holly! πŸ™‚

The point of this IMO, is to award a blogger who has less than 200 followers and let them know that you enjoy their blog! With all of the wonderful blogs out there, it’s easy to get lost in the crowd, so letting someone know that their blog is worth reading is a great way to build them up.

The rules of the Liebster Blog goes as follows: 1) Paste icon onto blog post 2) Nominate 5 blogs that have less than 200 followers and 3) let them know in a comment

I honestly don’t know how to figure out how many followers another person’s blog has, so I just wanted to pick some of my favorite blogs that I follow from WordPress plus some friends from home! Here are the blogs I’m nominating!

My friend Jeremy at Vinyl Spinning

Emily at Perfection Isn’t Happy

My friend Anna at The McCrary Family

Alex at The Run Within

Nikki at Life After Swimming


And this concludes Thursday Thoughts! πŸ™‚
