Thursday Thoughts (TOL #56): It feels like winter

Good morning! Happy Thursday! We are one day closer to the weekend and I don’t know about you, but that makes me very happy.

Actually, there are many reasons to be happy today! As I was starting to type this blog post up on this fine Thursday morning, joy. came on, which always brightens up my spirits and makes me wants to dance whenever I hear it no matter what kind of mood I am in. If you haven’t heard it yet, go listen! I promise you it will do nothing other than make you feel all happy and dance-y inside. 😉

I’m popping in today for another round of Thinking Out Loud, because you all know I love nothing more than to spill some random thoughts on here.


Yesterday I felt like I was all over the place. I worked, came home for lunch, went back to work, went over to my sister’s house, back to work, ran some errands, and then finally went home. It definitely made the day go by fast, that’s for sure!

Today is super freezing. It is 30 degrees outside and it says that it feels like 24 degrees with the wind chill. We have a wind advisory until later this morning, so that is fun. I go outside and feel like I am going to be taken away by the wind and go for a ride in the clouds like Mary Poppins. Winter is apparently here, guys….and we still have our AC in our window. (Major face palm). I’m hoping Michael can take that baby out tonight if he gets off work at regular time, but I don’t know about that.

Michael had to stay at work late yesterday and only got home around 8, which meant I was kind of disappointed, but the ONLY good thing about it (if there is anything good about it) is that I got to catch up on Real Housewives of Orange County. And I am just going to say it, I still can’t stand Shannon. I mean, I feel badly about her divorce and everything but she isn’t being a very nice lady to the new girls and she is totally making everything about her. I agree with Tamra when she says Shannon is always complaining and always negative. That can totally take a toll on you, especially as her friend. And just like Gina said, it is sad. She is sad. PS. I love Gina.

My hands are as dry as sand paper. It is disgusting. And yes, I literally mean sand paper. That is what they feel like to me. It is not so glamorous and I can’t stop putting lotion on them. Which brings me back to my point that winter is pretty much here. This weather change is not so fun.

This morning started with a 20 minute circuit targeting mainly my abs, a 3.5 mile run/incline walk, and started rereading You Are A Badass. I must admit, I really couldn’t get into it the first time I read it a while ago, and I usually get put off when books refer to God as “the Universe”…but when I tried to read it the first time around, I only got through a quarter of it and stopped reading.So, I am giving it another chance, because I feel like I need some hard core truths spoken to me right now. I’m glad I gave it another chance, and I have high hopes that I will finish it this time around.

If you follow me on Instagram, you already heard my issues with the Victoria’s Secret website yesterday. I got some emails alerting me that their sleep & lingerie were 40% off, and their PINK tees were 3 for $60…so you know I went on there and put things in my shopping cart before lunch, only to get back to work after my lunch to place my order and find the website was “temporarily unavailable”. BOO!! I could have taken that as a sign of ‘I don’t really need those things’ but after a couple minutes of refreshing the page over and over again, it was back up and running so I was able to place my order. I got two sleep shirts (or as Michael calls them, grandma jammies…rude), and three PINK tees.

Once again, I didn’t sleep good last night. Probably because I still have yet to get a new pillow like I had talked about yesterday, and I just couldn’t get comfortable. I think I finally fell asleep around midnight or something after tossing and turning for hours. So you can imagine the horror this morning when I went to start my car (since it is 30 degrees) before getting a coffee and seeing a red danger sign about coolant or whatever made me freak out a little bit at the thought that I wouldn’t be able to get a coffee this morning. But instead of having that freak out when I saw that red danger message, I looked in the user’s manual (see, I can be an adult sometimes) and read that an emergency could happen if this coolant is low and the car could probably blow up, so I called my Dad. (Okay, maybe I am exaggerating. The car wouldn’t blow up right then, but more than likely it meant that something bad could happen, which makes my dramatic self come to the conclusion that it will blow up.) But like always, it was Dad to the rescue! He quickly brought over some coolant and fixed it up in no time. My coffee was had and all was right in the world again! Ha. 😉

Thanks to these frigid cold temperatures, I am bundled up in a blanket scarf, boot socks, and my Ugg boots for the day. Hopefully this will help keep me somewhat warm in this winter like weather. Is it cold where you are? 

Have a beautiful Thursday! Xoxo ♥♥
