Thoughts on a Thursday

It’s Thursday which means a couple of things…

  • It’s Friday-eve (which means Friday is right around the corner which also means that a glorious three-day weekend is bringing up the rear. I think that deserves a TGIT, no?)
  • In honor of it being TGIT, you most definitely need to go out tonight and celebrate. Or you could pull a ‘me’ and stay in with a box of wine and some Game of Thrones. Both equally awesome.
  • It’s time for the latest edition of “Thoughts on a Thursday.” 🙂
  1. I led a writing workshop this morning and one of the prompts I gave my students to get their creative juices flowing was in regards to their school and work: What is one thing that motivates you to work hard and do your best? I got so many great responses, but my favorite by far was from a student who said that her driving force, her inspiration was….cookies. Obviously I had to epically high-five her (and then nominate her for President 2016. The world needs more people, more leaders like her–and more cookies. Just all of the cookies).
  2. Hot damn, guys! How is it already September?!!? There are only 4 more months left of 2015 which is total crazy pants. My grandparents/parents were right: life really does speed up the older you get. If it’s okay, I think I’m just gonna stay 28 forever.
  3. I just realized that I prefer to chew my food on mostly the right side of my mouth? Is this a thing? Or am I just weird. Wait, don’t answer that.
  4. Speaking of which, there is no greater feeling in the world than finally, FINALLY getting that piece of Snickers bar that was stuck in your teeth unstuck. Rewarding myself with a Twix bar later.
  5. My fall softball league starts in a week and I am way too excited. Like, ‘I’ve already laid out my glove, shoes, and lucky underwear’ excited. I’m playing two nights a week this season which means this girl has got to invest in a really good knee brace. And Advil. Just all of the Advil. My grandparents/parents were right: It really sucks getting old.
  6. I just found out that if you were to sit down and watch every Harry Potter movie, with 5 minutes allowed in between each one for pee/snack breaks, it would take a little over 22 hours. I am going to have to do this at some point. And by some point I mean this weekend obviously. Who wants to come over (and bring popcorn?)
  7. These sunrises never get old. Denver, you’re alright you know that?11059887_10100760119992092_656416317147637831_n

Thoughts on a Thursday

1. I’ve got a fever, guys. SPRING FEVER! The last few days here in Denver have been absolutely glorious and it’s defintely making me even more excited that spring is just around the corner which means warmer weather, baseball, cute dresses, baseball, hikes in the mountains, baseball, baseball, and oh hey, baseball!

2. Speaking of baseball, this is the first year in a long time that I am going to miss the Brewers’ Opening Day in Milwaukee (just 25 more days!!!). I just started my new job and unfortunately the ‘ol vacation time doesn’t kick in quite yet, however you better believe I will be watching and cheering and rooting on my guys from afar (although I do find it ironic that they’re playing the Rockies). Good news is that they’re coming out here this summer for a three-game series (if you need me June 19-21, I’ll be at Coors Field double-fisting a hot dog and an ice-cold lemonade).

3. Last night before I went to bed, I haphazardly threw my hair up into a messy bun just to get it out of my face and it ended up looking amazing! So naturally this morning when I tried to replicate the chic “just rolled out of bed” look, I ended up looking like Pigpen (but without the whole dust storm thing).


4.  This proposal. Not gonna lie, I was crying even before he got to the actual proposal part. SO. DARN. CUTE.

5. It was in this proposal video that I first discovered the amazingness that is Anthem Lights. I’ve had these guys on serious repeat the past few days. Obsessed. Their song Best Thing will give you all the feels. Listen now, thank me later.

6. So there’s this game called Settlers of Catan and apparently, it’s just the best thing since sliced cheese. And apparently I’m the only one who has never heard of or played the silly thing. I’m getting together tomorrow night with some friends to finally play it and will report back on how gouda it really is (see what I did there?).

7. Anyone else eat freshly made Rice Krispie treats for breakfast? No? Just me? Hey, stick anything in a bowl with a fork and you’ve got a meal. #SnapCracklePop


8. It just hit me that in about a month I will be turning 28. HOW IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE?!?!?! I’ve just decided that I’m going to stay 27 forever. I’ll let you know how that works out.

9. If I look over my shoulder while walking at night, I’m not afraid of getting mugged, I’m just checking to see if it’s safe to fart. FYI.

10. TOMORROW’S FRIYAY!!!! ‘Nuff said.

Have a great Thursday, y’all! 🙂
