Tag Archives: thankful


I started out today super bummed out because I have inherited the plague (yes, I am being dramatic) from my work. Shortly after having a pity party for myself, I heard the news of the shooting in Connecticut. Talk about putting things in perspective…

I just want to say that my heart goes out to all of you affected in any way by these events. It is sickening. You will be in my prayers.

Instead of focusing on the sad, I feel that my heart needs to focus on the good going on all around. So, it’s time for what I’m thankful for!

This man.

My world. My partner in crime. My best friend ever. Love you so much.

My family.

No matter how many miles separate us, I thank God for each and every one of my family members every single day.

My new Seattle friends.



You guys have made me feel so welcome here. I seriously look forward to all our get togethers, runs, convos, races, etc. I’m so thankful I have met each and every one of you.

My health.

Because my body puts up with my antics and stays healthy, I am able to pursue so many things I love. Running, spinning, shopping… And so much more

My job.

I freaking love my job and the people I work with. I feel so blessed to go to work everyday doing something I love. And not only that, but my opinions are valued and listened to. It’s such a rare thing and I really value it.

What are you thankful for?

A lot to be thankful for

Did any one else’s long weekend absolutely fly by? Can we get a do over up in here?!

Thanksgiving Thursday was amazing. At kind of the last minute, hubs and I had to cancel our plans to go out of town, so it was just us two. Hubs ended up having to work all weekend. Poor thing. Such a hardworking man. Luckily, he was able to break away for a bit to have a nice breakfast and dinner.

When we woke up, I made the most freaking delicious (not to toot my own horn or anything but toooooot) French toast casserole.


Uhm, yes… Amazeballs. It was so filling that we just skipped lunch and went straight for dinner next. I went to Pier 1 and got some things to make our table look so romanticle.


On the menu was stuffing, salad, green bean casserole, rolls, and STEAK.


Yeah, we decided to ditch the idea of cooking a turkey. They kinda terrify me. Steak on the other hand, sign me up! It was a wonderful meal. We need to eat at our table more often. We spent the whole time chatting about anything and everything. I seriously love this man.


Ok, I’m done being a sap.

Friday, I went Black Friday shopping… FROM MY COUCH. Stores are giving the same deals online that they give in the store, so why the heck not?!

American Eagle had 40% off of EVERYTHING!


Christmas outfit COMPLETE!

I also seriously scored at personalizationmall.com. They had 30% off the whole store, plus I had a google offer that gave me $40 worth of stuff for $20, plus I had a 10% coupon code, PLUS ebates had 15% cash back! Yeah… I scored.

I also had one of the best runs in a longggg time. I did 3 miles in 31:28 and loved every second of it. Major runners high.

Saturday, I decided to brave the insanity that was downtown Seattle to do some shopping! It also meant I could go to the Seattle Marathon expo! At the expo, I got to see my long lost Ragnar teammate Kim!!


I adore this lady! She is so fab that decorated her race bib just for me!


Yeah, she is rad.

The rest of the weekend was spent cleaning, watching movies, and being über lazy. It. Was. Glorious. I also was able to get another kick ass run in on Sunday. 3.2 miles in 33:51. I did some killer intervals but my legs loved going fast. They didn’t want to stop! Gotta love that!

Hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving weekend!
