Thinking Out Loud Thursday

I've decided I'm going to participate in this week's Thinking Out Loud Thursday hosted by Amanda from Running with Spoons. 

1. Respect the swim, and the turtle pose. 

Seriously, I took a yoga class today and then swam about 15 laps in the pool immediately afterward.  It was amazing.  I haven't taken a yoga class in months upon months, and it was exactly what my aching IT band needed.  I'm hoping to make yoga a weekly thursday tradition.  I'm not very flexible and it shows when I'm taking the class. Dang tight muscles.  I decided that I would follow yoga with a swim, and it was a great idea. I was out of breath after a few laps. Its amazing how strong you can be in one sport and then completely fall apart in another. Good night of cross training.

2. Chris's school pictures came in, and I immediately framed one and put it on my desk.

Hahaha, how awesome is that picture?  I just can't believe that nobody asked me about it. I'm sure you also noticed the hawk pinned to the bulletin board behind the frame... and why yes, it does say, "Don't be hawkward, follow group expectations". I guess you just had to be social group.

3. I ate my weight in chocolate today.

I couldn't help it. I woke up this morning and couldn't fathom the thought of going to work this morning. I did...but I think my eyes were glued shut until I walked up to the front door. I also woke up a little cranky, so the first thing I ate (as I've been trying to bring my breakfasts to school in order to keep the hunger at bay in the late morning) was a piece of chocolate. and then another piece. and then another piece.  An hour a later, a handful of M&M's here and there. You know how it goes. 

4. I absolutely love and can't stand Vanderpump Rules. 

I'm really behind in my TV watching, since I haven't been getting home from school and exercising until about 7:30 most nights. I am currently catching up on a few episodes and I think the only reason I watch is because they are so beautiful, but they are just. so. awful. as humans. 

Click the link to figure out yours. I took the quiz on buzzfeed and this is what it came up with.
I'm kind of surprised by this, because the last time I was in LA, I hated it there. I definitely think I belong in California because the sun, the shine, the happy vibes are calling to me all the time, but I'm a Northeast gal through and through because I can't imagine being that far away from my family. Maybe someday, but now's not the time. Or maybe, just maybe, I missed out when I should have gone in my 20's. Who knows.

Let's chat:
What's in YOUR brain this Thursday? What city did buzzfeed pick for you?


  1. I've got African in my blood, so give my Cape Town any day...

  2. LOL, I got Rio because I was "born to party" which I find hysterical but I am probably the least "partier" that I know. I don't even drink really. On the Beyonce question I was searching for the "no Beyonce" but that didnt' exist. I bet that would have knocked me off the party wagon.

    I am totally understanding #3...I basically did the same thing yesterday, but it was donuts. Sigh.
