Thankful Thursday

It’s been a very busy week so now that I’m finally sitting down to think about my many blessings this week I’m realizing just how sleepy I am. Needless to say, this week’s post will be short and sweet. Haircut I didn’t get a fancy new haircut but I did get those nasty split ends cut off and routine waxing. Seriously, there is something very wonderful about not having to tweeze one’s eyebrows even if it’s just for a few days. More energy I feel like my new dosage of Levothyroxine is actually making a difference in my energy levels. Sure, I’ve been tired lately but it’s been due to lack of sleep and not simply because my thyroid is being funky. I’ve been able to workout more this past week than I’ve been able to recently and I’ve been able to strength train. This gives me confidence that I can do this again. Training Speaking of the gym, I signed up with a personal trainer. I’ve wanted to for a long time, and even if it’s just for the summer, I need a kick in the butt to get things going again. I’ve taken one of Laura’s TRX classes […]

Nice Weekends This weekend was my weekend off and I try to spend those weekends in Lexington with Cory. This weekend we met up Friday night for the Pride Parade in Louisville. This year seemed a little bit more rowdy than normal, at least there were more flying candy, beads, and frisbees (yes, frisbees!) than I remember. I love going to Louisville’s Pride Parade because it’s always so inspiring to see people out being themselves. I’m not sure why gay marriage is still an issue but I’m happy to be out supporting people who deserve the same rights that I take for granted. Saturday we got a few things done, napped (my favorite thing to do these days), I went to the MAC counter and bought a new lipstick, lip liner, and eye brow makeup, and we went to see “Before Midnight” at the Kentucky Theater. Quite honestly, I’m still thinking about it. I haven’t seen a good movie like that in a long time. It made me cry a couple times and it had a really sad tone but it was really good. Good makeup days Tuesday I had some down time for the first time in…forever! So I […]

There are some weeks when you’re in a crummy mood and you dwell too much on negative things when there are so many positive things that surround you. This, unfortunately, has been one of those weeks. I’m realizing it’s hard to stay irritated and negative when you start thinking positively. This will be a good weekly exercise for me and you should try it too. Free movie passes! Every now and I then I get free passes to movies and the majority of the time I’m too lazy to drive an hour to Louisville to see the movie or I have other obligations. Cory and I were both interested in seeing “This is the End” so I e-mailed him as soon as I got the movie passes. It was entertaining but I think both of us would’ve been a little bit disappointed if we had paid for it. Family Time! I haven’t been able to spend a lot of time with my sister and nieces lately and I got to see them a few times this past week. I helped my sister clean and organize some parts of her house. We cleaned a room and then this happened: I also […]

Happy One Year! Cory and I celebrated our one year anniversary on Friday. The whole weekend was awesome really. Friday, we stayed in Louisville, had sushi at Caviar, followed by dessert at Homemade Ice Cream & Pie Kitchen. Saturday, we went to see Star Trek: Into Darkness; which both of us really enjoyed, and had dinner at a steak house. I eat steak maybe twice a year and it really, really, really hit the spot this weekend. I wish we could have more weekends like this because it was wonderful and relaxing. It’s funny that I took photos of our food but never thought to take one of US. ha ha ha. Dance recital I got to see my niece at her dance recital. If you can’t tell from the photo, she was absolutely adorable! Good makeup days Thank god for good makeup days! I almost always wear makeup to work but yesterday I put forth a little more effort because I had the time. I turned into a makeup addict around April of last year when I found a great foundation I enjoyed wearing and I’ve been slowly been building a nice collection ever since. I still have a […]
