Today I’m thankful for more warm weather, wearing a skirt with no tights!, half the department out of the office, a good run at the always lovely Railroad Park, finally writing some thank you notes, the delicious shrimp and grits Blake made for dinner, the fact that Blake cam actually cook since I can’t, and chocolate pie sent straight from heaven.
Every Conversation With Auburn Fans Since January... →
dead. so true.
Update on my first week of training and... →
Today I am thankful for MacDos for helping me avoid too bad of a hangover, naps alllll day, sore muscles, downloading a million apps while relaxing in the bed, Blake making pizza, videos of the dog and an early bedtime.
Today I am thankful for rocking my first long training run (4 miles,) beautiful 70 degree days in January, good friends visiting from Atlanta, a trip to the motherland (Tuscaloosa,) margaritas and cheese dip with Sister!, Bama basketball wins - 1st place in the SEC, and a good night at the bars.
Today I am thankful fir dinner dates and Johnny Rays barbecue, super casual Friday at work, finding a $50 purse I had been lusting after for 75% off, a clean bedroom, and going to bed at 10:30 pm.
Today I’m thankful for meeting other team members, fun work events, super casual Friday emails, margaritas and chips, leaving work right at 5:02, donations from strangers, 30 Rock, and soft trapeze tees.
Today I am thankful for another soft sweater (I have decided everything I wear to work this week must have soft in it’s description,) stocking up on groceries, cocoa roasted almonds, pay day!, deals and coupons, and the West Wing.

A conservative Christian website based in Cullman,...
They really don’t know me, huh?
I want to share that link of the best of Amanda Bynes’ Twitter but I don’t think anyone here at work would think it was funny. One girl (who is my age) told me two days ago that she didn’t buy Groupons because she doesn’t understand them. What??? But seriously. I’d forgotten all about AB’s ridiculous tweets until that link resurfaced this morning and now...
Does anyone use Pinterest? →
I’m just starting to get into it and am looking for boards to follow. Let me know!
Paying It Forward
Last year, the wonderful Suzanne put out the call for anyone who was interested in receiving a care package from her. I quickly shot her an email and crossed my fingers for a bit of Tumblr love. Being the kind-hearted gal that she is, she ended up sending out goodies to each and every person who emailed her. You could tell that she put a lot of thought into the sweet treats she sent out, and asked...
this is why i am participating in TNT →
Miss this sweet boy today.
Today I am thankful for fluttery butterfly dresses on a gray January day, a Groupon for my TNT registration fee (best Groupon I’ve ever bought,) finishing 15 press releases, my company for planning fun events like chili cookoffs so the all female PR dept. can decorate aprons with feather boas, our President, organized coupons, and my very first TNT donation from livemylove!! (wish I could...
small idiom bangle at kate spade →
Do you enjoy Kate Spade bracelets? Here’s a deal I snagged a month or so ago that is back now. The pink bangle is on sale for $17. They don’t have a picture of it on the site, but it looks like this and says Tickled Pink inside. It’s usually $42 and I don’t know why it keeps going back and forth between $17 and $42. You can also sign up for the Kate Spade email newsletter...
Today I am thankful for getting started on my TNT fundraising (can NOT procrastinate on this,) soft comfy sweaters, getting to leave work early, catching up on friends with the phone, highlighter yellow running tees, runs on the dreadmill to get ready for Saturday, good emails and Baked Lays for dinner.
Today I am thankful for sleeping in, super soft sweaters all on sale, even more napping, starting to make fundraising plans, another delicious dinner courtesy of Blake, trying to train the dog to sleep in the bed, the Steelers being Super Bowl bound!!, and loads upon loads of clean laundry.

Today I am thankful for making a decision to something HUGE in 2011, cheap and delicious Mexican food, my mom and sister for being the best company to enjoy said Mexican food with, a new soft circle scarf, a stretchy jacket for my upcoming 6:30 am training runs on Saturdays, Alabama basketball beating Auburn in their shiny new stadium, naps on the couch, and a night in watching a movie with Blake.
Lesson I learned today
Don’t ever pay full price for anything at Old Navy. Better yet, don’t even pay the ridiculously discounted prices in their weekly sales (ex. $14.50 for a $34.50 sweater.) It will just make you angry when you go there two weeks later and see those sweaters on clearance for $8.99 plus an extra 40 or 50% off. Then you will buy more of those sweaters for $5 each. It will be made better...
Looking through my Team In Training information and trying not to get overwhelmed. Goals for today: make a list of potential donors, draft my fundraising letter, get the paper, dye my hair, and finish all my laundry. Oh, and cheer on the Steelers!

Damn I love beating Auburn.
Team In Training
