Thursday Thoughts

May 10, 2012

Hey everyone! It’s THURSDAY! Guess what that means?! You’ve almost made it to the weekend! Haha Thursday was always one of my favorite days because you’re so close! Although I’m in Kansas City enjoying my break from school and work, I still have plenty of thoughts to share with you. The brain hasn’t been turned off completely, just focusing on more fun things!


1. I love these bracelets that I saw on pinterest! I’m adding them to my “To Do” list for this summer, I’m hoping to make a few! My favorite is the teal and gold one, the second picture.

great update!

2. This is a great quote and something that I remind myself of when I think – why don’t I have toned a toned stomach or back, why aren’t I faster, why didn’t I get better grades? Did I really put in the effort?


3. I’ve been DYING For a lemon bar! When I was younger they were my favorite dessert, and I found this gluten free recipe! I just might have to try it…

Lemon #Yogurt Cake - #gluten-free from From

4. So pretty. So majestic.


4. I love this dress. This is the kind of thing I imagine myself wearing when I’m “grown up,” aka have a real job and have events to go to that would require such a lovely dress.

lace lace lace!

5. How cool is this idea? I definitely want to try it, however I’m going to have a hard time finding a sock to match my hair color…

SOCK BUN!  And sock bun curls!  YAY!

6. This is a quote I say to myself whenever I’m doing anything that I start to think is too hard, or I can’t complete. I definitely said it over and over again in my head during many long runs. Plus, I LOVE this movie…

Think: Marathon. I LOVE this movie.

7. So remember my deep and undying love for Peeta (aka Josh Hutchinson?):


Um… yea. Well I discovered he was born in 1992… which makes him younger than my little brother. And at least a year from turning 21… *sigh* Time to let go of that one. But don’t worry:


and he’s also a redhead. Smile



Any projects on your To Do list this summer?

What’s your favorite animal? Mine are the elephant and the blue whale

  2. May 10, 2012 7:26 am

    He’ll be 21 this year if he was born in 1991!!! That’s not bad at all – you go girl! haha!

  3. May 10, 2012 7:26 am

    I love the black dress!

    My favorite animals are dogs, but I love elephants, too!

    The sock bun is amazing! I recently tried it after seeing it on pinterest and I’m in love. It’s so easy. You don’t have to have a sock that’s exactly your hair color, just something close. If you roll it well, you won’t see the sock underneath the hair.

      Good to know that it works!!! Haha I still don’t know what sock would even be close to my hair color! I might have to hit up target today…

    I love those bracelets as well! So beautiful.

  6. May 10, 2012 8:22 am

  7. May 10, 2012 8:23 am

    I’m in love with bracelets right now. The more the better 🙂 As for animals, I love black bears and penguins.

  8. May 10, 2012 9:31 am

    I love moose. Maybe I will get to see one when I am back home in Maine next week. Projects-update my teaching licenses.

    I want that dress- it’s so pretty!! I just need to have somewhere to wear it!

  10. May 10, 2012 10:40 am

    love love love the peeta/katniss meme 🙂 I was also born in 1992 = my obsession with josh hutcherson has increased exponentially now that i know that!

      hahaha yes, you’re allowed to have a huge crush on him without feeling like a cougar. Who thought you could feel like a cougar at 24?!? Haha

  11. May 10, 2012 11:44 am

    I love the black dress – so classy! Favorite animal = giraffes! I think I like them because they are tall and I am so short! 🙂

    • May 10, 2012 12:36 pm

      Giraffes are so cool! I remember getting to feed them at the St. Louis zoo (I think…) and seeing their black tongues!

  12. May 10, 2012 12:19 pm

    HAHA. You make me laugh!!! LOVE that last one–that’s pretty good 🙂

    That dress is real pretty. And I LOVE that quote about things being hard. Stealing 🙂

    • May 10, 2012 12:36 pm

      Steal away!!! I love that quote! And I am so upset over this Josh Hutchinson thing… Like I literally think about it multiple times a day, as if I had some chance with him in the first place… Doesn’t help that I’ve been listening to all the Hunger Games books on tape…

    I don’t want to think about my To Do list for summer–my hubby and I are selling our house, moving across the country (which means finding a new home), and planning a trip to Europe! And I will also need to find a job now that I’ve graduated and we’ll be in a new city!

    Those bracelets are super super cute, I keep meaning to hit up the craft store over the weekend, but there never seems to be time!

  15. May 10, 2012 3:56 pm

    Lol too cute you would look great next to Prince Harry! He is the cute one between the brothers!,

  16. May 10, 2012 7:29 pm

    LOVE that dress! Although I too need an occasion to wear something like it 🙂

    I am shocked to find out Peeta is a baby!! What did you think of the guy who played Gale? I thought he was hot, but he looked WAY older than he should have! He looked like a Hollywood movie star, not someone in District 12!

    • May 11, 2012 9:04 am

      Oh I think Gale looks about the right age, I think he was supposed to be 18. Lol I was too distracted by Peeta anyway…

    hahah I showed one of my students the Peeta picture because she is obsessed with him!!! Granted she is only 12 years old and really genuinely thinks she is going to marry him..oh middle schoolers..
