Thursday Thoughts

June 7, 2012

Hey everyone!!! It’s THURSDAY! Which means that it is almost FRIDAY!!!! Yayyyy!!! Haha honestly I felt like today was Thursday all day. That’s what you get for starting your job on a 4 day week… Ahhhhh. Don’t get me wrong, I’m loving my internship. It’s just that I finish lunch around 12, and have 5 hours left with nothing to break it up. I’m really hoping I get asked along to a meeting or two today or tomorrow. It would be so nice to get away from my desk just for a bit!

Well, another Thursday means another round of Thursday Thoughts! Per usual they are all over the place! Some from my brain and some from this weekend’s limited pinterest browsing.


  1. How cool is this key!? If I actually had the ambition to do this, I would so cover my keys in glitter! Anyone want to do it for me?

step 1 was to apply good ole Elmers Glue to the key.   Step 2   Shake glitter onto key.  Let dry for a hour.   Repeat steps 1 &2 for the back side of the key  One might ask, how do you keep the glitter from coming off the key?  SEAL it with nail polish top coat sealer!


2.  I’m pretty sure the lawyer I share my office with must think I’m crazy. I drink insane amounts of water and am constantly leaving to fill up my water bottle or use the restroom. If I time it to do all that in one trip, rather than going at different times, I feel like I’ve succeeded at something…


3. I signed up for the Chicago Rock N Roll Half Marathon!!!! They had a $20 special yesterday for National Running Day so I decided to go for it! I wanted to do a half sometime in July/August anyway for my training, and I’m excited to be doing a Rock N Roll Race after hearing so much about them! Who’s doing it with me!??



4. Another DIY project! I love sampling different kinds of cheese (thanks to my mother’s upbringing, I spent more time in Better Cheddar than I’d care to share) and this would be a great way to remember which is which!

5.  Tomorrow is a VERY SPECIAL birthday. Can anyone guess whose it is?

6. Yesterday I went on a 4 mile run before work and for part of it I wound through the zoo. The polar bear was out PLAYING. Yes, PLAYING. It was probably one of the coolest things I’ve seen. Here’s a video of a just a snippet. He was so ridiculously cool. And cute.



7. I really want to run a race in Alaska now! I spend way too much time looking at that map… Actually, I already have the goal of going to all 50 states (I’ve been to 30!), maybe I should do a race in all 50 states!


8. This is something I’m really working on! I see other women and think, if I were just that thin, or just that good of a runner, or just that smart or successful, then I would be so happy! But those things don’t make you happy, YOU decide to be happy.



Are you a fan of sampling cheeses?

Do you find yourself putting others on a pedestal and comparing yourself?

    And I looove cheese!

    over the years, I have learnt I am happiest when I don’t compare myself to others 🙂 it takes A LOT of practice, but I’ve been quite successful 🙂

    I love that DIY project! LOVE!

    Is it YOUR birthday?? 😉 I’m a June baby too!

    Love that key! And I totally compare myself to others. It’s something that I definitely need to work on! YAY for birthdays 😀

    I love cheese! Probably too much, it’s my biggest food weakness 🙂 Happy early birthday!

  6. June 7, 2012 8:43 am

    30 states?? Wowza! I’ll have 6 of the 50 states down by the end of this year….long way to go! Which has been your favorite so far?

    i used to compare myself to other women a LOT! i still catch myself doing it from time to time, but i’ve gotten better at it in the past year or so. i love that quote! and is tomorrow YOUR birthday?!?!?

    Love that glitter key!! I so want to try it 🙂
    I’m guessing tomorrow is either your birthday or (and this was my first though) Molly’s birthday!
    That would be so cool to do a race in Alaska! I’ve been twice and it’s one of my favorite places. I can’t wait to go back!

    A compare way too often and it is certainly not happy. Love cheese and I love that idea. I also saw painting pots that chalkboard paint and then you can label what the plants or seeds are.

    I saw that key on pinterest and I’m totally going to try to do it for my new house key!

    Love trying out new cheeses. And I can’t believe you get to run through a zoo-Chicago is pretty cool 🙂

  12. June 7, 2012 11:00 am

    ahh love the polar bear! so cute!

    Anything is better with glitter- that key is awesome! How does the glitter stay on though?

    I’ll be running the Chicago Rock n’ Roll half! It will actually be my first! 🙂

    I think so many of us can relate to number eight, you have a great approach to it. Nice job!

    First of all, yay for the RnR half!!!! In running it too and am so pumped. I hear great things about it and Im sure it will live up to all the hype!

    Second, I’m the exact same way at work. No joke, I go to the bathroom at least 6 times during the work day. And I bring my water bottle each time.

    I LOVE the quote. Ever since I was a little girl my father told me to pretend I was a race horse with blinders on. Don’t worry about the “competition,” with others around you. Have your goal, look straight ahead, and go for them. 🙂

  19. June 7, 2012 7:23 pm

    I just have a goal to run in all 50 states, doesn’t have to be a race. It’s cheaper that way 🙂

    Also, I LOVE the polar bear at the LP zoo. Love him! I could sit and watch him all day. Thanks for taking and sharing the video.

    I’m so sad that I can’t do the Chicago Rock and Roll Half. It is on my bucket list but I am in class that day. Total Bummer. Enjoy the racing season!
