It's Thursday again and you know what that means--Thankful Thursday!
I'm thankful for my running buddy. For me, running with my friend Laura is one of my favorite ways to run. Our paces are fairly similar and we get to talk. Nothing better than talking with my best frand while workin' it out. Seriously. We ran together all.the.time. in Iowa City. Short runs, long runs, weekend runs, runs starting from the engineering building where we changed in the bathroom. I mean, don't get me wrong, running by yourself is okay sometimes--especially when you need to blow off some steam--but running with Laura reminds me why I love running. I wish we could live much closer so we could run together more often, but being able to run with her at all is a blessing.
I'm thankful for scarves and boots and fall clothes. One of the good things about living in the Midwest, where we experience all four seasons, is getting to wear a wide variety of clothes. Just when I was getting sick of all my "summer clothes" (my freedom to wear all of my shorts and tank top was severely limited this year because they aren't really work appropriate), the weather changes and it opens up a whole new slew of options in my wardrobe. My favorite thing to wear in the fall is scarves! They make such an easy accessory to almost any outfit and can really dress up a boring outfit (of which I have many). Boots are another fav of mine. I bought these cute little brown boots last year and I love them. Boots keep my feet nice and dry!
I'm thankful for my 100th post! Yeah, that's right, after almost 1.5 years of blogging, I have finally written 100 posts. (This one makes 101!) Yesterday's post wasn't anything to brag about, but it marks a feat. I have managed to keep this blog alive for 100 posts and not lose interest. Dare I say I am actually becoming more interested and blogging more regularly?
I'm thankful for the 2 hour nap I took with Laura on Sunday. We run together and we nap together, it's great. Maybe we should have been productive with that extra hour we got from Daylight Savings Time, but let's just say, Saturday night got a little cray cray and we only got 4 hours of sleep. And 4 hours of sleep is definitely not enough, not even close. So after dropping our homies off at a hotel at 8:30 am and stealing hotel breakfast, we went back to Laura's, cleaned, and then got back in bed. It was glorious. I'm so glad we got to enjoy a lazy Sunday and talk about a kazillion things that had been on our minds.
I'm thankful for that raspberries were on sale this week. Because I bought two packages this week. And I ate one today and I'm eating the other one tomorrow. Raspberries may very possibly be my very favorite fruit. There up there for sure. Raspberries can get so expensive especially during the winter so it was nice to nom nom on a few before they are ridiculously priced.
Good night homies!
