Thinking-Out-Loud

1. Hi, hi from up in the sky! Well, by the time you read this, I’ll hopefully already be hanging out in Vegas, but I’m actually writing this on the plane ride over there since I have about 2.5 hours to kill and nothing else to keep me occupied. Not that talking with you guys is a last resort, but I didn’t have a chance to pre-write this post so we’re doing a little on the fly ToLing from up in the sky today. Let’s see where this goes…

2. You know that “I know I’m forgetting something” feeling that you get right before you walk out your door? The one that plagues you all the way to the airport while you go through a mental inventory of all the things it could possibly be? Toothbrush? Check. Underwear? Check. Contacts? Check. Makeup? Check. Snacks?… Snacks?!?! Oh.crap. This may be the first time I’ve ever forgotten to take travel snacks with me, which makes me especially sad since I baked up a fresh batch of cookie dough protein granola bars just for the trip… only to leave them sitting on the kitchen counter at home. Sigh. But it’s okay. I got myself some of these…

Happy Sunday, friendly faces! How the heck are you?! I am super happy that it’s Sunday, because that means that tomorrow is Monday and that means that I can put this crazy week behind me. Oi. I don’t know what the heck it was, but I felt all sorts of scatterbrained and off this week. Heck, I’m writing this intro […]

Happy #thinkingoutloud Thursday! No idea what I’m going on about? Click here!   1. Hooooo-boy. This week has been a real doozy. Do people still say that these days? Doozy? It’s not giving me a red squiggly line, so I guess it must still be a thing. Either way, the past couple of days have been a little […]
