Thursday Thoughts

I am going to be a bit of a copycat and do a random “Thursday Thoughts” post.

I am back to work from a week’s vacation.  As I have done fairly well with getting somewhat caught up I still have so much to do.  Tomorrow I am going to lock myself in my office and turn my phone “do not disturb” light on.

I left for vacation and neglected to share the pictures from the 50th Anniversary Celebration that we hosted for a fellow co-worker.  Everything turned out great and we had over 250 customers come out!  I got most of my decoration ideas from Pinterest including the pom-poms and 50 photo collage.  I designed the logo for the event which we had put on the t-shirts and framed for his gift.
Congrats again Keith!

This morning my sweet friend, Laura, and I started back running.  We did 2 miles and it felt so great.  She is training for a half marathon in December in Vegas.  Think I can talk Tyler into this?!

My parents are coming up for the weekend tomorrow.  I am so excited to see them.  It hasn’t been that long but I begged them to come because I just sincerely want to spend time with them.  My dad invited my aunt and uncle to come as well.  I really hope they come too!

When I went to put on my favorite pair of jeans this morning they were reeeally tight in the thighs.  I loved all the food on vacation but it caught up with me, ha!  No regrets…best.fudge.ever!  But I knew it was time to be proactive so I started using My Fitness Pal today to help me track calories and log my runs.  I used livestrong several years ago but decided on My Fitness Pal since my sister is using it.  I love that I can track on my phone.  My friend Kady uses it religiously and recently lost 50 lbs!  If you are using My Fitness Pal “friend” me.  My username is kelley201.

Keeler is going through a phase where he is constantly telling me how much he loves me & making funny comments…I am soaking it up!  Yesterday he was eating Swedish Fish.  You know, the sweet red gummy candy.  Well, he looks at me and asked, “Did these fish use to be in water?”  I said, “no silly.”  He then replied, “Well, they are really juicy!”

I have been following The Anderson Crew blog for a while and have been meaning to link up with her  "embrace the camera" Thursday.  I love this concept.. so true so please check it out.  

Hope you enjoyed my randomness.  Have a wonderful weekend :)



  1. I think you can definitely talk Tyler into this! Tell him that he and Todd can go to the casino while we run!

  2. Now that is what I call a John Deere party! I love it!

    Your my hero! You run too! I'm so jealous. My only running comes in the form of chasing runny noses!

    Thank you so much for the sweet prayers. It's been a long road and we have so very little support most days. The prayers were surely felt!
