Happy Thursday! I’m not sure what day today feels like, probably mostly like Wednesday, so I guess we’ll consider that a good thing! I love holidays and long weekends, but it really throws me off for the rest of the week. Anyone else? Since I’m feeling a bit off my game and scattered this week, it’s the perfect time for some thinking out loud!
Did anyone else celebrate global running day yesterday? Lane and I didn’t have time to do very much, but we did go out after work and ran a mile together! It’s nice when we have the change to run together, it doesn’t happen very often! We got in a mile each, and something is better than nothing, right?!
I ran across this the other day on Huffington Post and thought it was hilarious. It’s tweets about marriage, but most could apply to any relationship! They are good for a laugh if you’re needing one today!
The new season of The Bachelorette has started! I really liked JoJo last season and was glad she was selected as the new Bachelorette. It looks like it’s going to be an interesting season! I’m behind in my watching, but so far it seems like Chad is insane (and has some anger management issues) and I’m not sure yet if I like Jordan or not. I reserve the right to hold off on any decision until a few more episodes in.
I’m always amazed when I watch marathons are those people who use crutches, a wheelchair or handcycle, etc. but this story is incredible. This guy was born without arms or legs and crossed the finish line of a marathon. Amazing.
I’m not a parent, but I feel like the concept is the same whether you’re talking about parenting or anything. Just like saying if you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all, if you have something nice to say, say it! People hear bad things all the time, so if someone is doing something right, give them props! This article was a really great example of how saying one nice thing can really impact someone.
Ok, so I’ve mentioned before how I’m on a quest for shoes that are dressy enough to wear for work, have some arch support but don’t look like an orthotic. I thought I’d found a winner with the Fitflops, but even though I like the way they look online, when I got them, they look like an orthotic. Sent back. So I was chatting with Susan one day and she mentioned a pair of Olukai shoes that she was going to order, so I checked out their site and they had so many cute options! I ended up getting two pairs – one more casual pair and one that I can wear to work. I’m in love with both of them and I even ordered a pair of sandals to wear for the summer! I’m really wanting to pare down my clothes and shoes so I have what I will actually use and not things that I might wear once a year, if that. So yes, you could say I’m obsessed with all things Olukai. I think even Lane might be jumping on board with that too!
I’m so excited for Me Before You to be in theatres this weekend! I loved the book so much and I cried my way through the trailer for the movie, so I feel like the movie itself will be the same way, but I’m super excited to watch it. I’ve already warned Lane that I MUST go see it this weekend!
Any movies coming out soon that you are excited about seeing? Any other shoes I should try that would work for work but have a good arch support? Do you make an effort to give people compliments when you see them doing good things?
