Good morning! I feel like Thursdays are all over the place… anyone else?
I always wake up excited that Friday is just around the corner. They usually fly by. Thursday is also the night we usually have some kind of outing or event, if there is one during the week. Tonight we are going out to dinner to celebrate a special engagement!
Anyways, I guess this would be a great segue into an introduction for Thinking Out Loud. I joined the link-up a few weeks ago and thought it was fun to randomly talk about things going in our lives with y’all. Most of you seem to like this series too, so here we are.
Enjoy the scramble of thoughts!
• I think I am doing pretty well with our holiday shopping.
Or, so I think…
For the first time in many, many years, I finally won’t be scrambling around at the last minute trying to purchase gifts and send them out. Since we moved away from my family, it forces me to be on top of my game and actually mail presents on a decent timeline. So far, my best successes have come through Amazon and online Black Friday Sales! (<- most stores offer a gift wrap option upon check out too!)
• I’m still not sure if we’re doing holiday cards this year.
We didn’t send out Christmas cards last year. There was just too much going on! The year before, I made a DIY Letter Christmas Card and our friends and family loved the update and pictures.
Maybe I’ll revisit that. There sure are plenty of updates to share!
• I seriously can’t wait for the new site to launch.
There has been a lot of progress in the design and organization of the new site! Every time I look at an update, it makes me want to start using the platform… like now. We’re aiming to have everything finished by the end of next month and are still on track to launch the first week of February!
• I’m secretly hoping Scott will be okay with keeping the Christmas tree up year-round.
Only because it makes me so happy.
It’s on at all times of the day until we go upstairs for the night. I’m sure our electric bill will reflect my love for the lights, but… it’s kind of worth it.
• I just realized Ed Sheeran’s newest single is also called Thinking Out Loud.
I’ve been obsessed with the song for months, but that lightbulb and connection just happened. Hello, Captain Obvious.
• That video also just reminded me of Carrie Underwood’s latest hit featuring professional dancers.
Kudos to her. I love, love, love that video!
• I still think Ed Sheeran is one of the best artists to see live.
He’s so, so talented and very entertaining. Especially for a one man show!
• I just completed a killer circuit workout.
Phew! It’s a good one! Be sure to check back this afternoon for the details.
• I’m loving my new job.
To be completely honest, I wasn’t sure I wanted to be a personal trainer.
I knew I wanted to start a career in the fitness industry (hence my reason for becoming a CPT), but I always figured I would work with small and large groups of people in classes. I didn’t really have the desire to work 1-on-1 with clients. Welp, after almost two weeks of training to do just that, I really, really think I’m going to enjoy it.
I love being able to create workouts specifically for someone’s needs and am learning so much about exercise varieties and modifications.
When I get a little more settled and actually start training my own clients, I’ll be sure to share more information about how it’s going!
• I really like being busy.
I feel like my life just did a total 180° flip. I went from working at home all day to jumping from place to place to place. There’s definitely a part of me that thrives off of that kind of schedule. I’m loving it!
• I really love all of you.
Thank you all for being so patient throughout the changes that have been going on around here. It might take me a couple more weeks to figure out exactly when to balance blogging as much as I’d like into my schedule, but I’m determined to do it. I love stopping in and chatting with you all throughout the day.
Also, thank you for expressing your support with the new blog domain and transition. I never would have made the leap to move forward with it if you guys weren’t on board. Y’all are the best! <3
All right. It’s time for me to get moving!
I’m off to court to prove that I do indeed have car insurance. I told you… I probably shouldn’t drive in Michigan anymore. I mentioned this a couple of weeks ago, but the “Michigan Left” u-turns really got me this time. I didn’t get a ticket, but I also didn’t find an insurance card in Scott’s car when I got pulled over. Convenient, right?
Oh well. All should return back to normal this afternoon.
See ya later with that circuit workout!
