Hello and good morning! It’s Thursday, and I’m in the mood to chat, so…
Who’s down for another edition of Thinking Out Loud?
1. Today’s breakfast = total freezer rejects.
As I was grabbing a box of waffles out from the freezer this morning, I saw two lonely waffles wrapped in baggies outside of the box. If I had to take a guess, I would say they have been sitting there for months!
Why I’ve never thought to use them first before going for the newer box is beyond me. For the record, they tasted a little like the freezer. Next time I won’t wait months before eating them.
Do you ever just grab the newer version? (Or, like me, always grab the newer version?)
My mind says use the old first, but my stomach says someone else will eat them and I’ll selfishly take the fresh one instead. Whoops.
2. This screen keeps falling off our master bedroom window…
… and it’s because Aspen keeps pushing it. We thought it was a fluke at first, but this is the second time we found the screen on the grass in our backyard and Aspen outside. She literally pushes it and jumps out from the second story!
Our neighbors even stopped by yesterday to let us know what happened. They say cats have nine lives, but geez. You’re not Catwoman!
3. Do your pets ever pose for pictures like this?
Speaking of the little troublemaker, I swear she knows when I’m taking pictures of her.
I wanted to capture her showing her belly, because I think it’s adorable, and she used her paws to clear her face and went on a modeling frenzy as soon as I started snapping. Seriously.
“This is my poker face.”
I just can’t with her. She’s so stinkin’ cute.
4. I’m in denial that #TGIT is gone for the summer.
Thursdays have become a low-key celebration night in our home. After I get home from the gym, Scott and I have dinner and enjoy the night curled up on the couch while watching my (but what has turned into our) favorite shows on ABC. I was thinking about what we should have for dinner tonight and then remembered Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal are now on a break for the summer!
No! #TGIT is like a pre-Friday break for us. Now we’ll just have to find something new on Netflix to obsess over. Any suggestions?
5. Our air conditioning went out this week…
… but it’s okay because it’s a low of 45 degrees today, which is why we had the windows open in the first place. There’s definitely a chill in the air!
(And shooting this in a tank and shorts was fun yesterday, but I refuse to wear pants while exercising outside at this point.)
Everything is fixed on the air front (fingers crossed), but as a Florida native, I find it crazy that we weren’t sleeping in pools of sweat with a broken air unit at the end of May. What. the. heck. It’s almost June, Michigan. Get yourself together.
6. Today is a rest day. No workouts, just stretching.
My body is so sore! After taking the weekend off, I guess I hit the gym pretty hard over the past few days. I woke up with a headache and an achy body this morning. You know what that means, right? It’s time to listen to my body and enjoy a rest day!
7. I can’t stop eating turkey jerky.
I need to stop buying it, because I will finish an entire bag in a day or two.
It’s becoming a real addiction, y’all.
8. This article hits a little too close to home.
Sometimes I carry these OCD tendencies around with me, but Scott’s got it even worse than I do. For the longest time, I thought he was frustrated with me, but in reality, he’s just super particular about certain things. Between the two of us, one is always nit-picking over the tiniest things. It’s pretty ridiculous and silly, and now that we are aware of it, we try to catch ourselves and jump in the other person’s shoes for a bit before we bark.
It’s a great read on relationships and understanding your spouse if you have a few minutes to spare. Remember, it’s just hamburger meat!
Well, I guess that’s it for now. I’ve got some planning to do before I head over to the gym.
See you later!
