Thinking Out Loud: Three Calendars

Thought #1:  This is a must read –>  The 20 Important Facts Dog Lovers Must Never Forget.  All of the pictures will make your heart melt.

Thought #2:  I wanna find a cute {preferably low/open back and neon} chevron dress this spring.  Dress it up with a pair of wedges or keep it simple with a pair of flip flops.  I can feel the warm weather just thinking about it.

Thought #3:  This has been my ringtone for the past couple of months.  I definitely send/receive more text messages than phone calls, but I always love hearing the my phone ring!


Thought #4:  A bagel slathered with Greek Cream Cheese, sliced strawberries, and a drizzle of honey has been my favorite {repeated} breakfast this week.

Thought #5:  An ad for Gluten Cutter appeared on my Facebook sidebar Tuesday night.  The website claims that it “is a digestive aid exclusively formulated with… plant based enzymes that specifically target and break down gluten as well as other hard-to-digest foods into simpler forms that your body can digest.”  Thanks, but no thanks.

Thought #6:  Life is crazy busy.  I have no complaints {I’m loving it all}, but there’s a lot going on.  Teaching full-time, tutoring twice a week, working at PRR, studying for the elementary ed licensure exams, training for spring races, and somehow maintaining a social life.  Thankfully, I’ve got a handful of awesome guest posts and a few fun giveaways scheduled!


Thought #7:  Speaking of work…  Working at a running store has its perks.  I’m OBSESSED.

Thought #8:  I’m currently using not one, not two, but THREE planners.  One is for school, one is for my personal life, and then I also use the calendar on my computer/phone.  I really should merge them all into one, but I’d rather not see “Art Enrichment” or “Science Lab” on my personal planner and there’s no need to know my workout schedule during the school day.

Thought #9:  I planned to review the Sunshine Burgers that I received {courtesy of Fit Approach – thanks!}, but my schedule postponed those plans.  I’ll definitely share my thoughts soon.  What I will say is that they didn’t disappoint.  Although, some of the flavor combos were…  Interesting?!


Thought #10:  Grey’s Anatomy AND Scandal return next Thursday.  Thank goodness for DVRs, otherwise I’d miss all of my favorite shows since they’re scheduled for after my bedtime…  I should consider moving to a state in the Central Time Zone.



Thanks Amanda for hosting another link-up!

Question:  Who’s your favorite character on Grey’s Anatomy?

Whatcha Think?

  1. I’m glad you reminded me Grey’s comes back next week! I am a fan of Derek, ha. He keeps it real on the show. The girls get too into it and drama. I forgot to email you! Oops, I’ll get to that today :) I like the Boca Veggie Burgers the best.

    • I’m glad the storyline has gotten good again. I think it went through a phase where it was trying to be something else and it didn’t work… I do miss the old characters though!

  2. Those shoes! That dress!! In love!

  3. I have three calendars too. INSANE. Also, I want that dress. Shopping date? 😉 Working at a running store definitelyyyy has its perks. Just wait until the reps start coming in and throwing free stuff at you!

  4. That dress is gorgeous!
    But ohmygod -that first article. I had to go give my pup a hug after reading that.

  5. I AM IN LOVE WITH THOSE SHOES! I had three planners when I was teaching too. I put big events that I needed to plan around on both, but other than that things were kept separate.

    • That’s what I did too – most of the time it worked, although I forgot to add a few after-school events on my personal calendar so when I was about to leave I was “surprised” with a meeting.

  6. I have indeed tried a bison burger and it was awesome! It was from a restaurant called BareBurger and I think it had cheese, avocado, and some other fabulous, yummy ingredients that made my tastebuds dance.
    Oh my goshhh don’t even get me started on all the cute spring and summer clothes. As much as I love boots and sweaters, the snow has gotta go.
    Best Day of My Life by American Authors is such a great song!

  7. Can you believe that I don’t even know what my ringtone is? I always have my phone on silent because I find it too distracting otherwise, so yeah… no idea. Probably one of the generic goodly Apple ones. Also… is it weird that I’ve never watched Grey’s? 😯

    • If you have time in the fall, try watching an episode of Grey’s. It’s one of those shows that you’ll either love or hate. I loved it, hated it, and happily love it again :)

  8. Gluten cutter??? What the …….

  9. Thank goodness scandal comes back next week! I’ve missed it like crazy! And that chevron dress is gorgeous! Love that color combo :) my fav veggie burger is made by Dr. Praeger…his california ones are great! And Joe is making bison burgers for dinner tonight…they’re one of our fav meals :)

    • Now I’m craving a burger and a new episode of Scandal. I can’t wait until it’s back on this fall – I read that the storyline is supposedly very different from any other season, yet equally exciting 😀

  10. That Chevron dress is PERFECT! I want one too! Favorite character on Greys- Meredith, she is my idol. HA HA! My favorite veggie burger is at a restaurant called Tom and Eddies, its an edamame burger on a whole wheat bun with feta cheese and a pesto sauce. I inhale them they’re so good!

    • I’ve never had an edamame veggie burger (Dr. Praeger’s has edamame in them, but not much) – sounds like a delicious source of protein!

  11. THAT DRESS!! Oh my gosh I am SWOONING! How adorable. I am loving how happy you are these days!! It’s amazing how things always fall into place!

    • Aw, thanks so much Brittany! Sorry for my super delayed response – I promise life has been good to me, I haven’t been in hiding 😀

  12. Love that dress!

  13. I thought I was the only one left that still watched Grey’s Anatomy!!! DVR is definitely a life (sleep) saver! I keep saying I’m going to cancel it from my plan to save money…HA!

    • I don’t think that I’d be able to watch half of my favorite shows without a DVR because I fall asleep so early 😛 #firstworldproblems

  14. Those shoes are HOT, that is definitely a great perk. And I love being busy too… makes me feel alive and I love always being productive. It’s a good feeling.
