Hello friends! I am joining Amanda at Running with Spoons for her “Thursdays are for…Thinking Out Loud” series. What’s in it for me? A brain dump. What’s in it for you? Total randomness! Enjoy!
NEW ‘DO! I mentioned LAST Thursday day that I was off to a hair appointment…and that I was itching for a change. Well…it happened…and I LOVE it! I found a local salon with lots of positive recommendations via Yelp…and decided to try it out! I arrived about 10 minutes early for my appointment to chat with my new stylist (who I LOVED by the way!) and we discussed 1) on a scale of 1-10, how much did I want a change? 2) what was the WORST hair experience I have ever had? and 3) What was the BEST hair experience I have ever had? Then she walked me through her color recommendation (overall blonde highlights to look natural, not streaks), trim off a few inches with a blunt cut, and add a side-sweep bang! I said…GO FOR IT!
Maybe I should move to Asia. Why – you ask? Purely so I can run better/faster/longer/stronger! See below…I’m not crazy!!! My best runs lately seem to come after an awesome Japanese/Thai/Vietnamese lunch.
Good Reads. Hmmm….I’m not doing so hot in the reading department so far for 2014. I have set a goal for the year to read 40 books….I’ve finished a whopping total of O-N-E. On the plus side…that one book was stellar!
We’re TV Junkies. There’s no way around it….we LOVE to watch TV series (and movies!) In the first three months of 2014 we’ve watched T-E-N series. Now…to be fair…it’s been really, really cold some nights and weekends!!! Those are the days that we wrap ourselves in blankets and never emerge from the depths of the comfy couch!
I traveled a lot last year. A LOT. I can’t remember why now…but I was participating in a travel survey that was focused on total travel in one year. The first part of the survey broke down Business Trips versus Personal Trips – I completed 19 Business vs. 3 Personal. The second part broke down those trips into Weekdays and Weekends. My 19 Business Trips spanned a total of 47 weekdays and 13 weekends. My 3 Personal Trips spanned a total of 9 weekdays and 15 weekends. That is a GRAND TOTAL of 84 days away from home. The third part broke down locations (3 countries and 6 cities) and hotel preferences (Hyatt and Marriott brands).
New winter activities! I’m SO excited to try cross-country skiing and snowshoeing this weekend!!!! I hope we look as graceful as the couple in the pic below….
Does anyone else have these problems??? The first step is admitting I have a problem…
What’s on your mind?
