Thursday Tidbits...

...random thoughts for a random Thursday!

*While I love a good book, I hate finishing it because I hate finding a new one. I mean I'm loving the characters and the plot and then its done and I have to start all over again. What are your thoughts on this?

*I went an entire week without running and I'm paying for it. I suggest to NOT do this if you want to keep up your cardio and speed...just saying.

*I don't live in the town where I grew up. I sometimes miss going to the store and seeing at least 3 people you know, getting hugs from my friend's parents as a hello and knowing everyone around town. It kind of makes me sad that up here, it's like a big deal if I see someone at the store that I know and even then its usually someone that comes into my work and its just a polite nod.

*Matt dropped chocolate syrup on Shadow's head and didn't clean it up. It got hard and sticky so I cut it out, yeah...the hair on his head is patchy. Matt said, "All you had to do was get a wet towel and clean it off?" I gave him the evil eye.

*I am totally loving CLIF Mojo bars!!! It's like perfect for me...pretzels, chocolate, peanut butter...and probably some other stuff that's good for you. They're dangerous though because I could eat like 10 in one setting. What's your favorite "healthy" snack?

OH! And here's the before picture from Biggest Winner, taken April 27:
I think that's all the tidbits I have for now! Matt's planning us a date this weekend...I'm interested to see what he's got planned for us...any suggestions?

First, you look great!

Second, have you read The Uglies? It reminds me a lot of Hunger Games. Just in case you want some new characters to get caught up in. I'm not finished with it, but I'm really enjoying it so far.

Do you ever think you see someone you know from your old town? I do that all the time and do double takes!

Hang in there Matt. I am still catching flack for dropping a milk jug in the kitchen, having it explode, and then thinking I got it all cleaned up--until the sunlight reveals another missed spot on the ceiling. Argh.

Looking great, Alyssa! You should be proud of coming so close to winning!

I don't know how healthy they are, but I've been eating those new Fiber One brownies. They are small, but pretty tasty.
