Thursday Thoughts & Things: 02/27

by Meg on February 26, 2014

After publishing previous Thursday Thoughts posts I’ve realized that what I share throughout these particular posts isn’t really all “thoughts”. Of course there are some thoughts, but most things I share are, well, “things”. So, I renamed my post “Thursday Thoughts & Things” ;) It just makes more sense that way.

1. Last week, when I went for a pedicure and manicure with Eddie’s Mom, I chose this CND Vinylux polish for both my toes and fingers.

I had never tried this polish before as I always opt for OPI or Essie, but the esthetician told me that the CND Vinylux polishes last even longer. So, I gave it a try! One week later, even after washing dishes three times a day, weight lifting, and showering, the nail polish has not chipped! I officially have a new favourite nail polish.

2. I met up with a friend yesterday for tea (at DAVIDsTEA of course) and she presented me with this.

How sweet is she!? And how perfect are these mugs!? Oh, I have the best friends. I am so excited to drink tea with Eddie in our new engagement mugs!

3. Speaking of tea… I just cannot get enough of The Spice Is Right! I’ve gone through 300 grams of it already. Embarrassing, but true. Very, very true.

4. Something else that I’m obsessed with lately? Rainbow trout.

I wouldn’t be lying if I told you I had rainbow trout for dinner for the past week several days. I could prove it with the pictures I took of each meal, but that’d just be even more embarrassing.

5. I’ve been really lonely lately. You know, missing my Mom, Dad, and FIANCE (still feels so surreal), so we’ve been watching TV “together”.

On both Monday and Tuesday night my Mom and I watched The Voice “together” thanks to FaceTime :) It kind of feels like I am sitting on the couch with her watching our favourite show ;)

6. I’m really happy I wrote that post yesterday. I made me realize how far I’ve come over the past year.

7. I’m also really happy with the new workout program I wrote for myself. I’ve completed the first two days so far this week and am really enjoying the change even though I loved the workout program I followed throughout January and February.

8. I can’t believe in only 9 days I get to see my family again! And, how precious is this picture!?

9. I’m really excited for tonight! My friend Amanda is coming over tonight and we’re making meatza for dinner before class! :D

10. Tomorrow is High Five Friday! :D Email me your high fives if you haven’t done so yet! :D My email is adashofmeg@gmail.com

What are your Thursday thoughts?

My best friend gave me mugs similar to those for our engagement, and we use them ALL the time! Such a sweet, thoughtful gift. Also, it’s still Wednesday where I am, so I don’t have any Thursday thoughts yet haha

The mugs are adorbs! Sorry I like to shorten words, but adorbs is so appropriate for that. It’s so hard to find a good nail polish that doesn’t chip. Essie always works best for me personally, but I’ll have to check that brand out. My number one Thursday Thought is that I can’t wait to head home for “spring” (read: winter) break tomorrow. Even though it’ll be cold, I’m looking forward to family time.

I think it’s so precious that you and your mom FaceTime shows together! My mom is gearing up for me moving out after I graduate ASU this summer and nearly cries every time we talk about it. She is obsessed with The Voice. I am talking screaming, clapping, laughing, crying, the whole nine. I might have to copy you and your mom and teach my momma how to face time ;) You truly inspire me everyday, keep on shining lovely.
