Thursday Things

1)     HAPPY 4TH OF JULY EVERYONE! I hope everyone has a wonderful day filled with barbecues, family, sun, and fun. And I hope everyone can take a moment to be thankful for all that you have, wherever you are, whatever you believe. Just enjoy the day 🙂

2)     I’ll be spending my 4th at work. I’ll be waitressing all night while doing my best Rosie the Riveter impression thanks to this lovely lady’s tutorial (I’ve been obsessed with her channel for months now and I aspire to the perfect set of victory rolls).

3)     My brother got married this past weekend. Which means majority of the family was together again for the first time in a long time. A little bit of crazy spilled out. His poor wife…


4)     In other family news: my baby sister got her temps (which I’ve learned is “Wisconsin speak” for “Learner’s Permit”) on Monday. She drove me to get ice cream. She. Drove. Me. And then I sobbed the whole way home because she’s so old. Which means I’m so old. Just kidding about the sobbing part. I waited until she dropped me off to cry.

5)     I’ve become such a sucker for pretty flowers lately. I imagine when I’m older that I’ll be some cool hippie chick living in an old farm house down south with a giant garden full of veggies, fruits, and flowers.

6)     I know this article made me think and it’s definitely something to consider for everyone who is trying to get “lean and mean” this summer.

7)     On that note, this article on 5 reasons why Fitspo sucks is kinda awesome. And again, more things to think about.

8)     I’m doing an awful lot of thinking for a summer vacation. Must. Stop. Can’t. Grow up.

9)     What is was like to play sports in high school as a girl. Incredibly accurate.

10)  Ron Swanson, a true man’s man.

11)   I walked into my mom’s house the other day to find a bowl of m&m’s, pretzel m&m’s, and honey roasted peanuts on the table. Her “own blend of trail mix. It’s healthy.” Now I know where I get it…
