thankful thursday by megan

Hi! In honor of Polly…I am so thankful that it is Thursday…aren’t you? Because tomorrow is Friday and Friday is one of my favorite days…along with Sunday and Monday (morning only). I am thankful for lots of things today!

I am thankful that it did not rain last night and the Harrison Avenue Market Place was not canceled! Of course, I was so busy I did not take any pictures and I am so sorry about that. My church was in charge of kid stuff, basically. We had a face painting booth and games. My friend Kiki and I were in charge of games. It was really just one game, “pick a stick”. It was so fun! Kids lined up to pick a maximum of 3 sticks and if any of their sticks had orange on the bottom they won a prize! Of course, I let the kids pick sticks until they got an orange bottomed one, whoops! I just didn’t enjoy the thought of sending them away without a prize. So, I didn’t! The kids and parents were so appreciative that we had games and face painting to entertain the kids with…it’s such a blessing to make people happy!

I am thankful for lunch because at lunch I ate a pluot. Which is a cross hybrid of a plum and an apricot. If you did not know.

and it may be my new favorite fruit! I’ve been on a peach kick for quite some time now. The pluot was small and sweet and  I liked it very much! Small fruit are so cute.

I am thankful for my iPod touch I got yesterday. I love it so, so much! It is so cool…it’s the iPhone without the phone. Is it strange that I get online on my iPod touch more than on my MacBook? I’m just so excited about it I find myself twittering from it and checking facebook even though my MacBook is 2 feet away from me!

Oh! And I am thankful that I am cooking dinner tonight…some type of Orzo Chicken dish with goat cheese and grape tomatoes! I got the recipe from Cooking Light. I will let y’all know how it turns out. But it does have my favorite ingredient, goat cheese, in it so I am pretty confident it’s gonna be a winner 🙂

The Healthy Living Summit starts today! If any of y’all are headed to Boston or are there I hope y’all have a great time! I know it is going to be such a good thing. I wish I was able to go. Maybe next time! I am very thankful for all of the fabulous ladies behind HLS. They are seriously some inspiring and beautiful bloggers.

And most of all I am thankful for this:

“…Don’t be afraid, friend. Peace. Everything is going to be all right. Take courage. Be strong.” – Daniel 10:18-19

The agenda for the rest of the day:

– find a vegan brownie recipe

– study for PRAXIS II

physique 57 at 4:30 with Lizzy

– cook dinner

– some guilty pleasure TV watching tonight…Housewives of Atlanta, anyone?

Have a gorgeous Thursday, dolls!


waiting by megan

Currently I am sitting in my room waiting for a delivery. My sister, Lizzy, ordered a Mac a few days ago and today is the day it should be arriving. So, since I am unemployed I get the thrill of waiting for the delivery so Lizzy won’t have to drive to UPS and pick it up. It’s fine though because it is an excuse for me not to go to the gym and…practice yoga instead! Did I tell you that Lizzy and I had the bright idea to order Physique 57 DVD’s? Well we did. And my legs are as sore as they have ever been in my life. After one 35 minute workout. But, it is a good sore! We are doing it again tomorrow. Oh goodness. So, the soreness in my legs is why I think yoga is a better idea than cardio is for today. We will see.

Nothing too exciting going on today. It’s rainy down here. I have fun plans for the afternoon though- if the rain doesn’t get in the way, that is! I am meeting my friend, Jen, for coffee and if it does not rain off to Lakeview for the Harrison Ave. Marketplace.

I am so excited about the market. My church is a sponsor and I have never been before so I am really looking forward to it. There’s live music and food and crafts and cooking demonstrations. It’s such a wonderful thing! I am going to be helping out with the kids booth…most likely with crafts and such. I will try to take pictures.

I hope y’all have a gorgeous Wednesday. And, as for me I am off to do some yummy yoga 🙂
