I’m declaring today a classic Thinking Out Loud Thursday and saving a “deeper” post for next week. Look at me working ahead of time. The best part? I can skip the long intro…
1. Remember for my half birthday I said I wanted to treat myself to something? Well that something arrived. I bought my sister one of these necklaces from Bauble Bar for Christmas and have been jealous ever since. The necklace is gold…not sure what’s going on with the color here.
2. I’m officially half way through “Born to Run.” Yeah, I know most people would have finished the book weeks ago but I’ve only been reading on the subway. And sometimes I skip reading in favor of closing my eyes. Just being honest. The book is finally picking up, or I guess I should say I’m finally getting into it. The stories are pretty incredible.
3. This week is going by at a snail’s pace. I have to work all day Saturday so I can’t even look forward to Friday. Boo. Ok, done complaining.
4. This made me smile. Reason one million that Whole Foods is my favorite place. Even better: I looked like sh*t, so it was kind of ironic.
5. Posts you need to read (aka posts I loved):
It’s Okay…But Only If– Snack Therapy
Why I Stop Reading Your Blog– The Blonder Side of Life
Here’s Why Running is Actually Terrible– Buzzed
Pride in Ability vs. Pride in Appearance– Pumps & Iron
6. Since there hasn’t been anything on TV that I really want to watch (other than ESPN), I’ve been watching American Ninja Warrior at night. I really want to try a course even though I’m 99% sure I’d fall in the first 5 seconds.
7. I’ve been addicted to smoothies this summer. As in I’ve had at least one every other day. I’m still loving kale + spinach + banana + mango + coconut water or almond milk. I’m investing in a blender when I get back to Florida because I don’t see this habit going away soon.
8. I updated my list of favorite gluten-free restaurants in the city and will post an update on ClassPass Adventures tomorrow.
That’s all I’ve got for today! Make it a great one :)

By shows, I finally forced myself into Netflix this summer, but I still don’t watch TV. Right now I’m on season 3 of Dexter though! It’s good!

I’ve been watching more TV than Netflix for some reason. Waiting for new seasons of shows to go on!
Brie @ Lean, Clean, & Brie says
Woo so glad you are starting to like Born to Run! The stories are so good and every time I finished a chapter I was always so inspired to go outside and run. I just started reading Eat and Run and am really liking it so far!

I get the random urge to run while I’m reading on the subway. Not the best location for that haha
I’ve been watching American Ninja Warrior at the gym while I run and it’s seriously the best pump up show. How can I complain about running when they have to climb up the death latter or swing on a giant log that tosses them into oblivion. SO fun to watch. It’s like adult double dare. lol

Haha that’s exactly how I describe the course too! Like it’s a death wish for me. And the wall at the end…craziness

I love ANW! It’s one of my favorite shows. It was filmed in Pittsburgh this year about 5 miles from my apartment, but the ticket situation was a mess and none of my friends or I made it in, even though we booked tickets months ago. Such a bummer but oh well! It would be so fun to try a course, but I’m also sure I would fall and probably rupture something. Seeing some of the injuries these athletes get freaks me out!!
Yes! Last night’s episode took place in Pittsburgh. I’m sure I would get hurt, if not just embarrass myself. They are crazy strong!

Love that necklace. I am a big fan of gold delicate necklaces – that’s basically all I wear. That smoothie is so pretty and green. I used to be really into smoothies but am not so much lately for some reason! I haven’t had one in a year! Come make me one thanks :)
I think this will be my staple necklace now. Before this summer I very rarely had smoothies. If you let me play with your dogs, I’ll make you a smoothie (even though I normally buy them haha)

That necklace is so cute!! I only wear my one Tiffany open heart pendant that I got when I was a flower girl in my aunt’s wedding when I was 2 years old. I pretty much never ever ever take it off. Those links are so good! Opening some more tabs to read through them this morning.
TV shows: Revenge, Scandal, and Pretty Little Liars. Oh, and sometimes wedding shows on TLC or House Hunters haha
Sarah @pickyrunner recently posted…TOL: One More Day!
I have bracelets that I wear all the time but not a necklace. Hopefully this will fit the bill! I’m caught up on Scandal and Revenge (it’s so bad but addicting) but never got into PLL for some reason. House Hunters is a go-to favorite too.
Loving the bar necklace. I rock layered necklaces every day and have desperately been looking for a simple bar. I think I found it!!! :) Also – Organic Avenue was such problems for my bank account haha. I used to get their coffee smoothie… Obsessed. And I’m such a TV junkie it’s slightly embarrassing… instead of listing shows I’m just going to say Jeopardy and anything on Bravo are my favorites! Hope the week goes by quickly for you!!!

My sister wears her’s all and it matches everything perfectly. Oh gosh I should buy stock in Organic Avenue haha…

I am OBSESSED with that necklace! Anything dainty and gold is right up my alley and I’ve been eyeing that style for the longest time. Glad you were able to treat yo’self ;)

I’ve been wanting one for a while so I’m glad I finally bought it! It goes with everything and always looks classic.
Cute necklace! And gotta love Whole Foods.. ;)

I love Bauble Bar! That necklace is beautiful!

Thank you! I have a few necklaces from there that I really love too.
I love that necklace! Also I totally love smoothies in the summer. They are so refreshing!

They are so perfect after a run too! And you can add whatever you’re in the mood for.

My favorite show right now is definitely Suits…Major crush on Harvey, but the show is really good and I am kind of getting tired of Bravo even though it is mindless TV watching when I am totally fried at night. :) Trust me I haven’t given it up yet…HA!

Bravo is great for mindless TV watching. But whenever I watch Million Dollar Listing I get slightly jealous/depressed haha
Amanda @ .running with spoons. says
Smoothies have been the love of my life for months now, and I’m pretty sure I haven’t gone without at least one a day since early this year :lol: My blender sees so much action, that it’s something I’d seriously consider running and grabbing if my house was on fire :lol:
Amanda @ .running with spoons. recently posted…. thinking out loud #138 .
Hahaha that’s how I am with my jar of almond butter…which is awesome in smoothies :)
Lacey @ Runs and Roses says
I love that Whole Foods sign :) I started watching Grey’s Anatomy last night (I know, a little late in the game here) and I kinda didn’t like it…. I’m going to keep trying to though haha.

DON’T GIVE UP! Grey’s is the best. No quitting on this one ;)
Rebecca @ MyEagerFeet says
I still haven’t watched Friends, and most people think I’m crazy! I’m mostly stuck waiting for new seasons to be released on Netflix. (Though I wish they would do it before football season starts…I’m going to be overwhelmed!) I’m still so jealous of your Class Pass!
Rebecca @ MyEagerFeet recently posted…Guilt
Yes, you are crazy ;) I need Netflix to release new seasons before football too. Ah that got me excited for fall!

I read Born to Run last summer and I have to say, it made me want to run long distances! My favorite show right now on Netflix is Grey’s Anatomy. I only just started watching it and I’m only on season 3.

It is really inspiring and crazy at the same time. These people are incredible! Grey’s Anatomy is my all-time favorite show (next to Friends). It kind of drags on after season 8 but it’s still great.
