Post Thanksgiving Day edition.
I am thankful I ran an awesome (for me) Turkey Trot. I wasn't really feeling the run before it happened. I stayed up late drinking with family, friends, and neighbors. Then I stayed up even later watching American Horror Story (HOLY CRAP TATE! We're so fighting right now. Add American Horror Story to the things I am thankful for too.) Then the race was packed and I ran in to an old friend who I ran with for a bit and then I decided to just run. I stopped to take a few photos but I was just enjoying the whole scene. I was jammin' to my music. I was people watching. So imagine my surprise when I finished with a 9:17 pace. Holy fuck balls. That is hella fast for me. And I felt awesome.
I am thankful it was a beautiful day!
And the Factory of Sadness had no sadness going on.
I am thankful for this nugget. And his cuddles. And the spooning.
I am thankful for great friends to spend Thanksgiving with. My family did our Turkey on Wednesday and my mom is in Florida until April so I spent the day at Jess and Marc's. And I am thankful Marc used a Rambo knife to carve the turkey.
I am thankful for Christmas Ale Season. The more the merrier.
I am thankful for Starbucks coffee and this cute little mug I picked up. I wish I had a scooter but until then, I will have to settle for a scooter mug.
I am even kind of thankful that Ulta was open this morning after my workout (yes, I technically was shopping at 6:30 and I felt like an asshole but they were open so I took advantage but I hate myself a little for it) so I was able to get a crap ton of new nail polish.
I am thankful my friend has children who I can go see The Muppet Movie with so I don't have to be the creepy old lady going to see it by myself. (Jason Segel, I am thankful for you too. And your full frontal in Forgetting Sarah Marshall.)
And I am thankful for so much more.
Happy Thanksgiving---a day later.
