You Can Call Me Saucy

Thankful on a Thursday

My weekly shout out to Nish at The Outdoor Wife! Thanks again for this brilliant idea!

27.) I’m thankful for sore muscles. I don’t enjoy it but as they say, “No pain, no gain.”

28.) I’m thankful for all the support I’ve received on Twitter (Karen, Miranda, Abigail & John especially!) for Couch to 5k. Tonight will be my first 20 minute jog. I’m scared but I’m going to try my best – that’s all I can do right?!

29.) I’m thankful for the cooler temperatures that have found their way to this area. I don’t do well with heat. Now it feels like summer – not an oven!

30.) I’m thankful for birthday parties, wedding planning (other people’s!), children (again, other people’s!), quiet nights at home, phone dates & long lost friends.

31.) I’m thankful that many people I have met through Twitter & this blog are people I consider friends. You can say anything at any time on Twitter and no one judges you for it. It’s a great outlet!

32.) I’m thankful for laptops so I can sit in my living room and tweet & blog and watch a very funny episode of SNL (Joseph Gordon-Levitt is the host. PS – Thank you DVR!)

What are YOU thankful for today? XO



Hey all! I’ve been trying to find time to blog all week but have been unsuccessful. After sitting in front of a computer (actually I have TWO computer screens at my desk in order to get work done), the last thing I want to do is sit down in front of another one when I get home. Plus, it was a holiday weekend and I wanted to focus on celebrating with friends and family- I’m sure you understand. I’ve also been putting together a package for my friend Chicky who lives in Indianapolis and gave birth to her daughter this weekend. Oh, and planning dinner music for one wedding and writing ceremonies for another. Plus my house is a disaster and I have a wedding shower AND bachelorette party on Saturday. So yeah, I’m busy. But I still think I need to make writing a priority. So I’m going to let you know what my goals are for the next week or so – because I’ve found if I tell you all that you will be eagerly anticpating and counting on me to get them done (you motivate me! Thank you!) I also have a lot going on in my head that I need to get out. I need to post to this week’s Momma’s Munchies run by LCW at Waking Up Williams and I want to join the Hopeful BlogHop started by Joanna at Raising Madison. I have a rant about my endocrinologist appointment yesterday (so frustrated – but stuff that needs to happen). I also started the Couch to 5K program last week and want to tell you all about that too! So, we’ll pick up where I should – Wordless Wednesday – and see where I can get back on track before next Monday.

I had so many great pics to choose from such a mindblowing weekend it was hard to choose – but I did. You can see the rest tomorrow when you (hopefully) come back for Thankful on a Thursday (thanks Nish!). This is me & my youngest nephew JD taking in the local July 4th parade. You may not be able to tell due to my buglike sunglasses – but his eyes disappear when he smiles…just like mine. Sidenote? I can see parts of me in both my nephews (Bman has my taste is food & eating habits. JD & I have similar eyes). It’s amazing what these two boys do for my soul. And to watch them grow and see how they are a little like mommy,a little like daddy and they have some auntie, Papa & Neena in there too. It’s simply the most amazing thing I have ever been a part of (and by part of, I mean being Sis’s sister – that’s all I did 🙂 ) XO

Saucy & JD...and BIG smiles! 🙂
