I first saw the Thinking Out Loud posts on A Merry Life, and I liked the concept so much that I decided I’m going to join in on the fun. Be sure to check out Amanda’s blog, Running with Spoons, to hear all the thoughts.
Here’s what I have milling around my mind this afternoon…
I have 7 1/2 days until I leave for Hawaii, and I cannot wait! I haven’t taken a real vacation in over 6 years, and after all the hard work I’ve put in over the past year in transforming my body and my lifestyle, this trip is my reward. I’m really looking forward to all of the activities: swimming in the ocean, snorkeling, hiking Diamond Head, and even taking surf lessons. Not to mention the seafood and sushi! I have almost everything I need for the trip; I do want to get a couple of pairs of sunnies and some flip flops.
Speaking of which, I’m all about buying quality items that last, so I do plan on purchasing some higher end sunglasses. But I also know that things can happen, so I’m also planning on buying some cheapies, too. Here’s what I’m thinking:
And then for the cheapie, fun sunnies, where better than Target?
I love the polka dots and the pink, RayBan-esque styles for a couple of fun pair.
I just got an email from Amazon about a credit toward Kindle books because of some settlement. So, my question is, what books should I buy? I have enough for two new books. What have you been reading and loving lately?
Since today is Throwback Thursday, I thought I’d share a photo from my sophomore year of high school:
What are your thoughts this Thursday? If you have a few to share, you should write up a quick post and link it up on Running with Spoons.
