Thinking Out Loud #9

Once again, I'm linking up with Amanda for "Thinking Out Loud."

If you don't know how it works check out her first post. Basically, it's a chance for you to get all your random thoughts out and then link up with others doing the same.

1. Every since I bought a new house, I've spent a ridiculous amount of time online shopping for deals. Seriously, I'm trying to get everything I want, within budget, but it's proving to be difficult. I also wish I was an interior designer and knew exactly what would look good together. I still like this couch but I found a sectional on sale that I may end up with. Who wants to decorate my house for me?

2. I've almost reached my goal of a 3 minute plank. I decided to challenge myself and see if I could reach 3 minutes in 2 weeks. It's only been four days and I'm almost there! Tuesday night, I managed to hit 2:45. I find it best if I distract myself while I'm planking so I usually pull up my blog lovin app and select a blog to read while I plank. Try it, it helps! I'm planking and keeping up my running streak.

3. I feel like a terrible best friend. My friend, Courtney, had her beautiful baby girl Quinn and I still haven't seen them. It's tough for me to be six hours away and, with everything going on, I just haven't been able to get out there. I've had to reschedule twice. I know having a new baby is tough (add a two-and-a-half year old to the mix too) and I wish I could be a better support system for her. I already have two weekends picked out to try and make the trip so I'm really hoping one of them works for both of us. Here's a baby Quinn photo because she's so freakin' adorable!

4. I signed up for the Calgary Colour Me Rad 5K and you should too! Honestly, Colour Runs are SOOO fun! They aren't timed and it's a great excuse to get together with your running buddies, or all levels, and have some fun.  There's a big group of us that have signed up for the 10am wave (June 27th) so, if you're local, you should join us! For some an added incentive, there's a beer garden after! I did it last year with my friends DanielleJenBeckyLindsey and Tawnya. If you're interested in taking advantage of a $24 dollar deal (while it lasts) click HERE.

5. I am obsessed with cereal lately. I buy it for London and he doesn't even really like it. I've been eating it almost every day. Does it make it better that I top it off with a ridiculous amount of fruit and hemp hearts? ;)

6. My list of online auction items continues to grow. A HUGE thank you to everyone for continuing to support my fundraising efforts for the NYC Marathon! I have about a dozen items that'll be up for auction and more items are coming in every day. I'm hoping to have it live in a couple weeks (after I get moved and settled.)  A special thank you to my friend Kim for putting me in contact with one of her connections! 

Alright, that's all I have time for today. Have a great Thursday!!

Is there anything you'd like to see in the online auction?
Do you like furniture shopping?
What's your favourite kind of cereal?
