Thinking Out Loud #69

It's that time of the week again. Linking up with Amanda for Thinking Out Loud. Random thoughts here we go....
1. I'm officially addicted to Gilmore Girls. I have put my other shows on hold and am binge-watching the show morning and night. I'm almost done season 2 and have successfully avoided the spoilers for the new episodes that were released last week.

2. Netflix is helping me out with my GG addiction.
Netflix has a download option now, on the app, so I can download some shows while I'm on Wifi and then watch them when I'm on a break at work. I think it'll also be sweet, with London, on roadtrips/airplanes!
3. I'm launching a holiday giveaway! I have teamed up with some of my favourite brands to do a fun giveaway just in time for Christmas. Stay tuned to my Instagram page for the details!

4. The countdown to Disneyland is on!! I still haven't told London I'm taking him for Christmas. To be fair, he doesn't know a lot about Disney but I'm still trying to keep it a surprise for now. I did show him some youtube videos and talked about going there "some day" and he loved it so I know he's going to be really excited! Our flight, hotels and car are booked so now I just have to get our park tickets and we're set. For anyone who's been to Disney before is California Adventure worth another day? We're only planning on spending one day in Disney, right now, but may have room for another if it's worth it. I haven't been in years (I went with some girlfriends in 2008 for the day) and I'm getting a little excited to go again too! Any Disney tips please share in the comments! 
5. I didn't pass my OTF coaching video. I was withheld by the head trainer in Canada. I'll get into the details, another day, but I'm still happy to be working at the studio and working towards a goal. I really love the gym and have met so many awesome people. 
6. I'm torn between the Chicago Marathon and Europe. So, my mom keeps insisting I skip the Chicago Marathon again (I had to defer last year b/c of my heart problems) and wants me to go visit one of my best friends who recently moved to Dublin instead. I really want to run another marathon but I do see where she's coming from too. The doctors haven't really figured out what's going on with my heart and blood pressure so she's worried the problems will start up again and I'll be back in the same dark, and scary, place I was for the majority of this year. We've finally come to a compromise. If another one of my friends gets into Chicago we're going but if she doesn't I'll likely go to Europe and forego the registration fee again (sigh!) 
7. I got a new Iphone! My Iphone 5 was having some serious issues so I took advantage of Black Friday sales and got a 7. So far, I love it. They didn't transfer my apps, or videos, so I still have to do that at some point. The photo quality is amazing too! I can't wait to use it in California! Plus, I found an Otterbox case that wasn't hideous! 
I had more to say but I'm off and running.... that's just my life these days! Working full-time at CTV, part-time at OTF and being a mom has my schedule jam-packed! 
Have a great day! 


  1. YES, you need an extra day for ADVENTURE Land. You'll have such a great time. It doesn't matter how old you are Disneyland is the most magical place on earth.

    1. And if you want to save money you can pack a picnic and store it in the lockers. There's a nice closed off spot near the entrance where you can sit and eat.

  2. Yes, yes, yes to the day at California adventure! It's a whole day on its own. You can get discounted multi day passes from AMA. Not a huge discount, but Disney passes have very little discounts available. Unless of course you're a California resident.
