Lists for Monday

While catching up this morning on some of the blogs that come to my email, I read Ali's blog and just loved her idea of making lists on Monday and also the lists she came up with! I thought I'd do a post similar to hers!

5 Things I'm Looking Forward to This Month:

-Going to Tennessee/Kentucky this weekend! Zach, Zoe and I are on the road again this weekend! We are headed to Knoxville to see Jim and hopefully go to the UT game and Lexington to visit Zach's cousin Shawn.

-Baking for Thanksgiving! If only I could decide on which recipes I want to make. So many cookies, not enough time!

-Thanksgiving! We are going to visit Zach's family for Thanksgiving. They live in Mississippi about 2 hours south of us. I love eating and visiting so yay for Thanksgiving!

-Decorating for Christmas! This will happen on Black Friday while watching Elf. I can't wait to bust out the lights and glittery gold decor. And my Santa. And my wreaths. I just love decorating for the holidays!

-The Egg Bowl! Mississippi State vs. That School Up North (TSUN/ole miss). Go Dawgs! Beat those Rebs!

4 Things On My Christmas List:

-Wall shelves. Weird I know. But I finally found the perfect wall shelves at Target while we were in Savannah so I hope I get them!

-CWX Stabilyx Compression Tights. I love compression anything. They work like a charm!

-A dark brown/chocolate colored cardigan. I cannot for the life of me find a normal brown cardigan anywhere! So I gave this item to my mom. If anyone can find one, she can.

-Asics Thermopolis Gloves. My hands get so cold running in the winter, and these are way needed. Especially since we are headed north to Yankee Land for Christmas!

-A pizza stone. Zach and I make homemade pizza all the time so we asked for one for Christmas. I think this will make our crust better so we can finally achieve the epic level of homemade pizza we've been aiming for.

3 workouts I'm doing this week:

-Speedwork sesh x 2. Yea my speedwork workout didn't happen today. I just didn't feel that good and I was super lazy. It happens. I will get BOTH of them done this week though!

-Long run. 7-8 miles. Somewhere in that range.

-Yoga session. I need to stretch more as well as cross train. Killin' two birds with one stone.

2 Goals For This Week:

-Eat no meals out until the weekend when we're away.

-Finish my defense presentation. Who knows when I'm actually defending. But while I have more spare time than usual waiting for my advisor to return to work/edit my papers/edit my thesis/exist in general I'm going to work on my defense presentation so I can be extra prepared for when life gets chaotic again pre-defense.

1 Thing I'm Thankful For:

-My goofy sister. She calls me, says the most random stories, plans out our NYC trip in 5 minutes, then hangs up. So weird but funny as all get out. Speaking of her...she's turning 22 next week! Any ideas for a gift??!! :) She likes Boston Terriers and gluten free things. And peace signs.
This is us impersonating our dogs. Zoe is happy and goofy as y'all know, and her dog Riley is a bug eyed Boston Terrier with jowls haha. So funny.
Don't judge.

  1. Decorating for Christmas sounds awesome. After college, I've never had the time or the money for decorating my room especially since I go back home
    to California for a month to celebrate Christmas.

  2. All these things are wonderful. I love eating and shopping.. so what's not to love in November? :) I have those wall shelves from Target and they're AWESOME. And have you tried Forever21 for the cardigan? I'm a sweater junky and I got mine from there. Hope you find one!!
