LIFE AS YOU LIVE IT: Thirteen Things for Thursday

Thirteen Things for Thursday

30 October 2014

I'm throwing my Friday thoughts at you a day early so that tomorrow I can wrap the month up with goals that did/n't happen. You know how on top of the ball I have been lately, seeing that last Friday's thoughts debuted basically on Tuesday
My beloved puffer vest came in the mail yesterday and I haven't taken it off since.  
Correction: I took it off to eat some rice, and I came back to find Macy cat lying on it after she had punched some holes through it. This is why we can't have nice things.
 So much attitude.
The North End has there doggie trick-or-treating tonight at 6. Everyone meets at the Richmond Street dog run and then walks around the neighborhood commencing with other dog friends and receiving lots of treats. How cool would I be if I hooked my cat up to a leash and walked around the neighborhood with her. That might be weird. She does have one heck of a cute cow costume though.
  The invitation DOES say that "Pets of all shapes and sizes are welcome!"

Speaking of costumes! What is everyone going to be for Halloween? I'm going to be a bartender. A depressed one at that. Here's to Halloween number 50 of having to work this Holiday. But hey, If it means I can have Thanksgiving and Christmas off, I'll take it!
I have the Christmas bug... bad! If you couldn't already tell from yesterday's post I am head over heels stoked. Gifts have already started to arrive in the mail, and today I bought this beautiful metallic cardstock paper to make gift tags out of! 

I can only hope they look this good!

Favorite snacks... Nutella and dark chocolate covered pomegranates and Acai/blueberries. Yes folks, that's a spoon. #noselfcontrol
I've been mixing myself up a really fruity and scrumptious drink lately which I named the Coconut Sunrise. Laugh it up now guys, all my friends do.
It's Absolut Raspberri, Peach Schnapps, Malibu Rum, Grenadine, Pineapple Juice, and OJ.
Anyone can make it, and I'm sure it's already a founded "drink" on somebody's menu, but hey... this is what I need sometimes.
Have you guys been following this story about Brittany Maynard? She's very young (29), and is suffering from a brain tumor that will eventually end her life, however she has decided to die with dignity on November 1st by taking a fatal dose of barbiturates.
I bought a 5' x 8' rug that I don't think fits the scheme of my apartment as much as I wanted it to. Does anyone in the Boton area want to take it off of my hands? It's a fun pattern and will go with almost anything (it's grey and white). $50, Boston North End.

Speaking of selling, I'm looking to sell my lightly used brown Longchamp Le Pliage MINI Tote. There is a little wear on the bottom of the bag and in the corners, but it is still very cute and functional! Note: this is the mini version! $40

I've been feeling weak lately... as in no muscle strength what so ever. I want toned arms... don't we all. So I have started to do 10 pushups in the morning and then another 10 at night before I go to bed. I plan on increasing this number by 1 each day so that in a year I can do 365 in a row twice a day. HA, I kid. I'll probably maybe MAYBE peak at 50... if I'm feeling ambitious. So I started this little regime 4 days ago, and I cannot believe how SORE I am. My abs, my back, my face is as red as a tomato after 5... it's just 20 pushups a day. How is this possible? Reality check... I'm out of shape.

I heard that the 2014 Budweiser Clydesdale Horses commercial has just recently been filmed in Boston. A friend of mine shot a video of them going through the city, and this article says that "the Budwesier Clydesdales are on City Hall Plaza today (10/09) through Sunday as a Budweiser video crew shoots one of its "responsible drinking" ads at a couple of local bars over the weekend". I think I love the comments the most... "They're filming a responsible drinking commercial and they chose Boston"? haha Oh Boston.
 On a different note.. Boston's longest serving mayor, Thomas Menino, passed away this morning at age 71 after fighting a courageous battle with cancer. So sad. 


Stay tuned tomorrow to see how my October goals went. I can tell you one goal that has yet to be completed **cough** the gym **cough**.

Thank Goodness It's Thursday!!
